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.

    'Behaviour

    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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Just picked up a used hw100 pcp from a forum member. It came with a faber 232 bottle but it doesnt have a reg. My question seems simple, what do I need to fill the gun? I have the small probe that fits in the guns cylinder and a bottle without a reg. What reg and hoses do I need? Can I fit the reg myself. There is air in the bottle atm. Am I being simple?

    Post a picture of the bottle valve and all the bits you have, we can then tell you exactly what you need.

    To add a photo from a tablet:
    tap the icon as shown in first pic (pictures screen shot from my phone but it's should illustrate how to do it),
    View attachment 100654
    This should bring up the box in the second pic
    View attachment 100655
    Tap 'Choose file' and it gives the option of taking a pic or choosing an existing one. Once you've chosen, click on the text under choose file that says 'Upload File(s)' and it should add it to your post.

    There may be a better/different way but that's the way I do it. Hope that helps.q

    This is the bottle. The refil nozzle into the gun is the standard hw100 probe

    This is the one you need, posted by yourself earlier. It comes with the hose, so all you need is to put on the fill probe and you are good to go

    You need a DIN fitment gauge and bleed assy, which will cost you about £60 new. You may wish to tread carefully though - it's a low capacity, low pressure cylinder that is (assuming it's in test) arguably not worth chucking £60 at to get into a useable state; and basically worthless if it's out of test.

    I'd check the test and think very carefully before spending money on bits for the bottle - a new 300bar unit with surface valve can be had for £140.

    More info on cylinders here ;)
