    Yes, I'm sure, the HW35 transfer port is about an inch long.

    My 99s had no piston weight fitted...(bought new 2020)

    Did some have them fitted? If so, I wonder how they decided which ones to fit them to...

    As far as I'm aware the HW99 has never had a piston weight fitted as standard. I own two and have assisted in the minor fettling of a couple of other 99s. Not sure if any of them ever had the washer down at the front end of the piston as some HWs reportedly had / have? My guess would still be a "no", though......

    Some excellent information gleaned from the GTA Airgun Forum and Airgun Warriors. Should come in handy for some (and interesting for all springer enthusiasts).

    Apologies if there are any duplications and the information is a little more abbreviated, so no piston weights / transfer port dimensions.

    Guessing also that the differences in stroke lengths shown for the Hatsan 55, 60 and 80 will be down to measuring inaccuracies and that they share the same strokes?

    Not sure what use SCR is on it's own?
    Surely piston weight and acceleration are major factors along with rifle mass

    I agree and there are so many inter-related factors contributing to the efficiency and firing cycle of the springer. As we all know it's all a question of balance. However, the SCR can be a useful indicator in terms of efficiency. For example, the HW77 has a high SCR and is regarded as an efficient power plant. The B2, with its high TP volume as standard, benefits from a raising of the SCR via reducing the transfer port diameter, as Mick (T20) found.

    Please tell me what SCR means in your Bore/Stroke/Swept Volume/TPDxL calculations.

    [QUOTE=brucegill;6226870]Many thanks Mick! Great to have your modded 35 in there too

    Finally worked out how to add tables in HTML so will do the sums for SCR ASAP.

    Have amended the threads title so we can include AA, LGV etc.... If we can get this going it'll be a cracking point of reference.

    If anyone thinks of another column, let me know now as its a PITA to add later [/QUOTE

    Hi Brian

    SCR is the Static Compression Ratio of a springer action, this is the swept volume of the cylinder divided by the volume of the transfer port, normally expressed as XXX/1.



    All the best Mick

    that's the fac version, UK stroke is ~80mm

    I suspect that if Venom used the HW50 piston in their 55, it was as much for the extra spring room as the mass.

    When Weihrauch changed from the Old School 50 to the HW99 they increased the cylinder bore from 25mm to 26mm, they increased the piston stroke from 65mm to 71mm, but more importantly to my search for a suitable piston Weihrauch shortened the transfer port from 26mm to 16mm --- a full 10mm.
    This explains why the HW99 piston is a full 10mm longer than I expected as the internal length of the cylinder is 10mm longer than the Old HW50.

    All the best Mick
    Some excellent information applicable to the "old school" HW50, newer type HW50/99 and HW55 from another thread of Mick's.

    measured my HW90 port at 3.0mm x 11mm
    (it's now 3.2, which is conservative, but gasrams have more preload)

    Has anyone listed the specs for the HW99S? Or have I just missed it?

    Does anyone know whether any changes have been made between the early and later (new) 99's?
    Thanks Rob

    You missed it Rob --- it's in the first post.

    -----------bore-stroke-cc----TP--------TP volume---scr--------piston weight

    HW99s ---26----71---37.7--3x17?------0.120-----314:1------235 - 225 - 225g piston with seal and no
    liner. Add 10g if you leave the weight inside
    the piston


    I'm pretty sure that the transfer port would be nearer to 16mm in length --- My findings are a couple of posts up.

    As per Mick's findings:-

    "Old school" HW50, later variant (but NOT the HW50/99) with the synthetic seal:-

    Bore 25mm, Stroke 65mm. Transfer port 3mm X 25mm. Piston weight 200 - 202 grams.

    Thanks, Mick.
