    First let me say that you have a great forum here with very good info!

    My name is Filipe and I’m from Portugal, Europe.

    Now, about guns, I own a very special HW97K, an HW40 and a Gamo PT80.
    The HW40 is good for plinking and is some modifications, as well as the PT80 (nice piece of crap!).

    This is my baby:

    Fully tuned HW97K .177 chromed with Venom kit and some genious modifications from a friend of mine that completely killed the recoil and twang (if you want some info I can write a very big detailed post sometime).
    It had a Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24×40, that I regret every day for selling it.
    Now equipped with a BSA 3-12×50.
    I had an “electronic tsunami” in my personal computer πŸ˜† and lost every photo I had, but I can assure you that using this gun you can be all day shooting a target through a 1/4″ hole. By the way is 12fpe, my FT rig.

    But just like everything good comes to an end I got tired of FT and springs and started saving money for my first PCP.

    Next week I’ll get my used AA S410 .22 Xtra FAC πŸ˜† now that’s talkin!
    It belongs to my friend that tuned my HW.

    Here’s a pic of it:

    It had a trigger job, vinyl coating in the bottle and an aluminum end cap.

    Since I can’t have any stock gun, I’m already makin the contacts do start mod’in it. In first place if I can get a hold of it, a LW 28″ .22 16mmOD choked barrel (tryin to get Lothar Walther to make me one since they do special requests), if not I’ll get a 24″ and a nice sound moderator (threaded). Already working on a future BR/Varmint walnut stock. Versa-pod bipod ready to attach. And thinking in one of those chinese 10-40×60. Power is the last issue in my list (but obviously no excluded!).

    I can´t talk with my friend about the new barrel, if knew I’m going to “ruin” is baby he would grab it and shoot me πŸ˜†

    So I wanted to know your opinion about the swap to a new barrel, either the 28″ or 24″. Can I expect better accuracy? More power I’ll certainly gain.

    Since I don’t want to bother you more this I’ll post a video, maybe some guys have seen others don’t.

    (browse his other vids)

    I’ll post some pics one I get my S410 😈

    Good shooting!


    Welcome and glad you found us. Those are nice looking gun for sure. You will love that AA410. I have on and it is a great gun.

    We would love to see any detailed reports you care to share!


    I have an “affair” with her for almost 2 years πŸ˜†
    Probably I’ve put around 500 shots everywhere I wanted. Even when I started shooting with it, I had a little problem getting used do pull the bolt all the way back, and trying to fix it I usually loaded 2 pellets, even with 2 pellets it’s dead on!

    Can you tell me somethin about the barrels?

    Btw, saw you on AAOC, nice guns there, but I wonder why no one modifies S4x0… it’s a great gun!


    welcome to the fold my friend u will fin the forum very good for info and there,s a shit load off great lads on it aswel ..


    Wow! That’s impressive! Beaning beer bottles from 218 yards!
    Welcome to the forum and thanks for the great video.


    A friend made me an offer to change my HW97K for his Gunpower Storm plus the some money. What do you think about this? I’ve used it sometimes before but I was really disappointed with it’s accuracy since I always shoot Dominators, Steyrs, Ripleys, …

    Here’s a pic from the site:

    Obviously I would have to do some mods, but in my to do list there’s already the S410 and a new scuba bottle πŸ™ since money doesn’t grow from trees…
