Things I liked:Blowback! Metal construction. Replica -- same size, shape, etc as a cartridge firing PPK/S... this is an actual Walther. Things I would have changed:If the magazine could be made of metal instead of flimsy plastic that would be a huge bonus. Also, if the safety worked like the one on the firearm. What others should know:This pistol is pure FUN. If you are looking for pin point target range accuracy, look elsewhere... or buy a rifle! But for good ol' fashioned tin can plinking fun, it doesn't get much better than this. The accuracy is not the greatest, HOWEVER, this is a 3 inch barrel. Not many firearms with 3" barrels are accurate, either. For a target I usually set up a 10" styrofoam plate (you know, like the ones at cookouts, picnics and such) on a cardboard box stuffed with newspaper as a backstop. From 30 feet I can get most if not all shots into this 10" area. The bb's punch a nice hole in the styrofoam (better than paper plates). Or I shoot at empty beer and soda cans.
Things I liked:Blowback, realism Things I would have changed:Not much! What others should know:The review below states that the slide does not move completely rearward during the firing cycle. This is simply not true. For proof that you can SEE watch the video of this gun here on Pyramid. You can see the slide extend FULLY REARWARD during the firing cycle, just like a real gun does. You can even pause the video, or use your mouse to scroll through the video in slow motion. The video does not lie. It is true that the slide locks a bit forward of where a real gun does when the clip is empty, but this is NOT because the slide isn't cycling fully to the rear. It is just a design difference between the CO2 version and "real steel" version. Wather's CO2 BB firing PPK/S acts the same way. The slide cycles fully to the rear during firing, but does lock forward a bit after the clip is empty. There are numerous videos available on the internet that confirm this as well.
