This simple spring piston airgun is cocked just like the break barrel air rifles. The single cocking stroke will generate up to 440 fps making this a powerful airgun, despite its moderate size and light weight. These aspects alone make the HW70A the perfect choice for shooters small and large to take along on an outing.
Considered a very attractive air pistol, the fine barrel and receiver bear an extremely durable dark blue-black epoxy finish with an unusually high luster. The stock is molded in a deep brown with a durable scratch resistant texture. There is even a thumb shelf in the grip for both right and left-handed shooters making this an ambidextrous design.
For an economy gun, the HW70A has one of the finest triggers available. The two stage unit pulls back evenly and consistently to a stop, at which point the shooter knows just the slightest bit more pressure will set off the unit. A wide, beautifully grooved trigger blade is machined from aluminum, and adds to the control of the unit. The pistol now includes an automatic safety on the left side; it is engaged each time the gun is cocked, and can easily be disengaged (or re-engaged) with the thumb.
The accuracy is very good for a sporting pistol thanks to the full six inch barrel with the fine 12 groove rifling. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation, and the hooded post front sight allows for quick centering on the target. The gentle firing behavior of the HW70 is another benefit of the gun. The gun shoots very smoothly, with little vibration, and just enough recoil to get a "sense of shooting."

Bought one for my Fathers birthday 25 years ago. Could not figure out why the old man could out shoot me in High power pistols at the range. Found out after his death from my mother that he spent countless hours shooting it in the house hall way. All the quality That Beeman is famous for and truly a smooth cocking precision pellet gun.
