Things I liked:Nice gun, good feel good quality, for the money, if you like revolvers this is for you
Things I would have changed:Would love optional sights like fiber optic, but all good
What others should know:Not much shoot time so don't let my accuracy rating hurt your buying decision, seems good, but not too many pellets tried yet
Things I liked:Very well made, exceptional accuracy, good shot to shot consistency W.R.T. velocity (at least till you're at the tail end of a co2 powerlet). Nice to have 10 rounds in the rotary magazine. Most Co2 pellet pistols have 6 or 8. Comes with a nice case. Although I have installed a low profile panoramic sight (walther multireticle), there is enough room in the case so that I could still fit the gun in with minimal modification to the foam. The gun really comes to life IMO with this sort of sight. Since the sight radius is a little on the short side, It's very challenging to realize the pinpoint accuracy of which the pistol is capable using the stock open sights (Though they are adjustable and fairly good) with the dot sight, the issue of accuracy damaging sight misalignment is gone, and you will see those pellets go right where the dot says they will. I find that the pistol will hit anything I can see at 25 yards with this arrangement. It's quite satisfying. CO2 usage is very efficient.
Things I would have changed:I would like the feel in double action mode to be just a little bit smoother. It wouldn't need to be much smoother to make it perfect to my tastes, but I suspect it would take significant engineering to go from pretty darn smooth to perfectly smooth, thus raising the price. So, take this comment in the context of "If I could make them do whatever I want and not pay any more money " It really is a fine pellet gun I wouldn't want to dissuade anyone from buying this over such a minor and subjective issue. Also , I wish they'd bring back the 8" version! I'd buy one in a heartbeat.
What others should know:Its just a little on the loud side, probably due to the minute cylinder gap intrinsic to this type of pistol. Still, it's not unreasonable, I'd say its pretty average for CO2 repeating pistols (which are mostly, in fact, revolvers of some form. Though sometimes the cylinder and/or hammer are hidden to create the illusion of some other type of pistol) So, it's much louder than a spring piston , a bit louder than a pump up pneumatic , and much quieter than an un-shrouded PCP pistol. I find that this pistol works best in single action mode. Although the double action feel is quite good in the realm of air guns, I would say that it has a little "rough spot" somewhere in the middle of the cylinder advancement phase that is not as smooth as what you'd expect from a real fire arm of good quality such as a Ruger or a Smith. This is really nit picking though. It is very well made, and double action shooting is entirely viable.
Things I liked:The looks, the feel, that the cylinders are real metal, the adjustable sights, and accessories that allow a pistol scope or red dot to be used.
Things I would have changed:The method of piercing the co2 cylinder. If you don't get it to lock on the first try, it will empty the cylinder. Rear sight is ok, the front should have a gold or silver highlight on the top.
What others should know:Lots of users have sung the praises of this gun so I will not belabor you with that. It is nice, but it is not a powerful pistol. In my opinion it should be a .22, the .17 just doesn't have enough power to shoot anything but paper, but,that's just my opinion. It will work nicely indoors but doesn't have much range outdoors, especially if there is any wind. A Crosman 2300T is more powerful and way more accurate ( yes, I realize it is a single shot and a target gun, but it costs about the same and does a way better job at putting the pellet where you want it.) That is not my opinion, that is a fact easy to prove. All things considered, this is a very nice piece fun to shoot fun to show. If you have the disposable income to use I would say, buy it. If you want to shoot something outside get the 2300T also.
