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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Well i got the free hw80 i was promised a few weeks ago today, looked WP_000133.jpg WP_000130.jpg promising,
    but on closer inspection its had a hard life, the stock is cracked and has been repaired.
    My original plan was use the karbine barrel on my 80 but thought if its ok i,d perhaps tinker with it and use it, now i,m not to sure, the blueing is all worn off, trigger guard has a screw missing (nowt i no ) and the screws holdind the front of the stock to the action seen too long and i think one is in at an angle.

    I have been watching a few 80 parts on e bay and they seem to fetch decent money but it would be a shame to break it, what you lot think ?:confused:

    I second the above! A bit of TLC and that could look beautiful. Fantastic for a freebie.

    It wont cock, the cocking lever isnt fixed to the(cocking shoe?) piston (or wherever it lives)so a strip down is on the cards whatever i do.
    Do you think the stock can be saved, the pics dont show it verry well but it looks like the stock has been brocken in two at sometime, so id imagine the whit plug on the bottom is filler hiding a screw or a dowell, i no 80,s have a bit of recoil, will this affect how it shoots ?

    Good! The 80's a breeze to work on - there's a guy on Youtube who has assembly / disassembly vids that are ace (I'm not on my computer at home, so can't give links, but he's German, so the voice alone gives it away).

    That stock will come good with no problems at all - just get plenty of good wood glue on it and cramp it up tight. If the break's really dramatic you could drill it and put a dowel in the hole to peg it.

    Good luck, and keep us posted.

    How about 10p ? took the stock of and it seems to be ok, think a bit of tlc will sort it out, the cocking lever isnt fixed to the cocking shoe, i think its got a bit missing( only £8 on ebay) so i think a bit fixing will be in order.
    So, do i just get it back to working order and use it for a rough hunting gun and tune and lavish time and money on my old 80 OR keep my 80 original and tune and tinker with this one, think i.ll mull it over with a friend of mine, mr old english !

    looks ok to me mate, just check that the barrel isnt like a bananna ??? main reason for a broken stock on a springer is if it went off whilst cocking it ???? a mate broke his stock on his HW90 it flew across the room, broke the stock and the barrel resembled a Bananna ???? still worth fixing her up though and a gunsmith charged £30 to straighten it out.
