Another Airgun for the Collection

I have a trio of air rifles. A TX200, R9, M48 and now a HW80. All in .22 minus the 48.

I got the HW80 yesterday after wanting one for so long. My R9 is a stellar rifle and nothing more than a Weilrach in fancy clothes. So I’m waiting on my scope mount to come this week but I put a hundred rounds or so through it in the basement today. At 20’ it’s one hole with open sights all day long. And it’s a hammer. It shoots very hard. It’s a bit noisy and will benefit from a tear down and tune up with a proper lube job but I’m gonna let it settle in through a tin or two of pellets first. My chrono stopped working so no velocity numbers. I guess I need a new one.

I normally hunt squirrels with a .22LR but now with the rule changes maybe I’ll give it a go with an air rifle. Normally my air guns are paper punches but I do like to shoot vermin.

I wish I had guns like these as a kid!
