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.

    I'm in need of a 26mm Weihrauch piston. If it's any use I have a 30mm HW80 piston that I could swap.

    Cheers,

    Jr

    97, but I believe they may be the same piston. Would you want to sell or swap?

    The diameter is the same but the length of the piston or piston rod might be a little different. It's ages since I faffed with a 97 and I can't remember whether the dimensions are in fact the same.

    The piston I know I have is from a 99s - it may be shorter :(

    Do you have a pooched one to measure for comparison ?

    It's OK - I just found my old notebook with some 97 piston measurements. I'll have a rummage through my drawers ;) tomorrow and get back to you once I've found the piston and measured it.

    If it will fit you can have it for the price of postage.

    If you would, that would be great. Will look forward to agreeing a deal with you.

    Cheers,

    I'm going to say this is a different part to the 97 piston.

    It looks shorter and, going off my notebook measurements (which may or may not be entirely accurate :rolleyes: ) I make it shorter, as follows:

    Piston body from where the piston seal begins to where the rod comes out is 113mm

    Overall length including rod, measured from where the piston seal begins is 147mm

    My notebook is telling me that the last 97 is mucked about with was 140.5 long (piston body) and 169.6 including the rod.

    Chambers have them listed as a different part number too.

    It's possible I've had a senior moment and written down incorrect measurements from the 97, but if my old measurements are good then it's not going to work :(

    Sorry, can't help with the supply of a piston but can, with reasonable certainty state that pretty much all HW springer pistons are different across the models..

    The only two exceptions I can think of are the HW99/50 and HW57 (which I believe use the same piston) along with the HW77 and HW97 (which should come as no surprise as they're very similar guns). All other models are different, IIRC ;)
