I have just obtained an HW77 and just wondered how you can tell the age?
The serial number is 1042160. Does this correspond to anything ?
Does anyone know?

That is great....I'll do that now.
About cutting in half and counting the rings - would that be the barrel or the stock......please be more specific as I wouldn't want to get it wrong and end up doing both.....I might ruin a good saw !!!!!!
Number 10444** is known to be between 13-14 years old,Originally Posted by Lightyear
so yours is pretty close
I'd be interested to know whether they (Weihrauch) can tell you whether it has 25 or 26mm internals - you need to know this if you want to order venom kits, Venom told me they can't tell from the number..
I have sent mails to both Weihrauch and Hull Cartridge and will see what they both come up with ???
With regard to the Venom kits I think I read it on here somewhere that if the serial number is pre 13001036 then the internals are 25mm if they are post this then they are 26mm. Something to do with the Americam market apparently !!!
Might be a good idea to do a search on here and check with those that know a lot more than me !!!!

I got a mail back from Weihrauch and they said that the rifle was produced in 1987 and also a mail back from Hull Cartridge saying that they sold it on
20th Jaunary 1988.
Can't be more specific than that - and what great service from these two companies !!!
