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.

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.

  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.

    A little project I've had on the back burner for a while. My hw95k .177 has been v mached, steel muzzle weight and was running sweet BUT I fancied a change so I sourced a HW98 .22 barrel

    It landed today did the barrel so tonight I set about fitting it, not a hard job I have had this in bits so many times messing about with it so a steady 25 mins and job was done and all my tools, clothes put away :D

    I'm rather happy with it, a touch shorter but a little bit heavier with the shroud

    I think that looks really nice mate, I've just put an order in for a 98 but have been told they are out of stock with suppliers on the .177 so have to wait, but may contemplate this option now I've seen this, I'll fire an email off now!

    Thanks guys :up:

    Really like the look, weight and feel of .22 again on this build. It's funny I switched to .177 a few years back but mainly shoot .20 these days and would of loved this in .20 but .22 will be fine and a bit smoother firing cycle too :D

    Looking lovely mate, really good work:up:. I went through a period of wanting a hw95/98 about 5 or so months ago.... I want one again! I just moved house and there is a chicken coop in the bottom of my garden, looks to be full of rats:D. I will probably sell a few things and take myself to solware and pick something up :rolleyes:. Maybe I will try something in .20, might be good for slapping rats around the garden.

    Happy shooting,

    Alex

    .20 will work on the rats, one of my very first Nv outings was a ratting session and nailed over 50 in a old barn, I have never seen as many in my life as I did in that night. Next visit I was expecting the same but only got a handful lol.

    I'm pretty pleased with my work on this and just need to mount my bushnel legend and it's out shooting with it :D

    Or I might be a cheapskate and go for a hw99 in the full .22. It will only be for rats and plinking in my new garden, my garden is 35 yards long so plenty.

    I was lucky I sourced the barrel as a private sale but I've red that people buy them from Germany, not sure where from though and never looked into it. Regarding power with the hw95k .177 barrel and v mach kit it was just over 10 ft/lbs so I had plenty of room for increase in power and it's not been a problem

    I can dig out a link to that German web site for you, if you want it Robin ?

    I don't know why people say the Hw98 is a ugly rifle, I'd like to see that stock available on the 77 & 80 rifles.

    Looks nice that - as an aside the German market gets the '98 with the '95 Luxus stock off the shelf :)

    Only on an exchange basis, a barrel for a barrel.

    And I believe that can be any barrel in exchange. Does not have to be from the same model of rifle.

    Here is the German company, http://www.sportwaffen-schneider.de/ although looking at the cost from them would be about £115. So from Chambers with RFD transfer fee would probably be cheaper or abut the same.

    Exchange? You send them a barrel, they knock some cash off a new barrel and send it straight to you? Am i following this right?
