Weihrauch HW95K

Bruce Potts recommends that you should bank on quality when buying a break barrel rifle, and here he tests one of the best – the Weihrauch HW95K

Longevity, desirability and quality are things that most people look for in a new purchase of any item these days, all too often cheap copies can seem good value but rarely are. With an airgun it is important to pay for a certain level of quality which is especially true with a break barrel spring gun. The spring/piston system and barrel cocking design feature of any break barrel air rifle need to be robust and well designed if the rifle is to deliver any degree of accuracy and consistency.

Weihrauch is one make that stands firmly on the side of sturdy yet refined design, and you always know what you are getting with this maker; quality at a fair price.

The older HW35 and HW80 designs are big chunky rifles which I like but there is certainly a need for a slimmer and lighter weight version, yet keeping the same design features and power levels. The HW95 and now the 95K (K for carbine) gives a hunter a full 12ft.lbs rifle in a trimmer package.


In keeping with the hunter pedigree the stock reflects a sporter type profile with nice rounded edges and comfortable shape. The rounded off forend has no chequering but cups in the hand nicely, whereas the pistol grip is chequered and raked to give a comfortable length of pull of 14.25 inches. There are no sling swivels which is a shame but a solid rubber recoil pad with black spacer is so much better than some of those plastic jobs. In the shoulder the raised cheek piece is present to both sides of the butt section of the stock making the HW95 virtually ambidextrous and is high enough and thus angled so that scopes of medium height can be viewed correctly.

The overall finish is matt ‘walnut’ stained lacquer which is certainly practical and makes the best of the underlying beech stock. Tough and useable without the risk of worrying about scratching a lovely piece of walnut, so you can crawl through the undergrowth after rabbits and keep your mind on the job at hand.

Barrelled action

Sensibly the HW95 is offered as a carbine version which is much better suited to hunting, and allows a moderator to be fitted without undue increase to the overall length of the hunting outfit. The HW95 has a 12 inch barrel with a slender girth which is threaded at the muzzle with a ½ inch UNF pitch which suits most moderator types, although it must be said that the supplied Weihrauch version is one of the best on the market. Measuring 7.75inches long with a diameter of an inch the simplistic internal design gives maximum noise reduction for the lightest 4.5ozs! There is also the advantage that the mod doubles as a helpful cocking aid; the shorter the barrel, the heavier the cocking effort, so the extra leverage given by the moderator is welcome.
A muzzle brake option is also available that shortens the length by about 3.25 inches but the moderator has to be the better bet for hunting.

The crux of any break barrel design is keeping the barrel to chamber alignment for consistent power transfer and accuracy. The HW95 has a good solid tension adjustment jaws with sliding shims to keep the barrel secure with the lock up being managed by a strong hinged latch system.

The receiver is a stout yet slimmed down version of the HW80 design. The cocking stroke is smooth and rattle free, with this best being conducted with a tap on the barrel to open up the action and then one smooth stroke that cocks the piston and sets the trigger.

The last point of the cocking stroke sets the trigger, and the safety catch ‘button’ automatically protrudes from the rear left side of the chamber. I like this as you have to make a conscious effort to disengage the safety before a shot can be fired. You can also decock the rifle (if you were not to shoot a round), by re-cocking the barrel and holding it firmly while pulling the trigger, then letting the barrel return under controlled spring pressure (never letting go of the barrel).

The trigger pull is two stage and gives a good degree of feel. The first stage allows an initial on target alignment before the final stage releases the piston. The factory set pull is a tad heavier than expected but the Rekord trigger unit is synonymous with a good degree of adjustment, so you can set the trigger release up as you like it.

Overall finish is typically Weihrauch, which means it’s good; blueing is both deep and even textured, being perfect for a hunting arm. There are no open sights, but the receiver is well grooved for scope mounting with dual 6.5 inch length dovetails.

I fitted a really rather good BSA Sweet 17 scope that I had been reviewing on an .17HMR rifle, but it suited the proportions of the Weihrauch very well. This cost effective scope actually proved very successful, with good quality optics and the benefit of an external elevation trajectory adjustment turret - very handy on a hunting arm.

