Well, I changed the order - took the Eun Jin 16.1 gr. outa there and added some Crossman 10.5 gr. and Beeman 11.57 gr. We'll see how it goes. Thanks again.

No pellets yet. It's gonna be delayed because one of the items - JSB Exact Monster - is on back order and I chose to ship complete order rather than pay two shipping costs. No idea when it'll show up but probably after Thanksgiving.

What do you think of me putting a scope or red dot on the HW90? Would it be too rough (vibration) on that sort of thing? I think reviews of the gun say they're rough on optics.

HW90 needs a good scope mount and springer rated scope 4 sure... I like BKL260-D7 droop mounts for 1 inch scopes and a Modified RWS lockdown droop mount with extra clamp screws added and no recoil stop pins used ...see the extra clamp screws??

I also line the rings with this tape to stop slippage



Sportsmatch also makes a Dampa Mount thats is for high power springers ...its sorta pricey

quality drooped mount and a good scope kept in center 1/3 of both adjustment ranges and a Ram not over filled for max power and ya will be fine

Thanks a million for the info, Critter. I really appreciate the specific references. I'm going to look into this soon - this gun could really benefit from a scope. I've got a birthday coming up and Christmas too - maybe I can work in the mounting hardware and scope.

UPDATE: I just noticed that the Theoben Dampa Mount shows 'no longer available" - http://www.precisionairgunsandsuppli...theodampamount - that sounds like a permanent statement rather than a temporary situation to me.

I see. Looks like the DM60 is the one for me to look for - I compared the pic on the Precision Air Guns with the Sportsmatch (UK) site to and they look the same. I'm going to try for that one assuming it's the better choice than the RMS one on Pyramyd.

my friend has a .20 cal RX2 (same as HW90) he was the pne that originated the modified RWS lockdown for usage with no stop pins and 30MM dia scope tube ...

I might add he is a ME type by profession so I trust his choices on clamping forces increases with extra screws

I've ordered the RWS mount. I can put it on my R7 if I don't want to use it on my HW90 and the price is easy enough on the budget that it's worth trying - I even got a little discount (if you can call 10% a discount.) A buck's a buck I guess - thanks for the extra info - you sold me.

Critter, I've gotten the RWS mount for my HW90 as well as some heavier pellets - 10+ to 13+ grains. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to get out and shoot and I really can't shoot much here at home. I haven't even mounted the scope mount yet, much less put a scope on it but I probably will soon.

I'm thinking of ordering one of the connectors and a pump so that if I let out to much pressure I can get it back up to pressure. I do have a chronograph so I can measure the pressure by using that before I start tinkering.

The question that I have is, do you have any advice or thoughts BEFORE I order this stuff? I'm trying not to jump the gun or go too fast on this one. I'm thinking of ordering this - http://www.bestfittings.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=638 - and be done with it. It's pricey but then so was the gun and I'm in no particular hurry at this point. Whaddaya think?
