Things I liked:the gun fits well in the hand,no cycling problems,easy to use and absolutely beats the price of the smith and wesson 686(which you could probably buy a small firearm for) and has higher velocity and shots per co2 so in my opinion go for the 357. Things I would have changed:trigger pull is a little bit bumpy if used in double action but best accuracy can be achieved with single action and a red dot scope. What others should know:be sure to use pointed or wadcutter pellets for best results,use pelligun oil on EVERY co2 canister to help break the seal and increase your guns lifespan.loses accuracy with an old co2(as every co2 gun will)
Things I liked:i really LOVE this gun is is small but packs a punch,is very accurate and there are tons of mods available i have a crosman 1399 stock installed on mine and have the 459mt intermounts on the way.the trigger on this gun is smooth single action and is the same as the 1 on the crosman silhouette which is 7 times the price. Things I would have changed:steel sights instead of plastic ones.the second day i had this gun the screw on the sight stripped the original threads because it is a self tapping screw so be sure to take care when adjusting the sights.(i am talking about the small screw on the rear sight) What others should know:very good gun will recommend that you dont use napier power pellet lube on cleaning pellets in the barrel as it sprays a grey residue out the barrel and interferes with accuracy but if the right amount of lube is applied to ordinary pellets the results are good.
