Hi all,

Finally go the venom tuning kit today from BAR and a new replacment breech seal. Well what can I say, it has took me 1 month, loads of hours in the greenhouse, blood, sweat & tears but I finally got the HW77 back together. The difference in action is unbelivable:

BEFORE: TWWWWANNNNNGGGG G G G G
AFTER: phut

I have set it up with some S200T open sights which I grafted onto the Hw77 action with a slight bit of modification. Anyway the results: a very consistent, accurate and fun airgun to shoot with. Take a look at the pictures, you will be amazed with the difference.

Cost me 120 on top of the actual airgun. errr

ISP ReBlack - 50
Tuning Kit - 50
Oils, wax & stains: 10
Sandpaper - 10

My origional plan was to sell it on? But I am not so sure after all of the work I have put into it.... :rolleyes: What price would it be worth if I do decide to sell.

In conclusion a very worthy process and an amazing outcome.
Ian:p:D

Keep it Ian, it's very unlikely that anyone else would appreciate your craftsmanship, when are you starting on the next project?

cant go wrong with that then...dunno how much Venom charge to instal their kit....mines got it....and it's a million times a better gun for it.

oly reason i'm looking for a PCP is so i can shoot and load in confined/prone postions easier!
