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.

    Of the two the '80 has the better trigger, nicer firing manners (potential twang out of the box notwithstanding), is more efficient, will probably be more accurate and is cheaper. As Gasman says though; it's really too big for a 12ftlb rifle and the '95 is a better bet ;)

    95 is good but the 80 is superior imo,the 80k is 3.9 kg the 98 is 3.8 kg so won't notice in fact the 80 feels lighter because of the shrouded barrel on the 98.The 95 Luxus & 95 k are listed as 3.4 kg & barrel length of 410 mm each but the Luxus has a mod & the 95 also known as 85 (abroad) has a shorter for end so may not be exact.
    Best bet is to handle them all & see which fits best,though you can fit a custom stock & their different again.

    HW80 for me; yes it's big and heavy but it can be very smooth and virtually recoil-free when firing nicely.

    I found the 98 very heavy until shouldered.then the balance and general hw quality really showed itself! I've found the same with my 97.I find the extra weight helps tame the recoil.choices choices :confused:

    If power is going to be kept below 12 lbft, personaly I consider the 95K as the best option.
    The extra weight of the shrouded 98 has to be experienced in order to be appreciated.

    And btw, the HW85 is an entirely different model to the HW95, the main visual difference being that the rear block of the 85 is the screw on type (like the HW80) and the scope rail is attached on the cylinder (in the older models at least)

    It is only the original HW85 that has the raised scope rail & screw on trigger block.The 85 is still for sale now but it is just a 95 with the MKI style stock,trust me i've got them.

    HW98 or a HW95k with a heavy silencer both with well fitting spring guides to the original spring.
    For Underlevers look at HW97/HW77 or short stroked TX200, guess it depends on what you going to used the gun for.
