Cocking Effort: 34 lbs.
Power, accuracy and dependability- The HW80 has all three!
The Monte Carlo beech stock makes it easy to shoot accurately, and the checkered pistol grip and rubber buttpad deliver ultimate control. Hunt, plink or pop paper targets all day long with this spring-piston breakbarrel wonder that changed the airgunning world.
The Rekord trigger will spoil you, as it’s the standard by which all other triggers are measured. Whether you shoot competitively or hunt game, the extreme control over the trigger’s release will give you the extra edge.
Accurate and powerful spring piston. Extreme penetrating power.
As you can see by the set-up in the picture below, I tested the HW80 using a sliding gun vise to absorb any recoil and a solenoid to pull the trigger so that the tests were untouched by human hands. The pellets that were used were RWS Hyper Max 5.2 grains, JSB Diabolo Exacts 8.4 grain and Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum Heavy 10.5 grain. Of the three pellet weights, the 8.4 JSB Exacts gave the smallest groups of 6mm at 912 feet per second with 16 foot-pounds of energy at a distance of 10 meters. Bear in mind that it normally takes about 150 shots to properly break-in a spring-piston air rifle. Therefore as time passes, you should find that the groups will narrow even more. Also, because each air gun has its own personality, your results may vary… Dirt E. Harry
