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.

    Did some chrono testing today since I had the rifle out, 6 months ago it was sitting at 11.43ftlb, over a string of 30 shots today these were the results.

    Using JSB Exacts 8.44gr .177 - rifle charged to 200bar at start.

    1. 763 - 10.87
    2. 763 - 10.87
    3. 762 - 10.83
    4. 763 - 10.87
    5. 768 - 11.00
    6. 768 - 11.00
    7. 763 - 10.87
    8. 768 - 11.00
    9. 760 - 10.79
    10. 768 - 11.00
    11. 768 - 11.00
    12. 768 - 11.00
    13. 763 - 10.87
    14. 768 - 10.95
    15. 763 - 10.89
    16. 759 - 10.79
    17. 764 - 10.90
    18. 768 - 11.00
    19. 767 - 10.98
    20. 769 - 11.02
    21. 763 - 10.89
    22. 762 - 10.83
    23. 761 - 10.82
    24. 758 - 10.73
    25. 763 - 10.89
    26. 761 - 10.82
    27. 763 - 10.89
    28. 761 - 10.82
    29. 762 - 10.83
    30. 763 - 10.87

    11fps Spread over 30 shots
    Average ft/lb - 10.89ft/lb
    Loss of 0.54ft/lb in 6 months

    I was a little disappointed to see so many shots at sub 11ftlb, does this mean it's due a service or has the rifle just settled in to this power. Also is the shot consistency pretty typical of a HW100?

    Appreciate your thoughts.

    Personally, I would be pretty happy with that. Decent shot consistency and power with enough margin to accommodate a heavier pellet choice if you wanted.

    personally, i'd be well chuffed with that string - above average to good consistancy, and at an average of 10.9ftlb with a medium weight pellet means that it will probably be pushing 11.5ftlb with a heavy pellet. some rifles drop a bit in power as they settle down, others rise and have to be adjusted back down.
    just to add, many regged rifles have a spread of up to 20fps over the string, so yours is well within the spec

    It's fine, very consistent, the factory grease around the hammer can thicken up and slow the cycle down, if you're worried clean it out and lube with a light or synthetic oil but be careful as this can also push the power up.

    No if you gents think that's good then I'll stick with it as it is, I know when hunting it's all about shot placement but I had originally hoped for mid 11's, but happier now.

    with hunting, pellet placement rules - your quarry will drop if you place the pellet right, regardless of pellet weight. but with that rifle, and for hunting, i'm certain that h&n barracuda match or weihrauch magnums will be a good and accurate pellet that hits like a brick. fyi, the weihrauch magnums are made by h&n (as are bisley magnums).
    i would also think that the weihrauch pcp's are tested/set up with weihrauch magnums.
    we have both, so let me know if you want a sample, but i'm confident in my recommendation

    I would agree with the grease on the hammer, should be an all round improvement if you clean it up.

    Cleaning the grease out of the hammer spring etc on mine made a world of difference on mine, really smoothed it up and got the shots more consistent again, I had a 7fps variance in the end :)

    To be honest, I think the grease thing is an old problem. Bought mine about 8 months ago and there was very little grease in it. Have seen other peeps saying similar things about newer rifles having less grease in them. That date on that vid Dave is 2010
