“Weihrauch HW97K arguably the best of it's type?”

Written on: 19/08/2014 by omnamatapaeic (3 reviews written)

Sorry about the user name...I was getting fed up as the site wouldn't let use several simpler alternatives!! Anyway... I am no expert on air rifles, this being my first since childhood. I am now 58. I have used shotguns of various calibres for rabbit and pigeon shooting over the years, and wanted something more discreet for the occasional pigeon or rabbit. What I hadn't reckoned on was the enjoyment I get from target shooting, just like my archery! Anyway, I haven't shot the alternatives, the… Read Full Review

“Accurate long range air gun ”

Written on: 09/02/2014

I'm 16 I have 6 rifles and the hw97k with synthetic stock really does the job with a £50 hawke scope and With FTT pellets I get sub 5p groups at 30 yards using a siting stance I have shot out to 45 yards and hit bottle caps I have also shot rabbits and woodies out to 20yards with it and it dispatched them brilliantly the gun is a accurate and powerful it will last a life time if looked after I trust the gun although their are many like it the one that is mine is more like an extension of my… Read Full Review

having already owning two other weirauch,s reading the reviews and trying someone elses rifle had to have one but in a different calibre so elected for a .177 saw a blue laminate thats the rifle I want so after a 100mile round trip its great just like the others I had shot,yes its heavy but this helps in balance the recoil seems less than my hw95 both great guns well pleased,you need to pick your scope carefull for weight and length of the scope so as not to hinder the opening breech.plus… Read Full Review

“Beeman hw 97 k”

Written on: 16/08/2013

I have put approximately 2000 pellets through my 97 k. It keeps getting better and better. Because I live at the beach I am limited to shooting 60 feet. This rifle makes one jagged dime sized hole at 60 feet. I have the synthetic stock and love the ergonomics of the pistol grip. I hate to even list any complaint because it is such a minimal difficulty but the firing spring is a bit twangy and buzzy. A tune up kit will most likely solve this if it is a serious problem for you. The good news is… Read Full Review

Had a tx200 hc mk2,sold it because of bad finances.really missed it, 3 months later went to gun shop to buy another and noticed hw97 synthetic and nickel model.As soon as i picked it up and shouldered it i had to have it.Knowing the ever increasing debate and competition between the English and the German company's about which is best i was happy to buy without shooting it. Sadly that was a mistake, after taking it home and shooting it i doubted my choice.10/10 on accuracy and build quality… Read Full Review

if you have health problems or a week back then i would not recomend.other wise i would surgest nothing else .the accuracy of these rifles are unreal.they are very good looking guns very very good quality.mine is 22 and i can sit poping bottle tops a 60 meters all day. i dont understand why people spend extra money getting these tuned because there is no need..the more pellets you put through the better they get when original mine has had thousands up on thousands of shots and its never missed… Read Full Review

“Best gun since hw77k”

Written on: 16/05/2013

After useing the hw77 since it came out in the 80s. This gun is spot on hardley any noise and hits the mark time after time. First time out with this rifle took rabbit out at 30 yards with out the animal noing what had happened so this gun is lighter than the hw77k but has the perfect power to do the job it was built for and thats why it gets five stars. Well done it will take another 25 years to beat this one… Read Full Review

“What a rifle!! ”

Written on: 18/04/2013 by GRT90 (2 reviews written)

I have just recently purchesed this rifle and I have got to say, what a rifle it is! Being German it is very well built and deadly accurate. This has got to be the best spring powerd rifle on the market. If you get the chance to buy one I suggest you do, You wont regret it. I also suggest getting it upgraded by putting a V-Mach spring in it. This will transform it from great to superb! Hope this helps any of you looking at getting one, it will never let you down… Read Full Review

“Hw97kt synthetic first air rifle”

Written on: 16/01/2013 by Pat_daly (1 review written)

Well for starters being in the Army I am a very keen shooter not exactly massive for hunting but for target shooting defiantly. Being a novice in the air gun scene I was reading reviews on all sorts of air guns and asking around and the majority were saying Weihrauch is the gun you want, so after some deliberation I decided to go with a HW97KT .22 synthetic with a Hawke Eclipse mil dot IR 4x16-50mm scope which I got at a very reasonable deal from The Airgun Centre in Essex last week. Being a… Read Full Review

“Problematic”

Written on: 13/10/2012 by Dansolo (2 reviews written)

I bought the nickel plated synthetic stock version in .22, to start with it was great for approx 500 rounds, then I started getting issues with accuracy, I've had it tuned and yesterday started to zero... Accuracy is still really off, I can't get a group of less than 3-4 inches at 30 yards! And no, it's not me lol (I can get 1/2 inch groups at 55 yards with my pro sport!) I have changed scope thinking it may have been that but no, still having accuracy problems, I have tried a couple of… Read Full Review

Dansolo's Response to Dansolo's Review

Written on: 13/10/2012

Edit; Ok, it seems that the pellets were to blame for the accuracy issues. I tried several pellets including AA Field Target, RWS Superdome's, H&N field trophy, and a couple more.
the ONLY pellet that this rifle likes are Webley Accupel, and boy does it like em :) pellet on pellet at 35yards, 1/2 inch groups at 55 yards, very accurate indeed. That said, I have never owned a rifle that was so fussy about pellets, now I know all rifles take to a certain pellet but the difference in this rifle was inconceivable; pellet on pellet with the accupel and struggling to get a 6 inch group with the AA field target's! this rifle is now as accurate as my HW100, R10 and my AA Prosport, I would now give this rifle a 5 star rating all round, just needed some time to understand her a little better

Written on: 30/09/2012 by WeihrauchKID (1 review written)

Just purchased gun yesterday, only fired one pellet thus far. And I have to sayits got some power, testing it in my garden from 10 meters away it punched straight through my wheelie bin :). Using Webley accupell 4.5 mm, can't wait to get the scope I ordered watch out rabbits. The gun is a little heavy but that shows quality to me plus it's German manufactured you can't get better IMHO, id rather it be heavy than flimsy… Read Full Review

“best by far !!! brilliant rifle....”

Written on: 05/07/2012

i have owned a fair few air rifles over the years, some good & some not so good but if your looking for the best then get yourself a hw97k, in my opinion they are head & shoulers above the rest by quite some distance, the quality & finish of these rifles is second to none, some people bang on about the weight of these rifles, it's true they are a bit on the heavy side but in part thats what gives the hw97 a feel of real quality ! if your looking for a top quality rifle that will last you a… Read Full Review

“Weihrauch HW97K Ultimate Spring Loader”

Written on: 23/08/2011 by macca1664 (1 review written)

Went and picked up my 97 last wednesday, I'd already bought an MTC Viper 8-32x60IR/FT Scope and left it with my local Gunsmith..(G Bates, Stafford). I took it Shugborough Shooting School where I zeroed her to 17mm at 40m. This took about 15 mins...Bear in mind, it will take 500+ pellets for the 97 to settle down, just awesome..The Scope is more than I could have wished for too, I am just blown away with this combo, however, the size of the scope makes it awkward to load the sliding breach, but… Read Full Review

i had the hw77k for 20 years but gave it my son and now i have the new hw97k - same gun in my eyes only difference being the fitted silencer and higher cheeked stock - great rifle full power and supreme accuracy all round - weihrauchs are in a league of their own - a little heavy but adds to the fun of these splended rifles - i have to give it a 10 - 10 all the way....h&n field target pellets shoot the best and fit nice and snug - a real legend… Read Full Review
