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.

  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.

    Hello,

    My HW110 is almost 2 years old. It has been flawless and a dream to shoot. Recently I filled it up and the next day it was completely empty! I filled it up again and it was empty the next day. I filled it up a third time, hoping to perhaps dislodge any debris trapped in the fill port, and can still hear a slow hiss of air escaping from the fill port. The next day it was empty again.

    I assume the next steps is to remove the cylinder and remove the quickfill cover and replace the seals. Before I do this is there anything else to try? And since this is my first time removing a Weihrauch air cylinder, and special things to know or look for while I make the repair?

    I can hear and feel the air escaping from the fill port opening

    Thanks for any advice!

    @warrenater is correct. The HW110 cylinder isn't end user removable like most other pcp's.

    The HW100 cylinder however is - this often causes confusion.

    Wow - @cloverleaf provided an epic breakdown! This is all good to know even if I never intend to strip it down like that.

    I am hoping @cloverleaf can chime in and tell me if I can service the quick fill / inlet valve seals like they do with the HW100? As stated they appear to look the same, but I cannot remove the entire cylinder from the action. Can I use a tool to rotate off the quick fill assembly? If so what tool will best get it off?

    Google is a wonderful thing, but in all honesty i would wait and see what cloverleaf has to say as just a bar might be sufficient , also holding the cylinder might be your biggest problem I suspect ? A case of rather you than me !

    Glad you found my overview useful :)

    Geometrically the main cylinder and front gauge / valve assy are identical to those of the 100, so in principal replacing the inlet valve O-ring is the same process (not that it should be required after only 2yrs!). The big issue is separating the valve assy from the cylinder.

    If you can I'd strip the rifle down enough to allow you to hold the cylinder body in a padded vice, then use an appropriate socket (32 or 36mm, can't remember which!) to unscrew the front end. I like to pack the socket out with a bit of ally drinks can to minimise the chance of damaging the finish on the cylinder, while a bit of heat isn't a bad thing beforehand as HW do like to tighten them up far more than necessary...

    Good luck ;)

    Thanks @cloverleaf ! I do not like the idea of doing so, but can I use a large adjustable wrench instead of a socket? I am not sure I can easily find a socket that size.

    Whew...I finally got around to addressing this leaky quickfill valve. I bought the needed o-rings from XTX Air and followed Darrin's helpful "HW100 HW101 Quickfill Service XTX" video here. I wish I could say I found a large flake or two in the way but did not. Regardless it seems servicing those o-rings worked and it is holding air again.

    I did not remove the cylinder. Instead i removed the action from the stock and used wood blocks in my bench vice to clamp onto the cylinder. I used a little heat from a heatgun and a screwdriver shaft through the fill port to remove the quickfill valve from the end of the cylinder. I had also purchased the custom made HW valve removal socket made by XTX Air but was unable to use it since the barrel blocks it and I did not remove the entire cylinder for this service.
