That rig will definitely do the job!

Now the trick will be getting the guy holding it to shoot it decently. :)

Do you find it difficult to load with the scope extended over the loading port?

X2 on that. I wanted to mount a bigger scope on my '97 but went with a 3-9 x 40 to clear the loading port.

I don't find it to be too much trouble. When I cock it sitting down, the barrel is up, so its just a matter of pushing the pellet up into the barrel. Its a bit harder if the barrel is more horizontal. But not too bad once you get used to it.

Back before the HW97K was released, people would have the loading port in the receiver machined farther down a bit to help with loading. I have one like this and it does help a bit. The HW97K are more opened up too.

I'm happy to see it go to a new home and add another FT Piston shooter to the mix!

When I was down in Mission shooting with the BC guys, I was amazed at their abilities with springers. That's a neat outfit. One day I'll have to go that direction - never had a good, smooth springer. Nice job on the gun. :D

When I started loading my HW 97K after adding a big scope I was having a hell of a time getting my act together and it seemed to take forever, however I found it was just a matter of repetition and now I load quickly and with little thought to the process.

The green machine and his HW did very well at the last match, chalking up a good score and taking a second place medal.
