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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Personally I would get a tooth brush a Nitromors on it, then I would stain it with walnut water based dye before oiling.

    Don't do anything with it mate. If your going to stain it do that and oil the lot, but I have done about 7-8 stocks now and not touched the chequering on any of them mate. I love the contrast of the colours. :)

    it all depends on the colour of the finish you want. if you look at my AA S410 album, you will see it looks like a walnut stock, its a beech stock stained with walnut and the danish oiled to seal it.

    iv never seen "walnut oil" so cant really comment on it, but i use Rustins (I think it is anyway??) walnut stain and Rustins Danish oil. I have also used Tea (yes really the tea you drink) to stain a BSA Superten stock, and then made a mix of almost 50/50 boiled linseed oil and beeswax to seal that, in my opinion its the best stock i have stained for the finish i got (thanks john! ;) ).

    i would recommend searching google images for what shade you want it, then get more precise answers once you know roughly what you want mate. :)

    If you want it the same colour as the S410 in my album, you will need to stain it walnut, 3 coats off, and then Danish oil.

    I quite like the look of just oil, but wanted the S410 to be a walnut colour, but it's personal choice really mate. :)

    trust me use liquid glass to finish it, you dont see a sheen of it just makes it imperviious to knocks and fluids wont effect the look of the timber, we use it on antique furniture thats going into pubs and resturants to stop the water damage and knocks and bangs use it onall my stocks
