Weather you are pinking at tin cans or knocking pegions of out trees by any standard the Weihrauch HW 30 is a great gun. I purchased my HW 30 in .22 calaber and i find it a joy to shoot. I find that eley wasps are the best pellets for it but it does not seem to have enough womth to shoot a hollow point with great power. It would make a great starter rifle for a child as it is light and easy to cock. I won't be selling mine any time soon. I would defently recomend that you buy one weather... (read more)

I bought my HW30 25 years ago. It, along with my Sheridan were my only airguns as I went through my firearm stages. Blackpowder to pistol, to high power rifle, down to rimfires again, then finally airguns again. Life's circle. Excuse the philosophy.
Anyway, after 25 years and thousands of shots, I thought I would give it a much needed tune up since it had gotten twangy. My gun had the old leather seals which will last a lifetime. I thought I would go all out however and replace the... (read more)

The Beeman R7(Weirauch HW30S imp.) gets a TON of good press on the net, and deservedly so. Whenever anyone asks about the "little-bro", HW30, the standard response is usually some form of
"Spend the extra $ for the R7 and get the Rekord trigger.."
Well, I don't really think that's altogether necessarily true. :)
I recently picked up an HW30, and I thought I'd post my observations.
How does it differ from the R7?
The stock has no real rise on the comb, and a subtle, RH cheek piece....

I recently purchased a Weihrauch HW30 MkII in .177 calibre Air rifle for my son as a training rifle. I had the rifle tuned by Sandwell Field Sports to reduce recoil, spring noise and dieseling. Having fitted an AGS 3-9x40 Mil-dot scope in two piece mounts (using the recoil arrestor holes provided in order to avoid scope creep) I set about zeroing the rifle at 20 yards using RWS Hobby flathead pellets. To say that the rifle is impressive does not do it justice. Using a light hold to let the... (read more)

Have an older model HW30. Mine has the adjustable Rekord trigger and no safety. Converted the leather piston seal to synthetic and installed a Maccari mainspring w/JM heavy tar- what a smooth shooter and accurate to boot! (read more)

My son received this Weihrauch HW30 equipped with an RWS 4 X 32 scope for Christmas and immediately fell in love with it. We live on a farm and this weapon is accurate and powerful enough (675 fps) to eliminate nuisance birds (pidgeons and crows) found in our barn! The rifle is lighter than most and easy to handle. The rifle is a joy to use and I have found it to be extremely accurate at 10 metres (5 pellets within a 2.54 cm spread) and I'm only a novice shooter! I would recommend this and... (read more)
