    You never here anyone mention the HW85.

    Why? Is there something wrong with it?

    Had a chance to scoop one, but wasn’t sure. Crow

    Can't get them in the US anymore. AOA use to import them. Same gun as the HW85 but with a longer barrel. Easier to cock.

    I do believe that the HW85 is the same rifle as the Beeman R10.

    The R8 is an absolute pleasure to shoot. Relatively small and light, not huge power, very accurate. Quite nice looking too.

    R8's are the earlier HW50. Yeah, they're sweet

    The HW95 replaced it rather nicely IMHO

    I think no one mentions the HW85 because in the age of 100 yd benchrest and PCPs the only break barrels that are frequently in the common discourse are the HW95, the Diana 34, or new shooters asking about entry level guns like the Hatsan 95.

    It's a shame though – the Beeman R10/HW85 is a great platform. I've won the PAC Gunslynger Piston division twice with my .20 R10 so it's one I'll never give up. It's been Russ Best tuned so not quite stock 🙂

    They really are fantastic guns.

    I heard this from Straight Shooters when I got both .22 and .177 about 10 years ago.

    I wanted to know the R numbers with the HW numbers and then I found out more than I really wanted but I did digest it.

    There is no doubt if you have an HW50 you'll be in the "middle gun" range that can do MORE than expected.

    I shot a running squirrel along our fenceline at 25 yards (on the run with a scope!) and whacked him off the fence into the neighbor's yard who was happy to "get rid of the pests" as I was.

    Deal is though; try out the HW50 in the .20 and use regular weight pellets (JSB Exact) to really see what the HW50 model is capable of doing TODAY!  It is an historic achievement and I BOUGHT TWO!

    The R10 is the same as the HW85, it's just in between the R9/HW95 and the R1/HW80. Krale may have them for sale, they are made different now then they were years ago. The old ones had a screw on rear cap like the R1 and a separate raised scope rail.

    Here is my Beeman R series for comparisons; R1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 & RX2

    The only difference is the barrel length and they do take an extra spacer when tuning as they use the same tune kit as the HW95/R9. This one is strong at close to 19 foot pounds with alloy pellets and 17.5 with lead. It is considerably lighter than an HW80 and less bulky.

    Thanks everyone, you really are wealth of knowledge. And knowing what I know now, there’s no reason not to get a HW85 now. The one I saw was .22. Crow

    Appears to have a thicker compression tube with the dovetails cut into it now instead of the old screwed on base that had it's roots in the BSF 55. Ask me all springers should have screw on bases. You should be able to choose your own bases like powder burners. 11mm dovetails are intended for low recoil .22RF. Barely adequate for springers.
