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.
Things I liked: Hello folks, first off I am a 62 year old avid fan of air guns as California laws are making firearms harder to buy and shoot, and the fact that I have been shooting air guns for 45 plus years beginning with my Daisy. Early on I had an FWB hunter, HW50, Crossman pump, Sheridan and others. I still own and shoot the HW50 which has been referb'd (40 plus years old). The anticipation of just receiving this rifle was heart pounding. Enough background, now, This rifle is a beautiful, well engineered magnificent German BEAST. Just holding it makes me feel in awe. I have not mounted a scope on it yet, but the open sights are accurate. The first shot I actually caught myself closing my eyes (I know, what a wimp). Accurate out of the box. I only have about 50 rounds through it and I have not had dieseling yet, but I know it is coming. VERY POWERFUL. I understand that you can dial the power back a bit, but I am leaving mine as is. It will blow through 1 inch hardwood no problem.
Things I would have changed: I cannot think of any other to include a Jack Links workout video.
What others should know: The best groups I get at 10 meters are through my custom 1322 Crossman with a red dot and six pumps. But, with that in mind, since I have approx. 10000 .22 pellets, I ordered the .22. I doubt I will be hunting over 40 yards. This rifle loves the JSB Match Diablo heavys 18.13 grain. Some folks have told me that since I bought a PCP, I would never shoot a springer/NP again. Quite the contrary, I find a great deal of satisfaction in hoisting, cocking, loading and shooting this monster. I have seen youtube videos of shooting at 50 yards. I will mount a UTG sniper and we will see. Very important to fully cock this rifle until the safety engages or you can hurt yourself. Cocking effort is about technique and power. I am an ex -lifter 210 lbs. and it is a workout. My opinion is that German guns are the best.
Things I liked: Wow! What a fine airgun. I purchased an HW 90 in .22" recently and few other air rifles match the quality this one has to offer. The finish on the stock and blued barrel is gorgeous. I love how this rifle has no plastic parts and also the auto-safety feature when the rifle is cocked. Metal and wood is the way to go. This rifle is ultra accurate(a tack driver!) and has smooth cocking action. This is a magnum air rifle, and it hits like a tank in .22". There is definitely a hefty price on this air rifle, but you WILL get what you pay for. If you are a serious airgunner that wants a serious air rifle, this is the one for you.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. I do not have a single complaint about this airgun. It is a true masterpiece of German craftsmanship.
What others should know: This airgun is definitely not a toy for boys. This is a magnum air rifle. It is on the heavy side and has a considerable cocking effort, so this thing is not meant for rookie airgunners. This air rifle can be used for target shooting in the backyard, but this gun is best used for hunting small to medium-sized game. It is on the loud side, but as I mentioned, it is a magnum air rifle, so that's what you get. The HW90 is the best airgun I have ever owned. Get one if you want a superior-quality air rifle that will last.

Wondering why the .25 is $50.00 more than .22, and .177. What would be the reason for the extra $50.00?
How do you mount a sling on this rifle?
Take a look at the Gamo Gun buddy sling, it wraps around the buttstock and barrel. Easiest option without installing swivel studs
Is barrel droop an issue with this rifle?
Not significant, as with RWS. I shimmed my scope with one layer of plastic trimmed from the plastic "bubble" a kid's toy came in.
