Weihrauch HW57 Air Rifle

  • Spring Piston
  • Underlever
  • Minelli beech stock
  • Ambidextrous
  • Checkered grip and forearm
  • Fiber-optic front sight
  • Adjustable/removable rear sight
  • 11mm Dovetail rail

Weihrauch has been building quality air rifles since 1899 and certainly knows a thing or two about producing a great spring gun. Exhibit A: The Weihrauch HW57.

Featuring the legendary Rekord trigger, and an innovative loading system, the HW57 has the power and style airgunners long for in their rifles. Its finely crafted Minelli stock adds a level of classic styling to this sturdy underlever.

To shoot your HW57, cock the underlever to reveal the auto-rise breech magazine and load up a single pellet. This unique design ensures that your pellet skirt won’t be deformed while loading. Just push the magazine down, disengage the auto safety, and you’re ready to shoot! Each HW57 includes a removable rear sight that sits on the 11mm dovetail rail. The famed Rekord trigger means your pulls will be crisp and clean, adding to this rifle’s overall accuracy.

If you’re looking for performance, power, and quality look no further than the HW57.

Things I liked: I like underlevers better than breakbarrels in general. I'm not too concerned about the breakbarrel vs. underlever accuracy issues, These days, quality breakbarrels seem to be just as accurate as any underlevers out there. I reckon because it's a more balanced look and feel to me...yeah, that's pretty subjective, but, there it is. I got this guy as a lighter weight alternative to my R1 and TX200, and it is that, at the end of the line! Also, it's a stepping stone to another rifle on my radar, the HW97K. After a few weeks of rockin' and rolllin', I finally got this rifle to where I want it to be, and it's a worthy addition to my air rifle stable!

Things I would have changed: I'm not certain there's anything that's gonna change with this design. There's a ton of negativity out there about this rifle, on the other hand, there's about an equal number of folks that claim it's the most accurate rifle they own, and it would be the last to go out of their keeping. I'm somewhere in the middle. I've had to work thru some thorny issues before the rifle ended up being as accurate as any that I own. It took some work to get it there. I hear folks cry that Weirauch should have designed the action along the lines of an HW77/97, but the purpose was, I believe, to develop a light weigh, easy handling adult rifle, and that they did. The 77/97 design is by nature, heavier...more dependable and less finicky, to be certain.

What others should know: Right out of the box, it was a sweetheart, and performed up to my expectations...or better. But then, it started to shotgun all over the place, then my neighbor didn't push the loading tap down all the way, and blew out the seals (yeah, I know there's a joke about that). So, I made the command decision to fix the problems myself, and discovered that in addition to the damage caused by my buddy, there were significant burring in the compression chamber which affected the piston seal. I deburred, sized and installed a Vortek seal, and lube tuned it. Installed a Bug Buster scope, and shot several hundred rounds thru it, and it's back to being a sweetie. It is a finicky airgun, no doubt, very challenging, but that's why I shoot a springer! It is most definitely a keeper, but lemme tellya...if you buy one of these, you'd better either have some skills, or be ready to develop some skills. Bottom line...I got my money's worth, but it wasn't a laydown, by any means! Next...the HW97K!

Things I liked: Accuracy, trigger, power, fit and finish, pretty much everything.

Things I would have changed: Loud spring when fired, but not horribly qbjectionable. Chamber is too short for some heavier/longer pellets and will bend the skirt if the pellet isn't seated properly. Be careful of firing when the chamber is raised, the report will make your ears ring if you do... Too bad that couldn't be interlocked with the safety. Not much else to change.

What others should know: It's a great rifle overall. I bought a refurbed .177 cal HW57 from Pyramyd Air about 10 years ago and I still have it and enjoy shooting it! No regrets on buying this!! /Dave

Things I liked: The fit and finish are great. The trigger is top of the line. Cocking is easy and the loading port is easy to use. The iron sights are just fine and really require little (if any) adjustments. I've owned this rifle for a little over a year and it has become one of my favorites because of it's accuracy. It has velocity numbers about 5 to 7 percent higher than the HW50s with FPE in the 11 - 12 range.

Things I would have changed: Nothing.

What others should know: Don't let this price scare you off, it's worth this and more.

  • James from USA asked:

    What is the cocking effort on this?

    • Will from USA asked:

      I wonder if people who have shot this gun like the placement of the rear sight. I think it is easier to focus on front and rear sights when the rear sight is located forward on the action. This setup is like a Chinese B3 with dovetail mount notched rear sight, that isn't so hot IMHO. Comments?

      • Tyler from USA:

        It's easier with it mounted forward on the dovetail as shown in the pics. You can move it along the dovetail to whatever position you prefer. Works pretty well as shown in my experience.

    • Terry from USA asked:

      Is the rifle backyard freindly?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Yes, at least for me
