Maybe not for winning the GP series or being in with a shout at the Worlds but a HW100 in a custom stock got me from C up into AA a few years back.
Barrel = up there with the best
Powerplant = consistent, regulated. Out of the box it is quite temp sensitive and needs degreasing. Also has AT (all bar early ones or modified ones) so limited for adjustment.
Trigger = very good. Ideally would have an adjustable blade (available aftermarket)
Stock = not good for FT. Add-on hamster & adjustable bits or custom stock needed.
Granted if you were buying one and then shelling out for a stock you'd probably be better off just getting a dedicated FT rifle but the HW100 is capable enough.
