tactileman's review of Weihrauch HW35

★★★★☆

“Considering it was first sold in Germany in the 1930s...”

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

Good Points
I learnt to shoot with my HW35, so I find its weight perfect for my style. I like the fact it has a safety catch.

Bad Points
Heavy weight will cause shooters of newer rifles a problem. Noisy spring action will deter prey.

General Comments
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.

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.
