finished at last my Mk1 HW80
« on: June 15, 2012, 07:20:36 PM »
Thought this was worthy of a new thread, my dream rifle is finally finished, an early .22 Mk1 HW80 serial number 948259. 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.
Rowan Engineering extra set back trigger and custom safety catch both in brass.
Simmons Whitetail Classic 3.5-10x50 scope with Sportsmatch HOP26C high one piece mount.
Pellet of choice is Falcon Accuracy Plus running at 11.7 ftlbs.
I think John Darling would be proud  ;D

Thanks guys ;D  Couldnt understand why when i emailed Weihrauch with the number it came back as 1985 when the number should be 1983. According to boffins over at BBS Weihrauch take the date from when the rifle was sold and the warrenty starts so 1983 it is  8)
