Got my full power spring from R&R Airgun Repair yesterday. Shooting 864FPS with 8.6 grain pellets. Pretty happy with the performance. One shoots 587FPS with 7.4 grain (open sights), one 696FPS with 7.4grain and one 864FPS with 8.6 Grain. No longer own a stock Airhawk. My Hatsan 35S will remain my Stock 500FPS airgun.

A Good day to all. CHEERS!

I own three Ruger Airhawks and mostly all I shoot anymore. I do have others but I enjoy the ease of working on them and changing them around and making shooters out of them. One is my open fibre optic sight gun 589FPS (added in a valve spring from a Johnson outboard boat motor), one shooting 700 FPS, one shooting 495FPS but getting a full power spring. Vortex P2 kits will be at AGS in the next two weeks. The big size of the Airhawk just works for me. I enjoy my springers. My Hatsan 35S will remain my 495fps stock shooter. Have a couple novelty airguns that do not do pinpointing shooting which make them not a lot of fun to shoot but will keep working on them in time.

Anyone find their Airhawk is their go to gun for accuracy?

CHEERS!


So how did you alter the second Ruger? The one that shoots 700? I have the PAL version but no chronny.
cheers

Well I spent the weekend doing a stock mod after my piston liner crapped out. Since I was not able to shoot my air-hawk I figured a stock reduction was in order.
I patterned mine on PetersG dark pattern, painted the stock gloss black and may have created my new fav .177
Cant post a pic but personally think the diet was what the stock really needed.

I bought a used Airhawk off this forum that had trigger work and was shooting close to 600FPS. He said he shimmed the valve with washers when I bought it. Bought a spring from another member from this forum that was sent the wrong spring as he said it was 600FPS. So I kinda ended up their by accident but I can tell you it is the sweetest air rifle of the seven air rifles I own. My full power Airhawk is nothing like my seven hundred FPS. Full power spring is kinda rude. 700is a tack driver and no kick and extremely smooth cocking and shooting. Go through a ton of paper targets punching out the center dot more times than not. CHEERS!

Averaged out my speed today on my full power Airhawk. 946FPS with an 8 grain pellet. Got in my Vortek Super Moly Lube. Very expensive stuff but I wanted to quiet down the full power spring. Full power is a lot more hold sensitive than my 696FPS 7.4 grain pellet Airhawk. Pretty stiff to cock with a full power spring but with the moly lube it no longer grinds cocking it. CHEERS!
