  1. Yep, it popped up in front of me at 30m!
  2. Been off work for weeks with a detached biceps tendon, post surgery, arm now strong enough to shoot the 97 with the aid of the rest, first time out for 10 weeks, early morning start, three good rabbits and a hare...

    Catch a bullshitter

    I can absolutely confirm that's total BULLSHIT, as earlier in this topic refer those concerned to the youtube of Ted's Holdover, he shows it slo mo on video, OR just guide the idiot to research a little and there are many threads on why fac airrifle owners restrict their guns to under 950 fps... when air rifle pellets are concerned, above 900 fps accuracy starts to fade, and from 950 up velocity and accuracy are inversely proportional. Fact. I KNOW this to be true from my own gun, HW97K tuned FAC .177
  6. good shooting Mark, your a legend! bloody brilliant!

    Airgun Tuning & Servicing

    Vortek PG2 SHO kit no question better and cheaper than vmach which are over priced and not as high power researched this Extensively for the 97 no question. don't give a xxxx what anyone else says, only the people who've never tried vortek or have v mach themselves say otherwise..... this is my experience, and I've had both.

    I don`t think i`ll ever buy another PCP.

    I've had a Theoben mk11, tuned hot (by me) hit hard. 20. BUT my HW97K nows very accurate and self tuned it's 17 plus ft lbs! way better.... pcps you can keep um. HW tuned to whatever power your allowed, is way more satisfying to 1,tune yourself 2,fire, as opposed to the dead click and hiss 3,way more challenging to shoot accurately, 4,way more rewarding. 5,Totally self contained! I only strip mine occasionally to make tuninig tweaks, no other reason to, as it never goes wrong, look on chambers website, you can buy any part for the 97 down to the smallest trigger part! It's like a good watch! buy a good one and it can always be fixed! I'll finish by saying having owned, rimfires, shotguns, 243,308,270,centre fires, now just shoot targets, pest birds and rabbits with my 97 and it's the best gun and the best shooting I've ever done! ps watched a YouTube video yesterday of the HW100, was gobsmacked at the number of o rings it had AND the amount that will give leaking issues. yep been there done that Spring is King

    Decent bag of bunnies

    Thats awesome guys wish I could be there with you! got room for blue 97 out the back window?! I've always maintained the air rifle is the best rabbit machine! way better than shot guns or rimfires, and here, once again, is the proof!
