Air rifle scope?

Post by Max » 18 Feb 2016, 19:32

Hi. I have a cheep scope on a Weihrauch HW 97 which has to be rezeroed after a couple of hundred pellets.
Is this normal or do i need to buy a better scope? Reccomendations on good suitable meadium priced scope please. :think:

Rezeroing after "a couple of hundred pellets" is pretty normal for a powerful springer like the HW97. Make sure that the scope remains in the same position on the rail. The HW97 has a dovetail rail and the back scopemount needs to be 'anchored' in one of the holes in the rail with a pin like you see here: http://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/Leapers_A ... vetail/635

Or somethin like this behind normal scope mounts:

A dampa mount will help especially if the 97 is on fac.

theres a pasific weirach arrester block, it has two screws thay go in from the top..one of them usualy coinside with those two blind holes on the top of the action between the dove tails..

next is get one of those delrin spring guide kits..had a go of one and wow, no toothy ting or anything, about a 60 percent reduction in noise to..

springers are known for eating scopes (when the power goes up especialy) because theres actualy 3 'bangs' to the recoil..piston release, piston hits the end, and in some case the piston actuay has a little bounce back for number three, a bullet gun has just the 1 bang to the recoil.

on top i'd say get it set to 10.5-10.75 ish and try accupels if in .177. (youll still have the 50 yard kill zone because of the barrels quolity).

Same as owt else really,but cheap buy twice.
Sports match mounts with the arrester pin, job done.
Never had a problem with these on my 97k.
