Unread post HW45 or Hw70?
Hi, just after any advice or tips as to which of the 2 HW70 vs Hw45 (.177) anyone has experience with.

I narrowed it down to these 2, coming from a co2 firing instead, but would like advice on shooting accuracy of these and also handling/maintenance/reliability of these.

I've not been able to test any of them yet but on the lookout to purchase one.

Thanks

I own both, and they're two different animals. The HW70 is an open sight only breakbarrel that's pretty easy to shoot well, and with the typical 2-way recoil, though not much of it. The HW45 is closer to shooting a rim fire pistol since the piston moves from front to back when firing, recoiling back into the hand. The 45's are hold sensitive, and can provide a challenge to shoot well. Personally, I much favor the HW45 because of the challenge, and the gratification received from finally nailing the technique demanded for very accurate shooting. Both are very accurate and well made. RC

Many thanks for the reply RC, just another question how loud are these when firing i.e. if your firing in the back garden i think both are going to be loud but not as loud as a CO2 pistol. Are the sound surpressors any good and can they be fitted onto these with a standard 1/2" UNF adapter?

Neither is nearly as loud as a co2 pistol, and don't need, nor do I think they'd fit, a suppressor. Most of the sound from a springer is internal to the piston which I doubt neighbors would even hear. Let us know which pistol you choose. You already know where my preference lies, since I think the 45 is the most satisfying pistol I've ever shot, and I own 3 of them in the available calibers - .177, .20 & .22, all scoped. I like to plink tin cans with them from 25 yds. RC

Here's an excellent, informative article.

I own both of these pistols and like the other fella said they are totally different. I had trouble taming my HW45 it is a hard pistol to get used to. Firstly I put some walnut grips on it similar to what is on the HW75. I then put a RD30 Red scope on it, and both helped a lot. Lastly I sent it to Nick of Tinbum Tuning to work his magic on. I believe he trimmed the spring down put spring guides in, and now I have a beautiful fun pistol with which I can actually hit things with now. The HW75 is also a beautiful pistol to use but with no recoil. The best thing you can do is to find a gun shop where can try before you buy, to make the best choice. Or just say sod it and buy both. The HW45 will come with fibre optic sights the HW75 doesn't. All the best, Ade

Just realised now I am back on my PC not tablet it was a HW70 you were referring to not a HW75.

Thanks for the input guys, never thought about the HW75 - the no recoil setup on this is something im going to check especially coming from a co2 CP99.

Just a query which mount are you using with your HW45

Since the HW45's dovetails are a bit wider than the typical 11mm, a self centering mount is necessary or the scope/red dot will be off-center, and so, I use BKL mounts. They're also very suitable on powerful spring rifles because once installed they will not move regardless of the recoil.

I have an HW75 and an HW40(Beeman P-3), both single-stroke-pneumatics, both with the same barrel, and both very accurate and easy to shoot well. The trigger on each is excellent and adjustable. You can assume that if it's made by Weihrauch it will be a high quality shooter, and parts, down to the smallest screw or spring, are readily available. RC
