Things I liked:The exact size as a real 1911 handgun so it fits my holsters perfectly, making it great for draw practice. Gets about 50 shots per CO2 on a cold 30 degree day, with tin can penetrating power on all but the last few. Things I would have changed:The removable grip/CO2 cartridge cover seems a little flimsy, so you have to be careful not to break off the plastic tabs when using it. What others should know:A good value for $30, nicer than guns that cost more, made in Japan not China. Accuracy is actually pretty good for a short barrel BB pistol.
