    i believed u shot a bush chicken from 110m but u don't believe that i can put 2 shots in the same hole at 35yds hehe... it's not fair.

    advertised 410fps.

    according to other people it gives around 380fps for 8.4gr jsb

    Lovely piece of equipment - the HW40.

    Has anyone tried both the Gamo Compact AND the HW40? If so what are your views? Which is better? (accuracy, quality, feel etc) and as important - WHY?

    I got the HW40 and found the following positives:

    Ambidextrous (perhaps not the safety)
    Auto Safety
    Quality - solid feel
    Not a clone or replica - but does look like a firearm.

    I can see why you need the rubber around the grip, as the gun becomes very slippery. Thank goodness the HW40 didn't "bite" me whilst closing after cocking (I've done that practical lesson at least four times with my Compact) the HW has a very sharp looking set of teeth - almost blade like edge.

    The trigger seems to be set back very far (a long pull required). Accuracy is okay (excellent for the price).

    After trying both the Gamo Compact, and the HW40 at the same time, I would be hard pressed in giving either back, however if I had to choose to only keep one one it would be the Compact, purely as it is designed as a target pistol.

    The positives of the Compact are:

    Walnut grips
    Adjustable sights (HW as well) but the leaf width can be done on the Compact
    Trigger blade is position adjustable
    It comes with a neat case

    I wouldn't use either to shoot at anything beyond 10 to 15m therefore I chose to try shoot at olympic 10m target, and for anyone who hasn't tried this, do yourself a favour and try it. Great fun! And you can do it just about anywhere. Just remember that the disipline calls for one-handed shots only , which makes me wonder why the Compact has a finger placement type trigger guard.

    Hey Boondock - what pellets do you prefer in your HW40? Judging by you photos you seem to be getting (besides phenominal accuracy for those distances) very high speeds. I've noticed that at even 10m the pellet "tears" the target instead of "punching" a hole.

    the rubber grip is must have.

    HW40 got scope fitting place. u can hold scope tube as a handle to close the "scissors". much easier to do in this way than push the rear tight area.

    i think the accurecy is pretty good after scope fitted. i don't like the original sights. coz the rear sight may move when u push the "scissors" close.

    i got following reading from chorny :

    jsb 8.4gr@384pfs
    ts10 10.9gr@352pfs
    eun jin 15gr@244pfs.
    type 1@446pfs

    Ogre, i use jsb 8.4gr. it's working very well in the HW40.

    the target i use in photo was the standard practical pistol shooting target. around 3mm thickness.


    i would like to get following 2 pistols for collection but no idea who got them in stock locally.


    BAIKAL MP-654K CO2
    (90% of its parts are genuine Makarov pistol parts)




    NEW WALTHER CP99 COMPACT CO2 BLOW-BACK

    Boondock, where did you get the ruibber grip? I agree with Ogre, the plastic 'as is' grip can become a little slippery when sweaty mits are in contact.

    How many of you chaps are shooting pistols down in the cape? I am rather hoping that the chaps at Northcliff range will get their pistol shooting up and going. While I think shooting at tins can is fun, there is nothing like a bit of competition to focus the mind.

    Ogre, do you have a view on getting hold of the grips?

    albereth, the rubber grip can get from most gun shops and they were design to fit firearms. come with different shape and size as well. the one i m use was made for glock. working very well on HW40. price around R150-R180.
