Things I liked: Smooth & quiet operating and shooting, nice fit & finish on wood & metal both. Easy to shoot well,not at all hold sensitive. Dimensions, weight & power ideal for targets/plinking on my indoor & backyard ranges. Including informal Bell Target matches.
Things I would have changed: Nothing comes to mind.
What others should know: Expect a lot from this rifle,it does what it does real well.Also bear in mind that I've owned the rifle for only 5 months.
Things I liked: This is the 9 th air gun I've bought ,it arrived today. By far it's the best finished and best shooting gun in my collection. I removed it from the box and the inner box, thank you folks at Pyramyd for your care in shipping. My first shots with iron sights were a surprise, I am 76 and my vision is poor, but I was hitting my spinners , rocking rat and cans quit Well! This is a pure joy to Shoot! Of the guns in my position this is #1 , #2 is an Airforce Talonp .25 and #3 is a 77 blue streak in .20. The rest have lost there luster!
Things I would have changed: Not one thing
What others should know: Don't waste your time and monies on junk , buy this , you won't regret your investment .
Things I liked: Bought this rifle for a backyard plinker and it has more than satisfied me in this respect! Fit and finish on my rifle are excellent , I'm really impressed with the bluing job on receiver and barrel! I'd love to be a fly on the wall in their polishing room to watch one being prepped for bluing. I outfitted this rifle with one of the air force diopter sights and as the add says, ( ACCURATE, ACCURATE, ACCURATE ) I like this little rifle so much I might just have to pick one more up for the wife to use.
Things I would have changed: As I outfitted this rifle with a diopter sight I removed the factory rear as it was not needed. When doing this you end up with a stop pin and two tapped holes that need to be filled. As I just happen to have a mill in the basement there was no great problem making up a cover plate to solve this problem. Three shots of Oxpho Blue and it looks like it grew there all on its own. It would be nice if Weihrauch offered such a cover plate as it could probably be used on most of their rifle models. Also , it would be really nice if the front sight inserts came with more than just one size of the lollipop insert. I've found instead of changing the insert to shoot bullseye targets at different distances you have to figure out what size bullseye fits the insert and switch to a target with that size bullseye. Very time consuming but it works! If you only shoot at 10 meters that one insert works just fine.
What others should know: This particular rifle is a little hold sensitive. I've found for me that I can't put any pressure on the pistol grip at all. Just rest my thumb on top of the wrist and pull the trigger. On the other hand, after a little pellet testing I can truthfully say at ten meters this is a one hole rifle!!! It shoots a whole lot better than than I ever will! And the best part is I can roll cat food cans around at 40-50YDS all afternoon long. As far as pellets, I lucked out! It hates any of the RWS pellets, H&N not much better, but boy does it like the JSB exact RS and Crosman Premier hollow points! As I have an unlimited supply of the CP'S at the local WallyWorld I'll let you figure out which one I"ll be shooting One final note. I know that this is not considered a hunting rifle, but don't tell that to the three squirrels, one rabbit, and many blackbirds that came to visit my blueberry patch this summer. Keep it under 25YDS and take head shots.

I was looking at purchasing these guns for our summer youth program. Are the front and rear sights replaceable? These guns will end up being used by hundreds of kids.
While both sights can be removed, I have not seen a different front sight on these guns. Some folks do remove the rear sight in favor of a williams peep sight mounted to the scope dovetail. If you mean replaceable as in spare parts available, then yes. Spare rear and front sight units can be had easily right through this website.
Is it true that once you disengage the safety the only way to re-engage the safety is to cock the gun?
I am not a fan of springers, having only shot a Diana 34 and just one day. They do have a certain allure and purity and I suppose I should have one for further familiarity. It is frequently seen on GTA and elsewhere including here that more often than not, tuning and spring replacement right out of the box is necessary. This HW30S at $329.99 is a VERY expensive beginning springer and to not have it functioning at a high level right from the manufacturer is rather bothersome. This is also seen on higher priced models. Is this what should be expected?
A lot of that comes down to expectation. Often, airgunners are tinkerers, and with that comes the wanting to get the very most out of their gun. It also means that working on the gun is part of the fun and experience. Is it necessary to replace the spring and/or tune the rifle out of the box, heck no! If you want to get rid of any and all vibration, enjoy the process of going through a gun and are capable of doing it, then go for it. What I did with my HW30, I shot it for a long time...a few years in fact in the box stock configuration. One winter, when I found the rifle was mostly just sitting I pulled it apart and dropped in a tune kit. The rifle didn't shoot any better, but it did get rid of that slight vibration from the factory. Though, tune-in -a-tube will do the same thing now, without having to take it apart. The HW30s will last a lifetime as it comes from the factory, and that's the important part.
