Things I liked:Very high quality and very well made. Solid gun and very accurate. Not really all that hard to pump, but harder than 1377. Things I would have changed:The only thing I would change would be a better rear sight. I gave up adjusting the windage and mounted a NcStar dovetail mount holo sight. Works perfectly!!
Things I liked:Very well built; solid
good power Things I would have changed:little thicker front site What others should know:Very loud!! Your neighbors will think you're shooting a 22 in your backyard! Nice handling gun, at least 35 full-power shots. Personally, I like the 2 stage trigger. The pull feels light to me. This has become my favorite air gun by far. Get one while you can!!!
Things I liked:Typically well made by IZH. Operates smoothly, very easy to cock. Excellent trigger. I would say accuracy maybe one step below match pistols---but still surprisingly good. I have 10 air pistols, Sheridan, Crosman, Umarex, Baikal MP654K......the 53M is the most accurate of them all by a fair margin. I am getting good groups at up to 20 yards. Pretty fair velocity also. Very comfortable grip and very nice weight balance, at least for me. Great sights too--mine doesn't shoot high like some other reviews. Things I would have changed:Maybe a little more velocity and definitely a .22 model! I suppose also, the scope dovetail should be longer for more flexibility in mounting dots/scopes, but really this is the first pistol I own where I am not anxious to change the sights. What others should know:Great gun for a great price.
