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.

HW100 fill adapter problem

    Today whilst filling my brand new HW100 I struggled to insert the adapter. I tried it from both sides and it was that stiff I was close to knocking it in with something. I put some silicon oil around the rings but it didn't help much. Are the factory adapters known to be a tight fit and are the brass aftermarket ones any better? Shooting the rifle is a delight and the accuracy excellent with the magazines which I didn't expect.

    I had the same problem with the steel adapter that came with my gun. I find the brass best fightings one easier.

    Mine is not tight at all, it's possible that the O rings have swollen for some reason which could cause the problem, I would mention it to the shop you bought it from though. Try taking the O rings out and cleaning/drying them and the adapter and leave them out for a day or so and then retry with a light coat of an O ring lubricant.

    Not had a prob with my steel one
    Might be an idea to change it mate as you don't want to damage the filling port
    So you're getting on wit the rifle better than the D/S ?

    I've just filled my brand new HW100KT for the first time today using a bottle and it wasn't a tight fit at all in fact it was very simple.

    Early days but I can't fault it on a shooting basis. The thread for the silencer is quite long and I would like to find an end cap for when the silencer is removed but can't find one 24mm long. Magazine operation is flawless.

    is there a burr on the adaptor or cylinder port ? if not, and it's tight before contact with the o ring, then it needs to be taken back mate. when filling, the o rings expand under pressure to create the seal, but once that pressure is bled, the o rings contract to their normal size. take both the rifle and fill adaptor back - it's possible that the cylinder fill port is undersize, but more likely to be the fill adaptor that is oversize.

    Cocking and loading is by far the best system out there at the minute mate
    And accuracy is on a par with the top end D/S models too

    I seem to be having the opposite problem, my fill adapter seems to be a loose fit, just bought a bottle and tried out the fill adapter for the first time and air is escaping every time I try to fill it. I know it's not the gun because iv been getting it filled at the shop no problem. Going to take it back to the shop to see if they can replace it, Iv only had the gun for a week.

    they look v well made, but is more of a muzzlebreak, as opposed to an airstripper. to a certain degree, they will dissipate air, but not as much as a dedicated airstripper.
    the black ones will really suit the barrels looks

    Mine is also tight you have to get it exactly in line for the probe to go in, whatever you do, do not try brute force, feel for the fit. If you force it you can gouge the entrance and create a burr which will tear your orings. take the probe back and try another at the dealers.:)

    As mentioned above be sure to put it in exact line for the probe. I found it easier to use quick coupler, this will make it easier as you can fit the filing adaptor first then attaché filling hose to it.
