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.

    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.'

  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.

    As above... I have a webley hawk mk2 which I'm looking to sell, but have no idea how much it's worth... The rifle is totally original with both .177/.22 barrels... It had around 300 pellets put through it around 35yrs ago then was stored...

    How much is she worth?...

    Pictures will speak a thousand words, I thought it was just the Mk1 that came with 2 barrels ?

    I'll take some tomorrow... :)

    It has both barrels and the rifle is stamped 'Webley Hawk mk2'... There's a weird iron sight that detaches to fit both barrels that made me think it was all standard gear... It even has the original scope etc... Barely any marks on the stock... It's damn loud too (I'm used to weirauch silenced air)... I don't own a chrono atm but I put about 10 rws through the .22 barrel and it left neat holes in my ciggy packet... It'll definitely need a strip and seals...

    An interesting little rifle...

    I finally had a chance to get some pics this morning...


    I see that most people like to restore these rifles themselves so, apart from being lubed and wiped with my oily rag daily, it's still the same rifle when it was made... The rifle came apart easily enough but I only have .22 pellets and with my new chrono it averaged 6.1 ft/lbs... I read they should be around 9-10 ft/lb, so not bad for a rifle with 38yr old seals etc...


    I've highlighted the worst marks on the stock via reflection to make them stand out but there isn't any seriously deep scratches or dings... There is also some light rusting on the barrel, which I've highlighted best I can...

    Click to enlarge... :)

    Hi John

    You undo one grub screw on top of the breech block, then break the barrel, then the barrel unscrews out of the breech block.


    All the best Mick

    You'll like this the John.

    I was working on a JCB on a little building site behind an old chap's house and he noticed the pellet tins on my dashboard.

    He asked me if I'd like an old Air rifle he didn't want anymore ? Of course I said yes I would.

    Off he went, and a little while later he emerged from his garage with this :-

    And inside was this :-

    He wouldn't accept any payment for this, he just wanted it gone and was happy for me take it.





    All the best Mick
