The Weihrauch HW50S is a light powered, light recoil rifle of good quality and acceptable power. The rifle is available in .177 and .22 and both calibers will provide excellent performance. If you prefer higher velocities, consider the .177 caliber version. If higher knock-down power is needed, we would recommend the .22 version. Both calibers will provide you with power to target shoot and hunt backyard pests.
