HW95, more fun with airgunz



Log in to see fewer ads
I just put a scope on my airgun,



It works nice...




That was 5 shots. (All from 10 yds, with JSB domed)

Not bad for a SPRINGER!

Rest is a cardboard box with foam (left of the box). The rear is my shoulder...

Pretty low-tech but I have no complaints.

I love my Hw95, great gun. It whacks beer cans at 100yds and shoots ten shot one ragged hole groups @ 30 yards. Be forewarned every UTG scope I put on it broke in short order. All were replaced under warranty but it got to be a drag chasing my tail wondering if it was the rifle or the scope. I eventually choked up the money and put a Nikon EFR on it and its been great ever since. That was 3 plus years ago.

The UTGs I had break had unlit wire reticles. The worst part was that the failure wasn't obvious. They would just not hold zero for long. I wasted so much time and money trying to figure out what was wrong. Even sent the rifle back for evaluation and there was nothing wrong with it. It was just a constant flow of poor quality scopes. Most were UTG, that were supposed to be springer rated.

Yes those are not very good scopes. I have one. It sits now. I am going to give mine away. Guy on YouTube did a review on it. His final words were cheap.
