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: Easy operation, full sized hand grip, default trigger, presentation.
Things I would have changed: More explicit maintenance instructions, produce manual that doesn't include spring piston advice, indented markings instead of laser etched.
What others should know: After using the Chinese Beeman P17 single stroke pneumatic for a few months this was my upgrade. I immediately noticed trigger. Instead of an unpredictable crunch with the sub $40 P17, I now have a predictable break. Continuing the comparison, this new German pistol completes its cocking stroke far easier than the P17. Where my shirt would get caught in the action while forcing the P17 closed, this P2, ahem, HW75 is much lighter and is completed without using the leverage of the knee or gut. The rear sight is directly over the leverage to cock the P17. The HW75 rear sight is placed further back. It shouldn't affect either pistol sight setting, but is unnerving with the P17. I love my P17 mainly for the fun per dollar ratio. I also love this HW75 for meeting all points I felt deficient on the P17. Both pistols are receiving equal attention, love and absolute lack of regret. 10 meter target shooter.
Things I liked: Well made and accurate. Trigger is very good.
Things I would have changed: Front sight is not high enough, had to bottom out rear sight to sight in for point of aim. Would like to have some material removed under trigger guard for a higher hold.
What others should know: The reviews I read commented on how difficult the Gun was to pump. I did not find this to be a problem. Would like to see all metal parts and a better rear sight.
Things I liked: Great grip for me. I have long narrow hands and the grip fits perfectly. The sights. My next visit to the optometrist will have me walking out with glasses. But with these sights, I have shot 5shot one hole groups on occasion. With a Bushnell Trophy red dot I shot seven 5 shot one hole groups from a bench rest at 37 ft. Trigger. Perfect, clean, crisp right out of the box. I am leaving it as is. As I only shoot paper spot targets, spinners, pop cans, velocity is not a problem. I have springers, CO2 and now the HW-75. I enjoy them all immensely. The HW-75 filled a niche. Now I am going back to give the HW a workout with Meisterkugeln pistol 7.0 gr, pellets which are very accurate. I could not ask for a better pneumatic pistol for my purposes.
Things I would have changed: Rear sights are adjustable, however there does not appear to be a detent in either windage or elevation.
What others should know: Detent needed in rear sight adjustments.

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.
