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.

  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.

    Hi,
    I bought off my mate a Weihrauch HW77k .177. It has been repainted (very badly) some quite deep dents and scratches. It is quite old because it says its made in W. Germany. So that would be when the berlin wall was still up (I think), So it has to be made in 1989 or before.
    So It would be nice to find out what year is was made. It is a Uk model as it has Hull Cartridge stamped on the barrel. My serial number is 1289508. Maybe someone will know?
    I emailed Hull cartridge a few days ago to ask if they could help, They should know because they import them to the Uk. But Ive not had a reply yet.
    I will be grateful for any info :D
    Thanks for reading my first post, Scott.:cool:

    HW77 Info / Help...

    Hello there

    I had the same problem, i emailed Hans-H. Weihrauch here: info@weihrauch-sport.de

    I recieved a reply about my HW77 quite quickly, my serial No is: 1030427

    The relpy from Hans was:

    'thank you very much for your e-mail of 04.04.2008.

    Your air rifle is one out of the first years. We do not count the HW 77 according to MK1, MK2 versions.

    With separate mail we will send you the manual for our mod. HW 77.

    We wish you good shooting success.

    Best regards

    Hans-H. Weihrauch'

    What a very decent chap Hans is. I now know that my HW77 was made in approx 1970 !! I was born in 1970 !! How wierd is that !!

    Hope this helps.

    Just came across this old post that the op clearly got a wrong answer from HW as I think the 77k was not produced until I think 1984

    When I saw 'dating a HW 77' I thought someone was taking the big step of asking it out for dinner... I wouldnt be asshamed to be seen out with my girl... She's old enough. :rolleyes:

    The gun in the op is the same age as mine! 1289508 ...1993.

    My .22 77k is 1288450... Sisters!

    ..... in post #2, 1030427 is a 1986-1987 gun. Think there may of been a typo in the email?

    Hi, jamjon. I too have an old Weihrauch HW77 in .22 calibre. I know I'm asking you a question a decade after your post. But, it was something you wrote that made me contact you. How do I go about contacting Weihrauch directly? If they're prompt in replying then I'd like to contact them over the age of my HW77 too. Also, some (hopefully) slight problem has temporarily put my rifle out of action & I'm very curious as to what you think it could be? That's if you're still on this forum. I've already started a thread, titled simply HW77. If you read it you'll find out my dilemma. Or you could just ask me as I don't want to make this post too long. Many thanks in advance.
