By Neil from USA on 2010-05-28 14:13:01Things I liked:I bought this air pistol as a trainer for my S&W Model 41 rimfire I use for Bullseye. It's about as close as I could find and possibly more accurate. I can easily shoot dime size groups resting on a hard surface at 10 meters and no doubt will do better after I find the right pellets. There is no detectable recoil and it's very quiet. I was concerned about the power but It has more power than my CO2 Colt 1911 by Umerax. In fact it has enough power to knock over my Gamo Squirrel target while my Colt does not. I shot at the bottom of an empty tuna can at 50 ft and it put a large dent but would not penetrate. It has enough power to comfortably shoot bullseye target at 50ft which is all the power I need. It's also great for plinking tin cans and metallic silhouette. It's not a hunting pistol however. The workmanship is top quality. It's also lighter than I expected. The trigger is about as good as they get. Better than my rimfire target pistol.
Things I would have changed:The rail is a bit large for mounting red dots. I did manage to mount an 11mm red dot but I had to back out the screws a ways. The grip is not as comfortable as it looks. I would like to remove some metal from the grip under the trigger or make the grip wider to cover it up. The grip is too short for my hand. Perhaps a longer grip would solve this problem. I might make a custom grip for it.
What others should know:This air pistol will make all your other air pistols obsolete. It's very addicting and hard to put down.

By Jon from USA on 2011-11-08 07:04:21Things I liked:This gun looks very good in person. The sights are great. The trigger is very nice and light. Cocking the hammer for dry fire is a great plus when practicing form. 10 yard 10 shot accuracy rested was pretty good. Rws superdome was 5/8" ctc, crosman premier wadcutter 1". Both groups opened to about 1.25" non rested firing standing. Single shot with 0.75" targets very repeatable. Noise is not very loud, great for basement sessions. Pleasure to use and own!
Things I would have changed: Fit is slightly loose. The wood grips frequently make clicking noise when holding the gun in position to fire. Generally, this occurs when your thumb rests near the safty. I'll have to check the manual later to see of there is a way to tighten the grip to the gun...
What others should know:The darker texture of the bottom half of the grip seen in the pictures is the rich wood of the grip made porous. At first, the porous texture is odd, but you get used to it. The cocking effort it harder than I thought it would be, but this is because the profile of being a pistol grants the user only a small surface to act as alever to cock the pistol. I rest the pistol grip flat bottom on a table during cockingand this helps tremendously. At 470$, this gun is an absolute joy. It isnt powerful, but it is an amazing indoor 10 yard target weapon. Read my ratings as 4.5 stars.
