Things I liked:

Well, I nearly fell into the pellet gun rookie mistake. (I have twelve air pistols. Most in the $300 - $500 range. Shame on me for being impatient.) The first 50 - 80 shots were spread out haphazardly all over the 8" circumference of the target. I would shoot for the bullseye and hit the far top right or the far lower left. The gun was not just erratic, it seemed about as accurate as throwing a handful of pellets against the wall. My first thought: I got a lemon - return it. Then I remembered that break-in periods for air pistols take a few days, a few weeks, sometimes 500 - 1000 pellets. So I relaxed and shot about 200 more. Now the gun is hitting the center. Some tight groups. Others off a little. I'm using a Walther red dot, a vast improvement over the gun's natural sights. It's finally calming down, getting more accurate. My 4 star accuracy rating can change over the next few days/weeks. MY MESSAGE TO YOU: give the gun a chance to get a feel for itself. And a feel for you, too.

Things I would have changed:

A small thing: when you hold the gun in your hand (which feels great by the way. You get a nice, comfortable grip on it.) the plastic grip creaks a little due to the space between the inside layer of plastic and the magazine. When I am shooting, I don't notice it. Although it is innovative design, not wild about the mag design. Takes a lot of handling to load the pellet mag and load the CO2. Pellet mags should be sold separately instead of having to buy the whole mag/CO2 sheebang. But you know. overall, it is a nice shooting gun. For me it is all about accuracy. I am a target shooter not a tin can abuser. My accuracy will improve as the gun matures and as I become more accustomed to shooting a blowback. And I am 63 - a little shakier than I used to be.

What others should know:

Bottom line - take the leap if you're finding yourself constantly coming back to SA10 page. If the plastic grip was metal, the gun would weight twice as much. This SA10 will really grown on you. I am glad I bought it and stuck with it.

Things I liked:

Super realistic blowback. Gun just looks cool.

Things I would have changed:

The thing starts to jam after a while. And when it jams, it destroys the 8-round clip. WHY IS THERE NO OPTION TO BUY REPLACEMENT 8-ROUND ROTARY CLIPS??

What others should know:

Okay airgun enthusiasts, I absolutely sung the praises for this gun for quite a long time. It has many amazing things to like about it. But the one deal-breaker disadvantage which renders this gun a paperweight is the fact that NO ONE SELLS THE 8-ROUND ROTARY CLIPS! YOU MUST PURCHASE A NEW MAGAZINE TO GET MORE CLIPS! I started having pellet jams after awhile. And clearing jams with this gun is a serious matter of trial-and-error. When a pellet jams stuck, you have little other option but to wiggle back and forth the rotary clip till it allows the clip to drop free. And in the process, the little 8-round clip more often than not, severs in-between the pellet casing, thus rendering the clip useless. Once you rack up enough broken rotary clips, you have no other recourse but to buy a whole new magazine. You cannot just but the cheap little clips. I've searched high and low. I refuse to buy a THIRD magazine. I am left with a VERY EXPENSIVE PAPERWEIGHT.

    Things I would have changed:

    Only thing I didn't like was the weak slide spring. The slide moved if I shook the gun up and down. So I replaced it with a stronger spring and it was fixed . The gun still works perfectly.

    Things I liked:

    The weight and handling of this weapon is fantastic! I recommend seating the pellets for better power and less jamming. The fps is definitely decent for a blow-back pistol. Trigger pull is good, realistic drop out clip is nice, threaded barrel has so many possibilities!! Picatinny rail is a nice touch.

    Things I would have changed:

    2 piece grips would be nice, would allow for upgrading to wood or rubber, think I might get a Hogue wrap-around grip for it. Tritium dot on front blade would be awesome. Adjustable rear sight would help accuracy immensely!! Just saying! Really don't have any serious gripes with this weapon. The safety was very difficult to slide at first, but loosened up after a bit. Might just be a fluke. I have owned and do own a lot of different airguns, have to say this is one of my favorites!

    What others should know:

    For the price-point, it is one of the better guns out there. You won't be disappointed! My last purchase was the SIG Sauer X-Five ASP, and I was so extremely disappointed with that gun!! The fit and finish and overall quality of the SA-10 is not as good as the Sig Sauer or some other pistols, but the performance makes up for any aesthetic downfalls.

    Things I liked:

    Its durable and easy to handle. Shoots fairly accurate and easy to load. The magazines can be swapped out fairly as well.

    Things I would have changed:

    the magazines could hold the ammo (especially the BB's) a little tighter.

    What others should know:

    It did NOT come with CO2 cartridge or ammo. I thought that was kind of cheesy and cheap of the dealer

    Things I liked:

    Shoots multiple types of ammo well: pellets, lead BBs, lead balls. Nice blowback, crisp and tactile. Cool styling modeled after Salient Arms. Accuracy is good. Especially for a blowback, mainly due to rifled barrel and use of pellets. I like the spurless hammer. Good trigger. You have to get used to a long trigger reset so that you can allow for the manipulation of the rotary magazine but the single action is quite nice. Nice heft. Feels like a real polymer frame/ metal slide firearm in weight and balance. Reminds me of a Sig Sauer or H&K. Full drop out magazine. Unique design with the 3 rotary clips. A lot of fun. I have put around 1,000 rounds through it so far without a single jam. It is reliable and fun. I get about 10 clips (8 shots per clip) on one CO2 or about 80 shots. Thats good for a blowback that shoots around 400 FPS. The price is actually really good. A solid performance for under $100 is a real deal in blowback CO2 action pistols. I would recommend.

