    I'm based in the south east and I'm looking for a good air-rifle stockist. The places I've been have a limited range of mostly cheap, single-shot springers, or the odd precharge that they dont know (or care) much about.

    I'm thinking specifically about getting a HW100 or 110. Any recommendations?

    Cheers man. How is the HW100 working out for you? Worth the money?

    It's Mt first air rifle but I'm very happy with it. I picked it up a bit ago but only really got good use out of it this summer. It took me awhile at the start to get accurate with it. The main issue I had was pellets once I found a pellet that works for the gun it was spot on, I also picked up a cheap range finder as well that made things alot easier.

    I have it in .22 and have it zerod to 30m, my main shooting with it is vermin aound farm yards mainly corvids. It's really useful for that kind of work easly knocking them between 30 to 45m. U see some lads online saying they cleanly kill out alot further but I'm not sure about that (maybe it's just my shooting )The only negative side I have found is u can't adjust the power for shooting inside sheds.

    I picked up a 7l air bottle with it when I bought it and have only had to get it filled once now saying that I only use it for vermin if u were target shooting u would use a fair bit I say. I get about 30 shots per fill until the power starts to drop. Tbh u wouldn't even need an air bottle if its only vermin u are using it for u could just get a pump.

    I have read online and seen on alot of Facebook groups where lads seem to have all kinds of issues with them loosing power and leaks but I think it might just be uk based.

    The pros for me is its a good starter rifle to see if an air rifle is for u and u can always move on to the facer ones after air arms, fx etc.

    The only con for me is not being able to adjust power for inside work

    If u need anymore info let me know
