Don't feel bad. That Beeman/HW springer pistol is very hard to shoot with consistent accuracy. I have the HW labeled version.

Mine is marked P1. I believe they are the same model.

I went back and shot again at 5 yards and did a lot better.

I checked my range out after the snowfall and discovered my traps are full of snow. If the wind ever dies down I’m going to shoot the snow out of them.

Yes, the Beeman P1 is the HW 45. The HW comes with different sights. Otherwise, same gun. Hard to shoot with accuracy, yes, given it's a fairly powerful springer, but quality is superb. Love mine.

Mine has a Beeman Model 25 scope on it which I believe was made specific for this pistol. It has the weight and balance of a 1911. I wanted to shoot it again today but it snowed all day and the wind never let up.

Nice looking pistol and I am glad to see that they went with the "A-1" arched main spring housing.

Yeah, tell me about the snow. It's getting old. Spent much of the shoveling instead of shooting.

No snow here...😉😂thank goodness.
Mid 50's, but the danged wind the past couple days.
I managed a little time in the back yard earlier to spite it with these two.
The H001 and the Wrangler.
