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.

    Just getting close to buying the 100KT in .177 but cannot pin down pellet count as I have seen it stated between 30 - 60 which doesn't help. Any of you 100KT owners confirm what the actual pellet count is please and I am assuming that because of the type of 'regulator' being used most of the pellets are close to sweet spot performance or no doubt you can tell me otherwise.
    Thanks

    Phil

    The cylinder is slightly longer than the standard one but weighs 400g less. They are £150 new from A&M, and your old one can be sold for around £80-£100 depending on condition, which means overall, you are only paying £50-£70 for the A&M after selling your cylinder :D

    Here;s what the cylinder looks like fitted...

    That looks good, is that a different mod from the standard Weihrauch mod. I THINK I am going for the new laminated adjustable stock version so is the A & M cylinder a straight fit or is there some carving out of the stock to take the new cylinder.

    Cylinder is a straight fit for the old one, no modification required. The silencer is an A&M carbon fibre Twink. I sold that and now have a Hugget silencer fitted. I used that photo as it's the most recent one i have of the rifle

    I used to get 3mags now 5/6 with the A&M cylinder, Only think you have to do is remove the o ring in the barrel band to accommodate the A&M cylinder. Also note their cylinder has no valve so will dump all air if unsrewed.

    Is it worth it getting an extra two mags and spending
    money on an A&M Cylinder ?? what I mean is 50 shots
    in a hunting session has to be plenty more than enough surely.

    If yours does 50 shots on a fill and that is enough for your hunting session then leave it as it is! The A & M cylinder is not magic but will increase shot count directly in proportion to its increased capacity. With this in mind be wary of claims that it will give a truly massive increase in shot count though. It is slightly longer and also does not have a valve built into the threaded end so a bit of extra volume there also but I doubt it even has 50% extra volume. Does anyone have an actual volume for it in cc? Have you measured how many shots you are getting as standard as some go way over 50 before the drop off anyway?

    May be better to buy another HW cylinder which could be changed in the field then you will have a high shot count ;)

    But each time you do this you risk perishing the seal.

    Fair point Meteor but think of the early 100's. They had to have the cylinder removed every time it needed filling! I think that these seals tear when dry so a bit of the correct lube on them and they would last a lot longer.

    Ok I'm just going on what I have read that every time you take the cylinder off you should replace the seal as it will surely be ruined. Having said that mine was off a fair few times when I first got it and it's seal has stayed true and is still on there now.
