Today I received my aftermarket air cylinder for my HW100KT FSB from Ratworks.
I installed the new cylinder with the ends removed from the OEM air cylinder. The Ratworks FAC cylinder gave me roughly 10cm extra length.
The gun was then tuned down in power to get a shot count goal of 80+ shots per 200 bar fill.
Upon measuring the OEM 18.4 fpe power set up, the pressure regulator was set at 131 bar. Knowing the rifle's shooting characteristics, it will shoot down below reg setting without change in POI if tuned right. I changed the reg setting to 120 bar.
The maximun pellet speed was then tested by changing hammer spring tightness. It was found the gun can still achieve 893 fps at the 120 bar reg setting.
The hammer spring was then turned down to achieve 870 fps, the gun was found to be very consistent at this setting. Not to mention the shot count increased from 45 using factory cylinder to now 90 shots on reg. With more shots having same POI off reg.
Here is the result of my tune as promised:

Impressive! You have to be extremely content with that setup! And I am impressed by your marksmanship as well.
What distance are the targets?

Hi Duke,

I am embarrassed to admit that was benched at 50 ft.[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

This is not my first HW100, as such the tuning/disassembly was familiar to me. Sort of know what to expect from the gun already.

Thanks,

Tom

As they say, the proof is in the pudding. Well done.

Impressive performance.

I'm assuming that's the H/W barrel you are shooting with.
50 feet is still nothing to sneeze at.

I have gotten similar accuracy out of the Crosman boxed heavy domes in .177, and their effective "grouping" range is a pleasant surprise.
Pricing on them has gone up quite sharply in the past year.

I think the gun should get more consistent with time. So far, only around 500 pellets went through the stock HW barrel. It is still a new gun.

The quest continues in search of the more accurate pellet.

Thanks Doc for your advice,

Tom

Finally went shooting with HW100KT FSB outdoors. Even if shooting at targets less than 36 yards away. The HW100KT FSB is showing great performance.

At the 1" sigh-in targets 30 yards away, shooting with a monopod Hunter Field Target style. I was able to group within 1/2" consistently. Even in the wind.

Used the HW100KT FSB today for the HAHA Field Target match. This gun never shot beyond 36 yards prior to today.
Very happy to shoot only one point apart from the top shooters today. It definitely will improve over time.
