Solid construction, accurate, light trigger-pull, easy to cock, fun to shoot! That's just about everything you could ever want in an air pistol. The HW 40 PCA is a single-stroke pneumatic, which means it requires just one cocking stroke of the overlever. Because it doesn't have a mainspring, it can also be dry-fired. If you want to increase your accuracy and trigger control, dry-firing can help you do that.

Unlike many production pistols, the HW 40 is made of quality materials. Manufactured by the legendary German Weihrauch factory, this air pistol has a rifled steel barrel. In fact, all critical mechanisms are made of ordnance steel, while the exterior shell is made of tough, durable polymers.

Whether you shoot righthanded, lefthanded, single-handed or two-handed, the HW 40 PCA can accommodate you! The ambidextrous design and the functionality of the cocking mechanism are convenient no matter what style of shooting you enjoy.

Accuracy is 0.20" center-to-center. You won't find too many pistols in this price range that can brag about that kind of accuracy! This pistol is perfect for shooting 10-meter targets, but you'll end up doing a lot more with it. Plinking, shooting spinners, and popping tin cans are loads of fun, and the HW 40 is up to the challenge!

Things I liked: Stunning trigger, works as advertised! This gun should cost twice what it does and is an amazing bargain. Feels good in my large hands and my friends who have smaller hands love it as well.

Things I would have changed: Safety is a little awkward in its placement. Would be nice if it were one handed operation. But not a deal breaker by any means.

What others should know: Do not try and hunt with this gun as it would be cruel. Not enough energy to do the job. I hope people understand that, even though it's obvious to some of us. some people mod the grip for "traction" but I don't see the need. It just fits so well in your hand. Thank you Weihrauch!

Things I liked: Finely crafted. The cocking mechanism is robust and easy to use with a little practice as is the loading routine. The trigger is a marvel with just enough take up to allow a relaxed aim and sure let off. The lack of recoil adds to the precision. I have fired some 500 rounds of various types and weight and have had no problems. The FPS is low but this is a target/plinker not a hunter arm. Money well spent. A very respectable, accurate pistol. Enjoy the optic sights. Automatic safety is a good thing with a trigger this light.

Things I would have changed: The gun is a bit light in the front for me. Some added weight might be nice. Some have concerns with polymer construction but it seems well done and there is metal where it is necessary.

What others should know: I have fired precision pellets (RWS), Chinese pellets, Daisy pellets and about everything else I had on the shelf with no problems and remarkably not much variation in accuracy though wad cutters seem the best. For just plinking even the less expensive Daisy pellets work fine
