The Weihrauch HW35 is fairly heavy for a young shooter and a bit weighty to hold for extended periods, however the build quality is excellent and the trigger is very good. I rate this rifle very highly… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2007 by Martijnzx (6 reviews written)

This air gun has been manufactured for over 50 years what i need to say more. There is no other air gun like it. It shoots great straight out of the box. Its Weihrauch quality. Make sure you buy the "S" version. It's fitted with the famous Record trigger. This means you can adjust first and second stage just the way you like it. It's a near Match type trigger. You can also fit a scope if you like. It will easy do for shooting up to 35/40 yards… Read Full Review

The Weihrauch HW35 is nice and weighty. It is very accurate, and great value for money. It is also very customisable! Mine is camouflaged, and it still looks good! I would recommend it to anybody who wants a high powered starter hunting air rifle!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2006 by torqueguy (8 reviews written)

The Weihrauch HW35 rifle is a classic. It's been the genesis of modern magnum springers. It's bbl latch is a great design.
I bought a 30 year old one in rough shape. After a new JM spring, guide and seal and proper lubrication, this thing came back to life!! I prefer it to my R1
Yes, there are better modern springers but this review is not a comparison to those, it's an evaluation on a classic springer… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/05/2009

I found this review helpful because...I agree totally with your comments.I have a 1970`s HW35 ,originally a 0.22.Then I was gifted a bag of HW bits,which included an even older 0.177 barrel.With the tired old original m/spring of the 0.22,my HW35; now converted to 0.177 struggles to do 9 ft/lbs with RWS Super-domes ;(9.4 ft/lbs with 4.52 mm Defiants).But (in still wind conditions) it stil does lovely 5 shot clover-leaf groups at 25 metres!Even with a tired m/spring it is so consistant and is a pure joy to shoot.

Written on: 05/01/2006 by tactileman (6 reviews written)

Considering it was first sold in Germany in the 1930s (apparently the Hitler Youth used them) and hasn't been updated very much to this day, the Weihrauch HW35 is a surprisingly good, strong, reliable rifle. Its styling and weight might put off younger buyers, but I find it easier to train on target than a lighter gun… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2006

It was NOT used by the Hitler Youth, production did not start until the 1950s. Air-rifles were the only guns the West Germans were allowed to make after WW2 and were made for target shooting and killing vermin, nothing to do with the Nazis. The trigger design was decades ahead of its time and is still in use now on nearly all HW air-rifles, and is the standard all other air-rifle triggers are compared to. The HW35 is still an extremely solid rifle and an excellent design, small details having been improved over its 50 year lifespan.

Written on: 29/10/2005 by tnobes (3 reviews written)

After spending 7 years in the Royal marines I was used to handling the most up to date weapons. When entering back into civi's I would not expect to find a 40 year old air rifle from my late uncle to impress me, and be in such superb firing condition. When I took my Weihrauch HW35 to my local gun shop for its first ever servicing, the man at the counter almost had a heart attack at how old it was, and yet it was still in good working order. When it came back out it was obviously in even better… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/09/2005 by Deadcentre (2 reviews written)

My Weihrauch HW35 is now 20 years old and is still sweet shooting. has fired over 30 000 pellets, been serviced three times only and I've never had any problems with it.
The build quality and finish are the best around outside of the custom shops.
The shooting experience is very nice, easy to cock, that sweet trigger release, and a gentle nudge of recoil.
I've got PCP's, which are more accurate (but only just). but I still get the 35 out because it's so satisfying to use. Maybe a bit old… Read Full Review

Weihrauch HW35: I have one of the first ones sold. Leather seal, all old style hardware, no safety, This gun has been well used, and at times, maintained with less than stellar attention (my fault). I inherited this from my Grandfather who was a full bird Army Colonel rated Expert marksman in both pistol and rifle.

I learned on this gun, but spent more hours with a Crossman 760 (again original old version). While the crossman was fun, I would shoot the HW35 at a coffee can, yes coffee can… Read Full Review

I got the Weihrauch HW35 2 years ago when I was just 12 and it has been great to me for taking care of rats and for target practice. It has only broke once, this was from it needing a new piston head but this was just out of old age. I would be grateful if someone gave me a tip on which rifle I should get next… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/02/2005 by EddieMarks (1 review written)

I purchased my Weihrauch HW35 about 25 years ago from Beeman. It was new but with a blemish so they sold it as a second. I also had an earlier rifle, a Webly Vulcan. I preferred the hw 35 as it shot somewhat better for my tastes and had a very nice workmanship about it. I'm not a master shooter by any means but I am intrigued by the term 'super tuning'. I am also, as father time erodes the quality of my vision, interested in a quality scope for my rifle. Any ideas? And finally how does a… Read Full Review

I have had my hw35 for about 2 years. The scope I have on mine is a tasco 2.75x40. It is a great scope I think, and you can't miss.

Written on: 26/12/2004 by tombo baggins (1 review written)

I was given this rifle as a gift, and I took it out on Christmas morning and tested it with no scope, I shot bullseye three times in three shots at thirty yards, and I'm not a sharp shooter by any means. The next day I attatched and zeroed a hawk optics scope, 4-32 (anything bigger is just for show offs) and hit at thirty yards a few more times, and decided to try the dreaded 60 yards. I expected to miss the bluetack bullseye by at least a foot. I shot, nothing happened, I thought I'd missed… Read Full Review

Weihrauch HW35 - I got my rifle for just £20 from a friend. He had put a 12ft/lb spring in it, a whisperer silencer and a 3-9x40 zooming scope. I find the gun very accurate over long distances as I shot an egg from a fence post at 100 yards first time, although I think luck played a part in it. It's very good for hunting and long distance target shooting… Read Full Review
