Things I liked:

I bought this air pistol as a trainer for my S&W Model 41 rimfire I use for Bullseye. It's about as close as I could find and possibly more accurate. I can easily shoot dime size groups resting on a hard surface at 10 meters and no doubt will do better after I find the right pellets. There is no detectable recoil and it's very quiet. I was concerned about the power but It has more power than my CO2 Colt 1911 by Umerax. In fact it has enough power to knock over my Gamo Squirrel target while my Colt does not. I shot at the bottom of an empty tuna can at 50 ft and it put a large dent but would not penetrate. It has enough power to comfortably shoot bullseye target at 50ft which is all the power I need. It's also great for plinking tin cans and metallic silhouette. It's not a hunting pistol however. The workmanship is top quality. It's also lighter than I expected. The trigger is about as good as they get. Better than my rimfire target pistol.

Things I would have changed:

The rail is a bit large for mounting red dots. I did manage to mount an 11mm red dot but I had to back out the screws a ways. The grip is not as comfortable as it looks. I would like to remove some metal from the grip under the trigger or make the grip wider to cover it up. The grip is too short for my hand. Perhaps a longer grip would solve this problem. I might make a custom grip for it.

What others should know:

This air pistol will make all your other air pistols obsolete. It's very addicting and hard to put down.

By Tim from USA on 2016-09-12 22:11:04

Things I liked:

The gun is very accurate.

Things I would have changed:

The gun has started leaking. The gun will fire if shot quickly after pumping but the pressure will leak off in a minute or two so SHOT predictability is poor. It will need to be sent in for repairs.

What others should know:

This is an update of my previous five star review. My HW75 has started leaking. It leaks off in a minute or so. I will need to seek service. I sent an email to Weirauch and they said to contact Pyramyd, which I have not yet had the time to do.

    Things I liked:

    Easy to operate and accurate. Very quiet and almost no recoil. Great grips, and I love the hammer action!

    Things I would have changed:

    Not a thing.

    What others should know:

    Great air pistol! I own an HW45, IZH-46M and Sig ASP and really like all of them for different reasons. Recently received the AV-46M and Diana LP8, but don't have enough time on them to compare. If I had to pick just one (luckily I don't) this might be the one.

    Things I liked:

    Smooth operation; accurate; consistency in power shot after shot; well built. Got a consistent 430fps (avg) out of the H&N 5.25gr lead-free pellets... out of the box. We'll see if it'll gain an extra 10fps after 1000 rounds.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing at the moment. Perhaps longterm durability(?) say after 5000 shots ...haven't gotten there yet myself so can't really say its not going to be as a tight fit as the first 500 shots.

    What others should know:

    Its well built but we'll see after 5000 shots... lots of mechanical moving of parts after every shot/cocking. If it'll last, then this pistol is worth EVERY penny (and more).

    Things I liked:

    I was able to shoot a 1in pattern at 10 meters ( 33 ft ) after sighting in. I've shot over 300 rds so far and getting better.

    Things I would have changed:

    The back sight adj screw would not allow the sight to lower. I had to install a washer between head of screw and sight to add more movement.

    What others should know:

    When cocking make sure your shirt doesn't get caught on the down swing. I am very happy with this gun!!!

    Things I liked:

    Easy operation, full sized hand grip, default trigger, presentation.

    Things I would have changed:

    More explicit maintenance instructions, produce manual that doesn't include spring piston advice, indented markings instead of laser etched.

    What others should know:

    After using the Chinese Beeman P17 single stroke pneumatic for a few months this was my upgrade. I immediately noticed trigger. Instead of an unpredictable crunch with the sub $40 P17, I now have a predictable break. Continuing the comparison, this new German pistol completes its cocking stroke far easier than the P17. Where my shirt would get caught in the action while forcing the P17 closed, this P2, ahem, HW75 is much lighter and is completed without using the leverage of the knee or gut. The rear sight is directly over the leverage to cock the P17. The HW75 rear sight is placed further back. It shouldn't affect either pistol sight setting, but is unnerving with the P17. I love my P17 mainly for the fun per dollar ratio. I also love this HW75 for meeting all points I felt deficient on the P17. Both pistols are receiving equal attention, love and absolute lack of regret. 10 meter target shooter.

    Things I liked:

    Well made and accurate. Trigger is very good.

    Things I would have changed:

    Front sight is not high enough, had to bottom out rear sight to sight in for point of aim. Would like to have some material removed under trigger guard for a higher hold.

    What others should know:

    The reviews I read commented on how difficult the Gun was to pump. I did not find this to be a problem. Would like to see all metal parts and a better rear sight.

    Things I liked:

    Great grip for me. I have long narrow hands and the grip fits perfectly. The sights. My next visit to the optometrist will have me walking out with glasses. But with these sights, I have shot 5shot one hole groups on occasion. With a Bushnell Trophy red dot I shot seven 5 shot one hole groups from a bench rest at 37 ft. Trigger. Perfect, clean, crisp right out of the box. I am leaving it as is. As I only shoot paper spot targets, spinners, pop cans, velocity is not a problem. I have springers, CO2 and now the HW-75. I enjoy them all immensely. The HW-75 filled a niche. Now I am going back to give the HW a workout with Meisterkugeln pistol 7.0 gr, pellets which are very accurate. I could not ask for a better pneumatic pistol for my purposes.

    Things I would have changed:

    Rear sights are adjustable, however there does not appear to be a detent in either windage or elevation.

