Default What have I done now!


Have a new to me old HW80 that has only just been home-tuned and hasn't had near enough pellets through it.

It has pronounced barrel droop - not because it is bent but because the pivot hole in the breech/barrel block appears to have been drilled in slightly the wrong place from new. This means I am having to try an adjustable mount as there isn't enough adjustment on the scope turret and I have no idea if the mount will stand up to springer use.

Plus, I haven't seriously shot a springer in years.

I have only ever had one go at HFT, at the inaugural HFT shoot at Glevum, and that was with a PCP.

Now I have allowed myself to be talked into entering the springer class at the UKAHFT round at Quarry.

Looks like all the makings of a disaster, should be a good laugh though!
