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.

    I thought the same... but surely not! HC really should be on top of this, especially as they've fixed it with the HW110! :facepalm:

    Steve was asking all the right questions but you hadn't mentioned the sub zero temperature.

    It certainly won't help accuracy if the power drops. The degree of thick grease in the hammer mechanism can vary from slight to excessive.

    Depends who deals with it. Weihrauch don't seem to learn, look at the HW99 for example.

    I know mate, I'm sorry it hasn't been sorted out yet.

    Don't forget Big Al was happy with the barrel.

    But the HW100 is a wonderful rifle... faultless, as the fans will tell me (a HW110 owner)! :p

    No ones ever said the HW100 is faultless - they have many faults, BUT they are very well engineered and are very easy to work on. The HW110 in comparison is a sh#t on a stick ;)

    I love when technical threads descend into silliness

    Now, a serious question, If I fill my barrel with s**t followed by a pellet and shoot at a target it sort of splatters! Why is that and what can I do about it?

    i cant see much wrong in the original shotstring. certainly nothing what would explain pellets going all over the shop

    power seems low a bit, if you block your silencer and fire the gun with no pellet in, how much air escapes from around the probe are versus the blocked silencer? in a good tight hw100 the pressure builds up and stays pretty much in the silencer for quite long

    will it group better without silencer
    ...is parallax set righton the scope? not floating reticule?

    Nothing wrong with the shot-string, however at 9ft lb the power is very low. As @Blackmax quite rightly said, a massive drop in temp will easily cause this. E.g the gun was probably tested at HC at approx 16 - 20 degree Celcius (indoors) and probably got a reading of 11 - 11.5ft lbs. Now test the gun at sub zero temps and the power WILL drop a huge amount (done it myself). I test guns outside in the summer, but have to move them indoors in the winter for this very reason.

    The power drop alone can cause a big change in accuracy - depending on pellet used.

    The first step would be to test the gun over a chrono indoors, then move forward... a matter of logical elimination.

    Pellets are always lubed you say so have you tried it with non lubed pellets.Lubed pellets may be releasing prematurely so not benefiting from full air pressure before release and/or gripping the rifling properly as well. Lube pellets may suit some guns an barrels deprnding on what type of gun it is but not all. Just a thought as i never lube my pellets just make sure the clean and not damaged.

    Hi Guys sorry its took me a couple of days to reply to this thread.Apologies are in order to everyone who has took there time to respond to my problems with the rifle. I have had a lot of trouble with the rifle as explained, when I got the second barrel it still wasn't perfect so I sent it to Big Al to sort out. It got returned to me last Friday. Saturday was the big test I couldn't wait I was like a kid at Christmas unfortunately Friday night was the coldest night of the year so far -6 it was -2 when I came to test the rifle anyway it was terrible, absolutely shocking. Andy (Blackmax) said it was the grease straight away on Saturday what I couldn't understand is my Hw100 177 was working fine and the Chrono readings were good to The greese never occurred to me especially since I cleaned grease out of the new rifle when I got it last October unfortunately there must be some left in it . Over the last couple of days the weather has warmed to 7degrees and lo and behold at 40yards it's now very good,I only get about 1hours day light to test after work it goes dark at 4 in the Highlands,not done the Chrono test yet but it will be interesting.So sorry again everyone but very big thanks as well to you all for your help and advice it is appreciated. All the best Bob.