Field Test

Performance table
Note: All readings are averages of five shots with each pellet brand. Pellet weights are in grains, Velocity is measured in feet per second (fps), Energy is measured in foot pounds (ft/lbs) and Accuracy results are measured in inches (for a five shot group fired at 30 yards)

Pellet Weight Velocity (fps) Energy (ft/lbs) Accuracy
RWS Superpoints 14.40 586 10.98 1.0
H&N Field Target Trophy 15.56 571 11.27 0.65
Lazapell 14.50 585 11.02 0.75
Crosman Premiers 14.26 598 11.33 0.55
Bisley Superfields 15.0 560 10.45 0.95
H&N Baracuda 20.54 460 9.65 1.25
Bisley Magnum 21.40 449 9.58 0.5
RWS Hobby 12.10 647 11.25 0.75
Air Arms Field 16.25 571 11.77 0.5

As with all break barrel piston springed air rifles they have their preferences and dislikes and being a light slim sporter rifle you have to manage the movement of the rifle on firing to maximise the accuracy potential from the HW95K.

The ultra smooth cocking cycle and unbelievably quiet moderator makes this Weihrauch feel and sound underpowered, but as can be seen from the performance table, the trim HW95 is a mighty performer, being able to shoot a variety of pellet designs and weights. All the pellets tested were within the legal limit, so no nasty surprises, and as expected the highest velocity went to the light Hobby pellets with enough accuracy too. However by testing all these pellets you can make a more refined choice of the best pellet for you. I prefer accuracy over sheer power, although as a hunting arm muzzle energy is certainly part of the equation.

Premiers offered a blend of five shot 0.55 inch groups at 30 yards with a good 598fps velocity and 11.33 ft/lbs energy. The Air Arms Fields shot slightly slower but with more energy, due to being heavier pellets, and the accuracy was just that bit better. Best consistency shot to shot went to the Bisley Magnums with only 8fps variation over five shots, which is superb for a springer, but power and velocity were too low for realistic rabbit ranges (these pellets are best used in pre-charged pneumatic rifles).


I like the simplicity of the break barrel design, no need to worry about filling up with air or following a power curve on an unregulated pre-charged pneumatic. The springer offers hassle free shooting if you are prepared to put in the effort to eke every last bit of accuracy of the system. Designed for hunter use, the 95K will cope with any shooting situation. Accuracy is more than good enough for most people and the power levels despite its slender size are right up there with its bigger brothers. The moderator is a definite bonus and a worthy addition whether you hunt or not, and the price is realistic and offers good value in real terms, as Weihrauchs seemingly last forever and shoot well straight from the box.

  • Hi Danny,

    First off, did you weigh the pellets that you were using or did you take an average weight given by another source? The reason I ask is that a deviation of a fraction of a grain can make a big difference to the final muzzle energy. You didn't mention calibre, but the larger the pellet, the more the weight can vary (in actuality rather than as a percentage).

    Secondly, what chrono did you use, and have you checked the rifle on another chrono - preferably a calibrated one at a gun shop or club. If you do check the readings again, weigh ten pellets, take ten shots over the chrono and use the average weight and average velocity to make your calculation.

    You can also get in touch with Hull Cartridge (01482 342756), the Weihrauch importer, and give them the serial number of the rifle, and they may be able to help you. They test all their rifles for muzzle energy before sale.

    Finally, if the rifle is still nudging the legal limit, get it de-tuned to around 11ft/lbs by a competent airgun specialist.

    Please let us know how you get on.

  • Im lucky to live in New Zealand were we have no power limits on are air rifles, and at 17ft/lbs in .177 form its a great small game rifle and the build quality is well above that of any rimfire rifles I have ever owned or seen! Its my number one rabbit rifle! 10/10!

  • I am trying to locate a manual for weihrauch hw95. I believe I can get a
    free manual from the manufacturer but I was hoping to be able to get
    one in this country can anyone point me in the right direction

    Comment by: robert haycox     Posted on: 03 Sep 2009 at 06:53 PM

  • Try the UK importer, Hull Cartridge, on tel. 01482 342756

    Comment by: Pat Farey     Posted on: 04 Sep 2009 at 06:16 PM

  • I`m glad I found this review as I`ve literally just purchased an HW95k and having had an HW80 and an HW90 I thought initially the 95 felt well underpowered. Obviously the sound suppressor and smooth action are decieving as well as my pellet choice (which won`t be doing the rifle any favours).
    I`m now looking forward to finding out which diet of pellet suits although I think I`ll buy some RWS Hobby to start as I like them and rate them.

