Here are some of the benefits of a gas spring over a metal mainspring:
  • Smoother cocking
  • Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque
  • No spring fatigue, even if you leave it cocked for hours
  • Functions perfectly in cold weather
  • Lasts longer than a metal spring

Weihrauch is known for making superior-quality rifles. In fact, they set the standard over 50 years ago, and everyone else has been playing catch-up! While there are many other well-made rifles being made today, there's a bit of nostalgia for many airgunners who know that you just can't go wrong when you buy a Weihrauch airgun.

The first thing you'll notice is the well-proportioned stock. Next, you'll admire the beautiful, deep bluing. Then, the accuracy. It doesn't matter how beautiful they make the gun if it's not accurate. HW guns are known for their pinpoint accuracy. Even if you never put a scope on your gun, you'll still enjoy repeatedly hitting the 10-ring.

The Weihrach HW90 breakbarrel air rifle is a good hunting gun. Shoot small- to medium-sized pests and game. The gas spring easily stands up to being cocked while you wait for the ideal shot to be taken. It won't weaken like metal mainsprings. Hunting with air rifles is becoming more common, and many states now list specific game that can be taken with them.

If you're not a hunter but want a quality air rifle for plinking or target shooting, the HW 90 will give you decades of service.

Things I liked: I like this rifle better than my Ruger 10/22 and have more fun with it. So far it's my one and only pellet rifle. It's rugged, reliable, accurate and does what it's supposed to. I can't wait to hunt with it. I heard it's a scope eater but that doesn't bother me because I'm sticking with iron sights. I use the smallest apertures and they are simple to change out. I like that I can reset the safety once it's loaded and cocked. I also like that the screws on this rifle don't back out and I don't have to locktite anything. I've got the barrel, receiver, and stock coated in Renaissance Wax Polish. It's probably going to outlive me.

Things I would have changed: Maybe a better instruction guide. Other than that the rifle is good to go out of the box.

What others should know: The break barrel is not that hard to cock. It requires technique and not big muscles as stated earlier. The pellet rifle maybe expensive but it's worth it and you won't be heart broke on what you spent after receiving it.

Things I liked: Weihrauch is well know for quality and value, this is no exception. Mine chrono's at 763 consistently, trigger is about 1.8 lbs. The gas piston is smooth and there is zero "twang". It is an accurate rifle that is a solid performer. The weight is well balanced and holds a scope well. Bluing is top notch and the fit and finish is typical German quality.

Things I would have changed: I would love it if there was an option of a walnut or laminated stock with custom heels.

What others should know: Buy one, you pay one time up front and you will have an accurate and powerful gun for life.

Things I liked: I bought the .25 caliber wood rifle. Superb construction. Another case of "you get what you pay for". Fit and finish is excellent. Blue finish is excellent. Cocking mechanism looks very substantial and very well made. Accuracy is excellent with the iron sights. I doubt if I will scope this rifle; I like the simplicity of iron sights. The globe sights are excellent; I use the wide post insert. The inserts all work well and are secure within the globe sight. Checkering at pistol grip is nice. The safety functioned properly. My purchase was a refurbished rifle; looked brand new, no issues.

Things I would have changed: Trigger is a bit light, but it is a two-stage type and it works fine. There is a change in pull weight as the first stage ends and the trigger actuation begins. Trigger breaks cleanly. It took a few shots to get the feel of the trigger and not actuate the firing mechanism before I was ready to. Forestock needs checkering, as the finish is smooth and slick. Owners manual is not very comprehensive. It does not give good information about lubricating the cocking mechanism and cleaning the bore. Most of the instructions are just tiny pictures with arrows, and require some interpretation. Weihrauch can do better with the manual.

What others should know: There is no twang or vibration when fired, more of a small thump. Rifle does not seem to be hold sensitive. Noise level of this rifle is medium. Cocking resistance is strong but not a problem. I place the rifle butt onto my pants pocket, 1st hand on the barrel near the rear sight, 2nd hand on the barrel at the front sight; after starting cocking a short ways (an arc), I then move the 1st hand to the barrel at the front sight, and then use both hands to pull the barrel down through the full arc of cocking. Proper cocking is more technique than difficult. I bought this rifle to clear out some squirrels; so I will not be using it for a lot of repetitive target shooting. This rifle is not made for anyone smaller than (say) 140 lbs and 5'-7" tall.

  • Harold from USA asked:

    Anyone know the barrel twist rate on the HW90?

    • Harold from USA:

      I received an answer from Weihrauch. 1:16 twist from the factory. Good to know.

  • Harold from USA asked:

    Will Williams FP-AG-TK Aperture Sights work in conjunction with the HW90 stock front sites? I want to stick with irons and want a longer line of sight.

    • Harold from USA:

      I read someone comment on the HW80 review and he said he got good groups results with the FP-AG-TK Aperture Sights. I'm going to try this out.

  • Scott from USA asked:

    Wondering why the .25 is $50.00 more than .22, and .177. What would be the reason for the extra $50.00?

    • Thomas from USA:

      WHAT if any is advantage of 25 cal. vs 22 cal. other than velosity loss
