The KT variant of the HW100 is the thumbhole carbine version. The thumbhole design is probably the most attractive of the HW100 and it is also the favourite amongst precision shooters. A thumbhole stock enables the shooter to place more skin on the stock and this helps the shooter control the rifle. The Stock is made from quality oiled walnut and is fully ambidextrous. There are also finger groves in the fore end for extra stability, couple this with a carbine length barrel and you have what is often described as the ultimate HW100, the carbine barrel is 10cm shorter than the standard found on the S and this can be a real benefit when moving around woodland. It also makes the rifle more compact and this helps shooters keep stable when they are taking both standing and kneeling shots.
The HW100 is probably the finest all round PCP (Pre-Charged Pneumatic) on the market today. It is the darling of the target shooting world with multiple national level shooters using them. It is also found in the hands of the best hunters and plinkers alike. Target shooters love the HW100 because of its reliability and accuracy and hunters love it because of the multi-shot magazine system, high shot count and usability.
The HW100 is a regulated rifle (Weihrauch call it an air metering system) and has a fully adjustable trigger and legendary build quality. The HW100 is often described as the only Air-Rifle you will ever need.
