I purchased this used HW80 from Malik Asif (a TGF member) about a month back .. I follow a busy schedule therefore rarely get time for this passion .. On three or four occasions I tried zeroing it and failed miserably .. not knowing the exact cause I tried every solution that came to my mind but no success .. Then I contacted a firearm enthusiast who very kindly invited me over for a few test .. very soon the fault was discovered which was in the quality of pellet .. i was using Irani, Gamo pro-magnum and Gamo match but all these are not quality pellets and when we used crossman premiers the results were excellent.

Today I took some time and performed a few tests here a few stats and figures :

Pellets used : H&N FTT 0.95g .22
Distance : 24 meters
Pellets fired : 5
Group : 0.5 inch (a more steady hand can achieve a groupp of 0.25 inch .. just my analysis )

Same Pellets
Distance : 38 meters
Group about 2 inches (knowing that two shot i fired out of 5 were not perfect)

The Hunt
10 pellets fired at distances of 20 yds to 40 yds approx and got all 10 hits taking down a few pigeons, some doves and starlings

My analysis
-- HW80 is quite accurate airgun like diana mod 52
-- I would prefer it above all other airguns (springers only) available in Pakistan and all models of diana except mod52 and higher models
-- There are some controversies related to diana springs which break or loose power; other than that, the models i mentioned are better
-- The only negatives of HW80 are; its weight which is 8.8lbs and the fact that u need expansive pellets to get "1 shot 1 kill" accuracy
-- Overall it is a lot of fun and highly recommended

I have taken a few few pics of today's events which i will add later
I hope my aim and feel of the gun improves soon so i can post better figures here
Thanks

That's a nice short review brother. Thanks for the effort. It will be great if you add a few pics. We can request the mods to add those pics to your main review at a later stage.

All good air guns are German manufactured and all are on the heavy side. RWS 54 Airking is ever heavier. Heavy weight goes along well with the springers I believe.

regards

here are some videos and pics of the my zeroing efforts .. the whie paper target was used last week, whereas the pink color target is of toady and the videos are also from today's shoot

Last week I did some zeroing but due to time shortage the final touch was not given .. it was slightly right and up as can be seen in group on white paper .. so before the hunt i adjusted it slightly right but i guess it went off slightly .. (the first group on pink target ) then i fine adjusted again and the second video shows the result .. please note that the first shot in second video was a loose pellet and hit low ..

Sir thank you ... it is all because of you ...
My son has given up on handling this airgun (obviously its too heavy for him ) .. now I'm planning on making a pogo stick like rest for him to take part in the fun .. he can shoot while we target practice but cannot shoot while on the move

just came back from another target practice and results where real promising

at 25 meters i made four groups of five rounds each here are the results

-- 1st Group : 12/16 " or 0.75 " CTC (centre to centre)
-- 2nd Group : 8/16 " or 0.5 "
-- 3rd Group : 7/16 " or less than 0.5 inch
-- 4th Group : 7/16 " or less than 0.5 inch

I will post the video links and pics in a while
What caused the improvement
-- Most importantly there was no wind today
-- I sorted the slugs by size even in H&N there are slightly bigger and those which fit loose (comparatively) .. individually all these are accurate but mixing them makes group larger
-- I just put hand under the airgun and giving it no grip at all

the best thing is that i can hit a quarter inch bull on will .. the scope is tough to zero on bull (a long story which i will explain later) but now at 25m i can hit the bull 4 out of 5 times

My son also practiced with me he is 11yrs old and here is his group. At the first fire he said the trigger went too early so he fired 6 pellets .. the lowest one was the first shot and one on the top was the last shot
