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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    Heres my new .177 99s, its serial number is 2007728 and it has got the new cocking lever.I am really impressed with it so far it shoots with zero twang!Which is a first for a new HW.I used to have a 99 with the roller but I found it hard to cock ,this one is a lot easier.Having owned 2 HW 95's in the past I can honestly say I prefer these to the 95.:up: SAM_1046.jpg

    I was going to get a .22 but went for .177 instead, the .22 is supposed to shoot even nicer.

    Hello Steve I bought it from Brierley guns for £218.I will chrono it tomorrow and I will be happy with about 10.5 FPE.It shoots really nice I tried one at Kinver a while back and that was horrible it twanged like hell but it was dropping the targets.Its also easier to cock with the arm mod and its not jumpy like my old .177 95.

    No it's just standard vanilla. It does twang a bit but this doesn't affect the accuracy. I've kept it in its iron sighted guise and find it incredibly accurate and it comes to the shoulder and cheek very naturally.. It's a good pointer.

    good buy mate....very good rifles. yes the 95,s are a bit jumpy, some still think that the 95 is the better gun, i disagree....99 everytime, im thinking of getting another. might give one in .177 a try as i already have one in .22.

    When I first bought mine I looked up some reviews on the web and they called it a (scrap parts bin gun!) and then I phoned SFS and they basically said they are crap and they don't touch them with a barge pole!So I thought pants I have wasted my money,now all of a sudden they are the bees knees!?!

    Just an underrated rifle that's had to live in the shadows of the more popular HW marks. I bought mine 4 years ago and it's still my fave little garden plinker and I have Hw80, 95k, '97k & 98.

    Yes mate The Year of the horse;) A little update I chronoed it today and its doing 10 FPE and 735 FPS with .177 Superdomes.I am happy with that I think anymore and it would be a bit harsh to shoot, I am going to leave the open sights on it, like Barc says its great just plinking with the irons!

    I'm only getting 11fpe from mine mate, if in the future you would like to do the mod to add more power I can work it out with you via pm or meet up and discuss it!

    It's not costly and doesn't involve anything more than removing the spring, dropping a part in and then rebuilding everything.
