Things I liked:The look, feel and heft is very real - would never know it wasn't a real gun on first pick up. Things I would have changed:The cocking mechanism is way to hard. It took all my strength to cock it and I tore some skin off my hand when my fingers slipped once. I lift weights so am not a weakling!
Also, it absolutely will not hit a quarter at 25 ft, not even a one foot dia circle all the time. Can see pellets darting to the left once in a while - not even close.
The instructions are obviously written by the Chinese - very stilted and incomplete and poor pictures, hard to understand. What others should know:I may have received a bad gun based on all the good reviews.
