Weihrauch HW98 Air Rifle
With over 100 years in the airgun industry, Weihrauch certainly knows how to create an amazing breakbarrel air rifle.
The HW98 is a gun destined for backyard greatness in target shooting and small game hunting. This air rifle builds on Weihrauch’s long experience by keeping the ambidextrous stocks while adding an adjustable buttplate which cants left to right as well as moves up and down, along with an adjustable cheekpiece set into its unique beech wood frame, accented by black stippling along the forend and grip.
Like other airguns by Weihrauch, the HW98 contains the famed Rekord trigger, a crisp, clean, 2-stage adjustable that’s been called on of the best spring gun triggers in the world. While there are no open sights, the 98 includes an 11mm dovetail which begs for a high powered scope. If you can’t tell by now, this is not your average breakbarrel!
With this combination of quality design, comfortable hold and prized features--make the HW98 your own!

HELLO FELLOW AIRGUNNERS, I PURCHASED THIS HW98 IN .22 CAL. FROM PYRAMYDAIR (VERY NICE FOLKS AT PYRAMYD). LET ME TELL YOU FOLKS! WHEN IT COMES TO PRECISION, BEST HIGH QUALITY THROUGHOUT, SPRING PISTON AIR RIFLES - THIS MODEL HAS GOT TO BE AT THE VERY TOP OF THE LIST OF FINE AIRGUNS. I MEAN EVERYTHING FROM THE STOCK, THE METAL, THE TRIGGER ( AND WHAT A FINE PIECE OF MACHINERY THAT TRIGGER IS) MINE BREAKS AT ABOUT 1.4LBS. OF COURSE THE ACTION OF BREAKING THE BARREL TO SHOULDERING AND THEN PULLING THE TRIGGER IS ALL SUPERB! NO QUESTION ABOUT IT FOLKS THIS IS THE BEST OF THE BEST. RECENTLY, I WAS OUT SHOOTING AT ABOUT 25 YARDS - THE 10 SHOT GROUP MEASURED .35"! THAT'S DAMN NEAR SAME HOLE OVER AND OVER AGAIN.Things I would have changed:
I GUESS I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A LOWER PRICE TAG - SINCE I AM IN THE MARKET FOR A .177 VERSION. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT QUALITY " YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" AND WITH THIS HW98 YOU GET EVERYTHING I MEAN DOWN TO THE LAST DETAIL. IT IS DEFINITELY AN HEIRLOOM RIFLE MEANT TO BE PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.What others should know:
IF YOU DECIDE TO GET ONE OF THESE FINE PRECISION GEMS OF AN AIR RIFLE YOU SHOULD GET A RELIABLE GOOD QUALITY SCOPE - LIKE THE HAWKE LINE. ALSO, OPT FOR THE (10 FOR 10 SHOT) QUALITY CONTROL CHECK BEFORE YOU CHECK OUT.
GREAT!!! GREAT!!! GREAT!!!!!!!!Things I would have changed:
NADA!!What others should know:
TAKE CARE OF IT - IT'S AN HIERLOOM - WILL LAST GENERATIONS IF KEPT CLEAN AND FREE OF DAMAGE
I purchased a .22 version on a refurbished about 7 months ago. I love Weihrauch and Dianwerks. This rifle is one you can carry all day. I've hunted and foot stalked rabbits on my ranch. I run the 14.3gr hp, or JSB 25gr for 15-20 yard shots with 3 mil dots holdunder. It is so smooth and quiet that you can get 2nd, and 3rd shots if you miss your prey. I run a Hawke optic on this rifle with the Sports Match rings. This rifle would be a nice size for a youth or adult. You could shoot field and target competition it's so good. Weihrauch used star screws on the pivot at the break barrel. Very helpful in keeping it tight and smooth. Wonderful rifle to own.Things I would have changed:
Offer in .20cal please. My butt pad screws loosened. The previous owner must have over tightened. I fixed the issue by taking cedar splinters and inserting three in each hole, then tighten. Allen screws will bite splinters, and secure the buttplate. Then reinstall buttpad. This fix will work on similar issues. I would love to see the barreled action on a walnut stock, like the HW35E. Swing swivels would be nice for tree hunters. Not in love with the grip tape texture over diamond checkering even if it's laser cut nowadays. I still love the darn thing. I'm just older and oogle sexy air rifles with great styling.What others should know:
It's expensive, but it's worth every penny down the line. It is super accurate, and if you tweak the trigger down to an even lighter pull, you notice your groups look even better. It shoulders the easiest of all of my Weihrauchs. HW35E, HW97K, HW90. It is deceptively quiet. You may think it's slow. Watch out. I popped a rabbit near the feed barrel. The round exited the rabbit, went through the feed barrel, and through the feed scoop. It's not a super powerhouse, but it is powerful. I've hit rabbits, and they do a full flip forward in the air after impact. I think any varmint hunter will be pleasantly surprised by this one for the smaller game. Also, this would make a great survival rifle. You wouldn't give away your position, and two rabbits, a couple of doves sure beats survival package meals.
Got a question or answer?
Will the .22 Special Order come with the new 2020 threaded barrel option?
It should be new production. Yes.
1) What is the muzzle energy in 0.25? 2) Does all calibers come with a same spring?
All depends on the true velocity of your rifle, you really need a choreograph to find that number,and you need to know the weight of the pellet in grains.
22 ft lbs. The spring is the same in all calibers.
What is the cocking force in pounds and barrel rifling twist rate?
It's basically an R9, which is rated at 40 lbs of cocking effort, though I've never found them that hard. Usually in the mid 30s. Not sure on twist rate
