Things I liked:With the exception of the black plastic grip covers, this gun is all metal. I like the weight and feel in my hand. Although it is all metal, the weight is not excessive. I like the appearance of the nickel finish. The power and accuracy are good. The trigger is smooth in both double action and single action. I got 96 shots with one Umarex CO2 and 104 with one Crosman CO2, although the last 8 shots for each were lower powered. With extra magazines, I can keep shooting until the CO2 runs out. Overall, this gun is a very good buy and fun to shoot.
Things I would have changed:The slide release is a two step lever that is rough and not smooth to operate. It does loosen up some with repeated use. Umarex has simpler, smoother slide release buttons on both the Walther PPQ and Smith & Wesson M&P 45 CO2 air guns. Umarex should replace the slide release with the one on either the PPQ or M&P 45. Umarex should also add white dots to the sights.
What others should know:I've successfully used a variety of pellets in this gun without any jams. Shooting tests were performed free-standing at a range of about 15 feet in my basement with two handed grip with arms extended. The wadcutters included Crosman Premier Super Match, RWS Meisterkugeln Rifle, RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol, JSB Match Diabolo Light Weight, H&N Match Pistol, and H&N Sport. All the wadcutter results were similar with the smallest cluster about 1 inch diameter (JSB Match Diabolo and RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol) and the largest about 1.5 inches diameter (RWS Meisterkugeln Rifle). The domed pellets included Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum, RWS Superdome, H&N Field Target Trophy, and JSB Exact Diabolo. The domed results were all similar with the smallest oblong cluster about 1 inch x 0.75 inch (H&N Field Target Trophy) and the largest about 1.5 inches x 1 inch (RWS Superdome). The pointed pellets included Crosman Premier Super Point, RWS Superpoint, and H&N Spitzkugel. These results were also all similar with the smallest cluster about 1 inch diameter (Crosman Premier Super Point) and the largest about 1 inch x 2 inches (RWS Superpoint).
Things I liked:Realistic look and feel. Nice weight and balance. Good accuracy with rifled barrel. Feels very solid. Nice fit and finish. Hitting 2" targets at 10 meters is no problem. Gets over 60 shots with good power per CO2 cartridge, even in cold temperatures. Excellent cartridge loading and sealing mechanism.
Things I would have changed:Rear sight should be adjustable for height. Clicking noise in trigger mechanism annoying in single action mode. Breech release very difficult out of the box--needed to remove barrel and lightly sand release with emory paper and lube with lithium grease. Now it's like butter. Trigger pull very heavy, especially in double action. Should be much lighter or have some form of adjustment. Buckmark .22LR and Colt .45 1911A1 APC--real guns--have MUCH lighter triggers. More than 2 magazines would be nice too. For this amount of money, these things should be corrected.
What others should know:Use RWS Meisterkugeln 7.0 grain wadcutters. They fit in the magazine perfectly and shoot very straight. The RWS domed 8.3 grain pellets are nice, but need some help seating fully in the magazine or the trigger will jam. RWS Hobby pellets are very tight fit and I needed to use a pencil eraser to get them flush in the magazine or experience major jamming issues. I don't recommend them, even though they are cheap. You will want to buy at least one 3 pack of extra magazines so you're not constantly reloading. Bottom line. Great gun for the money, just needs a few minor improvements.
Things I liked:Beautiful fit and finish. Stunning. Much more accurate than BB pistols. Rifled barrel a plus. Realistic weight and feel. This is a great gun. Sights very good. No need for elevation. Windage alone gets it done. Excellent gun for target and muscle memory. Good training tool. Good customer service from Umarex and Pyramyd Air.
Things I would have changed:Breech release very difficult. Had to disassemble and lightly emery paper the latch mechanism and lube. Now it's smooth as butter. Should come with more magazines. Instructions could address maintenace and cleaning a bit better. Annoying click in trigger mechanism in single action mode. I want to stress that none of these things are of major concern.
What others should know:RWS makes good pellets. Stick with Meisterkugeln 7.0 grain waddcutters for target shooting. I also like the RWS 8.3 grain domed, though they occassionaly need extra effort to seat in the magazine to avoid jamming the trigger. Avoid the RWS Hobby pellets; very poor fit, need to use a pencil eraser to push them into the magazine. I've shot 80 rounds with one CO2 cartridge, but it starts running out of steam in the sixties. Temperature and shooting speed affect this markedly. Also helpful to carefully paint with red/orange nail polish the back side if the front site. That makes it really stand out. Enjoy.
