    Hi

    I have a HW35e that was venom tuned and blued, The sticker long since gone, Nick was kind enough to send me a couple of stickers free!! I've met him at the Melbourne a few times and can honestly say he's a really decent fella, He does some great work on woodwork too!!

    I found a nice Luxus stock and replaced the Export stock as it had previously been redone and was still tacky, A problem i've come across when i've used old oil

    The gun


    Non clicking nylon roller


    The gun was made in 1970 but has had the O ring conversion, It's very smooth both cocking and firing, It also had shims fitted as I don't believe they were fitted in 1970, It's kept the reblued breech block from suffering the circular scoring!!

    Lovely rifle you have put together there; even the scope matches the style and era.
    Value of a Venom is in the whole package. What it looks like, how it shoots, and does it feel its had custom work done. There is little financial advantage in not telling the truth on the history of a rifle. A modern custom tuned rifle demands the same premium and worth is how nice the rifle is. In real terms what was paid for the work is barely ever returned, at best you get the money back. The return is owning and enjoying the rifle for a while, and that is priceless.
