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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Earlier this summer i picked up an HW95K in .22 cal from a chappie through freeads:eek:, it was in reasonable condition cosmeticaly but when the chap offered me a test fire it i was quite dissapointed, it twanged, it kicked, it smoked and it farted like i've never heard from any springer that i've ever owned, i was ready to backout of the deal there and then but with a bit of bartering with the seller i managed to get, in my opinon, a good deal and a very very cheap HW95K.
    Now i've always liked the 95, when i've shouldered them in the past they always seem to feel right for me and i've always like tinkering (fettling) with my springer airguns so thought i would use this one as a bit of a project gun so that following weekend it was in as many bits that it takes to build a 95!
    When i removed the spring and piston from the cylinder is wasn't difficult to understand why it twanged, kicked, smoked and made the horrible farting noise that it did, so, after a lot of cleaning, spring polishing, piston lightening down to 200g (from 255g), TbT Short stroke, Top-hat and Guide kit, Aussie Seal (Red), Trigger sear polishing, enlarged the TP to 3.4mm, new breech seal and decent lubes, i finally had a smooth shooting (11.2ftlbs) HW95 - BUT, it then looked in my eyes, plain or just ordinary!... it was then that i remembered seeing a shrouded barrel posted somewhere on the AGF, i managed to track down the image as being one of @shauny shrouds with brass muzzel & breech ends so, off the barrel went to Wales for a shroud fitting with an inbuilt moderator & unbeleavably, i sent it on a friday luchtime and it was back in the rifle on monday afternoon, Shauny and Parceforce were amazing (even with his badly damaged hand!).
    I then thought, there's still some room for improvement so, i took up @nath92 on one of his offers for a stock refinish, i told him the colour i would like plus the rosewood cap and spacer fitting, it came back lookng just how i wanted it.
    I added a brass trigger gaurd and safety button and topped it of with an Hawke Airmax 2-7x32 (not sure on the scope mounts though so will probably source a 1 piece at a later date).
    I don't think i've finished it completley yet but i just want to get to the range now and get shooting it and see what pellets it likes out to 30+yards.
    Hope you like it as much as i do.:thumb::)

    Very nice mate, like it. :)
    My 95 likes Weihrauch F&T & JSB Exacts (which I think are basically the same pellet?). :thumb:
    Does the shroud also act as a mod too?

    Thanks, i have several types to test including the one you have suggested.
    The shroud is about 3" longer that the barrel with a few baffles within.

    You’ve made a nice job of that. I’m fancying another springer to have a fettle with myself.

    Thankyou, I’ll see if I can get a better photo of it.

    Shaun, One thing I will say for your future reference just in case you have make another shroud for a 95 is that the brass end on the breech end needs a bit more of a step down as it slightly brushed around the end of the stock when cocking, I had to take a couple mill of the stock and redo .
