Great quality metal gun with very good magazines. This gun is the one to have for sure.
I am so happy I purchased one!
the bottom of the sight had a large gap from lousy and inaccurate machining. front blade sight was too narrow. sent gun back and upgraded to a s&w 5856 and
I am very glad I did. major impronement in trigger and sights. s&w got it right.
So I bought the Walther CP99 pellet gun with a rifled barrel. --Better, but still not what I was looking for.
Finally I went for the CP88BC pellet gun, with the rifled 6 inch barrel. Finally, the practice handgun I was looking for! Excellent accuracy. Very good trigger pull, both in single--and in double action. Excellent weight and balance.
The one thing I did not like are the black on black open sights. When ahead and painted them myself as you can see in the picture. Once I did that I was able to drive tacks at 10m.
After mounting a picatinny rail under the frame and adding a laser sight. It is a great plinking gun. The action of the slide and barrel mount are so good the the frame mounted laser is very accurate.
When I point my hand at a target the sights are right there, little adjustment needed, the mark of a great action shooting pistol.
Obviously built to quality specs not to a price point.
Yes, this gun looks cool and is heavy enough to feel like a real gun -- never mind that. I want to talk about the WORKMANSHIP that is evident in every part of this piece. It uses METAL rotary clips (not PLASTIC) which are machined for very tight clearances with the pellets you load them with. The fit is so tight and exact that you will know INSTANTLY when your CO2 cartridge is done -- the pellet will not leave the clip and the gas will escape with a weak "pfft" and you will know it's time to change the CO2.
Every part of this piece is well-oiled, almost to a fault. I had to wipe it down before I started handling it. So far this gun has not jammed on me even ONE TIME! It's too bad this site is out of the adjustable sights but so far I'm doing ok with the stock sights. I'll write more in time; this gun arrived yesterday and I just had to review it right away.
Did I mention I LOVE this gun?!!
If you buy one you will also want to buy 6 extra 8-shot clips (it comes with 2 clips). Additionally, a Crosman Diabolo Speedloader which loads 7 clips in a minute or less is highly recommended as you will be shooting this pistol often, it is hard to put down.
Putting the hand grip back on after loading the CO2 is a breeze. Have already fired 100 rounds and I'm more than happy with my purchase.
