“ a good entry level pistol”

Written on: 26/11/2016 by chaz1888 (9 reviews written)

My brother got this new a while ago and I guess found it not to his liking, which was good for me! as I was up for a trade! it's a pistol I wanted to try.
The pistol is mainly polymer even the main cylinder! but don't be put off by that as it has reasonable strength, and plastics do have good property's, there are metal components within the design being things like pin's, springs, parts of the cocking bar, sear and barrel and within the IGT system, which use's a sealed gas filled chamber as a spring medium, this system will be very consistent and give long lasting power and is a nice thing too find in such a entry level gun, it is also a smoother action for when firing the gun being less jarring on discharge.
Cocking the gun is fairly easy but the barrel is short meaning you find your hand pressing on the fore sight, I had to adapted my technique to avoid this, and you can feel some flex in the handle when cocking, it dose not seem a problem but only time will tell if it causes stress around the fixings.
Firing is enjoyable! the trigger has no adjustment but is good, you can feel the two stage's and nothing is heavy putting your aim out, the sights are basic with a true glow up front and a simple notched plate at the rear with only side adjustment, its also bright yellow! which I was not sure about but makes sense when in use, also the cross bar safety is nice and positive, the grip is fairly good but a little wide and short for my hand but with some use you find a good position and it feels comfortable and the only niggles here are some flashing on the trigger and grip that can feel rough and need cleaning up.
Accuracy is surprisingly good out to 10m, power is constant but low so a good plinker and paper puncher and fine for short ranges but nothing more, after some weeks of use I'm taken with it, it being a nice looking pistol that thankfully dose look like an air gun, good power system, barrel and trigger pull, down side is a bit of rough flashing and that bit of flex in the chassis, however over all a nice simple slick pistol that is enjoyable.
