My HW45, and some of my other pistols, require a slightly different grip to cope with the recoil direction. Use less fingers on your grip, and your consistency may improve. I was having similar issues with my HW, until I got a clue from a well-informed airgunner who'd had one for years. I tried his suggestion on a couple of different pistols that had "unconventional" recoil (like a Webley MK1, a Tempest and a Predom Lucznik-the Walthers LP53 copy). Wow- suddenly I'm getting tighter groups.
The HW's a big pistol, but well balanced. Try just using your second finger and thumb to hold the pistol. If that's too awkward, add your third finger only. This looser grip allows the pistol to react more naturally to the direction of recoil. Too tight a grip intererferes with this, and causes unpredictable POIs. As I was told, don't try to strangle it...
It seems counter-intuitive, but it works...


I can confirm that this technique improved my accuracy with my Webley Hurricane - quite dramatically actually. I also use it with the Tanfoglio 1911 replica I have. Not much difference in accuracy with that one, not surprising as it's a well-worn BB repeater. All that practice with that grip however did mean that when my friend let me shoot his 1911 at the range I felt comfortable and shot it reasonably well right from the start!

This is a nice addition for a HW45 fan (if you can find one)

I saw pictures of these stocks but never know they had been listed on PA hs website ~

I have a question a if using this stock, we will use the same loosed hold on the gun like other springer rifles?

Yes, like all/most springers, they benefit from the artillery hold.
