Great shooting. Nice to see an hw97k getting the job done at long distance.

Sorry R,  but this is no HW97k anymore.  This one is specially rebuild for long distance shooting.

As I wrote under this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLKblzTWZ-M :

 

"The LB22 is a ex-HW97 that is totally changed:

 +23Joules, BSA .22 barrel in center of cilinder, short stroke, very light piston, modified spring characteristic, no transferport at all.  Even the trigger is modified."

 

Everything that really matters in a springer has changed. 

This airrifle went from a tearful 45% efficiency to more than 80%.  That's one of the reasons why it barely moves.

So don't run to the shop for a HW97 in .22, because  that German scrap has almost nothing to do with this rifle.?

 

ATB, Leo.
