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: 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!

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.

  • 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:

      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.

  • michael from USA asked:

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

  • Dan from USA asked:

    Is there such a thing as a too heavy pellet for this rifle? What grain pellet is best, and what is too heavy?

    • Chevota from USA:

      Springers lose power as pellet weight goes up, and typically there's a certain weight where power drops off faster so you don't want to cross that line unless you have excess power, which this gun does not. Where this line is varies on the guns design and power, but it's probably low to mid 7gr with this gun. I have a similar gun with almost exactly the same power and a 7.3gr has 25% more power than a 10.5gr. Considering this guns power level I would probably consider 8.4gr my max. So I'd try 7.0 to 8.4 to see how it does. I'd also only buy quality pellets for it, like JSB or H&N, and look at the BC of whatever pellet to be sure it's good so you can get the most from it. Something like a 7gr wadcutter will work well for paper targets at 10M, but hunting is a very different story. JSB makes 7.3, 7.8, and 8.4 which are excellent quality and have good BC. Which one you or the gun will like better I can't say so I'd try them all, and other brands too. Pointed pellets may look good but the round nose have much better BC. Hollow points are cool but the only one I'd consider are Crow Magnum which are a bit too heavy for this gun, but doesn't hurt to try 'em. You can't hurt the gun shooting heavier pellets, it's just the power and velocity loss you have to deal with. For example that 7.3-10.5 I mentioned was a 240fps loss.
