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.

    Pick this up, the other day, off of Ebay. It's the cylinder and stock from a HW95. The plan was to rebuild it to a HW98 but so far I have been unable to find the 98 stock, so for this resone, it will be a hybrid 98 as it will have the 95 stock but everything else will be the 98.
    So far i have gathered everything up and just waiting for the parts to turn up:)
    I will rebuild it and tune it with my own parts and see how well it shoots:up:

    That's been done on this forum before... I think the robin (but may be wrong) has done one, and i think it's a lovely combination!

    I could be wrong, but I think that other than the shroud and the stock they're the same rifle.

    Yeah, one & the same apart from that bull-barrel and the adjustable stock. My HW95 started out life as an HW98: all that's left of the HW98 is the cylinder.

    I don't have the hw95 barrel anymore but the barrel is shorter than the hw98 but it's shorter overall because you screw the silencer onto the hw95 if that makes sense. I love my set up, it has a bushnell legend on top and it has a v Mach kit in with a shot masters piston and it's a beast @ 40 meters :D

    I do think I prefer it to my straight up 98, am I right in saying they sell it like that in Germany as standard?

    probably one of the reasons it's more accurate is because of the length of the barrel. Definitely better looking with the 98 barrel guys

    OK whilst waiting for the barrel to turn up, thought I'll get some work done!

    Got this the other day, the description said and i quote "in great condition" but there was something quit not write LOL
    [​IMG]

    Notice the pin holding the piston sear lever down! not sure if they ever come like this but it would not do the job here!
    [​IMG]

    So first thing was to knock this pin out
    [​IMG]

    Ah that looks better:).........But wait! there is something else amiss! the rear sear spring is missing!
    [​IMG]

    luckily Chambers had these in stock:)
    [​IMG]

    So the next job was to put this spring (Rear Sear Spring) back in. So the first thing to do, is release the Upper rear sear lock by pushing this pin out
    [​IMG]

    That release the whole thing
    [​IMG]

    Putting the Rear sear Spring is not easy, I needed to clamp the whole trigger unit down! and then band the sring back whilest holding it in place with the pin but allowing enough space to push the Rear sear lock in place!
    [​IMG]

    So that was that little job:up: The next thing I did was to bling it up with a little polish of the trigger!
    [​IMG]

    standard on the right

    I have a 95 in a nice 98 stock but I would prefer the luxus stock if anyone fancies a swap.
