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.

    Hi guys,

    I’ve had my eye on a .20 Hw77k Laminate on Gunstar which is second hand and was looking a second opinion on price before I buy something over the odds. My feelings are that it is too overpriced but I just need a sensible second opinion before parting with hard earned cash. Maybe someone here knows the gun? It’s priced at £575? Thoughts?

    Special edition HW77K laminated .20
    -Argos Athlon 4-16 x 40 IR side focus scope (with original box)
    -Coasters on turrets for ease of use.
    -BKL mounts
    -Hawke bubble level.
    -Padded gun bag.

    I wouldn’t part with that sort of money mate, way over the top IMO. Better bargains out there.
    Drop the scope and bits and see what he/she would do for gun only, that will tell you how much from new they would expect.

    They're about £420 new with no glass, add £50 for the .20cal option, then add the scope & mounts.
    Just for the gun going by the 2/3rds rule that should be about £300 then, optics warehouse are doing a deal on Athlon scopes at the mo so really £575 isn't far off a new one, you're paying full price for the gun with a bit knocked off the scope.

    Theres another blue laminate one on GS for £490, .177 TBT with scope and case in Lancashire. Still over priced though.
    Does say “Plonkers will be ignored” so that would rule out a sensible offer as this is another case of wanting near new money.

    The only 4-16x40 Athlon I can find on O.W is the Talos at £120!
    Roughly added up its £620 new, 2/3rds of that is £400+/-
    Bearing in mind it may be a better Athlon scope, but not by that much.

    You can import a standard stock HW77/77k from SWS Germany for £350 direct to your door.
    The blue stock will not make it shoot any better....
    Good luck.
    Peter.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Yeah I just wanted to have people with sensible heads tell me ‘NO’ it’s too expensive :) I had figured that it wasn’t far off the price of a new one. It is the same one on the list of inconceivable from Cloverleafs wonderful Freeads post!

    I just love the .20 cal but can be impatient at times! I don’t like the wait times! I ordered a HW97k in .20 from Woodys of Wembley at start of June and didn’t get it until end of November.. long wait. Love it though!

    Thanks for the link! Haven’t been on the SWS site before. Lots more stuff to drool over! Yeah it was a long wait for the HW97k .20... but boy was it worth it. I also bought a HW100T Laminate stock in .20 off Woodys in May as it was already in stock. Just love the .20 for sub 12ft lbs.
