    I will tell you Weihrauch barrels don't take a backseat to any barrels in my opinion.  This is my 2nd Weihrauch.  They are so easy to shoot.  People talk so much about Air Arms as the cream of the crop springers.  Well my Air Arm TX200 MKIII .22 didn't beat the HW97K today.  Here was the great group the HW97K shot today.

    Nicely done!  People who don't shoot can't understand how satisfying that is  🙂

    Those are some very good groups. Really good shooting! 

    brad, what kind of optics do you have on your 97K?

    And remember these were shot outdoors in a little wind.

    Very nice shooting.  No question, my .177 hw97k is my most accurate springer.  Heck, it can easily hold its own against my PCPs inside of 25 yards.

    Those are fantastic groups Brad. I don’t have one yet, but my plot to get one is thickening. 

    I’m hoping for good weather Saturday, maybe I can shoot some groups with my springers.

    Good shooting! Looks like the 97K is breaking in nicely.

    Very nice groups for any gun springer or otherwise. That's the sign of a accurate gun and a skilled shooter

    You should change your backstop. That is going to screw up your radio bro!  :)

    Hey Brad, I too am working on a hw 97 though mine is not new. I bought it a few weeks ago and I'm going to shoot it in field target. My chronograph took a crap so no readings speed wise till I replace it- after Christmas. I was told the gun shoots around 830 with 7.9 Crosmans. Have you tried different size (ie: 4.51/4.52) pellets in your gun yet? Was just wondering cause last night I was breaking the gun in after cleaning the barrel and the 4.52 size pellets are tight going in. I just bought a ton of pellets to test my guns with but since none of my other weihrauch .177 seem to like 4.51  size I didn't even buy them. I had a couple tins left from testing my HW30 but was just wondering if you have found that to be the case with yours?

    I have only shot mine once.  So I don't know a lot on ammo.. The Kaiser 8.64 gr Field Target Trophy also the same as H&N shoot very well in my Weihrauch HW77K.  I shot one good group of 4 with them in HW97K.  I think they are 4.50mm.  The JSB 10.34gr seem to shoot very well.

    Brad, was wondering if you have had a chance to get anymore shooting in with your 97?

    No not yet.  I can tell you Airguns of Arizona told me they chronographed 5 straight shots shooting Kaiser 8.64gr pellets at an avg speed of around 885fps.  That was on my HW77K.  I would say the HW97K ought to be about same.
