Weihrauch air rifles are becoming increasingly popular now due to their high quality and almost fanatical following. This has resulted 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, HW97kse, Hawke Scopes, MTC Scopes, H&N and JSB Pellets and aftermarket accessories together with air rifle tuning. Stock also includes leading PCPs by Brocock, Daystate, AirForce, Benjamin, Kral and a budget line of springers and PCPs 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. I hope to maintain the ENTIRE Australian range at all times plus a range of Customised & Tuned Weihrauchs.
As my business conducts 90% 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 as well 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 .177 and is 944mm long (37.165”) and weighing only 1.590 kilos (3lb 8.08oz), it is extremely lightweight when you consider the rest of the Weihrauch range.
This Weihrauch air rifle 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 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 and in .177 and .22 calibre 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, HW77K and HW97K
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 Weihrauch HW77K a barrel length of 370mm, making 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.
Both the HW77, HW77k and HW97K can be improved with a Vortek 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.
Weihrauch HW77SE and HW77KSE
I am so impressed with the finish and aesthetics of both the HW77SE and HW77KSE that it needs mention 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.
I can also supply any variation of HW77 that is available, as well as the HW97K, ex-stock. I occasionally 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 Blued steel or Stainless – this is what Weihrauch call it, but it is better known as a Nickel finish. I stock all the calibres in HW77 including .20 and .25. With the HW77K and HW97K, I am restricted to .177 and .22 calibres.
The Weihrauch HW80 I have in stock in the standard HW80 format in both .177 and .22 and the .25 calibres. The HW80 has proven not to be a very popular model of air rifle for reasons that are unknown to me.
The HW80 also shoots a bit faster than the entire Weihrauch air rifle models currently available except for the HW100 PCP models. For myself, I highly recommend this as a great all-around rifle that is perfect 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 Vortek 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 HW79K. I can also supply and fit a Vortek Tuning Kit to this model making it a viable and competitive springer.
Please note that currently, the Weihrauch HW97K is now available in Australia. The Weihrauch HW97K series is my biggest (spring air rifle) 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 breaches. 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 Weihrauch 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.
Below is the Weihrauch HW100T with a Hawke 8-32 x 56 Sidewinder Scope on it.
