Things I liked:This gun is easily concealed in a deep pocket, feels nicely weighted, and packs a wallop with a 15 round clip. I also like the sliding gas door. Friends have learned to run like heck when they hear the "sss... snap!" as they know I loaded a cylinder. I've yet to run less than 8 clips through per cylinder and it makes a great backup in normal situations. If you are a fan of pistol wars: Get this! You will not be disappointed. Using .20 gram BB's, though, is the best thing to do. Otherwise, well, you're not as accurate and you will not get the 400 FPS you want anyway. Things I would have changed:I'd give this gun a touch better sighting (I fight down dark hallways [yes, I fight indoor wars] and have a hard time with the white dot), maybe 5 rounds more on the clip, a longer barrel & tactical rail assembly for things like a good tac-light (best way to defend in darkness: pulse your tac-light). I would also have made this gun just a little heavier. Also, the door needs to have a better forward-lock and reverse lock. I've pulled it off at least 10 times during battle. The trigger could have a shorter pull and the safety switch needs a lot of work. What others should know:Buy more clips and you will be happy. Also, this gun has a semi-heavy trigger pull with classic M9 pull length. AKA: a very long pull. The release button for the clip is very nice and out of the way, but the safety switch is a little tricky to master with one finger on the field. Don't try to equip things to the tac-rail below the barrel because nothing looks right on this gun. If you shoot with a slight pause in your triggering, you can get 8 clips from this gun on one cylinder, and I've gotten a lot more (my current record is 13 clips on one single CO2 cylinder, shooting .20 bb's with the full 15 rounds per clip). This is a great gun for pistol wars, and an excellent, gas-efficient backup gun. If you buy this gun for a backup, you will not be disappointed at all. Yet, it will not hit the 400 FPS, even if you try.
Things I liked:It's a great sidearm for pistol wars. My usual primary is a C11, so that's obviously my base. But, a SIG Sauer 226 can be just as frightening when aimed at your head as a C11. The reason: decent FPS plus a very accurate sighting system usually equals a fair shot. The hammer adds realism and lets you know when, say, you've racked the slide and holstered it with one in the chamber. Also, the trigger is nice and sensitive. The safety within reach of the thumb is nice. Things I would have changed:The clip release button either needs to be moved or have a much stiffer spring in it. You sneeze on it, your clip, and half your ammo, is across the room. Also, the clips really need changing. Try to speed-load a clip and watch one slip spew your supply across a room. Great when every hit counts, regardless of FPS or location (clip = poor man's landmine), but not fun when attempting to load it with ammo. Also, a slide lock when out of bullets would be nice. With its 12 round capacity, well, sometimes it brings you back to Dirty Harry with the, "I know what you're thinking: Did he fire 6 shots, or only 5" line, except it's now, "Did I fire 12 shots, or just 11?" And when every shot counts, and you get stuck in a quick-draw, you really don't want to be stuck with no ammo left. It also needs more weight. What others should know:This gun disassembles into 2 halves easily for re-lubrication. Also, it's just about impossible to jam this thing up. I mean impossible. With 12 rounds, it's a good sidearm. Not a main, but a sidearm. Springer wars, this could work for a main, but I would recommend something with a handful more shots in the clip. The grip is nice in your hand, but the gun is a little light for those of us used to heavy guns. The safety is nice, but common sense should eliminate need for it. The clip release is too sensitive, and those who are left-handed (not me, but someone I know has one of these and is lefty) will not want this gun.
Things I liked:Well, first and foremost, one would have to know I really like revolvers. This one I like for 2 reasons: one, it was a birthday gift, and two, my friends and I have a lot of revolver wars. This gun is accurate as long as you don't use the double action. It hits fairly hard. has a nice, smooth hammer pull, a realistic design, and is stronger than the springer I'd been using, by, well, a lot. Things I would have changed:I personally do not like the sights on this gun. My rear sight is crooked. Doesn't ruin the aim, but it's an aesthetic thing to me. I would also rather it use inexpensive CO2 cylinders and not propane. I hate the smell of propane. Last, but not least, I would want it in nearly-full metal. I don't care about things like the handle being plastic, but give me a nice metal gun. Another aesthetic thing I don't like right now, is the gap between hammer and gun is quite large. What others should know:First, this is realistic: it has 6 rounds. Don't buy a revolver, then complain that the round capacity is terrible. Revolvers don't have much for capacity. Second, you'll need propane or green gas to fire it. The major internal mechanisms are all metal, but the most of the gun is plastic. I also had to re-glue my front sight down, but that was my fault. I mentioned it to let you know it's a separate piece of plastic. The grip will also fit large hands with plenty of room to spare, and the 6 shells can be removed to load, or loaded while still in the gun. Personally, I'd say leave them in the gun unless you have a lot of money to spend on little plastic shells. You, like me, will probably dump them out like in the movies, at least once.
