Things I liked:Nice heft and feel, about right for a service piece, good practice weapon. Trigger pull is well balanced, releases crisply and as expected. Sight adjusted well, was able to get within palm-sized spacing at 10 meters without difficultly free-standing. Operation was simple and manual gave full break-down of weapon for field-stripping/parts replacement. Case was very nice (could have used a locking hasp though). Things I would have changed:Gun fits loosely in case, corrected by stuffing in cleaning rag, but would expect to be custom fitted to preclude shifting. Gun itself seems very nice for what it is, hits hard, well made, solid metal throughout, expect many years of enjoyment out of it. What others should know:Be carefull to fully secure barrel after cocking/loading, had come un-secured after firing a shot - once I noticed the problem, I ensure that it was well set after loading and had no further problems. From other comments, noticed issue with cocking effort - this is my first air pistol, but did not seem that difficult (I am an adult male, it may be a bit difficlut for kids/women, but definitely doable, especially if following directions in manual).
