Pyramyd Air tested both the .177- and .22-caliber airguns and found the velocities to be higher than what the manufacturer has stated. Below are some comparisons:

.177 caliber:
Manufacturer--820 fps
Our tests--Up to 849 fps with 7.0-grain RWS Hobby pellets

.22 caliber:
Manufacturer--574 fps
Our tests--Up to 650 fps with 11.9-grain RWS Hobby pellets & 595 fps with 14.66-grain Beeman Field Target Trophy pellets

While this is the "S" model and has a Rekord trigger, the manufacturer does not stamp the gun with an "S."

Things I liked: Well-built and solid, but relatively light and easy handling. Very nicely finished wood and metal. Relatively calm recoil and easy to shoot accurately, but still feels alive and has hunting and pesting power. Excellent HW barrel. Very smooth cocking and easy to shoot all day long. Rekord trigger is crisp and light. I have had many good guns, UK BSAs, Webleys, AA, and other HWs, and this is as accurate, well-built, and enjoyable to shoot as any of them. It is a wonderful welterweight sporter.

Things I would have changed: If I were to nitpick, I would would prefer Allen screws instead of the flatheads that hold the stock to the action. A resettable safety would be nice, although the stock safety can be reset by re-cocking. I wish it were less twangy in stock form, but most spring rifles, even expensive imports, are twangy out of the box. However, this platform is certainly worthy of the investment in a spring kit or pro tune.

What others should know: Loctite your screws right away- I use Gun-tite. Do not overtighten the rear trigger guard screw. I put an aftermarket spring kit in mine and it feels like a tunes rifle and makes good power- about 11 ft-lbs after 2000 shots. Off a bench with a 6.5-20x scope on a calm day, I can shoot dime sized groups at 35 yards all day long- granted, I need to focus to do it- it's not a PCP. It can hit soda cans consistently at 100 yards. It shoots most pellets well but seems to do its very best with JSB 7.87 and H&N FTT pellets.

Things I liked: From the minute I took this out of the box I was impressed ! Very deep rich bluing . Very smooth cocking with a positive crisp click when cocked . Due to its light weight it is very easy to shoot off hand . Love the sights . I like the safety placement and function . The rifle is very well built and very tight .

Things I would have changed: Really nothing but I would not mind 1 or 2 more inches of barrel length .

What others should know: I have three other Air rifles all RWS springer's which I love . 54 air king .177 , 34 compact .177 , 350 magnum .22 cal . This rifle was recommended to me by Greg at PA ( Thank you Greg you were right on point )This HW50S is the one I grab most of the time when I want to do some back yard plinking . It is just plain fun to shoot ! Mine loves the Meisterkugein rifle 8.2 gr . With those it shoots around 750 fps . It is a very accurate . I am getting dime size 5 shot groups at 18 yds with the iron sights and 56 year old eyes . I thought about putting a scope on it, but it is just to fun to shoot with the iron sights . The trigger is awesome and great out of the box . I adjusted mine out counter clockwise ( to lighten trigger pull ) slowly a little bit at the time about 3/4 of a turn total and it is perfect for me now . Go ahead and get you one you will love it !

Things I liked: Like a German scalpel. Crisp. Sharp. Slick. Perfect. Higher quality than ANY real FIREARM in the gun cases at your local "Wally World." My first Weihrauch. It is a tribute to the lost art called Craftsmanship. ...shot 300 pellets in 2 days. Can't put it down. Its made so well it seems like it will take a thousand more just to break it in. Notchy. Clicky. Crisp. Tight. Slick. ...and no plastic here!

Things I would have changed: Maybe include some "Weihrauch Sport" stickers in the box? I don't know. The gun is beautiful as it is.

What others should know: I can confirm that this gun is not "easy" to cock. That is the only thing that I would warn a friend who might be considering one. Now don't get me wrong, when I was 12, I was determined enough, and most likely capable of cocking this thing. Seems to be nearly as hard to cock as other powerful springers that I've dealt with. That being said, I'm a normal man and I can fire off a string of 20 shots in a few minutes, no problem. This gun is high enough quality that you can get enjoyment from just looking at it and admiring it. And it shoots too!

  • Larry from USA asked:

    Has anyone done a comparison between the HW50s and the Crossman 3100 in .177 caliber?

    • Dan from USA asked:

      I bought an HW50s this year and the velocity with 7.0 gr RWS Basics is just 750 fps. Rifle has a thwack sound when firing, without any vibration. Wondering if there is a problem with the lower than stated velocity?

      • Chevota from USA:

        It's up to you but I'd take it apart for a look-c. First be sure the breech seal isn't leaking, then I'd take it apart to check the main seal and spring. They're pretty simple so as long as neither of those seals leaks and the spring is good it should make full power. Other things can cause power loss, like a tight barrel or bad transfer port, but those should not be an issue on a gun of this quality.

      • Dan from USA:

        One year later with this rifle and the average is 750 fps. Although very smooth shooting, it never achieved the stated 820 fps. Always get the 10 for $10 PA test, which I didn't.

      • Dan the Man from USA:

        It sounds like your rifle is under powered. You might want to ship it to Pyramyd for service, they do work on them.

      What rear peep do you people recommend for this rifle, keeping front globe?
