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.

    Very different rifles and both very nice to use. Really depends what i was going to use it for. HW for targets and hft, Brocock for hunting as its nice light and multishot - which helps to avoid cold finger clumsiness in the field. Just my personal opinion and you didnt mention calibre which makes a bit of difference :)

    Two completely different guns, are you looking for a springer or a PCP?

    Thanks for the input guys . I would be looking at.177 calibre simply to save carrying two lots of ammo, already have a springer and pcp looking to add to collection but have never handled either.

    What springer and pcp do you already have as this would make a difference for me. If you have a good springer and a cheaper pcp then go Brocock but if its a good pcp and cheaper springer you wont go wrong with an hW97

    If it was me (you really must handle them and make up your own mind) and i have shot both, i would buy the 97 but then my pcp is an hw100 and my springer is an hw95 so the 97 fits nicely into to my collection. Perhaps one way to look at it is that if you were to buy the 97 then you are buying perhaps one of the three best springers available to us in the UK and will last you a lifetime. The brocock is a great rifle but might just leave you wanting an even better pcp. As i say just my opinion and probably not shared by everyone:D

    Thanks Ozzy swaying in the direction of HW as I trust the quality. further question , As I see guns as a tool therefore it`s how they shoot not look that matters, Is there any functional advantage in a wooden stock over a cheaper synthetic ?

    No other than it will look terrible once it's scratched,when you scratch a synthetic you can just rub some oil onto the scratch and it will instantly darken up to the point you can barely see it.

    wood is a very personal thing (some people wont own a gun unless it has a wooden stock) but i do quite like the stainless action in the black synth stock

    I prefer break barrels and as I own a contour, I'd go for the Brocock - but if you'd said 95/98 or lgv I'd have gone for the springer.

    I would go for the brocock.ive got a super 6 elite contour with the shrouded barrel.if you wanted a weihrauch springer I don't think you can beat the hw77k.its a fantastic gun and deadly accurate.ive had many successful hunting trips with mine.i regret selling it.im sure I will another.

    I have both and they are great rifles
    My son uses the brocock concept super 6 its in a walnut stock and has been a brilliant Rifle for him ,
    He uses it for hft and has had some great results.
    It's a very well made and accurate rifle and very light.

    I shoot an hw97kt for hft like the brocock very well Made and accurate but they shoot and feel better after A tune

    Try and shoulder both or better still try having a shot with both.
    The 97 weighs nearly double the weight of concept

    Only you can decide.

    We get many come to the Club with a Springer - Move onto a PCP than in time move onto a custom Springer as find PCP's
    Boring

    Personally I prefer a PCP's

    Not forgetting that Brococks - are based originally on a John Bowkett PCP - designed and built by Paul Bird - who worked with John Bowkett
    in past years

    If you want extended range time why not buy a pump or a 3 litre carbon cylinder?
