Things I liked:I have had my .22 cal HW97K synthetic for about 2 months. I love this gun it shoots very consistent with the right pellet. For some reason it loves RWS MEISTERKUGELN pellets. I am using a Hawke Sidewinder 30 Tactical SF 6.5-20x42 with BKL rings. It is a very well made rifle. The bluing and finish are as good as it gets.
Things I would have changed:Maybe the weight this is a heavy gun. Weighing in at 10 to 11 pounds with the scope.
What others should know:Shoot it and get used to it. I shot it through a chronograph with the RWS Meisterkugeln pellet a 14gr pellet. It averaged 722.58 fps with a 10 shot spread of 5.66 fps and a deviant of 1.73.
Things I liked:the gun really feels good in your hand and is right on accurate as the shooter is. after zeroing it in i could hit quarter size spots with it at 30 yards. thats good for me im 66 and a little shakey!
Things I would have changed:i dont know if you could make this gun with the nitro cylinder action or not but would be nice to get away from the spring sound when shooting it. the safety is not in a good location for me . i would prefer it more friendly for a right handed shooter.
What others should know:gun is a little heavy. all said i really enjoy my gun!!
Things I liked:In one word, everything. It has the accuracy I was expecting. All shots can be covered with a dime, with change to spare, and that was right out of the box. The trigger is a dream, very smooth. The pellet loading port is very large and is a good fit for my large fingers. All of the other good things that people have listed also apply.
Things I would have changed:Nothing.
What others should know:It is a heavy gun. I have a 4-16x40 scope installed and it is a total of 10.75 pounds. I find the extra weight helps stabilize the gun against the spring recoil. After a little shooting you actually forget about the extra weight.
