    HW45 - Tinbum

    Hi
    Have rebuilt my very old HW45 with much help and advice from Nick and one of his kits. it has turned what was a very jumpy pistol that has been at the back of a drawer for several years into a very nice gun.

    the gun was running at about 2.9 flb with an fps spread of around 25-30 fps into a much smoother pistol running at 4.5 flb with a spread of 10-12 fps after only putting a couple of dozen pellets through it.

    I have fitted one of his kits to my .177 HW95 and was so pleased that I decided to try one on the pistol, will be looking at the old .22 HW35 and .22 HW77

    Thanks again to Nick for his videos and for taking the time to reply to my e-mails.

    Nick's kits are excellent and the personal service delivered is top notch.. And the TbT website is also turning into a nice, comprehensive resource.

    We're lucky to have him amongst us.

    I wonder how many springers around the globe will have now been transformed by his kits?

    Nice one, Nick. May you continue to go from strength to strength and your guides remain true and stiff!

    It has been bonkers since the first lockdown started, but it's well over twenty thousand now.

    My wife would say I own half of those.

    Excellent!

    Although, sadly, some sectors have really struggled, many have thrived. Especially people like your good self offering quality goods backed up with excellent service. Internet and mail order helping, obviously. I guess many home tinkerers will have had more time on their hands to start projects which they may have otherwise struggled to and the excellent value for money of your fine fares make them realistically achievable.

    One of the success stories of modern times and linked in with our wonderful hobby / sport / pastime.

    Nice try Tony, but the website address was put into the forum swear filter the day we started trading. We have never advertised on here and no other airgun related companies are in it, but in a way it makes me feel speshul!

    Thanks, and please don't think I am complaining! We sell up to 600 kits a month worldwide under our own name and now supply some of the "permitted" names as well.
