    Default Info on my spring gun

    I have a spring gun that I know nothing about. Here are it's markings.

    HW 55M
    made in Germany
    Kal 4.5

    WEIHRAUCH
    WELLRICHSTAD-BAY

    It has fully adjustable rear sight that looks expensive, and hooded front sight with changable appatures.
    Any information that you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
    Regards to all.

    Weihrauch is very top-end. 4.5 mm. is .177 caliber, very standard. You will enjoy the front sight options if it's a globe sight, you can get anything from different size posts, crosshairs, aperture-with-crosshair, etc. I'd recommend the Lee Shaver set of reticles if you don't get the rifle with an assortment.

    Thank you guys for your timely info. You are right, pictures would be helpful, and I hope to post some in the next couple of days. From the exploded diagram that Armarin sent, I can definately tell that it is indeed a Weihrauch HW 55. It has a multiadjustable rear sight that I hope you will be able to in the pictures.
