Things I liked: I absolutely loved the feel of this pistol ! The sights are great too. Pellets seem to cycle flawlessly.
Things I would have changed: the advertising. The 25 cal. at p1 I received in no way should be considered to have enough power to kill the smallest of rodents. let alone be advertised with "hunting power" right out of the box ,i put in 2700 lbs. at 25 ft. the first pellet barely even stuck to a 2x4.at 5 feet the front of the pellet went in the 2x4 yet still did not embed all the way. i was shooting the Exact king diablo 25 gr. pellets. i too was not impressed with the case. mine was scuffed up a bit. mabey due to shipping.nothing much to worry about,
What others should know: After calling pyramid air they were ready to exchange this pistol for another. however they are currently out of stock so i will be getting the evanix 22 cal. it seems to have great reviews. after reading the above reviews i do think i probably just got a "bad one" another point to add about my lemon is i would have rated the noise level at a 2. mine was not loud at all. i do advise everybody to spend the extra couple of bucks and have the 10 for 10 done. it takes an extra day to get your gun but in the long run should be worth the wait.
Things I liked: This pistol feels great in the hand.Cycles with no troubles.Wood is flawless,Obviously hand selected.Bluing is awesome as well.
Things I would have changed: To agree with everybody else this pistol needs iron sights.600.00 for a airgun without sights is a bit high.This pistol does not "kick", all that extra wood on the bottom of the grip is unneeded.
What others should know: This pistol is great.However, it is not as great as most distibutors are advertising.It will not shoot 1000 fps. Mine shoots the 11.9 gr. at 855 fps.There are no sights so I gave this gem a rating of 1 on accuracy. Just how acurate can a pistol be with out sights?I gave it a rating of 2 for value for the money on the grounds of paying 10.00 for 10 shots with the same pellets that were advertised to travel 922 fps. and getting a print out showing 855 fps.(niether coming close to the 1000 fps advertised)I gave an overall rating of a 3 becouse it is one pretty gun.It feels good to hold.Feels/looks like it will last.My hoest opinion is at 3000 psi you have 2 kill shots with this pistol.(dont expect anymore)Would I recomend this to a friend? Already have.Though I feel the advertising is way exagerated,it is a great pellet pistol.And for anybody shopping it blows the Hatson atp1 25 caliber away.If you have 600.00 needing to be spent,this air pistol should be considered.One more thing to note is this pistols noise rating in no way should be a 5. More like a 2 1/2. No ear protection required.I would furter say it is backyard friendly.If your niabors claim to have a problem with you shooting this in your backyard ,I promise they simply just have a problem with you.I hope my honest review has helped,and not offended anybody.
