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.

    Debating investing in a silencer for my Hw99s. Obviously I understand a silencer will never take away the TWANG of a spring powered air rifle (luckily she has next to no twang when she fires) but will this be a good idea? It's my understanding that a silencer also helps to direct any noise that does occur, directly at the prey you're shooting, by which time it's too late for bugs bunny to even realise what's going on because he's just taken a superdome to the head and his friend next to him will be totally oblivious as to why his friend just dropped like a sack of..
    Will also be good for plinking in the back garden as whilst I've had no complaints yet, I'm sure the noise will start to annoy the neighbours.
    Does anyone know of any decent silencers for my rifle? Will most likely have to be a slide on one.

    Many thanks,

    Ryan

    go 30 yards downrage and have someone fire the gun , you should realise the noise your hearing is the piston moving forward at incredible rates inches away from your face.

    I have a silencer on my hatsan and I can't tell the difference,just makes it easier to cock,if you still want one,not much matches a weihrauch silencer.

    hello, if you can take the front sight off and can put a silencer over the groove like a slip on jobby just measure barrel diameter and get matt 975 off the forum to make a delrin MWSS for you. details bottom of forum page, .177 or .22 let him know. as good as a HW mod and cheaper.

    Or weihrauch do one thats specifically disigned for the 99s where you can put the sight back on with the silencer
    Forget that they dont.. i could have sworn i saw one for the front sight....
    The push on one may allow you to use the forsight if you wish...

    Tuned rifles = silencer
    Untuned rifle = no silencer, or if you like the noise of the spring add a silencer

    As to silencers, get the barrel screwcut, will give you better options. Silencers makes,

    In my personal order of performance:

    Swifts
    Weihrauch/air arms/Hogan decimeter
    UK Neil

    Range right solutions do a multi-fit silencer : 14.3-18mm barrels for .177 & .22 grips the barrel tightly with no grub screw marks. View attachment 94400

    I fit PHUTT BOXES to my diana side leavers as I find big improvements in d b loss.
    Few of my others it has decent effect too but some not so.
    Tried swift but replaced innards for better effect made a big diff,I prefer Hogan decimeater ,easily stripped to clean out or play with chambers.

    Got a few brass and alloy custom typed steel too but If their not too quiet I usually copy Hogan internals for better effect.

    Can't remember if their 3 or 4 chamber without looking.
    Either way I hope what you get has good effect I know where you come from 're noise n neighbours.
    It can put them off going in the garden then the moans start.
    Silent targets,quieter action ,no muzzle crack.
    Let us know how it goes.

    You will notice a difference, OP. It's true that a large part of an untuned springer's noise comes from the internals but there is a muzzle crack as well, which a good moderator will suppress well. I have a Mattw custom moderator on my mk1 HW97 and it's made a hell of a difference. I can still hear the action, although due to being tuned it's much softer than it used to be, but even so, if you take the moderator off the muzzle crack, particularly when in front of the rifle, is much more pronounced without it.

    Yeah, I think I've landed pretty lucky with my rifle because there doesn't seem to be too much noise internal wise. A lot of people said springers can be rather twangy upon purchase and without tuning them. Hopefully in the long run when I get her tuned, that along with the suppressor will make her quiet as a mouse. Last thing I want to do is scare the vicar next door! Haha

    Mattw made a slip-on silencer for my Gamo Socom which I'm very pleased with. There's photos of it on the gun in my profile/album.

    Haven't heard a bad review on a single one of his suppressors yet so I can't wait to get my hands on it!

    I've had 3,
    Small one was good, other 2 mws200 weren't brilliant, especially for the size/price. I had one causing spiraling also.

    I choose not to post this at the time
