I'm thinking about buying this gun for FTS and hunting. Can any owners or people that have shot this gun comment on it?
Same action as the HW95 but with a barrel sleeve and adjustable stock. I had mine lazaglided and it shoots very well although it is .22.
I am very happy with mine and it still comes out of the cabinet every once in a while. If i started to use airguns more then I'd use this one. The extra weight makes the recoil very light and the gun is not at all lively to shoot
When you say barrel sleeve you mean there is a shroud that covers the barrel and screws on some how? I thought it was a thick unitised piece?Originally Posted by Liam
You have the 95 or 98? I don't believe the 98 was made in .22 or maybe I'm wrong?...we can only get the .177 variant in the states.
When you say not at all lively to shoot you mean boring, right?
I'v just got one this week and it's very nice and smooth to shoot. The recoil is minimal and I managed to get pretty good groups straight out of the box. The stock is very good with the stippling giving a very posative and comfortable hold. It is a bit on the heavy side but this dose help keep it on aim. It looks good too
I've never shot one, but a lot of people on this forum rate them very highly.
Do a search.
I wish I was in the land of cotton.
One of the lads at our club has one. I've put a few shots through it and was thoroughly impressed. I would prefer one to any of the other HW springers.
Fabricatum diem, pvnc!
