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.

    I have looked hw99s rifles and noticed 2 different stocks: Is this correct or are they aftermarket.

    The top one has an "M" in the handle and the lower seems to have an "AR" in the logo. are there two types?

    Top one is the newer type shape.
    The old shape had 2 different manufacturers.
    The m one is minelli I think but don’t know what who Ar is.

    Both genuine, the bottom is what my 99 has, I believe the M represents Minelli stocks although there are others who make them for the 90.

    The top is the stock currently used on the HW50, which is the name the 99 is sold under in the rest of the world. So either that's a 50 and would be marked as such or the stock is also now being used for the 99 as well.

    I actually bought a 99 with the new stock. My first thought was as everybody said on here at the time awful and I swapped it for an as new old one old type. I have since bought a 30 for a present for a relative and on that it looked better. Now my eye is getting used to it I wish I had hung on to the new 99 stock longer. upload_2021-1-12_6-34-52.jpeg upload_2021-1-12_6-34-52.jpeg

    I like the new shape. Best value for money rifle with that trigger. I do shoot better with my 97.

    Actually, I'm not sure which is the new stock, I assumed mine was but....

    Got to say I'm not a total fan of mine and may well get another to reshape sometime.

    By the way does anyone know when the 99 was introduced or can point me to a potted history?

    Can’t say the new stocks have grown on me... I thought they might given time but sadly not.

    They all end up in a CS anyway - for me :)

    The smaller/thinner lower image with "m"is the one on the website for the hw50.

    My 99s has the new style stock. It took me a bit by surprise when I bought it as I didn't know they'd been changed. Not sure how true but my rfd said all Weihrauch's were coming over with the new stock now. Wasn't keen on how it looked tbh but it has grown on me. Still might pick up one of the old style for comparison if one comes up though seeing as I never had a go with the old style.

    I'm with Mickeyhall on this one...I thought it might have grown on me, but I still think it's as ugly as the first time I saw it.
    The worst aspect of it you can hardly see - they've done away with the thumb rest :down:.
    According to Hull Cartridge, Minelli couldn't keep up with demand hence HW finding a second supplier - but they don't know who it is either...

    Mine has the Minelli stock and I am reasonably happy with it. I haven't had the opportunity to check out the new stock but would be interested to learn of any other stocks that may fit the HW99s; synthetic tactical perhaps!
