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.

    Hello everyone!!

    I am a new member who joined this forum today.
    I am using the forum for all good advice given as i am a newbie to shooting!!
    On saturday i purchased my weihrauch hw97k .177 which instantly fell in love with as it is such a well built bit of kit!! Took all of 10 mins to zero in @ 40 yards pellet on pellet so very easy to set up!! I am looking at good advice on how to keep my gun in prestige condition especially when its been used in wet conditions (stopping the rust)?? how often should i lubricate the moving parts?? + any good info on the gun itself!! Reading some posts left on this weapon people say its to heavy to handle but i think it feels just rite!

    Thankyou for taking the time to read my post & look forward to hearing your advice!!

    many thanks :)chambo25:)

    Hi
    Welcome to the forums.

    If the gun gets really wet (caught out in the rain) you will need to remove the stock otherwise the water sit out of sight and start rusting.
    Just wipe over the metal work with an oily rag, as for what oil to use well that's up to you really.
    If you use silicon oil, use it sparingly and don't let it get in between metal to metal surfaces, any other oil will be fine.
    The moving parts are normally lubricated with molybdenum grease, but i wouldn't bother about that for a year or so. :)

    Clean it!

    I wipe my HW97k over with a oily cloth every time i use it ;). I keep a little cloth sprayed with napier gun oil in a zip lock bag in my gun case. I avoid silicone oils they tend to be far to sticky and from what i've read you should never use them on moving airgun parts unless stated by the manufacturer :)

    Even if you just give it a wipe over with a bit of vegetable oil it better than nothing(just as an emergancy).I know what you mean about zeroing it in really quickly,when i first got mine i had it hitting pellet on pellet (25yrds) in about 3-4 minutes,i couldn't believe how accurate it was.You'll have many a year of enjoyable shooting with the 97.
