I have the opportunity to acquire an almost new HW95 Luxus in .22 cal. from a co-worker.
I haven't dabbled with air rifles since the mid 1970's when I had a Sheridan "Blue Streak" 5mm/.20 cal. so I am entering uncharted waters with the HW95.
I will be using it for local vermin and punching paper in the back yard.
Any experience you may have with the HW95 that you'd care to share is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

If nothing else do a interweb search for HW-95 using your we browser.
Might want to look on youtube also.

I'm thinking AEAC and Giles ? both reviewed the 95.

Also check what some of the shops are charging for new ones.

StarchedCover, I've been shooting an HW95 in 22 cal for about 3 years now and couldn't be happier with it. It is my first high end air rifle so I did a lot of research before buying it and everybody seems to give it rave reviews. Mine has been very accurate and reliable. I've actually shot it a lot and have not had any issues. The trigger is excellent.

It is considered to be one of the best spring piston guns on the market. For the purposes you plan on using it for it should be perfect. My advice would be to buy it.

I'd jump on that if I had the chance.
If you lose interest it won't be hard to sell.

Searching the internet and a few different forums led me to a wealth of information on the HW95 Luxus in 22 cal.; it sounds like it is a first rate air rifle.
Have you every heard the "expression you snooze you lose" ? While I was doing my research the seller got full asking price of $400.00 for the rifle, Sportsmatch Rings, 8 tins of various pellets.
Having viewed the original receipt, I went to Air Guns of AZ and found the rifle new for $419.98 (granted it's out of stock and should ship in three weeks).
While I missed out on one the slightly used one I'll just wait for mine to come in.

I do believe that is the parent of the Beeman R9. I have an R9 and love it.
