Things I liked:excellent build quality, i've been using mine for about 6 or 7 years, it was my first airsoft pistol, the spring is strong and this pistol has some power to it with .12g bb's. excellent full licensing . Things I would have changed:more metal/weight, and more metal parts in the mag, the tab that releases the follower when you load the mag has broken, so the follower has to be released manually after filling the mag. What others should know:this is a great replica of a beretta 92 9mm. it would be great for holster/aim drills even reloading drills. i would not recommend this for a child under 12 as the gun is difficult to cock, especially after a few years of use.
