    I think every video I have seen so far are all done using pcps. Does anyone video from springer etc? I would consider it but the extra weight on a heavy gun doesn’t sound appealing maybe that’s why it’s not popular.

    The shot cycle and movement make it almost impossible to get a decent video . I’ve tried it and it hasn’t worked well for me . It’s slightly easier with a low recoil rifle ….But a Nitro Piston or A Diana 48-56 type guy ….All you see is vibration and stuff . 
    The SSP type rifles make killer videos tho because they are almost frozen when they shoot . 
    If I ever get another Diana GISS rifle I’m gonna try it again tho

    Hi Joe!

    Good to hear you enjoyed it, I hope that you can do something like it to.
    I have to admit that this was my 5th shot, the other 4 were a bit to low.
    Did read the comend from Leo?:

    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. Result is a light cocking airgun with a very short locktime that wins every 100 meter game in its class when my mate Robbert shoots it.

    Shot with JSB 16grn
    Leupold 25×40
    I had to give the mount almost 1 degree drop to get it in the center of the scope adjustment.
    So
    This is not a standart HW97,
    it is made for longrange benching.

    Regards, Robert.

    Joe,  than we better not show you how beautifull the semi-recoilless version of that gun shoots. 
    It will give you sleepless nights. :)
