    Hi Mike,

    Usually my findings have been similiar to what Weihrauch claim:

    https://weihrauch-sport.de/wp-conten...-HW-100-TK.jpg

    Approx 50 in Carbine and around 110 in full length.

    It does depend on how the rifle is setup though as Iíve had the Carbine do a tad more and also had a Carbine do slightly less.

    Iím guessing itís all down to the regulator pressure as Iíve also had the HW110 do more than there claim but this was down on power so no surprise really.

    As for pellets Iíve always used 4.52 JSB or AA fields in most of my HW100ís over the years.

    There are plenty of tuning options out there though with a different regulator and setup Iíve heard carbines to be over 100 shots now and thereís also higher pressure Air cylinders available (titanium) which would obviously increase the shot count.

    Hi Oldskoolzzz,

    Thank you for your replay...

    I've asked for the shot count information from owners because I have the offer of a Carbine model in a custom stock. I'm quite surprised on the carbine shot count being that low, because a friend has recently purchase a new HW100 Standard length, chronoed at about 11.4ft/lb using JSB Exact .177 452 pellets. We did TWO shot count tests on a 200 Bar charge down to the Green area on the gauge and it retuned 198 and 210 shots and still going strong at that with no sign of pellet drop at 35 yards.

    Regards,

    Mike

    Mike,

    We’re all those shots through the chrono?

    I would be amazed if a standard off the shelf full length in .177 could get that many useable shots

    Even a .22 full length would only do around 140

    To get 198-210 full power shots in .177 I feel it would be buddy bottle territory unless it’s been seriously tuned and modified.

    No out of the box, brand new, not tuned. John put about 50 pellets to lead the barrel and then the shot count two tests.

    Even we were shocked and we'll repeat the test again this weekend.

    IIRC Fluffy a member who I haven't seen on here for a while,

    He totally stripped and reworked his K getting it working at optimum.

    He got nearly full length shot count from the K and I would totally own one if I could do this.
