Hw95 22 after 1 years use. Strip and inspection.
« on: January 10, 2015, 01:30:22 AM »
 When brand new this rifle (as with a 98 similar vintage :))it were ever so slightly a rough diamond. It felt bone dry when cocking. Shot on the vibey side. It got a basic service, nothing special ladida , just bisley and napier grease and a squirt of oil on the trigger.Cocks silently and smooth as tx.It's shot most of the time quite wonderfully 5000 with jsb 13.4 and maybe 5-700 15.9 . Though recently a little bit of boing has been creeping in. Velocity remains similarish to when new.
 
  So had a quick look inside -  the spring is  true, no kinking. Piston seal still had a cleanish face.No sharp edges on cocking clot. Some polishing off the high spots(or ovalness, I didn't want to measure :D) has occurred on the last 1/4'' of the piston skirt. 

 Regreased with some very thick grease made for wagon tail lifts, applied with a brush like gloss. A little napier vp summut on the piston seal .Sort of clean and crude relube of trigger and job done.


 I shot maybe 30 or 40 shots, just a dull thwock with no vibes or boing.The few shots through the trap show 600fps consistently.So..

 God is it that time, jeez, night all.

 I know that the previous 2 hw I've had have been factory assembled virtually dry.That seems to be the hw way nowadays. Not sure what other makes are doing lube wise.

 Yeh, pull'em apart and get some goo fired in.

Doing nearly 6,000 shot before needing a relube is good going I reckon.

  When I shoot this rifle it feels as though it hardly recoils, admittedly things are abit total tits up through the scope for a fraction+ :).

But watching my mate shoot it-  it actually recoils lots, maybe 1.5'' back and flips the muzzle up an inch or 2 aswell.It sort of whips about all over the place-but you know it feels as smooth as silk to shoot compared to 177 98 with what feels sharp recoil but only shifts maybe 1/2'' straight back in to the shoulder with zero front flip.Just saying..
