The only way I have found is to push down on the latch release/Pull the trigger/Brace the barrel between my legs and hope I don't lose a finger.
Otherwise I have to either dry fire it, or put a pellet in it and go down to my basement range and fire it.
Is there any other way to de-cock these guns??

I'm not sure why you would want to decock it? If you forgot to put a pellet in it, just re-open the gun and put a pellet in it and it's good to be fired no?

How in the heck does it get cocked without putting a pellet in it and when you are not in a place to shoot it?

Im getting ready to change the barrel out for another. In order for me to see what screws I need to remove I have to open the gun which cocks it. Unlike my other springers that I can safely hold the barrel and pull the trigger to return the gun to the un-cocked setting, these guns have a well designed safety :mrgreen: that will only allow it to be fired to release the spring pressure.

If there is an easier way to remove the barrel without having to cock the gun, I would love to know. I have had the gun a short time and havent had the chance to tear it apart.

Put a felt cleaning pellet in and shoot the trash can!

There is no safe way to uncock this pistol... just insert a pellet or felt cleaning pellets and fire into a safe backstop.
Look at the front of the pistol at the bottom - there is a set screw that secures the main pivot pin in place. Loosen this screw, push the main pivot out, and remove the top half / upper frame / cocking lever of the pistol (whatever you want to call it). The cocking link slides out of the main tube at the front where the cutouts are wider. Do whatever you'd like with barrel swapping...etc. Reverse the process to reassemble. No need to swap the barrel with the gun cocked - that would not be safe.

So you needed to know how to change a barrel in a HW45/P1, why didn't you just ask about it? The more details you give when you ask a question the best the answer will be.

Thanks!! Thats what I was thinking :D , but like I said, in order for me to see what I needed to do I had to look at how it operated. Which involved me lifting the barrel/breach. It was a catch .22(lol I had to use that pun)

Thanks for the input guys.

I fired one of those felt cleaning pellets from my .22 HW98 - what a racket - had to be almost EXACTLY like dry firing the gun. Fortunately for me, it did not damage the gun. I will never fire one of those felt pellets again, without a lead pellet behind it.

I believe you're supposed to fire several felts at once in a springer, although I've never used them.

I've always put a pellet behind the felt(s) - so no problem with not enough weight.

Never just one my friend! I use three and the first one is oiled! I do that to the Hurricane before storage!

Saying "I use 3 felt pellets with the first one oiled so that I'm not dry-firing my springer, would have been a very good suggestion.

I know it's a small point, but the same erroneous suggestion has been printed before - Oh - just use a felt pellet to clean your rifle barrel - NOT- it's LOUD and nasty and can damage your rifle. I understand NOW and of course, did that only once. Now, I use a pellet as well as a cleaning pellet and that works just fine.
