Things I liked:

I received this pistol last week and I have to say WOW. This is one of the best built blowback togglelock lugar I have seen. Unlike its WE airsoft counterpart, this gun is solidly built and the internals are beefy and strong and not o verly engineered but having said that the proof is in the function and mine funtions perfectly. the trigger pull is very light and will take you by suprise if you are not careful. The accuracy is spectacular for a smooth bore bb gun on all the types of bbs I shot with it,except copperheads (@ 20 ft.)the safty only engages when the pistol is cocked and ready to fire, the pistol feels great in the hand and is nicely balanced and the sights are easy to use even though they are in motion the kick is a bit harder than my 22s. and the toggle lock up on the last shot is nice all in all I would say I can see why the Lugar p08 is so popular even today. This pistol looks good ,feels good, shoots good and the fun factor is off the charts. So I give it a solid 5 star

Things I would have changed:

Only 1 thing and anyone who ownes the WE p08 airsoft will know about part # 122 . It is the flat washer that locks the clevis at the rear of the toggle bolt to the upper right side of the upper receiver, they fall off very easy especially if you remove the upper receiver for cleaning and lubing, if you want to get it to stay on and still be removable without ruining the pistols finish use a rubber cement that is safe for skin applications, apply a little around the washer and put it back on. it will hold the part on and can be removed and simply rubbed off like without damaging the pistol or the finish , and beleive me that part can come off even when your shooting the gun and there is only one place I know to get that part.but that is the only thing that could ruin your day about this pistol, or if you run out of co2 or ammo. I LOVE MINE!!!

What others should know:

buy it it will be the most fun purchase you will make it is solid fun and has a solid backing at Pyramid. p.s get a spare mag or two if you can afford it. I also used Crosman and Swiss Arms c02 powerlets , just make sure you have them centered in your mag(centered on each side ) or you will not get the mag. in the grip.

    Co2 life.

    What others should know:

    This pistol goes through co2 like a house afire! If you take time between shots, you may get 40 shots per capsule. but if you just ping them off in a hurry, you'll be lucky to get that!

    Things I liked:

    This pistol looks and feels like the German one my dad had brought back from the war and we handled with as kids. The only reason I gave it 4 Stars for value is, man does it go through CO2. I'm lucky to get 50 shots through it before a cartridge is completely empty. Mine also does has a tendency to lockup, but it's an easy fix.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like it if the magazine slide locked down.

    What others should know:

    It really goes through the CO2...

    Things I would have changed:

    The magazine. The one that came with the gun is useless. It leaks all the CO2 out immediatlely following the first couple of shots. I did order three extra magazines along with the gun and they work perfectly.

    Will see how good Pyramid customer service is regarding this

    Things I liked:

    The Legends PO 8 has become one of my favorite gun. The look, the feel are very realistic. It is one of the most accurate shooting guns I have. I have had success with a variety of steel BBs , and dont have to feed it premium Bbs for accuracy. The blowback action is truly realistic.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    From what I have been able to research, the Legends PO 8 is a nice replica of the 1941 Black Widow. The original gun was only manufactured from 1941 to 1942. It was the last of the Lugers made by Mauser. The 42 on the toggle was the manufacturing code for Mauser in 1941 and changed to byf in 1942. The manufacture code should be on the other side of the toggle to be historically correct. The ac is the manufacturer code for Walther and is irrelevant. The black widow with its black bakeolite grips are rare and collectors will pay a premium for one. So keep the black plastic grips and have a nice replica of a hard to find piece of history.

    Things I liked:

    This gun seems to be built with quality materials, has a good heft to it, and is quite fun to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    There are several design flaws with this gun: (1) The gun is prone to jamming. If the toggle doesn't cycle, it won't shoot. Manually pulling the toggle back can get you into trouble, as I found out. This will cycle another BB into the mechanism, even though there is already one in there. I had a bad session where the blowback wasn't working well (bad co2?) and was manually cocking it. This left numerous BBs floating around in the inner works, which caused the gun to operate very poorly. I learned that if you need to manually cock it, you need to first remove the magazine and shake out the BB already loaded. (2) the magazine is awful. I don't know why they couldn't use the same magazine as the non-blowback version. You have to hold the spring back while dropping the BBs in the tiny hole one by one. Definitely need a speed loader here. (3) the blowback is so pronounced, it obliterates the view of the target, so I can't see where the BBs go. (4) The blowback eats CO2 like crazy.

    What others should know:

    The accuracy of this gun is terrible, as expected from a smooth-bore short-barreled BB gun. This makes it fit for short-range plinking and that's about it. Frankly, neither this gun nor the non-blowback version lived up to their promise. The non-blowback version is perfect except for the miserable trigger pull. The blowback version solves that problem but introduces a bunch more new issues, as noted above.

    Hello again, well, it's as real as it gets. Going on almost a month now, I'll stand by what my earlier post said! It's a great ,fun peice of history. Oil everything that moves, or rubs, I've got no complaints!. Fifteen to twenty feet the sites are on the mark!. HEY!!! It's a BB gun! Keep in mind what it is Close range fun, the blow back is a real kick! Just cool, n lots of fun

    Things I would have changed:

    If you have to have, go online and get some wood grips if it makes ya feel better, won't change how it shoots. Mines ,,,I dare say perfect, but darn I can't think of anything, I'd change, for the money, for what it is ? If it ain't broke don't fix it!... Be safe and enjoy it!!...

    Safety, safety, safety. Be smart, these are NOT. A CHEAP Toy. They only do ,what you make them do. So know your back stop, n be safe and have fun! Happy fourth of July to all!

    Just about everything ! The weight is so realistic. The appearance is just awesome. It is easy to load Co2 and ammo. I love the blowback action !

    Things I would have changed:

    Rifling in the barrel might have helped the accuracy, but I am sure that would cause a price increase.

    What others should know:

    Great buy. I have no regrets at all. This is definitely becoming my favorite pistol to shoot.

    The exterior looks very realistic, it feels great.

    Things I would have changed:

    I broke the gun within the first twenty minutes, I cocked the gun, then I tried to release the action, it would not return to its original position. I glanced at the frame and notice the semi/full positioning lever as I gently pulled out on it popped out, this is where I ran into trouble --- there was a little plastic pin that broke off... Now the gun might have performed perfectly if I didn't get in a hurry! If you know where I turn it in to be repaired, I would love to have it operational

    What others should know:

    I have several air guns and they all operate fantastically and a lot cheaper than my other weapons
