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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Up until the point when i bought my Pro Sport the best springer i ever shot was the Weihrauch HW 97/77. But i'd heard so many good reviews on this gun, i thought i'd give it a go. I bought mine second hand with a nice custom stock on it for a very reasonable price. It has to be said that this rifle is the best looking springer on the market and i'd go as far as saying that it could well be the best looking rifle period. Everything about it is good, the build quality is second to none, i've heard that AA's blueing isn't up to much, but i can honestly say that i haven't found it to be the case with mine. It has a nice deep even blue finish. Upon firing it for the first time, i was surprised that the firing cycle was a bit on the lazy side compared to my 97. This gave me cause for concern at first, thinking that it might be a bit hold sensitive and convinced myself that i'd made a boo boo buying this gun. But that all changed when i took it to the club the following Sunday. It is so easy to hit knock down targets out to the max of 55 yards, i can even follow the flight of the pellet through the scope on its way to the target,for a spring gun that is pretty impressive. What surpises me also is although the lock time is slower than my 97 it doesn't seem to effect its down range accuracy at all, i actually find it easier to hit targets then with my 97. I would go as far as saying that i find it as easy to hit targets as if i was using an Air Arms TX SR, the recoil is a gentle nudge in the shoulder and it don't suffer too much from hold sensitvity. The only downside i would give this gun is the underlever, it can become rather sloppy but all you need to do is put some lock tite on the the thread and it will stay in place. I would definitely recommend this to other people.

    And me.
    Nice review and alway's fancied one,I agree probably the best looking rifle on the market but take a look at ISP,There same typ of build.

    I like the way the barrel go's into the action and how short and stubby the barrel is.

    Shot a friend's and me think's your's has been tuned mate as his kicked.
    Shot a sr to and his was no where near.

    In regard's to this
    i've heard that AA's blueing isn't up to much, but i can honestly say that i haven't found it to be the case with mine.

    blacking is nice on aa gun's but need's looking after as it tend's to rust very easily as I found on a s410 I had.

    Any piccy's of it in the custom stock?
