    I just bought one from AOA.  $316.99 with free shipping I couldn't pass it up.  I am addicted.  Lol.

    Congrats! I know you are going to enjoy it. 

    I also know all about being addicted. I picked one up from AOA the first of the year. I keep telling myself that it is the last airgun that I’m getting. I’m just going to enjoy the ones I have….

    I have told myself no more airguns this year before this one.  I am already thinking about another Weihrauch.  And thanks.

    Such was my mantra after buying my Beeman AR2078 CO2 rifle in January.  Then I pulled the trigger on a Crosman 2300KT pistol from the Custom Shop last Friday… and the descent into mania continues.

    I’d like a stainless in a laminated stock.  You would think these manufacturers could do that for you.   Simple matter of picking parts as the gun is assembled .

    When I bought my HW77 stainless I asked the dealer to swap the synthetic stock for timber, no problems, happy to oblige.

    I have been looking at that gun for awhile. The numbers indicate that it might be on the same level as my FWB 124D.  The FWB 124D has about the same cocking effort as the HW30 , and the HW50 is a heavier cock weight. But velocity numbers are about the same. Anyone have shot both ?

    The HW50S cocking effort is definitely more than my Beeman R7/HW30s. I’ve never shot or even held FWB 124D, but what I like about the HW50S is the size and weight compared to my RWS 34p and LGV. All three are .177 cal, sub 12fpe guns.

    The HW50S is a gun that I could shoot and carry around  all day. I didn’t care for the twang of the HW50S shot cycle and decided not to wait to see if it improved after it was broken-in. I dropped a Vortek sub 12fpe kit in her last Saturday.

     Crutch did The twang disappear with the installation. Also how did the rifle improve? I’m looking at either a HW30S or a Walther Terrus, but the HW50S was on my radar also except for the cocking effort. I’m looking for something I can shoot for a couple of hours and not get worn down or pissed off with inaccuracy.

    You won't be pissed of by the accurasy of either of the weihrauch, and you can shoot as much you want without being tired, just ordered a hw50s .22 and a tbt drop in kit myself

    The twang is gone after the Vortek kit install. The cocking effort is about the same as with the stock spring. The accuracy, fit/finish and cocking cycle is very good. I rank the sound as medium loudness. My R7 is quieter.  I’m a pretty good sized guy at 215 lbs, but I’m 69 with mild rheumatoid arthritis. I’ve bench shot the HW50 several hours and had a great time.

    I have only installed two Vorket kits in RWS 34p and now in a HW50S. I’m no expert. I built a spring compressor when I did the RWS and was glad I had it for the HW50. It wasn’t as easy for me as it looked on YouTube. I had a hard time getting the trigger unit back in and with one of the little square blocks. But I did and didn’t break anything… The rifle cocks and shoots👍

    I’m pleased with my HW50S.

    The HW30 was sold that way as a special edition called the Jock Elliot edition threw Airguns of Arizona. I think they made 20 of them and they weren't cheap. 3 weeks ago a friend of mine called AOA and bought a stainless look hw30 and just asked about the black laminate stock and they built him one no extra cost. Took two guns apart and combined them. That's customer service.

    Well, I stopped along the way to buying an HW97 and/or a Walther LGU to have a dalliance with an HW57.  The scope I got for it blew up, then my neighbor didn't listen to my words of instruction and wisdom and took a shot with the tap not all the way down, and blew out the piston seal.  So, I'm in the process now of replacing the seal, doing a lube tune and deburr/cleanup, and then see if the accuracy returns!  It's the same basic powerplant as the HW50, but the loading tap causes some angst among guys…to me, it's a challenge, just as shooting a springer over a PCP is a challenge!  The -57 does have some twang to it, which I want to mitigate with the cleanup and lube tune, and I will polish the spring ends…I believe the HW50S must also be a very fun rifle, and does fill some gaps in your collection!

    A bit sidebar issue , but on an earlier post regarding buying a HW 30 , or the Beeman R7.  Most of what I heard was that they are same/same. But looking at the two major dealers in the USA , slight differences occur. The stocks , reported velocity's for the most part. Funny thing , is I have a few of the older Beeman catalogs from when Beeman sold both. The R7 had a fuller stock and  25  more FPS. Really curious , as we know who made both rifles , still do , and what the heck ? The catalog is the 1997 . 25th anniversary version.  But what now , because the claims of dealers web sites are the same as back then. Pellet type  and weight  , but what really seems to be the deal. The Beeman stock seems more glossy ,  and the Weihrauch  30 more a subdued finish .  And that 25 FPS deal ?

    Brad,

    Has she arrived yet? Post some pictures and let us know what you think about her when you get a chance…. Waiting on a Big Brown Truck is hard.
