The only Weihrauch springer I had was the HW98. It could shoot through twice as many cans of lager as the BSA Lightning Tactical (empty cans of course) :)
It was an amazing gun, although it was quite heavy

Well I would have tested it on numerous rabbits/rats, but it took far to long getting them all to stand in a line :tongue2:

You could try looking for a BSA Super 10, imagine an R10 but without the problems and a nice side bolt action...

apparently the older hw's are better than the new 'improved' ones (springers)
going to be stripping my 95 down and my new 97 when i get it next week.. lets see what 'surprises' await me.. metal shards, split seals..badly cut springs etc..
Hopefully none but you never know...

the problem with weirauch is they had a bloody good product to start with. so they thought we need to do it up to keep customers comeing. so now there at the point where they OVER complicated there rifles. Harley davidson did exacly the same thing with there bikes to the point that if you fart on one of there bikes a sencer is tripped :( Guess this is why i love british rifles more. there built to last but simple on the mechanics :)

It was between the Air Ranger and the Tactical Airwolf, but a gun that needs a key and that needs plugging into a wall socket to charge is just weird :huh:
