Things I liked: All metal, including trigger, trigger guard, and hammer. The part that pierce the CO2 is way better than Crosman. The CO2 drops out easily. Shoots 9 clips on one CO2. Smooth trigger, love the single stage. I love how the CO2 knob is spring loaded to turn flat when not needed. I like that the slide safety is plastic to not to rub the metal frame too much and since it's the part that sticks out the most, it will not get scratch when laying on that side. Love the attention to details of this gun. Also, the lanyard loop on the grip is metal. Quality gun.

Things I would have changed: Make the trigger less spongy feel, this is just me being picky.

What others should know: Here's a solution to the loose grip problem. I taped a piece of black electrical tape between the frame and the grip. The elasticity of the tape bites on to the inside of the grip as I hold the gun. To remove the slight back and forth slop, first removed the grip completely. Then I used 2 strips of blue painters tape on the back of the frame. Now the grip feels like it's bolted on. I then lift the lightly to free it from the tape before sliding the grip back to replace the CO2. Finally, if your slide rattles, remove the slide and turn the spring around. Umarex should make a nice presentation box for this gun.

Things I liked: The trigger is very smooth, but there is travel in the second stage before it fires. Feels like I am shooting a pcp pistol with the sharp snap of the air leaving the gun.

Things I would have changed: I bought two of these and both have the same long 2nd stage travel. The grip is a little long for medium size hands like mine, I will have to make a palm shelf to make the gun feel better. I had to stipple my grip to reduce the slippery feel of the smooth plastic.

What others should know: Through lots of trials, I was able to grind down the correct parts in the seer so I now have a crisp 2nd stage trigger. I will buy more of this gun, modify the trigger and use them as amazing target and camping guns.

Things I liked: The side cocking lever and quality plastic. Very relaxing to cock and shoot while watching TV. This is the gun to have if you want to shoot reliably and quickly. All you have to do is cock handle, shoot, cock handle, shoot, etc. No need to index a pellet like the Daisy 953. I love this feature.

Things I would have changed: The grip to trigger pull is too short, I had to add thick rubber pad to make it feel longer.

What others should know: My gun was not accurate at all like others here. I stopped shooting this gun when I bought the Daisy 953, which is much more accurate but harder to pump and rack the pellet. I had this gun for 3 years and didn't know what I was missing out on.
