I purchased this Weihrauch HW 70 break barrel spring air pistol because it seemed well made, classic and timeless in design. Although it's a great overall plinking air poistol, I was dissapointed with the trigger mostly. It sure doen't feel like the advertised two-stage trigger. I found it temperamental and hard to adjust. The accuracy is so-so. My Nemesis shoots rings around it.
Although overall the gun is quiet and has nice recoil, it does produce some internal vibration noise which makes it feel less solid and kills the fantasy of a solid european air gun. The grip and stock are good but it is made out of composite (I didn't read the fine print and thought it was wood).
Oh well, still a nice gun to have in your collection. However I did not see the fabled Weihrauch quaility come through in this gun.
