Things I liked:The beretta is a very sturdy gun, especially for its price range, and has very few weak points as far as general construction is concerned. Also, the beretta is extremely easy to use and has no particularly special needs. Things I would have changed:RAISED SIGHTS: This is definitely one gun that would benefit from M16-type sights in that beretta's sights were made too close to the barrel to accomodate the mock red-dot sight. As such, using the open sights is very difficult as they do not allign easily with the eye.
OVER-SENSATIVE CLIP: The clip has its release button on the edge of the unit rather than more toward the center. Consequently, it is easy to accidently discharge some of the rounds prematurely while placing the clip in the grip. This clip definitely needs to be "tipped" when placing it in the gun (as if you were pouring something into the grip, not straight down).
EXCESS EXTRAS: The mock red-dot sight, silencer, strap, and foregrip are virtually useless. They look kinda nice, but serious airsofters are not going to like them.
SAFETY: The safety is a little too easy to trip.
TRIGGER: The trigger is fairly weak and easily damaged compared to rest of gun.
GRIP WIDTH: The grip is very wide and a little hard to get used to.
Things I liked:Has a cool feel and unique look/operation. Ejectable cartridges always make a gun more interesting. Things I would have changed:Gun is fairly weak, magazine door is substandard with regard to quality, and the joint between the extendable stock and handle is subject to fracture if used for extended play. What others should know:Good first gun, but not apt to last much longer than the season.
Things I liked:Tough, dependable. Things I would have changed:A higher gear ratio woulb be appreciated to make winding it up easier, but such is par for the course concerning high-cap magazines. What others should know:Fully interchangable with the TF7 and still sturdy and relaible.
