Recently I've started to get back into spring guns and I'm having some get-to-know-you time with a HW97KT that has had the innards enhanced by its previous owner. Apart from the fact that it had to have half a coil collapsed to teach it some manners, it handles very well. I shot a 30 shot course with it on Sunday using 8.4s, then came back to the zero and plinking range and put a few 7.9s through it. The difference in the firing cycle was immediately apparent, and it will be fed the lighter pellet from now on.
I think were about the same age Rich , I admire you for taking on a boinger ,I would need someone to cock it for me after 5 shots.
