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.

Air leak at the breach?

    Hi all,

    I have a weihrauch hw100 and I noticed it wasn't holding pressure above 90 bar overnight. It seems I have an air leak and it sounds like it is coming from the breach where the magazine is loaded. What should I do about this? Is this something I could deal with myself or do I need to get it to a gunsmith to fix? I am pretty new to all this so not sure what kind of prices I would expect to pay to get it sorted properly?

    Is this something that can just happen or is it likely I could have caused it somehow? I never fill above 190 bar and am careful when loading the magazine etc. I haven't had the rifle long but it was fine when I got it. Just got myself a permission on a golf course and now the darn thing decides to spring a leak :(

    Cheers
    Rik

    Local gunsmith was going to charge me a fortune (£85) just to look at it !!!
    I am fairly lucky in I know a few lads who are very well up on pcp air rifles so I got it sorted myself with a bit of help from them. It'll probably be just an O ring that's perished or been nicked. Maybe on the probe ?

    One of the members (Cloverleaf) is going to post a thread on the HW100 any time now which I am sure willhold your hand through any tricky bits so that you can sort it yourself. It's likely to be an o ring that needs replacing so if you can wait a little while it's likely to save you money.

    Thanks for the help guys. I will keep an eye out for that thread as I dont mind having a go myself. Where is the best place to get the part(s) that I may need?

    I'm afraid that will be more of a look at the ins and outs of setting the gun up properly; rather than fault finding / rectification..

    If the leak is from the breech area my money would be on either the valve cover O-ring or exhaust valve - while perhaps not exhaustive, this link should shed a bit of light on the subject ;)
