Weihrauch HW100 Review
The range comprises two full length rifles – a ‘Sporter’ or ‘HW100 S’, and a thumbhole version, known as the ‘HW100 T’ – and shorter carbine options, the HW100 SK and HW100 KT. All four are available with a fully shrouded barrel and are designated at HW 100 FSB models. In addition, there’s an adjustable brown and black thumbhole laminate option for the rifle and carbine, as well as synthetic soft touch black and green derivatives, all of which are also available with the fully shrouded barrel. Note that whilst the traditional and thumbhole stocks are ambidextrous, the traditional walnut carbine stock is designed for right-handers only with no left-handed option. Standard across all models are: an 11mm dovetail rail, 14-shot rotary magazine regardless of calibre, two-stage adjustable trigger and sidelever cocking system. In terms of calibre, all are available in .177 and .22, with .20 offered on some models. Power delivery is 12 ft. lbs. with higher-powered FAC options. All models take a 200-bar fill which is achieved by pulling a plastic stopper from the fill port at the top of the cylinder and inserting the probe. A manometer at the front of the cylinder shows fill pressure.
