Things I liked: I've had to return my first purchase of this airsoft pistol. It was inoperable right out of the package, though no fault of Pyramid Air. Regardless, the Crosman P70 does have a fine, ergonomic fit in one's hand. It's lightweight, practical, and requires only 4AAA batteries to fuel its powerplant. I hope to have better luck with my replacement P70 air-pistol.
Things I would have changed: Remove the 'blowback' feature on this airsoft gun. While this property serves to mimic the firing action of real pistols, it simply employs more mechanical parts that may ultimately go awry and increases overall pistol energy consumption. Increased the fps speed of this airsoft weapon... 200 to 250 fps would be adequate. Perhaps an upgraded version of the P70 with a higher fps would suffice. Still, for those looking to do only proverbial 'backyard' skirmishes with little to no body protection, the present P70's 175 fps should be more than adequate for a fun afternoon romp.
What others should know: Again, my first P70 was inoperable right from the packaging. I spoke with Pyramid Air's customer service department the next day. The were both friendly and responsive. A replacement P70 is promptly being issued with no added cost to myself. In my situation, Pyramid Air has been true to it's 30 day return policy. I plan on returning to Pyramid Air with my future purchases.