    Comment by: Big Jock Knew     Posted on: 05 Nov 2009 at 08:46 PM

  • I just bought this HW95K a few weeks ago from reputable gun shop. Had it chrono tested yesterday for first time at the local gun club. I was astonished & dismayed to find it was 13.5 ft/lbs using AA Field pellets. Needless to say I took it back to the shop today and asked them to get it de-tuned to make it legal.
    If anyone else has not had their gun tested I recommend doing so and not take it for granted that it is under 12 ft/lbs because teh gun shop says so.
    (I am surprised it got through to the point of sale without anyone checking it!)

    Comment by: John Darbyshire     Posted on: 05 Nov 2009 at 10:35 PM

  • RWS Hobby pellets are OK, but most Weihrauchs will work best with H&N Field & Target Trophy pellets, Crosman Premiers or Accupells. Weihrauchs own medium weight brands work well too.

    Comment by: Pat Farey     Posted on: 06 Nov 2009 at 02:39 AM

  • Unfortunately this can occasionally happen with springers, but should be less of a problem with PCPs. As you rightly point out, when buying a new (or second-hand) rifle from a gunshop, you should ask the seller to check the power level in your presence.

    It's also a good idea to chronograph your rifle regularly - and especially when changing pellet brands - to make sure that it stays comfortably within the legal limit (around 11.5ft/lbs average).

    Comment by: Pat Farey     Posted on: 06 Nov 2009 at 04:49 PM

  • Got the gun back from repair. I am informed it is now running at approximately 11.3 ft/lbs. This ought to give me enough safety margin yet remain powerful enough to deal with rabbits with a head shot at 30 yards. Time will tell.

    Comment by: John Darbyshire     Posted on: 09 Nov 2009 at 05:39 PM

  • That's a sensible power output and more than capable for what you need. Keep track of the muzzle energy by chronoing it regularly and let us know how yet get on.

    Comment by: Pat Farey     Posted on: 10 Nov 2009 at 12:20 AM

  • I've been trying to make my trigger work the way I wanted for a while now,thanks to advice on a website it took 2minute's to emulate what I could derive from their info.
    Strict advice to anyone who has this magnificent rifle,DONT SELL UP!!
    Just because of the trigger making your rifle jerkey and unpredictable,get it set up by your gunsmith or try and do it yourself,much more satisfying.
    This was my first springer/air rifle and it will go in my coffin with me!!
    It does single holes at 30yrds and surpasses any pcp as it has a soul of its own!!
    I'm contemplating a .22 and I have a sneeking feeling,there will be another one of these.Dont waste your money on something cheaper,ordinarily I like a bargain but it's money well spent on these Quality air rifle's.

    Comment by: steven price     Posted on: 11 Nov 2010 at 05:15 PM

  • Hi guys,

    I'm hoping to buy one of these in .22 soon, but I would just like to know one or two things first. If I buy the version with a muzzle brake, is that removable? For instance if i want to take it hunting at some point in the future, would i be able to remove it and fit a silencer?
    Seconly, this refle seems very similar to the HW 99s that my friend has. Why the heftier price tag for this rifle, and how do they compare to each other acuracy wise?

    Cheers for your help,

  • I recently bought the new 310 barrel version in 177 which is absolutely superb. The cocking stroke is a smooth as silk.I`m not sure the moderator makes much difference to the noise, though that can be said about any springer.It does of course make the cocking that much easier so its welcome in that regard. The stock design and checkering makes it look as good as it shoots. It did pull to the left when I shot it today but that's down to my hopeless scope zeroing that the gun itself. I used RWS superdomes.Bisley superfield and H&N field target trophy. I `d recommend this gun over any in the Weihrauch range and that includes the underlevers.

    Comment by: Simon     Posted on: 05 Nov 2011 at 05:09 PM

  • A review of the HW95K 310 is featured in the next issue of GunMart magazine (December 2011)

    Comment by: pat farey     Posted on: 06 Nov 2011 at 11:40 AM

  • Thanks for that Pat.I hope someone will do a review for the YouTube channel.The rifle really is a joy to shoot and to look at.

    Comment by: Simon     Posted on: 06 Nov 2011 at 07:01 PM

  • Recently bought a 95KS as I was getting bored with the accuracy of my Daystate PCP and wished to try a springer. However the accurancy of this rifle, straight out of the box, was incredible. I'm getting half inch groups at 25m (rested) using Topshot .177 pellets. Other members of my shooting club have tried it and all say it's the best springer they have ever tried.

