Solid construction, accurate, light trigger-pull, easy to cock, fun to shoot! That's just about everything you could ever want in an air pistol. The HW 40 PCA is a single-stroke pneumatic, which means it requires just one cocking stroke of the overlever. Because it doesn't have a mainspring, it can also be dry-fired. If you want to increase your accuracy and trigger control, dry-firing can help you do that. Unlike many production pistols, the HW 40 is made of quality materials. Manufactured by the legendary German Weihrauch factory, this air pistol has a rifled steel barrel. In fact, all critical mechanisms are made of ordnance steel, while the exterior shell is made of tough, durable polymers. Whether you shoot righthanded, lefthanded, single-handed or two-handed, the HW 40 PCA can accommodate you! The ambidextrous design and the functionality of the cocking mechanism are convenient no matter what style of shooting you enjoy. This pistol is perfect for shooting 10-meter targets, but you'll end up doing a lot more with it. Plinking, shooting spinners, and popping tin cans are loads of fun, and the HW 40 is up to the challenge!
