Here are some of the benefits of a gas spring over a metal mainspring:
  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring

Weihrauch is known for making superior-quality rifles. In fact, they set the standard over 50 years ago, and everyone else has been playing catch-up! While there are many other well-made rifles being made today, there's a bit of nostalgia for many airgunners who know that you just can't go wrong when you buy a Weihrauch airgun.

The first thing you'll notice is the well-proportioned stock. Next, you'll admire the beautiful, deep bluing. Then, the accuracy. It doesn't matter how beautiful they make the gun if it's not accurate. HW guns are known for their pinpoint accuracy. Even if you never put a scope on your gun, you'll still enjoy repeatedly hitting the 10-ring.

The Weihrach HW90 breakbarrel air rifle is a good hunting gun. Shoot small- to medium-sized pests and game. The gas spring easily stands up to being cocked while you wait for the ideal shot to be taken. It won't weaken like metal mainsprings. Hunting with air rifles is becoming more common, and many states now list specific game that can be taken with them.

If you're not a hunter but want a quality air rifle for plinking or target shooting, the HW 90 will give you decades of service.

Things I liked: Fit and finish are what you would expect from a high end piece of equipment. Mine is a .25 and it hits like a sledge hammer. The steel spinners that swing up when hit at 30- 50 yards with my .22 air rifles, will flip all the way over, sometimes twice when hit with this rifle. Pretty good groups right out of the box. After about 500 shots, the groups have tightened up to about 3/4" c-c at 35 yards with several pellets stacking right next to each other and sometimes in the same hole. It seems to still keep getting better the more I shoot it.

Things I would have changed: It would be nice to have a one piece scope mount with stop pin holes that match the receiver in both spacing and dia. Weirauch makes one in a dampa-mount, but I've never found it for sale here in the U.S. I had make and add stop pins to a 11mm to weaver mount to get a scope to hold still and stay zero'd. I'd also like the pump and gauge Weirauch makes for this rifle to check and adjust when needed the pre-load charge in the gas ram.

What others should know: Some say these are hard to cock. I find that it is more about technique than brute strength. I shoot mine while sitting most of the time, and if you can bring the barrel down in one smooth motion, it is not difficult to cock at all. I would like to have one of these in .22 as well!

Things I liked: Build quality, design, weight. Yes it's expensive, but so are others in it's category. Something about Weihrauch products gives the feeling of craftsmanship and longevity. The punch and power with the .22 is crazy, better have a good backstop. You will definitely build some arm muscles cocking it, so shooting targets for an hour will be work. It maintains the same amount of resistance through the full stroke, so make sure its fully cocked. Still I find it's worth the effort for what the rifle does.

Things I would have changed: Provide a sling attachment (not on the barrel) that can be used for off-hand.

What others should know: Currently have a Simmons 6x21 44mag mildot sidefocus scope mounted to a Leapers one piece. Have installed approx .008 of brass shim in the rear ring; scope didn't max out elevation but was close. Scope is holding zero, only about 200 rounds so far. Scope mounts low enough to maintain cheek weld (for me). I find the sound and recoil to be better than my HW50 (yes, comparing different powerplants).

Things I liked: I buy HW90 before 2 years. after 3 shoot is broken. after repair, I use couple time and after 20 shoots is broken again. it's terrible duality.

  • james from USA asked:

    Again I'm asking. Should there be free play in the cocking arm when not cocked? PA telling me it's ok. I had one other rifle with same problem and it eventually broke. Had to be returned. this hw90 is to expensive to be playing games waiting to break out of warranty

    • james from USA asked:

      I just bought a hw90 .22 cal. There's alot of play in the cocking arm when not cocked. Is this bad? Any kind of fix? It's just anoying knowing its there

      • Jeffrey from USA:

        I just received my HW90 in .22 last month and did not have any freeplay.
