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.

    Hey you guys, as some of you know I pick up my HW97K tomorrow and I plan on stripping and deburring it that same day. I did have some Wurth motorbike degreaser that was for use on motorbike chains but don’t think I have enough left and it’s £10 a tin!!!! Adding to this, I’ve now sold my bike and don’t need to replace it. Is there a particular brand that you lot have used that works well? I’m not a tight arse but I’d like to get more for my hard earned! Also, what moly grease do you use.... I reckon I can buy this stuff on Amazon Prime (loads available there) so I can get it delivered tomorrow if I order today....

    Thanks in advance! John.

    Any brake or carb cleaner would do.
    Make sure all residue is off before assembly

    As for moly, I use the Bisley stuff but any molybdenum disuphide grease should be ok. Make sure no moly gets forward of piston seal

    Just an afterthought on the moly. If you buy a TBT kit, Nick supplies enough moly with the kit to do 2 rifles.
    I say I use Bisley. I bought that pot about 5 years ago and just keep topping it up with the excess from TBT kits :D

    Rob, just done exactly that! Ordered the TBT drop in kit (spring guide, top hat and seals) so don’t need the moly now. Thanks buddy....btw, what degreaser have you used? Some lads from this forum tell me that the HW97K comes caked in grease, looks like an axle off a truck!

    They come full of grease.
    I use brake or carb cleaner.
    I always immerse trigger units (the whole unit) in either acetone or thinners for the same reason.
    The lube on the trigegr units eventually hardens and impairs operation of the trigegr and safety. Re lube the trigger sparingly with some light machine oil, fishing reel oil, sewing machine oil or similar

    Any solvent ie brake/carb cleaner etc will do. I prefer aerosol types but it’s always handy to have a litre tin so you can soak parts if required

    Moly wise I use @Tinbum bumslide on the piston - the highest moly content grease I’ve found! and a standard moly on the spring which is included in the kit as stated. I also use Abbey SM50 on finer parts with minimal tolerance such as barrel shims and trigger parts.

    the Napier power grease must be pretty good if it’s the actual grease included in the official air arms tx200 service kits.

    I use cellulose thinner as a de greaser. But only buy it from a paint supplier. in small quantities it's expensive so buy a gallon. Cheap as chips. It wont harm blueing!