    What others should know:

    Detent needed in rear sight adjustments.

    Things I liked:

    The air pistol is beautiful, well made and has great balance, I have always wanted this pistol to compete in air pistol silhouette shooting. The trigger breaks clean the accuracy of this pistol is amazing this pistol is designed for elegant target shooting for limited distance shooting. Once you get use to the firing sequence I have hit aluminum beverage cans at Thirty and Forty yards easily.

    Things I would have changed:

    This air pistol has been in existence for many years also known as the Beeman P-2, I can not think of any thing I would change to improve on this air pistol. The air release hammer is positive mechanical function serving as a hands on trainer. I suppose if a gas ram power plant could ever be designed this would be unique and providing additional velocity for rivaling other air pistols, I also have a HW45.

    What others should know:

    This air pistol is well made by HW, the original manufactures producing the Beeman P-2 air pistol this air pistol is made for 10 meter and beyond air pistol shooting. The air pistol power is limited but the pin point accuracy of this pistol will provide serious air pistol shooters. Enjoyment for the shooter who loves shooting 2 shots in an elongated hole this is the ultimate for any air gunner enthusiast.

    Things I liked:

    Very nice quality, excellent trigger, quiet, no recoil, super accurate. I use it for plinking and on my 10M basement range. This gun is a keeper. I would buy it again.

    Things I would have changed:

    An overtravel adjustment on the trigger would be nice.

    What others should know:

    Be aware that the dovetail is about 13.5mm, not the more standard 11mm. Standard 11mm mounts won't fit well. I used Sportsmatch HTO8C13MM mounts. BKL Technologies also has options. The grips are comfortable for my smallish hands, but may be cramped for large hands. My gun loves 7.0 gr. Meisterkugeln pellets.

    Things I liked:

    Well Made, feels like my old military Colt 45. I don't need anything but pellets and I am out plinking away.

    Things I would have changed:

    I like everything about this gun - even taking my time to insert pellets. I am rewarded with a straight shooter and a great training pistol that provides hours of fun. Quiet the gun down a bit? It's not too terribly loud if you have a lot of yard, but, if your neighbor's are close, they will fuss. A moderator would probably ruin the looks and the feel of this gun.

    What others should know:

    It is a little tough to charge/cock as in it takes some pretty good force to compress the gas chamber and close. I don't have a way to measure the force required to close the breech, but, I don't think this gun is a good choice for people with hand strength problems. Cocking this pistol is like using bush loppers on a 1" sapling branch for comparison. If however you have no arm or chest strength problems, this is a wonderful choice for a pellet pistol. This gun pairs nicely with a compact red dot scope like a Sig Sauer Romeo 5, (but), it is hard to place the scope in a place where you can still get a good hand grip to close the breech.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased this air pistol to shoot 10-meter matches because my HW70A is not permitted due to its hooded front sight. It shoots slightly under3 ft-Lbs. There is no detectable recoil and no muzzle jump. The trigger is good, better than my HW70A trigger but not what I call a match trigger. I had this pistol since November 2018 and I cannot shoot a group smaller than the groups I shot with my HW70A. The accuracy of the HW75 is about the same as my HW70A; the HW75 has a better trigger but my HW70A has a longer sight radius which I like. For the money I was not impress with the HW75 as most reviews written here; I purchased this pistol based mostly on all the positive reviews. If I can get a hold of a used FWB 100 or 101 or 103 I would purchase it instead of this HW75.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish the muzzle velocity is higher. The grip is not as comfortable as it looks. A longer sight radius is preferred. I wish the cocking stroke cocks the hammer so that I dont have to cock it. Lastly, I wish I can shoot smaller groups than my HW70A.

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Accurate. no recoil. Great trigger. Dovetail on top for another electronic sight or scope. Good adjustable rear sight. The grips fit my hand perfectly. Easier to cock than many other ssp pistols. It won't replace my fwb 65 or the Baikal 46 but it is a keeper. If you have this gun you don't need a Beeman p1 or the P3.

    Things I would have changed:

    Lower price, Higher velocity. But nothing is perfect.

    What others should know:

    This not a training pistol for regular guns. You need a spring piston for the recoil for training. Despite the looks the pistol is balanced very well. Not awkward like it looks or clumsy. It takes a little practice to learn how to load the pellet. With practice loading is not a problem.

    Things I liked:

    Heirloom Quality

    Things I would have changed:

    Grips small for large hands (ditto for the P3). Make the scope grooves 11mm - they're actually about 13.462mm (0.530") as measured with a micrometer.

    What others should know:

    Great pistol, Heirloom quality somewhat justifies its cost. Note my comments about the grips and the scope grooves - annoying, but not deal killers. I actually find my P3 a bit easier to shoot accurately. I have a Red Dot on mine, though it was a pain to mount because of the unusual groove spacing. The lack of recoil is both welcomed and spooky. I have no regrets!

    Things I liked:

    Absolutely exudes quality. Great feel in the hand. Extremely repeatable accuracy - any inaccuracy is all mine.

    Things I would have changed:

    Loading the pellet is a tad challenging the first couple of times, but easy to get used to.

    What others should know:

    If you can afford this pistol, don't hesitate. It has essentially no recoil, so that can be either a good or bad thing. For me, it is desirable; however, some might want the P1 for non-pellet training.

    The grips are slightly too thin for my preference, although they offer excellent one-handed grip for being ambidextrous. Sights could use more contrast.
