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.

    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.'

  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.

    I'm looking to get something as a project, something nice. I'm looking to spend the money on a gun to tune and tweak, as well as create a custom stock and 'pimp' the action.

    If you were doing this, what action would you choose?

    A Rapid would be a good option, easy to mod and work on, still easy to source parts too.

    Or Maybe an HW100, i find them very easy to work on too.

    ;)

    That's the second time this morning that I have read this comment from you about the 100 being easy to work on. I wish I had some confidence to take my one apart and check her over. Thing is, I love that rifle so much, that I would be absolutely mortified if I were to then be unable to put her back together in full working order. How and when did you decide to take the plunge in to stripping a 100. Are there any good videos to learn from. KB1

    Hi mate, i've owned and worked on these guns for years, so it's very straight forward for me.

    There are guides on the net, definitely on the Weihrauch owners site, and also a really good guide on a Polish site (translator needed).

    I would advise anybody who is still worried about stripping one, to take pics as they go but, once you've done it and understand what does what, and why, it does become much easier.

    I work on all of my guns except the electronic stuff ;)

    I totally agree if it isn't broke etc but, as soon as the warranties were out on mine, i removed the AT's stripped everything down, cleaned and rebuilt them, balanced the reg and hammer, and apart from the usual maintenance i never have to touch them. When tuned to their best, i don't think there's much to touch them.

    I once built one almost entirely from spare parts ;)

    Assuming I went down the rapid route, what year/version/calibre?

    I'd be inclined to go for a .20, as I have recently been converted to this calibre, plus it has more of a special sound to it.

    Thoughts on that?
