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.

    Just received my HW45 from SWS. Heres a run-down on day one:

    Unpacked her, packaging is rather miserable for a world-renowned Company like Weihrauch, but it serves a purpose.

    First impressions: very nice piece of Metal that fires smaller pieces of Metal at something.However, on detailed perusal I am very slightly disappointed with the finish, it would appear to My novice eye that the outside Has been painted and the inside is beautifully blued, shame.

    The weapon Has fantastic balance, the Moment you Place it in your firing hand, you just know that you ve made the right decision, it looks like an overgrown 9 Milly and appears very "muzzle heavy", but the Centre of gravity is amazing. I ve had the privilage of firing Most NATO bog-standard pistols, and very few have such balance, you know when your hands not shaking excessively that you have a good chance of hitting the target!

    The sights are fantastic, call me old-fashioned, or call me an old G*t, but if My Grandma was still alive, even she could hit something at 5 yards with this Truglow system, its that good that I m actually considering using her forever on Open sights,I need the challenge away from all the technological sighting Systems we have nowadays.

    Back to appearance, disappointing is the "HW45" and the "Warning blah blah" lasered in White on both sides of the weapon, makes it Look somewhat "Airsoft". Again, not a big problem. The pistol grips are real walnut, and are a nice touch.

    The safety catch is ambidexrious, its not automatic, but is overly obvious to promote its usage, but I found that once in aim, and then discovering that I d forget to select fire, I had to come out of aim to disengage the safety, this will Need practice.

    The cocking action is relatively light, the only problem being that when fitted with optics and/or supressor, it could get fiddly. I found the First stage (120m/s) good for firing in My garden, but could nt resist Stage 2 (170m/s), the Stage 1 is for indoor clubs, the only way to fire this pistol is full power.

    The weapon is very loud unsurpressed, and Weihrauch oil it to death so it Looks like you re driving a FV432 across Batus everytime you fire ( I ve only fired 10 shots so far!)

    The Dry-firing malarky is a Myth, to dry-Fire this pistol, release the Hammer, raise the carriage a few mm, close, and then you can operate the trigger, not fully cock and Fire off as per Mythos Internetous.

    End of day one for someone who used to fire "Airguns" in the 70s and 80s.............awesome.

    Compliments My HW97k, Made in Germany to a tee, finish could be better, but its the performance that really does put this pistol above the rest. Well worth the money, as a Side-arm for hunting , plinking or vermin control, for 200 odd quid you ve got the choice of 24 hours in a German Whore-house, or owning this babe, the choice is yours.........

    A good appraisal. I enjoyed mine for a time but the plug ugly looks eventually persuaded me to pass it on. Speaking of plug ugly, I now have a couple of Webley Hurricanes which I absolutely love! Takes all sorts ...

    Great guns. (Weapon?..)

    I preferred my older .177 model to my brand new .22.

    The finish/paint stuff looked cheap on the new one. I'd prefer blue to that shyt anyday!

    I will find a keeper hw45 one day. But it won't be a new one, I don't trust anything new these days.
