    The 75 is a great pistol, it just needed to be two or three pumps instead of just the one, then it would have been a 5 star pistol.

    Yes this would be great! A little bit more Power with the same accuracy... this would be amazing! But on distances of 10m it is great!
    Thanks for watching!
    Best regards!

    3 pumps with a Webley Alecto, you'll be lucky to hit the floor with a well aimed shot, 1 pump puts it on target.

    Maybe that's why only 1 pump with the 75 and it is a 10 metre target pistol not a sporting pistol.

    I have an Alecto and three pumps is my usual power level which allows me to hit clays at 50yds.
    The HW75 at one pump is barely 2fpe which severely limits it's range which is a pity for such a great little pistol.

    Yes it is really a great Pistol. But you are right. Only for shooting on distances of 10-15m :-( Wish you a great week!
    Best!

    I like my HW75, the low power isn't an issue for me, I accept it for what it is, a precision plinker / basic target pistol.

    I find it to be a nice pistol to use at home indoors, not noisy and with the low power easy to make a safe and quiet backstop.

    One comment I would make having watched the video, on my HW75 there is no need to cock the hammer prior to pumping it, in fact I would consider having the hammer already cocked to be a less safe way of operating the pistol, especially if the manual safety is left in the off position.

    As above, I always cock the hammer as the last step before shooting.
    On opening the top strap, the top edge of the valve housing cams the hammer back slightly into a half-cock notch so it clears the valve pin. The hammer now cannot contact the valve pin until fired and it can't be fired until the hammer is fully cocked, so the gun cannot possibly fire accidentally during cocking.

    Mine is from the mid 1990s and I don't know if the modern ones have this feature, but it is a really safe system and makes the manual trigger block safety redundant.