    Things I would have changed:

    Honestly cant think of much to change. At first I was thinking make the rotary clips out of metal, but thinking it through, the plastic material is perhaps what allows for multiple types of ammo to be held in place by tension.

    What others should know:

    Ive owned 3 blowback CO2 pistols. I have had the Walther PPKs, the Tanfoglio Witness 1911, and now this SA10. Blowbacks will eventually fail, break, etc, due to the abuse they take by the operation of the reciprocating slide. But the fun factor and realism is worth it to me. And every time one fails, I get to them purchase and try something different. Its hard to say how long any individual gun will last. It depends how often you shoot. But they seem to have a lifespan of 5 to 10 thousand rounds in my experience. So, for me that might be 2 years or so as I shoot very often. About 5 days/week on average. This SA-10 seems solid so far and I am hoping for at least 2 years out of it.

    Things I liked:

    Styling and feel are great. As stated elsewhere, it's not a replica of anything specific, but I think it looks very good. I enjoy having the complete ammunition system (projectile and propellant) in the drop-out magazine. Warning text is present but discreet, which is nice. Despite what I mention in the third section below, I really do like this pistol. Since this is my first pistol I can't really vouch for the accuracy as most of the errors are probably me. For what it's worth: it will keep all the shots on a letter size paper (8.5" x 11") at 10 yards (meters) range.

    Things I would have changed:

    Serious: (1) Slide spring and buffer length and/or placement can lead to slide jamming (see third section of comments). I am not sure whether this was just my specimen, or if it is a wide-spread issue. (2) Safety would be a little easier to operate one-handed if located farther back. Wishful thinking: I've been trying to think of ways (1) to have the sub-magazine driven by the slide instead of the trigger for a shorter trigger pull, and (2) to feed pellets in a spring follower type of magazine instead of rotary so that this could hold open on last shot. However, If the R&D teams at Umarex, Crossman, Sig, etc. haven't overcome these technical challenges yet, I doubt I will any time soon. Still, an engineer can dream ...

    What others should know:

    If you have slide jamming problems, don't despair. Serial number 20E06409 has either tolerance stack-up trouble, or an incorrect nominal design length for certain components leading to the slide traveling too far back on a shot, essentially straying into the take-down zone, despite the take-down lever being firmly in the locked position. This allows the slide to pop up at the rear and jam, preventing it from returning forward. To fix it, I padded the rear end of the guide rod sub-assembly with thin brass plates so that the entire rod and spring assembly sat about 1/16" - 1/8" farther forward. This still allows field stripping, but in normal use it halts the slide farther forward while the retainer rails are still engaged. I recommend a single piece of brass if you can, and epoxy it in place - CA glue can fail and let the spacer shift and jam on the take-down lever. An alternative fix might have been a washer in front of the slide spring, fitting over the guide rod.

    Things I liked:

    The weight, the feel, the sounds of the gun as you release or insert the magazines. Holding this gun in your hand just makes you happy. The only thing better than the things I just mentioned has to be the way it shoots. Wow. Incredibly accurate at 8 yards. Free hand I shot the center out of an 8 Inch target with 32 rounds. Most were inside the second ring or better.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rotary holders in the magazine are a little loose. Sometimes the rotators fall out as you pick up the magazine. Definitely not a deal breaker. Simply an observation. Don't yank the magazine around and its fine.

    What others should know:

    I own 14 airgun pistols. This gun is going to be my favorite for feel and accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    I'm not so into blowback or bling, but seeing others' feedback I felt this would be worth a chance. The build quality is very good, slide action is smooth. I get 60-70 rds from a cartridge, which isn't bad considering it's powering the slide action too. Having the rail on the bottom is nice - I already have a laser on order for it. I'm shooting Crosman 7.9gr Premier Lights (PY-P-118) and they seem to be a good fit, though I will experiment with other types in my inventory.

    Things I would have changed:

    There were videos online showing how to field strip, but those aren't working for me. Not a problem, as I don't see a need right now to go there. Maybe after a few thousand rds it will work more easily. It would have been nice for this sort of maintenance information to be in the instruction manual. My gun seemed to be shooting about 4" to the right at 7 yds, so an adjustment for windage would be helpful. Elevation was dead on.

    What others should know:

    I am one extremely happy camper with this airgun. Enough that I've already gotten two of my friends interested in getting the same thing. If you're loving it enough to share with your friends, it can't be bad!

    Things I liked:

    Interesting looks good and recoils well it is relatively accurate when it works.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would start with changing the engineering dept. the pawl that rotates the Magazines is too small and fails to rotate magazine the magazines also need to be able to hold the pellet, many pellets get deformed as the pawl moves the magazine a bit but does not index and fails to let pellet enter chamber. both the pawl and magazines need to be redesigned.

    What others should know:

    Mine was not worth the money I it worked OK the first month . I practice a lot. the lever (pawl) that rotates the soft plastic magazine is too small and skips the magazines do not rotate. it is very finicky as to pellets it likes, only wad cutters seem to work that are large enough to fit snugly in the rotating magazine when they work at all.
