Daystate etc.I've shot for 35 yrs just got rid of my hw 100 kt because I wanted another springer so bought a brand new hw77 k in 177 and I can't get over how accurate this is it puts rws superfields on top of each other at 40 yds it beats all the pre charged guns for accuracy with ease.its heavy but that's what steadys a gun. I will keep this for good . (read more)

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 more)

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...

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

Amazing, bought my .22 in 1980, still looks and feels like new.
Rabbits, rats, mice, pigeons, nver misses.
This is German engineering at it's very best, nothing on the market
On purchase, mine produced 11.7ft/lb on test.
Changed the spring, better seals, full swervice etc in 2006, now produces
18.2ft/lb consistently. (read more)

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 more)

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.

Vey accurate. I owned a Webley patriot, a BSA Superstar and this HW77K and even though those other guns are fantastic, the HW77 I love because of it's accuracy and consistency shot to shot. The blueing is extremely professional. After owning this gun for over 4 years, it still looks new. If I have one complain, it would be the weight with a scope. But other than that, I would recommend this gun to anyone. You wont go wrong. (read more)

My 77 is 18 years old , it's been a consistently amazing weapon since purchase and has needed minimum maintainance throughout its life. Very accurate and effective for hunting in .22 , a little heavy but it's very well made and if you where to keep a few spare seals safe with a couple of spare springs I've no doubts that your descendents will be knocking off rabbits with your 77 in a hundred years or so - get one , keep it clean and it will be around forever.

Had my 77 carbine for 16+ years and its still as good now as when new, if not a little better, had the trigger refurbed and new spring and seals fitted, and this rifle is still a joy to shoot, 3/9/40 scope and dispatches rabbits at 25-30 yards easily. Can get tiring on long shoots due to weight but quality comes at a price, solid and dependable built to last forever. (read more)

I have had this rifle for around 15 years and fitted it with a walther 3-9x40 scope,the rifle being second hand when I purchased it. Apart from fitting a new main spring it has had nothing done to it.
It still shoots better than many of it's rivals. Power is constant at 12 ft/lbs and is a superd hunting rifle easily taking rabbits at 40 yards.
What more can you ask for from an air rifle ? build quality,accuracy,power,value for money this rifle has it all, overall a superb piece of kit.

If Carlsberg made spring air rifles then this would be the one. Build quality and consistant accuracy . Yes it's heavy but it helps control recoil'and you can alway's attach a sling for hunting. Awesome rifle for the pest control of rabbits in .22 make sure you hold the under lever when loading pellets into the chamber if you like your fingers. Buy one you won't be disappointed. (read more)

Bought my HW77.22 cal back in 1985 with my first proper wage packet and was the envy of my mates who had standard guns at the time. The one thing against it was the fact it was hard to insert a sabot round due to the slidind mech but once you managed it there was no better round for accuracy and penetration. As said before the weight was high but the balance more than made up for it and when I moved from the UK, I sold it but always thought there was no better made rifle then and is still a...

I bought my HW77 off a friend who has done a Maccarri V tune and downgraded the spring/power for FT shooting, it is the best springer I have ever owned, consistant 1 hole accuracy, very little recoil, easy to cock and a constant fps of 795 to 805.
Excellent German engineering, solid good quality Wallnut stock, its the only rifle I have that I cannot fault, even the heavy weight is made up for by the ballance.

This is my favorite Air Rifle ever. And I have owned other's. I think the .177 cal can do a lot of damage if you have a good Rifle and strong enough air piston.

Good weight (heavy but balanced), the Weihrauch HW77 is Very Very reliable, strong built and can be handled roughly.

Actually the Weihrauch HW77 is my first air rifle. Did some shooting with a gamo gun back in the 80's but this one is a different story. It's well built and gives a real good quality feel. In this price range I wonder if there's any other brand even getting close? Never thought a springer could be this accurate, I know there's also the hw97 out there but they are almost the same with the same internals. The hw77 comes with open aiming sight while the hw97 requires a scope. So you can get... (read more)

I bought an HW77, carbine, in .177 last week, having read all the reviews.
Fitted a Hawke 3-9x40 mil-dot scope and took it to an outdoor range with variety of the 'pop-up' targets up to 100 yards. I zeroed it at 35 yards and then started potting targets at different ranges...... Astonishingly, (considering it is only the 4th time I've ever used an air rifle), I was soon hitting targets at 60 yards once I'd got the hang of the scope. Some shots were inconsistent and I had a number of rogue... (read more)
