    Default Weihrauch HW98 - hidden gem

    Rarely in my airgun adventures have I come across a rifle that surprised me like this one...
    The HW98 has been around for more than 14 years...and yet no one in this country seems to have one.
    I have been eying them for ages and this year I took the plunge and sat out the 5 months necessary to receive one from the local agent..

    First impression out of the box?
    That beautifully blued heavy barrel shroud...the fully adjustable stock with that excellent stippling...Rekord trigger...
    Balance with a scope is perfect...
    Barrel lock-up...it's an HW!
    Firing cycle very very smooth for an untuned HW, far better than the 97Ks I have tried....can't wait to drop the Maccari kit in!



    pics tell the story

    It must be nice to receive something like this after waiting 5 months for it.

    Good luck with it. All the reviews i read on overseas forums state it as an excellent competitor.

    Guido, you a lucky fellow. That is truly a magnificent looking specimen. Can't understand why more suppliers don't provide that sort of stock.

    Very cool. Looking forward to more reviews...

    Congrats, looks amazing!
    IMHO although it has adjustable stock etc it still looks like a "real" rifle and not a space gun.
    What FPS?
