Things I liked:

Initial impression: Very comfortable grip. Enough weight for both balance and long-term strength. Which comes as something of a surprise for an inexpensive plinking pistol. Overall: Good airgun for practice and particularly for teaching gun safety. No one is allowed 'upgrade' until they can show proficiency and safe practices with the PSM45.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing stands out as a problem. Particularly if you recognize the limitations to be expected with a spring-driven non-C02 air piston.

What others should know:

Notice where the clip eject and the safety are located. An improper grip can cause the clip to drop.

Things I liked:

Nice looking pistol

Things I would have changed:

Never could get it to shoot. Cocking the pistol does not load BBs into the firing mechanism. Instead the BB just rattles around inside the gun. Removing the slide, shaking and rotating the gun in several directions takes a few minutes of fooling around to remove the loose BB.

    Things I liked:

    Inexpensive. Springer action is better than CO2 to have handy at all times. Good sight picture. Mag holds 20 BBs

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the grip a softer texture

    What others should know:

    BBs will not penetrate a soda can at 20 feet

    Things I liked:

    Good feel and weight reminds me of my Glock22 I highly recommend this for the price, good accuracy to 25ft. Great trainer pistol. I got this pistol 3 weeks ago and I shoot it every day. I can hit a can at 15ft every shot. Lots of fun. This gun looks like the real deal, be careful.

    Things I would have changed:

    At this price nothing. It is not very powerful, but is in line with other spring pistols. I once had an old Marksman repeater bb pistol and this is similar. Shoot all day for pennies.

    What others should know:

    When I first shot the pistol it had little power and jammed frequently, I was disappointed. I oiled the magazine and barrel and continued to shoot, the gun got better and better. Now after 3 weeks it is a joy to shoot. It will only jam if I fail to pull the slide back all the way when cocking. If it does jam just remove the magazine and work the slide while shaking the gun and the BB will fall out.

    Things I liked:

    Weight, Feel, accuracy, looks

    Things I would have changed:

    Could be more powerful

    What others should know:

    Out of the box it did not fire well, after 40 rounds i oiled the magazine, slide and barrel. What a difference! The more I shot it the better it got. Put 300 rounds through it the first day. Able To hit a can at 15 feet every time. It is a blast to shoot, but a learning curve to operate. I recomend it for a teenager to adult, It certainly looks like the real deal!

    Things I liked:

    I've purchased 4 of these 'springer' BB pistols so far. All have chronographed 15 to 20 fps above the listed 190 fps MV max with Crosman and Daisy BBs. All sturdy, flawless in function as long as user makes the full cock and not slip a full cock then go again causing jam. Jam is quickly corrected by pulling magazine, shaking and pulling by cocking slide several times - a BB or a few will fall out. Install magazine and get back to shooting. At 15 feet it is possible to often keep BBs inside a 1" to 1.5" circle. Once you get familiar with these pistols hitting soup cans often enough to keep you entertained is possible out to 40 feet or so. I own and have owned many, many airguns including those costing over a $1,000 - this BB pistol is still fun to me.

    Things I would have changed:

    I want the magnum version when it comes out! LOL Say 250-275 fps MV. I think a little stronger main spring would do it and I can handle that harder cocking pull. Advertise it for bigger boys and girls.

    What others should know:

    Get you one or more! Lube it - so many forget to lubricate!

    Things I liked:

    Fit, feel and finish is very good. The metal slide is a very welcome touch. Very accurate at BB distances. The 20 round magazine is nice and easy to load. This BB pistol is one of my favorites to shoot. The sights are nice, non adjustable but mine was dead on at around 5 to 7 yards. I have around 2000 BB through mine and it has only gotten better the more I have shot it. My kids and myself love it!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    For the price and ease of use. This is an excellent value.

    Things I liked:

    Great shooter for my 9yo.He murata put 500+ rounds in the first month with a drop of oil about 100 rounds.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing it's got a great arch to the round that make it accurate and the low power makes it safe for indoor shooting.

    Things I liked:

    Great for short range practice

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much at this price. 'cept maybe the availability of an extra mag

    What others should know:

    At shorter range, it's amazingly accurate for a smooth barrel shooter. I think the low velocity (-190 FPS) has a lot to do with that. When you think about it, that lower velocity also makes this a safer BB pistol. Accuracy? Depends on the range. I routinely shoot wasps off the driveway at ten feet. So much fun that I'm running outta wasps. :o) Tends to jam once in a while, but easy to clear. A quick, "decisive" cock, and letting it snap back works best. At fifteen feet, it's as accurate as your real "nine" without all that noise and expense. Just shut up and buy one!

    Things I liked:

    This is an awesome gun. Great for plinking/Target shooting. Fairly accurate. Fun to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    Include a breakdown of the gun internals and disassembly instructions as it will need to be oiled inside and sometimes errant bbs cleared from the innards.

    What others should know:

    For those seeking extra or spare mags, call Crosman customer service. They can fix you right up.

    Things I liked:

    Great feel and weight looks good too its a fun plinking gun at a good price

    Things I would have changed:

    Maybe a little more power but for the price you can't expect to much also unless its me every now and then it seems to miss a bit but for smooth bore I can expect accuracy to be a little off and like I said for the price you can't expect a nail driver

    What others should know:

    Some reviews state issues with firing I've yet to experience any problems after 80 rounds for the price its pretty good

    Things I liked:

    This BB pistol looks and "feels" like a real firearm. The weight is just right; the magazine is heavy and at first glance appears to be made for a real firearm.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    I have not had a chance to fire the pistol yet, so I cannot rate it for accuracy. But based on its appearance, weight, and "feel." I would expect it to be quite accurate at distances appropriate for a BB pistol. I fully expect this little BB pistol to prove to be better than several others I own that cost me a great deal more.

    Things I liked:

    It's quiet, solid, well-built. The magazine is better than most, easy to load and slides in and out smoothly. The sights are aligned well. Not too hard to rack, and the trigger is light and consistent. It's also a handsome gun, Good for just shooting off a few rounds with commiting to a full co2 cart.

    Things I would have changed:

    The grip is bulky and not the most ergonomically friendly. It's kinda top heavy ven though the magazine is nicely weighted. Accuracy isn't it's strong suit. The safety switch is rather hard to operate. The trigger is a bit toy-ish.

    What others should know:

    At close range, this thing can be as accurate as any other gun, if you do the work.

    The shape and design are realistic. Has an amazing amount of heft to it, especially for such a cheap pistol.

    A ton of fun to shoot! Can be used to train kids in firearms safety.

    Things I liked:

    Rugged design, definitely durable. Action is all smooth from magazine ejection to slide bolt action. Quiet when discharging and has power.

    Things I would have changed:

    The grip is more hollow than I would prefer. With the magazine inserted, there are still plenty of airspace voids which could be problematic later. I'm thinking of adding my own material as fill to address this.

    What others should know:

    Just a fun plinking weapon. Not for competition.
