Update on the HW95 tuning
Its been a while…remember this post?
Well Its been on the back burner for a while and I decided I have had the rifle long enough here and should be getting it finished. Specs for the build were exactly as I outlined in the post above except for the transfer port, this was opened to 3.6mm over 3.3mm.
Spring was to spec above, I had to make a fresh guide and tophat for it as its smaller ID than the OEM spring…the result with approx 50mm of preload is 11fpe..so bang on the money. Tested pellets werte Daystate Li’s (Crosman Premiers), Superdomes, Geco and Hobby and RWS Superfield. 10 pellets of each weas pushed thru the gun and then 10 shots over the chrono…10.8 to 11.1 with all of them, highest seen velcity was 11.3fpe and this dropped once the rifle settled with the pellet under test. Recoil is light, very little surge…its actually quite nice to shoot and I will range test it to see how it settles…right now im quite pleased how it came out and for me a blueprint tune is now set.
