Things I liked:

Lots of fun destroying beer cans. Good value. Have only shot about 1000 Rnds. and used six CO2's so far, and am looking forward to next trip out to to the desert. Gonna mount a BSA red dot next. I know longer envy my friend's IZH Drozd, and best yet ?....no battery's required

Things I would have changed:

Can't really think of anything. Well thought out design.

What others should know:

As the CO2 pressure gets low/empty, my gun seems to go into a full auto mode and you see the BBs barely making it out.. Not to worry. Time for fresh cartridges.

Things I liked:

Had to return the item.

Things I would have changed:

Had to return the item because it would only shoot bursts no single shot. BBs very difficult to fill the 30 round feed.

What others should know:

Pyramid was great handling the return!

    Things I liked:

    The gun is a lot of fun. I think it was a good value.

    Things I would have changed:

    The loading door under the front sight comes open easily and your BBs fall out when you set the gun down. It needs a latch or detent to keep it closed. I fixed it with a rubber band. No big deal. But without something to hold the loading port closed you will loose lots of BBs.

    What others should know:

    It's a great value and a lot of fun. It shoots hard and is accurate enough to plink with out to 15 yards. It does not go through gas as fast as I expected. 2 cylinders will shoot 300 shots. When the gas gets low it fires six round bursts. You know when you are running out of gas when you are on semi auto and it fires six rounds each pull.

    Things I liked:

    Pretty accurate for a smooth bore. Quick and easy to refill bbs. Came with nice green dot scope. One of my favorite guns.

    Things I would have changed:

    All plastic. Would be nice for it to be metal. This is my second one. Reservoir spring bent on the first one. They do not offer a replacement.

    What others should know:

    Take it slow and easy when reloading the reservoir.

    Things I liked:

    The 6 shot burst is pretty cool, it's also pretty accurate, I was actually surprised by the true grouping of the 6 shots.

    Things I would have changed:

    The feed mag is too small, 6 shot or "full auto" rips through the internal mag too fast, limited shots equal limited enjoyment, it has a 300 (give or take) shot hold internally why not make it "hopper fed" out of the hold instead of filling the internal limited shot mag.? The bbs. Are already in the gun... also I thought the "steal storm" would have a little more steal in the storm lol it feels kinda brittle, also with 2 co2's in it I would figure it would have more fps,

    What others should know:

    It's an accurate 6 shot-burst or single shot, and is a very fun air rifle, crazzzy how much a plinker can make you smile...though it is not full auto the 6 shots come out very fast...

    Things I liked:

    This thing is fun. Seriously fun. The 6 round burst is awesome. I am VERY impressed with the fact that I get 300 shots from 2X CO2 cartridges.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish it loaded the firing magazine better. The shaking to get it loaded up is a bit unusual.

    What others should know:

    This is a BB gun, so don't expect any kind of accuracy past 15 yards. It is just fun to shoot at random stuff. The velocity is relatively high so be careful of ricochets when firing at solid targets. Everyone who shoots this will have a smile on their face.

    Things I liked:

    You can't really have more fun than this. I bought two of these and converted them to full auto and put a green laser on one and a red laser on the other. MERRY CHRISTMAS! BAMMMMO 60 ROUNDS AT LIKE 425FPS BEFORE YOU CAN BLINK if you don't smile you are probably a lizard clone. Wickedly accurate in single fire mode too. You can just sit there and shoot until the can is fragments

    Things I would have changed:

    double size clip with 4 CO2 cartridges and maybe some kind of heating element or insulation to keep the cartridges from freezing up during bursts (now i'm getting crazy)

    What others should know:

    Always Wear Safety Glasses, if you go full auto you are eventually gonna have some fliers ricochet!!!! these are near me at all times

    Things I liked:

    Talking about fun, I haven't had this much fun with a BB gun since my very first BB gun the Red Rider.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would have been really cool to have more metal parts, not for it to be more durable but better looking.

    What others should know:

    They seem to be very accurate right out of the box, so add what every accessories you want and just zero them to the hard open sights and your right on target.

    Things I liked:

    Easy to load and use, it has worked flawlessly since day one. Much, much more accurate than my other two pistols that i have that are the same type. And the big thing is that everyone in my family after shooting it has a big smile on their face and nothing but positive comments.

    Things I would have changed:

    Absolutely nothing..

    What others should know:

    I have been using light oil with just a dab on the end of each powerlet and have not had any problems..

    Things I liked:

    Wow! What an amazing evolution of a BB machine gun! I've had and enjoyed the Schmeisser MP-40 for a while now, but the Steel Storm lives up to its name. While serving in the military years ago I had occasion to fire an Israeli Uzi. The short throw firing delivered an amazing volume of firepower. The Steel Storm has that same characteristic. A high volume of BB power...plus, it delivers that BB power with a loud, distinctive staccato sound like a rapid firing automatic weapon. There is a switched safety and a single shot/automatic fire selector switch. What sets the Steel Storm apart from the MP-40 is the reservoir of 300 BBs in the weapon. A simple roll of the wrist reloads an onboard magazine and you're back in action. A pair of CO2 cylinders effectively power the weapon. Changing them out is effortless and quick. I like this weapon a lot. The rabbits, raccoons, and coyotes do not.

    Things I would have changed:

    Trying hard to come up with any shortcomings for the Steel Storm. Perhaps offering a second, backup CO2 "magazine" would be useful. That way, you'd pop out the expended CO2 holder and pop a charged CO2 holder in and be back in action quickly.

    What others should know:

    The price is right. The Fun Ratio is high. The only question is...do you have enough ammo and CO2?
