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 sent my HW100KT off to @Blackmax a few weeks back as felt that it could do with a bit of work on to make it all that it could be.

    It all turned into a bit of a saga in the end (zero fault to Andy), with numerous leaks, him chasing them around the gun, and an issue with Weihrauch using a part in the OE build that ‘wasn’t great’.

    Well after some hard work by Andy my rifle arrived back yesterday.

    I rebuilt it and below are the results of Andy’s hard work. The trigger is great now also.

    I really can not recommend him enough should you need your rifle working on by a consummate professional (and a good all round geezer) :thumb::)

    30 yards, bottom group JSB RS, top group Falcons.

    Thanks Mark.

    Funnily enough that’s the third bent valve block I’ve had on a factory gun in a couple of months. This normally happens when the valve block is unnecessarily tightened up too much. Along with using too bigger sealing O ring which gets crushed during assembly. The leak caused by this is very slow, almost unnoticeable but it has to be sorted out.

    I’ve spoken to Chris at Hull Cartridge at length about this and he’s going to relay my thoughts back to the Weihrauch factory.

    I don’t need to say anything else, I think @mikeyhall1 has covered it succinctly.

    It’s most likely to be the two bolts on the valve block, you can see where it’s bent against the O ring if you put a flat end against it and it’s where the 12 x 1.2 factory fitted O ring sits.

    With regards to Weihrauch, no I don’t expect them to listen yet but Rome wasn’t built in a day.

    Another one well spotted Andy :up:

    I had one bent in the other direction from barrel over tightening. Most likely after all the old talk about barrels spinning when mods have been over tightened and grease on the barrel end.

    for the OP: no youtube video maker tells you to install the barrel last? The order of re-assembly is important.

    my guess is whoever was messing with it last, caused this. i doubt they come like that from the factory

    usually this happens when the valve block is not in the gun and you seat the barrel - too deep.


    :gogle:

    if it is a new gun... HC should take care of it, i guess they supplied the repair parts for free of charge then. the valve block is a whopping what 30 quid or so
    lol

    are your magazines or the action marked now? can you see metal?
