I've got an HW97 and I'm a happy camper. Great quality and accuracy. The Weihrauch "Rekord" trigger is very nice aswell.
They can be modded a bit... but with such a nice gun what is there to mod? Aside from a moly lube up and possibly an aftermarket mainspring/ piston seal, there isn't much work needed.
Like others asked, what exactly do you want to know about them?

I have five HW rifles. Unless you are buying a brute like a HW77 they are no heavier than any of my other springers. I have no issues dragging my HW57 out to the woods for some grouse hunting. It's fairly plain looking but very accurate. I used to use my HW35 with the thumbhole stock for hunting but then found out that they are a little rare so decided to start using the 57. If you want a sub 500fps model also check out Specialty Shooting as they seem to have several. They often have the HW50 which isn't to expensive, pretty or heavy for outdoor adventures. My HW55 doesn't get as much use as some of my other target rifles. It's so accurate it takes all the challenge out of target shooting in the basement. :)

Thanks, stuff like the Rekord trigger, i never heard of it so just want to know how they operate.
It sounds like it's very well put together rifle amd really needs no mod's other than like you say aftermarket mainspring, piston seal. And a good old Moly lube is all thats needed once in awhile.
Its a buy it and shoot it & enjoy it rifle, lol, and thats what im kind of wanting. Thanks 8)

Stoeger X5 (until recently 8) ) the HWs are a bit more expensive than the others but you do get what you pay for. You haven't "stacked" pellets with your ex-Stoeger or your Phantom... I bet you will stack pellets with a HW. If you're looking at the HW30S it is a fine rifle, same as the Beeman R7. It will outshoot your previous rifles by a wide margin. If you love the "black beauties", check out the HW50S chrome/black at SSSO - detuned in .22 cal it will be a sweet stallion for your stable! I may get one myself yet.

Hey Benny.

Thanks for the feedback.
I was chatting with Rhonda and she said they were getting some HW50's in soon :D
I dont have any issues with weight it can't way much more than the Phantom, its 6.2 lbs no scope.

And i dont understand why some guys buy really nice accurate rifles and then only use them at the range ?
If its a well made rifle that shoots very accuate why the hell wouldn't you take it hunting !? :lol:
Thats what ya want a great shooting good looking rifle ! 8)
Its like buying a race car, and just drivng it to get milk at the corner store :? makes no sence to me, thats just my opinion, to each his or her own.
And i am looking for a great looking ! very accurate ! Hunting rifle 8)
The first scratch always sucks but once thats done its broken in, :lol: :wink:

LOL, ya the ex Stoeger & Phantom i hope can't shot as good, or we have all been screwed, LOL

But i know what your saying Duckemeister.
I will look at the Beeman R7 never heard of that one, as i am still an " old newbie " :wink:

Im just getting ready for a fine,fine rifle thats all. And looking good is part of it, the rifle that is.
So like i said in the other post, it always sucks scratching it the first time, but it's over and done with after that. And im a finishing carpenter so stripping it very 3 years and re-finishing it would be fun :D Cheers

I don't own may air rifles but the one that I have are Weihrauch, I have a 77 and a 97 and finally after waiting since December I have a 98 coming in the next 2-3 weeks.
If it's quality that you are looking for and value for your money I personally think that Weihrauch is the way to go.
They are not inexpensive but if you look after them I bet you will pass them on to your kids.
If you've enjoyed you Phantom you will certainly like a weihrauch, maybe wait a bit longer and save up some more cash and get a HW95 or a 97.

Good luck
