Thoughts about the Weihrauch HW 100

Recommended Posts

Iv'e had mine three years now in .20 caliber, its been excellent, reliable and accurate, I like the side lever a lot.

The only small issue Iv'e had is every so often the rubber o ring on the magazine seems to dry out a bit making the pellet harder to load, easy solved by lubing occasionally.

I bought a lighter air cylinder for mine as its a heavy(to me)gun to cart around for a while, it hasn't got a huge shot capacity like a bottle gun but that doesn't bother me.

Considered an R10 at the time of purchase but chose the hw100.

That's good to know I have a hw77 which was my dad's. Can't fault the build quality from Weihrauch. And every review I have seen has said the same. Its nice to here what other people think though.

Cheers

Lovely colours on the woodwork mine has certainly had a few bumps and scrapes in its lifetime, but will easily take down a woody 50yards that's the main thing 😁

I bought a new HW100 all singing laminate stock, full length barrel etc 6 months ago, i had to wait 4 weeks for it,

Was it worth the wait ?

Nope......

I was glad to see the back of it, pellet fussy-rough and lumpy to cock, i could go on.

Maybe i had a Friday afternoon edition ?

My old BSA Scorpion is better, both Air Arms i own are better still, but after one niggle only, my Red Wolf is the dogs danglies !

Safe money spent would be on anything from AA :good:

Love mine (.177) its very accurate, not had a problem with pellet fussy as the first ones I tried worked so no need to try any others. The only con I can think of other that the price is it is heavy

I bought an HW100 S .177 new quite a few years ago, and have shot a few thousand pellets [JSB Exacts] through it,,,, never had an issue or problem with it. I even managed to thump the barrel into the ground once [don't ask 😏] immediately checked zero,,,, spot on, and has been ever since. As you say, superb build quality and a proper workhorse 👍 Heavy but easily manageable 😉

Had a hw100ks, loved the 5p groups hated the complete random flyers, it didn't like a dirty or a clean barrel, great mag and silky smooth side lever cocking, ultra pellet fussy and eventually discovered it had reg trouble, once sorted it went from loving jsb heavies to jsb RS but doubts wouldn't go away that I may have further trouble so it went. 

Would I have another? Probably not, least hassle I've had with any air rifle was a ridiculously boring & accurate S400.

Good too here that most of you think it's a good gun, seen as I ordered one a few weeks ago, when I had been looking at pellets tested though them all the reviews I watched seem too be they like the jsb or the aa, can't wait to get it and start shooting it. I'm not too fussed on how heavy it is as I've been use to my hw77 which is heavy. I do really hope it lives up too Weihrauch good reputation. 🤞 I was also looking at the aa but desided against them, let's hope I wasn't wrong for doing so.

Bought mine off a very obnoxious man who was extremely dissapointed with the accuracy and couldn't get rid of it fast enough.

What a pity he didn't clean the factory gunge out the barrel and realise he had a tack driver. 

😭

I had the HW100S , KS, T , in both .177 and 22, now i got a HW100BP ... Never had any problems with any of them, best PCP's in under sub 12 foot pound imho.

Like the good looking chap a couple of lines above, had my 100k for a million years and just bought a BP, even betterer (if that's not a word, it certainly should be).

Enjoy yours.
