Weihrauch HW98 Air Rifle
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!
|Max Velocity||930 fps|

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.

What is the cocking force in pounds and barrel rifling twist rate?
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
Why is this gun not listed in .20 caliber?
Because it's not currently being offered by PA in .20????
What 1" scope mount would you recommend for the HW98?
I like the Hawke Airmax line or the Sidewinder line. Both would hold up just fine. If you get a 1" tube scope, I would get this mount: Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Mount w/1"... If you go with a 30mm tube, then I would get this one: Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Mount w/30mm...
Ok! Opinions on a Nikon Prostaff Target EFR 3x9x40 with a BKL-288-MB 1" mount on this gun?
Let me rephrase. What is a good accurate/durable target scope and mount for this rifle? I want a good scope and do not want shock to ruin it.
I would recommend a one piece mount. Really need to know what objective size scope you intend to use though in order to make a good recommendation.
