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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  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.

Question HW97 Cocking mechanism

    I'm a bit worried about the cocking mechanism of my HW97k. I've only shot 50 pellets through the rifle and the ramp where the cocking arm slides along to lock in place has already a dent which is noticeable when I slowly close the cocking arm because it gets stuck in that dent and I have to press a bit harder to close the cocking arm fully.

    I justed wanted to ask if this goes away over time or if it gets worse? How many openings and closings can this ramp withstand where the cocking arm slides along? I'm a bit worried because I've shot mainly break barrel air rifles and never expierenced such "problems".

    My old 77's have both gotten the same marks though, and twenty years on they have never cause me any problems. If you are really worried though, as Knighthawk says, just move it forward very slightly. Too much will make it too loose.

    The more you use it the smoother it will get as it wears a nice shiny groove to slide along. You can polish it with some W&D paper wrappped around a pencil ro improve it.

    Hey guys thank you for the tips! Moving the silencer a tad forward is a bit tricky. There's one allen screw to loosen and that thing seems to be glued onto tbe barrel with some kind of very stubborn thread locker. I cannot get it off. :D

    Decided to just wear it in.
