with it at that point and created a RMA with Airgundepot. I will try my luck again with a replacement. Personally I like its size and power but the rough/gritty cocking make this
gun feel like it's a $30 Chinese beater instead of a close to $400 German steel. Oh, forgot the mention on this particular gun, the auto safty doesn't always work. All in all, a
bad experience with a HW.
The Rekord trigger is legendary and breaks crisp and clean. The shot cycle is quite nice with a very slight thumpy buzz . Much better than many other airguns. I've run several hundred pellets through it already and it keeps getting better. JSB Exact 8.44gr run fastest followed by brown box Crosman Premiere Light 7.9gr but the CPL's are slightly more accurate in this example.
If you've been sitting on the fence eyeballing this gem, there is no better time than now(or when Airgun Depot has one of their killer specials with XX% off + Free Shipping) to pick one up.
You won't be disappointed! I am not and I already have an HW30, 97 & 98.
