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.

    If I can ask, what is the silver finish on the above rifle? If it gets dipped in something like you would if it was nickel plated or chromed, do you keep the plating away from the interiors, e.g. the cylinder, transfer port, barrel, etc, to avoid the extra layer/thickness causing problems?

    The second query is why so many 35s? What is it about the 35 that you like?

    Cheers, I'm just curious.

    Hi Sprog

    I'll answer you second question first, The 35 seems to be an old fashioned design and I love older stuff (More character to me!) It's just a chunky dated design, that's what appeals to me :up:

    As to the silver coloured one, The blueing was so badly worn that it was brown and wholley patinated, Didn't care much for it so I polished it on my old Wolf buffing machine with a view to getting it reblued but I actually liked the bright finish so I didn't bother with the blueing..

    I read on an antique sword forum that oiling bare steel (Of the swords) attracts and holds dust and eventually makes for a grotty finish and that the best way to keep them clean is to use a spray polish such as Mr Sheen or Pledge then buff it off 'til dry, this leaves a microscopic layer of polymers (or polymides- can't remember which!!) that leaves a waterproof barrier but doesn't collect dust, This I did and the gun never rusted!!

    If I took it out in the rain though I always dried it completely and then applied some more spray polish just to make sure!! ;)



    Cheers, John :)

    There must be a notable percentage of shooters who use a springer solely for the experience on firing. I too bought a springer to feel the thump into my shoulder so I know where you're coming from. The various type of pre-charged guns seem too clinical to me.

    Re: the HW35. I know someone who bought one in the early 80s. Last time it was used properly would be by me in the early 90s, since then it's had occasional, sparse use. When I had it, I recall putting 3-1 oil into the transfer port & cylinder for the leather piston seal, and on any bits that moved along with a wipe over with an oily cloth.

    Point of the tale: he got it out last week and blow me, for a mechanism that's seen little to no maintenance, it was as smooth and quiet to cock as you could wish for... amazingly so. I wish my knees where as quiet. :)
