I got this gun on a trade with another forum member a year ago. It was an older but rare stainless version with black wood stock. It had no iron sights, cocked with a clicking noise, also some scratches and dents under the forearm from resting the rifle on fence posts.

To fix the clicking noise, two pivit pins were replaced. One just under the cocking arm, the other was the one on the front of the cocking arm going through the breach block. The second one needed to be pushed out with a special tool. I used a motorcycle chain tool.

While the gun was apart, at the same time I replaced The breach block pivit bolt and nut and breach seal.

To improve the appearance, an older style Crosman metal muzzle brake was added to the front of the barrel. The cheap and uncomfortable plastic buttpad was replaced with an adjustable one.

Having done all that, The groups I got were still inconsistent, I later pushed out the cross pin where the alive-jam steel ball locked on. It had worn a dent at the contact point with the steel ball. Causing inconsistent breach lock up, thus inconsistent POI. I turned the pin 180 degrees then pushed the pin back in.

I noticed the fps kept slipping, it was a broken main spring. I replaced it, Now the guns shoots as it should.

The scratches and dents on stock I did not want to do a complete strip and refinish. So, I just filled with wood filler then black stained the whole stock before finishing with TruOil. I now got a piano black stainledd steel HW30S. The finish was hard to keep consistent due to the stain not adhere/soak in properly. I finally decided to sand away the old finish to bare wood. After adding two coats of the black stain then wiped dry. I added two coats of Antique Oil. The result was a consistent and textured wood finish that is matt black/dark grey in colour. Sort of like my old Crosman 760.

Now I have an unique, accurate shooting HW30S. Totally happy with the result.

Hey, well done as usual! It's satisfying bringing the neglected ones back to life. The old main spring sure was a mess... maybe responsible for the excess wear on the pins and linkage too.

Thanks guys, I sanded the stock down to smooth out the stock finish. This time, I thinned down the black stain and applied many coats, then 0000 wirewooled, finally two coats of Antique Oil. Now the stock's finish looks more even, still uniquely showing wood grain and have a textured surface.Image

Corrections, the main spring broke during my ownership, it was OK when I got it. So I don't blame anyone for that.

Yes, but it was probably due to neglect from the previous owner.
