I bought the original version HW-77 a couple of years back from D&L when I noticed that Weihrauch was altering the stock for the new model. Not that the current 77 isn't great too but the older version is the one that I had wanted ever since I got an early 90's Beeman catalog included in the box with a cheap and nasty Marksman rifle I bought back then (I had no idea where I could even look for a good airgun at the time) and saw that colour picture of the HW-77 in it. It's beautifully made, has a nice trigger and is a pleasure to cock and load because of how precisely the mechanism cycles. Heavy though! I have the 5-15X40 Bushnell Legend scope I got from the forum store mounted on it and they go well together. I still want an HW-97KT and HW-98 too!

Last time I looked, SSSO had one at a great price in their dwindling stock... :wink:


I'm trying to buy that .177 HW77k from SSSO, but sadly it is PAL and I don't think they have a de-tuned spring :( I am still waiting for them to confirm. IF they have one, I'll make the plunge.

I love my HW30S but I am a big guy and that rifle is too small and it's awkward for me to shoot.

DL airgun have the HW97 but it doesn't come with any iron sights, which is what I prefer to use, so that entire model/submodels is off limits for me.


Hey Riz, I notice that 77 in no longer on the SSSO site...did you manage to scoop it up? If so, great, youre going to love it!

Oh...you may notice the Walnut Brocock PCP isnt there any longer either..(cough cough) :) :)

Nope, wasn't me! I can't buy it yet, no PAL. If I had my PAL I'd already own it.

The HW97 is super nice but I'm old fashioned, need me them iron sights. Scopes and I don't get along, and I tried.

Best airgun I have ever owned and worked on. Accurate, solid and beautiful.

Do you find that the .177 high power version has any accuracy issues? I'm a bit worried about firing off a .177 pellet at such high velocities. But I suppose if they sell all sorts of models that do this very thing, it must be ok.


My HW97 (high power) .177 has NO accuracy worries. It is good enough to head or chest shoot gophers to 56 yards. It prefers Predators for hunting and Cometa 4.51's for paper shooting. The 'preds' do almost as well accuracy wise. 1/4" groups at 20 yards are the norm for the JSB Cometa pellets - and has shot some groups in the 1/10" size at 20 yards. It runs 872fps with 8.2gr. JSB 4.51" RNs. The crossman HP's at 7.93gr. ran 895fps and grouped very well, but usually had one or two fliers out of every 10 shots.

One of the fellows at the local range uses an HW97, for his air rifle silhouette competition shooting and practice. I don't know if it is sub 500fps or not, however but doubt it it. It is very quiet, though.

This might help- here is my Blackline HW97 at 20 yards, with the groups and pellets used. when you hit the right ones, it's evident.

Image

note- if you superposed the two Cometa 4.51mm groups, one over the other, that probably would not have enlarged the group over .157"- that would be 10 shots into less than 2/10" inch centre to centre

Note, several other pellets, innocuous as they might be, showed promise as well. This is a straight out of the box rifle.

I bought a HW77 laminate stock in .22cal. Mine was a PAL version and after about two weeks I sold it again. It is a beautifully made gun, nicer than any gun I have owned. It is very heavy however. Almost 10lbs without a scope, which is heavy to pack in the field and heavy for extended shooting sessions. I never scoped mine, but with iron sights it wasn't any more accurate than my Chinese Slavia breakbarrel copy I paid $35 for. I even had a friend shoot it who shoots airguns regularly. He couldn't get great accuracy with it either. I now own a Salvia 620, It is light, powerful and shoots much more accurately than the HW77 did. I also paid $100 for it. The HW77 is a beautiful gun but I don't think I will buy another. Just my experience, from the previous posts I am in the minority.
