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.

    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.

    Hiya Guys, name here is Fred, just getting back into shooting, and seen a BIG change in the rifles, since I last had a go!!! (My last guns were a West German Original, and a Webley & Scott Senior pistol, about 1980!!)

    Anyway, I am shortly to look at a second-hand Weiratch HW100S, sounds a good deal, is there anything I need to know????
    Any bits I need to look at, closely before I part with my dosh????

    Its just over a year old, no quick-fill facility, and had very little use.....

    All comments appreciated, Thanks, Fred (in Mansfield, Notts)

    Hiya Comp,
    Welcome to the forum.:)
    Like all Weirhauch rifles, the HW100S is a well designed, beautifully engineered piece of kit with - as far as I'm aware - no specific weaknesses.
    Most of the faults any second-hand PCP rifle might have would probably take some time to show up anyway, ie. slowly leaking seals.
    Hopefully your vendor is honest, no doubt you've asked yourself, and them, why they are selling such a highly rated gun:confused:
    Not meaning for any of this to put you off, just wanting you to get the best you can for your hard-earned.:up:
    Hope the deals a goodun:D

    Hiya Davylloyd, thanks for that,.... thats pretty much allong the line I was thinking,.. the guy wont be too keen on me taking the gun for a few days to have it checked at the gunsmiths, I suppose, (unless I cough up, first!!)..... and even Porche must have the odd lemon:),.....It all sounds plausable,... since buying the rifle,.. he works away for ten days, back for a couple, then off for ten more, so it has been stuck in a cupboard,... says he is selling up cos he dont get time to shoot,.. and is including lamping kit, laser sight, optics, pump, etc, at a very good price,... I cant very well meet him in a motorway service station, then start setting up targets on the car park....:D, but dont want to buy a gun with a bent barrel,.. or something that has had all the regulators fiddled with,..... OK will go and see it this weekend,.. and meanwhile, if anyone has any specifics to look out for, will be much appreciated,......
    Thanks a lot, Fred

    Not very well regulated, pellet fussy, crappy magazine that can damage on feeding pellets in as its tight as a duck as*.
    Quite accurate with Air Arms Field pellets in .22 but can't account for the little calibre but sure it will be just as good.
    No quick-fill sounds like an earlier model with no anti-tamper on it which helps if for some reason its WAY below 12ft/lb you can krank it up a little without bothering the gunsmith man/woman.

    I have only used the 1.77 which two of my friends have, and all i can tell you is that is deadly accurate well made and the cocking mechanism a lot better than a Theoben.
    I heard some roumors that in .22 cal some guns have accuracy problems

    True Leeman, my .22 is like a blunderbus some days. Not worth it. Barrel too short I reckon.
