Things I liked:The rifle was on backorder quite a while. Now I know why. What a crazy cool machine this thing is. Took me a bit to learn the "Artillery Hold" technique, but worth the effort. Absolutely immaculate out of the box, and I'm a very ruthless old SF guy who is extremely picky. A very nice OOBE indeed.
Things I would have changed:I guess it's just how these S.P. guns have to be engineered, but the one pellet at a time thing is like skydiving through thick honey. Very slow. I'm sure I will learn to enjoy the Zen-like approach to shooting such a rifle.
What others should know:Absolutely stunned about how perfect the rifle arrived. Just flawless.
Things I liked:Fantastic - this is proving to be one of the finest! This HW97K is in .20cal and compares very favorably to my RWS M-48 in .22cal. It likes a variety of pellets, at least (5), so far, of varing grains & shapes, holding "dime size" groups (@ 10 rnds ea. - @ 10 & 20 yds). It chronos very favorably & impressive. The stock is in Beach, I like the weight, very stable!"It is an instrument!"
Things I would have changed:As an "X" military sniper, I'm not too happy with the "cheek-piece", on the stock - I would prefer not to have it (but it can be accomodated). It does have a tendance to "shoot-loose", @ the stock & trigger-guard (maybe a nyloc type screw(s) could be considered). #2 is on me ~ "I didn't think of getting an HW97K sooner"!
What others should know:It would take an awful lot of convincing to get me to trade for a TX200!!! (I've read all of your "Blogs & Articles, on both.)
Things I liked:This rifle is "top of line" in quality and performance. Out of the box it shot centered and just slightly below the bulls eye at 15-20 yards. Worth the price in all ways.
Things I would have changed:At the time of my review - I would NOT change anything.
What others should know:This was my first purchase from PyramydAir. I am very satisfied with with all aspects of this company. The sales person was knowledgeable and provided me with good advice. I was also surprised with how quickly I received my order, (ordered one day and two days later my rifle and pellets arrived). That is good service worth talking about. Buy with confidence!
