Things I liked:Very well made. Nice fit, finish, and blueing. The wooden grips are made large and blocky so you can do your own custom fitting. Upgraded trigger is nice for getting a good finger cradle. Unbelievable trigger pull right out of the box, light and crisp. A firm but easy pull for compressing the gas. I just got it and shot it for 3 hours without any problem which made for a very fun first session. Its a very basic gun but I think in this case its perfect for what it is. No excuses gun. Once you sight it in, if you miss, its clearly your fault. 10shots/10meters on a bench rest and groupings generally look like 5 maybe 6 shot groups. I also purchased a BSA red dot with it, once it was sighted in, worked great. The mount they offer is made well and easy to install. Overall, there is not much to not like about this gun.
Things I would have changed:Not much...maybe make the grips just a little longer. I have big hands but not huge and I took all of the allowed adjustment on the base plate and had to do some wood removal to fit it correctly and still allow the compression arm to seat fully. But once I took a dremel, file, sandpaper, and some artistic license, it fits great, looks great.
What others should know:The only thing I found odd for my particular gun was the rear sighting blade had to be adjusted to the extreme right. It was within the adjustment that the gun permits being that I also had to loosen the blade itself and move it far right as well. When I mounted the red dot it too had to be adjusted completely right. Although I found it odd I didn't find it enough of an issue to complain to Pyramid about it. It did sight in and continues to shoot extremely accurate. Plan on having to some work on the grips. They are left rough and its obvious that they intend for you to do some work. They do take the time to patch glue them together for you. So once you remove the base plate and 2 screws, the grip assembly comes off in one piece. Makes it easy to do what you need to and just slide back on when finished. Since they are raw you it leaves it open for you to use water based wood dyes and such (I went with a deep blue). I found it to be a fun aspect of the gun and rewarding as the fit you can achieve is unlike most any other pistol you will ever shoot and looks to boot.
Things I liked:Very accurate. Tried three different pellets, none high end match, each different weight. All shot little tiny groups, in different locations, but very consistent. Grip is easy to adjust. Easy to dry fire without pumping, just to practice technique while watching TV. Readily admit this is one UGLY item, but you can take a rasp to the handle to custom fit it without feeling bad! Smooth those spots with a little fine sandpaper and the grip is outstanding. I even used a rat tail to put finger grooves in mine. Mine came with much darker wood than I expected. Looks really nice.
Things I liked: After reading all the praise people heap on this pistol I have to agree its well deserved. The accuracy of this gun is amazing. The trigger pull on this pistol is beyond belief, I don't have a gauge but I own 2 quality .22LR target pistols that I felt had incredible triggers, after shooting the IZH the other guns triggers feel as if they weigh a ton.
Things I would have changed: It would be nice if they included detailed disassembly instructions if in the future you want to replace the piston seals but I think you can find instructional videos on You Tube that cover this.
What others should know: If you`re a new purchaser of this pistol, be careful since here is no safety on this gun, with a trigger pull this light I unintentionally discharged the pistol twice but if you`ve ever shot at a range you know the protocol = muzzle pointed downrange at all times. The grips are oversize but I have a few round files and plenty of sandpaper to cut finger grooves and shape them to my own hand. This takes a bit of time but after all its a labor of love.
