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.

    'Behaviour

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

Welshname’s .177 Hw95k

    Evening all,

    So after the sale of my HW110 I was after something cheaper and with less “faff” associated with it, i.e a springer. After doing my research I decided that the HW95K was what I fancied.

    Took a while to get my hands on one but saw one used for sale and snapped it up. Arrived a few days ago so I threw a Hawke 6-24x50 on there.

    47F17DE2-3509-4DCB-A660-5BBC2315446C.jpeg

    Some of the keen eyed amongst you may notice the little white cardboard box in the bottom right of the picture. More on that later!

    So as per usual I threw some pellets through it and stuck it on the chronograph. It was shooting a little hot at 12 - 12.4. Quick message to the seller and the rifle has never been apart and he’s only shot a few pellets through it before moving it on.

    As per a lot of the threads I saw it shot quite poorly with recoil all over the place. Expecting this I had already ordered a TbT Pro kit and a replacement seal. Grouping was currently a bit all over the place!

    4C80CA80-6E16-4BB3-9225-39BBD3FFBCBA.jpeg

    This was at 10m in the back garden, picture for reference (obviously the door is normally open when shooting!)

    29FDF777-BBB1-4D74-AFCE-93253EE9FF65.jpeg

    So onto the tear down and Christ what an absolute mess this thing was, grease everywhere, bits missing from the seal, sharp edges on everything. What an absolute dog. No spacers or weights though.

    DB7C6428-DCE9-469D-AF77-2E9CA82D3CBF.jpeg

    So naturally I polished up the piston, removed the piston sleeve as it was catching on the top hat too.

    Unfortunately it was at this point my phone died so no pictures of the reassembly

    So with new guides, top hat, polish, cleaned up, piston extension and a new seal I put it together and threw some pellets down into the garden to see what the grouping was like now.

    27E91FA2-4F87-4E4D-AEE4-3DAC8545D047.jpeg

    What a difference! The one on the right I pulled massively. Unfortunately again though my chrono is now reading closer to 13fpe so a coil or two is coming out. Rifle is dismantled at present awaiting tomorrow to cut the spring down as it’s a bit late now.

    Thanks for reading!

    Thanks.

    Sliced my thumb open and I’m a bit peeved I need to take the spring down but it’s not the end of the world I suppose.

    I just want to sit and sling lead through it for an hour but my brain won’t let me until I’ve got it how I want it.

    Once I’ve sorted the spring the next thing will be the trigger as there’s too much creep.

    Cheers, there’s a relatively shallow scratch on the stock (can be seen in the first picture). Any thoughts on how best to remedy/lessen the mark?

    The paint on my bike is lacquered and when I cover any scratches I use a clear lacquer touch up stick which seems to make the white of the scratch disappear, wonder if something like clear nail lacquer would do the same for scratches on lacquered gun stocks ?... :shrug:
