    I've just bought a Umarex Beretta 92A1 - fantastic pistol cannot recommend it enough.

    For something lighter, quick firing and with a fantastic light trigger then the KWC PO8 is very hard to beat.

    If she is happy with a single loader then the Crosman 2240 is the one to go for.

    S&W 586 "Dirty Harry", 10 shots as fast as you can pull the trigger in double action mode, coincidentally I've got a nice one for sale . No wasted gas on blowback and accurate.
    Too pricey ? How about an 80 Crosman 357 / Vigilante ? Lots of fun per . Don't discount revolvers !
    If you want auto blowback, the KWC 1911 in its various guises puts a smile on everyone's face, the major advantage of these guns for me is that the CO2 mechanism is in the magazine, so if it breaks get a new mag not a new gun ! Baby Makarov, seen one not fired it supposed to be good too.

    OP says his wife has light build and small hands so the S&W 586 probably not suitable. I had one of these and certainly accurate but a real 'handful' so I sold it.
    FAS 604, Remington 1911, Colt SAA, HW45, BSA Mercury, Winchester underlever (Walther).

    It's a shame there isn't a J-frame sized airpistol. The 586 is Umarexes best multishot pelletgun though IMO, if you can get on with the grip.

    Yeah, it needs to be something small and manageable. I was looking at the Beretta PX4 storm last night, that sort of size max, would probably suit.

    I bought the wife a walther CP99 Special Agent, it is small and light and a good fit in her hands. She thinks it's the dogs bollocks.
