Things I liked:I am 49 years old, have been shooting air rifles and BB guns for 42 years.I have been on a journey, I've purchased 3 rifles, two springers, one nitro piston in as many weeks.I was not happy with the trigger in the Benjamin Trail NP 22. I purchased a trigger and it made a big difference. I then purchased a better scope, then I realized I should have spent the $130.00 extra right from the beginning. I spoke to Dan at pyramid and he suggested the Beeman HW97, the other rifles I bought are Christmas presents for my nephews, what a difference, all around. The gun is amazing, accuracy is so good, you realize how ,limited your ability to hold the rifle on target is. I will enjoy trying to shoot as well as this rifle shoots for a few years to come, I'm very happy with this weapon.
Things I would have changed:The only thing I would change is the safety, it's not positioned conveniently,especially if you are wearing gloves, this is being very nit picky, but that's the only thing I would change. I should have spent the extra money on the laminated stock, this gun warrants the investment. I was a little shy on my third attempt, wish I had gotten the laminate stock SS package.
What others should know:This gun likes many different styles of pellets, the other guns I've owned either liked wad cutters, or domes, or pointed, usually not all the shapes, if they are RWS this gun shoots them in the same hole, literally. I have not tested many brands at all, I had many cans of RWS and was very happy with there performance, no need to experiment yet. I have only had the gun for 2 weeks, probably put 600 rounds through it. I have not stretched out the master gunners flat nosed pellets beyond 30 yards, but up to it, they fly very accurately.
Things I liked:WOW is all I can say! A beautiful gun, and very accurate. I've shot less than 500 rounds though it, but it seems to like the JSB Match Diabolo 13.73 gr. 1/4 inch groups at 25 yds and 1/2 groups at 50 yds. I'm sure the gun will do more if the shooter can! I'm very pleased and anxious for the break in. I'm sure it will only get better! I would highly recommend this gun! I put a Hawke Sport EV 4X12X50 IR with Map6a reticles (download the Hawke Arm Chair App, it's great!), with the one piece mount. For me, I think it's a great combination.
Things I would have changed:I love the Walnut stained Beech, but I think the real thing would even be better!
What others should know:This is a heavy gun. It is built very well.
Things I liked:this is my 2nd HW97K, my first one is a blue laminated one which made buy this second ond one because it is the best spring rifle in the market. The only thing I notice is that it is not as accuarate as the blue laminated one, maybe because in this one I put a Leapears UTG 6-24x50 vs a leapers UTG 4-16x50 on the blue one. The 6-24x50 seens to be more dificult to hit the target of a 1.5 inch wide at 25 yards. I think that it may be the scope thta it is hard to zero it. I ordered a 4-16x50 which I like better to see how it work. If anybody have any similar problems with this scope I will like to know about it so do not doubt to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Things I would have changed:on the rifle, nothing at all. on the scope, see some hawke for the best performance of the rifle if you have the money. With the blue one there is no problem hitin a dime at 25 to 30 yards twenty times one shot after another.
What others should know:Great rifle period. Please if anybody has any information on this leapers , please let me know
