“HW40 PCA”

Written on: 13/05/2012

HW40 PCA .177 review Bought one of these a few weeks back as a cheap way back into air pistol shooting. It is many years since I shot a pistol of any kind but this one is simply great fun. The HW40 is a single stroke pneumatic air pistol i.e. you charge it with air each time you open it to load a pellet. With a Hawke red dot atop the rail it shoots accurately and pro vides all the enjoyment I could want. Pellets in use atm are H &N FTT's which I had left over from the riles but will try… Read Full Review

“weihrauch hw40 pistol”

Written on: 19/10/2011 by davymole1 (12 reviews written)

I bought this pistol on a visit to dorset this summer from southern counties gun shop for £102.99 money well spent .It feels good in the hand easy to cock and load mine is .177 ,the tru-glow sights I find very good this is the second weihrauch airgun I have bought this year both have the same german build quality. There,s nothing to dislike about this pistol. being partly disabled I tried both this and the webley alecto which I had difficulty in pumping this is just the one pump ideal ,would… Read Full Review

You're not going to like this, but I bought the BEEMAN P17 Chinese made equivalent of the WEIHRAUCH HW40 for 1/4 of the price & it'san exact copy, except for the sights which are the more standard rear notch fully adjustable type & are perfectly matched to this pistol.
Everything about this airgun apparently is the same otherwise & the performance matches also. I believe WEIHRAUCH buyers are being ripped off when comparing the two pistols & only those who want the 'snob' value of having the WEIHRAUCH name should buy one & I genuinely feel that those who believe the hype saying the Chinese version is rubbish should try them both & see for themselves. I want value, accuracy & performance & I've got it for the price.
Sincerely.

In responce to your comment on the HW40 having tried a number of new and second hand Beeman p17 copies I found them to have poor build quality and differing power levels over a crono.Up to 6 months old similar in power then it falls off very quickly At £54 at my local gun store yes I looked but still decided on the weihrauch try weighing the two together the chinese has lost a little weight I wonder where its in the quality of the materials used, My other Weihrauch rifle is 8 years old and looks and fires like it did after having its first tin of Accpels though its barrel.Everones entitled to there opinions but I felt it was mony well spent.Tell me in 5 years time about your Chinese copywill it still perform as well I don,t think so ,even I like a bargin but when It came to choice the Weihrauch won .Years ago you had only Webley or BSA even I had a early Beeman where is it know recycled unable to stand the test of time.Get back to me in a couple of years and let me know how yoyr Chinese Copy is still faring thanks for your comment and good luck with yor BEEMAN

having checked lately on the prices of the hw40 found its dropped below the £100 mark due I think to the euro/pound where the beeman has gone up so very little price difference.the hw40 still brings a smile to my face everytime I shoot it, the mole

They say dont hunt with any air pistol but out to 15 yards this pistol is lethal on squirrels, wood pigeon and crows (headshots only of course). Linked with a Hawke SportDot and AirArms Field Diablo in .177 it's an awesome pice of kit. This gun wil group sub half inch at 15 yards therefore I have no hesitation in using it for short range pest control… Read Full Review

“This is a stylish single stroke;pneumatic ”

Written on: 04/10/2009 by 00Tonio (6 reviews written)

This is a stylish single stroke;pneumatic
Good points;it's German and it's built steel and polymer.A great goodlooking dynamic pistol.(Careful for chinese imitations.'Made in Germany'is underneath the top part of gun when you open it).
Clever loading system;you 'cock'the hammer and it opens up with a gentle hiss.
Accuracy is also outstanding and it's quiet.
Target pistols can be so expensive but this is High quality at low price around £130.
Bad points;none.This is a pistol for those who want to… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/09/2009 by Dehouser (11 reviews written)

I recently picked up an older HW40, the version sans tru-glo sights. The gun would not hold air for any length of time and was a trifle anemic in terms of velocity. It needed a new piston seal and a breech seal, both of which are easy to source through a hydraulic shop (nitrile o-rings are all they are). I cleaned up the piston head and compression chamber, coated the new seals with silicon oil, and installed them. Much better: no leaks and a noticeably crisper contact sound on my paper… Read Full Review

EXCELLENT!i brought a webley tempest which was quite frankly very disappointing - poor quality very heavy -very innacurate even with red dot sight (which fell to bits due to the jolting when firing)
Read reviews on Weihrauch HW40 and picked up one for £75 as new-bargain!
First impressions were that it was very light and plasticky feeling and how was it going to shoot a pellet! How wrong was that first impression!
Extremely accurate is an understatement- at 10yds with red dot freestanding i can… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2009

The Weihrauch HW 40 PCA /Beeman P3 is light and easy to use. Very accurate 6yds and 10 mtr. Our scout group uses one every week with 8 or more people shooting 10 or 20 shots each time. As it is left or right handed and safty is easy to operate most scouts go for it. Only bad point is after a lot of shots the piston seal lets by [1500 -2000]shots… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/12/2008 by Summj002 (16 reviews written)

When weighed up, I think that the Weihrauch is the best air pistol money can buy. Spend on this and you won't be disappointed.
Lastly I would like to say that there are other guns similar to this (The Beeman P-1, The Beeman P-3) but they aren't made with the same materials and while they are decent pistols for plinking etc., they cannot keep up to the level of accuracy the HW 40 provides… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/08/2008 by cole5169 (19 reviews written)

The Weihrauch HW 40 PCA is a single-stroke pneumatic over-lever air pistol. The "hammer" is actually a latch, holding the back of the receiver in place. Pulling back on the hammer releases the top half of the receiver, which can then be rotated forward. This action fills the compression tube with air.

When the receiver is levered back into position - which takes considerable force - this air is compressed and stored for the next shot.

While open, a .177 pellet is fed manually directly into… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2008

At first I was impressed; the HW40 PCA shoots pretty much as well as my Walther LP53, and FWB 65 & 80.
After some more testing, I found that the elevation screw is moving by itself and that the grooves to stop it are cut too shallow. Checking on some other airgun sites, this seems to be a common problem.

It is not the quality that I expected for three times the money that the chinese copies cost!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/04/2008 by cptman (39 reviews written)

I have a webley Nemisis which is also a pneumatic air pistol, but the two don't compare, the weihrauch handles much better although i would say the power is about the same.
The tru-glow sights are not to everybodys taste but i like them.
unfortunately the rear sight elevation screw is slightly faulty, i have e.mailed Weihrauch and asked them to post me a replacement, i will let you know what their customer service is like in due course… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/01/2008 by QuickDrawJim (1 review written)

I bought this pistol on a whim, being mainly into air rifle shooting, but must say that for what it is designed for, it does it perfectly well. Weihrauch don't claim that it is an all-round air pistol, and rightly so. They designed it for informal target shooting and that?s exactly what it does - and does very well in fact.

If you want an air pistol with the power to shred some coke cans, or shoot objects out to 45 yards, then may I suggest that the HW45 would be the gun that you need rather… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/11/2007 by jes437 (6 reviews written)

I wanted a reliable gun which would allow all year outdoor shooting, my co2 pistols' performance has waned with the onset of Winter weather, and this one made me curious after a lengthy handling in the gun shop. I'd gone in there to look at true target air pistols, but this became an attractive and far less costly step to take.

Starting with the negative, that handling session was necessary because on first glances the gun is difficult to take seriously. There's been some attempt at jazzing it… Read Full Review
