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 im just fairly new to this. Im looking to get a Weihrauch rifle, but im not sure wither to go for a break barrel or a underleaver.
    I know these are fairly heavy guns, and im not sure I want to go down the air route , id rather just stay with springs. I was looking at the HW97K and
    the HW80 s. Im not sure what to go for as I want something with decent power but also something with a good silencer for hunting etc. Any ideas?
    Could someone help me out with some ideas? Cheers, Dave.

    Hi Dave ... and welcome

    You can`t go wrong with any of the Weihrauch springers.
    If I was in your shoes I`d go for the HW95k. They are a brilliant break barrel air rifle and you can buy one with a silencer already fitted :up:

    HW springers - you're spoiled for choice mate. Any of the adult marketed ones would fit the bill.

    You won't go wrong with an HW. Some can be a little twangy out of the box s I'd go for a second hand one - 95 or 98 would be my choice.

    Second hand (if you are lucky) you might be able to buy a setup with rifle, scope and slip etc for around the same price as what a new rifle on its own would cost.
    If you can afford to and buy new and you went for a HW95, a cheap ish Hawke scope, mounts, slip and a tin of pellets should cost about £400.

    Hi and Welcome to the AGF

    Depending on your budget, there are a few German made rifles to choose from,

    Along with Weihrauch, there are also Diana and Walther rifles that are worth a look.

    If I was in the market for buying a new Weihrauch springer, it would be a hard choice between a Hw77SE or Hw98 .177 or .20

    Hi and welcome... your best bet would be to join a local club and get a look and feel of the guns they have, most of all listen to everyone's reasons for buying what they have.. it might help you not waste money.? but if it was me with that choice then under lever as this will be more accurate.

    I have a mint (and i mean mint as in not a single mark on it anywhere) HW95k luxus in .22 that i will be selling shortly if you are interested. There is absolutely no twang and just a gentle nudge to the shoulder, firing crosman premiers at 11.45 (ish). Comes with the standard HW silencer and original box. PM if you are interested (may even have a scope to include)

    ps, Welcome to the forum :up:
