“Second hand HW90”

Written on: 28/09/2013 by Superten (1 review written)

I recently purchased an older secondhand HW90 from Scott at Livelines in Armadale and absolutely love it. I was out shooting targets with my friend yesterday and he couldn't believe how accurate the gun was. I was hitting pellet upon pellet at between 35 - 40 yards. It is slightly heavy and I prefer to sit while shooting but this one is a keeper, i cannot rate it enough. I dont know if they are all as good as this one or if i have just been lucky… Read Full Review

“DISAPPOINTED WITH THE PERFORMANCE. ”

Written on: 15/04/2013

I AM QUITE DISAPPOINTED IN MY PURCHASE SO FAR. THE IMPORTANT PART OF THE RIFFLE FOR ME IS THE ACCURACY. THE RIFFLE IS EITHER VERY PELLET FUSSY OR THE HIGHER VELOCITY CHARACTER OF THE RIFFLE IS HAVING AN EFFECT ON THE PELLETS. I HAVE THE STANDARD AIR TUBE ON MY TK WHICH IS 220MM LONG AND THE STATED 28 SHOTS POSSIBLE IS NOT CORRECT. I FIND THAT THE AMOUNT OF VERY TIGHT SHOTS IN A GROUP IS ABOUT FIVE AND I HAVE TO CONSTANTLY ADJUST USING MIL DOTS TO COMPENSATE. I WILL HAVE TO SPEND MORE MONEY ON… Read Full Review

“HW90 fac 26bar”

Written on: 21/12/2011 by ydarbd (3 reviews written)

Bought HW90 full power 26 bar in .22, picked up a 400psi/40bar raleigh bicycle shock pump and the theoben valve connector to vary the gas shock pressures.At the full 26 bar it was very loud and inaccurate from the box, cocking effort left my arm feeling like id a blood pressure band on. Bit of barrel droop prevented me getting the scope onto point of aim with a dampamount, ran out of elevation adjustment. I bought a sportsmatch windage/elevation adjustable mount and problem sorted, so far no… Read Full Review

barrel droop was too much to live with even with a compensating mount, angle of the scope so extreme that the front sight blurred the image through the glass.... so disappointed im taking it back to the dealer to address my issues. couldnt use the recommended dampa mount without ten pieces of taped over coke can as a scope shim... gutted

825 fps out of H & N Field Target Trophy, thats a tad under 22 ft lbs at the muzzle. only put through about 150 pellets and rifle still settling but nice tight groups of round half an inch at 45 yds with the wing gusting.....

Weihrauch advised take it back to place of purchase. I did just that and without any trouble received a replacement rifle. Excellent service and no problems with this one so far... will comment on group sizes when its properly run in.

“Weihrauch HW90 a class act.”

Written on: 29/05/2011 by grocott2964 (10 reviews written)

I brought mine second hand it had been used for hunting and was a little tatty on the stock but in perfect service. It's putting out 11.5 lbs/ft with wasps. Came with a great scope and bag. First day I had it I was putting very close groupings in at between 20 to 30 yards not far I know but good for a back garden. The HW90 is great like all the HWs there is one for everyone and after having a BSA comet (2007) I tried a friends HW80K and instantly fell for the great trigger, build quality and… Read Full Review

i will admit the hw 90 gas ram which has no spring just the theoben gas ram in it is one of the best hunting rifles ever made the reason the hw90 is so good is the German weihrauch frame it is solid and heavy and with the theoben gas ram or strut as some call it it makes a very good target shooter as-well. theoben guns have no weight and the strut they made never worked in them. weihrauch made heavy guns but they never liked the springs in them.they should have had struts in them the 90 is so easy to take up to 16ftb and it shoots better than at 12ftlb.my weihrauch 90 hc 2.2cal at 16ftb is as accurate as my air arms pro sport in 1.77 weihrauch 90 deadly accurate and deadly. weihrauch hw98 looks great but shoots like a pig trust me if you do get one leave a review on how bad it is. my guns AA pro sport in 1.77 and 2.2 AAs400 in 2.2 webley raider 10xs in 2.2 webley alecto pistol in 1.77 weihrauch hw90 hc in.2.2 and 1.77 at 16ftlb the ultimate hunting rifle take the advice i have given it is for you to buy the best gun and not buy a pig in a poke the guns i have all have 10/10 ratings whith 30 years of experience of buying rubbish

Written on: 17/10/2010 by 7upwestmids (1 review written)

bought the rifle after owning hw77.was tired of having spring powered rifles wear down,tried to combat this by cocking the hw77 when rabbits came out of warrens,so as not to leave spring cocked for too long,hard to do without scaring them off.when i heard that the hw90 could be left cocked for a while with no damage, i bought one.have worked in professional pest control for 15 years now as a marksman,carrying out commercial shoots at airports,factories etc.have a pcp,but whenever i didn't want… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2010 by astroscanboy (1 review written)

I owe several air rifles but this WEIHRAUCH HW90 is my beloved one.It is
powerful and with relatively heavy pellets is in my opinion the perfect
hunting gun.In 18 ft/lb,it can easily nail any small game and once I made
a perfect kill of a fox.It was a brain shot and the distance was 43 yards
(counted)But also it is a very beautiful gun and extremely accurate.I have
it in my possesion for 16 years and I faced no problem at all.In all aspects

i bought this gun before two months. it is very heavy and very hard to cock but i think it is one of the best hunting air rifles that ever made.i have shoot 50 shots and i dont have any problem until now. it is a very good built german rifle and it is a harm to have it. it worths every problem you can get from it because i think it is something extremenly different!… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/12/2009

yes it is abit on the weighty side but overall it is easily the best break barell rifle i have ever owned, it can loose power through the ram geting old or a valve leaking slightly but it outperforms any springer, only rifle that i think can beat this rifle on performance would be a hw100 but gas ram is the way foward (no chargeing)recomend the carbine version tho if not fac variant. sneaky hint buy .22 then fit new .177 ram puts power up, or the screw just below the sight turn it and it can… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/06/2009 by Plinker Ponker (4 reviews written)

The Weihrauch HW90 a great gun all in all, the only small floor is in the cocking- find it stiff and I have to give it a light tap to break the barrel. This is the only gas ram air gun I own and after using it for about 2 years now I think ill get another! It a good weight and it also sholders well. It is very accurate and has good stopping power. A great stylish gun for small prey. If you want a nice silent backyard gun then this is for you… Read Full Review

The Weihrauch HW90 rifle is a great performer weather in the sub fac 12ft lbs or the FAC version .excellent for hunting ,a dream to shoot tho it can be too heavy for some shooters. highly recomend fitting a sling and swivel to this gun if using for extended periods in the field.also recomend fitting a recoil absorbing "Dampa mount" system to prolong the life of most scopes.the trigger is excellent and faultless… Read Full Review

agree totally... bit wild out out of the box in fac format..... bleed out some of the 26 bar gasram pressure until you achieve the desired result..
