Things I liked:Very nice looking handgun. Seems to have alot of quality and heft. Things I would have changed:The grip safety. "Umarex" has had a problem with it causing low co2 output and mis-fires. Sometimes it does not fire at all. This problem has been around for a long time. It's time for them to fix this problem or remove it from there offering. What others should know:I was reluctant to buy this handgun because of the negative reviews concerning the grip safety and because I also had a problem with this same model some years ago. Sure enough, the very first time I went to use the gun it did not work. The same thing happened several years ago. I would have thought by now they would have addressed the problem. I returned that one and received another one that did the same thing. I then returned it for a full refund. This most recent purchase has also been returned,but for an entirely different pistol. I guess as long as the manufacturer keeps selling this pistol they won't bother fixing the problem. LET THE BUYER BE WARE !!!
Things I liked:Very close attention in detail compared to the original.Have fired about 200 rounds through it so far. Seems to function without any problems. Things I would have changed:The color of the grips. Make them a darker brown! Also,the left side removable grip panel does not seem to fit in place too securely. I suspect that in time it will show problems in falling of the frame. Make the tabs that hold the grip panel in place out of flat spring steel instead of plastic. A second magazine would be nice. Make the grip safety,magazine and rear sight out of metal not plastic. What others should know:Overall this is a fun pistol to shoot. Could be a bit more accurate but it was never intended to be a serious target pistol. I get four magazines (64) shots out of a co2 cartridge.
Things I liked:Good quality. Look,feel and weight are just like the original. I own a 1911 A1 and bought this one to keep in pratice for when I go to the range. Accuracy is quite acceptable for this guns intended purpose. I was actually very pleased with the shot groups I was getting. This seems to be a quality made co2 pistol. Just wish it could shoot pellets insted of BB's. Things I would have changed:Not much. Wish the manufacturer would have included instructions on how to disassemble,clean amd oil.Only instructions accompaning this gun was how to load co2,BB's and how to fire it. What others should know:Take down is similar to a real 1911 except you don't need to remove the barrel bushing first before removing the slide. You start by aligning the slide stop and the notch in the slide, then you remove the slide stop. After that is done the slide and the complete barrel assembly can be removed from the frame,then the barrel bushing can be removed to further disassemble the gun. This gun is a real joy to shoot and own.
Things I liked:Great attention to detail. Looks,feels,weighs and operates like the original. Slide functions just like my real 1911 govt. model. I love this gun. Very well made. Quality shows through in all areas. Things I would have changed:Include instructions on how to take pistol apart for cleaning. Nothing on this procedure is mentioned at all in the instructions. What others should know:Good buy for the money. If you pay attention to the instructions, loading the magazine is not at all difficult. Take down is simslar to the real 1911 except that you remove the slide stop 1st before removing the barrel bushing. Suggest including Pyramyd Airs $10.00 function test on any gun that is bought.
Things I liked:Great looking pistol. Heavy and exudes quality. Things I would have changed:Correct problem with the relieable functioning of this pistol. I bought one several years ago and right out of the box it did not shoot at all. I bought another one recently thinking that by now Umarex would have resolved the problem. Not the case! I had to send this one back and I orderd a differant model of the 1911 by Tanfoglio. What others should know:Pryamyd Air is a great company to do bussiness with. They exchanged it right away with no problem. I STRONGLY recommend Purchesing (Pyramyd Airs $10.00 for Ten Shots) option on this pistol before purchasing. Good luck.
Things I liked:Awsome workmenship and finish. Very accurate and powerful Things I would have changed:Allow an easy access for oiling the spring for the pistion or at least show how to go about removing the stock in the instructions which is I've been told the only way to oil the spring. What others should know:Worth all the money.
Things I liked:Everything. Quality abounds concerning this rifle. Very accurate and powerful. Things I would have changed:Not a thing. What others should know:Use thread locker when mounting the scope. Also should use some on the barrel shroud and threaded end cap.
Things I liked:For the money you can't really do better. Well made and quite accurate. Wood stock and metal finish are pretty decent. Things I would have changed:The rifle does have barrel droop. The shim provided for the rear scope mount really does not do the trick. I had to make a better and thicker shim myself to offset this problem. What others should know:If using the scope just be prepared to construct a shim for the rear mount as the one supplied with the scope just doesn't cut it. The trigger is a little sticky on mine but have only fired about 200 shots through it and I expect it to smooth out after a good break in. Long story short; for the price you really can't go wrong. You will be happy with this rifle.
Things I liked:Everything. Overall quality is excellent. Accuracy is awesome! Things I would have changed:Put a rubber recoil pad on the stock instead of hard plastic. What others should know:You'll need thread locker for the barrel weight and muzzle cap as well as the scope mountings. But other then that there is no concerns.
Things I liked:Everything. Rifle exudes quality throughout. Finish of wood stock and bluing of barrel and receiver is very well done. Rifle is extremely accurate. Things I would have changed:Note a thing. What others should know:Buy this rifle. You won't be sorry.
Things I liked:Quality is very good. The wood stock is very acceptable on the finish work considering the rifles cost. Accuracy is on par with many more expensive rifles. I was pleasantly surprised with the shot groups I was getting. Things I would have changed:A droop compensating scope mount should have been supplied. The mfg. gives you a shimmed rear scope ring to try and compensate for this issue but it just doesn't do the trick. I had to make a thicker and more substantial shim for the scope in order to be able to adjust the scope enough to bring my shots on target. It now works just fine. What others should know:My rifle is in .22 cal. I'm very pleased with this purchase. The trigger is a little sticky but I expect it to smooth out with a proper break in period. You will be happy with this rifle. Ya can't really go wrong for the price.
Things I liked:For the money these pellets do very well. I group almost as well with these as I do the Meisterkugeln of the same caliber. Things I would have changed:Nothing. A great buy for the money.
Things I liked:Very nice workmanship on the stock and the rifle overall. Good accuracy and trigger is quite acceptable. Things I would have changed:The scope is junk in my opinion. Has no AO and is blurry at closer ranges. I put another scope on it. Just could not adjust the supplied scope to give a clear sight picture. What others should know:Don't try pushing a felt cleaning pellet through the bore with a cleaning rod as it will get stuck in the baffles of the silencer at the end of the barrel. CLEANING PELLETS MUST BE FIRED THROUGH THE BORE IN ORDER NOT TO BECOME TRAPPED IN THE BAFFLES.
Things I liked:Seems to have excellent quality for the price. Was able to zero it in with far less adjustment clicks for short ranges then other scopes I've had. Things I would have changed:Nothing,but have yet to let time with a springers recoil reveal the longevity test. What others should know:Love the multi colored reticle.
Things I liked:Feels good in the hand, I like the hard rubber grips. Very realistic in looks function and weight. Things I would have changed:Not much. Maybe a more positive lock up when closing the pellet cylinder. Haven't shot it a lot yet but so far have not had any problems. The grip is a little long. What others should know:It's a fun pistol to shoot and fairly accurate for a 4" barrel.I would recommend it to anyone.
