  • don from USA asked:

    Looking for input on anyone having put Vortek 12# kit in the R9....what has been the experience? Anyone shooting field target w/ this gun...if so what's it like? What scope are your using? I have a Tx200 and a Beeman R7. Both very accurate. Wonder if the R9 w/ a 12# kit would be a good middle range b/n these 2 guns.

    • Rodger from USA asked:

      I'm wanting to do hunter class and try gunslinger. Scope with the most magnification that will work on the r9.

      • Tyler from USA:

        For hunter class, you can't use more than 16x, and a 4-16x scope would be a good choice. I would look at the Hawke line like the Airmax 30 4-16x

    • Rodger from USA asked:

      Would like to mount a good scope for field target. Which scope would fit the best?

      • Tyler from USA:

        What class are you shooting? Length of the optic will be an issue as you need to either mount it higher to clear the barrel when it breaks, or go with a shorter scope.

    • Jonah from USA asked:

      Is this the same as the hw95. Will the Luxus stocks switch out between the r9 and 95?

      • Tyler from USA:

        It should, it is the same as the HW95. I would recommend asking Weihrauch directly if the stocks will swap, I would think they will though

    • Sal from USA asked:

      The .20 cal are Walther barrel in the Beeman and Weihrauch brand.

      • Paul from USA:

        So what is your question??

    • Lajos from USA asked:

      What is the LOP (length of pull) for this rifle?

      • DavidW from USA:

        My .20 Cal measures 14-1/4 inches or 36 cm. It is about 4 years old and the checkering on the stock looks different than the one pictured on this page but the overall shape of the stock looks the same.

    • james from USA asked:

      Which fps is it? PA says 740fps and the person that answered the question says 900?????

      • Paul from USA:

        I'm sorry I was referring to the .177 caliber. Thanks Mark for clearing up my incomplete answer.

      • Mark from USA:

        740 fps in .22, and 900 fps in .177. Velocity also depends on the weight of the pellet you use.

    • KENNETH from USA asked:

      Which brand of rings ships with the rifle?

      • Mark from USA:

        tech. force

    • Chevota from USA asked:

      40lbs cocking effort seems excessive for this low power range, or is that a typo? I would've guessed closer to 25. Can anyone confirm?

      • Paul from USA:

        I dislike pounds of cocking effort because it depends on how easy and smooth it cocks. Mine is probably 33lbs. with a PG2 power kit in it at 17fpe but is very easy to cock and very smooth. Magnum springers start to get a bit tiring to cock but the R9 does not fall into this category.

      • Paul from USA:

        The test I did for Hard Air Magazine we got 35Lb.s of cocking force. Remember this rifle is not a low powered rifle it gets over 900 F.P.S.

      • Cory from USA:

        The cocking effort is approx. 40 lbs for this model.
