Weihrauch HW98 Air Rifle

  • Breakbarrel
  • Spring-piston
  • 11mm Dovetail rail
  • 2-stage adjustable Rekord trigger
  • Checkered hardwood stock
  • Adjustable buttplate
  • Adjustable cheekpiece


With over 100 years in the airgun industry, Weihrauch certainly knows how to create an amazing breakbarrel air rifle.

The HW98 is a gun destined for backyard greatness in target shooting and small game hunting.  This air rifle builds on Weihrauch’s long experience by keeping the ambidextrous stocks while adding an adjustable buttplate which cants left to right as well as moves up and down, along with an adjustable cheekpiece set into its unique beech wood frame, accented by black stippling along the forend and grip. 

Like other airguns by Weihrauch, the HW98 contains the famed Rekord trigger, a crisp, clean, 2-stage adjustable that’s been called on of the best spring gun triggers in the world.  While there are no open sights, the 98 includes an 11mm dovetail which begs for a high powered scope.  If you can’t tell by now, this is not your average breakbarrel!

With this combination of quality design, comfortable hold and prized features--make the HW98 your own!

Things I liked: I purchased a .22 version on a refurbished about 7 months ago. I love Weihrauch and Dianwerks. This rifle is one you can carry all day. I've hunted and foot stalked rabbits on my ranch. I run the 14.3gr hp, or JSB 25gr for 15-20 yard shots with 3 mil dots holdunder. It is so smooth and quiet that you can get 2nd, and 3rd shots if you miss your prey. I run a Hawke optic on this rifle with the Sports Match rings. This rifle would be a nice size for a youth or adult. You could shoot field and target competition it's so good. Weihrauch used star screws on the pivot at the break barrel. Very helpful in keeping it tight and smooth. Wonderful rifle to own.

Things I would have changed: Offer in .20cal please. My butt pad screws loosened. The previous owner must have over tightened. I fixed the issue by taking cedar splinters and inserting three in each hole, then tighten. Allen screws will bite splinters, and secure the buttplate. Then reinstall buttpad. This fix will work on similar issues. I would love to see the barreled action on a walnut stock, like the HW35E. Swing swivels would be nice for tree hunters. Not in love with the grip tape texture over diamond checkering even if it's laser cut nowadays. I still love the darn thing. I'm just older and oogle sexy air rifles with great styling.

What others should know: It's expensive, but it's worth every penny down the line. It is super accurate, and if you tweak the trigger down to an even lighter pull, you notice your groups look even better. It shoulders the easiest of all of my Weihrauchs. HW35E, HW97K, HW90. It is deceptively quiet. You may think it's slow. Watch out. I popped a rabbit near the feed barrel. The round exited the rabbit, went through the feed barrel, and through the feed scoop. It's not a super powerhouse, but it is powerful. I've hit rabbits, and they do a full flip forward in the air after impact. I think any varmint hunter will be pleasantly surprised by this one for the smaller game. Also, this would make a great survival rifle. You wouldn't give away your position, and two rabbits, a couple of doves sure beats survival package meals.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: Everything!!! No doubt about it! I have found the eureka of all Springer Airguns. Mine's a .22 I've had it for about a year. And let me tell you folks this is it !! Fit and finish is bar- none and that's not saying it all ... this air rifle puts the rest of the field to shame. The engineering and manufacturing is simply genius - it feels so solid in your hands you feel like it was designed specifically for you. It shoulders so well and the added( blued) steel shroud over the barrel adds that extra strength and ( so solid feel, there's no better feel) I'm convinced this airgun is what all springers should be judged by. it's so perfect from head to toe there is nothing that can be improved. Just cycling the rifle from cocking to squeezing off the trigger... and the trigger, what can I say, SO Smooth and beautifully crisp, and the recoil is amazingly short and concise and virtually no vibration felt, so all of your shots stay on target after the shot.

Things I would have changed: Absolutely nothing.... it's perfect just the way it is!

What others should know: This rifle is so sweet, super accurate [ same hole - 5 shot groups at 10 m, half inch at 30 meters.] And should, ( seriously) be considered as a family heirloom to be handed down for generations to come. Final word - if you purchase one of these gems you'll be happy & satisfied beyond your expectations. At the moment I'm saving my pennies for the .177 version And I know I won't be disappointed- it's that good my friends! Happy bullseye

Things I liked: This rifle is a tack hammer. At 10 meters bench rested, you get a single ragged hole with a five shot group. Even at 30 meters, you can cover the group with an aspirin tablet. Mine loves .177 RWS Superdomes best. The fit and finish are fantastic. Lifetime build quality!

Things I would have changed: Its a bit heavy to carry in the field if you hunt.

What others should know: This is a competition grade hard hitter at a great price. There are no iron sights. Dont skimp on glass. This rifle deserves good optics.

  • Kevin from USA asked:

    Will the .22 Special Order come with the new 2020 threaded barrel option?

    • Mark from USA:

      It should be new production. Yes.

  • TAEWAN from USA asked:

    1) What is the muzzle energy in 0.25? 2) Does all calibers come with a same spring?

    • Paul from USA:

      All depends on the true velocity of your rifle, you really need a choreograph to find that number,and you need to know the weight of the pellet in grains.

    • Mark from USA:

      22 ft lbs. The spring is the same in all calibers.

  • Francisco from USA asked:

    What is the cocking force in pounds and barrel rifling twist rate?

    • Tyler from USA:

      It's basically an R9, which is rated at 40 lbs of cocking effort, though I've never found them that hard. Usually in the mid 30s. Not sure on twist rate
