Old Post.  But op what power level is your 97k?

Iove my 97k and it's super accurate but thinking hard about getting it tuned now.  Think the trigger could be a little better with some tlc .    Would like to keep the stock power I think as it's used for hunting and target.      Thanks

Just wanted to add my voice to the praise that John is getting as a tuner. Sent him a Hatsan 95 in .22 cal that I had bought as a refurb. It went over as an okay shooter out to about 30 yds with A 4-lb trigger pull. Before I sent it, a 10-shot group of JSB 18.13gr had an ES of 30fps centered around 670fps (18.08fpe).

It came back cleaned, reworked inside and out with a new piston seal, a couple of spare breech seals and a 2-lb trigger. Now that same 10-shot group of JSB 18.13gr reads as follows: 698, 701, 700, 702, 698, 700, 691, 701, 700, 700. That's an ES of 11fps but it's just 4fps if you leave out the one low reading. I'm wondering if my chrony burped or something bc the group was under 0.5" at 30 yards (very good for me). That's also 19.73fpe.

Thanks John - I recommend him without hesitation.

Because of this post I bought a AATX 200 from a GTA member and had it sent to John for a tune before even looking at it. His magic is done and should be here this coming week.

John is a top of the heap tuner for sure. My RWS48 shot will enough but had a lot of twang so I sent it to John to work his magic. He installed a Vortek tune kit and tuned the T06 trigger to a clean breaking 1.3lbs. The twang was eliminated and the trigger is absolutely wonderful. The shot cycle is smooth as can be. I could not be happier with his work and recommend him to anyone who wants his gun tuned to it's potential.

Just got my 52 back today. It seems to have the same power but no twang and not so jumpy and violent. Now I have to get used to shooting a springer again.

    Let us know how she shoots!!! After 500plus shots she will be so much smoother!!! Once your spring settles and everything gets worked in you will be even MORE AMAZED!!!

     Spoke with John yesterday. My .22 Pro Sport is fixing to get her tune!!! I'm re finishing a Walnut stock with BLO to match the .177 Walnut stock. That's it on my Avatar, only thing is the .22 stock is taking on a Chocolate color which will be very nice, and I will be able to tell the calibers apart!! I plan on redoing the Beech stock and putting her up for sale. I'm so stoked about that .22 PS I know she will be a great hunter!!! I can't wait to see at what power level she likes best. I know she will be great, John has tuned every Springer I own and I have NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED!!!

   Take care Fellas!!

I took my 52 out yesterday and it is not the same gun I sent to John! It sounds totally different and it seems to shoot smoother with every shot while making the same power. I didn't set up to check accuracy at 25 -50 yards but I was ringing pans at 150 in a 15 mph cross wind with CPHP 7.9s. :D
Hopefully I will have time to try 25-50yards today. So far I am very impressed with what John did to this rifle! ;D

    Got my .22 Pro Sport back from John Thurdsay 9/14/18
Installed her new Walnut Refinished stock and scope. Took outside and sighted her at 30yds one little hole with GTO PELLETS. Went back to 55yds WOW!!! She shot several one hole 5shot groups several other .75" other groups 1" all depends on me not being too anxious to continue shooting!!! Lol the cocking effort is so smooth, trigger is butter smooth, shot cycle is so nice, no twang and ACCUARCY is wonderful!!! Before with the lighter pellets (GTO) she was a little harsh, but now it's a nice thunk!!! Have yet to check FPS but with John's paperwork she was at 18.5fpe with the GTO AMMO. I love both of my Tuned Pro Sports .177 - .22
I can't get over how nice the before and after shot cycle is my Spring Piston guns after John gets his hands on them and Works his Magic.

Take care Fellas, shoot and have FUN!!
