Thanks everyone.

One of my fears of owning too many airguns is If they won't get used. Just got rid of a bunch, well some are being held for a bit. Some pumpers will go into this summers yard sale, a few others (nitro piston) need a home. Nothing vintage or rare. That's partially why I want a HW30, as it won't over lap with my keepers.

Yes they are excellent rifles and IMO a cut above Diana. I currently own one Diana rifle and have owned more in the past. I currently own an example of almost every HW spring gun offered, in some cases more then one. They are EXCELLENT rifles full stop.

I do think Air Arms makes a tier above HW at least as far as fit and finish go but mechanically IMO the HW97 is a better or at the very least equal to the TX200.

Point is Weihrauch makes a very good product.

Hopefully all of you are getting a cut from Weihrauch, as the sales you promote are probably more than their own advertising  ;D

Another fan of HWs, here. In fact, I have a rep around here as an enabler. Rather than rehash all the reasons why I like HWs and why HWs are the core of our springer collection, my advice is to just try one and decided for yourself. Just don't be surprised when you add more. Hard to stop at one.

I have two Dianas, and two HWs. All 4 send a pellet down range, and do so accurately. When you look at the detail of the HWs; the screws used, the little details, they're just that cut above the Dianas.

Funny thing, I am on the other side. I have had a desire to try a Diana to see how they compare.
 "Grass is always Greener" thing I guess.
But yes, I believe HW's are all they are told to be..... Although I only can afford old used ones. ;)

At least triggerfest is being honest. It's nice to see the good and the bad opinions. If Diana imported more of the 240 and 280 models from their lineup and updated them with the T06 triggers and nicer stocks, then Weihrauch would have a bit more competition. But they didn't, now I'm waiting to see when the next batch of HW30's gets in stock. Looks like I'm not the only one either. Unless I break down and get the HW30 Urban Pro at AOA ($$$). Does the HW30 even need a can or is it for wow factor?

An Air Arms rifle is nothing to sneeze at, I can see why triggerfest mentioned it.
 I stated "German" earlier... guess I should have said "European" because a BSA is also high on my search list.

And just how deep does the Rabbit Hole go?  ;)

the Hw30 does not need a can. It sounds like a mouse fart. We have three of them in the house. The pellet hitting a rag stuffed cardboard box is louder than the gun. I shoot the gun while my girlfriend sleeps in the room above. I've stood by while my girlfriend shoots her's and it's loudest when you're the one behind the gun.

Be patient. Krale always has the best price and fastest shipping (like three days or less). They get them in stock about every couple weeks, so again, just be patient.

https://www.krale.shop/us/weihrauch-hw30-s/

Click on the drop down arrow for the caliber of your choice, and then insert your email in the appropriate box for notification of when they are back in stock.

It's worth the wait. You'll likely have it in your hands faster than AoA or Pyramyd.

Don't take the Urban Pro just because it's in stock. The Urban version is not a bad rifle in itself (I own one) but if you want to have all the options (i.e. open sights) wait for the genuine HW30S to come back in stock.
