The 650nm red laser sight is a Class 3A with 5mW output. It uses 3 LR44 lithium batteries (included) and has a composite body. The momentary remote switch has an 8" coiled cord. The laser has a range of 100 yds. with indoor lighting and an outdoor nighttime range of 300 yds. It comes with elevation adjustments.

Things I liked: It provides all reasonable bells and whistles anyone can imagine, perhaps too many, but I'm glad to have them, easily adaptable for other airguns. The coolest physical feature, the "wow factor", for this gun is its pseudo-silencer. The gun has numerous metal parts, most importantly, a forge rail on the underside of the barrel, in front of the trigger guard.
Things I would have changed: What I did to the weapons, I bought 2, was remove the external rail system attached to the gun from the factory. Reviewers are correct the outer rail system does vibrate, however, I removed it (radical solution). Remember, there is a forge rail, I now add whichever addon floats my boat and presto you have a great gun for a great price. I just don't understand how they make a profit. I would include a parts list and diagram for maintenance, disassembly / reassembly.
What others should know: In the laser housing, stretch the battery contact spring about 1/2 cm, to secure the contact point for the batteries. Not to do so could result in the laser shutting off in the middle of shooting, not a big deal once I figured it out. Buy extra clips, pellets, targets and CO2 cartridges. Once your friends come over the guns will be a source of unending fun. Personally I took one gun and attached the red laser, the other with the tactical light attachment.
Things I liked: When I saw this gun and did the research both on Google and Youtube I was very impressed with the accuracy and what you received for the price you paid. I received my shipment on time and in full however there was an issue with the gun when I received it. I returned this product for new one and there was no issue with the return and sending out the product. The original product I received had a serious issue with the red dot sight as there was an o-ring inside the scope housing that was not seeded properly and in turn was blocking the view through the scope...rendering it totally useless. I called customer service to see if I could send just the scope back however I had to return everything. After waiting a week for the replacement I received another complete package and when inspecting the product discovered that I was sent another defective product with the same issue. Very discouraging because I know I will have to send the whole thing back again.
Things I would have changed: When I called customer service to discuss the issues I had to leave a message and I would get a call back very quickly (it took 11 days to get this returned call). When I called back and tried to talk to different department to see what to do the only answered I ever received from the product support department was to fill out the return form for return authorization. I will say this was very quick and thought that maybe the original problem I has with the o-ring was a one off....I was mistaken and now I'm waiting for a new return authorization to return this for the second and last time or I will ask for my money back. I would also ask that if a return is made for a certain product defect and another is sent out to the customer please inspect it. Nothin worse than valued customers running into the same issue because according to your return policy the whole package has to be sent back.
What others should know: Be aware of this issue before you buy this product...very frustrating because I have good money tied up in this and I want it to be right. Once I receive the proper package with all products working than I will be more than happy to add to this review. Good luck everyone and ask questions. I did insert a picture of the issue for reference.
Things I liked: Especially like the blowback feature, clip insertion, feel of the gun in your hand and reasonably good accuracy. I disagree with many of the negative comments about this gun. For the money, it is a fun pistol and is providing me with many hours of fun. Mounted a Center Point 2.5 pistol scope which improved my accuracy up to 45'.
Things I would have changed: Trigger adjustment and overall tightening of the barrel. If this were done I feel that the accuracy would be greatly improved at greater distances. Also the clip pellet holes need to be stronger for a tighter fit of the pellet as using both sides of the clip will almost always result in a jam when the clip is flipped.
What others should know: Get extra clips and use only one side for loading pellets. When both sides of the clip are loaded the blowback will loosen the pellets and a jam will result when the clip is flipped. The JSB RS Diabolo has proven to give the best results with both accuracy and lack of jams. Out of a 500 pellet can, I had 1 jam, which was easy to clear. The maximum accurate shots from one cartridge is 48. After that accuracy falls of rapidly.
Does a fake suppressor help reduce sound at least a bit?
can it use pellets and bb's?
Can the blowback be disabled
