  1. With the scope on x9, I'd look to get a clear image at about 25yds. This can be achieved by re-parallaxing the front optic lense. You will need to loosen the front bell cover of the scope then you will see inside it is the lense carrier. This is a tubular threaded component and normally has two small slots in the front. Wind the carrier out in quarter turns then look through the scope and look for clarity on target at 25yds. Once achieved, tighten the front bell cover. For ranges below 25yds, reduce the magnification and it should become clear. The scope is probably a generic Chinese unbranded scope that seem to be supplied for package deals. Once the scope is set, you should then be able to fine tune with the rear adjustment. If you try to correct out of focus with just the rear adjustment, you will put the reticle out of focus, so it's important that that you use the rear adjustment first to get the reticle clear before you play with the front bell housing cover. By the way, on lower magnification, it's not unusual to see the front of the barrel.

    I had the LGV Master Pro. Best shooting rifle out of the box, I've had. A bit weighty, but well balanced. Mine was .177" cal and from memory, it wasn't pellet fussy, performing equally well on most popular premier brands (H&N / JSB)
  3. It's a common problem with the FWB Sports. The piston seal material decays and crumbles to cheese like consistency. It will need a strip down and the piston debris will need to be thoroughly cleaned from the cylinder and piston and a new seal fitted. Seals are still available from spares stockists such as Chambers or John Knibbs. The Sports do require a bit of care to disassemble without losing parts and potentially injuring yourself into the bargain, so as suggested previously, if you're not comfortable stripping down air rifles, leave it to someone else.

    I've a 1966 HW35 I renovated and have on open sights. It's a nice mid-weight springer capable of legal limit power levels. It depends on what you want really, the HW99 is a nice lightweight and the HW77 is quite a beast to lug around by comparison. I'd not bother with the HW30 as it's best efforts will only give you about 8ft/lbs (can you stalk to sub 20yds on a rabbit?). You won't go wrong with any of the above. I just wish I had the eyesight I had in my younger days as the best I do now is 6 yds bell target.
  5. Hi, is that the price each or for the pair?
  6. As above, it's for a project, so as long as it's in one piece and crack free, I'd be interested
  7. I've dropped you a message as I'm interested in purchasing this.
  8. The piston seal will need replacing. They are notorious for going to pieces in the cylinder.
  9. I did some work on a hatsan trigger. I added a longer m3 adjuster trigger. If I remember it was about 9mm long, though great each trigger individually. It helps with trigger release but not first stage travel.
  10. Could I have two please? Please advise how you want paying.
  11. Yes Please. PM me with postage costs and preferred payment
  12. Hi, I'll take the spring, if it's still available?
  13. A couple of things: Can you confirm the ret'? Is that scratching on the eyebell paintwork on your photo?
  14. Must admit I was confused, though I guessed they'd all gone. If you had any more available, please put me down for 2 (either forks or straights)
