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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    I'm not after the standard wood type, I'm after the thread size and pitch of the sling studs that have the threaded nut on the back on them. I'm fairly sure they are specifically designed for use with bipods.

    if anyone has one they can measure, quite accurately, I would really appreciate it.

    Yeah it's nice to be back on the forum to be honest. I get a chance to see what's happening in other peoples permissions and rifle/shooting items.

    Errr, why?

    Bipods are usually designed to fit on sling studs, most bipods also have a fitting so you can still fit a sling. There are a few reasons I know of for fitting something other than the woodscrew type - a very thin fore end that wouldn't be strong enough for a woodscrew, a buddy bottle type (i.e. a Rapid) that needs a clamp round the bottle, or where someone doesn't want to drill the stock and needs a stud that will replace a stock screw, or a springer (where you don't want a bipod anyway).

    If your stock is too thin for a woodscrew the size of the screw doesn't matter - you'll just use a machine screw type (with a nut on the inside) and drill a hole to fit. If it's to replace a stock screw then you will need something to match the existing hole.

    What gun is it for?

    Errr, so I can machine a collar to thread the screw into. Is this a satisfactory reason?

    I'm well aware of the how's and why's to fit bipods.

    The type of rifle is completely irrelevant.

    Anyway, to answer my own question, uncle mikes quotes a #10 X 32tpi. Done. Now to find a tap set!

    I apologise, I thought you were trying to be a smart arse.

    Either way, it didn't help with the original post.

    Thank you for taking the time to reply.

    Hopefully I will get a tap set from work for the weekend, I have a few hours on the lathe on Sunday, but I got a few bolt handles to make first.
