Things I liked: Accurate right out of the box. I bought it to replace a Diana 34 that I purchased in February. I really liked everything about the 34 except for its weight, which became a problem when firing it while standing. A left shoulder issue made this very painful. One of the great things about the HW 50S is its light weight. On the 34, which has 19 inch barrel, much of the weight is forward, putting more strain on my shoulder. The HW 50S is lighter to start with and its shorter barrel puts far less strain on my shoulder. It is also far easier to cock, something that will grow in importance for this 73 YO shooter. Fortunately, my best friend jumped on my offer to sell him my 34. I also saved some weight by purchasing a UTG Bug Buster 3-12 x 32 scope, which is over 8 ounces lighter than the UTG 3-9 x 40 AO scope on my 34. I highly recommend this combination...its the perfect size for the shorter HW 50S. Kudos to Greg at PA for helping me through this purchase. Great advice.
Things I would have changed: Not a thing.
What others should know: Great rifle. Its not broken in yet but I am already getting 5 shot groups that can be covered with a quarter at 20 yards.
Things I liked: Exceptionally accurate.
Things I would have changed: Nothing comes to mind.
What others should know: My gun is a .22 shooting about 12 FPE. It's not hold sensitive at all ( I do all my shooting from the bench) and it likes every pellet I have tried except the Daisy pointed. To my delight the best pellets so far are the Crosman hollow points from Walmart. I have about 300 pellets through it and I'm shooting 1/4 to 1/2 inch groups at 25 yards. My only gripe is that the stock screws tend to get loose every now and then. I've cleaned them with alcohol and used Loctite and they seem to be holding for now, time will tell. Some say the cocking effort is too high for the power the gun makes, I don't find it hard to cock at all. I also have not experienced any of the galling or scraping some folks complain about. This is an excellent rifle, I highly recommend it.
Things I liked: The rifle is everything I expected from all the reviews. The quality and accuracy met and exceeded expectations.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: It is a stiff rifle to cock at first but once you get use to it, it gets easier and your arm gets stronger. I shot jsb jumbo heavy and crosmsn premiers.177 and both are quite accurate.

Is this model the ambi stock?
Does it come with the delrin insert to protect itself from the galling issue that it is prone to?
Looking to mount a Hawke 3-9x40 mm scope with a Leapers accushot 1 piece mount. Will this setup work for this particular gun? Thx
