“Great medium powered spring rifle!”

Written on: 06/03/2012 by Baelian (3 reviews written)

I was searching for a spring rifle to take my first steps on FT and HFT shooting, and I wanted it to be an underlever, since I'm not so much of a fan of break-barrel rifles. The HW97K was too heavy for me, the AA TX200 too expensive. So I got to the HW57. With 3.2kgs it is a medium-weight spring-piston rifle with an underlever cocking system and a really nice beech stock. Other than most underlever rifles, the HW57 does not have an open breech, but a pop-up loading port, which allows you to… Read Full Review

In my opinion you should have first looked up the specifics for this rifle before buying it. It is widely known that the HW57's power is a 'mere' 10FPE (and not fps!). The HW57 is marketed as a medium powered spring rifle, which makes it ideal for FT shooting. Furthermore it is not fair to rate this gun's accuracy with only 3 stars, because it is accurate enough. Seldomly have I had a spring-powered rifle that was more accurate, with such a crisp trigger, and so easy to cock than this Weihrauch. That leaves me to the conclusion that perhaps it was the handler, rather than the rifle, that should be rated so low for accuracy, handling and value for money. So it all comes down to expectations. Expecting an HW57 to do 16FPE or more is like expecting a VW Beetle to go 250 miles an hour. When you had done your research before buying, you would have known that this rifle would not meet your standards.

yes i made a typing error but when you have a rifle that fluctuates from 9.1 fpe
to 11.2 with the same pellets and i did do my research after i bought the rifle i heard a gunsmith say 10 fpe to 10.5. I am now also told the breach load makes the gun inaccurate but can be sorted but i did'nt buy the gun to spend on it to put it right. Also if you read the Hullcartridge spec it says 11.5 fpe.
I am not put off with this problem I have always bought Weihrauch and still will so now you can go back to your boss and tell him all is good.
The review is out and people should know the problems with this rifle
Have a good day

Written on: 24/02/2011

I have the big brother model 97, fancied a medium weight fun/hunting rifle from the same quality manufacturer. This rifle is fun and great for standing shots and mine came with about 10ft/lbs before breaking-in and in recent cold weather. I lightened the trigger with a screwdriver and fitted a 3*9*50 scope.
As lighter weight attention to avoid trigger snatch and correct breathing etc.

Written on: 21/02/2011

This is my third weihrauch air rifle having previously had a 35 & a 95k and i'm not dissapointed. Build quality is good as you would expect, it is an ideal rifle for the odd hunting excursion but also highly suitable for teaching my young nephew being light and with some good safety features.

Accuracy - I removed the open sights and fitted an ags 3-9x40. After the normal zeroing a partially bedded in rifle was consistently shooting 5pence groups at 25yards using an old tin of ely wasps. The… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/01/2011

The reason I've given the HW57 a 5 star on everything is because it's such a great gun. I've had mine just under a year now, in fact, probably a year now. I paid £350 for mine, brand new, full bluing, everything greased, all clean. I have to say, it is an absolute brilliant gun. When I first got it, I tried it out on a hard aluminium can, it went straight through it. I've dry fired it a couple of times, as the pellet has fallen out a couple of times. I mounted an old cheap scope on it which… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2010 by The Skipper (1 review written)

Having been taught to shoot by military riflemen, the HW57 is tops in my opinion! The "pop-up" breech is a wonderful feature, as you can actually unload the beast.
Excellent open sights. Light cocking effort. Accurate to the point of being almost boring. Fine lines. All of the aforementioned virtues sans the weight of an HW77. My 57 is a worthy sister of my 35K and 30S… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2010

Paid £229 for a new .22 version back in January wich I thought was good
value.Cocking action is smooth and light weight.Pop up breech is reliable and easier to load compared to underlevers that load direct into the barrel.
recoil is reasonable for the rifles weight with no nasty twangs from the spring on fireing.The trigger was a little rough when new,but after adjusting weight of pull and creep,and the passage of a tins worth of pellets it has become a pleasure to use. As for accuracy,it… Read Full Review

The Hw57 is a very good gun its light with full power,the bridge pellet holder is not to my liking especially if you use telescopic sights as it is easy to forget to close it before firing, other than that i cannot fault this great gun at around £260 tops its worth the money,i have a hw80k and a hw 97k which are much more expensive guns and i rate this gun in use on parity with the other two, if you want a good underlever thats pretty light and of full ower i recommend the hw57 you will soon… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/02/2009 by nickhuntsman (1 review written)

This is an excellent little springer! The rifle has nice compact proportions it looks and feels "right". The stock is full length, slim and elegant with a very nice rake to the pistol grip, a low well proportioned cheek peace and drop to heel that feels great in the shoulder, for both open and medium mounted scopes. I have had the hw57 in. 22, for about a month now, it is not run in yet (only fired about 350 rounds) but she is settling down nicely! I love to use a good set of open sights, and… Read Full Review

Having just purchased a 57 with a Richter Optik scope I can endorse the comments made. It's lighter weight makes it easier to use than my previous 97 which is a kilo heavier.

Overall, I like the gun for it's size and general quality. The Rekord triggers are always tops and most of the HW-57's don't suffer from the issues I ran into. This gun is highly tunable for those wishing to take it up another notch or two towards perfection. If Weihrauch could produce the stock with a shorter length of pull, I think many women shooters could handle the gun quite well, and the pop up loading port makes for very safe loading.

Written on: 03/08/2008

Overall a very accurate and powerful gun, i first shot it with open sights and was very impressed, getting myself pigeons and magpies all the time, but then i fitted a scope, and contained very good accuracy. hitting a 2 pence peice size from 30 meters. the accuracy would be better if the recoil wernt so high. It needs good clamps for scopes, single piece ones would be best. I would recommend this gun for people plinking in the garden and shooting small rabbits, rats, pigeons and magpies… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/07/2008 by Isambard (4 reviews written)

I bought the Weirhrauch HW57 in .22 caliber about 3 months ago for 215 pounds. I was impressed by how well balanced and light weight it was. The pop up breech was not difficult to use and once you get used to it it takes little time to load. You cock and reset the under lever and put in a pellet and push the breech down. There is less chance of trapping your fingers with this system. I used the iron sights only and was able to get 1 inch groupings at 25 yards. The open sights have a wider… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/01/2008 by Cognition (90 reviews written)

I've had this gun since September and thought it about time to write a quick review, however brief. I haven't used the gun a huge amount so my opinions here do not necessarily represent fact.

The Weihrauch HW57 is a nice gun, with good looks (although not the best) and a solid feel. As in the 'good points', the breech wobbles a substantial amount when the gun is cocked, so be careful. It's worth remembering that, especially in .177, this rifle is fiddly to load and has a long loading process -… Read Full Review
