Bought this pistol as a refurb.. The gun arrived in a cardboard box with two magazines and a users manual. No hard case. I installed a CO2 cartridge and a loaded magazine and fired one shot, single action, at an 8" target at 10 yards. The pellet struck with good force touching the bullseye. I cocked the hammer and fired another round, single action, only to be rewarded with a weak "pffft" and the pellet did not even leave the magazine. I then shot approximately 20 more rounds, double action, with no problem and reasonably accurate results. Then the pistol failed to launch the pellet from the magazine in either single action or double action. I tried 4 different styles/brands of pellets, 5 different magazines and changed CO2 cylinders 3 times just to ensure it was, in fact, a problem with the pistol. The pistol will not function in either single or double action. I visited some other airgun retail sites and read the reviews on this pistol. I found that this is not an isolated problem with this pistol and that the magazine fails to index properly to line the pellet up with the barrel. This problem occurred most frequently in single action but, like mine, also failed to launch the pellet in either single or double action for other owners. One purchaser returned the piece to Umarex only to get it back in the same non-operational condition. I have filled out a "Defective" return ticket on-line for Air Gun Depot to exchange this defective gun for a Crosman 2300T. I have read many good reviews on the 2300T. It is reliable, accurate and it can be easily worked on, modified and upgraded by the owner. Additionally there are many You-Tube videos detailing how to work on the piece.
ProsRealistic look and feel. Reasonably accurate but I could not get the pistol to fire enough pellets to fully accustom myself to the trigger and sights.
ConsBased upon all the reviews I have read and my own experience, quality control at Umarex for this pistol is non-existent. I'm sure the reason this pistol was sold as a refurbished piece is due to the same problems I experienced and is inherently faulty and beyond repair. This pistol was defective from the first shot and absolutely useless after approximately 20 more shots. I STRONGLY advise against purchasing this piece either new or refurbished for the reasons previously described.

I ordered the refurbished model and couldn't find anything that would suggest it wasn't a new pistol. The trigger is incredibly smooth in double action, and breaks cleanly in single action. Buy more clips when you are ordering one to take advantage of the free shipping.
ProsWell made. Should last a lifetime.
ConsConsidering it is a pellet pistol, it would have been nice if it had adjustable sights. UMarex make it with adjustable sights and call it a Gold Cup!!
