    yup, which is a great idea 'cos if you don't like it, it's just a barrel swap...
    I'm currently looking for: an old style Parker Hale (not Pax) Pheonix, a .177 mk1 Meteor barrel ( or a whole gun if cheap), and a project Crosman 2200 (or bits). Thanks, JB.

    I have an HW 95 in .20 that is a smooth performer. At first I did not like it as the scope would move off target on firing so I couldn't see the pellet impact point. I opened up the transfer port and reduced the spring length and it made such a difference, a pleasure to shoot and easy to cock. I like them also as they seem much lighter than my previous Weihrauch springers.

    Vmx and the Raider were available in .20 don't know if they still are but the vmx weren't up to much very pellet fussy but I got it out my system on the cheap hw obviously a different thing altogether but I wouldn't go .20 again........probably.

    The scope is history, I converted it to open sights, saves a lot of weight.

    I did have a hw77 in .20, weird little calibre but I do like them. Only trouble I had was getting pellets as my local gun shop never stocked them.

    I have a hw 95 in .20 cal, I got the barrel from RapidNick on here, it has a muzzle weight fitted
    which stops muzzle flip and overall with the power at 11fpe its a very accurate springer.

    The 95 seems to be the popular .20 rifle. I may get a .20 barrel for my hw80

    I may be looking to thin out some kit to put towards a HW100?

    Let me know if your interested?

    All the best,

    Matt

    Wonderful calibre. I have a HW95 and HW80 in .20 and they both perform really well.
    As for gas rams I agree with Matt. The .20 Fenman or Evolutions are great rifle in so many ways. As for the mighty FAC Eliminator in .20-this superb gun is an experience not to be missed once you get used to the firing cycle.
    Pellets-OK not as many varieties as in .177 or .22 but I have found the FAC .20 great with JSB and Crosman Premier. The 12 ft lb rifles are usually OK with FTT or JSB which although heavier are still very well made widely available pellets.
