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.

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

HW95k - forum built.

    This is my new HW95k. I bought it in December from Martin22. It came with the original mk1 stock, and had been stage one tuned by Dave Hall. I loved it immediately, but discovered that it was only giving just over 9fpe at the muzzle. However, it was very stable, with a very gentle shot cycle and also very quiet , thanks to the HW moderator (which has had a weight inserted into it to counter the famous 95 muzzle flip).

    For a scope I put a Hawke Panorama on it, but this proved to be faulty, so it had to go back to Deben. Due to one thing and another it wasn't possible for them to replace it until Friday last week, but the patience paid off in the end. I really like the Panoramas and Deben's Paul Weekes was very helpful and patient in dealing with my repeated emails!

    In the meantime I bought a Luxus stock from Mark.177 and fitted it. In addition to this I bought a sling from Leaky5 and fitted it. The rifle was coming together well, but I needed a bit more power. After all, this was my first foray into .177 territory since I was a kid - low power gave me the same trajectory pretty much as my .22 rifles, which rendered the exercise pointless. One email to Welsh Willy later and a tuning kit arrived, so I spent yesterday morning putting it all together. She's now giving a very healthy 11.1fpe with JSB Exacts and is silky smooth and very accurate.

    I'd heard a lot about the 95k and it seemed like a bit of a Marmite rifle - some love them and some hate them. I have to say I'm glad I bought it as I really like it, and the girly calibre seems like fun. It's a very simple job to strip the rifle - ten minutes at the most.

    Anyway, here she is:

    Lovely rifle mate,

    I have two 97s in my shed, one has a cracked laminate stock, both look and shoot like Censored. My neigbour asked me why they won't hold zero, after handing me tin of milbro rhinos, and an smk scope!!!!

    2 brilliant guns in a sorry state, think I will tell him a bit more than some decent pellets and a bluing touch up pen is required

    Just out of asking JK, why didn't you just add some preload to the Dave Hall tuned set up ? to bring up the power.

    I did at first but the spring was too short and the top hat too long, so I ended up with the latch rod not engaging the sear.

    I'll stick with the one it has - the balance is good and it's not too hold-sensitive. That said, the Slimtech does look very sexy indeed!

    It's a slick looking rifle JK, your first .177 since you was a kid, next thing your be telling us is that your considering .20 cal, the best cal at sub 12 ft lbs, but poorly proved for, diet wise.

    Leaky5 slings are very good indeed. I've got one on my 97 as well, in a slightly different style.

    Yes, it's clamped to the underlever. I thought that having a swivel there would be a pain, but it's fine. I'll see if I can find a picture of it.
