Here's our review of the Weihrauch HW97

Transcript

Hi, it's Peter here from the Air Gun Centre. I've got four rifles here to show you. They're all Weihrauchs and they're all 97. So Weihrauch HW 97, there are four types of them. Basically, you've got your original Weihrauch 97, which is your standard sporter beach ambidextrous stock, so it fits both left and right shooters, which is really good. It's got all the usual Weihrauch equipment. It's got the automatic safety catch, which, if you watch, I push the button on the end, pull the lever down, cock it, you can see that the buttons pop towards me. The little red indicator has disappeared. You would now load the pellet in the end of the barrel. It's got an anti catch system inside the rifle. So your thumb's totally safe in there, even though you're putting it inside that. With a sliding cylinder, that's not a problem. So you put it in there, close the thing up like that. If I push the safety catch off, you now should be able to see the little red indicator pops out there. That tells you that the rifle's safety is off and it's dangerous and ready to be shot. So we've got the regular Weihrauch one piece trigger unit. The record one piece trigger unit, it doesn't get any better for me. That is a fabulous, fabulous trigger. Really smooth rifle to shoot. Fairly quiet, minimal recoil, because they're really now quite modern and well finished inside. They shoot beautifully. Very smooth and quite quiet. So that is your standard Weihrauch 97. They then do this model, which is the Weihrauch 97 KT. Again, a beach stock, but as you can see, it's got a thumbhole, so that's a thumbhold version. Everything else on the rifle is exactly the same. The metal work is 97, but it comes with that rather nice thumbhole stock and the adjustable butt pad. So a couple of nice touches there. We then move on to the tactical versions of the same rifle. So this is the Weihrauch HW 97 KT tactical. So again, it's a thumbhole stock, black tactical. Everything else is the same safety catch, trigger unit, fabulous sliding breach, the whole lot. So there you go, that's the tactical version. And then we've got this rather attractive Weihrauch 97 KT stainless. As you can see, the metal work is a nice satin nickel finish, which I think is rather attractive. More popular, really, with the target shooter rather than the hunter. But again, fabulous looking thing, beautiful quality. All four of these rifles are legendary, really. They've been around for a long, long time. That's because they're very good and they'll be around for a lot longer yet. Super pieces of kit from Weihrauch.
