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.

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.

    Does anyone know of anywhere to get custom seals for HW springers? BAR are out of the V-mach ones that would fit (and I'm not a huge fan) and as much as I like the Aussie ones available on Ebay I'd prefer to buy from the UK if possible.

    Any tips gratefully received, as always.

    Cheers,

    JR

    I don't know - but if they were I'd be perfectly happy to use them. I only need one as 'Er Indoors has dry-fired my 95, and it got me thinking that if I needed to replace one then I may as well find some good ones and replace al of them.

    I have 1 of the new Hw seals and the sizing of it is very odd, 24mm at the base and barely 26mm at the face,

    Ive not bothered trying it as yet.

    The old Hw are built to last, probably 100,000 shots and then still some.

    Its hard to know which custon seal works best, so I stick with what I know lasts and thats the old type Hw seals.

    The guy who rebuilt both my hw's swears by the old style hw seal - he's done some testing, between them v mach and the newer seals and the old one are less affected by temperature than the others. He does size them which takes some time and definatly do the job.

    Have been offered a Vortek seal by Mikemjm at a very reasonable price, so I'll go with that one. I have several HW springers so if this one performs well I'll replace the one in my old HW80 to begin with and then maybe the 97.

    Which model Hw are you fitting this seal to JK ?

    I'd be interested to read your findings.

    I've read differing reports from various tuners on the other other forum.

    You could ask on the other forum as im sure a few of the knowledgeable tuners mod pistons of other makes of guns to use the new HW seals.
    Unless theres a real problem after the dry fire i wouldnt worry to much, i dry fired my 2nd hand TX200 a couple of times when i first started shooting and its still on the same spring and original AA seal 20 tins of pellets after the dry fires.

    Bought one of the new seals for my 97, it dropped into the comp tube without touching the sides so sent it back (snug fit in a 25mm tube though ?????). They said it's the same as all the seals they had in stock and must be for 26mm piston as Weihrauch no longer make a 25mm seal. Sent it back to me saying to fit it to the piston and try it as it'll stretch a little on the piston. Tried it and piston with new seal dropped into comp tube with my finger blocking the transfer port. Sent it back and put an old Vortek seal on it, much better.
