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.

Question Tuning...Now what kit do i go for...

    Hello everyone.

    For anyone who did'nt know i posted a thread not long ago asking for people's experiencies with either tuning kits, professional tuning or self tuning, reason for this being i'm very new to the workings of air rifles, But wanted to improve my Weihrauch 95 .22 (even if the workings are very simple).

    So after a fantastic amount of helpful advice i wanted to take a hands on approach to improving my rifle, but i wanted to start simple (and cheap) at first so i decided i would install a tuning kit as well a little bit of tinkering if it seemed fit.

    Which brings me to my question people, What tuning kit...? Now to stop this thread being swamped by all kinds of various tuning parts and such i've got two kits in mind the V-Mach and the Welsh Willy.

    So if anyone can give me there experiences with either (or both) kits, Or if anyone can tell me if the kits differ towards what effects they have on the rifle. Oh and would prefer if the rifle in question was a Weihrauch 95 too.

    Your advice would be a massive help.

    Thanks.

    The plus side of getting a Vmach kit is the spring is pre-lubed.

    Vmach do just sel the spring and guides and thats all you really need,

    but if your piston has not got a sleeve fitted, ask Vmach for one of them as well.

    Or go the whole hog and buy the kit, they are well worth it.

    i had the same problem a month ago, after lots of goggling and reading everything came back to welsh willy.

    so for me a welsh willy kit was on order, if you are self tuning you can also polish the cocking slot and cocking shoue and de bur and sharp edges, fit a ptfe liner, and if you want to go that bit extra get the piston buttoned

    thers nothing wrong with the original spring all you need to do is polish the ends. seems a waste to bin it and pay for a new one. all you need is a correctly fitting spring guide and top hat and ptfe piston liner which will cost around £30 posted. another £50 will get you a buttoned piston.
    if you can measure the internal diameter of yout spring I can give you the perfect size for the guide. not to tight to reduce power but a good enough fit to get rid of all the twang. to re grease get a tub of bisley gun grease, its all you need.
