    HW98.20cal

    My favorite one is myHW98 .20 cal.

    accurate , a little bit of an odd ball .20 cal.

    love the adjustable cheek piece and butt pad. 

    Ah!  I totally forgot about the 98.  You are the first to bring this one up.  That’s a fine looking rig there!

    I would have never guessed this was your favorite Springer! Not with a handle like yours, ever! 😆 

    But seriously, nice gun! Does it come threaded for a LDC like that from the factory?

    I shortened the barrel shroud my self. Shortened 38 mm then used one of their threaded adapters and their moderator.

    more mods to come slowly, TBT stroker tuning kit , Aztec scope .

    My favorite is an hw97 in .177 cal with a lam stock like Brads. I install some goodies to make even more special. It has a Rowan extra set back trigger which I tuned to a light but safe let off. Along with the trigger, I also tuned it with a Maccari spring and guides. I kept the oem piston seal because it gave the best velocities and shooting cycle remained calm compared to the Maccari seal.  It’s my fav because it is so darn accurate plus I had a chance to put it together myself.  

    I just put together an HW50S with Maccari components but have not shot it for accuracy. It shoots smooth and fast so far. Almost feels like a Theoben evolution I have many years ago. It’s in .177 as well. 

    I like AAs too.  Don’t have one now but plan on getting a prosport in .22. 

    TY

    @broozer Did you buy that model like that? With that stock? (if so, where?) or did you do a swaperoo with an HW77? 

    Most interested in your HW50S results.

    22,

    I was looking for a lam other than the blue and found a 77 at AOA. Yes, it’s a switch. I believe AOA might have more. 

    I have the 50 shooting right at 10ftlbs with HN fts and jsb 8.44s.

    Gabe, 

    Both are beautiful rifles!  I should have bought one of those JM stocks when they were on special.  I looked at them hard but decided against it since I had given the 50 to my son.  I have thought about buying a laminated blank and making a stock for my 77.  I have a walnut blank in house now that I thought about using for the 77 also.  I would try and copy the lines of the classic 77 style with the white line spacers too if I went with walnut.

    I got the 50 because of the stock.  I fell in love with the grain. There’s a lot going on especially in the light. 

    I wish I could build one from scratch. Definitely share your work. 

    Here’s the other side

    My favorite Springer is a RWS air King in 22 caliber. It's my favorite because out of all my Springer's I find it to be the most accurate rifle I have had

    As if one side of that 50 wasn't enough, you had to go and show us the other.  Extraordinary!  Is that factory?  Walnut?  I didn't know they made stocks like that.  Beautiful find!

    Lover,

    It’s a JM stock I picked up at air rifle headquarters. Definitely not stock.

    I just finished sighting her in at a modest 10 yards. Just enough to shoot at longer distances and really dial her in. 

     

    5-6 shots off a sketchy stool

    I know this post is about Springer's but my favorite of all is my .20 blue Streak.

    Walther LGU Master Pro .177 european 12ftlbs model with steel match trigger and beech stock.

    From the box, two shots into the ground.

    Scoped with a basic 4×32 single post reticule, 3 shots to zero then it put the next five thro the same hole at 18yards (padded standing rest), pellets Umarex Mosquito  7.40grain  ,48gm  flat head.

     

    That will do for me, until Ive re-scoped it for field target comps.

     

    Proposed mods; reshape the stock to loose weight and the ambidextrous cheek rest, strip and clean, maybe rework the trigger.

    I want to try the 98 in .20cal so much that I may even think about trading my .20cal RX2 for one

    I have an HW97 KTS that is a very nice rifle.  Also an RWS 460 that is excellent for higher power needs.  Overall my favorite would be one of the Walther rifles I have, either the LGU or the LGV as both shoot extremely well and are always consistent.

    Wow, some really beautiful guns and great stories in this post.

    I have owned a few nice springers but my favorite so far has been and still is my current FWB 124D that I made my own stock for. I haven't shot springers for a few months but just last week I got it out along with my RWS52 .177 and did a little shooting. I shoot the FWB so much better. Need to shoot it more.
