By Joel from USA on 2009-04-23 12:55:29Things I liked:Good power for an airsoft handgun. Very detailed, includes Taurus brands and trademarks, all levers are funtional - not just molded on for appearances. Two clips included, and they're nice quality. Slide locks back automatically on empty magazine. For airsoft, this is extremely accurate; I don't know if I can really "hit a quarter at 25 feet" like claimed, but this gun is very, very consistent with 0.20 gram BB's. Nice, clean profile; nothing sticks out to catch in holsters or other gear.
Things I would have changed:I know that the soft rubber, ribbed handgrip is authentic to the real handgun, but I don't particularly like it... Just my personal taste, though; it doesn't detract from the overall feel of the pistol. Not much metal, and this is a little pricey for an almost entirely plastic pistol. The "recoil" spring -- which in a gun like this only snaps the slide closed after cocking -- is too weak, and sometimes the slide needs some help closing. I would love for this to be strippable so I can put silicone lube on moving parts, but there is no disassembly lever.
What others should know:This is a terrific spring pistol. It shoots about on par, for power and accuracy, with my KSA Glock G18C gas gun (and my Glock is fully upgraded). I have several (over 30) spring pistols, and this one is shaping up to be the best so far. For me, 0.20 gram BB's (from TSD) are working great; 0.12's are far too light for any accuracy, 0.25's are good to about 30 feet, but then dive into the grass. From my front door, I can hit my mailbox, 71 feet away with 0.20's, and they hit hard enough to be audible. The gun is a bit on the light side; I would appreciate more heft. When I ordered, I thought the slide was alloy, but it's high-grade engineering resin, like the frame, with a different finish to look like brushed metal. The sights are non-adjustable, and the sighting dots are huge. Trigger is plastic, but has very nice pull, and crisp release. The outer barrel is black nylon (or other plastic) and has a 1/2 inch orange extension attached at the muzzle.

By CharlesC from USA on 2010-01-18 21:05:54Things I liked:It's accurate
Things I would have changed:A little hard to rack Questionable durability Redesign it so BBs don't get stuck in slide.
What others should know:While I find this gun acceptably accurate, I don't know how durable it is. As I racked the slide, two BBs got stuck in the slide. It's fairly easy to remove the slide with a punch but it was hard to find the BBs and to reassemble the gun. I did it but can't say it was much fun