    Comment by: notgnilrad     Posted on: 26 Nov 2011 at 02:05 PM

  • Great review and comments, I've already owned a mk1 95k and loved, but am now buying another, as I believe they are the best break barrel on the market. I've nearly always bought .22, but my last pcp was .177 and did a great job of dispatching game. As the rifles is gonna mostly be for hunting, would you recommend the .177 hw95k for hunting or stick with .22 for spring powered break barrels ???

    Comment by: Bails UK     Posted on: 26 Feb 2012 at 09:48 AM

  • I have a hw95k in .177 cal . Had it tuned by tony wall of sandwell field and sport orsome rifle. Super smooth to cock and very very quite .Takes rabbits down at 45 yards no problems. Instant kills.This is one rifle i will never sell.

    Comment by: paul osullivan     Posted on: 05 Nov 2012 at 08:43 PM

  • I'm wanting a 177 for bunnies for around £150/£200. Breakbarrel.
    I'm using a .22 for genral purpose at the moment.
    What can you recomend for a second hand purchase?

    Comment by: terry taylor     Posted on: 16 Dec 2012 at 08:51 PM

  • Hi Terry,

    If you can find a Weihrauch of any type for the money you have I'd say get it straight away. Any of the company's models will be up for the job and will despatch rabbits at sensible hunting ranges. The 95 is a lovely rifle, have a look in the Gun Mart classified adverts, you never know your luck!

    Comment by: TrollHunter     Posted on: 16 Dec 2012 at 10:43 PM

  • Just bought new HW95k put 800 pellets through it nice gun. Then went to fire the gun the trigger released I heard the sear let go but nothing happened. The piston jamed had a job to decock the gun tried to cock and fire the gun again,same thing happened. Also the cocking leaver was rubbing the forend of the stock . Very dissatisfied with the gun not up to Weihrauch standards. Back at the dealer I bought it from awaiting to see the outcome. Has anybody else had problems?

    Comment by: Bob     Posted on: 27 Jun 2013 at 06:00 PM

  • This sounds very unusual for a HW95K - or any Weihrauch - please keep us informed of what happens.

    Comment by: Pat Farey     Posted on: 02 Jul 2013 at 01:12 AM

  • I guess any manufacturer can produce something faulty now and then but I'm sure that Hull Cartridge, who import and distribute Weihrauch in the UK, will get it sorted for you soon.

    As Pat said, let us know what happens.

    Comment by: Troll Hunter     Posted on: 02 Jul 2013 at 08:03 AM

  • Ref.HW95k outcome of faulty gun. My dealer sent the gun back to Hull Cartridges for repair.It was away for two weeks my dealer had not heared a thing as to what was happening. I sent email to them about my gun and could they update me as to what was happening . I have never had a reply to my email which I thought was very unprofessional for a company like Hull Cartridges. I went back to my gun shop they got in touch with Hull he was told they did not have my gun. My gun shop got in touch with the courier company they said it had been delivered and someone at Hull had signed for it. So back he went to Hull and told them they must have my 95K. They went and looked down the warehouse only to find it to one side and forgot about. They said it would be looked at. After four days my gun shop rang to say my gun was there to pick up.I have my 95k back the barrel does not rub any more looks OK. Shoots OK but don't know what they done to stop it jamming up. I will just have to keep my fingers crossed. I expected more from Hull on this though. As my gun was only two months old I though a replacement would have been better and would have put my mind at rest and also kept up their reputation .

  • Hi, Looking to buy a WEIHRAUCH HW 95, how much would I be expected to pay for a second hand one in excellent condition? How much would a new one cost.

    Comment by: Chun Leek     Posted on: 14 May 2014 at 07:30 PM

  • HW95s are around £300 new, so expect a second hand one to be around £220- £250, depending on condition.

    Comment by: Troll Hunter     Posted on: 14 May 2014 at 07:43 PM

  • Hi TH and thank you. Just been chatting to a friend who seems to think the HW 97 is a better rifle, is it?

    Comment by: Chun Leek     Posted on: 14 May 2014 at 08:23 PM

  • Hi Chun, that's a hard one! They are both very accurate due to the company's excellent barrels, are well made and consistent. They've both got the same superb Rekord trigger, still one of the best around. I've shot both of them over the years and enjoyed them both.

