Weihrauch Air Rifles at Gunroom
Weihrauch air rifles are becoming increasingly popular now due to their high quality and almost fanatical following, resulting in me supplying these air rifles all over Australia as my business grows over the internet with this Gunroom site effectively being my shop window.
At Gunroom I am stocking all Weihrauch air rifles bought into Australia, including the HW77se and HW77kse, Hawke Scopes, H&N and JSB Pellets and after market accessories together with air gun tuning. Stock also includes the leading PCPs by AirForce, Evanix and a budget line of springers made by Cometa.
As for the Weihrauch air rifles in stock, their availability is also very sporadic as they come from Germany and orders are seldom filled first time around. With this in mind, I am increasing our stock of Weihrauch air rifles to carry me through between Wholesaler Imports where I hope to maintain the ENTIRE Australian range at all times plus a range of Customised & Tuned Weihrauchs.
As my business conducts 98% of our sales via the Internet, I do not carry ammunition (except air rifle and air pistol pellets) as shipping ammo across the country in small lots is prohibitively expensive. With the Police changing the rules with regular monotony, shipping firearms too is becoming a challenge.
This is the baby of the Weihrauch line up and is well suited for someone learning to shoot, especially youngsters and teenagers alike or someone with a small stature. It comes in both .177 and .22, being 944mm long (37.165”) and weighing only 1.590 kilos (3lb 8.08oz) it is extremely lightweight when you consider the rest of the WeihrauchWeihrauch range.
This air gun could be used to control small vermin but I see it more as a learner’s air rifle or one used for plinking and practice. One must bear in mind that the HW25 is quite small on the scale of things and with myself being just over 6 feet in height, I have issues firing it as it is a bit small for me. I find it more controllable and comfortable when fitted with a small Hawke Scope or similar.
The HW25 still comes with an auto safety, high visibility sights and a plain but quality styled stock with a shaped shoulder butt.
This is another lightweight air rifle well suited for a learner who is serious about target shooting as it comes with interchangeable foresight inserts, with a tunnel sleeve protector over the foresight and a Rekord trigger, the same as used in most of the large Weihrauch spring powered air rifles.
The HW30s will also suit someone wanting to control small vermin in an orchard for example, as this is a lightweight and compact air rifle that allows the shooter flexibility and ease of control in a confined environment such as a shed or a busy orchard. Available in stock in .177 at this time with .22 calibre on back order at time of writing this.
This rifle is 984mm (38.75”) in length and weighs in at 2.60 kilos (5lb 11.712oz) while still maintaining the high standards we have come to expect from Weihrauch. I find it very easy and comfortable to use and would definitely recommend it to any adult just breaking into the air rifle scene. It also comes with an ambidextrous stock, butt pad, quality steel sights and automatic safety.
The HW50 presents well with very nice chequering on the stock and light weight features (for a Weihrauch anyway, as their guns tend to be on the heavy side). This air rifle is available in .177 and .22 ex stock and should be considered for those of you entering the air rifle market on a budget or looking for their first air gun or a back-up air rifle.
The balance, feel and finish of the HW50 will be the first thing one notices when handling this air rifle as it is a credit to Weihrauch. It comes with adjustable foresight inserts with a tunnel sleeve, Rekord trigger assembly and a comfortable Sporter stock. Well suited for target shooting and vermin control alike.
Weihrauch HW77 , HW77SE, HW77K and HW77KSE
The Weihrauch HW77 model has been around for many years and sports the same basic mechanics as the Weihrauch HW97 series that out sells it many times over. The HW77 has a barrel length of 470mm and the HW77K a barrel length of 370mm, which are both longer than the HW97k that comes in at 300mm.
The HW77 provides great accuracy over longer ranges thanks to the additional barrel length, however, the correct selection of pellets is still mandatory if you want consistent results although it does respond well to more pellet types that the HW77k or HW97k.
Other differences between the HW77 and HW97 are the stocks, with the HW77 having a more pronounced cheek plate that accommodate both right and left handers very well. Both the HW77 and HW97 can be improved with a V-Mach Tuning kit (new spring, guide and washer assembly – in stock) that reduces the ‘twang’ effect and makes for a smoother shooting and a more accurate air rifle.
HW77SE and HW77KSE
I am so impressed with the finish and aesthetics of both the HW77SE and HW77KSE that it needs mentioning in this article. Both these rifles have a laminated stock of exceptional quality, finish and feel. So if you want a Limited Edition Weihrauch, then I suggest that you take a look at these two. Here is an image of both the HW77SE and HW77KSE together so you can compare them more readily..
