Things I liked:I really liked the realism of this particular gun. The weight is realistic to a Glock, the over-all appearance is easily mistaken for a Glock 17, and the blowback is really smooth and realistic. It is a dead-ringer for the actual firearm! Shoots powerful and the accuracy is pretty decent for a CO2 bb gun at this price! I love my SA117 Things I would have changed:I would change three things: first off, the safety switch. It is really hard to use and sometimes only sticks in half way. And secondly, the front fiber-optic sight. It sticks out alittle too far; like it seems like the manufacture skipped out on trimming the fiber optic piece to size. And lastly, the attatchments rail at the bottom. I do not use any lasers or flashlights so for me atleast, the rail is pointless and in my opinion takes away from the look. What others should know:This is as great gun and definately worth the money. However, be sure to get an extra magazine and good quality BB's because sometimes; atleast with Copperhead BB's, when you load the magazine and release the spring, they just shoot right out of the magazine or stick out too far and prevent the mag to be loaded into the pistol.
