    im looking for pictures of your under levers with scopes mounted please,

    Ive got a new HW97kt and need to get a scope for it,

    Ive got a thumb with a cut tendon so i have a hard time loading pellets,

    most scopes ive been wanting over-hang the loading chamber, do yours do this and can you still load ok?

    (ive got a 1322, with a bug-buster mounted, and i end up doing a lot of cursing loading into that little area)

     

    wanting- side wheel focus,  dont care about low # X but high number magnification 

    so im looking for pictures so i can see and comprehend, how much room you have in the loading port

     

    please include scope info

     

    thanks

    Should not be an issue ( tho extreme individual circumstance might well change that. Personally have NO use of right thumb so…. )  if I could find them I've many pictures of LONG scoped  97's used in Field Target.

     Did find an old TX picture and you can almost see just how bummed the shooter is using a under lever and I believe a Bushnell 4200 (?).

     I would'nt think you'll have issue one but personally like a lighter scope to avoid top heavy in a factory 97 stock.

     

     

    Keep us posted.

    Congrats on the new rifle.

    .177 HW97K with Swift 4-12×40 and Sportsmatch one piece mount.

    Scope is 12 1/4" long and does not cover loading port.

    Hope this helps :)

    Loading port is covered on all of these springers, once you do it a few times and get into a rhythm it’s not much of an issue, not sure about with a bum thumb though.  Occasionally I will miss and have to shake the pellet free of chamber. That’s a Hawke sidewinder 3-12×50 on the HW that’s no longer available and I no longer own.

    Lever handles are from Rowanengineering.com as well as the trigger guard and set back trigger on Middle TX200HC

    John,

    I have a Leupold 6.5-20 EFR on my HW97.  It has a 40mm objective and sits in a high, one piece Sportsmatch mount.  The bell covers the loading port but I have no trouble getting my thumb in to seat a pellet.  HOWEVER, upon trying an old Beeman Pell Seat one day I discovered that I was not seating the pellet as well as I thought with my thumb.  With the Pell Seat I could feel the pellet go in just a hair more and align better in the bore.  My accuracy has become slightly more consistent using the Pell Seat and I no longer find tiny specs of lead in the loading port.

    Not sure who makes a tool to seat pellets these days, but if you can find or make something I would recommend it for use in the 97 if your scope covers the loading port and/or you have a bad thumb.

    I'm a slow learner and have not figured out how to post pics to this site yet so if you want to email me at [email protected] I can send you some pics and we can talk more.  Okay, I tried using IMGUR.  Click on this link and see if you can see the pic
