This is the fifth air pistol I have purchased. I own a Beeman P1, sold a RWS Model 6M to buy a Model 10, only to find out it’s no longer available and since my youth one Daisey & Crossman 357. I never intended to be a competitive shooter just a plinker. However I am more than pleased with this pistol, and I love it’s looks.

From a bench rest this thing will put 5 shots inside a dime for me. Sure it has its faults as earlier reviews mention, but it ain’t a FEINWERKBAU. If you want one of them come up with another $1000.

This was my first target pistol. Compared to my Webley Hurricane, that’s not made for target shooting, it’s great. Compared to the IZH-46M it’s not so hot. The trigger is just ok. It’s not really adjustable. It’s not really smooth. I don’t like the overlever cocking. Loading pellets is kind of awkward. It’s got a very small niche. I think it looks good. It’s light and easy to handle. But if you’re even the slightest bit serious about target shooting either buy the IZH or wait until you’ve saved up the money for something better.

Forget power…this pistol is about accuracy and the 375fps it can produce (7.5gr. pellets) is enough for what it was designed to do. Grips are large but comforatable for medium sized hands…for ther east, a little work with a rasp and sandpaper can make them fit odd sized hands.

Trigger is not really adjustable…can change thr first stage of a two-stage trigger, but not the final stage. Good news is the final stage isn’t bad….not great, and nothing like the great trigger that a 46M can give you for about 20% more $.

Strong points:

Light weight (for this type of pistol)

Accuracy

Quietness

decent sights and trigger

Weak points:

power

majority plastic
