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.

HW25L - where can these be bought new?

    I'm struggling to find anywhere that sells the Weihrauch HW25L. Has it been discontinued?

    It seems as though it's been replaced by the HW30s. Does the HW30s feel that much bigger/heavier?

    If the HW25 is still for sale, does anyone know where...?

    Thanks.

    :D

    the 30 is a bigger gun and can be quite capable at mid distance ranges. I got both of mine 2nd hand and not regreted them. I dont think the 25 has been discontinued has Weirauch dont usually discontinue anything. There well worth serching out and make a good first gun for a little un.:up:

    Thanks, but they don't seem to have them on their website. They do have the HW99s at £269, which seems about £70 more than a lot of other places I've seen.

    Was hoping to get an HW25 for my son.

    He's 8, but the size of a 10 year old...!

    If he's a bigger build the 99 will be a better choice IMO. He may quickly outgrow the 25 and that'll be money wasted. A good portion of our junior shooters have 99's and do well with them.

    Hmmm... Perhaps the HW30 will be a better bet. He's growing quickly!

    The HW25 is not in the current Weihrauch Catalogue, so maybe replaced by the HW99?.
    Versandhaus Schneider - Germany still list them on their website at about E170 + E30 carriage and a re-spring here.
    I would go for a good HW99, new or secondhand, and your lad won't grow out of it, as has been said above.
    I bought my grandson an HW99 2 years ago when he was 11. Still going strong.
    Good luck.
    Peter.

    I think I'll take him up to Pellpax and let him handle them. Could be an expensive trip!! It's probably worth a few extra quid for peace of mind.

    I had a conversation a while back with an rfd who was talking about one of the lesser hw's being discontinued but I can't remember whether it was to be the 25 or 57.

    To be honest I'd either go 30s or 99s if you want an hw, or something cheaper. Believe it or not, for a Junior gun the xs15 isn't as awful as you might expect.
    If you go 30 or 99, still be prepared to strip and relube. They're lovely once done but not all of them are little angels out of the box, as I discovered myself recently.
