The Weihrauch HW45 Black Star over-lever spring powered air pistol is widely regarded amongst serious air gunners as an excellent target pistol and vermin pistol.
Available in .177 & .22 calibre, is an exceptional pistol for pest control as well as a target pistol, all the HW45 range are fitted with fibre optic inserts built into the foresight and adjustable rear sights that glow brightly, in low light conditions.
The power output is 5.3 Ft Lbs with an option to lower the power setting to 2.5ft Lbs as well as precision two stage trigger, there is also a dovetail style rail for the easy attachment of external optics.
There is a simple loading procedure where you pull back a dummy hammer, this releases the top half of the action, lift this up and forward against the spring tension, insert the pellet into the barrel, close, aim and shoot.
Bristol Airguns opinion is the standard HW45 has wooden textured grips, is ideal for wet cold conditions and is excellent for despatching vermin close up, however if you are after distance we would recommend the Black or Silver Star versions as they both have ergonomic handgrips which fit most hands like a glove, improving accuracy and in our opinion worth the little extra money.
Please note you will require the specialist 13mm Mounts to fit additional optics to this pistol (found in accessories).
Please Note: This gun is a genuine Hull Cartridge stamped UK Import and comes with full official UK warranty.
