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.

    Evening all.

    Just got my HW77K out to have a plink in the garden. I'm wanting to purchase a new gun so just getting back into the swing of things. Yet after every shot an awful smell and smoke comes from the barrel. I'm pretty sure it's oil smoke? Yet I have no idea why it's coming out as I've never stripped my gun or done any maintainance as it's only been shot a few times.

    Thanks zak

    It's dieseling, I've had the same today, must just be oil/grease passing the seals, it should clear after several shots.

    Its called dieseling mate, your gun is burning off the excess lubricant. Hopefully after putting a number of pellets through it it should clear up. If not a strip maybe in order.

    If it's been sitting for a while it may be down to the piston seal, keep an eye on it an if it doesn't go after a few shots invest in another.

    It's done this everytime I've shot, so I think I'll be taking it to a shop. Is it expensive for new seals? I wouldn't feel comfortable stripping my gun incase I misplaced something.

    Cheers

    Strip it yourself mate! It's quite a easy gun to work on, I had one for years and was always Fettling it up, I ended up putting a Chambers tuning kit in it and what a difference that made!!!! Your gun is burning off old oil! Put a couple O' hundred pellets through it and it may clear it, Plenty of lads on here to help you!!!!

    dieseling could very likely put your gun over the 12 ft/lb limit also

    Dieseling should in theory settle itself eventually. If you gun is new and under warranty by all means bring it back to the shop. However I'm going to guess that they will tell you the same and come back after another 500 shots (for example). They should also chrono it while you are there (if they had not done it before selling it to you) in case it is over-powered.

    If you bought it secondhand, then it might need a strip and relube as others has mentioned, as the previous owner may have been over zealous with lubrication. There should be plenty of strip-down guide for HW rifles around. Just make sure you have all the tools and understand what you are doing if you decide to go down that route!

    Good luck!

    Nice reply so if he takes to a shop they can keep and charge what they see fit to sort for a polish and degrease be cheaper to buy a chrono and sort your self

    if he lived nearer he could use my master chrono with pleasure.
    I'd even sort the dieseling for him.
    aren't there any members local to Sheffield that would give him a hand.

    I've watched a few videos and decided to give it a crack on my own. Being an engineer I should be good at these things ha. Quick question. Best place to get tools? Hammer, punches and such. Also best online shop for seals and maybe even a spring set.

    Thanks guys.

    Screwfix for tools...

    ...consider Woodfield/WelshWilly for seals and springs.
