Bought a HW100 SK in .177 recently (second-hand), to complete my PCP collection, along with a new Daystate Huntsman carbine, also in .177. I thought the HM was accurate, but the Weihrauch tops it for consistency over the chrono with the same 15fps spread over 70 shots as the HM has over 60. This was all with unweighed pellets (H&N FTT 4.50 8.6gn) and I think the variation is weight, rather than a power curve ... it's pretty darned flat until it drops off right at the end. It really isn't as heavy as some say and the styling really does grow on you, and that's saying something after the beauty of the HM. The Weihrauch moderator may be a tad quieter than my Hogan Decimeater, the rotary magazine system is elegant and reliable, and the single-shot adapter is just a joy to use. Impossible to double load the breech (nice feature) and the safety only operates when the gun is cocked, so serves as a "gun cocked" indicator (obviously). Paid nearly 600 quid for it, which I thought was steep, but the gun is as new, and shoots the heck out of the HM. Tbh, they are both pretty evenly matched. What don't I like, the trigger is a bit creepy, not as crisp as I'd like, but nice and light. Also, the pressure gauge is in the muzzle-end of the quick-fill cylinder ... gives me the heebie jeebies sometimes as I peer round into it. Overall, can't put it down. Super compact, super handling, super accurate.
