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.

New Pistol Day..

    Today I received my 2nd order from SWS (Germany), a brand new HW75 :D.. Once again exquisite service from SWS. It arrived securely packed, and the Weihrauch box within was in perfect condition. sealed and unopened from factory (how it should be when purchasing a brand new item). Perfect!. Pellpax and others take note!.

    Opening the box, I was greeted with a brand new lovely HW75. What a lovely pistol, though thought it would of come with fiber optic sight's like my cheaper pistol's the Beeman P17 (hw40) and not so cheap Hw45 blackstar. But the sight's are never the less totally usable, so not a big deal.

    After the mandatory barrel clean, removing all the crud, I put 10 shot's through the chronograph using JSB 8.44 gr 4.52. I had heard the consistency from this pistol was impressive, and boy is it! :eek:

    10 shots

    Average ftlb = 3.06
    Average ftps = 404
    Max ftps = 404
    Min ftlb = 404
    DV = 0
    SV = 0

    This is amazingly consistent results and I am expecting very good results on paper at 10m if I do my part :D..

    SWS have delivered 1st class service yet again, and as for the Hw75, over the moon with it so far!, it will fit into a part of my collection perfect! ;)

    Peace.. :cool:

    I don't think fibre optic sights are admissible in some competitions and at the price of the 75 there are probably not many casual plinkers who buy one.
    Some people prefer an iron sight for accuracy as they have a better defined edge on the fore sight.

    Mine is actually a Beeman P17, Its the same pistol as the HW40 but half the price.. The P17 (Hw40) is a wonderful pistol, very accurate, great to shoot with a very good trigger.. You wont find a better value pistol than the Beeman P17 :cool:..

    SWS doing them for 74.95 EURO plus 17.81 EURO P&P. In uk money thats £83 delivered to your doorstep :thumb:

    SWS are doing the HW40 for 132.95 EURO + P&P = £135.05 delivered to your door..

    I would purchase the Beeman P17 as it the same pistol and 1/2 the price.. :thumb:

    Potentially a daft question from a newbie but I didn’t think you could get mail order to the door on air weapons?. Just getting back into the sport after a loooong lay off and being a bit of a time short busy individual at the moment this could be the answer I’m looking for.

    The law is the law...and it can be a funny thing... and definitely not always sensible.:facepalm:
    ...
    Denmark has unbelievable rules as well.. I've mentioned before, but I'll do it again...:D How i can own a 40+ fpe .177 Airgun, with no licence or anything, but a 3 fpe .22 is requires a licence..
    I can have a compound hunting bow (lethal to, what...100 yard easy) with no licence, but a catapult for fish bait,I need a licence....:facepalm::facepalm:
    ...my head hurts....:facepalm:
