The HW97K is related to one of the first - and finest - underlever field target rifles ever made. Coming from the famed plant in Germany, it's proving to be just as accurate. Even if you're not a field target enthusiast, you'll enjoy shooting this rifle! It's great for metallic silhouettes, plinking, shooting spinners and paper targets, and accurate enough to do some serious hunting. If you're hunting game and eliminating pests, .20 or .22 caliber should be your choice.

The quality of the polishing and bluing on the steel action, barrel and underlever exceeds what you'd normally find on comparably priced firearms. The Monte Carlo stock has a raised cheekpiece, and the beech stock has hand-cut checkering on the pistol grip. The stock is capped with a soft rubber recoil pad to give you ultimate control.

Includes 1" scope rings, medium profile, vertical scope stop in one ring, 2 screws per base & 4 screws per ring cap.

The gold Rekord trigger, which is praised by shooters and admired by competitors, adjusts to your needs. The 11mm grooves in the receiver make it easy to mount a scope (it does not come with open sights). If you like the simplicity and ease of shooting a spring-piston gun, then give the HW97K serious consideration.

Things I liked: All I can say is WOW! ! ! ! The trigger is fantastic. The accuracy is phenomenal. Good safety. The stipling on the stock is perfect to keep a handle on it when carrying it, yet it has a smoothness when fired to move where ever it needs to with the artillary hold. I actually mounted a UTG Bug Buster 3-9X32 scope to it and it performs beyond what I expected. This is the best "springer I have ever shot with. Blueing is great as well.

Things I would have changed: Besides the "moderator" not being baffled. UMMMMMM . . . "cricket sounds" . . . Nothing! It is still a quiet springer air rifle.

What others should know: Clean it before sending a pellet down range. It has shipping oil covering it inside and out and will stick to your hands and smoke / possibly deisel, if not cleaned. Mine smoked on the first shot, then I did the proper thing and cleaned it. I tend to see what a rifle will do "straight out of the box, please don't make the mistake I did and clean it properly before sending the 1st round. Get a good scope for this rifle, it will out-shoot most shooters and most scopes. Run a good 1000 pellets through it before a chrony test, as it will be more accurate, smoother, faster, and quiet, then run a few swabs down the barrel a few times and shoot another 20 or so shots. Very little kick to this springer compared to other springers. If you buy it, you're going to fall in love with it. No, it's not a PCP, but very accurate just the same. The Germans know how to engineer a rifle well!

Things I liked: Wow..6 shoot 3/8 inch ctc at 27 meters the first time I bench rested it with JSB exact. Haven't been able to duplicate it ever since, and just getting 5 shot 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch group at 27 meters. After 1 can of pellet stock HW97 is Quieter than my VORTEK R9 in .177 and 22.

Things I would have changed: Mine have a barrel drop. I use a 2 piece sports match model ATP61 to sight in a Hawke endurance 4x16x50 at 10 meters. I will be ordering a VORTEK kit to tame the minor vibration and make it quieter.

Things I liked: The accuracy is great. The trigger is great, once it is tuned up. The overall ergonomics of the rifle is pretty good, [better than the TX 200]. This rifle is one of the two best spring rifles that I have ever seen, and I am 54 years young. I use this gun for hunting so I got the 22 caliber. Do not let the slower velocity of this gun keep you from buying it. It has plenty of punch for rabbits and squirrels, and a hit at 750 fps. is far more deadly than a miss at 1400 fps. I know because I have tried it.

Things I would have changed: The bluing could be better. The gun is a little thick in the grip. There are no baffles in the suppressor. I really would like a walnut stocked version. I gave this gun a 4 on value for money because of the beech stock.

What others should know: I bought the HW97 after having owned an Air Arms TX200 about 5 years. I shot both guns as they came out of the box until I had a good feel of how they performed so I would have an idea how much they had improved with a tune up.[I am a hobby machinist, so I could make all the parts I needed] I have completely torn down and rebuilt both guns after a lot of research online. The rebuild was delrin guides on spring and compression chamber. Polish spring and stone and polish trigger. After tuning both guns showed less vibration when fired. The triggers had the most improvement with the TX near perfect and the 97 is perfect. Accuracy did not get much better, but both were very good to start with. Comparing the two the TX 200 has perfect bluing and a very nice walnut stock. The HW97 has a better ergonomic feel. To sum it up, I take the HW97 hunting and leave the TX200 in the gun cabinet to show to people. Either one is way better than anything else I have ever seen. Just pick one and love it.
