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.

    So yesterday I had a nice package arrive in the post from Tinbum, unfortunately didn't have any moly to hand so had to wait till today to get the gun stripped and fitted with my new TbT Full Drop-in Kit. Absolutely fantastic piece of work if I do say so myself. Rifle barely makes a noise now and has next to no kick at all. Here's a quick review I did of it!

    Thanks again Nick!:up::up::up:

    I was going to get one for my hw97 but when I stripped it, it already had them fitted(that's why I did not get one "tinners") . Very good simple idea to improve your springer and very good value for money imho . Nice vid Ryan , make sure Tinbum sorts you out with some royalties ;) , atb , rich.

    Thanks Rich.
    Yeah definitely is value for money. Can't fault it as yet. Only have a pop bottle as my piston sleeve at the moment, might invest in some ptfe 1mm sheet at some point instead

    I think I've got a customising bug or something now. I need something to do with it next. Wether it be cosmetic or tuning.

    Thanks Ryan. I was all set to sell my 99 this morning, but your enthusiasm has rubbed off and I've decided to sell my hw80 instead!

    I've dug out the 99's open sights and I'm going 100 yard can hunting on Monday!:D

    Hi Ryan out of interest how is the MWSS mod fitted. Is the barrel screw cut or is it slip on?

    close up/more pictures would be excellent

    thanks and ATB Dave

    Been in love with it since I got it around a month ago Nick, even more so now it's tuned. It's my first rifle although I've shot plenty of others. It's definitely going to stay in my possession for years to come. They're cracking pieces of kit!

    Mines slip on Dave. But matt does any kind of fit you're after!

    I love mine. Ive had it around 3 weeks now. I also got one of tinbums kits in and a full polish/relube/sleeve.

    I finaly took it ratting last night. Proved its self for 15yards no issues at all. I dont use a moderator as i dont find the rifle loud at all. Only issues i have found so far are comftable scope mounting and being able to see the front mount in my scope. I think i might go back to the irons to be honest. I can get pound coin size groups with them at 20 yards so would will make a good short range hunter.

    Great vid mate glad your happy with your 99.I lot of people say the 95 is better but out of the two I prefer the 99.I would recommend fitting a Rowen extra setback trigger it makes a lot of difference if you haven't got hands like a Yeti. View attachment 95467 This is mine I have took off the open sights and put an old muzzle weight off a SMK on it.I have also detuned it to 9ish foot pounds to make it shoot smoother.

    It's definitely going to last me a while. Might start putting money aside each month when I start basic training for a PCP (probably a hw100) as well though. But I'll definitely have fun out of Gertrude for years to come!

    I got busy with the angle grinder! I don't think your allowed to talk about power adjustments on here (up or down).I think in .177 it is straining a bit over 10 FPE, I recently shot a .22 and it struck me how much smoother it was then my .177.

    Is it simple to swap out the stock trigger for the extra set back and do you buy yours direct from source?

    Hello Ryan,Fitting the set back trigger is a bit fiddly but not too hard to do.You just need to make or buy the right diameter punch(I made one out of a panel pin nail) Its just a matter of knocking out a pin and replacing the adjuster screw,any if you get stuck do a thread and somebody will help you out.

    I bought mine direct from Rowan engineering they are a great company to deal with mate. ATB Micah

    Nothing can be as fiddly as taking the four blocks out when fitting a tuning kit so I'll take my chances haha. Hopefully they're as good as everyone seems to make out! Need to work out what to modify next after that because I've been bitten by the bug.

    Be careful the pins not knurled.You can only knock it out one way if it .I also drilled a small hole in a block of wood to support the trigger housing as I knocked out the pin.I remember the last one I did being very tight so when I put it back in the new trigger I squeezed it in with some mole grips.Good Luck!

    Both sides were slightly knurled. In the end I got a pair of long nose pliers when one side was poking out slightly and used them to nip the knurled parts off. Hey presto, light tap and the pin popped straight out. [​IMG]

    Now all my proper gunsmith tools have arrived. I invested in a toolbox to keep them and all my spares in as well. [​IMG]
