By Shooter from USA on 2010-03-08 15:40:38Things I liked:This model of Beretta's line of pellet guns is extremely realistic. The gun is very heavy and well made with mostly all metal working parts. The original compensator that comes with the XX-Treme is plastic but can be easily removed and optionally replaced with a Beretta 2" metal compensator that reduces more sound and looks GREAT. This model can be accurate with the stock red dot scope attached when it is adjusted properly at about 10 meters. I get at least 9 rotery clips of accurate slow fire before the C02 starts reducing power. The C02 is easily loaded and seals every time by shutting the magazine cover lever.
Things I would have changed:The double action trigger pull is long and heavy that requires a large hand and strong finger pull.
What others should know:I personally think this gun is very awesome for an experienced shooter. I removed the stock red dot sight and replaced it with a BSA 2X20 magnification scope and attached a Walther flashlight/laser to the bottom weaver rail. Once the BSA scope was dialed in, the laser was easy to zero out with the scopes crosshairs. The problem with the original red dot sight at 10 meters, is that the dot light is too large. The illuminated red dot is bright but covers the size of a quarter and is difficult to get a consistent shot pattern within an inch at 10 meters. This gun is so heavy that I found shooting it from a sitting or prone position increases not only accuracy but comfort.

By Hogie from USA on 2012-01-24 16:37:13Things I liked:Well made. I was really impressed at first, but no matter what I did I was unable to get the red dot sight to adjust properly.I returned it and got the Exocet Alecto multi-pump.
Things I would have changed:The sight.
What others should know:The xtra mags are a necessity . I would get the gun without sights and install my qwn optics of choice.
