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 Weihrauch HW100...PCP Newbie Info Required Please!!!

    Hi All,

    I am looking for some advice on a couple of issues regarding the Weihrauch HW100.

    I have only ever owned 1 PCP Rifle (Air Arms TDR) and that was about 8-10 years ago.
    Having recently got back into shooting, with an HW97KT and a good old HW45 Pistol, i am now thinking of re-visiting the PCP route ( getting serious all of a sudden!!)

    I have always loved the look of the HW100 (S or T), but keep coming across ads which state things like 'Anti Tamper', 'Pre Anti Tamper', 'Quick Fill', 'Non Quick Fill'.

    Could somebody please explain to me what these terms mean in reality...i appreciate that 'Quick Fill' & 'Anti Tamper' are self explainitory statements, but i want to know what they mean in terms of buying an HW100...should i be looking for, or avoiding, one type or the other?....if that makes sense.

    If it helps, i would be looking to charge it using a stirrup pump....I can't be doing with divers' bottles, as they would be a pain to carry on my motorbike and unfortunately i can't drive a car!!


    Finally, whilst i'm here, if anybody is looking to sell a .22 HW100 (S or T) and lives anywhere near Gosport, Hants, or better still is willing to post it, please feel free to let me know!!! (ref..'I can't drive').

    Please advise,
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hi Dave and welcome from down Gods-port way, l was born and grew up there :) many moons ago.

    Well, these are good questions if your going down the s/hand route.

    Quickfill - is the quick and easy cylinder filling method via a probe insertion. Instead of removing the bottle to fill it (which you still have the option to do with a quickfill cylinder, with the correct adaptor)

    Anti-tamper - started to be fitted to the newer rifles (a couple of years ago iirc) and is there to prevent easy tampering for the likes of power adjustment etc. Its fine to remove this fitting (altho not straight forward) and then leave it off. Its there purely to cover the manufacturers.

    What will you be using the rifle for ?

    Hope this helps and by the way, Great choice of weapon ;)

    Hi Dave, welcome to THE forum. HW100! Brilliant rifle choice and THE No1 choice of many shooters on this forum, you will not need to worry about AT issues with this gun as it comes from the RFD pre set as a sub 12ftlb rifle. There will be some HW owners along shortly to give you all the info you need. Enjoy your stay with us,atb Paul.

    Hi Dave and welcome along to a great friendly and informative forum. :)

    Great choice with the HW100, you can't go wrong with it mate as I've got 2 (.177 & .22). Not sure if your aware but they're bringing out 2 new stock options, a laminate & synthetic tactical which will be ideal for hunting so now you'll have even more choice.

    I'd definitely go for the QF cylinder option as it's so much easier plus it should be a newer version unless it was swapped with the original non-QF cylinder but I've put a link below to the WOC (Weihrauch owners club forum) which gives the age of the gun based on the serial number.

    Hi dave and welcome,some find the hw100 a tad heavy especially the standard version but you can overcome this by buying a custom cyclinder from a@m custom gunsmiths.

    Hi all,

    Ok thanks for that.

    Makes a lot more sense now. I will definitely be looking out for a quick fill model when the time comes.

    I'll mainly be using it for target shooting and plinking in the back garden, approx 30 metre range.
    As for the weight, i've just bought an HW97K with a 4-12 x 50 scope....and that is heavy!!

    I figured if i couuld get back into shooting with a springer then my accuracy will improve with a lighter PCP.

    Finally, thanks for all the welcome messages...i'm not actually a newbie to the forum, been a member since 2011, i'm just a newbie to wanting an HW100.

    Never been a big poster on forums, tend to read more than write, but started 2 weeks ago and already have 2 successful transactions as a buyer...so hopefully i'll be posting a bit more now.


    Dave

    Hi I have had the full length sporter stock and currently own a HW100 FSB (fullyshrouded barrel) they are great guns but note after using a springer the carbines designated K such as hw100KT have a low shot count if you are not using them solely for hunting. I would advise getting a full length version and fitting a A&M light weight cylinder when funds allow. The wieght saving is well worth the money, you could also like me get a Hw100FSB carbine which will accept the full length A & M cylinder which will give you approx 170 shots in .177 and 180 plus in .22 the only down side is the FSB version is not as quiet without an additional silencer as a full length HW100.:)
