Pyramyd Air tested both the .177- and .22-caliber airguns and found the velocities to be higher than what the manufacturer has stated. Below are some comparisons:

.177 caliber:
Manufacturer--820 fps
Our tests--Up to 849 fps with 7.0-grain RWS Hobby pellets

.22 caliber:
Manufacturer--574 fps
Our tests--Up to 650 fps with 11.9-grain RWS Hobby pellets & 595 fps with 14.66-grain Beeman Field Target Trophy pellets

While this is the "S" model and has a Rekord trigger, the manufacturer does not stamp the gun with an "S."

Things I liked: The butt stock length was a bit long for me, It fit my hubby better. I like the length of his Diana 48 better, but that gun is too heavy for me. This one is much lighter. The wood stock has some great checkering too! The cocking effort took a little getting used to, but was fine once I did. The sights that it came were nice, with different inserts for the globe, and a rotating choice of 4 notches on the rear leaf. Though I thought it kind odd having a leaf rear/w/globe front. The trigger is phenomenally good, and accuracy was wonderful, UNTIL...

Things I would have changed: The gun may be too light! The wooden stock design needs changing, and/or beefing up. After about 80-100 rds, group size opened up considerably, and upon inspection my hubby found all the screws had loosened up, and the front of the stock on both sides in front of the barrel pivot were cracking. Also, the auto safety is odd for a right handed shooter. it releases left to right. Good for a lefty, but I would have preferred it right to left.

What others should know: Pyramid air exchanged it for another one, free, but the replacement had buggered up screws, especially the front sight screw. It looked like someone used budget wedge blade screwdrivers instead of more proper hollow ground type screwdriver bits. Whether we got a REMAN, or someone new at the factory was being trained we don't know It was definitely not put together well. It too was sent back, but for a refund. All told we were less than impressed and we're moving on to a different brand.

Things I liked: EVERYTHING!!! Mine is the .177 - this is a light weight rifle with a cocking effort of about 20-25lbs and shoots 8 grain lead pellets around 775fps that's pretty good considering the spring piston is light and short travel. another thing I like about these German made heirlooms is the tight tight tight tolerances - I mean talk about precision machine hand built workmanship. I've only put around 200 rounds thru mine and out of the box it was shooting ragged hole 10 shot groups @ 15 meters the size of a dime! Everything I bought for the rifle (scope..Hawke 3-12x40 Airmax compact) the rings 30mm - everything was from Pyramyd Air, I even did the 20 for 20 - they really did a great job with mounting the scope and measuring velocities at the factory. I would most definitely recommend this rifle to anyone who wants to experience fine German craftmanship and truly accurate results in the field. Thank You Pyramid for keeping up the high standard.

Things I would have changed: Now the only thing I would like to see on this rifle and some other Weihrauch's is thin white lines on the edges of the rear sight ( U-shape) to help you see that you are centered in the pocket with the front blade against dark backrounds the edges of the rear sight seem to get lost sometimes especially with follow-up shots. And I don't know if that would be a terribly great expense on Weihrauch's part but I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for that feature.

What others should know: I am not going to complain about the twang on this gun (spring pistons have a twang recoil noise) because it really isn't that much - not like the HW80 ,which I think is considerable, compared to the HW50. But... I got some of that red lube in a tube (from Pyramyd called TUNE in-a-TUBE) You take the stock off - apply the Tune in a tube (red thick lube) on the spring piston area only (it's a syringe type tube with a needle point- type applicator) so you can reach inside the spring piston area. Apply a liberal amount all over the spring area and in the nooks and cranny's as much as you can,about ( 1/4 to 1/3 of the tube ) and then put the stock back on - secure tightly - and then break the barrel and work it a few times without actually engaging. Then simply load a pellet fire it and Voila !!! no more twang - it shoots like a gas piston rifle the twang is gone and I think it improves accuracy as well (less vibration if you know what I mean)

  • Kevin from USA asked:

    Looking to mount a Hawke 3-9x40 mm scope with a Leapers accushot 1 piece mount. Will this setup work for this particular gun? Thx

    • Mark from USA:


  • Willam from USA asked:

    How about noise level of the .177? Neighbors here are sensitive to air gun discharges, but it is the only way to control the chipmunk problem.

    • Mark from USA:

      This gun will be not heard beyond 35 feet or so. This is as quiet as spring powered guns get.

  • Alfonso from USA asked:

    What is tne LOP or lenght of pull on this rifle? Would it be suited for a 9 year old boy?
