Things I liked:

looks cool, lots of options for accessories, fairly accurate, just fun

Things I would have changed:

nothing

What others should know:

First I want to mention I read a couple reviews elsewhere on this item and both said the gun exploded when it was fired. When I received mine the first thing I did was check the pistol insertion and it was done wrong from the factory. The rail of the pistol should be inserted into the slot in the converter and mine was slid on top. Had I fired it without inserting it properly it would have blown the front off so please inspect before you fire any weapon. I'm sure it was just an oversight and I emailed Umarex about it and they seemed nice. Shooting this gun is very fun especially with a nice red dot and maybe a laser sight. I get decent accuracy but this gun seems to have more fliers than some of my other guns. I like the all metal, easy to load magazine it shares with the beretta elite II. The trigger isn't great it's a little heavy and has a long travel, but the break is crisp. This is because of the way it moves the barrel forward to pick up the BB but it makes it a little less enjoyable than some other guns with smoother triggers.

Things I liked:

I like the folding stock and forward grip.

Things I would have changed:

The gun needs better sights and a more accurate pistol. I'm not sure if I got a bad one or not but all my paper targets looked like a shot gun pattern, just all over the place.

What others should know:

I returned the gun after having no luck with the accuracy. I know the gun is cheap but I still expected better accuracy. I used to own a cheap daisy bb c02 gun that had much better accuracy than this thing for less money.

    Things I liked:

    The size is right. The pistol fits without any rattling nor looseness. I recommend removing pistol from housing. Check both out making sure the retaining plate is secured. The pistol is strong. Great fun.

    Things I would have changed:

    I prefer a full magazine with CO2 type pistol. The small magazine are okay but I broke two sitting on them. Where a magazine of a non blowback type would work. I have not attempted to install a different type non blowback pistol because I have seen the holes blow out above the barrel of the carbine. Not difficult to repair hole if you know what your doing. I acquired five carbine housings all withholds at the front above the barrel where the pistol was not inserted correctly. The retaining plate folds down I think if you made slots on the inside and pin it so it can slide back and lock to allow for different size nine blowback pistols used with it. I feel this would give shooters an opportunity to use another gun at their leisure and make the carbine more adversible.

    What others should know:

    It's fun to shoot.

    Things I liked:

    Compact yet powerful. This is a great addition to my collection. The price? Can't go wrong and, the quality, far exceeded my expectations for such a low price. Shoot as a carbine or, remove the pistol, and shoot as a handgun. Rails to add electronic sight or a scope. Side rails for flashlights or laser dot.

    Things I would have changed:

    Adding a button hinge to the fold out stock. As there is one on the forgrip to foldback.

    What others should know:

    Get one. You won't be disappointed.

    Things I liked:

    Umarex quality and is a cool upgrade for the XBG pistol. Plus my paper targets etc. fear me even more now when it comes out. And with my marksman skills I need it. I been getting paper cuts from my targets and I know that it is has been deliberate on THEIR part! This now gives me that Macho Edge I've needed. Its funny, havent had a cut since I been using it. LOL. Folding stock is nice too. When everything is folded up on it, it still looks great and still shoots nicely! And it came in a box, not clamshell packaging. And shooting John Wayne style from the hip and hitting your intended target is nice also. Even though I have to stand IN the barn, Im hitting it just like the The Duke now.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wont get critical about it. I just wanted some bling for the Great as is, XBG pistol. It delivers that for me.

    What others should know:

    The kit when purchased as a whole, (XBG pistol AND converter) only come with the ONE adapter to mount only the XBG model itself. I wouldve liked the other adapters so I could mount my Crosman C11 in it from time to time, but from what Im finding out those other adapters come only with the Converter Kit only (minus the XBG pistol), so just know that. I would like to get those adapters down the road. Its like 5 different models can go into this platform if you have those adapters that only come with the shroud itself. Im liking it a lot and am happy with my purchase! And my voice sounds deeper when Im using it. (Bonus!)

    Things I liked:

    Its a tactical adapter for the xbg, which it comes with. High shot counts. Fairly accurate at 12 yards. The removable foregrip.

    Things I would have changed:

    Include all adapters in this package.

    What others should know:

    Be careful opening the folding stock the first couple times. Its very tight, and the picatinny rail edges are sharp. Not once, but 3 times i ripped open the knuckle of my thumb unfolding the stock.

