Looks very good that.  What sort of price are we looking at?

Around £170 from what I could find after a quick trawl around, it wants to be good if that is the genuine price.

Fair play mate, I will reiterate, it still wants to be bloody good for that.

I believe that price is for a complete tune as well

£130 for piston and tune isn't to bad then!

its all a bit chasing your tale though by having to up your pre-load and juggle

So save a load of cash,a load of hassle and fit a Vortek kit instead, or better still buy a Walther LGV/LGU apart from the titanium piston, all thats achieved really is to create internals very similar to Walther, without the rotary piston I might add :hmm:

I moved that rifle on shortly after all that work was done to it, brought myself a nice 77k and fitted a £20 tinbum spring guide and top hat set shot just as good and no spring twang and the power is a consistant 11.4 after afew tins , couldnt be happier .

That does not surprise me in the least mate.

it wont be anymore more accurate that a standard 97 shot properly.

 

This 'high end building new parts for shit'... jeeeezzzz. 

 

At the end of the day. Clean it. Shoot it. Nuff said.

Charlie Caller just very kindly fitted a Tinbum drop-in kit into my Pro Sport and with a good fettle, lube and polish internally, he has transformed the rifle into a smoother cocking, smoother shooting, precision-hunting powerhouse with PCP-level precision accuracy at 11.5+ with JSB Heavies 5.52mm.

 

It has to be, now,  one of the very best Pro Sports out there and the whole kit cost all of £25 quid.

 

So how good must these tuning  jobs costing over £100 to £200 must be? For that money I would want nothing less than precision accuracy and smooth-as-silk cocking and firing . :hmm:

All I know is my HW95 tuned by Dave Price (wonkey donkey) is something else . I shot a home tuned 95 before sending mine off and yes it shot nice ,but when mine came back ,it shot totally different than the home tuned  ,
