Things I liked:This is it! the pellet version is so much better and far more accurate. I also have the real thing! but this one is more fun. Things I would have changed:the grips and perhaps a bit better paint-job, tends to flake a bit with wear. What others should know:Its not a toy! give it the respect it deserves, same as if it was a real firearm. Both can be very damaging in the wrong hands.
Things I liked:I also have the live-fire 656 and if it wasnt for the black little cylinder there is no way of telling the difference. The built quality is amazing, best one of all. Accuracy is second to none. All in all its an amazing hand-gun. Things I would have changed:People that are prepared to spend this much on a co2 gun would also pay the extras for a proper swing-out magazin ( same as Dan Wesson) or at least make the cylinder in the same color. proper rubber grips or Houge grips. What others should know:the little seals wear out with time put a small oil slick when loading the little cannister.
Treat this gun with the same respect as the real one. It deserves it.
