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.

    '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.

    To clear this text box, click on the 'X' in the top right-hand corner.

    Asking them that knows. What's going on here? Bought on a whim but is this correct?
    If not what should it look like?

    Looks like it's been shortened, not factory standard.

    Not quite sure what you're asking tbh..

    I see an-irritatingly-nicer-than-mine HW85k with a non-standard mod - either fitted to the original & modified barrel or a later retro-fitted 95k barrel.. what's it say on the block? How's the mod attached?

    Looks like a 310mm threaded 95/80 barrel with a reflex silencer on it (silencer going back over the barrel and the unf on the silencer being some way inside the body of the silencer)

    Thanks for the opinions all. The barrel is Hull Cartridge with serial number and breech says 85k so I think it's original.
    Measures say 8 3/4 inch. the thread looks a bit home spun.
    Didn't put detail first to avoid pre-empting your views. Can put pics of the muzzle if there's interest. Stock looks factory finish.
    Makes power and feels OK to me. Going to an experienced shooter with it next to get his view.

    A cut down 85k barrel then. Whether the mk1 85 was available as a "k" I'm not sure. I'd hazard a guess at a later 85 barrel retro fitted. @landymick will know this.
    Its a shorty for sure and won't have as nice a shot cycle of the standard mk1 85 but if in nice nick should be a nice rifle

    As most are thinking I would agree its a MK1 HW85 Luxus with a shortened barrel & it looks a tidy one too.

    Can you take a picture without the mod? Or tell us if the mod is direct thread or the thread is further into the mod itself?

    If its the correct barrel the calibre stamp will be a "K" as opposed to the later "C".

    I didn't think they make a mk1 carbine!
    Maybe whack the serial number through the HW database & see what date it comes up with, think they stopped making the earlier 85 in the early-mid 90's.

    Mines full length but easily the best, most mild mannered HW I own, why they stopped making it I can't understand, the 95 although close doesn't quite match it for me.
