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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

The new package Weihrauch HW35+Silencer works pretty well.
The noise of the spring is much lower compared to my DIANA. The muzzle noise is about the same as spring noise. (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

Well I bought a HW35 on recommendation as a good starter rifle from a friend. I have to say it is accurate and powerful. As a new starter to the spot could someone inform me of good instructions on how to service it properly as I am keen to know all aspects of the gun and sport for full understanding and enjoyment, thank you.

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 more)
