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.

  6. 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.

    i am (well am hoping to) be saving up for a new gun, sometime next year. i am very tempted by a weihrauch, as my hunting buddy has gone too.

    he has a HW90, but i see that the HW95k is cheaper.

    what is the difference between the two guns?

    also, i know the 90 is powered by a gas-ram, is the 95 powered by this as well?

    many thanks

    the 95 is spring powered , i have owned both guns and in my opinion
    the 95 is far better, the 90 is really heavy not at all suitable to carry about hunting, i would say even though it has a gas ram fitted the 95 has less recoil than the 90 ,(the 90 has a standard ram, not the latest h.e. system) also the 95 is about 2lbs lighter and as you say a lot less dosh.

    you can now buy the 95 with a silencer already fitted ,go for the new carbine version as its a lot shorter than the standard model.
    all spring guns sound noisy to the person thats firing it as you can hear the spring and piston during the firing cycle , but down range where bugs bunny is the noise will be low.;)

    One thing you're over looking Rockabilly is that the carbine comes without open sights, so a scope would be a must have. Depending on what you're hunting, you can use open sights (Weihrauch sights are very good quality) and still get good results at short range. The standard 95 is fine in legnth if you're shooting out doors, so you might as well go for that. The carbine would be better for something like ratting in confined spaces.

    Yes, saw one in a shop and there are longer rifles out there, the 95 doesn't particularly need a silencer as it's quiet anyway.

    The 90 is a huge cannon designed for 20 ft/lb and can run badly at lower outputs due to the necessarily slower firing cycle. The 95 is far happier at 12 ft/lb and would be my choice. Even Weihrauch's carbines are less than short (do Weihrauch even know that a carbine should be short) so I'd not want the full length model. I've heard some 95's louder than others which could be calibre related (.177 likely to be louder as it generates more pressure behind the pellet). If you can afford one why not consider the HW98. Similar action to the 95 but with a bull barrel and adjustable stock.

    Crackabilly, it's an air gun! Anything over 10 yards away won't hear much. Springers sound loud to fire, but from a 3rd person perspective they're relatively quiet.

    Many people call the HW57 'loud', but I have one, and they're really not.

    The 95 is not quiet with a silencer off! I have a 95 carbine with a hw100 silencer and it is very quiet, the only noise heard is the spring but even that is nothing to worry about as it is very quiet! i took the silencer off when i first got the rifle and i couldnt believe how loud it was!

    If i were you i would deff buy a 95k over a 90, you will be very pleased with it! it is very accurate, light weight and has a very good feel to it!

    Obviously the word 'loud' seems to mean different things to different people so I won't fight it.
