Things I liked:Quality - craftsmanship, accuracy, in fact there's not much about this rifle that I don't like. This was one of my first ever Air Rifles from back when I lived in the United Kingdom. I got my first HW77K about 19 years ago and I got it second hand - the accuracy of of this thing is amazing. Mine was fitted with a Nikko Sterling 4-12 x 56 Ruby Coated lens telescopic sight and with it, I could hit a soda bottle top every single time anywhere from 10 to 35 yards away - I used to hunt rabbits with mine an consistently got head shots every single time. This is a beast of a rifle with "out of the box" accuracy that's difficult to match.
Things I would have changed:The ONLY two things I would change is to thread the barrel for an airgun silencer (not legal in some states but OK in others) and I would swap out the spring for one of them gas piston systems for slightly smoother operation.
What others should know:If you have the opportunity to get one of these then don't think about it - it's a no brainer, just buy it - you will not be disappointed
Things I liked:Very well built. Hit 8 out of 10 bulls eye right out of the box with open sights. This gun is extremely accurate.
Things I would have changed:Nothing. Maybe add sling swivels.
What others should know:In today's World of poorly made sporting goods. It is refreshing to see this kind of craftmanship.
Things I liked:I bought this gun to accompany my HW97K. As with the HW97K, this gun is extremely accurate. After a few hundreds shots, I've got silver dollar size groupings at 50yrds. Finish is excellent all the way around with no plastic parts. I bought mine in .22 cal. for target and hunting. All the excellent ratings are substantiated.
Things I would have changed:I liked the gold trigger on the HW97K and this one has a silver trigger. And yes, that's being picky. It would also be nice if the manufacturers would find a convenient way to add a sling for a long day of hunting. These are top quality guns but they are heavy.
What others should know:Do try a variety of pellets. I found that the slightly larger diameter pellets fit better and offered more consistant grouping. I found that the Air Arm Falcons worked very well as well as Beemans copperplated pellets. Pyramid Air was very helpful in their suggestions for pellets. Thank you.
