Things I liked:These pellets are very cosistant and work excelletely in my hw77. Things I would have changed:500 ct tin. screw on lid would be nice. What others should know:This weight pellet has proved very accurate in my gun but as with allair guns you have to experiment to find the right pellet for your air gun.
Things I liked:Everthing. Ease to cock. Can drive tacks with this rifle ( have lit matches at 10 yards ). It bets my favorite .22 hands down for accuracy. BTW I used to shoot competition .22 rimfire and this gun is more accurate. Things I would have changed:. Could save weight if cocking lever was an alloy. A nitro piston underlever would be the ultimate gun. Higher velocities (with a good spring tune or even beter a quality nitro piston) on .22 should be attainable for heavy loads and long shots. I may be speaking out of place but this would give more velocity and should be caried over to the new Hatsan line you carry. What others should know:My gun is a mkI. Had it over 25 years. Sent it in to get a minor repair and tune ( will folow up with review of my tune and changes soon ). My HW77 .22 auto and probably my 25-06 bolt action would be my 3 guns for the Americas. If I could take another it would be a 686 SW 357 mag. If you buy this gun you, and your son, will never be sorry as you will pass it down as with any cherished hunting implement.
