A good heavyweight pistol.
About 70 -80 rounds per CO2 cylinder but the drop off in power and impact point is noticeable in the last 30 rounds, especially if repeat firing.
Seems very accurate for a 4" barrel, but I find vertical variation greater than usual for competition pistols, though thats my poor shooting I guess. The fully adjustable sights make a great difference to accuracy and precision.
At 15 metres a 2" group is reasonably easy to achieve once you've got used to the sighting.
Black plastic pistol grips are a bit fiddly to put back on. - Wooden ones look better
Standard sights are adjustable but fiddly, best consign to bin.
I put the fully adjustable sights on which are much better.
A friend uses a red dot sight and finds it very accurate, though very ugly!
Magazines look like they are zinc die cast so I expect to see indexing problems in the future as the ratchet mech wears. Replacements are cheap and easily obtainable.
I paid over the odds in my local gunsmith but online shopping makes this very good value and lots of fun.
Looks very good and very much like a firearm, so don't go waving it around unless you want to arouse unrequired interest from the local constabulary. (My neighbours were a bit concerned when I was setting up the sight in my back yard).
Comes in own carry case, well packed for transport and carrying. Handy space for 2 gas cans, 500 pellets and 2 magazines.
