Hiya, just wanted to say you made a good choice. Absolutely love mine, would never have believed how accurate one of these things can be, take a little time to get familiar with your new toy and I'm sure you will never part with it.
Look forward to seeing you at the club when you get the chance.

Great news, I have one springer HW97K, a gas ram Lightning SE and a Scorpion single shot pcp, and to be honest I get most pleasure shooting the spring and ram, even though my highest competition score was with the pcp. One day soon I will beat my personal best with a proper recoiling rifle, until then it's all good practice.
See you soon,
Tinks.

Yeh, mine was early 90's too. We could do with more springer shooters & then we could have a recoiling class in the monthly comps, which would please Tinks & James
