The HW98 has been designed for comfort and accurate shooting. The rifle does not have open sights so a telescopic sight is needed. It is well balanced and smooth to cock making for a pleasurable shooting experience. The world famous "Rekord"-trigger and a heavy barrel sleeve have been added to reduce the recoil and improve consistency which when combined with the special ambidextrous stock ensures a rifle which will turn heads due to both its looks and performance in the field. The Stock features stippling on pistolgrip and forearm for a higher level of grip, an adjustable cheekpiece and adjustable buttplate allowing a perfect fit to be achieved for optimum comfort.
