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.

    Firstly Hi to you all whilst I'm new to the forum I'm not new to the world <71 years young> but still very much enjoy shooting and on that very subject I have a question for you, I purchased online over the weekend a very well kept Weihrauch HW77 <not the carbine version>, can anyone please tell me in their opinion what they consider to be the most consistent pellets for this rifle, thanks in advance.

    Hi the one I had in 177 was not too pellet fussy but it got on OK with AA fields as most guns do. A good start anyway.
    Lovely gun and welcome to the forum.
    I am a lot older than you and still shooting. I don't hit much but I shoot.:D

    I have an early HW 77 in .22 flavour and find HN Field Target Trophy pellets work well in mine. :up:

    PS Welcome to the forum too.

    Thanks to you all for getting back to me also the welcome and very sound advice, I've now got to either join a club or the countless thousands looking for land to shoot over. Good hunting to you all.

    Hi, welcome !
    We are the same age and like you I have recently taken up air rifle to support my grandson. Also being retired I have to watch the cost of centre fire and shotgun ammo to feed my collection.
    My HW77 works brilliantly with RWS Superdomes, very happy with it. Shoot all day for nothing :)
    This forum is very friendly and endless good information.
    Happy shooting.

    Peter Norris.

    I have a HW77 of 1984 vintage and I find it very fussy on the pellets used. JSB Exact would be my recommendation.
    Have fun.

    I haven't tried many different pellets but the RWS Superdomes seem to work well. I use H&N Baracuda Hunter Extremes for rats and rabbits (based purely on the advertising!) and they appear to have the same trajectory.

    Be careful - Most River Authories Do no allow Air Guns on the River Banks

    Counts as Armed Tresspass - Very Bad -

    Use to be a River Bailiff and even Baliffs was not allowed to Shot / Control vermin -

    Due to Health and Safety issues and Not wanting river banks / river full of bleeding Rats

    When I used to shoot my .22 HW77 in the 80's/90's it used to love Superdome's but I would always test out some other pellets too
