  • Aniket from USA asked:

    What is FAC version. Is this considered as a firearm and therefore does it require a firearms licence?

    • Tyler from USA:

      That really only applies to the UK. In the UK this is over their 6 FPE pistol limit.

  • Donald from USA asked:

    Can the compensator be removed ?

    • Tyler from USA:

      An update on this (Dec. 2018), the latest shipment has a non-removable suppressor affixed. The set screws have been changed in favor of a pinned on unit. Looks like it would be very difficult to remove.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Via two set screws, yes

  • jason from Canada asked:

    is the cocking lever adjustable for right and left hand sides of the reciver.? can it be switched from right to left side by the owner or the factory?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Yes it can be switched, not the easiest thing in the world to do, but it can be done

  • Gustavo from USA asked:

    Is there a folding stock available or in works?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Not that I have seen or heard

  • Jim from USA asked:

    Two questions: 1) Is the suppressor easily removable? 2) Could this be easily de-tuned; adjusted to a lower power level - maybe somewhere around 12 ft/lbs -- in order to increase the shot count?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Comes off with two allen screws (one on top, one on bottom). Yes, can be detuned via hammer spring adjustment, just remove the stock/grip.

  • Shawn from USA asked:

    Does the HW44 USA Model with suppressor come with a manufacturers box? whats included in the box? thanks

    • Tyler from USA:

      Update on this (Dec. 2018), the pistols are now coming in a cardboard box.

    • Tyler from USA:

      No, it ships in a soft case. Manuals, fittings and magazines are included

  • Richard from USA asked:

    Can the cocking action be changed from right to left?

    • Tyler from USA:


  • James J. from USA asked:


    • Tyler from USA:

      No, no such thing.

  • Bruce from USA asked:

    Is there a provision to add a shoulder stock like the Marauder pistol?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Not at this time.

  • David from USA asked:

    Seems pricey to me for the performance - basically a 3-pack of Marauder pistols with better overall performance and inexpensive 3rd party suppressors? I don't get offering a product like this in the U.S.

    • Tyler from USA:

      You don't have to "get" it, it's a niche product but definitely one that those looking for a lightweight, high end PCP pistol will appreciate. It doesn't have to be in everyone's wheelhouse, but clearly it has appealed to some as the first shipment is already sold out in both calibers.

  • Craig from USA asked:

    Will the HW44 meet the specifications for Pistol Field Target?....with the suppressor/without?

    • Tyler from USA:

      With the suppressor it is about 1/2" too long to comply with the 15" rule. Removed, it would be fine. The velocity out of the box is a bit high with most pellets, so a little hammer spring adjustment is needed. Grip/stock needs to be removed via one screw and a pin to access the adjustment screw.

  • Mario from USA asked:

    Why did they make it with the non-removable suppressor. You might as well get a rifle. It should be removable for compact carry. It looks like it can be removed. I was just about to order one but now it is too long for compact.

    • Tyler from USA:

      When I read carry, I don't typically think people mean hunting Jim. But from a hunting perspective, if it was legal to carry in your area while hunting...have at it.

    • Jim from USA:

      Tyler -- Why " a case"? What if someone wanted to carry this in a holster while hunting? The length w/suppressor would really make that cumbersome. I would like this as a field carry piece, while hunting with an air rifle.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Two set screws to remove. As far as "carry" goes....I would hope you mean for transport in a case.

  • Allen from USA asked:

    Max Shots per Fill = 10? Is that correct? What size (cc) is the tube? This gun seems way over priced for 10 shots at 570fps and only 10 shots. Hails bails, my modded Crosman 2240 .22 cal pistol can easily do 540fps and still get 30 shots on a 12 gram cartridge . . . and for a heck of lot less money.

    • Allen from USA:

      Thanks guys. Yes, now that they have put up the correct specification information I can read that too.

    • Tyler from USA:

      The gun does about 15 shots on the regulator (from 200 BAR to 120 BAR) and is shooting 15.89 grn JSB pellets at 700 fps. About 17 FPE

    • John from USA:

      10 shots is the magazine capacity not the # of shots per fill

  • John from USA asked:

    What is the weight and demensions of this unit?

    • Tyler from USA:

      Just under 3 lbs, 19" long and about 6.5" tall

  • p2sk from USA asked:

    Target Pistol Accurate?

    • Tyler from USA:

      @Allen, considerably more power than a 10m target pistol

    • Allen from USA:

      @ Tyler - "considerably more power" than what for a thousand dollars? Please!

    • Tyler from USA:

      Should be, but with considerably more power.