    Many years ago Weihrauchs, such as HW80s and then HW77s, were used to win most Field Target competition (before pre-charged rifles took over) so they've certainly proved themselves. The HW97 is an improved HW77 and incorporates many of the tweaks that custom air rifle tuners did to customer's rifles.

    The main difference between the 95 and 97 is the weight due to the 97's underlever but personally I don't mind a slightly heavier rifle, as they seem to be more stable; you however might like a lighter rifle.

    I think your best bet is to take a trip to your local gunshop and see which one you prefer. Choosing an air rifle can often be rather difficult, as there's so much quality gear out there. We've never had it so good!

    Comment by: Troll Hunter     Posted on: 14 May 2014 at 09:35 PM

  • Hi TH, thanks again for your time and info, looks like I may be getting a WEIHRAUCH KT 97 Blackline 22 (Gift from the lady). Have to be honest it's a lot heavier than I expected, good excuse to get back in the gym I guess grin

    Comment by: Hi TH, thanks again for your time and info, looks     Posted on: 28 May 2014 at 09:15 PM

  • My 95k I have to admit is amazing and any misses are down to operative error AA Diablo seem to be the best pellets for game but anybody got other ideas?

    Comment by: Pothunter     Posted on: 26 Jun 2014 at 11:58 PM

  • Air Arms usually work very well in most rifles but it might also be worth trying sone H&N Field Trophy, RWS Superdomes and Crosman Premier or Accupells.

    If Air Arms shoot well, I'd probably just stick with them though.

    Comment by: Troll Hunter     Posted on: 28 Jun 2014 at 08:35 AM

  • I recently purchased a HW95K in .22 as I had just taken on some land for pest control and general rabbit hunting and had not long previously got rid of all my .22's except one as they were all too loud for hunting and/or too inaccurate or cumbersome. It left me with a handfull of GREAT PCP's in single shot and magazine fed flavors mainly Air Arms and BSA but all were .177 which can often be problematic when after certain pests and game. My only .22 I kept was a Gamo which is a great Rat hunting rifle but despite having a fully shrouded barrel and muzzle break it was still way too loud for field use. I also had over 5000 pellets in .22 in 1/2 and 3/4 tins and boxes which I didn't want to waste shooting cans with my loud Gamo or give away to clear the space in my ammo safe.

    I cant praise my Weihrauch HW95K enough. Its as quiet as most of my PCP's, powerful as you like and a pleasure to shoot as its so well balanced and a really nice weight (especially if your carrying all day/night).
    Cocking and loading is a pleasure which is highly unusual on a full power Break Barrel and the barrel breaks and returns with minimal effort thanks to the great Weihrauch Moderator acting as the perfect cocking aid.
    The breach is beautifully designed and is so easy to slide a pellet into even in the dark. It barely re-coils and its easily possible to keep your eye just about focused through the scope at 6 or 8 X due to so little rise and re-coil. The auto safety is a great feature and the slide is within easy reach of your trigger hand's thumb to disengage. The trigger mech is nice and smooth but as the review stated, you do have to set this up to how you like it as it requires loads of force on the 2nd stage out of the box.
    I have found that a good pellet mix is with a selection of Bisley Pest Control Pellets or RWS Super Hollowpoints for hitting targets hard when your not after any meat in good condition like Rats when you just need to have pure knock down power that will give you a humane 1 shot kill and then any of the 3 greats that are Air Arms Field/JSB Exact, H&N FTT's and Crossman Premier all for feathered or tough skinned/muscle targets and precision shooting slightly further out then ideal and need a headshot. Finally for target practice or for long distance head shots then Webley/Crossman PowaPell's are stunning! They fly like .177's and hit darn hard especially as .22's and will put any pest or small game down at a fair range with extreme accuracy (remember these tend to have a VERY different aim point on your scope and you dont want to wing something as they will go through and through.
    Finally the looks of the gun are lovely, nice lines, quality all over and a great slim shape with a short fat barrel with a big ol' mod on the end, beautiful design!
    Overall I love my Weihrauch HW95K Suppressed rifle, its everything I want in a .22 hunting rifle and I wont be getting rid of this one any time soon!

