HW 50S Ordered
« on: November 18, 2022, 11:33:09 PM »
I blame you guys for all the good reviews of the 50S. Ordered one in .177 from Krale. Iím going to put a Hawke 2-7 AO on it . What height rings/mount do you suggest? Iím thinking medium. Again, you guys forced me into it. "dang" you! :)

Good choice. ;D  Medium or low should work with that scope.  I would recommend checking your cheek weld first.  Whereever you eye lines up should be the right scope height.
Mine loves the JSB/AA 8.44's, hope your does too....

Canít wait to hear a range report and with Kraleís shipping it wonít be a long wait.

How do these generally perform out to 50yds?

I've had mine a couple of weeks now, nice rifle. The first session shooting it was not sure if I was going to like it but it is breaking in quite nicely.

Fine if there is no wind. ;D
Remember though, this is a 12-13 fpe gun, not a 14-16 fpe gun. ;)

Wind will be a big issue past 40 yards.   With a relaxed hold and a lot of practice, you can get better at it.     I use the RWS lockdown mount on all springers.   Weihrachs usually like H+N FTT pellets.

I use medium Sportsmatch on my .177 50s.  A T02C and a T04C.  Be careful as this could become your favorite rifle!

Got the scope mounted,had a little trouble with the BKL mount walking back. Really had to crank the bolts down to stop it. Used some RWS Superdomes to sight in in my basement[about 10 yards]. Have to order some H&N,JSBs to try.

Think about getting a mount with a stop pin.  Sportsmatch make excellent mounts.  So do BLK, but you have to widen the jaws to mount them and then tighten their nuts off. ;D

Got a two piece mount with a stop pin installed. Took all of 5 minutes to re-zero in my short basement range. It's windier than heck outside and cold. Outside shooting on a day to be determined....
