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.

    I bought my son a HW40 and it is fantastic to shoot as a back garden plinker. I am thinking of buying an HW75 for myself.

    The trigger on the HW40 is really nice and the open sights are good. My question, is to anyone who has both, are they pretty similar to shoot as in the trigger feel and are the open sights similar?

    They are both similar. I cant think of a problem with either of mine. I remember i had to file down the front sight on my 75 to get a 5 yard zero. Apart from the performance the 75 is georgeous. But the 40 is better value. On my two i would say the triggers are equal. Both gone now and i have a 45 black star just as georgeous as the 75 and much more fun. upload_2019-7-1_13-57-50.jpeg

    The thing about the HW40 is that unlike most things you never hear anyone say a bad word about them. They are just so good. I would get an HW45 just to have something different. I have a 40 and a 45 is next but the 40 is the one I won’t let go.

    So I’ve had 2 x blackstar, 1 x 40, 1 x 75 and 1 x 44

    The 45 are lovely solid pistols, give a kick are very accurate when you do you part but for me it’s not walkathons I wanted when target shooting - plinking great fun

    The 44 is one of the most accurate pistols I’ve ever had. A true joy but I sold it after 3 months - why? Because with a silencer and sight it was far too big to hold freehand and was boringly accurate in my garden at 25 yards....

    The 40 was my first real love - amazing pistol. It’s staying with me forever. My only small critism is being a lefty the fake mag release used to rub on my hand and after a many shots I knew about it (since filed down) and when cocking you tend to press on the sharp rear sight... that said it is super accurate and a real real joy to shoot

    My 75 is as accurate as the 40. Iron sights vs truglo (I personally prefer iron, well until it starts to get gloomy).
    The 75 has the same solid construction as the 45’s, fits nicely in the hand - try however as the grips is just a fraction too small for me - my palm rolls over the rest) but it is much easier to cock - has a wider and longer top and is super accurate. Oh and you cock the hammer to shoot it! Love it

    I paid £300 for my 75 but some are up to £370 in shops.

    I would pay £300 but I wouldn’t pay anymore - shop around

    But yes - get both, you certainly won’t be disappointed

    Thanks Reevo that is everything I needed to hear. The HW40 is my lads so I don't want to keep borrowing it but it is my favourite gun to shoot in the back garden. I will get a 75 and maybe later a 45. I have the 700SA with shoulder stock but it is just too accurate at our 15m back garden range and I will probably end up selling it.

    Strange how we end up selling guns for being too accurate but it does take some of the fun out of plinking.

    Irish logic isn’t it!

    I want a 700sa but being pcp they’re too loud for the back garden, add a silencer and too long for freehand....

    Add a stock and I have better rifles...

    The 40 and 75 are brilliant

    In my mind single stroke pneumatics are the very best pistol platform

    I've recently acquired a PP700W and I really don't find it loud at all.
    Admittedly the hammer spring tension is backed right off but it's still powerful enough to shoot to 20 yards
