This is the actual rifle I’m testing. Isn’t that wood beautiful?

Before I begin, at the end of this report there is a lengthy Q&A section in which Dr. Mirfee Ungier, wife of Pyramyd Air owner Joshua Ungier, answers a number of questions about protective eyewear and other related shooting issues. Dr. Ungier is a respected ophthalmologist with thousands of successful surgeries to her credit, and she agreed to answer readers’ questions about protective eyewear.

Today, we’ll look at the accuracy of the HW 100 S FSB PCP air rifle I’m testing. Throughout this report, I’ve mentioned how impressed I am with this airgun for various reasons. It has the easiest-loading metal rotary clip in the business. You can see the pellets advance in the clip, and now I know that you can even see them when a scope is mounted. That makes the rifle very easy to manage — like knowing when you’re shooting the last shot. And, then, there’s the trigger! This one is perfect for me. It breaks cleanly at 8 oz. and has a positive two-stage release. I couldn’t ask for more. read more

Before we start, I want to let you know that there are two new videos on Airgun Academy:

Episode 25 – Introduction to airgun calibers: Part 1
Episode 26 – Introduction to airgun safety: Part 1

There’s also a new podcast. This is a special one. It’s the interview with Dr. Robert Beeman, founder of Beeman Precision Airguns. Sorry this has taken so long, but Edith processes them and she had a few unavoidable delays getting this ready for publication.

On to today’s blog.

Weihrauch HW 100 S FSB PCP rifle: Part 1

by B.B. Pelletier


This is the actual rifle I’m testing. Isn’t that wood beautiful?

We’re going to start our look at Weihrauch’s top PCP rifle, the HW 100 S FSB. There are so many features packed into this rifle that I’ll have to address them in all three parts of the report, but today I’ll get a good start on the general rifle.

Weihrauch is best known to airgunners for the high-quality spring-piston airguns it produces and, of course, their well-reknowned Rekord trigger. But they only entered the world of precharged pneumatics less than a decade ago with their one and still only model, the 100 S. For the record, the FSB designator means fully shrouded barrel, so that’s the first of many features you’ll be seeing. There’s a model 100 T (for thumbhole), also with a fully shrouded barrel. So it is called the HW 100 T FSB. read more
