Things I liked: Blowback is just plain cool/fun. I can get 130 or so carefully aimed shots out of one CO2 canister. I'm not into rapid fire (as\ a resul I don't go through CO2 like crazy) and, in spite of what people say about this gun and smooth bore pistols, it's pretty darned accurate (shooting at about 15-20 feet from target). Only wavers when my concentration does. Pink's my favorite color. My father's quest for a fun BB gun took him from a Makarov with grips that slid off too easily to some other pistol whose name I can't recall that had a trigger pull that required two hands to, finally, the PPK/S. And, after letting me try his and seeing what a kick I got out of shooting it, he got one with pink grips for me. They are the same pistol, obviously, with different color grips.

Things I would have changed: Nothing, really, except for a small issue I'll mention below.

What others should know: There is one issue I've read about with this gun that I also experienced myself, and that is that after shooting it for a couple of weeks, the slide started sticking. It would cycle all the way to the rear but on the way back, it would get stuck about 1/4 inch from the front of the barrel. Fortunately, I remembered having read a comment on the pyramyd air blog (the one written by Tom Gaylord, a.k.a. BB Pelletier) that mentioned this. Several months later, someone else came along and posted about his similar experience and what he found to be the problem. For the sake of other PPK/S owners, I'm providing the link below. If Umarex could figure out what causes this--and why it doesn't happen with all of the PPK/Ss; it hasn't happened to my father's--and fix it, this gun would be perfect, IMO. Here's where I found the solution to the problem I was having with my gun: http://www.pyramydair.com/blog/2005/12/walther-cp99-compact-walthers-other.html

Things I liked: Fun to shoot. Great training aid for my daughter.

Things I would have changed: Poor design. The gun only lasted 2 shooting sessions before the slide started jamming after every shot.

What others should know: Would be perfect if it would work longer.

    Things I liked: The best bang for your buck!. I got this for my granddaughter and not only does she love it, so does everyone else, even if it is pink. It’s really hard to tell it from a real gun. It’s mostly metal and cocks and fires like the real thing. The blow back works well and gives the impression that the gun has much more power than it does. It’s a HOOT to SHOOT... pun intended.

    Things I would have changed: Nothing

    What others should know: My problem is now that I’m looking a getting one (in black) for my grandson, and one for myself... oh my poor credit card.
