Things I liked: Very light handling characteristics (can be good or bad depending on individual preferences). This is, to me at least, the TOZ-35's of Air Pistol: it's more forgiving of slight fundamental errors as compared to other High-end AP's I've shot. What should've been a bad "8" with other AP's usually ends up cutting the 9 ring with this one, and shots that should've been weak 9's sometimes clip the edge of the 10 ring. This could be due to the clean, slight-roll breaking 1.9lb. trigger (as it's set from the factory), and maybe the balance of the gun AND the tiny OEM plastic grip not having full contact with my hand so if any slight muscle twitch when I trip the trigger the barrel doesn't seem to move away from its intended aim as fast and as much, which gives you a better "value" shot than other AP's.
Things I would have changed: I think it'd be great if Hammerli offers adult-size grip (plastic is fine) as factory option if buyer chooses so, and still keep it under a grand. For most adults they will find the out-of-the-box gip rather tiny. However, one must take into account (and understandably forgive) that this gun was conceived to meet the goal of introducing youngsters into the Olympic disciplines at the grassroots level without incurring sizable debt in pocketbooks of sponsoring shooting clubs, and still have an uncompromising tool with the potential to shoot world class scores. And it can, as I've shot many 570's with it (and I'm no Olympic hopeful- just another middle age dude plagued with failing eyesight :-)). Personally I'm too cheap to spend another $300+ for a Rink grip, so I'll live with the dinky grips. If you have Male Medium adult size hands or larger, and for the ladies, if you have a decent size hand, may I suggest you purchase aftermarket grip to better suit you. :-)
What others should know: This AP comes supplied with DIN 200 fill adapter. Unless you have your SCUBA tank fitting set up to accept DIN 200, then you have to buy necessary adapters before you can properly and safely fill your cylinder. My SCUBA tank was purchased from the local dive shop and they only have DIN 300 fitting, so the supplied DIN 200 won't work at all. Please do a search for pilkgun's excellent write up on scuba fittings for airguns before you go further. A very required read as knowledge of knowing how to SAFELY set up to fill IS A MUST! All in all, You won't be disappointed with this fine precision shooting machine. :-) Cheers, be safe with proper air filling, and good luck!
