Good weight (heavy but balanced), the Weihrauch HW77 is Very Very reliable, strong built and can be handled roughly.
This rifle is more for the intermediate hunter/shooter, this is due to the weight, power and size.
I have owned my HW77 for over 12 years. This rifle has out performed many of the more modern competitors.

The Weihrauch HW77 has superb accuracy & balance, nice action only let down by it's weight which is tiring after prolonged use, otherwise hard to fault, a classic. Accuracy 10/10… Read Full Review

I bought this soley to shoot rabbits which where eating the garden. Works a treat. OK didn't like killing cute fury things but they were doing £100's worth of damage every day so it was either accept waste land or shoot bunnies. No brain'er.
Mine has a silencer too, so you get a muffled "whack" as opposed to "capow". Also use steel Prometheus hunting pellets. Accuracy is bang on, target always less than 35m, all a bit academic really, resting on a bean bag never miss… Read Full Review

With a current standard of 1.25 inch circles at 50 yards, this Weihrauch HW77 gun passes with a select few. My specimen is .177 caliber from the 80's (serial 1000--) that I upgraded recently with a Beeman kit. The fps reading with an 8 grain pellet was 815, now 875, an increase of from 11.8 fpe (perfect non-FAC for Europe) to 13.6 fpe. This is the best rifle I've seen for handling a variety of pellets, JSB 8.4/4.52, Crosman Premier Light, Crosman Copperhead Domes, Benjamin Sheridan Diablos… Read Full Review

My Dad bought a Weihrauch HW77 modified by Venom several years ago. After deciding that it was to heavy and that he would go for a newer rifle the gun was handed down to me.
While setting up the sights I was amazed at the accuracy, 1 inch grouping at 40 yards. Satisfied with the accuracy I took the gun out into the field. With ease I found myself dropping rabbits with headshots at 40 yards, I also found that though the gun was not as quiet as some P.C.P's it was quiet enough for me to take… Read Full Review

The HW77 is an excellent air rifle. Firstly it has a great underlever action, beautifully sensitive trigger (adjustable) and power- enough to take down small game. Furthermore it is accurate and above all is built to a very solid specification. However the rifle is very heavy and small shooters should take this into consideration. Also, the safety catch is not resettable, which is a drawback… Read Full Review

The Weihrauch HW77 was my first ever air rifle bought in 1987, used as a "trainer" in cal.177. Being the full length rifle, not the carbine, it's a bit unwieldy. But this sort of sacrifice can be borne in rejoice after some time. Quite early on, I could easily hit soda can bottoms at 70-75 meters with this rifle. It was allways very accurate even with cheap pellets. At some time I had it "venomized", which really transformed its action. The pistol grip-to-trigger distance is perfect for me… Read Full Review

the Weihrauch HW77 is a beautiful rifle which is well made (better than anything the Americans could hope to produce). It is amazingly consistant with accuracy. It has the best trigger pull of all seven air rifles i own. Unfortunately it is also the heaviest and here in Africa you need to walk long distances while hunting, but it's worth the effort.(4.1 kg)
H&N Diadlo Sport pellets gave me the best groupings at 40m.
I think the heavier the pellet the better (don't use all lead pellets).

I bought this Weihrauch HW77 air gun second hand a couple of years or so ago and can't really fault it. Sure it's heavy but if you can cope with the weight it really is a super gun. I personally prefer fixed barrels to break barrel type guns. A spring gun may be a bit dated but if it shoots straight, and let's not kid ourselves this gun can, why pay shed loads of money for something else when this will do the job… Read Full Review

Even in .22 I found the Weirauch HW77 air gun to be amazingly accurate. EVERY creature I pointed this thing at and pulled the trigger would keel over dead. The famous Rekord trigger really is brilliant, totally predictable. the general quality of the gun seemed to be very high. If you get the chance to buy one of these (especially second hand, they may be overshadowed by other guns now, but are the new guns REALLY that much better?) then go for it… Read Full Review

Have had a HW77 for about 15 months now. Have given it a full professional tuning though. Sitting, can group 5 shots into the size of a 5p at 30yds. Ofcourse, the gun could do the same prior to tuning, but now is more smoother to fire, by which I mean the 'twang'is very less. A new rifle is a bit twangy. Have heard that a HW77/97 is a bit rough out of the box compared to an Air Arms TX200, which could be true as I have a TX200 too. Overall, a good gun that could out shoot and out live me any… Read Full Review