These air rifles sport a green/grey/wood coloured laminate that compliments them remarkably well in my view. Note the high ambidextrous cheek piece and the steel sights as standard.
As I can no longer procure the HW97K I am putting my energies into the HW77K which is basically the same air rifle, with exactly the same internals but 70mm more on the barrel length. I can supply a barrel shroud, very similar to that fitted on the HW97K, with the only difference being that the barrel can be seen slightly recessed behind the front of the shroud. All said an done, it looks very, very similar and is available at cost price with free fitting for new purchases of any HW77 series air rifle.
I can also supply any variation of HW77K that is available, ex-stock. That is I have the HW77K in 2 Sporter stocks, Wood Thumbhole, Blue/Grey laminate, Green/Grey laminate and Synthetic.
To add to the choices I can also supply the HW77K in Blue steel or Stainless – this is what Weihrauch call it but it is better known as a Nickel finish. Then calibres, I have .177, .20, .22 and .25 calibres, all in stock. In effect, I have ALL the models shown for the HW97K and then some.
The Weihrauch HW80 I have in stock in the standard HW80 format in both .177 and .22 and the .25 calibres. I also have in stock the HW80K air gun that comes in at 1065mm being 92mm shorter than the HW80. The HW80 has proven not to be a very popular model of air rifle for reasons that are unknown to myself. In talks with Steve at V-MachV-Mach Air Rifle Tuning, his comments were that this is one of Weihrauch’s best and most robust models made. Go figure. Please note that the HW80K is very limited.
The HW80 also shoots a bit faster than the entire Weihrauch air rifle models currently available with the exception of the HW100 PCP models. For myself, I highly recommend this as a great all round rifle that is great for hunting and vermin control due to its’ fast and easy ergonomic loading ability, being a ‘break barrel’ style air rifle. It can also be tuned successfully using V-Mach Tuning Kits that I stock.
I carry this Weihrauch model in both .177 and .22 and it is also the standard ‘break barrel’ air rifle design much like the HW25, HW30, HW50 and HW80. I am only carrying this model in .177 and .22 due to its limited popularity as it is competing with the very popular HW77K. I can also supply and fit a V-Mach Tuning Kit to this model complete with a 3 slotted Race Brake.
Please note that currently the Weihrauch HW97K is NOT available in Australia and I am leaving these details on this site for the benefit of those of you who currently own a HW97k or are considering acquiring a used one.
The Weihrauch HW97K series was definitely my biggest mover as its’ popularity seems to be influenced with the aid of positive feedback on the Weihrauch owners forum no doubt. Below you will see the Weihrauch HW97K (Top) and the HW97T (Thumbhole) (Lower Image), both in stainless, followed by a blued version on a Synthetic stock, known as the HK97 Blackline.
Weihrauch HW100S, HW100T and HW100KT
The Weihrauch HW100 air rifles series are PCP (Pre-Charged Pneumatic) air rifles and arguably the best air rifles that Weihrauch make and definitely amongst the top PCP air rifles on the world market today.
These operate with a High Pressure Cylinder under the barrel assembly that can be filled with a High Pressure Compressor, a SCUBA bottle or a dedicated Hand Pump.
Note: The pressures required to fill these cylinders are very dangerous as they are in the region of up to 3000 psi (200 Bar) and so specialised filling equipment is mandatory.
Once again, the finish on these PCPs is extremely high with high gloss black finished breach heads. They are not available in Stainless Steel and come in .177, .20 and .22 calibres. They also come with 2 magazines of 14 shots apiece and the only reloading effort required is the cycling of a small lever on the right side of the breach, basically no effort at all.
I stock the HW100S and HW100T with the HW100KT being limited stock. I recently sold a HW100KT and was informed that the Customs Department is not so happy about letting them in again, even though the Police Firearms Branch has no objection. Time will tell I guess as to whether I can get some more through.
Clients are telling me that they are getting consistently around 40 shots from a cylinder before the ‘feet-per-second’ starts to decay. The cylinders can be filled while still attached to the rifle.
Below is the Weihrauch HW100T with a Hawke 4-32 x 56 Sidewinder Scope on it.
Stock Duplicating Machine
In March 2015, I shall be taking delivery of a Clone 4DClone 4D Stock Duplicating machine whereby I shall be making customised stocks predominantly for the Weihrauch range of air rifles and their rim and centre fire rifles.
