Things I liked:What a nice, quality .22 air rifle. I love the stock & checkering of Pyramid's offering. Of course the gun is accurate and the metal work is beautiful. Not too big or small.
Things I would have changed:Nothing.
What others should know:Some reviews say it is harder to cock than the 24 lbs. in the specs. I tend to agree. It takes more effort than I would like considering this is a 12 ftp or less rifle. However, after about 100 shots it is smoothing out quite nicely and it should be getting better & better as time goes on.
Things I liked:What a great air rifle! Looks great. Great size and weight. I love the options of the multiple front inserts. The stock is beautiful. The trigger is awesome. Balances well when shooting.
Things I would have changed:It was a bit gritty and twangy out of the box. I cleaned and polished up the internals, and I also installed a Vortek kit and now it shoots absolutely amazing. Now it is quiet and smooth and producing just over 11 ft/lbs of energy. I removed the rear sight and put on a Williams aperture sight. I love this set up.
What others should know:This is still a great great rifle even without the tuning kit. You will not regret buying this rifle. You really do get what you pay for.
Things I liked:This is the second HW50 I was sent, as the first had to be returned for repair. This gun has a great balance to it, and really shoots great. I also own an HW30 which is a great gun, but if I had to get rid of one of the two, it would be the HW30, simply because the HW50 is a great all-around gun. It is very accurate for target shooting, and has the extra ft/sec. and ft./pounds for hunting. The HW30 is more of a target gun.
Things I would have changed:I would have Weihrauch install a steel muzzle break on the end of the barrel like the Beeman R7. My friend Joe put a steel muzzle break on my HW50, and it really balances it out. The rifle is already heavier than the HW30, and the extra weight at the muzzle end makes it steadier to aim. In addition the muzzle break makes the rifle easier to cock. It is a great rifle.
What others should know:If you are looking for one air rifle that you want to spend around $400 for, look no further than the HW50. It is a great target gun, as well as a hunting rifle for small game. My particular air rifle is a .177 caliber, and likes the H & N Match Pistol 4.51 diameter pellets. It will easily tear up the orange bull on a 10 meter target at 10 meters if I do my part. I do not own a chrony, but it definitely shoots faster than the HW30 in .177. The checkering on the stock and forearm makes gripping the gun more sure than the slick finish of the HW30. Also, the Rekord trigger is top of the line in this price range of guns; they are superb.
