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.

    hello

    i was wondering are universal silencers any good. i have a weihrauch hw99s and it dosent have a silencer thread so alternativly i was looking at "slip on" silencers.

    i was wondering are they any good as in are they a nice fit or do they interfere or just are they poor quality.

    i was looking at this one http://www.wighillparkguns.co.uk/products/products_detail.asp?prod=1950

    Anyway anything at all information wise on universal silencerd would be great

    Thanks

    I fitted a slip on silencer on my Hw99s.. Made no difference. The majority of the noise seems to be coming from the action specifically the main spring. Only way of quieting this rifle would be a tune up.

    ok thanks did it make any difference to the performance such as lower the range or make it less accurate?

    I'm no expert mate but i think a tune-up on a springer makes it completely better in nearly every way. You'd be looking at better groupings, better trigger control, quieter shooting, smoother cocking and so on.

    Silencers wont make it less accurate. Some think it makes them more accurate due to defusing the turbulent air behind the pellets skirt but this, I think, is more of a wives tail. They also add a little weight, acting as a muzzle weight, again something that aids accuracy.

    Silencing a springer should give you sound benefits down range as well which is where it counts. You wont here any difference because your ear is right next to the action and away from the muzzle. The air is then being shot down range in the direction of where your quarry is.

    Keep a eye on the sales section, you will sooner or later, be able to pick a slip on silencer for your Hw99, £39.99 is asking to much, i know you can get them a lot less than that. They do make a difference down range by( quite a bit ) as has been mentioned already, theres a test you can do, perhaps i should do a thread on it ?

    i had a b and m mod silencer made for my brand new hw80 many years ago and it was quiter than a normal hw80, but untill i bought a reamer and honer , stripped out all the gronky old grease, cleaned the internals up..rebuilt ... then it was so much smoother, wasnt the twang,and more accurate at 30 yards....* reamer and honer is the sale section if you like the idea of tinkering yourself * i also bought a new spring and piston seal ... so a brand new gun was hmmmm running so much different than out the box, as for slip on silencer i sold a weirauch one in the sales section a month back, + 2 bsa silencers and was asking a tenenr each with postage ;-) keep an eye out mate there is bargains out there
