Things I liked: Everything.......So Why is this ? Its light (lighter than an HW80, this is its smaller brother), and very very accurate (when used with H&N FTT in either .20 or .177), and this is NOT to be confused with the HW95 (a very common mistake), this has a FULL Length barrel 50c/m, this does 3 things 1) gives a greater amount of leverage making it very easy to cock, 2) Very quiet to shoot 3) The longer barrel gives less recoil as lets say to achieve 11.5ft pounds, the shorter the barrel, the more powerful spring is needed to achieve the same power - so with the full length barrel, it is very smooth to shoot. 4) You get a very long sight base if you use a peep sight on the rear, since the foresight to rearsight is a much greater distance, so a big sightbase, this also applies to optical sights too. 4 big advantages over shorter barrels. Well built and V.reliable. Come with open sights too.
Things I would have changed: Its not easy to get hold of these in the U.K but my RFD kept on at the wholesaler, and I now have two of these gems. They are on the official H.W. website, but when you try and order one the fun begins. Look very closely, and you will see from the barrel length it is different to the HW95, and so are the internals too. You do NOT need a silencer as it is so quiet and they are mostly just gimmicks on springers. As with all Weihrauch's, I wish that one could re-apply the safety catch after it has been taken 'off' safe and set to 'fire'.
What others should know: In .20 it is deadly on rabbits, and even at 45 paces, it still downed one easily (the .20 will hold its energy for much longer than any other calibre, so is very good at UK 12ft pounds, and hits hard and penetrates too. Use H&N FTT or Bisley Superfield in .20 and you can't go wrong. The .177 is very smooth to shoot, and as well as FTT, it likes BSA Interceptor, Bisley practice, and RS Hollowpoint gives max velocity (a little bit less power but still good). With .20, although there are less pellets, they are all of very good quality (no rubbish) and so you don't need lots of them. I have not yet tried JSB, but they do one too, and so does Webley, but at 14gn this is more for PCPs, although they may still work okay and will still carry further than a .22of the same weight. As far as I can tell, if you wanted F.A.C. they will do around 17ft pounds, whereas the HW80 is heavier, but will go over 20ft pounds. Mine are both standard 12ft pounds, and I am very pleased with them.
