Weihrauch HW 75 Air Pistol
Read more about the Weihrauch HW75 in Dennis Adler's Airgun Experience Blog.
The HW75 is a match pistol that's suitable for informal matches, plinking and casual target shooting. It's a great way to practice trigger control and holding a gun. Additionally, you'll pay a lot more for a true 10-meter competition pistol, so this is an excellent entry-level pistol or for anyone who wants to shoot 10-meter targets but not participate in sanctioned events.

Things I liked: Accurate. no recoil. Great trigger. Dovetail on top for another electronic sight or scope. Good adjustable rear sight. The grips fit my hand perfectly. Easier to cock than many other ssp pistols. It won't replace my fwb 65 or the Baikal 46 but it is a keeper. If you have this gun you don't need a Beeman p1 or the P3.
Things I would have changed: Lower price, Higher velocity. But nothing is perfect.
What others should know: This not a training pistol for regular guns. You need a spring piston for the recoil for training. Despite the looks the pistol is balanced very well. Not awkward like it looks or clumsy. It takes a little practice to learn how to load the pellet. With practice loading is not a problem.
Things I liked: Heirloom Quality
Things I would have changed: Grips small for large hands (ditto for the P3). Make the scope grooves 11mm - they're actually about 13.462mm (0.530") as measured with a micrometer.
What others should know: Great pistol, Heirloom quality somewhat justifies its cost. Note my comments about the grips and the scope grooves - annoying, but not deal killers. I actually find my P3 a bit easier to shoot accurately. I have a Red Dot on mine, though it was a pain to mount because of the unusual groove spacing. The lack of recoil is both welcomed and spooky. I have no regrets!
Things I liked: Absolutely exudes quality. Great feel in the hand. Extremely repeatable accuracy - any inaccuracy is all mine.
Things I would have changed: Loading the pellet is a tad challenging the first couple of times, but easy to get used to.
What others should know: If you can afford this pistol, don't hesitate. It has essentially no recoil, so that can be either a good or bad thing. For me, it is desirable; however, some might want the P1 for non-pellet training.

What is the most accurate ammo for this gun? The manual says Diablo only, but I'm taking that with a grain of salt (or shouldn't I?). I've shot it with Crossman premier (7.9g, domed), and that shot pretty well. I only shot a few shots with H&N 8.18 gr wadcutter, and I think that was okay. Also, H&N 10.65 gr Baracuda and that DID NOT shoot well.
I love wadcutters with my rifle because they deliver a perfectly round hole. But the HW 75 has a lot less power, and you don't get that defined hole. Instead, it tears out a fairly big chunk of the target when using 10-meter paper targets.
I'd recommend keeping things below 9 grains. Try JSB and H&N pellets. Wadcutters typically preform the best.
Why can the WH75 not be used in sanctioned 10M events? But the Gamo Compact Target Pistol or Daisy Avanti 747 Triumph Match, for example, can?
The HW75 is legal. Please see NRA International Style Pistol rule book. You need to adjust the hW75 trigger weight to 500 grams, about 1.1 Lbs.
Is the dovetail 11mm or 14mm as I have heard state by others?
I have an HW75, and the scope grooves are measurably wider than 11mm - case closed. Using a micrometer, I got 0.530" or 17/32" or 13.462mm. I had to modify an 11mm to Weaver adaptor with a dremel tool to mount a Red Dot and have it centered on the barrel. BKL made a riser mount for 13mm grooves that works well, but does put the sight rather high above the barrel. Any sight that uses a mount that only adjusts on one side will definitely be off center with the barrel, so any windage correction will only be valid for one distance. I don't know why HW did this, since all their other products (except perhaps the P1/HW45) have 11mm grooves.
If you click on the Review,article,lastest buzz at the top of the page it will take you to Tom Gaylords review on this pistol ? It should answer ANY questions you should have about this pistol.
From what I understand is 13mm? Can someone find out for sure?
Specs state 11mm dovetail.
