How do you tune a Weihrauch HW45?
Weihrauch HW45 is a diva! It is stubborn and difficult to handle. It takes weeks or even months of training to be able to achieve a consistently good result. After I haven’t got anywhere with the air pistol, I researched on the Internet how to tame the HW45.
In the process, this page www.airrifletuning.com caught my eye. There was a tuning kit for Weihrauch HW45 which doesn’t increase the power but is supposed to make the recoil more controllable. This is what I’ve been looking for.
I ordered it quickly, waited 8 days, and then the package arrived from England.
But now it was time for the not so easy modification. In advance: Get some safety glasses! Have fun with the video:
