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.

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.

    Hi all i was presented with the above rifle .22 obviously images would be better (i will post them as soon as i can) the guy doesnt really shoot and he had this rifle from another guy i know who did rabbit shoots. He wants £80 but i am not paying that at all from what i think of the condition. i just wanted to know if im looking at a dead horse or something i could get back up and going for a reasonable cost

    anway back to the rifle. have patience im not really gun literate. from what i can describe its poorly.

    it needs rebluing all over, the stock would need to be cleaned up and re-done i would need a new scope as it broken or new iron sights but one thing in particular that is bugging me is that the cylinder (part 2015 in the diagram http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=65399&highlight=hw90) the two holes at the back have elongated and instead of being flat at the back is slightly rounded at those points.

    Bear with me i will show you images ASAP just wanted to see your opinions. I apreciate your time and be as hard on it as you want :)

    like i said i know £80 is way too much for it.

    cheers

    as promised some images they are a little blurred though. the image of the entire gun looks beter than it actualy is lol :) it is in fact pretty dull a bit of surface rust and the stock a bit dented.

    with the arrows point 1 is to show where the hole starts and where the bolts has moved to. 2 how the metal cylinder how its misshaped the back and 3 there is a small bolt in the back which i cannot see on any other HW90 rifles correct me if im wrong.

    I do know that at some point the original buyer did do a/ get the rifles power upped.

    thanks

    MACKA

    Welcome to the forum Macka.

    You have a good make of gun there that has had a lot of use and little care. If you can do the repairs yourself including bushing the cylinder or similar and you have the time, then as a refurb job I would say go for it. If however you will need to have the restoration work carried out for you then you will be better to buy one new or in better condition. Thats my opinion mate.

    welcome mate,looks like its had an over power spring in it for a long time to do that,i would expect that the rest of the internal parts are not too good either by your descripion-save your money as you could probably get better for £80:):up:

    what spring would that be ?(its a gas ram)
    also the bolt at the rear of the action covers the valve which is used to alter the pressure in the ram, personaly i would not buy the gun sounds like a pile of sh£te to me .

    Looks like someone has over pressurised that ram to do that sort of damage to the receiver.

    Or possibly misassembled it at some time then swung on the barrel to attempt the cocking but gave up when a 20 stone bloke exerting all his weight on it wouldn't set the trigger.
