HW100T

Postby SP » Thu Nov 30, 2006 8:55 pm

Im looking to get another pcp rifle. Ive been eyeing the HW100T in .22 FAC. Some say its butt ugly, others say its heavy. Well what do you have to say about it? Thanks..

I think it looks pretty cool.

Looks like it would make a nice addition to your collection.

You know SP I think it's a pretty cool looking gun and I like the side lever cocking. It's also suppose to be very consistant. Have you seen this?

I see it as a possible FT gun. Weight then would be helpful as well as shot/shot consistancy. Big minus for me though is no QF. The gun is really designed as a 12 foot-pounder.

But in .22 as a hunter I really don't see a value. For the money you could do better with a Cyclone of Logun Professional or really even a BSA Hornet if you wanted a regulated gun.

I think I have even ruled it out as a starter FT gun. I think I am going with the Logun Solo. I have heard a lot of good things about these guns.
Just my 2 cents :)

Yeah, the only negative thing I heard, is the weight. And having to remove the air-cylinder..
