Things I liked:i was given this gun as a gift about 12 years ago...i never even tried to use it until today..was going through some old boxes and found it and decided to give it a try..i even used the co's that came with it and the bb's...i love this thing..i am having so much fun..shooting soda cans in my hallway at 27 feet and hitting almost every time...i like it so much i ordered two more air pistols ....feel like a kid again...i am a 58 yr old male.
Things I would have changed:the only thing i would change would be the front site. i would make it white because shooting in my hall where the light isn't great i am having a hard time even seeing it...otherwise nothing..i love this gun.
What others should know:buy it, it's awesome.
Things I liked:Decent power.
Things I would have changed:Update the item illustration picture. It's not correct for the revised style 693.
What others should know:I owned one of these previously, and it eventually developed an air leak. But I used it a LOT,and had it a long time. The reason I bought another of the same was, I had already bought extra clips and a laser sight. Only problem with the new one is, my laser don't fit on it. The new one has a Weaver Picatinny mount. My old one didn't. So the illustration they have for the gun is of the older model.
Things I liked:I don't own a 693. I do own a model 93, the 693's grandpa. Same gun w/o the chrome. My 93 is probably 15 years old or better. Still shoots fine. Check your clip sam. It's probably not the magnet. Easy test. Remove the magazine and drop a BB on top of the magnet. Pitch the gun down and back, & side to side. If the BB stays put, it isn't the magnet. The springs in the magazines weaken after time. Here's a hint: Just because the mfg says the clip will hold a zillion rds, don't load that many. To constantly compress that tiny sping to the max and still expect it to return to zero everytime is unrealistic. I've owned clips that wouldn't feed the last 3 rnds. My fault for smashing the spring. As a rule I don't load more than 75% capacitiy on a spring fed magazine anymore. In the case of this gun 10 rds,...would be my first choice. In any event the problem solver is to buy some new mags if the follower spring wears out. I think PyramydAir sells them,...like 3 for ten bucks. You can't go wrong at that price.
Things I would have changed:Maybe lighten the trigger pull a little.
What others should know:Don't get discouraged. Yeah you don't have adjustable sights. The gun will shoot as well as you can shoot it and the sights aren't the problem. Remember it's a semiauto,..not a machine gun. Pick your spot and your hold on the target and don't change them. When you can group 3 rds together in the same place on that target time after time then you'll know if the gun shoots left, right, high, or low. 3 in the 7 ring you can cover with a quarter is better than the occassional Bull and a target that looks like you shot it with a shotgun. Handguns are inherintly the hardest of the all guns to shoot. Three words. Short sight radius. Every person with an eye can shoot a rifle. 16 to 22 inches front sight to rear. The closer those two sights are mounted together the harder and more critical the alignment becomes. That is the reason handgun shooting is so difficult. Notice the target pistols all have long barrels. They're no less or more accurate than your handgun. They have a longer sight radius. Keep shootin! The dresser drawer boneyard is full of once, twice, three times fired handguns. The shooter is Daniel Boone with a rifle and is "no good" with a pistol. Nonsense. He/she just hasn't had enough practice. Handgun shooting isn't easy. If it were, everybody would be good at it, ...myself included.
