Hi there!

I want to buy a new gun, and i need help! I cant decide between Weihrauch HW80 and HW95 Luxury. I need a gun which one powerfull and accurate. I want it for hunting, and long rage shooting.

Please help me with some reasons why HW80 and why HW95 Luxury (the 95 luxury is look well, this one is the likeable for me).

Thanks the answers!

Both are excellent hunters, don't let anyone tell you the opposite. I prefer HW95L because it's lighter.

The caliber selection should guide you here. HW95/R9 shines in .177 and .20 while HW80/R1 in .20 and .22

Plenty of aftermarket support for both.

It helps me a lot!

The .177 is can be good for hunting? Or just .20 and .22 ?

Regards!

Ditto what Ambush Hunter said. You can't go wrong with either one of those rifles. They are among the best spring rifle hunters available. And yes you can hunt very effectively with .177 caliber. However, I do prefer the .22 for the greater knockdown power it carries at range and the larger hole it creates.

I too prefer .22 for hunting but HW95 will be best in .20 or .177 if that's the rifle you are thinking of... the firing cycle of .20 will be a bit smoother though... And no, there is nothing wrong with .177 for hunting/pest control. Airgunning is all about accuracy/shot placement.

What caliber is your HW50?

You know what's funny Ambush, I use to feel the same way about preferring the .20 over .22 for the R9/HW95, but I purchased a .22 caliber R9 and I prefer it over the .20 cal.

The main reason is that the bone stock R9 in .20 will shoot 13.73g JSB's at 685 fps, but my bone stock R9 .22 shoots 14.66g FTS's at 705 fps! It's incredible how it's more efficient at energy transfer with the larger pill. Not to mention it's even smoother and more docile with the shot cycle.

Granted, my .20 R9 shoots 11.42g FTS for 745 fps after it's full break in, but I contacted Tom Gore at Vortek about sending my .22 cal R9 to him for the Sunnen hone and full Vortek tune/kit and he said that it will do around 750 fps with the 14.66g FTS with the tune! Incredible power out of a lightweight R9.

Yep, Vortek is the way to go...or Paul Watts. I just think that the weight difference sure makes R9 the winner in the hunting department, whether tuned or stock, .20 or. 22. Unless of course we are talking about a .22 Vorteked R1 running at 23FPE :cool:

Huh... i cant decide between the .177 and .22
im found hard to choose... i want hunt in 50-100m. Some one tell the .177 its enough and shine to the HW95L...
Can someone tell me whats is the function of the piston weight? It can increase the recoil or decrease?
