02 - On the website I do not see the black powder, is it available, what do I have to do to be able to buy it, what documents do I need and what kind of powder should I use for my gun?

We inform you that we sell and distribute black powder, Pow-Ex in ½ kg packs and Swiss black powder in 1 kg packs, throughout the national territory to the gun dealers who require it.

For the use and therefore for the purchase of the black powder it is necessary to be a license holder. Otherwise you can check whether the Shooting Range in your area has the black powder and, in this case, you can use the gun inside the shooting range using the black powder provided by the shooting range itself; alternatively the shooting range can require it from a trusted gun dealer. In this regard, WANO also offers small packs of 62.5 grams of black powder, called "SAFETY TUBE", which the shooting range can deliver to the shooter for use at the shooting range only.

03 - How can I measure the powder, if the load exceeds, what happens, can the gun explode?

No! The gun does not explode, obviously only black powder must be used and the safety measures indicated in the manual must be respected.

We suggest never to load the gun directly from the powder flask, but to transfer the black powder from the flask into a measurer (Different models are available: USA189, USA192, USA193, USA195, USA196, USA197 USA199).

To optimize the shooting result it is not necessary to use excessive loads of black powder since the excess quantity remains unburned causing the shot to be worse. Remember that, the powder and only the black one, even if exceeding the load, does not cause situations of danger
