Hi all. Just wanted to share my excitement. Ordered a HW98 in .177 from Krale and it shipped this morning. I just hope Iíll evade some of the QC issues seen of late, Iíve been lured by the reputation of excellent accuracy the 98 comes with.I have been struggling a bit with the 77k (.177) and the R9 (.22) lately. I donít think itís the guns, but itíll be nice to chase accuracy with another mistress. CheersA.
I received my HW98 from Krale in October. The cocking arm was interfering with the breech block and needed to be bent slightly. This seems to be a very common problem lately with the HW95 family. Make sure the cocking arm can be wiggled with the barrel closed. If not you will experience barrel droop. Enjoy your new gun and let us know how it goes.
There are two springers in my arsenal I never want to sell.#1:My Beeman R-10 in .20#2: My Weihrauch HW-98 on .177Both are jewels to be had.
Congratulations, she's a beauty! Do you know what scope is going on it yet? I put an Hawke Airmax 4-12x40 on mine. I predict you will have many many hours of enjoyment from her.
How's the spring buzzzz out of the box? Wonderful rifle, heirloom quality. What are you plans for it? Bench, FT, hunt, backyard plinker?
CONGRATS!The adjustability of the cheek riser and the butt plate is a great feature. Once you get it set to your body structure it is an amazing difference.
My plan is mostly bench (the quest for small accurate groups is endless), and I would like to move to FT style shooting. CheersA.
Well you already have the right gun carrier for FT! Since you gun seems very accurate, why not leave it alone? Tune it after the OEM spring breaks. -Y
