    Hw110

    I went to my local gun shop for some subsonic Eley RF.22 sub sonic, and came away with a HW110, .177as well as the ammo.
    Well , it just felt right from the moment i shouldered it !(it was my 60th Birthday), Last Monday

    The magazine ,is a bit fiddly to start with , but once you get used to, it its easy.

    You get two 10 shot magazines,, the famous HW Moderator, a rubber coated beech stock (which is a marmite thing).
    It would be nice to have sling swivels fitted as standard to finish it off.
    I chrono'd the thing after filling it with air , and the variation over 50 shots was 8.2 ft/p/second.

    It eventually dropped off the regulator after 110 shots , (its in the name). The accuracy was outstanding.
    The cylinder on the 110 , is fixed , so no slow air leaks (re HW100'S) Ive owned.

    I am extremely pleased with it so far, as its already bagged a couple of bunnies.
    Peace through superior fire power!

    Glad to hear you are enjoying it.

    Although I prefer the appearance of the HW100 sporter, I would also go for the HW110.

    For weight reduction, shot capacity and balance. These things are more important than aesthetics. I could live with the stock. It's certainly an improvement on the thumbhole HW100. As for the use of polymer, sure aluminium looks nicer, but scratches more easily.

    It is very "pointable" , and has the desired trajectory of a .177, and the shot count of a .22.no sweet spot , So its a Win win.

    Impressive new model from Weihrauch, good balance and weight. I agree the mags are a bit fiddly but given the very good price easy to overlook. Black stock feels good but it's a shame there's no single shot adapter, hopefully there will be in the future. Enjoy your birthday present, I'm sure it will serve you well!

    Yes I also totally agree with the above

    I'm now on my second HW110 and both have also been in .177 the first one I sold on in haste as I had another pcp and couldn't justify both so one had to go

    A club member bought it from me and I regretted selling it the moment I handed it over

    Fast forward a few weeks and I then sold the other pcp and floated about with cheaper pcp's but in the back of my mind I really wanted to go back to the HW110 so sold up again ready to fund my latest HW110.

    This time I won't be so hasty I also love the balance and weight with the bonus of a biggish shot count for such a compact rifle, I'm now getting used to the fiddly mag system which is really it's only bugbear.

    Really are a cracking rifle and it certainly ticks most boxes

    The magazines seem to be going in and out , with much greater ease , the more I use them .
    I drilled the stock and fitted sling studs, as the 'stock fixing socket cap' which can be replaced by a stud, definitely does not have enough
    thread in the receiving, section , to support the use of a sling. (In my opinion, as a mechanical engineer).
    There is a section of the stock 25mm (1 inch) 'towards the barrel' end , which is certainly thick enough to drill and insert
    sling mounts.

    The rifle continues to impress.

    Must admit I'm used to the magazine system now and don't give it a second thought.

    At first I found it a little awkward but it soon becomes second nature and as you mention they seem to slot in and out easier after use.

    Mine already had some nice silver studs fitted front and rear by the previous owner.

    Look pretty good contrasted with the black tactical stock etc I only really use the front stud for a bipod as I have no real need for a sling.

    The front stud is a replacement for the original fixing not sure who makes it and I've not taken it out to check its length etc but it seems plenty secure to me especialy for bipod use.

    I've never noticed it altering the POI either with or without the bipod on as there are rumours that replacement bolts with the QD stud on the HW100 & HW110 using a bipod can put strange pressures on the barrel clamp assembly which in turn could potentially alter POI.

    I've also found that Acupell FT pellets are really good through it and so far are my tightest groups.

    I have put a stud in the front bolt location , for bi-pod use only .

    I bought a UTG Bugbuster scope, which comes with QD Mounts , and bought some QD mounts for the Photon XT
    so now i can change from day scope to night scope in seconds , with very little or no change in zero, once initially
    set up. The picattiny rail , is extremely handy.

    I have a BSA r10 SE .22 FAC locked up in the gun cabinet almost redundant!

    I had a play with one of these and a Hatsan Gladius last night. Talk about chalk and cheese! I'm leaning towards to HW110 because it impressed me greatly. I think I'd have a new stock made for it though.
