    Things I liked:

    I've had a lot of fun and success shooting this pistol at paper targets and knockdowns in my basement during the winter. It's got great balance, terrific grips, and is super easy to cock and shoot. I've had no issues with the plastic upper.

    Things I would have changed:

    my back sights are not level, the left side is slightly lower than the right side.

    Things I liked:

    I'm a sucker for ribbed barrels on target guns, this pistol has a long sight radius and adjustable sights, I'm still getting familiar with it, so I have not adjusted anything yet, but from my understanding the rear notch can be adjusted for width which is conducive to target shooting, trigger can also be adjusted, so far factory settings are doing ok.

    Things I would have changed:

    I like that the grip is wood, it gives the sense of higher quality, I will need to modify the adjustable block at the back heel to have a similar angle as the backstrap. It creates a uncomfortable pressure point on the bottom my palm, but because its wood it gives the user the ability to tailor fit. I would like to see more metal on the gun, as a target gun I feel that it would benefit from the weight of more metal, although the quality is great. I think metal would take it up a notch. I have 4 stars on value for money because at $270. More metal would be great.

    What others should know:

    I purchased this beginning of 2021, firearm ammo is scarce and expensive so I dove back into airguns to satisfy my itch to target shoot. I didn't have a air pistol and this seemed like a good self contained (Doesn't rely on external power source) pistol. I'm mostly a target shooter, and this gun is set up for it. Definitely a great entry into air pistols, as accurate as a rifle and smooth operating.

    Things I liked:

    Price, accuracy, left-hand grip availability.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much at this price point.

    What others should know:

    This a fantastic pistol for the price. It is extremely accurate and a lot of fun in the basement. The grip is a little large for my small hands but it is wood so I can work on correcting that. This is certainly a cost effective way to get some practice during the off season while stuck indoors (with a proper pellet trap). I will add a pcp pistol in the near future but in the mean time this was a much less expensive alternative. As always, Pyramid Air was a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to many more purchases from them.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy. Trigger force and angle adjustments. Comfort handle adjustments. Sighting...see below.

    Things I would have changed:

    Clearer directions for rear sight adjustment, in particular, adjusting the width of the rear sight opening. But when you figure it out, it is exceptional!

    What others should know:

    My neighbor, who turned me on to PyramydAir was a US Army Pistol Shooting Champion and certified pistol instructor. He was the first person I let fire this air gun and he was impressed! Who the heck am I to disagree with that? Its easy to use and as smooth as you want it to be after adjusting it to your desires. Marketed as an entry level air gun target pistol, it checks all the boxes. Im really pleased with this purchase! And Im enjoying the heck out of the experience!

    Things I would have changed:

    spec says up to 400 fps, 335 actual on my chronograph . need to use lightest pellets and still does not cut good hole on target

    What others should know:

    not really a very viable 10 meter entry pistol as it would be nearly imposable to score the hits on target due to the poor penetration of pellets

  • Rating 4.04.0 4.0

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Rating 5.05.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    It's accurate, has an excellent trigger, and the single-pump action is great for short sessions where you don't want to deal with CO2 or tanks. The grip is decent, but may need to be faired to fit the hand perfectly. I have large hands and it fits. Friends with smaller hands don't have a problem with it. The design is simple and sturdy.

    Things I would have changed:

    A safety that engages at the start of the cocking cycle would be a nice feature. Cocking the gun can be a chore, making it easy to point in an unsafe direction in the process, especially if you're new to the gun. Loading can be fidgety, and getting a pellet stuck in the chamber is pretty easy. Keep a rod handy to tap it out. This is probably what's causing the complaints about it not firing when loaded and cocked.

    What others should know:

    There is a screw opposite the windage knob that adjusts the width of the rear sight. Out-of-the-box, the rear sight is so narrow that there's no light visible on the sides of the front sight. Open the screw a bit and you'll be right at home.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate. Good quality overall.

    Things I would have changed:

    The handle is rough I sanded mine down. Trigger is not the best, would love to see a full metal trigger, springs are flimsy including trigger spring.

    What others should know:

    If you start having issues cocking the pistol, not holding air, having to pump multiple times in order for it build up pressure. The issue is with the valve assembly turning loose. Mine started doing this after about 1200 shots, thought it was a seal but upon inspection I saw that the valve assembly was loose. To tighten it up just need to take the handles off and the trigger cover inside, using needle pliers you can tighten up the valve assembly.

    more metal part other than plastic, maybe use aluminum instead of plastic will be much better!!!

    What others should know:

    very accurate almost with any pellet, i use r10 match pistol pellet in 10m match to get the good result!

    Things I liked:

    The overall construction of the pistol and the adjustability of the grips and trigger.

    Things I would have changed:

    The manual refers to being able to alter the rear sight (in respect to the notch to be aligned with the front sight). I was unable to do this because the only screw I could see was the windage screw which adjusts the entire sight and does not alter the opening. My preference would be for a slightly larger opening in the rear sight.

    I wear medium gloves and like the grip size. It's way more accurate than I am. Seems well designed and constructed. Has nice fit and finish,

    Things I would have changed:

    don't see anything after 2 shooting sessions.

    What others should know:

    I first time I shot it I noticed one it the screws that holds barrel in place was missing. Scott from customer service sent the parts to fix it, Thanks. Would recommend to other Junior programs.

    Things I liked:

    When this gun worked it was dead on at 10 M

    Things I would have changed:

    The V10 I received only worked off and on, it would not hold air in the cylinder and so would fire but not move the pellet. I am hoping that it was a quality control issue and I have returned the pistol for replacement. We will see when I get the replacement.

    What others should know:

    Pyramd Air is certainly not at fault here and sent me a FedEx label for a return since I was under 30 days.

    Things I would have changed:

    Would be nice if Air Venturi would rec a few pellet brands that will work in this pistol

    What others should know:

    Just got the pistol. Also ordered Meisterkugeln Pro Pistol Pellets 177 Cal 8.2g Wadcutter. These pellets will not fire in my pistol. Hammer drops but no pellet comes out. Another reviewer also had trouble with another pellet brand. Some old cheap crosman pellets that I bought at Walmart do shoot fine.

    Have had it since Dec 2018 and so far so good.

    you can't run cheap pellets like crossman or daisy in this, they will get stuck. only match grade pellets seem to work well

    Things I liked:

    Excellent accuracy for the price. Nice to be able to shoot a few rounds without wasting the rest of a CO2 cartridge. Cocks easily, good sights, I especially like the adjustable notch width. As a non-competition shooter, all the pistol I'd ever want.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing comes to mind...

    Things I liked:

    Grip, trigger, function, accuracy

    Things I would have changed:

    Plastic sights don't give great inspiration. Metallic construction would be better but probably not economically feasible. I would like to see a finer adjustment for elevation. It is a bit too coarse for my liking.

    What others should know:

    As indicated in the owner's handbook, the top sight screw adjusts elevation. The screw on Right side of rear sight adjusts windage (left / right). WHAT is NOT mentioned in the owner's manual is that there is a much smaller screw on Left side of rear sight which can be used to make some adjustment to the width of the rear sight slot opening. At my age (76) and with my eyesight, I prefer to see a bit more daylight on either side of the front sight blade when I am looking at my sight picture. As received, the pistol rear sight showed almost no daylight on either side of the front sight. By turning the small screw (clockwise) at the rear Left of the rear sight (looking downrange at the target) I was able to open up the slot to create more daylight on either side of the front sight.
