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: Have never had an air rifle this easy to shoot--the least hold sensitive I have ever shot, MUCH better than the 2 Benjamin gas pistons I currently have, even a little better than the RWS 34 that I have had for years. Also the least pellet picky rifle I've ever shot--tried 11 different pellets, shot fine with 6, outstandingly well with 2 (and this is after only 600 shots, MUCH quicker break-in than I am used to). At 35 laser-measured yards groups are always under 3/4" and again, this is only 600 shots in, not even what I consider broken in yet. Cocking effort was not bad at all (and I'm a fat 47 year- old, not a 20 something body builder) and was quite smooth out of the box. If you have been considering one of these go ahead--it will not disappoint.

Things I would have changed: Nothing so far, and that is quite unusual.

What others should know: From my limited experience (8 "adult" air guns over the years) this rifle is a true value for the price. Not as fast as a lot of them out there, but a heck of a lot more accurate and easier to shoot in my opinion.

Things I liked: I got my HW50s during a sale and had it dropped shipped to John Thomas in PA for a tune. What I got is the most perfect air rifle I've owned to date. So far I've owned an HW30, 77, and 80 - all fine rifles... but the HW50s is just right for me. I'm big guy shooting recreationally on several acres, plinking 10-30m with open sights and this gun suits me better than any other springer or PCP yet. Finish and appearance is top-notch but I do recommend a tune job on any of these nicer rifles. Mine is smooth and moderate powered, not too heavy or clumsy, but not "too" light like an HW30. It's still stout enough not to be a kid's rifle. But not a beast like the field target models....

Things I would have changed: I've had a couple of tuned and a couple of stock HWs now and much prefer the tuned ones ;-p Out of the box the ones I've had needed a lot of shooting to smooth out.

What others should know: I think most adult males can cock this rifle all day long (put the butt on your thigh) and it delivers enough umph for backyard pesting in .177. Mine likes JSB Exact 8.4gr.

Things I liked: I am a big fan of the HW50 and Weihrauch in general. I have in order of purchase an R1, HW30, HW50, and HW97. The HW50 is the best all around of the bunch. Plenty of power for most purposes in 177 and very accurate. When I bought my gun about 5 or so years ago, the first time I tried to cock it I could not break the barrel. I finally decided to pop the barrel with my hand and was able to cock it. First few times it was a little stiff but now very easy to cock. Not sure why but all is good for many thousands of rounds. I even accidentally left it cocked for a week once. I was very happy to find that it had no effect on the gun. I would say in my opinion this could be the best all around spring gun made. Very light, extremely well made, and accurate.

Things I would have changed: The Beeman influenced safety is poor in terms of ergonomics. Hard to reach, cannot be reset after putting in fire position. It actually broke on my R1 shortly after I bought it. I much prefer the safety on my HW30 non-S model with the Perfect trigger. I can overlook this flaw but I think Weirhauch could improve it.

What others should know: Crossman Premier domed 7.9 in the 1250 cartons work great. Not the tins as they seem to be different pellets for some reason?? JSB exact work great in my 97 which has a tighter bore than the 50. I'm sure the JSB would work well in the 50 too.

  • JAY from USA asked:

    I have been looking at the customer images on this gun and I would like to know what type of rear peep sight is on this customers gun? Thanks Jay from USA

    • 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?

        • Dan from USA:

          Good advice Chevota! I did and found the mainspring had broken. Replaced it with an aftermarket spring and guide and it shoots to specs now. The factory spring had broken within about 4 months of being purchased.

        • 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.
