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.

    '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.

    Interested in trying a moderator on my HW97K. Looking for a dedicated HW97 moderator rather than the adapter / any sound moderator option.
    Anyone have one going spare and available?

    The HW97K is .22 calibre.
    Perhaps a sound moderator is pointless on a springer such as this. However, I'd like to test for myself.

    What I am looking for is the Weihrauch HE moderator specifically for the HW97. It screws into the end of the barrel once the end cap is removed.[​IMG]

    @solar - could you please explain your statement:
    Not that rare, each and every 97 has one already built in..

    I do not neccesarily belive that the wider section at the end of the HW97 barrel is a sound moderator (which is what I assume you suggest)- if it were then why does the manufacturer offer a bespoke sound moderator? I'm a novice with air weapons having just obtained my AWC as is neccesary in Scotland these days. Undoubtedly much to learn, and the main factor in joining this forum.
    My rifle experience is from many years ago and mostly with .308 calibre hunting rifles.

    Has anyone used one of these?
    Useful to know how effective or otherwise it is. I have seen a video on YouTube where a test was performed, but always good to hear other opinions where pros and cons are mooted.
    The added length could be a problem at times I can foresee.
    Still keen to obtain one if someone has an unused example lying about. Condition not too important as long as complete.

    Thanks - I had already seen this elsewhere. It is the Weihrauch HE sound moderator which screws into the same threads as the (removed) end cap that I am interested in.

    Seems like there are none of these going unused, unwanted or otherwise available.
    I shall wait until travel to our 'local' dealer becomes both possible and convenient. Will purchase one there - already checked, and they have one in stock.

    All who read - thanks for looking.

    Moderators - please send this post to the graveyard.
    Thank you.

    Hi Buddy,

    I recently purchased a 97k which came with one of these extra silencers fitted.

    It’s in acceptable condition couple of marks as pictured but willing to punt it on if it’s of any interest as it will just sit in my spares cupboard.

    I have no idea on prices as it’s the first one I’ve ever seen let alone owned but I have no use for it.

    I’m thinking £35 posted if it’s any good for you?

    Hello,
    This is exactly what I was looking for. I wasn't particularly bothered about condition as long as it was functional and correct.
    I shall contact you via PM.
    Many thanks.
