    aa_limited,

    Please let us know your RAW configuration (action, stock, caliber and barrel). If I remember correctly she isn’t a hunter

    my raw is a bm 500 with lrt stock forest green single shot with thimble .177 both lw and poly barrels.
    ​shoots hn ftt 8.6 4.52.  1000 fps super accurate up to 125 yards with these pellets in the poly barrel.

    Thanks…Now I just need to increase my airgun fund…My HM1000X LRT walnut .25 cal with a standard LW barrel is easily a MOA accurate gun. It’s great for the bench or for hunting. It is heavy and long, but most importantly accurate with a punch. The weight and length doesn’t bother me, but it may be an issue for some. I’m 6′ and 220#, but I’m also 68 years old. I love my RAW and would buy it again.

    I’m 180 and 511. my gun is almost 14 pounds with scope. I havethe steel buddle bottle on my gun for xtra weight.
    ​my gun is 177 and zero recoil jump. so  smooth to fire.

    I’m left handed but I ordered my rifle with a right cocking lever.
    its easer to load this way than if I got a left handed lever.

    Interesting… I’m in my right mind too. Most left handed people are more ambidextrous then most right handed people. We’ve grown up in a right handed world🙃

    HotbrassThanks all. I will stick with the LW rifled barrel.
    Would like to see the members RAW rifle pictures on this site.

     

    
Here is my.25 LRT. I have a .22 HMX on order right now also that I’m supplying the wood for the stock.

    “scrane”Thinking about it, the non rifled thimble might aid the pellet to pass over the transfer port without damage .

    
The thing for me is the super easy hand loading of the pellet. I have a 30cal BM500x and the pellets fit tightly into the breach. Mark B showed me his BM500 in 17cal and I was like “so when can I get a thimble!!!!!” lol.

    Not too worried about indexing as I know Martin and Mark B, tune these rifles withing a nats you know what.

Thanks! Air rifles tend to be rather thick, so it is a bit harder to find the correct size. Martin/RAW sends a template and size requirements if a buyer supplied stock is ordered. https://www.nwtimber.com/

    That maple is going to make a nice stock can’t wait to see it done, I almost went with a LRT stock on my HMx .357 but went with a special order Blue Laminate and cut into a Thumbhole stock and if this turns out I’ll be getting a .25 next year with a LRT stock but not sure on color.

    I have not seen the wood in person. I had it directly shipped to RAW. I requested no stipple, and no finish be applied. I wanted to use my own product. 
This one is going to be cut as a thumb-hole stock. I figured with already having a LRT already that I could swap stocks between the .22 and the .25 due to the fact that they are both HMX receivers.

    i shoot polymags out of my HM1000X .25 @890-900fps 1″ groups at 50 meters. thats a high quality pellet, also shoot them out of my edgun (also .25 cal) and they are also accurate. I shoot them out of my taipan veteran short .22 @850 fps and at 35 meters and the group was 1/2″.
