My neighbour is moving and offered me a .22 HW100 with a Hawke Panoramic 4 x 12 scope, 16 inch barrel and Walnut Thumbhole stock with bipod, plus a divers bottle. It's in very good condition. He is not a shooter, but took it as part payment for work that he had done. Compared to my Webley Viper Venom carbine it feels top heavy, but shooting off the bipod would counteract that. I don't need another air rifle, having an FAC Career 707, but he is saying make me an offer and have no idea what it is worth. I would use it for pest control. Any ideas?

I'd second v'man.

Sold mine for 500, literally rifle only, plus HW mod and it was f'kin mint. 177 and mk2 though. Wish I'd never done that. However, it paid for me rapid. The third one damn it. Sod you theoben.

You'll be a damn lucky get to get all that for less that 500. But, as me old man said, if you'd u don't ask you don't get.

It is the full size rifle with16 inch barrel. Just looked again, it is a HW100 Sport with Hull Cartridge on the side. The divers bottle is 7 litre with a 2013 date stamp, so I guess that's the age of the rifle. He's given it to me to try out. It's a lovely bit of kit and might be tempted. If it had been the lighter carbine, I'd have been straight round to the cash machine.

Get him to make the offer, then if it comes within that you are happy to give then you have made yourself a good deal.  The tank is come up for that £45 plus inspection soon.

All the very best

Don`t offer words, offer cash under his nose and politely ask will £500 cash buy it ?

            If it goes to £550 or £600 for a minter and extras - you are laughing.

            So, yes, to the previous advice on price :good:

 

            Good luck.

Same here mate - hold out a monkey in pound notes - if he's after a quick sale because he's moving, you could be a lucky chap :yes:

........ put another 50 in your back pocket, just in case ;)

Good luck :thumbs:

I tried it out yesterday on my garden range. The sights were way off, but zeroed in ok. The illuminated scope is top quality and no mucking about with screwdrivers to adjust windage, etc. Shot 4 magazines worth. Set at 25 yards was putting holes in I could push my little finger through. (small hands!)

 

This morning he came round and said a figure I'm too embarrassed to repeat here. Gave him another £50 for the bottle. The gauge is top quality too. Surplus to requirements really, but will be ideal for my sports ground permission sniping. So there you are, I'm now an HW100 Sport owner. Thanks for the imput guys.
