      VCR Bill

      Since the introduction of the "latest" VCR bill on 1st October 2007, sales of AIRGUNS (including replicas) AND MAJOR COMPONENTS (barrels, cylinders etc.) by DEALERS is restricted to a face-to-face transaction.   Please ensure you are familiar with the changes brought about due to the VCR act, which may be viewed on the BASC website.   BASC and ACPO have produced a guide to the VCR act in PDF format, which avoids legalese and is very understandable. See HERE.   AirGunForum members must ensure their transactions conform with current legislation before posting.   An inter-dealer network to facilitate the continuation of mail order business is being established by Portland Jon. Details are HERE or direct to his website HERE.

      The forum's EDIT function has been changed. After making your post, you will have 30 minutes to review and edit it. After that, only Admin will be able to make edits.   Should a post NEED to be edited afterwards, email to admin@airgunforum.net the change details, the URL of the thread it applies to and if appropriate, the reason for the change. Don't forget to identify yourself and do use your registered email address to make contact. All this is necessary, as admin must be able to identify who you are and that it is your post that you wish to edit.   Admin. will make the edit if it appears necessary. Note, if you want to change something that could easily be achieved by adding a further post to the thread, you will be expected to do it.   Forum staff generally view new posts added to threads since their last visit. If a "for sale" item has been sold or a wanted item has been obtained, just add a post to the thread and it will usually be noted and the thread title will be edited appropriately. This saves members' time wading through posts that are effectively "dead".   DaveL

HW100 cylinder dust plug

Recommended Posts



My HW100 is bereft of a cylinder dust plug. I ordered a replacement but it is too big in diameter to fit. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement plug that actually fits. I have emailed Weihrauch and awaiting a reply but if you know a distributor in the UK then please let me know.

Cheers Raygun. Found a John Knibbs International. They indeed sell the proper dust plugs. £12.99 if you need one. Mine is on the way!

These are available from a number of places, first 'port of call' (pun intended) that I would suggest is Best Fittings >> http://www.bestfittings.co.uk/


Also, Steve Pope does modified ones, which do not seal themselves into the port, if the inlet valve seal happens to leak.


If a standard dust plug is in place when the inlet valve leaks, it swells the seals on the dust plug exactly the same as the seals lock the filling probe in place when charging.


The only ways to remove the dust probe in that situation, is to either drift or drill the plug out, as it could have up to 200bar holding it fast, that cannot be vented off.
