The HW97 is the successor to the popular HW77 model. Made in Germany by Weihrauch, this underlever airgun has all the power and accuracy you'll need to shoot field target or knock down metallic silhouettes (.177 recommended) or hunt small critters and eliminate those pesky rodents around your yard (.22 highly recommended).

The hardwood Monte Carlo stock has a raised cheekpiece and checkered pistol grip and forearm. The rubber buttpad gives you additional control.



It comes without sights, so you must mount a scope. The 11mm grooves in the receiver make that a quick job. If you like the ease of shooting a spring-piston gun, then the HW97K should be your next airgun.

Don't forget to pick up a variety of pellets, which are listed in the AMMO link. Several scopes have been suggested in our ACCESSORIES link, so pick one that works for the type of shooting you plan to do. Remember to also pick up some targets, cleaning gear and shooting glasses!

Things I liked: Mine was a blem stock deal, so I couldn't pass it up. The dent in comb was reduced by 90%. Took wet patches, and swelled it out. Took at least 10 patches. It's really a sweet size rifle. Just right for bench or field. It's so smooth to cock the rifle too. Very easy using the seated, butt-on-thigh stroke. Then on the upswing it makes a noise that sounds like a hydraulic hinge noise. It's freaking cool as heck. Now, as far as performance in .177 using H&N field pro 8.64gr it is a dream rifle. Holes in your holes type accuracy. I ran some Barracuda Hunter hp 10.5gr in there, and tweaked the elevation. They shoot dimes at 50 yards too. How fun is that?

Things I would have changed: I always tighten screws every single time I bring a rifle to the bench. This rifle does seem to loosen up if you shoot alot. So, if your scope loses zero, tighten screws up, then re-test. Use good tools too. Get a gun smith driver set $35-45 investment. Weihrauchs have a need for good slotted screwdriver tips!

What others should know: I don't normally shoot .177, but decided to try this rifle for this caliber based upon reviews. I was overwhelmed at the accuracy at 40-80 yards on .177. Use a good mount and Hawke Vantage SF. This rifle will amaze you as you shoot through the same hole.

Things I liked: Overall its a very nice rifle. Fit and Finish is excellent. Accuracy is also excellent. Trigger is one of the best I've seen on any air rifle. I've tried a number of airguns, and when a friend offered to let me borrow his "tuned" 97 for a weekend, I jumped at it. I basically tested the WK97 head to head with my Sig ASP20.

Things I would have changed: The cocking lever was a bit loose in the holder, and would rattle with every shot (I was told the gun shot count was around 1500 rounds). I had a difficult time with loading... there's just not enough room there for my big hands/fingers. It would really benefit from either a higher or adjustable comb..... I found myself having to "reach" to see well through the scope. Even though this was supposedly a "tuned" gun, it had an annoying "buzz" and vibration after each shot. I've only shot about 5 different "spring" guns....and they have all had the "buzz/vibration" to one degree or another.... that's just very annoying to me. Not having any preconceived notions or bias, I don't understand why anyone would choose a "spring" gun over a "piston" gun...unless they just want to spend their time tinkering with a gun versus shooting it.

What others should know: I am fairly new to the airgun world, and have tried out a number of rifles so far. When looking for my first air rifle, everyone pointed at the WK97.... but I thought it awfully pricey compared to a Sig ASP20..... and I ended up purchasing the Sig. The Sig is such a good gun, I wanted to get my hands on a 97 and compare the two, just to see what all the fuss over the 97 was real. Now that I've used/shot the 97, I can see where people really like it, but honestly, I have to believe that the 97 is more hype and brand snobbery than anything..... especially considering that the WK97 is TWICE the price of the Sig ASP20 (synthetic), and it is certainly NOT twice the gun. Of course they are two different guns, but for literally HALF the money of the 97, you can purchase a made in America Sig ASP20, that is every bit the rifle the 97 is, and in some areas a better one. I didn't realize just how much "brand snobbery" ruled the airgun world until I tried these two guns head to head.

  • robert from USA asked:

    I am close to making a decision to buy the HW97K for target shooting using a .177 pellet. With an average weight of 8.5 grain. What speed the pellet will exit the barrel at ? Thanks a lot.

    • Mark from USA:

      Approx 930 FPS. You will find the HW 97 shoots more accurately with a 9-10 gr pellet.

  • robert from USA asked:

    The photos of the HW97K appears to have a moderator, is it just for cosmetic or it does work as a moderator ? What is the cocking poundage ? Thank a lot.

    • Mark from USA:

      The muzzle brake is solid. Not a suppressor. The gun takes approx 40 lbs of cocking effort.

  • Paul from USA asked:

    Where is the anti-bear trap located on this rifle?
