1st - Very very easy to cock with it's overlever system.
2nd - Very powerful which adds to it's appeal.
3rd - Very accurate for a spring pistol - takes awhile to learn how to correctly hold it; but once you do - it is very easy to hit the bullseye 9 out of 10 times.
I once owned a much more expensive HW45 and would rate the Cometa Indian as far superior in every way.
It arrived double boxed, all be it, very sparse of labeling and utilitarian, but damage free. Instructions are no more than photocopied low budget offerings. But give you instructions enough to be successful. I was surprised Cometa was not stamped on the gun anywhere as that is how I saw it advertised. I gather AirForce International thought enough of the design and manufacture that they were willing to rebadge it. My first reaction was the fit and finish was almost crude as compared to say a Beeman P series pistol. That's not to say, it is not a well built gun. It is very substantial, but appears to be for the most part a much not fussed over cast frame. Barrel and compression tube look machined and well fitted. But It's still not exactly hand polished work so to speak. The weak points would seem to be the cocking lever. I suspect it is up to the job but in contrast to the rest of the substantially built gun, it feels a bit on the flimsy side. I can understand weight concerns, the gun is not exactly a feather at 2.4 lbs., and of course let's not forget production costs. Composite grips are fairly comfortable and match the quality of the gun. The plastic, pulling, pushing, sliding, snapping down, clipping, clicking, breech is also a concern to me. I try to establish a shooting routine just like a pilot would do an aircraft engine start-up. Everything where it should be and done in a certain order. This gun requires a procedure. It's not an unpleasant thing by any means. In fact I find it a little intriguing, and once you've gotten the hang of it, it's a super and fun shooter. My eyes have a few miles on them and for iron sights these are some of the easiest for me to use. I'm getting in the 470-480 fpm with RWS 7.0 gr Diabolo Basic's with good accuracy. This certainly is not a target gun, but what really blew me away, and of course I can only speak for my INDIAN, is that it came out of the box sighted in to drive tacks. I guess I've put at least 300 rounds through it and never touched the sights. It was just dead nuts on out of the box!
It could easily become my go to plinker, and very well might. I'd like to see this gun in a .22. Maybe a bit heavier spring, as cocking effort now is so reasonable that a little more effort shouldn't sour up the experience. Over all, I have little clue as to the collectability of what this gun will be in the years to come, who knows, they may get a hippie cult following like VW Buses. I do know however, this is a well made, well balanced, big chunk of metal, with a consistent and useable trigger, mine pulls at 4.75 lbs., that shoots great and is simply two hands full of fun
