Things I liked:This gun showns good quality for a spring pistol and has excellent accuracy at closer ranges. The mag doesn't require a speedloader to reload and when cocked, the hammer goes back, adding a realisitic touch. Would work very well as a sidearm. Things I would have changed:I found the major flaw to be the magazine, since you have to hold back a lever in order to insert bbs. The whole mag later broke, rendering the gun useless since no other mags can be purchased. The price is a little high for a spring pistol. What others should know:Use .2 gram bbs or above for best accuracy. Not a bad gun for beginners. Hope this helped!
