its not a precision target pistol by any means so dont expect miracles but its not a bad shooter either, for me at 10 metres with 10 metres targets all the pellets end in the black… i also use sub-six aiming so the sights for me work just perfect…

About 100 or so pellets are what took to break it in

From what i understand with these chinese airguns the quality control isnt that great so one could be good and the one right next to it could have some problems…

For the fun one can have with it its very well worth the money… And no its NOT good for “pest control”

Cheap chinese piece of crap! Bought one of these new to shoot into a pellet trap in the basement. Shot about 1 foot over the trap and hit the wall. Shoots too high and can’t put it on target because the rear sight ran out of adjustment. Front sight needs to be about 1/4 inch taller. I guess I could put the rear sight to a grinder and see if I can take enough metal off the bottom of it to sight in. It’s a $20 chinese pistol, yea, you get what you pay for. A good paperweight.

hi

i bought one of these from the local carboot sale for five of our english pounds!!!

it looked brand new but when i tried it after i arrived home, the pellet didn’t leave the barrel!!

i stripped the pistol down and basically couldn’t find anything wrong with it so i oiled the slightly dry leather piston seal, did a bit of polishing to the piston and trigger parts then cross hatched the cylinder, upon re-assembly, i applied a moderate amount of moly grease (from my works!)to the piston skirts, spring and guide then oiled the trigger with some light machine oil.

i then re-assembled the pistol, loaded a pellet and hey presto!- the pellet got stuck again!!!!

when i tried different pellets it shot fine, the first lot were oversized on the head and were jamming solid, i eventually moved it on but couldn’t bring myself to take any money for it as was a pretty poor excuse for a pistola!!

Again a Cheap Chinese indoor target plinker.

Don’t buy it if you don’t have the patience to let it break in.

If you have the ambition and knowledge to take it apart and do some polishing and correct lubing you will be rewarded with a decent $20 gun.

I had to carve out the rear sight in order to get it sighted in. And it now shoots fairly accurately and quietly indoors at 350 fps.

I’m not asking for anything more from this gun.

I’m happy and I had fun fixing it up….

Recommended only if you can get one for less than $20, otherwise, forget it.

Serious ruster straight from the box that somehow manages to shoot. At close ranges you not only get a pellet hole in the target but you also get some of the rust from the barrel to highlight the hole!

Makes a great hammer when it no longer shoots, which is after a couple hundred rounds.

Got a ‘shop soiled’ one for 15smackers and thought ‘this ought to be a good laugh’ , only damage was the bad paint job had been scratched , 2hrs later with some sandpaper + wirewool (and some skin of my nuckles) and a re-finish with the oil + beeswax left over from the last job and it looks a treet. good stripdown ,clean & lube job , tighten the screws up and fitted one of my old red dot open eye sights. Only down side is the flimsy U bracket for the stock bolt to take the pressure on cocking can break free so beware on that one.
