The HW97 KT Tactical is the tactical stocked thumbhole version of the 97K. The advantage of a thumbhole stock is grip area. A thumbhole allows you to put more of your hand on the rifle and this aids in stability and accuracy. The advantage of the tactical version is the super resilient polymer stock that is both fully ambidextrous and a joy to shoot and hold.The HW97 series is one of the most popular underlever spring rifles in the world of tournament shooting. It has a reputation for stunning accuracy and reliability. It is well-balanced, easy to cock and load and has a superb trigger. This trigger is Weihrauch’s “Rekord” unit and is fully adjustable for weight and pull. The rifle’s accuracy comes partially from its “Fixed Barrel System”.
The HW97KT tactical is the best of all worlds; it has the polymer stock and the stunning blued action. This rifle is sometimes referred to as the Blackline and it is a wonderful rifle to use.
