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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

  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, looking for advice on a decent kit.
    New to air rifles and having put approx 600 pellets through my first rifle in the last 3 weeks - a secondhand HW57.
    Now looking at stripping it down and giving it a good and most likely overdue strip & clean.
    Drop in a kit too as i don't know the guns history.
    A stripdown guide would be helpful too if anyone has one.
    Cheers Paul.

    is it twangy? if its second hand and its not,it may already be fitted with a decent guide.best strip it
    down and have a look inside first.same internals as a 99.if you want to give it the full
    monty go for some piston mods (rw, this is what i did for you,but you didnt send me your gun!)

    I know that the HW57 is a noisy gun, so not too sure weather it is twangy or not as just a novice.
    Hopefully going to the Northern Monkey HFT shoot next weekend so i can ask peoples opinons of the gun.
    Would like to strip it and fit a kit with new spring so i know where i am with the gun and can continue on maintaining and getting to know my gun.
    Good point about stripping first !.
    Many thanks

    The 57 is just a 99 in a party frock. A Very nice gun when sorted! There are plenty of options available to you, feel free to ask any questions, I'm sure the collective knowledge will help.:)
