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.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. 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.

    You are breaking the forum rules if there is no comment on a sales or wanted thread by either the buyer or seller. 
    Or regarding to members manufacturing things stating something is going to be discussed and initiated through pm.
    I.e. 
    A buyer in manufactured section hi I’m interested in some work by you pm incoming.
    Or seller in a wanted add, hi I can do that for you pm incoming regarding it.
    Or a normal sale, hi I want to buy your item
    If a manufacturer gets asked privately about a sale they should say to the prospective buyer please comment on my thread to adhere to forum rules.

  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.

Weihrauch New Xlk Silencer

    Today went to buy a Hugget Atom to shorten the length of the Kral NP02.

    The old Weihrauch silencer is 19 cm long and it looks great and works really well, but just fancied something shorter. So before the day got going popped into Ronnie Sunshines who showed me what he said was the new XL Silencer from HW.

    It is so chunky and long too, but then out of the 'behind the counter hat' comes the shorter version marked XLK.

    The XLK is a tad under 4cm wide and 13.5cm long, weighing at a stout 4 oz or so.

    The older HW silencer is 19cm long x 3cm wide and just 2 1/4 oz.

    I've only had time to put one Gamo wadcutter .177 Wadcutter through it and the thing that stands out with this NEW XLK silencer is . . . . I don't remember hearing the hammer spring twang before :shrug::D

    The little extra weight is also noticeable, but I like that :up:. Although the NP02 is good for standing shots as it was, I feel the little extra weight makes for a more stable freehand platform and won't even be noticed rested but will aid stability.

    I don't have any volume comparison data between old and new HW silencers, but will try to find some online.

    But I will find a free sound app and do some sound testing tomorrow and range testing Saturday.

    So there you have it a quick once over of the Weihrauch XLK from the new XL range, which cost about £100.

    Not sure it will be to everyone's taste looks wise, but I kinda like it, though I think the PAO scope will look better with it than the long Richter Optiks scope

    I would have had it to bits by now to see if it was full of hair curlers and scouring pad like the old ones or if they had found something better .

    tried the full size XL side by side with the standard HW silencer saturday at the gun shop in Carphilly on the Kral NP02 is was buying.

    the HW silencer is well known for being quiet, but the difference with the XL on was phenomenal.

    I’ve got the XL version, makes a much deeper tone than a normal HW silencer. Look mega too imo.
