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.

    Hi guys might be time for a pcp so just your opions on this little this little question. We all know weirauch make great guns and their barrels are top . Brocock use these barrels on their rifles so this must mean that one of the most important components in a gun is a barrel, therefore making this a pretty good gun right? . Now that brocock have increased the shot count and a pressure gauge to the elite is it worth saving the £300 that would go on a hw100, as i would be getting half a weirauch in the brocock ( the barrel) . ????????

    it's two completely different tools,

    brococks are light and have small shot count to compare with HW100

    HW100 is a great but tvice heavier

    so your choice have to start with your propuses to use PCP, before to speak about barrels

    If cost is your issue and the elite feels good in the shoulder then go for the elite. Or perhaps look for a second hand Hw. There have been some excellent examples for sale by the good folk of the forum lately.

    The HW100 is a very different rifle to the Brocock, as mentioned. It is fairly heavy for a PCP and certainly compared to the Brocock (though I have the carbine version and I don't find it too weighty). It's also a lever action which gives a low cocking effort and is nice and quiet, plus I prefer the trigger on the HW100 to that on the Concept series. The HW100 is regulated too, so they tend to have a good shot count and give consistent velocity, ultimately they are well known as one of the most accurate airguns out there, and my experience of them so far only goes to back this up. They are reliable and well-built too, and I've not yet had any fuss or drama with my example.

    Don't get me wrong, the Brocock is an excellent little rifle, and if I was in the market for a lighter rifle (I'm not at present as I recently acquired an Ultra and a Huntsman Classic second-hand) this would definitely be on my list. They're accurate little rifles with a no-nonsense sense of simplicity to them. They feel rugged and well-built despite being light, with a nice positive action to them. I think for the money, the Brocock series are some of the best rifles out there. Ultimately, it's down to your personal preference; if your budget limits you to the Brocock then get that, otherwise I'd say try and handle both rifles and see which you prefer the feel of as they're both capable of most jobs you'd want an air rifle for, certainly hunting, plinking or HFT.

    Both very good but very different, neither will disappoint but, if you go with an HW100, i would suggest the "K" carbine version ;)

    The concept elite , with the bigger bottle and pressure gauge. How would the shot count compare on the the two now brocock have increased the size of theirs.
