    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.

    Good evening all

    I hate to be one of those guys, just registered and bang right in with a pile of questions but I have perused and googled a few things that will probably be pretty basic to you learned peeps so thought I would just throw myself at your mercy and ask, thats what we're here for I suppose isnt it, and one day once I know someone may well ask me the same thing haha :)

    I have got an HW77K .22, its the one with the underlever cocking mechanism but I think it is older as it only has a spring loaded ball bearing to hold the underlever in place, I believe later models had a safety catch.

    Anyway my question was, how would I go about fitting a sling to this type of rifle? I can only imagine the strain on the underlever could cause it to pop open? Its a heavy old beast as anyone who has one will know, wandering far with it can be a struggle
    Thanks in advance for any help, I have a few more questions to come (Serial numbers, scopes, zeroing) but will start with that one :)

    Great wee forum also while I remember to say, learned a lot already just flicking through the stickies!:up:

    Excellent

    Thanks a lot for that, I was just worried that the underlever would pop but it does hold pretty firmly

    Its a great wee gun, been well cared for, quite proud of it but its just a spot on the heavy side to lug far!

    Cheers

    I have a 97k and 77, both with a clamp type sling swivel on the underlever (as above) with no problems at all. Try to put it as close the the stock as you can - i.e. give enough room to prevent fouling when you open the underlever, but reducing as far as possible the amount of leverage it has to open the underlever. Also, I stretched a thin piece of self amalgamating rubber tape under the clamp to protect the metal.

    I sometimes us a threaded QD stud to replace one of the front stock screws on my HW95, not sure if this is also any use for you. I order a lot of swivels and get one of the studs with each set, I normally just sell them off on E B A Y for a couple of £'s.

    If you would like to try one I am happy to send one over FOC next time I get some (should be in the next week or so) in and if it is any use, you can always just stick a couple of £'s in the 'Tinbum Buggy Wheels' fund (Don't worry we can explain that later on).

    Great cheers, all good stuff

    I checked out the Ebay link, thats exactly what I had looked at before, also good advise regarding the placement on the underlever, common sense but I likely wouldnt have thought of it haha

    Leaky5 - forgive my ignorance, a little green really, do you have the strap on the side of the stock at the front? I thought about that too but thought it would be a no-no

    no problem. its a mark 1 as from mark 2 had latch detent, Mk1 was ball detent unless its been fitted with a silencer. but never had issues with ours and slings and silencer ball detents as you dont carry the gun cocked anyway.

    Would this help with using the sling as a support ,easier getting the gun off then back to your shoulder loaded Leaky5? Less prone to snagging and or change the way the gun sits when youve got it at rest so to speak ? :)

    I tend to have a slung rifle barrel down, so it does not make much difference if it is on the barrel or side. The main reason to use this is keep the sling off the barrel, I know some people don't like to mount a swivel band on the barrel.
