Forgot I had a blog...

As the title says, I totally forgot I had a blog. Will probably post tomorrow. Review of the HW97KT.

Sorry all

Had my internet cut off because of 'breaching fair useage policy', so that's why I haven't blogged lately. Will post a few more reviews tomorrow after I write them up, cheers.

Sad News

Couldn't find anyone willing to lend me any pre-WWII rifles to shoot, they said they'd lend me them for exhibition. I still am not sure how I was supposed to review the gun just by looking at it...

Anyways, I'll get this blog back on track within the next few days, and review some modern air rifles instead.

I know this is a reviews blog, but I've decided due to interest I'm gonna do a 'brief history' post about air rifles later on, whilst I desperately try and acquire a pre-WWII air rifle, haha.

Any requests on what air rifle I should review next? I can get pretty much any rifle to review, provided it's either .177 or .22, and between £100- £1000.

Walther CP88 4'' review

My first thought when firing this pistol was how balanced it felt, it felt exactly like a pistol should - an extension of your arm. It feels light but not too light, meaning aiming is very accurate and quick.

The 'Walther CP88' logo is machined into the metal, whereas the CP99 has poor quality laser printing. The overall feel when looking and shooting this gun was 'quality'.

At 10 yards I was getting inch groupings, which is very good for a CO2 pistol. It also has adjustable power, which comes in handy depending on the ranges of the targets.

The CP88 is probably the best air pistol I've ever had the pleasure of shooting, it feels natural holding it in your hands, there are many on the second hand market for £80 - £150, and they are great fun to shoot, very hard to put down.

This fantastic piece of German engineering gets top marks from me, 10/10.

Not my video.

BSA R-10 Test

The R-10 keeps a few features of it's predecessor - the 'SuperTEN', namely the hammer-forged barrel which had a brilliant response from owners of the SuperTEN and the 200cc reservoir.

Straight onto the good points in this post:

- 10 shot rotating mag with bolt- action cocking
- Has a huge reservoir fill capacity (232 Bar / 3,360psi) meaning many shots can be taken before you need to refill.
 - Very balanced feel, doesn't weigh much either

Bad points

- Not as accurate as the HW100 although this may be because I didn't take the time to zero it very well
- No open sights, so if for some strange reason you want to remove the scope that came fitted with the gun and shoot using open sights, you'll have to fit your own

Overall, 7.5/10.

HW100K Review

I got hold of a Weihrauch HW100K rifle for a review last week. Over the past 8 days or so, I've used this gun for field target shooting, plinking and some vermin control. The conclusions I came to are:

Good points:
- Accurate, can put pellet on top of pellet from 30-40 yards
- Well engineered, finish on the barrel was superb and the stock had very nice graining
- Quite heavy which some people may find is a pain, but I found it helped to keep the gun more stable

Bad points:

- Silencer cannot be removed from barrel and it is quite poor to be honest
- Sidelever cocking is poor
- Heavy
- Expensive, not fantastic value for money

Overall, I'd give this rifle a 8/10 - If only the silencer could be removed to fit an aftermarket one, and the gun was given a different cocking option it would be higher.
