    “scrane”The HW100 is a terrific gun! … in .177. In .22 it’s a real crap shoot. If you can see your way clear to .177 I think you’ll be very pleased. If you really need .22 the BSA R10 Mk2 has a pretty good reputation. For a no risk solution get a RAW HM1000. Have fun.

    
Thanks for the suggestions but it’s known to be windy here and I’m not comfortable shooting birds past 40m with a 4,5.
    I’ve seen at the R10 but I don’t like the looks and buying a RAW in Europe… Just the shipping will put it out of my price range.

    Europe. Your in luck. Head over to Krale sports NL. HW100 and FX prices are a lot better than in the USA. Krale has 1st rate customer service. Pretty sure if you call they will test accuracy before shipping for a small amount. Google Krale sports/airguns.

    I have a HW-100 fsb .22 cal. & love it! Accurate, well designed, magazines are awesome, never any mech. Issues ( no air leaks, o-rings last, very robust, holds zero! ) for the money u can’t beat them! THEY R NOT TARGET GUNS THOUGH!, in my opinion, thats why i have a RAW TM-1000

I’ve heard nothing but good about the RAW, but it’s 2,5 times more expensive as the HW100. That’s just not an option and I really don’t like the looks. 

    For now I’m leaning towards the Matador…

    If you don’t mind bullpup, anything from the former soviets with a CZ barrel seems to shoot well. In fact, the Kalbregun Cricket Carbine has more traditional styling and is reputed to be very accurate. How about the Air Arms Ultimate Sporter?

    Hi Everyone,

    I have a new interest in purchasing a .22 caliber PCP air rifle. My criteria for the options on the rifle is as follows is order of priority:
    Accuracy,
    Regulator,
    Moderator,
    High Power,
    Good and easy to load multi-shot magazine,
    Durability,
    Quick and easy access to parts, and
    Cost between $1,000 to $1,400.00

    I have narrowed it down to the FX Streamline .22 and the Weihrauch HW100 Carbine with Moderator .22 Caliber. I love the simplicity of the magazine on the Weihrauch HW100. It is durable and extremely easy to load. It’s made of a single piece of metal……no moving parts at all, plus it carries 14 pellets.

    On the other hand, I was told by a Sales rep at Airgunsofarizona that the FX Streamline is a superior rifle all around, especially when it comes to accuracy. However, I am not keen on the magazine at all. How do I balance everything to get the best possible rifle????

    All comments/advice is welcomed.

    The Cricket Carbine meets all this options., its  equal or more accurate than HW100, great regulator and autonomy,  very high power,  the magazine is like the HW100 14 shots in .22 but not so easy too load, much less weight. 8.5 vs 6.8 lb.

    Which model  of HW100 .177 is best for backyard target shooting at 50 yards? Quiet and accurate are most wanted.

    Hi Luke,

    Thank you for your response. I will be getting the HW100 .22 caliber rifle. I am not interested in the .177 at all. So I am trying to find out which one of the .22 rifles is the most all around one based on my criteria.

.177s are good at low power, i would steer away from the unecessary long barrel and the fsb the later shroud does not work really. get one with the proper moderator. the hw moderator is very efficient still a gold standard.
    the K carbine version will have low shotcount. i had both a KS and KT, full length will give you few more shots. you have to try the thumbhole stock if it is for you, plus these days you can have adjustable comb raiser and other material choice. you will be fine. well the .22 is still a hit or miss

    Hi,

    Thank you for your advise on The cricket carbine .22 rifle. I am not familiar with this rifle. What about the Weihrauch HW100 Carbine .22, how accurate is it compared to the FX Streamline .22 and the K carbine .22 rifles? Can you post a link so I can check it out? Thanks again for your advice.

    you can index the hw100barrel only one screw holds it, on the cricket you cant, because the barrel has the transferport.. the hw100 has a valve block for it. detached from the barrel so easy to dial in if it shoots left or right.

    Have you considered a 20 cal. They have the LW barrel and have had great reports on accuracy and shoot the JSB 13.73 at 930 fps with a full 3 mag. 42 shots.
    Not bad from a 175cc air cylinder. A mate of mine has one and its he’s go to gun.

    I went ahead and ordered the Weihrauch HW100 Carbine .22 rifle. I hope it works out for me. I have a friend that own 3 of those and he swears by them after testing the FX Streamline and the New Weihrauch HW110 ST .22 rifle. He strongly advised me to go with the HW100, which of course has been proven because its been around a long time. He has one that he uses eery day in his line of work from which he discharges hundreds of pellets daily. What else can I say!

The HW100 its a very good rifle,  a hunting partner has one and the only downside is the weight. 
    I suggest you to buy a lightweight air tube cylinder. They are not very expensive and turn your HW100 into a perfect rifle.

    Hi Jorgemac,

    Thank you very much for your advice. i wasn’t aware that I could reduce the weight by replacing the air tube cylinder. I will investigate this as an option.

    About your hunting partner……I assume he is happy with the accuracy of his HW100. Any idea which pellets he is using?
