By JohnPaul from USA on 2011-04-25 00:06:40Things I liked:I really liked the weight to this gun. If your like me and like realism than this gun delivers. Once the fully loaded 15 round magazine is inside the gun it really has a nice heft to it. The plastic is very sturdy and doesn't feel cheap. Nothing rattling around. This gun look very nice in person, the Internet does no justice. The hop up is located on the top of the ejection port. Very easy to adjust for extra spin and power. One thing that I was surprised to see on a $20 springer was a fully adjustable rear sight. Both for windage and elevation. There is also a white dot on the font sight. I didn't find myself adjusting this pistol is straight shooter. It has a nice drop free magazine. It pops out nicely with a firm press on the mag release button. There is also an accessory rail underneath for a laser, which is always a good option. One thing that I personally liked was the fact that there is a working slide catch. Haven't found much use for it yet. But still it's good to have. The safety takes a firm push to engage but can be disengaged naturally and simply by flicking your thumb down on it. Overall, very realistic looking gun, shoots accurately, a lot of nice features, and fully adjustable rear is sight is a real push on a gun like this.
Things I would have changed:Ok one thing I hated about this gun was the magazine loading procedure. I can't begin to tell you how many times bb's have coming shooting back into my face from the mag. It's the simple pull down the follower and load in. Sometimes the spring will decide to fly up and Launch bb's all over the place or in your face. So be careful it's more annoying than dangerous. My other gripe was over the trigger pull. You can pull the trigger back quite far and than you feel a good amount resistance slowly building up. So I'd say it's a little stiff. But I've gotten used to it. My last issue is very small but it could matter to others so; the actual cocking of the gun can be at times hard to do. This is a combination of two things. One being the texture of the plastic, it's a very smooth slide with only a little room to grab the grooves to cock the gun. The second being the sights that are right on top were your hand rests to cock the gun. The notched rear sights will scrape against the inside of your palm as you cock the gun. This added with the smoothness of the slide gives you gun that can at times be a pain to cock. These were my only two issues.
What others should know:You should know this gun has a lot of nice features for 20 bucks. A fully adjustable rear sight, a white dot front sight, a working slide catch, an accessory rail, both gun and magazine have a nice realistic heft to them, and decent accuracy. All in all a very nice package for 20 bucks. My issue with cocking the gun can easily be solved by cocking the gun in a way that feels comfortable to you.

By I from USA on 2013-06-22 07:14:37Things I liked:I was very impressed with the accuracy ( 11/2 inch groups at 20 feet) which was very good accuracy for a sidearm. But after about 50 shots, it broke. The cocking mechanism wouldn't cock. I am suspecting it might have been a lemon, considering the other reviews, in which case, I will update this review. Pyramid air was very pleasant and even paid for shipping the gun back. 5 stars for pyramid air, 1 star for this gun, for now.
Things I would have changed:I liked everything while it worked.
What others should know:I cannot recommend this product, but if you are ever hesitant to buy something from Pyramid, don't be. They are great. Feel free to comment on this review; I would be glad to hear everyone's opinions.
