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.

    '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.'

  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.

    last night i spent a good while trawling google on basic hw100 maintenence/stripping and improvements,i had to read through quite a lot of info and struggled to find many pictures so today ive stripped the rifle and took a few pictures to help any other new hw100 owners out,i know a lot on here can do this blindfolded but hopefully it may help a few out
    so to remove the stock its the 2 bolts here
    1535752_10201489532024254_96541888_n.jpg
    the first problem i wanted to solve on mine was the barrel rotating so first was remove the air cylinder and then remove the stock to reveal a small alan bolt,my bolt was loose slightly so i nipped it up with some medium strength loctite, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN as this may cause leaks and problems with the magazine rotating,i just nipped it up useing the short end of the alan key as in the picture,as you shoulder the rifle looking down the barrel the seriel no.s on the barrel should be at 9 oclock
    1551770_10201489532064255_1456431427_n.jpg
    next i stripped the trigger unit off with the 2 bolts here,1 where my finger points and the other where the alan key is
    1535752_10201489531984253_1670747350_n.jpg
    this reveals all the cocking mech,i then removed the end cap
    1497587_10201489533664295_1279981727_n.jpg 1522213_10201489533544292_577426733_n.jpg
    in here is a fair bit of thick grease added at the factory,from reading up and useing the rifle in different temperatures this grease can thicken when cold and between a warm and cold day there can be as much as 1 ft/ib difference in the rifle (from what ive read) i have noticed though that on a really cold day the rifle does seem stiffer to load,so useing cotton buds and wd40 i cleaned all the grease out,dried it all and applied some gun oil (any light oil 3 in 1 ect will do) i could feel the difference straight away it all operates a lot more smoothly
    1513311_10201489533624294_381031297_n.jpg 1526272_10201489533504291_1886990740_n.jpg
    make sure theres no excess oil thats going to run everywhere then refit back together,before fitting the stock back on though nows the time to set the trigger up,the small alan key bolt in the pic below (only accesable with the stock removed) is to adjust the weight of the trigger pull
    996753_10201489532144257_1212943437_n.jpg
    the alan key bolt below is to adjust the first stage length
    943033_10201489532104256_1778604468_n.jpg
    i found the best way is to adjust the weight so its heavy,then set your first stage length,then lighten off the pull weight to where your happy,just to add you will need your cylinder on with air in to keep fireing it,or with the trigger removed as earlier you can manually "cock" the trigger mech with your finger.
    now replace your stock and cylinder and fill with air,ive left my rifle to stand now and will check later to make sure theres no air leaks from overtightening the barrel
    like i said i know this is probably second nature stuff for most on here but hopefully all the info on one thread will help someone out and maybe save them a few quid in the process:up:

    Good thread buddy:up:

    If you are like me, you like to get into the a******e of things. I was scared to remove the silencer when I first got my ultra, but with a bit of reading on here I can strip and maintain it myself.

    And a few wee tweeks of my own:D

    thanks,this day and age you have to give things ago yourself otherwise your hobbies can end up costing you a fortune,ill be honest i wasnt fancying it but its all pretty simple and straight forward once you get stuck in,landrovers were the same when i first started owning them i didnt have a clue,a mate said to me just set about it with the spanners and take note how things come apart,ive since to date completly rebuilt 3 including a part engine rebuild
    at the end of the day cars,air rifles ect its all just basically nuts and bolts and google/forums have all the info you'll ever need :up:

    just a quick update on this ive checked the rifle and its lost no pressure at all and the barrels solid so when tightening the barrell screw just tighten using the short end of the alan key for leverage and that is plenty,as said before if you overtighten this will cause leaks
