High Power, Breakbarrel, Spring Rifle

The "Do-It-All" Rifle
Hard Hitting, Flat Shooting!

The HW-80 has long been known as a "Do-It-All" rifle and is universally recognized for bringing adult airgunning to the forefront with it's power and stunning looks. It's a versatile gun with a power rating of medium (12-16 fpe) in the  .177 and .20 calibers, yet is rated as a magnum powered rifle (over 16 fpe) in .22 caliber.

From the ground up, the HW-80 was built to be an airgun that a shooter could use and cherish for a lifetime. The Weihrauch "R" Series trigger, universally recognized as one of the finest available on a sporting gun, has a crisp, delightful feel that is fully adjustable. The solid body tube has deep dovetail grooves machined into the sides for maximum accuracy and stability. The safety automatically engages each time the rifle is cocked and has a convenient thumb release as well as a red indicator showing that the rifle is ready to fire. The elegant hardwood stock has a long forearm that adds grace and increased functionality for those who prefer to grasp the rifle farther out.

As an example of the workmanship of the rifle, examine the end cap of the receiver. Notice how the cap has been machined from a solid block of steel and carefully designed so that it mates flush with the body tube when screwed onto the back of the rifle. If this much care goes into one component, imagine how much thought and care has gone into the rest of the rifle!

The HW-80 was one of the first airguns to break the mystical 1000 fps mark. Other manufacturers may claim that their products meet or exceed that mark, but a chronograph often shows otherwise! The HW-80 is conservatively rated at 950 fps in .177 caliber but to truly harness the power we recommend the .20 or .22 caliber. The larger caliber gives a shooter better energy, greater mass and frontal area than the .177 caliber. The large swept air volume of the R1 makes it particularly well suited to the heavier calibers. The rifle is available in .177, .20, .and 22 calibers.

Made by Weihrauch, the renowned German airgun company, the R1/HW80 is arguably the most written about airgun to date. This airgun excels at every task from plinking to hunting. Weighing 8.3 lbs and requiring only 34 lbs. cocking effort, a shooter can use this rifle for plinking all day long without tiring.

The Beeman R1 is available in .177, .20 and .22 caliber and Right and Left Handed configuration, so you are sure to find a caliber to match your needs. And shooters will find that all three available calibers offer more than enough power for their hunt or pest control purposes. The HW80 is simply the European version imported to the U.S. which features the same action but isn't quite as fancy in the stock and it has a shorter warranty period. It is available only in .177 and .22 Right Handed configuration.

The famous R series trigger is standard on the R1/HW80, providing all the quality and fine adjustability shooters have come to expect from Beeman airguns.

Our opinion? We found this rifle easy to shoot with very good accuracy right out of the box. The rifle, typical of many new airguns, felt a little rough for the first few tins of pellets but after the initial airgun break-in period of 1000-1500 shots, it settled down to become a very smooth shooter.

We gave this gun a very consistent rating of 4's and 5's. This air rifle will perform well, no matter what the task at hand. This gun is extremely versatile so if you only intend to have one airgun, consider the R1/HW80 to be one of your top choices. And don't forget the many after-market modifications available for the R1/HW80. Additional options such as a Theoben gas spring (our favorite), spring and trigger tunes make this an airgun with a long lifespan.
All in all, the R1 should provide a lifetime of fun for the lucky owner. After all, there is a reason why the R1/HW80 is the standard to which all other spring airguns are compared.
