Reblued by Colin Malloy of Manchester airguns. 15mm Original early 1980`s Venom steel silencer also reblued by MAG. Barrel shortened to 13 inches, recrowned and silencer blended in ( 15mm silencer on 16mm barrel) by Helston Gunsmiths. Piston fitted with Delrin buttons and rear bearing (was sold this as a Dave Hall piston but cant confirm this. Tony Wall said whoever had done it had done an excellent job). Tuned by Tony Wall atSandwell Field Sports.
CS500 walnut sporter stock with stippling grip and square cut front end in homage to the original MK1 HW80 stock.
