As I am new to Air rifles - I spent a few days researching the vast range that are available. However - as soon as I came across this in my Local Gunshop I new it was the one for me!! I did try a a variety of other rifles - Co2 and break barrel to make the best decision - but....... As soon as I held the Weihrauch HW90K I was in love :) The solid build quality, the weight, the awesum trigger action and the automatic safety catch were just a few reasons why I purchased this beauty. I... (read more)

My HW90 was for sale second hand for £100(local free ads). Seemed like a bargain, but on further inspection the stock was tatty and the barrel had been cut down. A new .177 carbine(screw cut) barrel was obtained from Hull Cartridge through Duncans of Hull, along with a Weihrauch silencer.
I fitted a Hawke 3-9x40 scope (cheap off ebay!)and refinished the stock myself which now looks very good, probably due to the quality of the stock as much as my efforts.
I bought the gas ram fill hose from... (read more)

i shoot mainly with a 20bore shotgun and my dad owns a farms and we needed a quit gun to keep the rabbit, pidgeon and rook population down only last weekend i shot a rook at 55 yards and it is capable of killing rabbits cleanly out to 65 yards away as i have done and im only 11 so can you imagaine how far an adult would be able to kill a rabbit. overall its a truly amazing gun and its accurate gun

I've just purchased an HW90K, after getting rid of my umarex 850 (didn't like it - plastic and a pain to keep buying those cannisters) , which is what i can compare it to...
As has been said elsewhere the HW90K is a man's gun - not lightweight, but the sort of gun you'll keep for 20 years (I plan to!) Makes the Umarex look like a pop-gun!
I purchased this rifle to remedy my grey-squirrel problem. Although I'm still getting used to it & shooting targets there is no doubt that it will do... (read more)

I love Weirauch Air Rifles, i have owned many and not one of them was a bad rifle.
I wanted a Gas Ram power plant but i didnt want a Theoben as A) they are overpriced and B) the triggers are not a patch on the Rekord trigger unit used by Weirauch in thier models (i appreciate that the trigger unit on the HW90 was made specifically to cater for the marriage of the Theoben Gas ram and the HW90K build quality, but it is still better then the trigger unit on a theoben.

I got this gun in 25 Caliber for bigger animals, Raccons, possums, Woodchucks. So far all one or two shot kills all to the body. No lost animals could not be happier. Tried different pellets. 30 gr kodiacks 552fps, I don't like the heavy pellets but they are accurate. 24-25gr pellets 615 fps. I like the silver arrow pointed pellets for raccons, excellent penetration in the heavily built animals. All one shot kills all the raccons and very accurate, much better than my standard velocity 22... (read more)

It's been a long time since I've owned an air rifle in fact it's been about 23 years so I wouldn't call myself a sharp shooter by any means. But with my Weihrauch HW90K with 3x9x50 scopes I don't have to be. I zero my scope at about 75 ft and can hit a target roughly the same size as a 50 pence piece every time. Please don't be fooled into thinking I achieved that overnight, it has taken me a while to get used to the weight and the recoil of this rifle. I have probably shot about 1000... (read more)

Firstly I must say that I have not owned an HW90k since 1998! However, I can say that I have had some of my greatest hunting moments while looking down the barrel of this great rifle. Having bought a TX200HC one Xmas and finding it to be awkward and slow to reload in the field I decided to trade it in for the more workmanlike HW90k. At first I was a little disappointed in its apperance, not a bad reflection of the 90, more the stunning finish of the TX I had owned. However, in the field, its... (read more)

The pressure in the gas ram is 26 bar and I use H&N match pellets. Anyone had the same problem and any idea about what is wrong with this gun?

This rifle is very accurate with low recoil, great trigger and safety catch and superb build quality. Buy one and you will not regret it. (read more)

It has taken me 3 months to get used to the 'feel' and heavy weight (11lb) of the Weihrauch HW90K rifle and the gas ram action's recoil, I had only previously used spring powered rifles (BSA Meteor and Webley Stingray) the recoil is very different and feels like a 'straight line' kick back into your shoulder.

I purchased the Weihrauch HW90K second hand and found that it was heavier than I expected, the main reason I chose this rifle was because of the Theoben gas ram system which I find very useful in the field as unlike a spring rifle you can leave the weapon cocked without power loss for a long time.
I found the stock was very attractive and it looks much more like walnut than beech due to its dark colour and deep texture. As I shouldered the rifle I found that it seemed to loose a lot of... (read more)

I've found the Weihrauch HW90K air rifle to be very accurate at the standard 11.8 lb/ft and very able to make kills upto around 35 yards. At power levels much above this however recoil becomes a little harsh and even from sand bags groups become a larger. This kind of defeats the object of trying to make it effective at longer ranges. In standerd trim as a stand alone rifle however, it's top value for money. (read more)

Sorry guys but I really had high expectations of this .22 rifle after all I read. The recoil is harsh and at 21fpe the rifle is very difficult to shoot accurately. I downtuned it to 13fpe and accuracy improved dramatically. If you buy this rifle the Theoben HE pump is mandatory in order to experiment with power levels I really wanted a high power springer in .22 but it seems that the Air Arms Pro Elite is the one to go for. The stock on the AA is also so much nicer. Anyway I sent the HW90... (read more)

Since purchasing the Weihrauch HW90K rifle 12 months ago i have been very impressed with the rifles all-round capabilities. Its accuracy is outstanding, i have been able to consistently hit 30mm discs at 40m using .22 accupell. The rifle also fires very smoothly with nearly no recoil, these 2 qualities are down 2 its H.E Theoben gas ram. Out on the field the rifle performs outstandinlgy and with its excellent accuracy always results in a clean kill.

I bought a second hand HW 90K a few weeks back and was instantly impressed by it's solid build quality and high quality of finish to all it's parts. It's accuracy is exceptional for a break barrel recoiling rifle and I am able to shoot on equal terms alongside shooters using rifles costing 4 times as much at the local gun club. The trigger unit is both atractive and classy to look at, as well as being the smoothest I have used (and I have fired some pretty expensive air weapons). The safety... (read more)

The build quality is excellent, I reckon Weihrauch must have bought a load of old world war two panzer tanks and taken the tracks off because its built like a panzer and has the firepower like one , oh and the weight as well.
