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.

    Hi all. Due to a lull in the windy weather today I managed to get out and sight up my new rifle, a brand new HW95K. Wow, what a stunning gun, I had no idea how good this rifle was going to be. I traded in two springers for this HW and I honestly cannot believe how nice this is to shoot. I thought my BSA Lightening SE GRT was good, but this is miles better, in fact I’d go so far as to say it’s in a different league! At 25 to 35 metres I’m almost getting the same results as my PCP.

    Is there anything the Germans don’t make better than us? As you can tell, I am truly gobsmacked with the performance of this rifle, thank you Weihrauch it was worth every penny.

    Why the surprise ?...

    The “95” is an excellent little rifle as long as you get a good one, I take it yours is standard ?...

    If you think the standard rifle’s good you wanna try one that’s been fettled... :thumb:

    Ps, sadly the last two I’ve owned have been complete and utter $h1t€...

    S'not the same tho is it, comparing an underlever with a break barrel?
    Pro Elite v 95 would be more appropriate IMHO. But even thats not a direct comparison as the PE was made for the US market and FAC really ( I think)
    :)

    BTW, I'd put my fettled 97 up against any TX, anytime,... :thumb:

    .....[sits back and waits for inevitable TX v 97 debate].... :popcorn:

    I’d put my first 95 up against my current HC any day of the week, I’d expect the 95 to win too...

    Alas, the last two 95’s I’ve owned were utter 60110x...

    A TX200 is about £130 more than an HW95 too, so it *should* be better.

    Anyway, the 95 is a fine rifle and even sweeter when tuned. Enjoy :)

    You know what I meant, generally the TX is compared to the 97 or the Walther (eg: all underlevers) :thumb:

    I’ve got mine shooting quite nicely now, lightened piston, opened up TP, plastic internals etc. It’s 11.5fpe, and in most decent light I can see the pellet fly.

    I've shot several TX's at the range (other peoples) and none of them have been as nice to shoot as my 97, but...my 97 has been tuned so its very smooth, whereas the TX's I have shot have been standard, as far as I know, so maybe thats why, but its all subjective anyway isn't it.
    In any case a nicely fettled 95 will be a very nice gun.... :thumb:

    Thanks for the comments guys and I think I’ve learnt two things. First, that there is always a better gun out there than the you have just spent your hard earned cash on! And second, that I might do well to get the 95 tuned. Can anyone recommend a particular tuning kit? There seems to be several but I’ve no experience as to which is the best??

    The thing is a TX is designed to be usable straight from the box without needing to fettle it before you’ve even had a chance to take it out in the field whereas your 97 isn’t “hence” you’ve seen fit to tune it “so” comparing a tuned 97 to a standard TX is a bit like comparing lard to unsalted butter to salted butter, the “lard” being a bog standard off the shelf 97 with the unsalted butter being a standard TX and the proper salted stuff being a tuned 97...

    The TX is good from the off with the “option” to make it better should you feel the urge “whereas” the 97 is mediocre at best ‘in standard form’ with the “necessity” to make it better... :thumb:

    Ya might wanna try the cheap route first, it might give you what you are looking for.

    TbT guides for a start, and a damned good trigger sear polish will be a definite improvement.
