Things I liked:Included in the box:
Xenon bulb - more pure white in color than an LED bulb
Focus spot reflector
2 x CR123A 3V Lithium 1300mAh batteries (included!)
Small tool to unscrew bulb from socket
Tail cap on/off switch
Black aluminum exterior
Diamond textured housing
Optional (extra cost) extras:
-flashlight mount for weaver and picatinny rails
-short flashlight cord switch - for grip activation about 60cm in length.
-long flashlight cord switch - for grip activiation, 50-100cm max length
The cord switches can be for left or right hand use.
This (tactical) light is small, fitting nicely in the palm of the hand. It's light and sturdy enough for camp use, when you need something a little more personal. Held in a certain way, this could also be used a personal defence weapon in certain circumstances.
Also good for the toolbox/glovebox or as a useful tool in the gun cleaning kit.
Not that brilliant to really disorientate someone, as say would 200 +lumens, but if the right dark conditions were there, enough to momentarily dazzle ... to get your shot off during indoors CQB.
Great value package! Things I would have changed:Nothing. Really. What others should know:The flashlight mount is a single 2 piece tubular mount. Doesn't take up that much space on a picatinny\weaver rail. Looks very good on either a JG G36C, an ICS MP5A5, or a Steyr AUG2. Not entirely out of place when mounted to a pistol either - as in a Walther CP99 or CP99 Compact. Just note that it does need a weaver\picatinny rail.
Things I liked:This is a great backyard target practice shooter. Teach your kids how to safely handle, load and use a gun. This does have the larger frame so small hands would have a problem holding the gun; better for 14 years or older?
Out of the box, using Crosman .12g Premium Ammo (seamless), the chrono average was 175 fps, .51 joules. A teeny bit bit of silicon lube and a clean of the barrel and averages went to 185 fps and .54 joules.
Not bad at all for a backyard target practice.
I wouldn't use this for skirmishing as a primary or secondary; it's just to slow to reload, even with extra shells. I would be a last ditch resort, but you have just 6 bb's so make them count!
Gun is all plastic, don't expect anything more. The extra 2 shells that come in the box are for spares and just as well in case you drop a shell or two in the grass and can't find these again!
Feels good to hold and acquires a target easily enough; 25 feet 6" groupings for me. You might do better! The occasional bb will curve left or right and one did fly up.
Ge t this if only for the fun of a backyard target competition ... the price sure is right! Things I would have changed:Nothing; for the price it is just right for target shooting. What others should know:What's in the box?
You get the airsoft gun, a bag of sample bb's, 8 shells (two are spares), two paper targets, instructions sheet.
Buy extra ammo - Pyramyd Air has it. Get some .12g bio degradeable bb's.
Do not use .20g or higher, that will damage the gun.
Things I liked:A nice CO2 blowback DAO 6mm BB. Great as a secondary. Good feel in the hand and not too weighty. Metal barrel, metal slide and the double action, makes this Walther airsoft gun look and feel more authentic.
So far, the chrono results have this gun shooting at under 330 fps with .20 BB's (often an indoors CQB limit). Nice crisp blowack action; safety and slide catch easy to get used to; the magazine drop around the trigger guard is quick and easy to use.
Out of the box, check the action, safety on, load up the mag and insert a CO2 capsule with a drop of pellgun oil (check for leaks); 10 rounds through the chrono averaged at 320 fps. The fps does lower as the CO2 gas reduces in the capsule. There is no sign of cold freeze during operation as of yet.
One CO2 capsule is good for about 6-7 magazines, so it's working well.
The metal barrel will likely need a few rounds through it to bed in. And some silicone oil spray now and then down the barrel.
Three inch grouping at 50 feet with .25g seamless BB; nice sights (non adjustable).
I ordered this with the optional laser sight and it's a nice add-on, a snug fit and simple operation. Reminder that a laser can give away your position ...
I se this as a secondary during CQB or field; I wouldn't use this as a primary CQB due to the magazine round (15+1) limitation. Things I would have changed:The gun itself - not much.
Rails for additional optical/add-ons would be nice, but not in thinking, not practical in this case for CQB.
A holster would be nice; this gun fits nicely into the crosss draw vest (also sold by Pyramyd Air) and there is a host of other holdter options - I use a BlackHawk SERPA to ensure that it's locked in place as I run around. What others should know:What's in the box? Well it's more a plastic sealed package. You get the gun, a 15+1 round magazine, a sample packet of BB's (dont use these!), manual and registration card (or register online). Doesn't include a CO2 capsule, be sure to include Crosman CO2 capsules with your order, plus an additional magazine or two (I order one extra) and .20/.25 ammo (I ordered TSD Tactical bio's); get some pellgun oil and silicone spray for reliability - Pyramyd Air has it all!
