lucky find of a timeless classic .


Recommended Posts

This old girl was in a sorry state when i found her ,tatty beaten up old stock and some nasty rust on the metal work including some nasty pitting ,underneath all that seemed to me to be a gun that had seen little action ,so worth the price of some sand paper and oil .A bonus was the original sights still in place ,the spring was in good nick so just added new seals and ready for a new life !

For those who don't know HW 80 mk1 in .22  from the 1980s.

Lovely I bought a doer upper a while ago and had the stock refinished and the gun reblued.  I rebuilt it with a standard TBT kit and 18 ft lbs with the two power washers fitted.  Removed those and 2 coils and back legal.  I had one when I was 16 and they first came out in 1981 and with hindsight I think that was well over, no Chrony's back then.  A true iconic classic.  Well done for renovating it.
