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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    What a fantastic piece of kit. If it was me I'd get the design registered before someone pinches your design. It's definitely put an HW44 back on my wish list again.

    Lovely work cottonpicker. I’m shortly to take delivery of an HW44 and moderator. What I’d like to do is keep the mod attached and buy a suitably sized pistol case for transport - I’d like to keep the stock, if possible, in the case too.

    DOH! Sent before finishing, damned iPad has a mind of its own! My query was one of dimensions. Before trying to source a case I need to try and establish what will fit where, pistol / moderator and stock. Please could you let me know overall length / width. Many thanks

    Many thanks Cottonpickers. Once I pick up the pistol and find a suitable case I’ll be in touch!

    What I’ll have is a very accurate pistol which I’m hoping to get some enormous fun out of - never a replacement for my rifle but a flexible short range addition to the armoury

    mip: great stuff. the 44 is nice :)

    hw: For me I need something quiet in the garden - not a lot of range, so its why I got the pistol. I'd like a rifle - For the accuracy, engineering and power but the reality is that its a bit pointless for me really. I'd need to take it to a range to really use it, and I don't do that often. However, with what I have got I get twice the fun when I add the stock - suddenly I can easily hit those chalk targets and the tiny spinners, but I equally like to go back to the pistol. Anyway - I'm having fun which is what its all about.

    Cottonpickers,
    I can't find your stock in eBay anymore.
    Are you still making it?

    I was doing some measurements with a long eye relief scope (PAO 2-8x32) and I found the ideal length to be added by the stock is 38cm in order to use 8x magn. Additionally need to have an extended scope mount which send the scope about an inch forward.
    Using a shorter stock I will need a rail extender pushing the scope even forward to be able to use the 8x magn. This option keeps the ”rifle" compact but will lose a bit of balance.

    I’ve stopped selling currently while I improve the design - I am strengthening it.

    Mine arrived a few days ago and wow, David you are a star a great chap to deal with and you give plenty of information
    I love my stock it has changed my pistol into an indoor rat killer.
    We now have 8 permissions with the last one being part of an industrial estate we needed close range 10 yards may be 13 yards
    the HW44 is more than capable as we know but I was not happy and definitely not with the pistol scope. Adding the red dot made a big difference and now the stock makes the shot so much more steady. Both myself and my shooting buddy are still practicing by throwing a small target and once on the floor we have to find and hit so much better with the red dot. With out the stock we could only do this with a bipod and that is not ideal I found but this stock is a game changer for me. Once you brace yourself I am amazed how accurate it has become.

    Thanks for the feedback. It’s been a rocky journey - so many subtle changes to the design mainly to improve strength without affecting looks. I think it’s there now but was painful getting to this point. A number of customers had failed (usually broken foot) parts. I can only thank them for the feedback and patience. I’ll call this mk3. Petg printed for strength with lower cheek piece and a centimetre longer to aid shouldering.