    Things I liked:

    The value and quality of the item. Also that you can ad different attachments as well as remove the pistol completely.

    Things I would have changed:

    The only thing I would change is the how the clip needs to be fed the BBs

    Things I liked:

    It's incredibly comfortable, the sights are nice, and the pistol is surprisingly solid.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish it had the sliding bolt attachment for use with a blowback pistol.

    What others should know:

    If you want to use it with only one gun, then this one is for you. But if you desire using it with other compatible pistols, there is another kit by the same company with more parts. One gun I would recommend for this kit is the H&K USP blowback pistol by Umarex.

    Things I liked:

    Compact,tactical,inexpensive and fun to shoot

    Things I would have changed:

    This thing is loud, like other reviewers have stated if you think you're going to be wanting to fire more than 3 magazines you're going to want to have ear pro because your ears will be ringing. I was shocked on how loud this is when situated in the carbine shell.... I would also provide an option to purchase the attachments in order to utilize this has the converter version...also I would like them to try to make something like this a little bit more accurate

    What others should know:

    Definitely gives you a tactical feel and thankfully the magazines included are heavy and made of metal it feels light without feeling cheap.... But I warn you again about the report, it's going to ring your bell after a few magazines without ear protection.... Also don't try to remove the magazine while it's loaded the mechanism automatically puts a BB in the chamber when you see the magazine so when you try to remove it 1bb will fall free every time you remove the magazine. So finish the magazine or lose ammunition

    This girl is loud to shoot! Don't even try and use the back sight, just sight off the front one. Get extra mags!! Good and accurate out to about 20 to 25 ft. Good grouping at that range, an occasional flyer. Get a laser sight or a red dot scope and rock an roll! Buy it!!

    Rating 2.02.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    Unique: There's not a lot of inexpensive CO2 guns like this with all of the customization options that the T.A.C. has. Fun: There's just some simple silly fun in letting all of those BB's go flying into tin cans, plastic bottles, or clay targets in a hurry. This little carbine can do it fast and reasonably accurate in a plinking setting. Lots of accessory rails: You could go wild with mounting stuff on this thing! Economical: The price is cheap and well worth the small expense for the fun this provides.

    Things I would have changed:

    Sights: The actual sights are terrible to the point of being useless. The perspective is all off due to the distance between the front and rear sights, the distance to your eyes, and the fact that neither front nor rear have fiber optics, so for me the sights were easy to blend in to dark targets (on top of already fighting my eyes wanting to blur out either the front or rear depending on my focus). You need to budget for a red dot ASAP. Noise: My example was louder than every other CO2 or spring piston gun I have. In my neighborhood, it's fine due to my next door neighbors knowing what's going on and being 100% ok with it (it's still quieter than his hot rod he tinkers with, or the other neighbor's motorcycle he tunes so often), despite the nicer area we're in. However, if noise is a concern for you, this will attract attention especially when you fire the whole clip quickly. It's quite loud in my garage shooting range.

    What others should know:

    You buy this little convertible carbine for fun, pure and simple. It will not place shots into the bulls eye well, but it can keep hitting tin cans and water bottles consistently and offer genuine entertainment for anyone who picks it up. My wife got a kick out of it, and I haven't grown tired of it myself. The sights are horrendous and the gun is loud, but is a ton of fun for the money. I'd give it a complete recommendation!

    Things I liked:

    Just got this a few days ago, put a Leapers red dot on it and it really hits.

    Things I would have changed:

    Furnish all the various adapters in the XBG kit.

    What others should know:

    I already have an XBG pistol and really like it, that is why I bought the kit. I had intended to put a Smith & Wesson M&P 40 in the carbine adapter because I figured it shot a little harder. I'm not so sure it does with the pistol furnished. The pistol furnished shoots real hard so I will just be happy with it. Yesterday I took several shots at a 12 oz soda can at appx. 25 yards ... I hit it several times. I sighted the Red Dot in for 10 yards and it seems to be back on at 25. Oh yeah, this thing is loud. I think because the report from the pistols discharge echos through the carbine case. It gives the impression you are shooting a blow back action. Very cool! As always ... Pyramyd is #1 !!!!!!!
