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.

    This may seem like the ramblings of a madman, however, has anyone changed the mod on a hw44 to a screw on one? The dual set screw system works, but I would prefer the screw on variety for peace of mind, something like the arrangement of the AA s510r. Just a thought.

    I find the bottom screw works loose very easily, suppose a dab of lock tight would fix it, but I agree a screw on mod would be better.

    Both of mine worked loose, probably as I didn't hang off the allen key. Will have to investigate the shrouding and see what, if anything can be done.

    Could a 3D printed adaptor be made up. One side would use the twin grub screws, the other side threaded for 1/2" UNF

    Hadn't thought of that. It would extend the overal length slightly, pushing the weight forward and possibly making it a little more muzzle heavy. That all depends on the moderator used. Use of a carbon fibre one may offset that. The adapter set screws could be loc tighted in position to prevent coming loose. Hmmmm, interesting idea, right, who can print one up, that would be the next hurdle.

    Any possibility of some photos of the current arrangement, I am curious because the HW44 is quickly rising to my must scratch that itch list. I would like to fit a Huggett Atom that I have waiting for just this sort of occasion :).

    Unfortunately, i'm not at home to photo it. It would mean modifying the existing barrel shroud, essentially cutting it back slightly and then threading the barrel. I'm not going to be back until December unfortunately, but I'm sure another owner on here would be able to photo their's and post accordingly.

    That doesn't sound like something I would be willing to do to a £600+ pistol.

    The standard silencer works very well, think the answer is to put a drop of lock tight on the threads and leave it fitted.

    I don't really understand the need to change the silencer on a HW44 as they are whisper quiet with the standard Weirauch silencer as of all the moderators that they make.

    Ive got an HW44 in both 22 and 177 and they are both very silent as they are as standard.

    Absolutely no issues with the performance, so far i've managed to lose 2 allen keys when out and about. I think it's going to be threadloc I did look at a modification, but as sagalout says, it is a lot of money for a pistol to go and modify it. I'll sit on the idea until I get back to the UK later on this year.

    I like the Atom. Just thought it would look good on an HW44 and I've got one doing nothing at the moment but I would have to buy a Weihrauch one.

    Have you completed the design of your stock @Cottonpickers and if so are you selling them again?

    It’s two steps forward and one back. I’m planning a general redesign to lower the cheek piece. Work is busy so it’s hard to find the time. Hopefully will complete before Christmas but I’d like to get it right.

    Yep Its a bit of a pain when you have to remove it to fit back in the case. Why o why did they not just put a 1/2 unf thread on end of barrel? Guess so you have to purchase their own silencer..
