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.

    I have a Weihrauch HW57, i have heard they put out over 11 ftlb, but was wondering with frequent use over time, would it creep over 12 ftlb?

    Once it's had 1,000 pellets it's probably going to stay roughly the same.

    I'm not to sure to be honest, it seems to be pretty powerful. i've had it about 3-4 weeks and probly put around 350-400 pellets through it. Any chrono's you would recommend (cheaper the better) ?

    I wouldn't worry to much about what is said in reviews or by manufacturers etc; in the eyes of the law ignorance is no excuse, which means that if (and to be fair, it's a big if) you have a rifle that for whatever reason develops over 12fpe, you're in potentially hot water. I have a ProChrono Digital chronoscope which is excellent. If you're not too far away you can come here and use mine and we can make sure that you're legal.

    Most Uk Distributed Air Guns are Set around 10.FP with a Standard Air Gun Pellet

    Being aware other pellets will have higher reading / Depending on Design & Weight

    But in General PCP's and Springers do loosen up and Shoot higher speeds with Use

    So Yes do need to be Check regularly over a Chrono

    Becareful who checks - As if done by a RFD and they are Duty Bound to withold a Gun that Exceeds the Sub 12.FP Rule
    Legal Requirement and can cost them a Large Fine and loss of their RFD........

    If checked by a Club - in General they will ask you to get is reduced before being allowed to use it on Club Ranges

    Most Clubs have Chronos - On Request - some Check New Shootes before being allowed on their Ranges
