    Weihrauch 77K - equivalent break barrel of the time?

    Hi chaps, just getting back into things and forgotten too much! I have owned a (MK II IIRC) 77k for many years - what was the nearest model in the range in terms of size etc but in a break barrel?

    HW80 I'd say.
    Far too many rifles to list now, all mainly British but the odd pesky foreigner has snuck in

    I would have to agree, the HW80 was the equivalent at the time. Since then lighter versions have been introduced such as the HW95 and HW99 to meet demand. Then there is the HW35 that was and still is around.

    No just long and longer.

    Took them years to make a proper 12inch karbine.

    Good job we didn't mention the HW35 with its 2 counties extra long barrel

    I would have thought the HW85 was the equivalent break barrel of the time. Smaller bore than the HW80

    Yep, I'd say HW80 in terms of size, weight, "premium" standing in the range and the 85 for more comparable internals.

    What the Diana/Original 35? Still not the best looking rifle

    That'll do for now whilst building up to the one we know you really want, Pete.
