Things I liked: out of the box it hit a fence pole at 40 yards with the open sights, once I got my scope on it ,I ran thru several different pellets at 25 yards. field target specials and jsb exacts were going 875 fps average, but the jsb rs at 7.3 grains were getting up to 950 fps and with dime sized groups. hoping the jsb express 7.9 will come around 900 fps when I get them. that should be just about right for 50 to 75 yard sniper shots on the ground squirrels at my golf course!!
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: the hw80 is a more powerful springer and hold is everything, so get that artillery hold down and keep your eyes on the target with the follow through
