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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    I bought a Weihrauch as have had an ambition to own after airgun for so many years.
    It was second hand, looks in very good order and came with with a pair of gas canisters, decent scope.

    I enjoyed some six weeks or so of trouble free action use once weekly.

    Something has gone wrong. When firing a bullet I get the fssss sound of air dissipation and nothing on the other end.
    I tried a few times and I ended up having to carefully dislodge a few misshapen pellets form the area close to the circular cartridges.

    I have dismantled with care and I can see what looks like a pellet ( at least one ) lodged somewhere along the barrel.
    I am not sure what may cause a pellet to get lodged in this way, but I worry it is possible I may have attempted to fire with pellets the wrong way around - I am very new to this world of air guns.

    So what now? I am down on the south coast, I wonder if I can ask for a recommendation of a local repairs centre. Or should I attempt to dislodge the pellet(s) myself by using a fine pipe cleaner or something like that? Or could this be a false economy, with a risk of me being an amateur further damage in some way to what is not a cheap rifle?

    An HW with gas cannisters?
    HW never did any rifles that took CO2 to the best of my knowledge.
    I think you have been done over!

    Have you got any photos of this rifle?

    As for clearing pellets from the barrel, get some 4mm brass rod if .177 or 5mm if .22, get about one about a metre long. Use this to push the pellets out! Pull the side lever back, remove the magazine and tap the rod gently down the barrel!

    Hi Mark, Welcome along to THE forum, Hope you enjoy your stay with us.atb Paul. You obviously have a lot to learn and this is where the lads on this forum can help you over a few obstacles, I think you may have a HW90k gas ram rifle. As Moley says get some Brass (not steel) rod and tap the pellets out, then give us a little more info on your rifle.
    This one.

    Great - thanks for your welcoming comments.

    4mm brass rod if .177 / yes it is a .177. I will buy one of these.

    The writing on the unit is Weihrauch Sport HW 100

    I am still curious how it may come to be for a pellet to become stuck in a barrel - and a concern if for instance the pellet has been caught by some imperfection in the tubing, that it could re occur easily again.
