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.

    Here's the trio I've been playing with.

    Top my HW97 originally bought with a Welsh Willy kit - but I found it bit harsh, so we fitted a old spring and guide my mate had hanging around now running at 10.9 with JSB's ridiculously accurate.

    Next HW98 lightened piston and custom Spring running 11.lbs with FTT's. Just as accurate as the 97 but more difficult to be consistent because of the weight, (or lack of), and the 97 has a vmatch trigger.

    Bottom is the HW95 in 0.20 calibre. the leveler Shooting at 10.5lbs. I think it's accurate - but the lack of weight makes it very sensitive. So when I think I can shoot, I have plink with this one just to remind me I have a lot to learn.

    (The 97 is mine. The other 2 are kindly on loan from Jim Tyler)

    Jim Tyler as in, a mod on a different forum and the bloke who writes for airgun world ?

    You must be a twitchy shooter or Jim's rifles are not as subtle in there firing cycle as he has told me they were.

    Yes - that Jim Tyler.

    The 95 is bog standard so don't make any comparison with that one.
    The 98 is lovely to shoot and before I shot the much heavier 97 on a regular basis, I was getting some very good results with it. Somewhere on here Bluefrog posted picture of a 20p sized group of 10 at 35yds.

    Twitchy might be the wrong description (2nd in springer class at the HFT UK open). Just out of practice with the lighter rifle having gained a preference for a weightier gun (+ heavier scope), that's not hold sensitive :Dand has a custom trigger.

    I know what you mean in regards to weight, I shoot best with a Hw77, anything lighter and it all feels abit twitchy, or should I say the rifle floats rather than plants itself.

    Paul James ( . rest him ) used to add weights to his Weihrauch target rifles, as if they weren't heavy enough already.

    Too right. Weight makes such a difference.
    The guy that won the springer at the open shoots a 97 as well, but he's stuffed the butt hollows with lead.
    I got some good advice from Paul when I started. Shame I never got to meet or shoot with him.

    This springer nonsense is getting on my nerves. Airgun World latest edition, Jim Tyler writing about doing your bit article. Every flippin picture is of blokes with springers; they ain't even good looking guns (or blokes). Better watch what I say as he's chief marshal at the AGF forum comps.

    bit of a german theme there. as long as they shave the pits.

    Ive had HW35, Hw77 mk2, Hw80 Mk2, Hw 97K mk1 and now a 45. not tried the the 98 or 90. might do one day if iever feel the need fora not ther springer it'll be another 77 or 200hc had the standard before too.

    theres few more than whiz on my owned list. buth the HWs all weighed more but shot better.

    My standard 95 .177 apart from a Thumbhole CS stock shoots or feels better than my V-Mach 97 in .177 both are accurate but less recoil with the 95 they are both around 11.5 or were when last checked.

    Nice rifles; I know what you mean about the 95. You learn all about hold-sensitivity when you shoot a 95. Mine has a lead slug inside the moderator to hold the front end down a bit, and whilst it works, it only works if you hold the rifle exactly how it likes to be held.

    I've not shot the 95 enough to learn it's favourite embrace yet. I wish i'd kept my .177 cal 95.
    The other two, i shoot much more often. I love the 98, but the 97 just makes stuff fall over when you pull the trigger. :eek:

    My 97's like that. It's a .22, so proof that if you know your rifle .22 is just as accurate.

    Too right. A .22 can be every bit as accurate as a .177, just less forgiving on range finding.

    You mean you HFT boys estimate range, too? That's just showing off!
