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.

    Thank you.

  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.

  6. 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.

Fwb 150 Cocking Lever Not Returning Solved!

    This is a recent purchase that arrived in two sections, mechanics and stock
    Having reassembled a FWB 150, only stock to barrel after a general inspection and a fraction of grease. I found that the cocking lever would jamb open and not return on a few occasions, each time this happened I slackened off the stock retaining screws and it released the lever and the gun would sledge on firing and cocking.
    Frustrated at the repeated occurance of this problem I got the spirit levels out and the laser level.After setting the stock up as level, I placed the guts of the rifle into the stock and whilst keeping an eye out on the levels and laser placed the two stock bolts and tightened them up evenly.When the bolts JUST nipped up the laser and spirit level on the rifle showed a slight decline from rear to front, checking under the rifle barrel and stock showed there WAS a slight declination in the gap between the barrel and stock.
    I placed a shim of about 1mm between the front stock screw and the rifle to lift it up. Okay , not perfect and I will adjust a little more, but on nipping everything up , the gun cocks, fires and sledges on cocking and firing very smoothly now.
    I am NOT suggesting this is a resolve for every 150 or 300 that snags on cocking , but on this 1964 150 it has been a result.
    I guess I can't claim that all the parts from this are original, not even the stock, but it is a result for me.

    Well done @jimbobjones :thumb:
    It's nice when you can spot 'the problem' and effect a solution - good on you!

    There are some really really good engineers and 'fettlers' in this community and reading about their work and seeing the results is so encouraging to we lesser mortals. Even I have taken the stocks off all my rifles (only to have a look at what's underneath) apart from my HW95 that MechaNick worked on just before I bought it - I wouldn't dare touch a single screw on that as it is really nice as it is.

    It was born out of frustration, quite a few owners talk about the cocking lever jambing up,looking at the internals i could see nothing that should force it to jamb consistently( every few shots) noticed the sledging was very poor and so I started the measuring out process, I don't have the gunsmithing skills of the " Fettlers" and engineers and maybe this repair is a bodge,but the sledging now looks level when fired and after 30 test shots last night did not jamb up once, shrinkage , wear and tear who knows?
