“this is the best break barrel ever”

Written on: 15/01/2013 by hitnmiss (1 review written)

this is the best break barrel ever, had it a few weeks now and its spot on, smooth cocking, easy loading crisp locking, well weighted, and looks fantastic. but thats not the best things about it, accurate, accurate,accurate, feel and hold spot on , this is an adults rifle and being a springer needs to be held correctly , i could,nt fault this rifle. 10 out of 10… Read Full Review

Bertie's Response to hitnmiss's Review

Written on: 18/01/2013

Having shot a few Weirauchs, and had an HW80 for some months, I've not the slightest doubt your description of your HW98 is all present and correct apart from one word...'best'.

What you are really saying is that it is 'best' for YOU! Yes, it IS an adult rifle and being so it would be totally inappropriate for a shooter who, by virtue of his physical attributes, would find it next door to impossible to handle. So if he had two air rifles to choose from - my much smaller and lighter IZH 61 and your larger and heavier HW98, the obvious choice would be my gun thus making it 'best' for HIM!

Needless to say, the HW98 would make a meal of the IZH 61 in hitting power over distance alone, but if our imagined shooter finds it impossible to SHOOT your HW98, then it is of no use to him and therefore on this occasion the much smaller and lighter Russian IZH 61 would be 'best'.

All that aside - I'm sure your claim, "this is the best break barrel ever" about the HW98 would be contested my many, and I have to say that I wouldn't know but I do thank you for your review!!

“Save your money, buy this rifle FIRST!”

Written on: 23/11/2012 by Smithy98 (1 review written)

If only I'd bought this rifle 32 years ago, I could have saved a lot of money and time. I've had 46 air rifles, some of the best money can buy, some of which cost the thick end of a grand but I've never had a rifle shoot as accurate as the one I have now. This one can hit a penny at 62 meters no problem, be it off a soft rest and can group five shots inside a drawing pin head sized circle at 50 meters regularly… Read Full Review

“Weihrauchs are expensive air rifles, but being German...”

Written on: 20/09/2007 by AirborneUK (15 reviews written)

Weihrauchs are expensive air rifles, but being German they extremely well built (In other words, you get what you pay for!)

I have owned the HW98 rifle for well over 12 months and have found it to be quiet, accurate (although my ability is at question on that topic), and a beautiful looking rifle, but a bit on the heavy side.

After a day hunting in the field i have found the bull barrel on this rifle to be a bit to heavy for my liking, keeping it steady when shooting at long range requires… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/06/2007 by MauriceEdward (2 reviews written)

Definitely the best springer I've ever owned. Superb accuracy and the stock enables the perfect sight picture. The excellent overall balance means that the weight is easily managed.the action is so smooth if I didn't know better I would think it was tuned. The cocking stroke is like silk and the recoil on firing is controllable and predictable, which helps the superb accuracy. What can anyone say about the reckord trigger unit that hasn't already been said. It is simply the very best trigger… Read Full Review

“Weihrauchs most expensive break barrel. The Bull...”

Written on: 20/12/2006 by theshooter (16 reviews written)

Weihrauchs most expensive break barrel. The Bull barrel is unfortunatly just a steel sleeve, adding to the weight, unlike air arms prosport, which is a shrouded, silenced barrel. The 98 stock is fantastic, being adjustable for perfect scope/eye alignment. The stippling on forend, and pistol grip aids grip, pity Weihrauch didn't offer this stock for their other models, even as an option. Under the stock, the 98 is basically a 95, minus Bull barrel. If you fancy tuning, good kit can be obtained… Read Full Review

“Well what can i say? Wow! ”

Written on: 01/12/2006 by TheRabbitShooter (1 review written)

Well what can i say? Wow!
What an amazing gun!! Mine arrived two days ago (the .177 version) but i had to wait till today to get a chance to shoot this baby. I mounted my Hawke 3-9X50 scope and went into my garden to zero it in. After 10 minutes i was putting pellets into a bullseye (inch wide) at 35 yards. This gun is so accurate the only possible fault could be the shooter.
Next I come onto the looks. It is a beautiful gun. The stock just oozes with beauty. The adjustable stock puts your… Read Full Review

I'm about to take possession of my second Weihrauch HW98 gun for HFT and one for FT rigged via different scopes. This is a top gun and I would recommend to anyone who can handle the weight. The best thing is the stock. I'm a lefthander so struggle to find a good stock lock until I got this gun. That is, if you're a lefty, get one of these, you won't be sorry… Read Full Review

Perfect rifle for HFT shooting.
The best break barrel ever made (maybe Webley Longbow may be a competitor, but it's more expensive and with no adjustable stock).
Very good quality materials and precise made… Read Full Review
