High Power, Breakbarrel, Gas Ram Rifle

 

Gas Ram Technology
Powerful Hunting Rifle

The Beeman HW90 uses a "gas spring" for its powerplant. What is a "gas spring" you ask? Imagine an air-filled shock absorber in place of a conventional metal mainspring, and you have the insides of the HW90 in your mind.

 

The HW90 is cocked like any other barrel cocking airgun, but the single cocking stroke compresses a cylinder of air instead of a steel mainspring. When the trigger is pulled, the compressed air expands and drives the piston forward. Unlike a pneumatic or CO2 airgun, the sealed air is never expended. And unlike a steel mainspring, a "gas spring" cannot "take a set" or tire with age.

Due to the extremely short lock time (the time it takes a pellet to exit the barrel from when the trigger was pulled), this air rifle can have a pronounced jolt during firing. The short lock time, however, aids in field accuracy because there is less time for the shooter to "pull" off the target.

The beech stock features the famous long forearm for grace and functionality. The trigger is crisp and predictable as you would expect and is set at approximately 2 lbs. of pull, ideal for hunting purposes. The automatic safety is located at the front of the cast metal trigger guard and may be disengaged and then reset as needed.. All in all, a HW90 is a "must-have" air rifle for the connoisseur.

If we had to come up with one word to describe the HW90 that word would be "versatile". Why? Well, a quick glance will show that the HW90 offer you a wide range of power and velocity options. Whether you are involved in target shooting or hunting there is a proper fit for you.

As most airgunners know, there is always a lot of interest in velocity. So much so, that many airgunners send their airguns off for powertunes and after-market mods to increase the power. For the velocity minded shooters, look no farther than the HW90. In .177 the HW90 literally goes supersonic with lighter pellets. Check the grids for velocities in excess of 1080 fps. One has to choose heavier pellets just to keep the velocity down to more sedate 900+ fps.

No tunes are needed with an HW90. It's all here in one package....the smoothness of a gas ram and the incredible velocity right out of the box. The .22 is well suited for any small game hunting trip. Of all the guns we sell, the HW90 is without a doubt, one of our favorite airguns.

The HW90 offers a smooth gas spring with no twang and tremendous power. Few airguns on the market can touch the HW90 in any category. Wait until you check out the performance figures on this gun.

If you are a hunter, take a serious look at this rifle. The gas ram in the HW90 make it an ideal for hunting. You can cock this gun and leave it cocked without fear of damage. In addition, this airgun is one of the few available today with a resettable safety. The HW90 will allow you to reset your safety if you are unable to take your shot. This feature alone is a big plus to those who walk the woods.

Note: We hear comments all the time from HW90 owners asking why it only rates a rating of only 3 in plinking. Well, three of the main criteria for plinking are light weight, easy to cock and fun for the whole family. Well folks as you would expect from a magnum airgun of this power, it has quite a heavy stock to dampen the recoil. It is also too difficult for younger kids to cock and they will not find it to be as much fun for casual shooting as smaller, lighter guns. That does not mean the gun is not a good plinker or target shooting. But this gun was designed for hunting and pest control which it does very well. Don't confuse this gun with a family picnic gun. This gun packs a punch. and is a howitzer.
