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.

    Well it’s only been a year since I’ve had my .20 HW100 full length and I’ve FINALLY managed to shoot it!

    I bought it last winter and the aim was for it to be used as a test gun for titanium cylinders and a new type of in-tube reg. During testing it’s been opened up more times and fiddled with than child’s toy box!

    It’s just about back to standard now, I’ve kept the titanium cylinder but no in-tube reg - just the existing HW one.

    I then left it with Andy to rip through it all now I had settled on what I wanted it to be.

    A day later I get an excitable phone call from @Blackmax to come and collect my rifle. Fresh off the chrono Andy explained that everything was cleaned, polished and correctly lubed. Andy had also sleeved the valve and swapped out the hammer spring with one that is much improved.

    I took the 100 home and promptly did my own chrono test!

    11.38fpe with an extreme spread of 7 across 56 shots!!!!! It had also only used around 25 bar from the cylinder for these shots...

    I then took the 100 to the range, filled it to 200 bar and decided to see how many shots I can get..

    HW state that a standard 100 in full length will do 116 shots.. well I got 190 at the point where the cylinder read 90 bar (I know that the reg is set at 87.5 bar) but I then carried on shooting... I gave up at at 220 shots with a cylinder pressure of 80 bar and I was still getting no changes in point of impact at 30 yards, at all! The sod in me wanted to see how much I could really squeeze out of it but I was running out of time.

    So 220 on the button shots from an almost standard HW100 after it’s had some Andy love - WOW!

    Thank you Andy mate.

    PS - it shoots like a laser too!

    My HW had the same treatment from Blackmax, He turned a great rifle into an incredible rifle. Its be a scourge to the pigeon flocks on the perm, I'm really pleased with it.

    Enjoy your 100 mate, :) sounds like an absolute corker... :thumb:
    TBH, every 100 I've shot have all been good, so if they can be improved as you say, they must be bloody awesome. :D

    Didnt need to hear this @mikey after getting the ultra today. :facepalm: my 100 is destined for a titanium cylinder and neither me or the rifle will be happy until it happens.

    Out of curiosity what happens to the inbuilt standard regulator if you opt for the cylinder with the inbuilt reg? Does it get removed from the gun?
