Things I liked: Size, consistency shot to shot, natural pistol feel....not some 18 inch or longer "PISTOL" 12 inches on compact!!! I did finally get to shoot the AP16 for some accuracy and WOW I was shocked and amazed as was my Stepson who shot it as well for verification. I started very simple at 25 yards (just a honest heads up...I'm not so good with a pistol.....no two ways around it), but at 25 yards off hand with a cheap little reflex site I was NAILING the bulls eye EVERY TIME!!! At that I was amazed. So I moved back to 30 and SAME THING. So at that point I figured I'd move back to my 43 yard setup and guess what.......SAME THING still. I'm not exaggerating, this thing is AMAZINGLY accurate. My next shots were at 51 yards ( note this was a windy day here in Cincinnati, not light wind, but with some heavy gusts). At 51 yards I maintained no more than 2" groups....at which I am simply at a loss for words. My next shots, which were at 76 yards, were hitting the black in the target every time. NICE!

Things I would have changed: Perhaps more power.....but that is just my preference. For the system it IS, it's awesome.

What others should know: Yes it is a little high priced, but this thing is SOLID all the way around. You also have the ability to put on the Standard Barrel for more shots and power. I have the standard barrel as well but have not tested it as of yet.

Things I liked: Gun is beautifully machined and made.

Things I would have changed: Received two different generation guns and both are mechanical lemons. First one leaked air. Second one the bolt would lock up and when it cycled, the rotary mag would spin randomly past an unused pelket or sometimes two or even three. Absolutely frustrating because the gun is beautiful and accurate.

What others should know: Horribly designed gun mechanically with various unrelated malfunctions over two different manufacturing batches. Never again, Ataman. I'm done and you should be, too.

    Things I liked: I own one of the AP 16's standard.I have it tuned to 658 fps av. w/18.13 gr. JSB's for 28 shots W/ 17.43 FPE. You can tune this pistol to where you like it.As for your pitting complaint it looks to be done that way on purpose for looks.It's laser accurate.This pistol is awesome.You can't trust some reviews because they are made buy people that don't know what they're talking about. Usually very inexperienced people in the sport.I have a friend that has his at 665 FPS.

    Things I would have changed: The clips could be better.Some don't cycle right sometimes.Make a single shot tray.

    What others should know: This can be tune low power for lots of shots for plinking or high power for hunting.

    Things I liked: Good weight and nice balance. Simple rotary clip that is easy to load and the left side cocking action provide great ergonomics. Shot power/velocity is as advertised.

    Things I would have changed: Black anodized finish on aluminum body of the gun is POOR. At $1000, I'd expect a nice finish similar to my other FX and Weirach guns. The finish had a speckled pitting across the body...something I would consider unacceptable in a $200 bb gun.

    What others should know: The gun gets the shot count as advertised. I have an Omega tank, so the refills were not an issue...would be a lot of work with a hand pump. Also, I attempt to RMA this gun for a replacement with PyramidAir - they approved the RMA and without explanation shipped me back the defectice pistol...still working through this with them.
