Suggestions for Weihrauch HW 30S Scope



Log in to see fewer ads
Just picked up a nice Weihrauch HW 30S springer and am looking to scope it.

Would like to keep price in the $100 or less range and am looking for suggestions. I will probably shoot both target and varmints with it. Would like to have up to 9 power, but higher might be ok, AO and probably variable but fixed might be an option as well.

In my initial research, it looks like the UTG scopes might fit the bill. Any thoughts on these scopes?

BSA Sweet 22 works well on my springer. Many recommend the Hawke scopes for springers.

My experiences with the Nikon EFR have proved to be excellent on any of my springer rifles, a bit more than you care to spend though.

I have a pair of BSA Essential airgun scopes sitting idle since upgrading, a 3-9x40 and a 3-12x44, both in perfectly usable condition, PM if interested.

I have a Hawke 2x7 on a pcp, it would be great on the HW30.

I have Hawke 2-7x32's on both an HW30 and a Beeman R7. They fit proportionally and both deliver adequate target pictures in my 30-yard range in my backyard.

I had already purchased a Hawke 3x9x40 AO before I saw the previous two posts. I had contemplated the 2x7 Hawke but settled on the 3x9.

Save it for a larger HW50S and get a 2-7x32 for your smaller 30S?

I just got a 30s also. I have a Nikon 3-9 efr on the way but the toughest decision I'm having is which mount to use. One piece or two piece. Does the barrel have droop? Don't know yet! I'm leaning towards the advice of a well known member on GTA and going the cheap route for now with a UTG dovetail to Picatinny adapter and Weaver rings and if I find out I have droop then I'll get Burris Z rings with the inserts that I can use to offset the droop. What did you guys use?

UTG has a droop compensating single piece mount/rings. They also make very good inexpensive scopes for springers, especially if you find them on sale.

I don't see a larger HW 50S in my future so will just go with the 3x9. Thanks for the input though.

I always recommend a Leupold 3-9x33 EFR for a good quality springier.

Scope

I had a weaver 3x9 a.o. On mine. Worked great. I took it off and installed a Williams peep . Works great, and keeps the weight down. I have 5 or 6 larger and more powerful air rifles that are suited for longer range, thus needing a scope.

Hawke 2-7X32

I have a Hawke 2-7x32 on my HW30. Sighted in at 15 yards it shoots flat from 10-25 yards. Aim 1 mildot high at 40 yards. I'm using Crosman Pointed 7.9 gr in the 1250 milk cartons.

Cheap but effective is the Bushnell 4X from Walmart on my R7.

I've had this UTG on my R7 for a couple of years without any issue, I shoot it 4-5 days a week.
