That HW 44 is a bolt-action pistol. Not a repeater. It requires a second hand to cock the hammer, index the magazine, and load each round.
As such, the SW 78 and 79 series are as fast and as accurate.
The Benjamin MRod pistol is all that at half the cost of the HW.
HW 44 looks OK, but at that price would rather it had a true repeater action like the millions of CO2-based 1911 clones out there shooting 6mm plastic or .177BBs.
Heck, the Crosman 600 design in .22 is nearly 60 years old...
and the actual repeater pistol was designed in 1892 by a German company.
Its not like HW does not have a long history of innovation from which to draw for a true repeater.
You cannot shortcut relevancy. HW needs to get back in the game from the top.
