The Purolator Santa came by today with a delivery from SSSO!
I had been wanting a .177 under leaver for a year ,even had a Hornet kit from Mr. Maccari ready.
SSSO got the gun and some odds and ends out in 3 days..pretty good.
I just got the kit in, locktited the screws tuned and molyied the trigger and made sure it cocked and fired!
While letting the Locktite cure I mounted a 5x15 Legend .
I'm on afternoons so might have to sneak over to the club tomorrow or Friday for a sight in session before work...kelly :D
Excuse the busy picture ,could'nt wait to post

Just got back,time for a coffee and a quick post and off to work..boooo!
This gun has a full Maccari kit ,a lot tamer than what I put in my Hw 77.
Easy cocking no twang and did'nt diesel once.
I have heard some chatter last year about Weihrauch quality dropping lately,sure can't see that on my 77 or 97 inside or outside the gun.Wood to metal fit and finish were excellent.
The scope was way out,a takeoff from a 700 fps. .22 cal. gun so i did some sighters at 10 yds ,probably 3 turns of elevation needed from the old gun and it was 1.5 " right.
I used a old target on the backstop to sight in and off to 40 yds.
Interesting weather reports said 4/5 km. wind but our range is next to highway 1 and I bet it hit 80 km.from the back and cross the range!
I put about 70 pellets through and picked up my Targets 4 times,that was enough,here is a few pics:

10 yd sighters

40 yds.

Target down!!

A nice way to start the day next week I'll get in some night shooting ,we have Halide lights on the 25 and 50 td. ranges
I can bring 3 guests 10.00 drop in if any one wants to come!
