- CO2 (uses 12-gram cartridges)
- 8-rd pellet repeater
- Blued frame
- Black plastic grips
- Highly realistic- which means this is as big as the firearm!
- Includes a hard case
Grips and weight of the pistol is good and comfortable for plinking.
Loading the CO2 is very easy and the puncture lever at the bottom of where the mag well would be works nicely.
On one CO2 cartridge I fired over 90 pellets and accuracy was not affected between 8 shot groups (one rotary mag).
I bought this simply for trigger control/ target practice so velocity of the pellets is of little concern.
Overall, couldn't be happier with the product and I sure wish these were around when I was a kid, incredible step up from the crosman walmart specials.
Some previous users mentioned about the rear sight falling off and the super glued it, you shouldn't do that.
There is a reason, it's an adjustable sight. It also happen to me and after reading the manual found a small wrench in the case and secured the sight.
The carry case it comes in is top notch too- very professional. The case even has a little spot to hold a tin of pellets.
I haven't spent a lot of time shooting it, but the little I have has been really fun. Great gun!
I'm not an excellent shot, but I'm pretty impressed with the accuracy of this gun. For a pistol at 10 yards, shooting cans requires almost no effort. And from the same distance I can land quite a few "bull's eyes" on a paper target. Out of 48 shots, I landed about 32 in the black, and I blame my misses on human error and not the gun. Also I tend to fire in double action more than single action. The latter definitely produces more accurate shots!
Now for the cons. Although I would consider this pistol to be one of the better made air guns out there, I was quite surprised to see my rear sight literally FALL OUT after laying the pistol on its side. It's like they weren't attached to the pistol at all. Maybe this was a manufacturing flay, maybe is got jostled to much on the ride here, but either way, I was disappointed in the shoddy sights. Luckily I had some quick drying super-glue around, and now those rear sights aren't going anywhere!
Noise is another factor. Of course this does not sound like a real gun, but irritable neighbors might wonder what the hell is going on when they hear this thing. This pistol sounds like a very loud nailgun, and is probably the loudest air gun I've ever owned. On a scale of 1-10 (ten being as loud as a real berreta) I would rate this a 5 while I would rate my Crossman 1077 a 3. It's a noisy gun, but for some folks that's even more of a reason to by this puppy!
Shooting... You can go through A LOT of pellets with this sucker, and I ended up spending about 6 CO2 cartridges at 48-50 rounds a pop. After about 50 shots, the pistol starts to loose its umph. As far as loading clips and CO2 is concerned, this pistol does it well! I really hate CO2 powered guns that take a lot of twisting and turning to load... like my 1077. When it comes to air repeaters I like speed, and this pistol has it!
So lets recap...
-Great look and feel
- quite accurate at 30 feet (10 yards)
- easy to load
- Has a loud punchy sound!
-Switch between double and single action. The latter can increase accuracy with a lighter pull.
-Check the rear site and see if it's on properly... I might have just had bad luck with mine but you never know...
- Trigger pull is a little heavy but realistic. Kids and weak adults may have a hard time in double action mode.
-EXPENSIVE... but then again, you get what you pay for
Overall, If it wasn't for the crappy rear sight on mine, this would've gotten 5/5. However 4/5 is not a bad score at all.
A few notes you should know:
Expect to get about 60 good shots off per CO2 Cartridge. The Bretta website says 50 . They are right on. I like to use the whole Cartridge up in one shooting session. I don't know if the charge would hold if you shoot 25, let it sit for an hour. and tried to shoot another 25. Still, at less then $1 per Cartridge, it's worth using a new one per session.
Also, this gun is actually a touch heavier than my real FS92 - This is OK since I feel if I can hold this beauty steady for 100 rounds, I'll be able to do the same with my real FS92.
Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase - no surprizes.
