1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Hi all, first time post but been around airuns for donkeys years. Recently acquired an old 77k and I'm wondering whether the existing stock could be replaced by a 97 stock? Would this fit? Also, looking for recommendations on a decent silencer and where could I source a sling etc. Will be going back to my old hunting ways lol

    Cheers guys!

    For a sling you could do a lot worse than contacting Leaky5 on here. He makes paracord slings that are very good value and quality. See his thread in the sales section for more details. Mattw975 makes excellent moderators to your specifications - he has a thread in the trade sales section. Both members can also be contacted by PM.

    Cheers,

    JR

    Thanks for the replies and the tips. Over the next few weeks I need to sand the stock down and have the metal re-blued. Also need to add sling, silencer and new scope next month but will definitely contact those suggested. I knew the 97 was almost the same as the 77, but thought there may be slight differences in the screw alignments etc. Cheers, and Happy New Year to you all!

    I wouldn't sand it, if I was stripping the stock - you have to remove loads of finish that is absorbed pretty deep into the wood, and if you don't get all of it it will play hell with the new finish, and if you do get all of it you'll have shrunk your stock and ruined your chequering. If you can find any, use old-school Nitromors (not the new stuff, which is cack). That'll rip the old finish off in pretty short order and will have you ready to apply the new finish quickly.

    If your going to use open sights id stick with the 77 stock due to the lower cheek peice.

    As already said use a good quality paint remover such as nitromorse. I apply it then scrape it off with an old credit card and the only thing i get close to the chequering is a tooth brush

    If your 77k is a MK2 or MK3 (three arrester holes for the scope and an anti beartrap) it will drop straight into a 97k stock. :)

    If your 77k is a MK1 (two arrester holes for the scope and no anti beartrap) then you will have to fit a bush in the front trigger guard screw hole. :(

    From memory the bush needs to be 15mm OD X 7mm ID X 20mm long.



    Hope this helps





    All the best and a Happy New Year - Mick

    A 97k action will drop straight into a MK2 or MK3 77 stock --- to fit it into a MK1 77 stock easily it would be best to remove the anti beartrap and its fixing lug and use a 7mm screw in the front trigger guard hole.






    All the best Mick
