I bought an Weihrauch HW70 Black Arrow with a 2x20 Weihrauch scope about 4 weeks ago, and I have been shooting it almost exclusively since. It gets 1/4-3/8th inch groups at 10 meters with regularity. The 6 1/2 inch barrel is very good at building confidence. Although the advertised velocity is 410-415 fps.,I am getting 460fps with JSB RS Exact 7.33 grain pellets. I have only shot it outside at 20 meters once when there was a break in winter. It seemed to hit everything I aimed at. There is very little recoil which only aids in obtaining pin point accuracy.

So why did I give this pistol 4 stars? I am not happy with the trigger. Mine seems to be a very long creepy single stage. It does have an adjustment, however it seems to adjust the effort needed to break, and does nothing for lessoning the amount of creep. I must admit however, this has aided me in holding on target as I squeeze the shot off. I cannot say weather the regular HW70s' trigger is any different from the one on the Black Arrow. I would say that if you are looking for an accurate pistol that is easy to cock and fun to shoot, do not miss out on this one

Great finish and build quality. Mine is with the black stock and adjustable sights. Easily get small cloverleaf groups @ 10yards with good pellets (JSB light). Very enjoyable and have put over 500 pellets thru her. Reliable, never a problem.

Metal finish seems to be a epoxy coating and so far has been VERY durable. Trigger was fine out of the box and has smoothed out since.

Very happy with HW70.

This is a classic air pistol.
VERY accurate at 15 yds with .177 RWS Meisterklugen.
I love it's simplicity and it will go on forever.

Buy the 'Black Arrow' if you can find one.
