    So, the same action as the old HW50, heavy shrouded barrel, in a classic match stock, with a custom piston for extra stroke?
    Too many airguns!

    I have to agree , the old Supersport rifles are certainly under rated, but really very good .

    A FWB and Fenman has been my reach for rifles over the years. I was really impressed with the Webley Omega stock. Many love the HW Rekord Trigger.

    So a walnut Omega stock, with a Theoben quality of action, with a Rekod trigger might do perfect.
    Has to come in at with 8lbs or under with scope. A sporting rifle for 12ft'lbs.
    Must be in harmony with itself unlike the HW95, which should have been great but somehow isn't always.

    Sounds like a very nice gun and close to what I'm dreaming of myself.
    Maybe a HW99 with a one piece cocking lever set in an omegalike stock would be close?

    So, my thoughts are returning to a Supersport converted to a 25mm rotating piston.
    Kind of a Meteor set in a Supersport action.

    A Mk1 Hw85 screw in end block with a 25mm cylinder/piston set with a 85mm piston stroke sitting in a CS500 or Theoben classic HE stock.

    This rifle is only going to appeal to the sub 12 ft lbs market but with some tweaks like a rotating piston set on bearing, TO6 diana trigger which would be nice so the safety catch is at the rear of the action and a barrel latch like the LGV.

    The only thing left is how to finish off the muzzle ?

    Although do we ever get a rifle that ticks all the boxes That will be the day !

    A crazy thought that hit me the other day is that the Bam B26 is a 25mm HW95 cylinder.
    The B26 has not been at the top of my list, because the two examples I've played with have had problems with both lockup and pivot bolt.
    It would take some work, but probably be quite possible to use a B26 cylinder and piston combined with HW95/98 parts and build a 25mm HW95.

    This thread should be renamed ramblings and pipe dreams

    I had a BAM 95 copy many years ago and it had had some tuning done to it, not sure if it was a 25 or 26mm piston but it had a HW95 barrel and had the Rekord trigger blade conversion and a V-mach tuning kit, it sat in a CS700 stock, so some of the parts are interchangeable.

    Far too many rifles to list now, all mainly British but the odd pesky foreigner has snuck in

    The rifle referred to was originally the B20, imported by SMK and given their designation XS20, it had a 25mm piston.
    Around 2005/6 the piston diameter was increased to 26 mm and had the international designation B26, but SMK still called it the XS20
    There was a version with a thumbhole stock, but a very high comb (too high) being the B26-2.
    However the B26-2 was never imported into the UK in any great numbers.
    They did copy the Rekord trigger but cut corners with the top of thetrigger blade i.e.shaped lobes of metal instead of impressed rollers.
    A good fix was to buy a HW trigger blade then drill its axis hole to 3mm to accomodate the fatter axis pin on the B26.
    In that way, you got the proper 2 stage triggerand a lighter smoother pull.
    Subsequent versions did away with the Rekord copy trigger altogether but still kept the SMK designation of XS20
    My .22 is now17 years old and notwithstanding being made of "monkey metal", can still shoot the nads off a gnat out to 45yds
