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.

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. 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.

    For me it feels nicer than the standard CS500 far handier - the work was done by CS at point of order btw. I do have another 80 with a standard sized CS500 which is fine for what it is for. Oddly my current range favourite 80 is a .177 one in the factory stock!

    Just showing you it can be done. Most of this was done with an old woodworking vice in a Black and Decker Workmate and hand tools.

    In your case you need to marks lines on the wood with a B2 pencil then cut the bits off you don’t want. I’d sand all the stippling off the forend and you’ll be closer the the original MK1 design.

    If you’re sanding make sure you use a sanding block. I’d start with 80/120 grit and work down 240, 320, 400.

    You’ve got my number if you want to chat it over or want to borrow any tools.

    The stocks are all CS varieties. There’s a CS700, a CS800 and an Impact GSX600 stock. They’ve all had various alterations including slimming down of the forend and laser chequering/stippling removed.

    I can't see why there is any argument as to whether it gets altered or not. The CS is a custom stock, altering it still makes it a custom stock not an OE one. Most buy rifles with the intention of keeping them, unless you're a dealer that is, so it shouldn't matter what you do to them to make them "yours" future resale shouldn't come into it.
    "I can't do that to make it a better gun or suit me better and make it more comfortable in case I want to sell it in a few years".....borrox (says the bloke who's chopped an HFT500 down to a carbine, still had quite a few offering to buy it but it's mine and that's it :D )

    Before you do anything remove the butt pad and see how it feels with a shorter length of pull. Just the butt pad makes a huge differance.

    If I was doing the job, I'd make up a jig to hold the stock true and then do the work on a bandsaw. Chop saws and mitre saws could be on the fierce side.

    Not everyone has access to them though Nobby, there are other options as long as you take your time.

    Hello chaps,

    Thanks for all the feedback.

    So I had the 80 out earlier, shot with the CS stock. Despite hand grip fitting like a glove the rest isn’t...

    I thought sod it and swapped to the right handed MK1 stock to see if it’s just be. Now despite being a lefty and the MK1 stock palm swell / lack of, it feels substantially smaller in LOP and overall feel length. Feels a lot more pointable and easier when standing. A few shots and I found my rhythm.

    I was popping 1” spinners at 25 yards.

    10 shots under 5p at 25 yards.

    The CS feels more unstable, can’t work out why...,foregrip length/ adjustable pad who knows.... despite the fact is lefty, cheek piece etc etc

    Needless to say I’m going to stick to the MK1 stock for now, keep an eye out for a lefty MK1 if there is such a thing and weigh up my options on the CS.

    Thanks for all the advice, I won’t be cutting it! Hurrah some of you say!

    Thank you

    Could it also be the cheek piece height Matt, if you look at the picture of the blingy CS700 with chequering under the forend I had to lower the cheek piece to accommodate the user.

    Could well be mate, maybe another reason for the TX - perhaps my long moon face likes low cheek / chin pieces!
