the hw77 was bought 20 years ago with two weeks holiday pay when i was an apprentice, i would have bought an air arms tx200 instead but i had no money for scopes and the air arms has no open sights, so the hw77 was the best choice...
its a bit sentimental so im afraid she's not for sale, thanks for the offer though...

the moderator is a pes cant remember the model number but its full stainless built and great attenuation.... bloody heavy though... its on my ruger .243

Fair play, I'd hang on to it as well, like a fool I let an HW80 go about 16/18 years ago whilst on a financial skidpan and regretted it ever since.
