After a lot of consideration I bought a 99S a couple of weeks ago.
I was unsure whether to go for the the 99 or the 95. The very helpful shop owner let me try both and went for the 99S carbine. I went for 99S because even though power wise it is the same as the 95 it was lighter and so would be better for long period use.
A positive point was it came with open irons which I like to use some times, the 95 didn't. It will take a scope as well so you get the best of both worlds.

I have had mine for a number of years now, and it hasn't let me down, I've shot against Fenmans Weihrauch 90's and the 95's I'm a Sring Gun man everytime
If there is a gripe with it, it is the loud muzzle report from the gun when it is fired, I live on a Left Wing Council Estate near Wakefield, and have had the Police say I had been reported for shooting in my own back garden.
I was looking for a Ratting gun, and got more than I bargained for with the Weihrauch 99S, it has no… Read Full Review

Bought a HW99S from the good folk at AirShooting, after a lot of deliberation. I have recently been granted permission to shoot over a friends land, and my old QB78 wasn't quite up to it. Initially looking for a BSA Lightning, but was thankfully advised out of it. Having held the two guns next to each other, there is nothing in it, the BSA rattled and felt loose and cheap, the Weihrauch just felt like quality. Zeroed it at the shop, and on my first outing took three bunnies with three shots… Read Full Review

Just bought one of these and am struggling to get the scope mounted properly because of the large degree of barrel droop. I've tried shimming the rear mount, but the amount of packing needed is excessive, so now I'm looking at getting an adjustable mount e.g. BSA Scopemaster 1 Piece Double Screw Fully adjustable - but these are not cheap at around £35 + p&p.
Having said that, I'm very pleased with the build quality and overall feel of the gun. I've only put half a tin of pellets through it… Read Full Review

I have only zeroed the HW99s so far and put about 60 pellets through it on a 25 yard indoor range, but straight from the box I was able to get one inch groupings in a very short time. I have a 3.9x50 scope fitted, which I think is a must have item. The rifle is light weight, although has a very solid well made feel and very comfortable even for me at 6ft 2ins and with long arms. I initially found the cocking action very stiff, but that soon got easier or I became used to it. The spring has a… Read Full Review

This gun is amazing! Have owned both pre-charged and springers before, and this has to be my favourite. It's deadly accurate, although it's a little twangy (i'm sure this will lessen as time progresses, as have owned the gun for 2 days now). At the price i paid of £240 with no scope, it wasn't a cheap gun, but compared to cometas and gamos and other cheaper guns, the difference is phenominal! I LOVE THIS GUN :D… Read Full Review

Excellent build quality and value compared to competitors,medium/heavy weight purely because of quality of construction,accurate and consistent power,automatic safety catch is a sensible feature. You will struggle to find a better air rifle for the money… Read Full Review

previously reviewed this Weihrauch HW 99s gun after a couple of days ownership and was impressed, im pleased to say it is now shooting brilliantly after 1500 shots or so. ive tried several brands of pellets and by far the best ive found are H@N ftt accuracy is good and down range whack is excellent for prey, body shots 45 yards! however recently went pigeon shooting and im having trouble stopping them out past 25 yds (confused) if any one has any advice on pellet type for this gun i would love… Read Full Review

Bought my Weihrauch HW 99s brand new for £190. I've had it for less than 12 months now and it perfoms as well as when I bought, the spring is a bit twangy but from a distance its hardly noticable.
I find that this gun is not very pellet fussy though all the pellets I've used are expensive ones.
There is a bit of recoil on it but you get that from all springers.
great gun go out and buy one now !… Read Full Review

The Weihrauch HW 99s is beautifully balanced and gave a tighter target group than another very well respected product on first acquaintance. Possibly because of the superb trigger action and minimal spring reaction. And I am a pensioner with an arthritic right shoulder. Don't try one if you have spent a little less or as much elsewhere. You will kick yourself… Read Full Review

The Weihrauch HW 99s is an awesome gun. Close range, long range, targets, hunting you name it and this gun does it better than any of my other air rifles. I have shot many birds and the only problem with this gun for hunting is that the spring makes a large 'crack' sound when you fire and that usually scares a few birds away. The recoil can also cause your aim to vary if you dont support the gun (ie. letting it rest on a table when shooting with no hand below the forestock) as it has low recoil… Read Full Review

I've had my Weihrauch HW 99s .22 for over a year now, it's shot well over 1500 pellets and it's still as sound as the day I bought it. I paid £265 for mine and that was with a rifle bag, silencer, 500 pellets, scope mounts and a Hawke Reflex 3-10 x 44 scope. I love this rifle so much, would like to upgrade to a pre-charge jus so I can have bolt action. Good points are accuracy, strong build, virtually no kick… Read Full Review

The Weihrauch HW 99s has good, solid German workmanship. Trigger has remained consistent and dependable for 10 years.
Very accurate when not held too tightly.
I keep meaning to put it across a chronograph, but am pretty sure that even after all the use it has had, it is still pushing out the .177 pellets at close to the legal 12 ft/lb limit. My first shooting love is that of full bore target rifle, shooting from 300 yards back to 1000. My 21 year old son has also caught the bug and has shot… Read Full Review
