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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    Hello All!

    I decided to fork over a fair bit amount of cash and got the full length HW100 with the thumb hole stock (Now scratched cause of a s*** bipod)

    Now that I am part of the German rifle club anything to watch out in particular for or be mindful of? I always give my rifle a good wipe down after shooting and keep it pressurised to 200 bars lol.

    Also anybody else get a new toy?

    Cheers,

    Martin

    Every airgunner should have a chrono. It would do my head in, not knowing what power my rifles were doing, also there consistency. They cost a fraction of the cost of a gun/scope Combo.

    Congratulations and welcome to 'ze German club'

    I don't think you need to keep it at 200 bar, probably 100 bar would be sufficient and cause less stress / wear on the seals if stored for any significant period of time.

    Chrono's are a bit boring but definitely necessary, just like a springer
    Therefore you need both.

    Re pellet weight, in theory yes as they travel faster, but that's another conversation entirely.

    Re a chrono, I can heartily recommend a Combro paired with a BlueShot cable and app.

    I own a hw100t and have had three others it should be completely fault free all of mine have been. Check its legal now with a chrono and check again in summer. Some rise in power by about half a foot lb after they have run in. But some dont just check every three months or so. Enjoy:)

    Congratulations on the new gun. Nice stock too, it looks like there's some nice grain under there so maybe allow some time to make it look beautiful whilst you save up for the other bits :D

    I'd definitely recommend a combro as others have said, though there no problem is saving a few quid and getting the £18 Chinese one that does the job.

    Well i am a target shooter I never allow for wind i just shoot dead on my zero trying not very succesfully to avoid gusts. They are very fast and they seem to do very well. there was a huge test done years ago by a guy called big dave it must have cost him a fortune. It was done in .177 at varying distances. And he announced tha the best .177 pellet for the 100 was the jsb or AA express 7.87 one head size. We all checked them out and nobody disagreed. I sold my 2 hw100,s a few years ago. I have just bought another 100 bought a tin of express and bang on. Give them a try if you have .177. All bets are off if its .22. Chrono I have a scan.

    Pellet weight isn’t the main factor when talking wind deflection. It’s more a case of BC. If it shoots the heavies I’d stick with them
