    Hawke Bubble Level?

    Thanks for the advice lads. It seems the general opinion that these levels are crap, so I don't think I'll bother, John

    HW100 Valuation

    Yes, It's a quick fill version and will probably be rifle only should I sell
  3. Hi all I am thinking of adding the Hawke bubble level to the dovetails of my new HW99s Imp and I was just wondering If any of you guys use or have used a level like this? I have seen many cheaper versions like this Hawke bubble level on the bay of thieves, but have also read some reviews that these cheaper ones do not sit straight on the rails and are therefore useless. Any Info will be greatly appreciated lads, John

    HW100 Valuation

    Thanks for the replies lads
  5. Hi all I'm thinking about selling my .177 HW100s (legal limit) and was just wondering how much It could be worth. I purchased the gun brand new back In 2013 and the gun has never been tampered with or has hardly been used either. In fact I reckon there's been no more than about 2 tins of pellets through It. Also I have never had any Issues with the rifle and the bottle and the stock have never been removed either. I'm just looking for some Idea what this tac driver could be worth, thanks lads
  6. Thanks for the replys and Info lads
  7. Hi, has this happened to you before then with a Hawke scope? I've spoken to a couple of people earlier who both have a lot of experience with shooting and both reckon that the scope Is faulty because they have never heard that rotating a scope can fix zeroing and adjustment Issues, Opinions please
  8. Hi bud Problem sorted. Somebody from another forum suggested (just like you) to move the scope to a different position. When I was having the problem, the up/down adjuster was on the left hand side and the right/left was on top. So this morning I remounted the scope the other way around. The up/down adjuster Is now on top and the left/right adjuster on the left hand side. It was quite evident from the first shot In my small 10 yard back garden that this had sorted the problem. Where as before the shots were all going about 4-5'' to the left, now the shots were only going about 2'' to the right. Plus both adjusters seemed to be working perfectly as well. To cut a long story short I ended up getting most pellets In a 1'' target. Could you please explain how moving the scope/adjuster position can cure the problems that I was getting because I really didn't think that It would make any difference at all. Both adjusters are connected to different parts of the reticule (or are they) so In my mind and other people I've spoken too, they seemed to agree with me (how wrong were we) I am now looking foward to taking my new Imp down to my local permission to see what kind of groups I can get at 25, 35, and 45 yards etc. It has been many years since I have shot a springer so I am really looking forward to the challange, Atb, John
  9. That would probably explain then why the POI was moving upwards when I was adjusting for left/right. Think I'll set up again and move the up/down adjuster and see If the POI will be Left/right
  10. Thanks for the swift reply Si. So are you thinking that the turrets are actually the wrong way around and could be marked up wrong.
  11. Hi all. Can anybody please shed any light on this problem that I am getting with my new Hawke 2-7x32AO Scope. Basically, I've recently bought a new tuned HW99s Imp, and at the same time from a different shop I also bought the Hawke scope. The problem Is that the Hawke just will not group or adjust when fitted to my new rifle. To start with the rifle always seems to shoot about 4-5'' to the left. And when I adjust the left/right adjuster, the point of Impact actually starts to move up as If I'm adjusting the up/down adjuster. It doesn't seem to move right at all. I am using a new set of 2 piece mounts also made by Hawke (1'') I have removed the mounts about 3 times and I keep getting the same result or thereabouts. Luckily though I remembered that I had an old beat up BSA 4x32 scope In my gun bag. So I then proceeded to fit the BSA scope on to my new rifle and used the new Hawke mounts. Bingo, after firing off about 6 shots In my tiny back garden (about 10 yards) I started to get most pellets In a 3/4'' circle. This I did about 6 to 8 times just to make sure that the first couple of shots were not a fluke. Each pellet then proceeded to group nicely. At least the problem doesn't seem to be rifle. I have been shooting for many years and have never had a problem like this before. I have been In contact with Hawke customer services to find out where I stand, but I would prefer to get this annoying problem sorted If possible so any advice will be greatly appreciated, Atb, John. Ps: I took the scope back to the shop where I bought It earlier and the chap put the scope In a V shaped rest. According to him, (to complicate the matter even further) both the turret adjusters were moving as they should
  12. Can't complain about my camera at all. It does what It says on the tin and that's good enough for me
  13. Thanks for the swift reply. The only videos I could find on the tube were reviews on the camera and all of them were good. One chap who did a review I believe used to be a member of this forum but for some reason left, his name was Si Pittaway, Atb, John
  14. Hi all. Although I never got any replies regarding the above query, I just want to let you all know that I have sorted the Issue and the Time/Day and Date are now working on my camera. It worked when I followed the Instructions on my desktop pc. All the other times I had tried and failed were on my mobile phone, so who knows why It didn't work, Atb, John
