Thought long and hard about posting this, but needs to be done so that people are aware. Several years ago I purchased a non-working HW100 through a club member (no longer comes to club). I had to rebuild it, almost every seal had gone and the stock was a mess. After restoration I purchased an A&M quick fill cylinder. The old HW silencer just touched the cylinder and last week I decided to visit a local RFD (many will be aware of who this is and I should have known better as he does have a rather tarnished reputation) in order to get an adapter for screw on silencers (1/2 inch UNF now standard on HW's). He dug out an adapter and whilst it was a fit to the end of the barrel the grub screw would not hold. He said he could put some thread lock under the adapter to hold it on, and I thought at the time this would be OK as I would not be going back to the old HW slip on silencer.
He then disappeared off into another part of his business premises and was gone for about 20-25 minutes, by which time I became concerned. When he emerged all seemed fine.
A few days later I just happened to be polishing the stock when I noticed some damage to the cylinder which wasn't there before. I recently had the cylinder serviced and it came back fine. Also the gun has been in a cabinet since, so I can only assume it was damaged at the said RFD premises. I haven't gone back to him (no point, it would be denied), but just be aware that whilst you would have no risk buying pellets etc. off the guy IMHO DON't LET HIM TOUCH YOUR AIRGUNS!
