Things I liked: It lives up to its reputation for quality and accuracy! Very smooth cocking and firing, even right out of the box. Plenty quiet for backyard shooting, and quieter than I expected given its “3” loudness rating. Never really knew that difference a quality two stage trigger made, but I do now! Some springers need to break in, but so far I have about 300 shots through this and haven’t noticed much of a change yet. Maybe it needs more shots and will get better, but this is so smooth and accurate already that any improvement would not be expected or needed. I’ve tried several pellets and haven’t found any it doesn’t like, but the JSB 8.44’s are working well. I’m getting half inch groups at 10 yards so far, bench rested with a scope. Maybe that’s not very impressive for experienced shooters, but it seems pretty good for my relative experience level.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. I cant find anything to even nitpick this gun about!
What others should know: Recently I got my 8 year old son his first gun and started looking for something to shoot with him in the backyard (10-20 yard targets and plinking). I inherited my dads ~30 year old Webley Vulcan, still in great shape and shooting well, but felt that it was a bit loud and twangy to use in our neighborhood so I wanted something quieter (we face open woods but have neighbors close on the sides). So I got on PA and looked around and focused on the loudness ratings and was recommended a Benjamin Mayhem. This turned out to be too much gun for my needs, and no quieter than my old Vulcan, so I returned it and resumed looking. I realized that guns in the 7-8 FPE range would fit my needs better so I focused on the HW30S and the Diana 240 Classic. The Diana looks promising and is half the price of this HW30S, but after my previous experience, I didn’t want to have any regrets so I went with the HW30S and I’m glad I did!
Things I liked: Well built and balanced. Looks great. Stock is beautiful. Cocking action very easy and well balanced. Definitely German quality construction.
Things I would have changed: Include better loading instructions. For example, how far to insert pellet with pellet loader. Illustrations for using gun could be better.
What others should know: Instructions not very clear or complete. Have fired about 200 pellets with sights and not yet getting consistent groupings. May need more shots before accurate. Will mount scope soon which will probably help.
Things I liked: The quality and craftsmanship of this rifle and in this price is excellent. The Rekord trigger and it's smoothness definitely adds to it's list of pluses. Cocking this rifle is a breeze with it's 18lb trigger pull. Accuracy is outstanding.
Things I would have changed: Absolutely nothing.
What others should know: So far I have not found any one pellet this rifle did not like. Also, if your arms are long you may want to extend the butt pad but the way it is fine for most everyone.

Are there stock extenders available for this rifle. It is little too short for me.
Not ones that are factory made. What a lot of folks do is make spacers to put between the buttpad and stock to get the appropriate length of pull.
I purchased this rifle marked HW-30S on a used gun rack. It does NOT have any safety whatsoever. It is in perfect condition and has a high grade diopter peep sight on it. Using medium weight .177 JSB pellets it only achieves 540-550 fps. Is this normal or is it down tuned for competition?
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.
