Things I liked:Accurate (for a pistol), good weight and balance, powerful (especially w/ a fresh CO2 cartridge), realistic. What more can you ask? I get about 80-90 shots per cartridge, altho by the end, pellets are sort of dropping out of the end of the barrel. I put a Walther laser sight on the bottom front of the barrel, which seems to have done nothing to affect the balance of the pistol, but improves my accuracy a lot. Also, trigger action is very light in SA, altho DA requires a more deliberate pull. Ability to decock is very welcome. Putting in new CO2 cartridges is also very easy. I've put around 500 pellets thru my Walther, with one jam -- which was a defective pellet. I don't expect any future problems, as long as I use the right pellets (I've been using Crosman Destroyers and Gamo wadcutter, both of which the gun likes) and as long as I put a drop of oil on every other CO2 cartidge. Things I would have changed:Get rid of the white labels on either side of the barrel and slide. Increase the number of pellets in the pellet clip above the current 8. What others should know:This is an almost exact replica of a Walther P99. I would be very careful taking it out in public and waving it around, as you are certain to be either arrested or shot! Like the package says, the CP99 is not a toy and doesn't look like one, either!
Things I liked:Extremely accurate. At 15 yards, 15 shots inside ~3/4", with 2 outliers. Almost boring, it's so good! Things I would have changed:Stock arrived with a big crack; basically, it was in two pieces. Crosman replaced it, no questions asked in less than a week (although the 2nd one was hard to fit). What others should know:If you clean the barrel, then take about 30 shots as you center the scope (easy to do if you're as sloppy about it as me), this will be an extremely accurate & fun rifle.
Things I liked:Very solid build. Very accurate when zeroed in with a good scope. It's a bit sensitive to which pellets I use, with some tumbling and others just consistently accurate. This may settle down after I've put more lead down the barrel. After putting a good scope, I was getting quarter sized groups at 50'. Also, the ATAC is not that sensitive to holds (artillery hold will work, but it seemed just as accurate with a death grip with my bracing hand). Looks very cool. Things I would have changed:The trigger is a bit of a long pull and it could be a lighter touch. The included scope was not functional; with every shot, the reticle element rotated a bit counterclockwise. I replaced it with a Hawke, which seems to be performing well. This is heavy gun and not the best for plinking if you factor in the the required cocking. What others should know:I would buy this rifle again, easily (altho the scope is not up to the same standards). With the right scope, it's a great gun. It's almost a spitting image of the Sako sniper rifle, made by a sister company within the Beretta family.
