  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.

    Hi all. Sorry if this has been asked before but has anyone fitted a TBT tuning kit to an HW95.

    Of all the kits available the TBT kits seem to get the most praise, certainly from this forum, and I’d like to know how easy they are to fit? Also, which is recommended e.i. the maxi kit or standard tuning kit? I ask about the maxi because my HW95 is all but new, probably only a couple of hundred pellets so far, so do I really need the spring, or does the one in the kit make a difference?

    I’m just looking to make an already fabulous gun just that bit more silky smooth and although not a complete novice at stripping down an air gun, I wouldn’t want to do a bodge job! Any help, thoughts or suggestions please. Cheers.

    Had one in a 95 along with a short stroke kit, made it a very nice rifle indeed

    Mate he’s a mad genius! My Prosport is so smooth with the TbT kit in! Ask him he is usually happy to talk through what you best need and how to do it. @Tinbum

    Strip the gun first and check the spring. My HW30 was virtually new but on inspection the spring was poorly finished and not straight. Tbt springs are nicely finished just requiring slight polish at either end. If your spring is fine the basic kit will improve your rifles shot cycle.
    Make sure you check power to stay safe.

    Im 80% sure that you can get him to fit them and have a service at the same time?

    but fitting them yourself is always good practice!
    or just do what my customers do - try themselves , break it , bring in for repair :smash:

    I've fitted a TBT kit and TBT short stroke to my 95 in 177 and highly recommend it. Stripped it down, cleaned, polished and relubed and can honestly say it's my favourite rifle.

    Found it easy to fit and good experience disassembling the 95 and I had the standard kit when my rifle was 2 months old mate with no problems from the original spring.

    Thanks guys.

    To the OP, it is very unlikely you'll need a new spring. In fact, get a kit without and if you need it I can always send you one. If you have the Hull Cartridge stamp on the breech block/barrel it's a 14mm ID spring and the Pro kit with short stroke and Bum-Slide is the most popular by far!

    I am always available for advice on what to get, and to help when it all goes wrong, but even the most novicey of novices can fit this kit in half an hour or so.

    Just make sure you have access to a chrono:)

    Many thanks for all the comments and especially this one from Tinbum. Thanks too for your thoughts on the spring, as you say I can always order one later. I’ll seek out whether it has the Hull Cartridge stamp and order the appropriate kit. Can’t wait to have a go! Cheers, Mike.

    All my springers have @Tinbum kits. Very easy to install as long as you adopt a methodical approach and they make a world of difference

    I've fitted plenty to 95's.
    I'd go the full kit with a new export spring and a piston seal too.
    Guides will come matched to the spring by Nick and after the last few I've done, I'd replace the seal as a matter of course.

    A tbt kit in any guise is the best money you'll spend on any springer

    If you've never stripped your gun before then take a look at a stripdown video on youtube to get an idea of what it involves.

    Indeed. I was shooting mine at the weekend and the gentleman next to me was shooting a 97K synthetic that sounded twangy. I told him about the Tinbum kit and he wasn't sure, I said have a go on my 95K fitted with the kit.... he was mega impressed. Said if felt better than his unfettled 97K.

    Wish I knew that then wouldn't have had the rifle apart until fitting time!

    I've got one in my PS as well, one of Nicks early ones and still doing well. In fact I've spent most of the afternoon with the PS stripped to every single component part to sort out a little "buzz", the cure was to polish the outside of the spring and regrease. I'm happy now, it's still on the sofa next to me! :D
