HW100K Review

I got hold of a Weihrauch HW100K rifle for a review last week. Over the past 8 days or so, I've used this gun for field target shooting, plinking and some vermin control. The conclusions I came to are:

Good points:
- Accurate, can put pellet on top of pellet from 30-40 yards
- Well engineered, finish on the barrel was superb and the stock had very nice graining
- Quite heavy which some people may find is a pain, but I found it helped to keep the gun more stable

Bad points:

- Silencer cannot be removed from barrel and it is quite poor to be honest
- Sidelever cocking is poor
- Heavy
- Expensive, not fantastic value for money

Overall, I'd give this rifle a 8/10 - If only the silencer could be removed to fit an aftermarket one, and the gun was given a different cocking option it would be higher.

  13. I have a M16A1 from Classic Army, long version, full metal and everything that just kicks ass. A bit expensive too but really worth the money. Just out of curiosity how much did you pay for it?

  22. 8/10 still seems pretty good for those bad points, it must be pretty damn accurate.

  23. I used to have a paintball gun, a few years ago - and then I went to look for it and could not find it. I am not sure what happened to it. I still have a 20oz CO2 tank.

  24. Why is a silencer on that type of rifle anyways? It seems odd that the rifle excels in everything else but that aspect alone. How was the recoil on such a heavy gun?
