Things I liked: Weihrauch quality throughout, beautiful bluing, nice trigger, this is a sweet little shooter. It is like a scaled down old-style HW30. A perfect rifle to teach your kid shooting skills & safety. This little rifle is a winner, light, handy, accurate, even adults like myself think it's a fun little shooter.

Things I would have changed: Nothing, except perhaps the addition of a rubber buttpad would be nice. Weihrauch could shorten the stock 1/2" then add a buttpad, and it would retain its original length.

What others should know: Just keep in mind it's not a powerhouse, it is somewhere between a P1 and an R7 in power. It will still penetrate a 15oz soupcan at 100 feet if you hit it dead on. I have not done any real accuracy testing yet, but I have no trouble whacking cans with it at 100 feet using the iron sights. It also appears to be scopeable, as it has dovetails milled into the receiver. But the barrel is thin so it might be difficult to find a muzzle break for it.
