I've had several other air pistols and this one is hands down my favorite! I've had one since the late '80's, and just bought a second one. They're the best all-around pellet pistol there is, it has good power, is quiet, accurate, and it's really small! I can put it in my pants pocket with the grip hanging out, in my jacket pocket, or in my tackle box when I go fishing, try that with a typical spring gun which are usually another 5 or so inches long. This gun has good looks, easy to cock/load, and will probably outlast you. My original still shoots like new and shows very little internal/mechanical wear. The oem plastic grips are the only real negative I have for it, they're not terrible but they seem out of place on such a rugged gun. I put wood grips (Beeman Combat grips)on my original one, now it looks and feels so much better. I also added trigger shoe which are nice, feels good, and makes the trigger pull feel less than half what was. It may not look that great in the picture here, but when you have it in your hands(especially with the wood grips)you can tell right away it's a well built and rugged gun that's made to be used and not let you down like most short lived pellet pistols.
I wish other mfg's would follow the barrel over the tube design because it makes all the difference in looks and size.
The only advice I'd have is to be sure you keep the cocking slot and linkage assy greased because there's a lot of friction there and if it goes dry it can wear the linkage quickly. Otherwise it's very low maintenance and should never need to be repaired. Even with the expensive price tag it's well worth it, and I've proven that with buying a second one.
