Things I liked:Accuracy is superb, cocking is easy, no harsh recoil and surprisingly quiet .
Things I would have changed:In a perfect world it would have a little more power, not be as heavy and cost less.
What others should know:I'm amazed by the accuracy, especially with such a short barrel. Was a little twangy as most springers are stock. After I Tuned with a vortek kit it made a great gun just about perfect. Smooth shot cycle, not hold sensitive, quiet (easy backyard quiet) and a little more power. I returned an AA510 in favor of this and i don't regret it one bit. This is about half the price and for me personally it consistently out shot the AA510. Only dislike would be the weight but by no means a deal breaker. This is a keeper.
Things I liked:Its a well built solid as a tank quality gun
Things I would have changed:Better scope mount as the dovetails just seem so thin,,but then again the steel is strong and dovetails have been around forever and anything that would knock them loose would damage the scope im sure..
What others should know:There is nothing to add that no one has heard ...the reputation is well deserved so i wont talk about accuracy...the fit,finish and feeling of solid built gun is amazing..yes its heavy but it is solid...i have the .22 and it is a great gun..the stock butt is not solid so i stuffed an old wool sock inside to give it a solid sound and kill any micro vibrations...i used a small band of rubber to kill off a micro vibration from the underlever release button...i run a 2 piece scope mount but bought an extra set of mounts so i run 4 individual mounts so its rock solid...unfortunately i did not have a chronowhen i bought it and never checked velocity..a few days ago i replaced the stock spring with a Vortex pg2 kit and seal...it is true theses guns are simple design and easy to work on..i have zero experiance working on airguns and I easily instilled the new spring kit following youtube videos....i jist chronod it today, though i didnt do accuracy test as i have it set up pretty good with 14.3 CP ultra magnums...well i chronod some pellets today with the Vortex kit....cp ultramag=705 avg......cp pointed=703......gamo rocket bb head=705 ....but 11.9gr RWS hobbies were little rockets with 770fps.....take into account i didnt do accuracy test and gun is sighted for cp ultras which work great for the price but for my 30yrd and closer hunting the rws wud be good for birds or rats...i have gotten 2 squirrell already with the cp ultra mags and it put the smack down..
Things I liked:The accuracy of this HK97 is amazing, out of the box got dime size groups at 25 yards. The fit and finish is as good as my expensive hunting rifles. Love the thunbhe synthetic stock.
Things I would have changed:Wish it could be lighter, hard to shoot free hand because of the weight.
What others should know:Like the fixed barrel design, accuracy is quite a bit better than my Gamo. Price is worth the increased accuracy.
