Weihrauch HW97KT - Synthetic - Stainless Action
Weihrauch was founded in 1899 in Zella-Mehlis alongside other famous firearms manufacturers such as Walther and Anschütz. Following WWII as they were not allowed to produce firearms, Weihrauch put their efforts into making the finest sporting airguns in the world..and they still do.
This exciting fixed barrel air rifle has an under-lever cocking action and delivers amazing, spring powered accuracy. An evolution of the HW77K it's especially developed for field-target and silhouette shooting.
The synthetic versions are designed to be light and durable in the field but still able 'soak up' felt recoil. The 'thumb-hole' stock makes it easy to shoot with a pistol grip and rubber butt-pad to give you great control. It also features the famous, adjustable, two stage, Rekord match trigger with auto safety catch and a dovetail rail onto which you can fit scope mounts.
This variant has a polished 'Stainless Steel' finish on the action.
Well balanced with an easy, smooth cocking action, minimum recoil and an integral moderator, it's just as happy in the field as it is on the range. It's an ideal choice for the shooter who values performance combined with sleek good looks and a superb finish.
Overall Length: 1015mm
I was very impressed by this rifle. I was told not to expect too much straight out of the box........ but I was pleasantly surprised!!!!!! Using a decent pellet, and being a PCP shooter, I knew to expect recoil. Having said this, once the rifle was sighted in, I was not ready for the results I got. On a 25 metre range I was getting a tight group with a few bulls too. VERY IMPRESSED And I was told this can only improve the more the rifle is bedded in and the barrel leaded.
I was also very impressed with the level of service from Ronnie Sunshines. I ordered the Weihrauch 97KT stainless in my preferred .177 calibre and it was delivered to my local RFD the next day free of charge, where I promptly picked it up. Brilliant service !!!!! Once again a very big thank you from me.
