not been able to test the 97k in .177 till an hour ago cos the neighbour has had the grandkids out in the garden!

 

I did a few bits to it last night and fitted the vortek kit!

 

this is the first test with a scope on... did a full-blown barrel clean last night as it was gunked up!

 

no leading in bar a few aa field last night setting the power!

 

cheap Hawke vantage mil dot scope £85 worth every penny and jsb heavy .52's

 

first 6 shots zeroing

10 in the top shoot n see

4 clicks left and ten I the centre and picked the numbers off!

well happy, I can't shoot a pcp any better :thumbs:

only gripe I've got is I can't find a 7mm key to sort the baffle out cos the spring is twanging a bit!

Why ?

I just felt like I couldn't gel with it mate :no:

It was a nice rifle and, I tried everything with it - sporter stock, standard thumb hole, custom stock, trigger adjustment, standard internals, sleeving, drop in kit, short stroking, different power levels, different zeroes, different pellets - despite putting in a lot of practice time with it, I just never felt confident enough to hunt with it.

This'll be my 3rd TX - these seem to fit me perfectly :yes:

Yeah, best not mate - That user name suits him well :thumbs:

I've gone for .177 in a walnut stock.
..... I've even managed to track down one of my favourite scopes for it - an original MTC Viper SCB.
...... it's been a good day :yes:

It's funny you say that - I haven't got huge hands but, I do like something to grab, wether it's knife handles, gun stocks or women ;) :laugh:


I might try this in the next Black Cat HFT competition if I've got it ready in time.

I've got a few tins of FAPs here, I reckon they'll work a treat :yes:

I can't wait to get this TX sorted and get out with it - I never managed to feel like that about the 97.


I can't knock the 97s though - I had a very quick go on Si's .22 - he's got that shooting very sweet.
