Things I liked:Good build quality, slide and SA hammer were very smooth and precise-feeling, right out of the box. Trigger is also really nice for such an 'inexpensive' pistol- smooth and predictable. Surprisingly accurate for a low power smooth bore BB pistol, at least out to 30 feet or so that I've tested so far. Getting around 100 rounds per CO2 cartridge in 75 degree ambient temps. Things I would have changed:Slide isn't really "silver" and it's not plated- just painted. Description should state this. Safety functions OK, but is klunky moving from S to F, maybe it will smooth out with use. Handle plastic magazines with care as look fairly fragile. What others should know:This little gun is great fun to shoot! Buy extra 3-pak of BB magazines- this gun loves to be rapid fired, and you'll like having spare 15-rd magazines handy.
Blowback-induced recoil is only slightly lighter than a similar size and weight 22 cal LR pistol, so this should be a good trainer.
