Things I liked:I own this pistol. It is one of the first guns I bought when first getting into Airsoft, before buying gas blowbacks and AEGs. It's a great bargain. What others should know:My Tanfoglio likes brand new BBs. Unlike my springer 1911s and 92F, it jams regularly if I try to re-use sticky target rounds. Also, mine shoots quite a bit over the point-of-aim at 15' (I haven't used it for anything but indoor target practice).
Things I liked:Definitely cute. Trigger pull is long but smooth. Fun little gun. Things I would have changed:Quality could be better. The 2nd mag it came with was very rough to close and eject, although with use it seems to be smoothing out. And is it only me but does the direction you have to push the mag release seem to be opposite from the real gun? Tiny little front "sight" at end of sighting groove is difficult to see on my clear model...perhaps a dab of paint? What others should know:Definitely recommend you use .2 g BBs for best accuracy. Sighting radius is 4 1/4". Might want to use a glove if you plan t o use this for any extended length of time, as the constant racking of the slide hurts the web of my hand holding the gun. I originally bought this thinking it would be good for my small granddaughter, since the fps was low I thought the energy required to cock it would also be low...wrong. It's as hard to cock as any of my full-size springers. I loaded 16 BBs with no trouble into the 15 shot mag, but then it refused to snap fully into the gun. If you drop a single BB into the mag well and rack the slide (with the gun upside down), then insert the mag, you have 16 shots. After reading other posts here about the danger to its finish by cocking the gun with the safety on, I just leave mine off all the time; of course, I also don't normally carry it cocked and loaded in my boot or pocket. Just for fun, if you put the safety on the position halfway between on and off and either pull the trigger or cock it, the safety slides to the off position by itself.
