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.

    Relube once a year if your a heavy shooter.

    Strip down,wash all the grease out of the cylinder,spring and guides and replace it.

    Dont dry fire the 45 it will do damage to it.
    Other than that they are bullet proof and a joy to shoot.

    Great pistols, but they desperately need degreasing to stop them dieseling. Never dry fire it! It could result in damage.

    If you get tired of the recoil and want to reduce it, get in touch.

    Do you mean this type of dry fire - A dry fire option also exists with the ’45. Simply pull back the hammer, (which releases the top section of the action), then just snap the top section closed again, and the trigger can be tried in ‘dry’ mode, without actually cocking the action. This seems to be safe to me rather than pulling the barrel back ?

    Don't actually cock the gun so the spring latches,opening the top and closes it is fine.

    Ahhh right, Yes you can operate it like that without any issue allthough its a little pointless unless you are tuning the trigger i guess.
    Basicly it just engages the trigger sear. You can pull and "click" the trigger but thats about it.

    Yeah I agree, it doesn't give a true representation of how the trigger feels when cocked.

    I think you would find it front heavy if you fitted a silencer, Allthough I have never seen a adapter to fit one.

    Huricanes are a little more twangy but no where near as nice to shoot.

    Don't take it to bits.

    Unable to leave anything alone, I stripped mine to fit a kit. I drifted out the pin for the end cap using a clamp and a socket, and let it out slowly. The cap came up a wee bit when I let the clamp out, and I thought that was the preload let out of the spring.

    WRONG! :facepalm:

    The cap shot 8 feet across the room and put a nice dent in the brick wall inches away from the TV. I'd been using the clamp and letting it out slowly, but it just stopped moving so I thought it was safe. Just needed a bit of a knock to release it...

    Ended up having to screw wood down to a B&D Workmate to get the thing back together. Was not good fun at all.

    Just enjoy shooting the thing, they're awesome!

My friend wants me to take it round to his to test it on his COMBRO CB-625 Mk4 he doesn't know if it will work with the hw45 but he did say he got it to work on a few of his air pistols.[/h]

    You'll be lucky to fit a combro as the barrels recessed about an inch in the housing. I'm not saying it's not possible but it will be fiddly and 1 mistake bye bye combro. Let us know how it goes. I know you'll love it.

    Ps my hurricanes have had full trigger jobs and there no differnt except power to the 45 (including lighter trigger springs at 2quid each).