  • Glade you are pleased with your 95k. I thought I would be but it didn't turn out that way as you can see from my ordeal. My main gripe was with Hull Cartridges bad response to a fault gun,Which was new straight out of the box. My 95k is still not up to much even though it was repaired by Hull Cartridges.I have an old HW97 ten years old heavy I know but out performs my 95k in every department .
    Keep shooting well Vimes79 All the best Bob

    Comment by: Bob     Posted on: 08 Sep 2014 at 10:11 PM

  • I can certainly understand your frustration as there is nothing worse then a faulty brand new gun.
    I spent £700 on a new 2014 model Walnut BSA R10 mk2 .177 earlier in the year plus another £250 on a scope and ~£200 in addons (BiPod, LEDRay Tracer, extra 10 shot mag and a singe shot mag adapter) and got home and started trying to zero it up and couldn't as the barrel shroud was just slightly out of line which was pushing the BSA mod out of line (which is choked to .177 so MUST have a perfect fitting) and was clipping and flinging my pellets all over the place. I was so pissed off!!
    Luckily it came from an awesome small family run RFD who told me that instead of messing around with returns to BSA, that they would just book the gun back in as a return and give me a replacement outright and then they could send the faulty one back and say it was spotted during a customer test fire. This way I had a replacement working gun within 24 hours of realizing there was a fault, they even swapped the stocks around for me as the first gun had a nicer grain pattern in the solid walnut then the replacement which was pretty plain.

    IMO all new guns that are confirmed as faulty should be replaced straight away and the faulty one returned and stripped and every part double checked before any repair or use of any of its parts in another firearm.
    It would be so much easier then messing about with return to mfr then waiting for repairs which just puts customers off using that RFD and Gun Maker again...

    Sorry you had such a bad experience. This is my first Weihrauch I have owned in 20 years of owning and shooting airguns (I have always been a bit of a BSA, Webley and Air Arms (all the UK designed guns) fan, but this piece of German engineering is amazing! I have honestly never shot another .22 springer or gas ram like it where you can stack shots at 25-30 yrds out (a feat I have only ever managed with (mostly .177) PCP's and just a singe highly modified .177 springer) and that is so quiet.

  • Hi, I just bought Weihrauch Hw95k, shot about 1200 pellets and it sounds twany. Can anyone tell is that normal.

    Comment by: Dai     Posted on: 16 Sep 2014 at 11:09 PM

  • Hi
    I have put around 1000 pellets through mine now and it has no twangy sound at all...
    It just makes a very muffled dull thud then a smack as the pellet hits its target hard. The sound of the impact is much greater then the sound of the gun firing.

    Are you using the standard Weihrauch moderator or a 3rd party model?

    Weihrauch did make some changes to the material some of the internals are made from to make them last longer and not require grease or oil to the same extent as before to lengthen time between services. I think this happened in late 2013 or early 2014, check your serial number/mfr date and see when it was made as it may be one of the older type design that your RFD had left in stock to clear which may be slightly different sounding to mine which I know rolled off the production line in April 2014 and has those newer parts.

    With a mod attached your HW95k should be very quiet, just slightly louder than most PCP's with standard mods and MUCH quieter then any other suppressed springer I have ever heard (except other Weihrauchs).

    Comment by: Vimes79     Posted on: 17 Sep 2014 at 12:53 AM

  • Hi Dai,

    Your rifle shouldn't be too twangy but maybe if you let someone else shoot it, you would realise that a lot of the noise is localised, when your head is against the stock.

    I thought my first HW35 was noisy, until my brother was shooting it a few yards away, I didn't worry about it after that.

    Or, your rifle really is twangy and a little moly grease on the mainspring would help.

  • Hi Toll Hunter

    Thank you for your comment. But it really is twangy, is it very hard to grease the mainspring.

    Thank you Troll Hunter.

  • I've just ordered a new HW 95 K in .22, probably get it next week if Hull Cartridge are as efficient as S M K with delivery. This will be my third. I remember the first one being very quiet, very accurate and powerful. It had the plain barrel with open sights. I parted with it because I am an idiot. A few years ago I bought my second, it had a barrel weight and was a disappointment .
    Noisy, inaccurate and with as much recoil and roughness as an HW 99s! I remember looking at the spring and finding one end roughly chopped and unfinished. I got rid of it as soon as I could. I have high hopes for this next one and am keeping my fingers crossed that it wasn't made on a friday afternoon!
