Things I liked: Bought this rifle for a backyard plinker and it has more than satisfied me in this respect! Fit and finish on my rifle are excellent , I'm really impressed with the bluing job on receiver and barrel! I'd love to be a fly on the wall in their polishing room to watch one being prepped for bluing. I outfitted this rifle with one of the air force diopter sights and as the add says, ( ACCURATE, ACCURATE, ACCURATE ) I like this little rifle so much I might just have to pick one more up for the wife to use.
Things I would have changed: As I outfitted this rifle with a diopter sight I removed the factory rear as it was not needed. When doing this you end up with a stop pin and two tapped holes that need to be filled. As I just happen to have a mill in the basement there was no great problem making up a cover plate to solve this problem. Three shots of Oxpho Blue and it looks like it grew there all on its own. It would be nice if Weihrauch offered such a cover plate as it could probably be used on most of their rifle models. Also , it would be really nice if the front sight inserts came with more than just one size of the lollipop insert. I've found instead of changing the insert to shoot bullseye targets at different distances you have to figure out what size bullseye fits the insert and switch to a target with that size bullseye. Very time consuming but it works! If you only shoot at 10 meters that one insert works just fine.
What others should know: This particular rifle is a little hold sensitive. I've found for me that I can't put any pressure on the pistol grip at all. Just rest my thumb on top of the wrist and pull the trigger. On the other hand, after a little pellet testing I can truthfully say at ten meters this is a one hole rifle!!! It shoots a whole lot better than than I ever will! And the best part is I can roll cat food cans around at 40-50YDS all afternoon long. As far as pellets, I lucked out! It hates any of the RWS pellets, H&N not much better, but boy does it like the JSB exact RS and Crosman Premier hollow points! As I have an unlimited supply of the CP'S at the local WallyWorld I'll let you figure out which one I"ll be shooting One final note. I know that this is not considered a hunting rifle, but don't tell that to the three squirrels, one rabbit, and many blackbirds that came to visit my blueberry patch this summer. Keep it under 25YDS and take head shots.
Things I liked: Quality is what I expected. I expected to pay for a premium import and that is what I got. The trigger is very good without adjustment. Some people are overly critical about it. It is just a flat out Top quality sporting trigger out of the box. I feel no problem shooting this rifle to the best of my ability. The fit and finish of this rifle is fantastic. Especially looking at most rifles these days. I have no imperfections of any kind on my rifle. Even the butt pad is fitted perfectly. I can tell the red paint on the safety will wear off with time. The open sights are very usable. Some people may be overly critical about them as well but they offer a great sight picture and with all the combinations you are sure to find what you like.
Things I would have changed: you will see this complaint a lot regarding the rubbing or galling. It is unfortunate that this quality product is affected by that. I was able to correct mine by accident and I do not advocate the way I did. Please do a Google search on how to fix it. If weirauch doesn't want to fix the design they should at least offer the derlin insert to fix it with. This is literally the only problem with the rifle. My rifle buzzes a little bit but I'm used to my Diana 45 so this is very minor to me.
What others should know: Get this rifle. Even with the negative things that some say this rifle is a flat out class act. This rifle is just as accurate as you are maybe more so. When I miss I know it's my fault. I have noticed no shot sensitivity especially when shooting small plastic army men empty Co2 powerlets and dandelion puffs. I also shoot bigger stalks on some of the weeds in my yard. I'm not a great shot but this rifle is a perfect trainer. I can shoot 1/2" groups with a few different pellets. Although I'm not good enough to shoot that good all the time. STOP BUYING CHEAP RIFLES! buy quality the first time. You will end up saving money. This rifle is the last one I would ever get rid of it ever came to that.
Things I liked: Size, medium power, easy to cock, light, accuracy. Good bluing and decent stock finish.
Things I would have changed: Nothing important really. Just one thing, I would have gladly paid a bit more for a nicer walnut stock in this otherwise beautiful little rifle. It is much better than it looks.
What others should know: I was prepared for mediocre accuracy for the first 100 shots as many have expressed. It was not the case. After spending the first ten shots out of the box making slight adjustments to the open sights, my second ten shots cut a single ragged hole at 10 yards with Hobby pellets. It simply wants to group. It also likes Meisterkugeln at short distances. With a scope and at a bit longer distances it also makes single holes with JSB Exact and domed Premiers. There is very little vibration and relatively low noise. The only minor disappointment is with the Rekord trigger that is not as smooth as I had expected. It is certainly OK but not as good as the one in my old Diana 34. It might need some break-in so I will wait some time before making adjustments.
I am not a fan of springers, having only shot a Diana 34 and just one day. They do have a certain allure and purity and I suppose I should have one for further familiarity. It is frequently seen on GTA and elsewhere including here that more often than not, tuning and spring replacement right out of the box is necessary. This HW30S at $329.99 is a VERY expensive beginning springer and to not have it functioning at a high level right from the manufacturer is rather bothersome. This is also seen on higher priced models. Is this what should be expected?
Does the 30s perform well with alloy pellets?
does the 30s come with the delrin insert on the cocking arm like the 50s?
