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.'

  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.

    I think I have a very very slow leak, about 5 bar every few hours maybe.

    I've checked the cylinder off the gun and lost to pressure. So I changed the small fill valve o ring and still seem to lose some.

    I then noticed this on the cylinder.. Is the little gouge on the inner edge normal?

    Yes this is normal, it is where the air bleeds out when fitting/removing the cylinder.

    Thought as much.. Looks like it's going back to Hull Cartridge then, luckily I only bought it last week so won't cost me a penny to get sorted!

    I'm thinking of getting a new HW100 soon but I've read a few threads about leaks on new guns recently and while I was in my local gun shop a few weeks ago I customer brought one back he only had a few weeks saying it was loosing air as you describe. has their renowned quality or QC dropped ?

    If you read many reviews on any air gun you will find people have had problems with every make going
    All I can say is Ive owned 5 different HW100's and every one has been perfect
    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone

    I'll put it another way. I've just sold my mk2 rapid in full leftie version that took me 3 years to find as they're rare as rocking horse Censored, instead of my HW100 as I needed to get the mrs a 40th treat

    A pic of them both side by side but the rapid went first and it was a very nice gun that had been fully sorted by philD of the rapid forum

    It hasn't put me off at all, it has warranty for a reason and wil get sorted. If you think how many HW100's are sold each year, and then how many threads you have seen that could have been created over say 3 years. It's not worth worrying about.

    yes it's a bit of an inconvenience, but personally I think once they have rectified it it would blow the rest out the water for the money.

    I've had a few HW100's, still have two, never had any issues with any of them apart from the excessive grease that is put on the hammer/shuttle assembly.
    Apparently this is done at HC and not Weihrauch, it's very easily remedied though.

    Any make and model of gun can play up including HW100's but, i rate them very highly, i have lots of guns and if i had to sell any or all of them my HW100's would be the last to go ;)
