Things I liked: Good craftsmanship, no surprise here. The Walnut stock looks great and feels good against my face on a cold day, as compare to a synthetic stock. This gun shoots quieter than my RWS 34 and even quieter than my FWB 601 The Trigger is a Match trigger, light and crisp. I left it the way it came. I found it very convenient not having to unscrew the air cylinder to charge it. I just insert a charging probe into the air cylinder to fill it with air. I charged the gun to 200 bars. After 45 shots, the air pressure meter in front of the air cylinder shows 120bar. The yellow zone starts at 100 bars.
Things I would have changed: I wish the wood stock has an adjustable cheek piece, and a rail under the forend of stock so that I can mount a Hand Stop or bipod.
What others should know: I noticed that this barrel is thinner then my old HW100 without barrel shroud, thus I was worry that this gun may not shoot well. It likes JSB Exact Heavy, 5-shot group at 25 meters is 0.15 inch. I shot another 5-shot group, but this time it measure 0.17 inch. This tells me that a heavy thick barrel is not necessary for accuracy. Which leads me to think…Does a heavy barrel guarantee high accuracy? Perhaps a reader here can answer this.
Things I liked: No lead dust, pellets are clean and shinny.
Things I would have changed: Less distortion in the shape of the head. Make then in other head sizes too such as 4.49mm to 4.51mm
What others should know: I was looking for the best ammo for my HW100. This ammo produce the worst 5-shot group at 25 yards, average group size 0.7 inch. Once in a while, it shoots a flyer. This should not happen for an expensive ammo like this. Other brand of ammo I used in test were, JSB, Crosman, Beeman, and RWS.
Things I liked: Finally a case that will cradle your gun like the eggs box that cradles eggs. Excellent method to keep a gun from banging against the inside of the case and rubbing against the foam of the case during movements.
Things I would have changed: The foam in the fore-end needs to be stiffer so that the gun doesn't bang against the side of the case. There needs to be a stiff foam between the trigger and foam in fore-end to provide more support so that the gun doesn't bang against the side of the case.
What others should know: I inserted foam between the gun's trigger and foam in fore-end to provide more support so that the gun doesn't bang against the side of the case.
