    Hi All,
    I know a little local lad who's really into airguns, he originally had a little plastic SMK thing, I'd fix it for free, but it was poor to say the least, so I gave him my lads old HW25.

    The thing is he's beating most of the adults down his local club already but could do with something a little better.

    His Dad certainly hasn't got enough money to stump up for a decent gun so I thought it'd be a great forum project to sort him out a nice little HW99.

    Foxy @foxtrott has a cylinder, back block and few other pieces, I'll obviously be doing the work and fitting a TBT kit to it. I'm sure Mikey @mikeyhall1 being will try and mump a few bits with his immensely skilful scrounging skills. I also understand Steve @HW100Tuning has a spare Rekord trigger which he doesn't know he's going to give me yet!

    So I'm after any HW99 spares or compatible bits you might have, I'm happy to lay a reasonable price for them.

    Many thanks

    BM

    I've got a few springers that I could probably donate if it would help- mostly BSA I think, but there may be some others there. If its any use let em know, and I'll go through and see what I've got.
    Failing that, fora 99 I've got a pretty much new stock, and i THINK a 177 barrel, but need to check. Probably some other bits and pieces but it depends what I can find. Yours if they can help at all :)
    I can also have a word with my RFD if theres anything that doesnt turn up, he's into helping people out and can usually find something - a lot of the time he is like me and happy to get a bit of spare room.

    That’s a really decent thing to do, sorry I don’t have any hw99 bits but just thought I would say well done for doing this for the lad!

    I have an Enfield 3-9 scope doing nothing at my house.

    Not sure of it is robust enough for springers and it's pretty basic (mil dot) but if it's useful let me know.

    I think I have the original spring, guides and washers at home mate but not much use if your planning a TBT set. your welcome to them though, I’ll check when I’m home.
    I may also muster up a cheapish scope and a bag :thumb:

    I'll certainly have a look through my spares but think I'm pretty much cleaned out of HW parts.

    I do however have a choice of a couple of scopes I'm happy to donate if needed.

    BSA essential 3-9x50 (30mm tube) mil dot ret
    Or
    Hawke HD 3-9x50 duplex

    Let me know if you want either @Blackmax
