Light weight, how silencer,sleek design.
I purchased a springer as an alternative to my soulless pre charged air rifle..after reading all the good reviews on here about the hw97k, i managed to find a mint second hand 97k in a good gun shop, but i found the 97k so disappointing, it was way too heavy and way too loud...the shop had given me 7 days trial so i took it back, still wanting a springer..and purchased the new screw cut weihrauch 95k with the new hw silencer, The 95k is a much better gun in my opinion.. it is just the right weight, you don't want a spring gun too light .The hw silencer does an excellent job..the 95k is very quiet for a spring gun..not near pre charged quietness but very good. i prefer the break barrel design..it feels like a good old air gun solid and neat..the stock is sleek and pretty traditional but i really like that. I am also partial to a left handed shot if i,m stalking and my prey is on the wrong side of my shielding tree and the 95k's design is perfect for this..i don't want to worry about a fashionable trendy stock..once you are out hunting a flashy stock isn't going to make you more success full..the 95k feels like a real no nonsense hunting tool, and not just a finicky target competition focused gun.The 95k will last me years it is so well made, i,m looking forward to summer evenings with just a pocket full of pellets and no technicality to spoil it.
