I like the colour combination. It reminds me of my wife's Christian Louboutin heels...

Very nice indeed.
That Trigger Guard stands out.
Is it the stock version that has been polished down and clear coated ? Or is it an 'after market' version for the HW30/HW50S Weihrauch platform ?
Would like to get a bit more details if you could provide. I have a HW50S Nickel w/ Minelli wood stock I'm currently 'personalizing'.
Thanks,
Hawk-i

Thank you. The trigger guard is a standard stripped and polished Weihrauch, bought it from the guy who did this and also milled away some more metal around the hole over the trigger adjustment screw.

Thank you vestlenning for the reply and additionnal details.
I was thinking of doing the 'strip/polish/clear coat' to the OEM trigger guard...but wasn't sure about what type of metal it was. I can see that it seems to be a MIM casting because of the seam along the center of the guard. This is unlike the machined and polished/blued hardware found on other european airguns. Since you have done it...this reassures me that if I go with a polished finish I should succeed with the alloy Weihrauch has used for the Trigger Guard.
I think a silver/nickel trigger guard would be very well suited for my Nickel version of the HW 50S.

Once I have finalized my personal touches to my newly acquired 'fraulein' Imageairgun...I'll be back to Post some pics in this Section.
Cheers!
