The a-3000 fits my hand, points very well and looks like it is designed after many of the later auto loading firearms although not a true replica of any.  It is nearly all plastic with a few metal parts thrown in where needed for strength.  The pistol has quite a few more parts than most airguns but comes apart easily just by pushing out a few pins.  The gun is a bit fussy on how the co2 carts are installed and it is easy to not tighten them up correctly and waste the whole cart when the piercing lever is pushed in.  I purchased my A-3000 used so expected it might have problems from the start which it did. I had to completely tear it down and repair the valve stem seat.  After that I found that one of the mags did not werq well and loading either in the gun had a trick to it.  I had to pull the hammer or slide back just slightly to release the magazine or it just would not come out.  Once I figured that out and learned the correct tension to install the carts with the gun ran near perfect.  28 shots as fast as I could pull the trigger. Velocity was in the high 300 fps to low 400s with the lighter wad cutter pellets depending on how cold  the gun got while shooting rapidly. The trigger is not the greatest a bit of a long pull and heavier than I would like but quite usable.  Accuracy is OK for what it is I shot near 2 inch groups for the most part at 10 meters. This is definitely a fun can plinker like the Crosman 600 although not as accurate or hard hitting but with many more shots on hand.  The only jamming I incurred was when I shot the cart to low or ran out of gas.  I found I could not quite get through two full mags without having to put and fresh cart in mid 40 shots was about it.

Should have been suspicious when an acquaintance actually gave me this gun at no cost.Found out why very quickly. The magazine is poorly designed and the gun is a serious ruster. You’d be better off grabbing a handful of pellets and throwing them at the target. That way some might actually hit it.

I found this to be a very bad hand gun .

I wasted 9 out of 10 CO2 carteidges trying to load them .

The trigger would not return fully without forcing it back .

Overall , I was fortunate that the gun shop took it back .

If you want to waste money buy this gun .

Fortunitly it stuffed up on me the first 5 mins I got it alowing me to get a full refund .

It jammed up and the gas is imossble to apply proply.

I didnt even get a chance to shoot it as it wouldnt let me , not even once.

I dont want people to make the same mistake of buying this gun getting home all excited only to have brought a worthless pieace of metal as it is a seriously dishartning and painful exsperince.

Not too bad for a .77 it does jam a lot though, you can empty the mag in about 2 seconds, fairly accurate and powerfull

Built like a tank. Fits the hand well but, can’t cock the hammer back with one hand for single action shooting. Double action pull is too long and too heavy. Reasonably accurate. Hi-Cap (28 rd.) mag. is nice and innovative but, one of the two that came with the gun was broken (looks like the screws were over tightened at the factory) and jams the gun up everytime I try to use it.

Over all I’d say over priced for what ya get.
