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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Have changed the sight on me 'Hw' and applied some illumination for those fast approaching dark winter nights. So looking forward to 'Roland' making an appearance once again, in the hope of harvesting my apples. Things are going to be different this time around. Make my day Punk. :D . How can anyone call the 'Hw100' a pig, I mean just look at her. I love this rifle to bits. If everything else had to go, and I could only keep one. This would be the lady. :up: KB1 View attachment 100477 View attachment 100478 View attachment 100479 View attachment 100480

    Mate, I am so trying to keep cool. I hate hot weather with a passion. I have so many jackets waiting in the wings to keep me comfy on them cold days shooting. Least if your cold, you can put more on. Being hot is just a killer. And believe you me, its been hot down here.

    I totally get the ugly looks thing. I could not agree more. But the 'HW' is just the most complete package that I have ever owned in an air rifle. I took her out yesterday, and set up a zero of 30 yds, then set up a 40 and on to a 50 so as to work out hold over's. Now I know that 'pcp's are known for being accurate with the right pellets, and I wont be shouting anything special in that sector. Mind the groupings could be even better if I could shoot better.

    My point is just the overall feel of the rifle. Its quality from the moment you shoulder it. I like short heavy guns, as I am of large proportions. But this just feels right. The trigger is just so silky and easy to understand. And as for the effort required in cocking, well its a joy. Two fourteen shot mags that just cant go wrong, as they are just so simple. But the best selling point for me, has to be the fact that this rifle is so short and compact. From inside a vehicle as a passenger, its just great to use.

    If only they could make her look like an 'R10'. That would just be the 'dogs rifle' imo. KB1

    Nice set up, I love the HW100 but agree the Germans should stick to the action, the Italians to the stocks, imagine the result! But I do think the thumbhole is a very ergonomic stock, and I think it looks awesome, currently waiting to get mine but having difficulties with postage :(
