“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

Written on: 01/11/2013 by davymole1 (12 reviews written)

having already got a hw95 in .22 and a mod 2250b plus a HW40 pistol in .177 I wanted somethink different so looking around on the net local RFD I found a S/H HW97k in blue laminate in .177 so of I go to wigan to have a look at first not to fussed about the colour of the stock its a blue/black/grey mixture but when I shoulder the rifle ++ felt right the same fealing I got with my hw95 which also was S/H.It shoots straight every time easier to load than a Tx200 which I also tried with the wider… 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

“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

Just got my HW97K home and I'm very pleased with it . I have always wanted a Weihrauch and this model is just what I wanted. Its very heavy but thats probably down to the quality of the build.... I was sold "superpoint" pellets with it ( 14.5gr)… 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

“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

“Power house”

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

Hi, I own this rifle and have chosen this maker for along time because of here excellnt accuracy and build, my own hw 97k has the old more slimmer and lighter hw 77 stock on it it swaps straight over with no altering and has a better feel than the lump it comes with and looks more pleasing to the eye out of all the sub 12ft lb air rifles I own including the pcp's this one holds my record for longest shot/kill rabbit it was 64ydsthe nearest any of the others have come to this was the BSA ultra… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/05/2011

I have just received my Weihrauch hw97k wood and what a fantastic rifle. I realise that people are complaining about the weight, but I think this is only a personal opinion, I love a heavy rifle for different reasons. I just want to say this is fantastic. I did shoot a few shots with this rifle after receiving it and there was nothing to complain about for within a circle of 15mm and a distance of 20 meters, every shot was within that circle.

Written on: 24/02/2011

Just did a HW57 review, this is the bigger brother 97 model also in 177 for flatter trajectory and field target competition capabilities. Except fairly heavy.
Mine came quite close to the legal 12ft/lbs in the summer.
Miner-mods can be made, as for all springers to soften recoil effects. Ones zeroed , the 97 is up there with the best of field -target quality rifles and should win competitions.
Eg- Will hit 15mm metal target kills at 55yds even with windy conditions from bench-rest or supported… Read Full Review

Amazing Gun for the money. with my .177 hw97k I am a match for my brother with his AAS410. I have fitted a sling because of the weight. but can still hit a 5p at 50m with a hawke sidewinder scope. great for hunting and for hft. have shot many different guns and so far the hw97k out of the box the TX200/Pro Sport, are the only match, but a hw97k with a light tune up is probably the best spring gun availible. 10/10… Read Full Review

“Anyone know good hunting pellets for this? ”

Written on: 19/08/2010 by robmclean (1 review written)

Anyone know good hunting pellets for this?

This gun is very very accurate, it is heavy but deal with it when you get power and accuracy like this gun provides what do you expect? People whinning about the weight should go to the gym, I shot from he shoulder a can at 50 yards no issues.

Overall awesome and well worth the money, buy second hand though makes it much more cost effective.

Written on: 09/08/2010 by sully123 (2 reviews written)

I own a hw97k in .177 cal, i also own a hw77k in .22 cal. both rifles are as good as one another apart from the 97k is the more modern version of the 77k and benefits from a higher cheek piece and a silencer and slightley more modern stock; both shoot as well as one another but the .177 97k has a flatter trajectory and makes a excellent rifle for shooting rabbits if the recoil is handled correctly. This rifle will shoot aswell as any PCP if the artillery hold is practiced to it's full when… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/05/2010

I have owned my .22 HW97K for around 7 years and I absolutely love it. It is very accurate and never loses power. Yes it is very heavy, in fact heavier than an AK47 or an M16 assault rifle but that does not bother me. You will need a good heavy duty leather strap to carry it round fields though. Mine has a Hawke nite eye 4-16 x50 and a laser which brings the total weight to about 12 pounds so not for light weight people.Best all round pellet for hunting or target use I found is the German… Read Full Review
