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.

    Hi all,
    My first post so bear with please.
    I'm looking to buy a Weihrauch 100.
    Not sure which model to go for as I want to add a larger after market airbottle.
    I would like the longer rifle, T version, but with the laminate (brown/green) stock with the adjustable cheek piece.
    Not sure I can get all the options on the one gun.
    Advise please.

    Welcome John

    Is this the buddy bottle kit that comes with the brown/green laminate stock?

    If you’re looking for a hw100 to convert to a buddy bottle, it wouldn’t matter which variant you purchase

    Just make sure all is functioning correctly, and it’s accurate,

    bear in mind your going to spend circa £450 more for the conversion

    also worth bearing in mind should you decide to move it on that you won’t get back what you’re investing

    personally I would look at rifles designed as bottle guns (plenty to choose from)

    each to their own though

    Yes....but when you can have a side loading rapid equivalent without buying a Raw for under half the price, it’s well worth doing :D. I do have 4 other rapids though so now I’m worried that all my rifles are all turning into rapids :D

    I’m glad I did one of mine.
    Thanks

    I would get the full length bullpup, expensive but worth it.
    I have a laminate100t in Autumn forest brown and black its great. You can still get them in this colour but it is a special order. The laminate stocks do show scratches etc quite badly most of my guns are black synthetic bullpups as no matter how careful you are you will mark a wood/laminate stock if you go hunting especially in the dark.

    Tim, without wishing to derail this thread that is a stonking looking conversion. Who makes the stock, what’s the scope and what’s that silvery sticky out but well forward of the magazine? A few more photos and words, perhaps in a thread of its own, would be much appreciated.

    Good job I have 4 then Steve :D. But it’s not side lever - to get a ‘side lever rapid’ you need to by raw.

    Ah I see - I actiually prefer the original Rapids side "bolt". Wouldn't buy a RAW on principle - aaaah principles, remember the days before the Snowflake generation - when people had those? lol

    I bought a KT in 22 in haste.
    Whilst it's undeniably accurate I'm not keen on 22 unless it's a springer.
    Also the KT stock is a terrible fit, less so the adjustable but I don't get on with the grip.
    Last week I picked up a used sporter rifle length in 177. It felt very good. I offered a swap there and then but there was much sucking of teeth so I walked away.
    Do try both as the KT is quite diminutive in size and specific in fit. The sporter is far roomier and the rifle has the longer cylinder for more shot capacity.
