The quality of the polishing and bluing on the steel action, barrel and underlever exceeds what you'd normally find on comparably priced firearms. The Monte Carlo stock has a raised cheekpiece, and the beech stock has hand-cut checkering on the pistol grip. The stock is capped with a soft rubber recoil pad to give you ultimate control. The Rekord trigger, which is praised by shooters and admired by competitors, adjusts to your needs.
The 11mm grooves in the receiver make it easy to mount a scope (it does not come with open sights). If you like the simplicity and ease of shooting a spring-piston gun, then give the HW97K serious consideration.

Wow, can this thing can shoot! I was able to shoot several 50 yard groups darn near under a dime right out of the box. The extra weight really stabilizes this thing.
Mine was shooting very accurately at 930FPS with CPL with the stock spring, but had some twang. I am currently using an un-spaced Hornet spring fitting very tightly on the stock guide for a twangless 920FPS. For a while I was running a spaced-up HW50S spring and getting a very easy-cocking and mellow-shooting 850FPS. I liked that setup the best, but it was a bit twangy without fitted guides. Even with the full power spring, this gun is very quiet. Although it does not have baffles, the hollow muzzle weight seems to lower the noise.
The gun is very short and well-balanced. The cocking stroke is super smooth. The Rekord trigger is crisp. Backing off the trigger weight screw lightened it nicely well maintaining crispness.
