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.

    Hi there I have been offered an hw35 to buy.
    The rifle has one problem though when you cocking it the piston does not always hold.
    The owner has no idea what the problem is but has been told it could be the trigger sear.
    Does the hw35 have the rekord trigger unit the rifle is from 1980.

    Can anything else cause this problem when cocking.
    Is it possible to buy a new sear.
    I have seen one picture the rifle need the barrel reblued apart from that it's quite tidy.
    The seller wants £80 for it.
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

    From my limited experience rectifying the problem could range from anything between five minutes with an allen key to adjust the sear engagement to a complete replacement trigger unit (around £80).

    Considering this, the fact that a barrel reblue will cost in the region of £40 + hassle and that a decent used HW35 can be had for around £150; I'd want to be paying less than 80 sheets...

    I'm afraid I agree. Whether the trigger is easily sorted or not, £80 seems a lot of money for a HW35 in such poor condition. I was offered £80 for my mint, fully functioning HW35E! ( I declined)

    I think price wise it is ok if the rest is fine.Split down it has enough value in its parts.Could be simple fix as said,SH trigger about £40.00 should fix it or could be piston rod if the sear is not at fault.Either way it is easy to work on & worth a go.
    What cal? by the way

    As others have said it could be just possibly be a matter of trigger adjustment but if it isn't you won't find out till you've stripped it down and possibly find it's going to cost quite a bit more to fix but as LM says you could always sell the individual parts and recoup your money that way if you didn't want the cost of restoring it.
