Things I liked: Being that I am a Marine, and an avid gun nut, I love the overall sturdiness, and rugged feel of this weapon. There is nothing worse than buying something that feels like it should have "Playskool" written on the side.
Things I would have changed: I see absolutely no reason to rifle a BB gun. I have several high powered pellet guns that have rifling, and they need it. A psuedo fully atomatic BB gun does not need rifling. They should have decreased the diameter a few hundred thousands of an inch to take up the "slack" between the BB and the sides of the barrel. I HATE the low capacity of the mag. I HATE the fact that after 60 rnds, you have to change the CO2 cartirdge or suffer HUGE power and range losses.
What others should know: I would have loved to purchase the Drozd and the Steel Storm to give a good review on the top dog multi shot BB guns available now. I will be buying te Steel Storm, but after the $300 for the Drozd, 100 CO2 cartridges, BB's, and 1.6V rechargeable batteries (yes they DO make them!!!), I will have to wait a little while before I am ready to drop another 80 bucks for the Steel Storm. Overall, you will like this weapon. It is a lot of fun; just make sure you buy alot of CO2 - I am fabricating my own CO2 "dummy" cartridge to hook to a 20oz paintball canister. I am not making it to sell it, just for personal use.
Things I liked: Nothing
Things I would have changed: Everything
What others should know: Not very accurate. I bought these, Crosman Destroyers, and Crosman Premiers (which I have shot for years) at the same time from Pyramid Air. I setup a target 35-40 yds down range and started grouping. The Destroyers (full review under Destroyers) and the Beretta's had the same overall shot grouping of 3 rounds - about 2.5". The cheaper Crosman Premiers (HP) are capable of being shot into the same exact hole time after time. For the Price of these Baretta's, one could buy 1500 Crosman premiers. I really wanted to make sure that my figures were correct so I set up all the targets using fresh paper rings and the results were the same. My rifle is a 1000fps breakbarrel.
