“Quality Kit”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by SteveH68 (1 review written)

Most avid airgunners know just how good the Weihrauch HW77 and HW97 series are so I wont wax too lyrical, indeed see a little plagerisim below "The HW77 is one of the first and finest underlever field target rifles ever made. Born in the famous Weihrauch plant in Germany, it has been a popular rifle for decades. It has the famous Rekord trigger and will always be more accurate than anyone shooting it." I had my first original HW77 rifle as a young man, sadly sold that in 1987 but bought a… Read Full Review

“HW77. Finest of the best air rifles of all.”

Written on: 11/10/2013 by simona050 (4 reviews written)

I bought my HW77 brand new about 5 years ago. It is a .22 standard length rifle and my one regret is, I never bought one sooner! This has to be the most accurate, beautifully made spring air rifle you can buy. It isn't as heavy as some believe and it will put Air Arms field 5.52mm one on another as far as I can steady my rifle in aim to! There is nothing I don't like about it at all. I won my very first-attempt HFT competition with it and it puts down vermin on my farm-shoot humanely and… Read Full Review

“Got it Free :)”

Written on: 27/07/2013 by HunterLee2600 (1 review written)

It is the best gun I have ever owned. The stock is beautiful, and I love how accurate it is. I cleaned up an old one that a neighbor gave to me that had a broken breech seal, and now its shooting even more accurate than my grandfathers brand new $300 Crossman. The only drawback is that, since I hve the plain hw77 and not the hw77k, I had to put a scope on it for the lack of rear iron sights… Read Full Review

“Weihrauch HW77”

Written on: 01/04/2013

The HW77 is fantastic gun if you are a target shooter, but if your a hunter the only the only letting it down is the front heaviness. The front of the gun which is heavy compared to the back which is light is a problem that can effect accuracy if you do not have a tri/bi pod. If you can hold it still you can do anything with it, I have shot a lot of rabbits with this gun… Read Full Review

“Most accurate air rifle I've ever owned.”

Written on: 20/01/2013 by Laverdabru1116 (19 reviews written)

Bought my HW77 .22 second hand, but fairly new, not long after they came out. It came with a 4x40 Nikko Stirling sight. It was a revelation after owning many break barrel air guns, & all the air rifles I have bought since have been under levers. None of them have matched the 77 for accuracy. Bad points - Very heavy, 9 lbs+ before scope. Noisy, without a silencer, which adds even more weight. My one had a very slightly bent underlever, which I did not notice until someone else pointed it… Read Full Review

“Back after a long gap.”

Written on: 21/11/2012

I have just come back to airguns after a lay off of over thirty years. Back in 1980 I had a HW80 which was given a cropped barrel,silencer and a venom tune, all by the inventor of venom at Lye gunshop, Trapshot. I have recently purchased a second hand HW77 in .22 from my local gunshop, and to say I'm pleased is an understatement!, I'm thrilled. The rifle is superb, heavy,yes, but so well made it's a treat to hold. It's a pleasure to shoot because of it's accuracy and within a short time I am… Read Full Review

“Love this rifle!”

Written on: 20/11/2012 by Keith10284 (1 review written)

A mate of mine has a 77k & I love it. I tried to buy it off him but he wouldn't sell it & I can't say I blame him. It's super accurate, built like a tank & feels great in the shoulder. The moment my local gun shop (the owner is a mate of mine) mentioned he has one, I said "can you hold it for me? I'll have it" it's in mint condition & only £275 with a Tasco 3-9x40 scope. I can't wait to bring her home!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/04/2011

started hunting a year ago. first gun was the hw77. couldnt believe how consistently you can shoot after just a few days pratice. had to buy a BSA scorpion t-10 as i often go on long hunting journeys and the 77's weight issues are just too impractical. but if your going for a cheeky evening shoot and your looking for power without losing the accuracy the 77 is undoubtedly the best there is… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2011

Back in the 80's the HW77 came to dominate the FT scene, I didn't own one back then (couldn't afford it). I'm just getting back into FT (well, HFT) now and I bought a PCP rifle - a Gunpower Stealth to be exact, what a POS, put me off PCP for good. So I picked up an old HW77 at the Newark Show for £190. It went to the gunsmiths and came back with a shortened barrel (12" super carbine style), tuned trigger and new spring and seals.
I took it to the range at Huthwaite - OMG it's superb! Now I can… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2010 by simona050 (4 reviews written)

Even in this age of pre charged pneumatic rifles, and the formidable accuracy their recoiless shooting action affords even a rank novice shooter, there are still a few spring rifles that can match and outshoot them in the right hands. The Weihrauch HW77 underlever spring piston air rifle is the top rifle of them all. This magnificent rifle has been in-production since the mid 1980s and set the accuracy standard all other air guns had to meet. It gave birth to HFT and proved so accurate there… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/08/2010 by weihrauchman (4 reviews written)

Well as a world war II buff and a keen airgun shooter I asked myself " what air rifle would german tiger tank ace Michael Wittman have used on the days when he wasnt blowing up russian T34's - answer: a Weihrach HW77.

This is the finest in german engineering built into an artillery piece of an air rifle - power,accuracy and you just know when you handle one for the first time that you will still be using this as your 1st choice rifle in 20 years time.

Ive had one on loan from a friend now… Read Full Review

Are you claiming that if I give my arms a long rub with this air rifle it would ease, or maybe cure arthritis ?

Might be something in this alternative medicine after all! :-).

Written on: 20/12/2010

I found this review not helpful because... Just the sort of claptrap we airgunners could well do without. If the claim of a 120 yard head shot is true, which I doubt very much, then this writer is guilty of the worst kind of irresponsible behaviour. Any proper hunter knows that with an air rifle, even an FAC one, you NEVER shoot at any living creature at more than around 40 - 45 yards maximum. This is the sort of idiotic claim that'll get our hobby/sport banned - the ban everything brigade will believe it, however ridiculous it is.
