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.

  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.

    yet more questions from me.....

    i might be lucky enough to be getting a HW95 for xmas, and i cant wait, only one problem though....

    i see you can get a 95 with a SILENCER or MUZZLE BREAK.

    now obv the silencer would make the gun quieter, but will it loose power?
    also, what does muzzle break mean!!??
    lastly, is there any real difference between the two guns?

    thanks!!!

    ian please go for the one with the silencer in carbine format
    the silencer will NOT make the gun loose any power
    .
    the muzzle break will be of no use to you , you will eventually
    want to remove it to fit a silencer which is quite hard .
    plus it would have to be a push on silencer.
    the 95 that comes with the hw silencer fitted already has the barrel screw cut allowing you to fit any silencer with a half inch thread.
    the muzzle break is just a weight at the end of the barrel that helps balance out the gun and some say is supposed to prevent muzzle flip,
    please try to take this advice and let us know what you think of your 95 when you get it.
    and dont forget to get .177 you"ll be glad you did:D

    dont get fooled by the wonders od .177 it depends on what you are shooting at if its targets then .177 is great but if you're after rats for example then .22 is what you need

    You could even push the boundaries of reality and get a .20, best of both.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, I think the 95 can come in .20, I remember reading it somewhere. Sometimes I spend hours just reading about airguns on the internet, I soak it all up like a sponge. I know a surprising amount considering I only got into airguns in February, don't you think?

    I've got one of those!

    Mine is in .177, originally with the barrel weight. I had the weight removed, the barrel shortened and a weihraucht moderator fitted (allen key not screw on). I had it tuned to get rid of the twang also (£30). It is now all you could want of an airgun. I shoot rats and pigeons with it regularly, and it is the equal of my Feinwerkbau 127 .22.
    Let's face it, if you are a rat, and get shot by a 12flb rifle at anything less than 30yd, you are stuffed. I am sure someone will now say they shot a rat, crow, pigeon etc.at 15 yds and saw it next day down the local mcdonalds, with all its mates, in their baseball caps and shell suits, comparing .177 scars.
    I shoot rats with .177 and .22 and don't see any difference. Rats are not armour plated, just small rodents; no harder to kill than squirrels.

    Unless the policy has changed, the HW importers , Hull Cartridge will special order a .20 HW95. I just special ordered an HW 30s, (.177)which has the Record trigger, they dont list it , only the HW30 mk2, but they had 1 in stock. Less ammo choice in .20 but getting better. H&N FTT pellets are good in sub 12fp rifles, give a pretty flat trajectory as well. Worth thinking about, but as stated , the .177 is pretty versatile and if you fancy a dabble in HFT you've got the best calibre.
