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.

it normally takes about 150 shots to properly break-in a spring-piston air rifle
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 14.3 grain JSB Diabolo Exacts, 21 grain Beeman Kodiak Double Gold, 28.4 grain EunJins, and 32.4 grain EunJins. Of the four pellet weights, the 21 grain Beeman Kodiak Double Golds gave the smallest groups of 8mm at 596 feet per second with 17 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
