    On a 20 shot string with AA 8.44's,here is what I recorded:

    High: 777

    Low:766

    Average:771

    E.S. :11

    S.D. : 3

    11.14 ft lbs

      I have about 275 pellets through it so far. Upon delivery I disassembled and cleaned it up,polished the spring ends and the washer on the end of the guide,added some moly and a few dabs of Red & Tacky grease. (Didn't remove the piston.) Also worked on the trigger a touch and added a Small amount of moly. Cleaned and loc-tited the stock screws (blue) as well.Pretty happy with the resulting numbers…and it is still breaking in!

    Ideal power level for a springer IMHO.

    Just checked the weight on the hw50 and it is 2 pounds lighter than my hw97k without scope.  I’m tempted.

    Intenseaty..I did some shooting yesterday after work at 25 yds and the wind was awful. By timing between gusts and helped by the trees I was able to keep groups around 1/2 in or less for the most part. This was with AA 8.44's. So far it seems to like these best followed by Crosman gold tips (metal mag knock-offs) and H&N hunter extremes. Those Crosmans shoot well in my Pro Sport,as well. Ya just never know. JSB heavies are ok as are Barracudas. Like I said,the winds were bad so I'll play around a bit more this evening…and take some actual pics!

    EMrider, I chose the 50 over the 95 based on several recommendations. I know the whole "Brand new gun syndrome" may come into play here,but I've been through it enough to know what I REALLY like! Back in the late 70's or early 80's,I truthfully would have looked right past this rifle due to it's "low power". Funny how things change as we get older (and Hopefully wiser!). Sure is a lot more enjoyable to hit what I aim at with such low effort…and not having my fillings jarred loose in the process!

    Hi Mrscottleaman , i own the hw50 in .177. And frankly it my most favorite gun in my airgun collection . The power is just right for plinking and pesting in the back yard . I shot it so much with a little over a year , i broke the spring . AOA rebuilt it for me . They put in a vortek kit . Its shooting wonderfly . Ammo is crosman chp and jsb 8.44 and 10.3 s  dont evan have to adjust the scope . Hawke vantage 2-7x 32 . Perfect for the gun.i hope you shoot the hell out of it .

    Scott I’m going to ask a dumb question. What does polishing the spring ends accomplish? I’ve seen a few posts mentioning this and always wondered why.

    It allows more fluid rotational movement of the spring and helps to eliminate "torquing" of the rifle upon discharge…to a greater or lesser degree depending on the particular gun and it's state of tune. I had the 50 apart to inspect the piston seal,clean up the factory grease and do some de-burring so I simply polished the spring ends while I had it apart. Figured it couldnt hurt.

                         Mike S. Leeman. (LOL!)
