First I would like to say(Great Video) I have been up in the air between
the HW95 & the HW50.After having my right shoulder replaced less than a
year ago I think the HW50 will be a good choice,thanks to your great
review.I was looking at PCP guns but with all the added cost with the
support equipment I couldn't justify it.I hope you do some more reviews in
the future,Take Care and God Bless

Author Michael Pollini (1 year)
Jim I took your advice and bought this gun. It is amazingly accurate!
Recoil is non existant in my opinion. The scope stayed right on for every
shot. Very nice trigger as well. No more critters around my property.
Thanks for your help and great review!

Author Seracdac (3 years)
@46FreddieMercury91 The HW99s is not readily available in the US, it can be
ordered though I'm sure. I handled an HW50, and thats as big as I'd really
like. If I did go bigger than an HW50 I'd probably go for an HW95. But I'm
starting to reconsider my power needs. I've been having excellent luck on
the usual suspects at 18 yards (my backyards length) with my HW45 in .20
cal and red dot. I'll stick to what I have for now and when I move I may
just go for an HW50 in .22.

This rifle is very accurate and lightweight,more compact and recoil is more
little. My diana & hw 85 staying in dark corner since i had 50s I perhaps
hw 50 is better choice among medium range break barrel rifle.I dont

Author Jim Getzen (2 years)
Trust me on this: you don't want a 1200 fps air gun. Those guns I listed
will shoot at 850-925 fps with 7.9 grain pellets. That is the sweet spot
for maximum accuracy. You hit it on the head: 1200 fps is overkill and
needless (and doesn't really exist for springers anyway, except as
marketing hype in ads).

Author Jim Getzen (1 year)
Thank you very much. I'd love to do another one, even though it's a fair
amount of work. I just can't seem to find enough time these days.

Author mybluebelly (2 years)
Hello and thankyou for replying! Yes, it must be a defective weapon! When i
bought this air rifle, the moment i started using it, the pin-pressured
metal locking mechanism found on the break-barrel started chipping away the
metal groove on the main piece/body of the weapon. When i talked to the
seller/shop who sold it to me, he told me that the factory that made parts
for this weapon had burnt down :-) I never filed any warranty claims as i
was to young to bother with that.

Great review! You can go wrong with the Weihrauch airguns. Here, in Brasil,
they are really expensive, reaching easily the US$ 1.000 mark. But they
worth it.

Author Jim Getzen (2 years)
The spring probably softened a bit. If so, you lost a little power, however
it might not be noticeable. If it's a problem, you can always replace the

Author JERRYR708 (2 years)
I bought this because I liked the look and feel of this rifle right away.
This is the most accurate rifle I have fired using JSB Match Diabolo Jumbo
Exact pellets. Best trigger I have used with no creep at all. The break
barrel is a little work compared to most I have used. I like the iron
sights, which are not plastic and you don't need to rely on a scope. I like
the balance and light weight of the rifle, yet feels very solid. The rifle
a little louder than most.

Outstanding review Jim! Not seen every review that's out there, but of
those I have seen, yours is by far the most informative and entertaining.
Good work.

Author JERRYR708 (2 years)
I just purchased this rifle in the .22 cal version. After about 40 shots,
the bolts started to loosen. I re-tightened them and continued to fire
about another 50 rounds and a piece of the front of the stock broke off on
the left and a crack line appeared on the right. I noticed that the bolts
were loose again. It appears that when the bolts loosened, the barrel had
just enough play to recoil forward enough to slam into the front of the
wood stock interior wall piece that is only 1/8 inch thick.

Author tar1895 (3 years)
Nice review.Very professional

Author Seracdac (3 years)
Freddie and it seems the HW99 is equivalent to the Beeman R9 here and the
HW95 is the new HW50. So I probably will try the HW50 (HW95) or basically
the air rifle reviewed here. It gets a bit confusing because Beeman had
imported HW rifles but changed the names and some of HW's old offerings
have been renamed. I was always a fan of fast and small (.177) but I got my
HW45 in .20 as a gift and like I said have gotten great results, so I might
go for an HW50 in .22.

Author Jim Getzen (2 years)
Assuming you want to stick with a spring gun (as opposed to a PCP), I'd
recommend: - HW95 (same as Beeman R9) if you want a break barrel. It's like
a bit larger version of the HW50S. - HW97, Air Arms TX200, or Air Arms
Pro-Sport if you'd like a fixed-barrel with under lever cocking. All three
are very high quality and very accurate, but somewhat heavy.

Author Nuno Francisco (1 year)
heya, i will buy a hw50S in some weeks. what do you think about the wepon?
does yours have problems cooking? i saw many bad reviews on that point.
people tell than the cooking arm scratch the compression tube.

Author dtripakis (1 year)
You should not add a scope on a rifle first thing. Scopes are heavy,
expensive, fragile and take the fun away. They are not necessary on air
rifles, contrary to what the industry is trying to imply. You should not be
helping them in this. Havent you realized that you are actually testing the
scope and not the gun ?

Author mybluebelly (2 years)
Thanks for the good advice! I had a feeling that velocity doesn`t
neccesarily have to be beyond 1000fps to satisfy most people`s needs ;-)
It`s all about accuracy isn`t it!!! I found a domestic dealer that stocks
the HW97 fixed barrel, but it didn`t have a pricetag, but i will contact
the dealer for price info..i also came across pyramydair a long time ago so
i will of course consider those other alternatives. I`m pretty sure i will
go for a fixed barrel type weapon this time. Thanks again :-)

Author KnorpelDelux (2 years)
What do you think of the Weihrauch HW30S with "Rekord"-Trigger? I was
wondering whether I should get one. Thanks in advance.

Author Jim Getzen (2 years)
As for a new air rifle recommendation, I can try, but I would need much
more information. What would you use it for? How much power do you need?
What is your budget? Does weight matter? Etc.

Author passat11rus (3 years)
Hallo from mother Russia )))) I have this one.also i have diana 48 and
weichrauch HW 85.The hw 50s is the better with comparsion from each other

Author Jim Getzen (3 years)
@RimfireRat I know that some people consider the R8 one of the best rifles
ever made. I haven't shot one, so I can't say whether the HW50S is better
or worse. The R8 had a little less power, which can be good or bad,
depending on your needs.

Author Jim Getzen (3 years)
@killbird013 It's a Centerpoint 4-16x. It's a great value -- about $70-80.

Author mybluebelly (2 years)
Hello again! I looked up these weapons and they look very good. I guess i
favour the HW97. I don`t really know anything other than the break barrel
type, so i wouldn`t know why to get anything else though :-( Maybe this
would eliminate my previous bad experience with the HW50...What in your
opinion is a reasonable velocity limit for a high quality air gun? What
must one consider when getting a high powered air rifle pro/con?
Say..1200fps??? Or is this just a tad overkill and needless...?
