    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.

Advice Mk1 Hw100 Quick Fill?

    Hi all
    Just a little advice needed if possible.

    I picked up a decent MK1 HW100 and want to make it quick fill and not have to detach the cylinder to fill up. What is the best option?

    New modem cylinder (do they fit?), flog the old one? Are they worth much selling it on to recoup some money for the new one?

    Get a Quick fill adapter, but which one?

    The cylinder on the rifle is dated 2004, and had been serviced 2016.

    Thanks
    Jon

    Cheers Mikey, That was initial thought. The price Varys for different company’s by a fair amount looking at a few

    Do the MK2 after market cylinders just screw on the same on the MK1’s?

    How old is the cylinder? If you need to replace it (over 10years) then a new cylinder with quick fill might be a good option.

    If you're not in a hurry I may be selling one soon.

    I believe the threads to be the same Jon, I’m sure @Blackmax can confirm either way. Out of all the available cylinder ends I’ve been reliably informed that Ratworks are the ones to go for. I’ve recently bought a couple of their ends myself - very happy with them.

    The cylinder from 2004 and is fine, it was serviced in 2016.
    I’m just weighing up my options. I only sold a cylinder or so long ago when I converted my other 100 to buddy bottle.

    I assume the threads are the same but you know what they say about assumptions!
    If a mk1 cylinder has a little bit of value to it I might just buy a new one and sell the Mk1 cylinder to re coup a little on new?
    I’m putting this one together for my old man so want it decent so he can come shooting with me. We might even join Pete’s

    That’s superb Jon, what a lucky Dad! I think you might be right. For what a cylinder end costs will probably be the same as if you sold the old and bought new. Especially as they tend to come up on the forum and the bay often enough.

    Rat works come in at £50
    Without delivery cost, best fittings are near £80 from memory but that’s the foster fitting one gun end which I’m not keen on. There’s a few others but all in that price bracket.
    What’s a MK1 cylinder worth? I’ve had a little look about can’t can’t seem to put a rough idea on it.

    MK2 cylinders got for upwards of £100 used, I’m not sure in the MK1’s mate but less than MK2’s of course. Like you I’ve never seen one for sale...

    There’s a very decent genuine carbine quickfill cylinder dated 2016 on the bay for £60 mate plus £10 post. That’s a bargain.

    I’d be inclined to buy that one off the bay for Dads gun mate.

    Not sure there'd be much demand for an old non quick fill cylinder as I'd imagine people would upgrade to the mk2 if theirs need replacing but don't know for certain til you try.

    Same thread, just one has a protective metal thread sleeve, the other doesn't.

    I am not sure you would get £80 for the mk1 cylinder....probably nearer £30 or £40. KT Mk2 cylinders sell for around £65 second hand ime.

    I don’t think I’d get £80 for a mk1 cylinder either......If thats in reference to my comment about selling my newer cylinder for £80 that may be what you’ve looked at in the previous posts :thumb:
    I doubt I’d get above £45 for it which is why I was looking at my options. If I’m spending £50 for a quick fill and getting roughly that back that’s practically a new cylinder? That was my thinking anyway...:confused:
