1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Hi, looking for advice on a decent kit.
    New to air rifles and having put approx 600 pellets through my first rifle in the last 3 weeks - a secondhand HW57.
    Now looking at stripping it down and giving it a good and most likely overdue strip & clean.
    Drop in a kit too as i don't know the guns history.
    A stripdown guide would be helpful too if anyone has one.
    Cheers Paul.

    is it twangy? if its second hand and its not,it may already be fitted with a decent guide.best strip it
    down and have a look inside first.same internals as a 99.if you want to give it the full
    monty go for some piston mods (rw, this is what i did for you,but you didnt send me your gun!)

    I know that the HW57 is a noisy gun, so not too sure weather it is twangy or not as just a novice.
    Hopefully going to the Northern Monkey HFT shoot next weekend so i can ask peoples opinons of the gun.
    Would like to strip it and fit a kit with new spring so i know where i am with the gun and can continue on maintaining and getting to know my gun.
    Good point about stripping first !.
    Many thanks

    The 57 is just a 99 in a party frock. A Very nice gun when sorted! There are plenty of options available to you, feel free to ask any questions, I'm sure the collective knowledge will help.:)
