Things I liked:

I collect Makarov firearms and air pistols, and this is the nicest air pistol version of the gun. The finish on the metal is flawless, and the gun feels like the real deal in your hand. It's a very realistic copy of the firearm. Anyone would be proud to own this pistol. And the accuracy is stunning. It shoots like a pellet pistol, rather than a BB pistol. And it shoots right to the point of aim.

Things I would have changed:

I wouldn't change a thing! This gun cannot be made to have blowback, so there is no sense asking for it. That would take a complete redesign. But as a shooter, there aren't many BB pistols that can beat it.

What others should know:

I got 86 good shots from a single CO2 Powerlet. That was by waiting 10 seconds between shots. If you are shooting for accuracy, that's easy to do. If you shoot faster, expect fewer shots per cartridge. I found Daisy zinc-plated BBs to be the most accurate. And don't forget to always put a drop of Crosman Pellgunoil on the tip of each new CO2 cartridge before puncturing it.

Things I liked:

Its very similar to my REAL Makarov

Things I would have changed:

It is very sloppy and flew apart on the 8th shot, does not go back together easily

What others should know:

In my opinion it may be dangerous. Do not purchase this BB Pistol IT DOES NOT STAY ASSEMBLED. I have purchased other guns from here and am pleased with them.

    Things I liked:

    Fun factor, multiple magazines on each cartridge, blow back operation, weight and feel

    Things I would have changed:

    Magazine and release are flimsy. I would pay more for a better magazine system, fixed sights were off (high left).

    What others should know:

    Well worth the price point. Just a blast to shoot and you will need extra BBs.

    Things I liked:

    The attention to detail is very good. Has a nice feel. It's accurate as long as you keep the distance realistic. My son can get close to 90- 100 shots on one co2 cartridge.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing I would change about the pistol.

    What others should know:

    For the price you can't beat it.

    Things I liked:

    I like how simple the firing mechanism is, the construction quality along with the realism, and it's all metal! nice..

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish it stopped firing after 18 shots, but counting works that out, you just lose gas on empty shots otherwise..

    What others should know:

    Buy lots of bbs and co2 cartridges, because it's so fun to shoot you'll have trouble putting it down :D

    Things I liked:

    This is one of my favorites. Small and easy to shoot using both single and double action. It is very accurate ant a pleasure to shoot. There is not a blow back feature but foe me that was OK. However, you can cock it like a blow back pistol. Buy one and enjoy it.

    It's a clone of a real firearm.

    Poor clone in my opinion. Doesn't blow back and plastic feel.

    Things I liked:

    Construction is mostly metal, so has a solid feel. Accuracy is sufficient to hit pop cans at 25 feet or so if you do your part. Will fire single or double action. However, since the slide does not cycle when fired it is necessary to thumb-cock the hammer for every shot if you want to shoot single action. Or, just pull the trigger for each shot as in normal double action.The trigger pull quality is OK but not real smooth. It actually works pretty well double action for hitting cans. The magazine has a locked position on the magazine follower so you can load the BB's without continually holding the follower down against spring pressure. This is a nice feature. The sights were right on for windage but it does shoot a little high. If you aim at the bottom of a can you will hit the top, at least for me at 25 feet. So the sights are usable. I am getting about 70 shots per CO2 cartridge. Feeding with Umarex BB's is pretty good. Have not had any jams so far in about 300 shots.

    Things I would have changed:

    The thumb screw which you turn to pierce the CO2 cartridge is made of plastic, one of very few non-metal parts. I am hopeful that this plastic thumbscrew will last. Would feel better if it was metal.

    What others should know:

    I feel that this pistol is well worth the $60 price. The pistol comes in a box with attractive graphics. It is a good place to store the pistol, as opposed to guns coming in that miserable plastic clamshell which is difficult to open and gives you no place to store the gun. I have not chronographed it yet but it penetrates both sides of an aluminum can at 25 feet or so, so no ricochets. However, always wear eye protection! I describe the sound level as moderate.

    Nice heft, solid action, feels good in the hand.

    Things I would have changed:

    Jams ALL THE TIME! Cannot get through a single magazine without multiple BBs jamming in the barrel. This is a terrible pistol.

    Things I liked:

    Realistic feel and weight. Lots of fun and plenty accurate for kicking cans around at 7-10 yds.

    Things I would have changed:

    The sights are horrible. Narrow and shallow. The gun shoot 3" high at about 10yds. It would be nice to know if there are replacement sights or other easy fix.

    What others should know:

    Except for the sights, the gun is a bargain and lots of fun.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate replica. Shoots great with good grouping and right on target.

    Things I would have changed:

    Slider is a bit sloppy, not that it affects anything, as it carries no functionality ( NBB) other than cocking, if you wish to do so. But it's sloppiness is due to not good enough internal engineering. Slide does not go back too much, so when you field strip it you need a bigger angle to take the slider out and to achieve that you need a bigger hole in a slider. Not relevant anyway for the price point.

    What others should know:

    This gun is very accurate. Shot from 7 meters and got a great grouping ( within a quarter size) and all in black dot area ( also about quarter size). For example, I also have Makarov from KWC, blowback version, beautiful and super realistic, but it shoots more than 2 inches lower and a little to the side, and it's ridiculous, I have to file the sights now to make it more less comparable. The same thing with my Beretta 92, shoots even worse and costs more than twice as much. So all in all, great little pistol, I got 2 more mags, that are super easy to load, shot about 500 rounds from one of them and all good with no malfunction. I'm using Hornady Black Diamond BB. I noticed that somehow cheaper pistols tend to be more accurate - this Makarov, Walther PPK, Ace in the hole ( only 4 in barrel), Remington 1911 that I got on sale for $69, they all shoot better than even my $300 made in Germany Beretta...Go figure.

    Things I liked:

    I like the overall quality and value for the money. Also, the functional slide is a good feature, especially for training. The power level is higher than the PPK I bought (but I really like both guns). At the range, the accuracy was quite good, with a bull's-eye target at eight to ten yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much, maybe make the stock (grips) look a little more like wood.

    What others should know:

    Overall, it is a really good value for the money and a lot of fun to shoot.
