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.

    As per above really.

    Curious about the excellent Weihrauch moderators potential performance on FAC PCPs.

    I'm about to dip a toe into FAC air rifles (teeter tottering between a couple of options, with a 36 FPE Rapid winking at me seductively :rolleyes: ) but I'd like a sense of whether I need to look at more exotic mods, or not, as the case may be.

    Thanks for looking :)

    The only reason I opted for the 'Daystate in house mod' for my Ranger {40ft/lb running 36ft/lb on Bis/mags} was because the sleeve end on the 'HW' left a lip up against the shroud of my rifle. Nevertheless it performed great as expected. No issues with having to strip apart either. I have also tried a Sak, and although its not the one I favour purely because of the extra length it lends itself to, it to worked very well. Be sure to report back with your opinion on 'FAC' air, once your up and running. Love my outfit to bits. Will never be parting with her. KB1 WP_20130823_008.jpg

    I find the HW silencer works even better with a 4th chamber :rolleyes:

    KB, you look pretty sorted with those 2 lovelies:)

    Stevie, I thought the very same as you, and then went out and bought a rimfire. OMG, never know which to take out. lol. The 'fac' ranger is the nuts for long rabbits and lofting woodies. It really gives them a clout, and up to 75yds you can be sure its coming down. I take the 'HW' to work, often. Its great from in the vehicle, due nice and short, and even in .177, it racks up the rabbits and woodies well. And the Rimfire !, well that is just incredible for 100+ yds. Shame about the noise from the round being so fast, but its a lovely gun. If your ever coming down this way, be sure to look me up for a try. KB1 {Si}

    I haven't tried my HW silencer on an FAC rapid but Ive been told by a few mates to stay clear of the HW silencer for FAC power and stick to a Hogun Decimeter, as its better built internally and actually comes into its own at more than 12 ft/ibs power, Ive got both so If my .22 is ever made FAC I will get the barrel screw cut and use the Hogun from my HW.

    Going on the Fact a Hogun can be bought for less than the HW that's where my money would go.

    But Ive shot rapids of my friends on ticket and the silencers he uses made it no louder than a 12 fpe airgun but the Key is Volume.

    I to have heard that the curlers in a HW can deform with higher FAC energies.

    Still the HW would still make a fantastic chassis to fit different internals to :)

    Bear in mind that if you start pushing pellets out in excess of the speed of sound, there will be a crack outside the silencer as the pellet hits stationary air, and the silencer can't do anything about that.

    I used to shoot .22 rimfire and used to have to buy special subsonic ammo when using a silencer for that reason.
