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.

  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.

My Weihrauch Hw77 Mk2 After Paul Chell Did His Magic Work On It.

    Well folks all I can say but WOW!

    Paul as done an amazing job on this tired & a bit worn out rifle of mine, see the before & after photos, & then you can understand why his work is very sought after.

    I went to Paul for the re-blacking service as I’m going to use the rifle in a couple of HFT competitions next year, so I thought I would give it a fresh look.

    However, a friend of mine, asked if I would like an original venom muzzle brake did I ever! Thanks Craig ( craigjohnmaz ), I owe you mate. Craig also serviced the rifle for me some time back, after I got UK Neil to fit & install a v-Mach kit in it many years ago.

    Therefore, I asked Paul if he could maybe fit it for me at the same time, Paul said yes, & he said he had cut away the standard front block what holds the barrel & underlever together as it was all most rock stolid & did not want to come off.

    I asked if he could cut the barrel down an inch or so for me, what he sorted out in no time. Paul then re-did the barrel & underlever & then sorted them out so the venom muzzle brake fitted perfect & boy did he do the job great or what. Paul also fitted the underlever cocking aid for me.

    I also had the compression tube blacked, & the standard yellow writing re-done what makes the rifle really stand out.

    Before:

    Paul test fitting the venom muzzle brake:

    I'm going to buy a nice stock the rifle soon when funds allow, & I might fit the original weihrauch sling from the early 80's too, but on another stock. However not on the underlever... as it looks to good to risk marking it!

    Just ordered one of these too. As Craig's got one & he says they're like the old venom ones :thumb:.

    It's a beauty that mate. I've never seen any of Paul's work look anything less than spot on.

    I'm a big fan of the compression tube getting the blacking treatment too. :thumb:

    All I can say is that his work is better then the standard blacking! its really that good, the photos truly do not show how good his work is.
    I didn't know that you can black the compression tube until Paul asked me if I liked it done or not. But it does indeed look nice.

    Many say after receiving their rifles back from paul that there almost too nice to use for fear of getting them lumped and bumped.

    Either way very nice

    Yeah I felt like that when I fitted the scope! I love the sling what I brought with the rifle way back in the 80's but I don't really want to mark the underlever fitting it :oops:
