Things I liked:I have had this pistol in 22 cal for two weeks now. It's my first air pistol. I shoot 22 and 45 cal firearm pistols and enjoy doing that as often as I can, not always location friendly thing to do in Illinois. This state is not gun friendly!
I bought this pistol because it would allow me to shoot lot more target, seemed to be very high quality and resembled a tradition pistol as far as feel in the hand.
To put it mildly, I love this pistol! It feels great, shoots more accuratly than I could ever want and can even shoot inside into a 22 cal bullet trap.
Multi pump is great, easy to pump,third pump not as bad as some reviews indicate and I am no powerhouse. Plenty good on pumps 1-2. Tomatoes left in the backyard garden were talking smack about my moma, I blew them away with hollow point 22 cal pellet.
Weight is great, if it were all cast, machined steel it would weigh too much. The composite plastic is tough as nails and a perfect application. That knowlage comes from 20 years of Plastics Engineering background. Things I would have changed:1. It's a little loud on 2-3 pumps, no problem though.
2. A little costly, you do get what you pay for in this pistol.
3. Hate the grip butt attachment, I don't get it. I took it off in the first 5 minutes and caused no further problems. What others should know:Check out the Pyramid airgun cleaning vids. I learned that airguns are much different than firearms in a good way.
Buy this pistol if you want a very quality made product, want to shoot almost anywhere with plenty of muzzel velocity. I put a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot scope with a 1/2" riser to get over the front site. Very nice to use and look at.
This review is based on short term ownership and 2500-3000 pellets shot, I had some time to shoot last week.
Hope this review helps.
