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.. I'm looking for a silencer for my HW110, it's an FAC .177 model and has quite a bark.
    Almost all of the silencers I've seen so far are for both 177 & 22. So I'm guessing something like a 7mm passage for the pellet. Then I found a HMR 17 Silencer. Would this be suitable for a 177?
    Any thoughts, experience with silencers on 177 would be appreciated.
    The FAC HW110 has a 600mm barrel----so the ideal silencer would not be too long, maybe even something like a shroud..

    I have seen his work, and the revues are excellent... my problem is I'm living in Denmark and I need a permit for a silencer.
    The permit is model specific and I'd have problems importing it.

    Fac in .177 isn't much more than sub12 power here, about 6fpe more.
    The new Hugget Astile modular silencer would be a good one as you can add extra chambers to get it even quieter or order more sections when buying it. Have a watch of AAR on Air on YouTube he does a full video on silencers and what decibels they are at. Worth a watch.

    Try replacing the baffles with smaller id holes first, it makes a difference. On my .177's I use a 5 or 5.5mm hole

    A good dedicated airgun silencer will always be more efficient in airgun use than a firearms silencer. Get a known good dual caliber silencer that you can open up and have caliber specific baffles made for it. Alternatively you could get a big silencer where there's really no difference with baffle hole size at 12 fpe.

    i replaced the two discs (7mm) in a weihrauch mod with 6mm bore diameter ones and the acuracy went down the hole. only tried it with one rifle and switched the discs back.
    ordered a caliber specific .177 mamba slimline vom air fective and the acuracy remains. this mod is much smaller (but does still a really good job)
    maybe the bore on the tested rifle is off center and with the longer weihrauch with more baffles the pellets are close to clipping. i have heard that the acuracy can go down the river if pellets not passing the bore diamter of the mod centered

    i bought the discs in a bike shop. they are used in forks and shock absorbers:

    for example:
    https://www.superiorengineering.com.au/superior-shock-absorber-shim-stack-300-rebound-pack-28029
    https://www.accu.co.uk/en/704-shim-washers

    its really nice to have some different sizes around if you building selfmade mods!!

    Air Arms Q-Tec silencers are calibre specific.

    I prefer a .22 on a .177.

    You could get a silencer made off a forum member

    Aren’t HW silencers calibre specific?

    they’re excellent

    I have a .22 huggett magna on my FAC huntsman... it truly mutes it to a dull pop

    but it’s a very large silencer
