Things I liked:The combination of its all-metal build quality coupled with excellent accuracy (1" groups hand held at 25') and pretty good shot count (at least 50 constant velocity shots) on a CO2 cylinder. This gun has the weight and feel of the S&W .357 Magnum. Things I would have changed:A lower price would be nice as would one more extra mag packaged with the gun. What others should know:The S&W 586 is a much better shooter than my Beretta 92 FS replica. I also have owned the Crosman 357W . This shoots a bit better and doesn't have the plastic components that make the Crosman feel a bit like a toy. Shoots pretty much any pellet I tried in it well but seems to like RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol the best.
