Things I liked:Balance, weight and feel is very close to the my SP2022 .40SW. Accuracy is good. Fun to shoot and a CO2 cartridge will last an acceptable time. Rail system below the barrel is nice for practicing witha laser sight. Things I would have changed:Make the sights exactly match the real thing (i.e. add the white dots to the back sight). Offer extra mags for sale and create an auto loader like the Crosman auto loader I have for my Makarov. What others should know:If you want an air gun that lets you keep up your shooting chops between trips to the range, this pistol will do the trick. Great fun to shoot!
