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.

    not sure how barrels are attached on HW100s but usually they are grub screws in the breech block so yeah,if its spinning freely there is something wrong.

    Damn those HW100's :rolleyes:

    Stock off (2 bolts underneath), cylinder off; there's an angled grub screw between the bottle mount and barrel in the front face of the breech block - nip this up (don't hang off it).

    Remove the mod before you put the stock and cylinder back on; refit it with a little oil and a gentle twist - again no need to hang off it.

    Refit stock and cylinder -job done ;)

    There's a mod can be done to help prevent this in future. It involves tapping a hole on the top of area where the forward scope rail lives then an additional grubscrew's put in there so there's a more effective grip on the barrel.

    The HW100 does not have a transfer port hole in the barrel like the BSAs. If the barrel twists your POI will change but the power should stay the same.

    When my barrel rotated I thought about getting a grub screw drill through the breech block but my local gun smith said I could but I can bond it in so rock solid and if ever you need to remove it a touch of heat on it and it will come out. Also he positioned the barrel stamping so it was on top instead of on the side and it shot really good

    I have started milling a little slot in the barrel to allow the grub screw to locate in the slot, to prevent future turning. It is a less drastic method of stopping the rotating barrel issue, especially for people who don't want their breech blocks drilled and tapped.

    Admittedly I forgot to include "rotate barrel back to desired position" in my post, however as Darrin points out; on a '100 the transfer port ain't in the barrel ;)
