This gun is remarkably solid - great weight, metal mag and slide - it feels as good as the H&K USP (especially now that gun comes with a plastic mag which only lasts 3-4 uses). You can get this gun for a great price if you shop it, but it's actually worth the full asking price hear anyway. Sure, power is limited, but it shoots reliably, MUCH straighter than the Daisy 340 (and actually makes the daisy look as bad as it is), and if you're looking for a CO2-free close range pistol, this is it.
ProsLooks and feels great
Easy to cock (especially compared to the slippery plastic of the 340)
ConsHandle a bit hard and plasticky but the metal slide makes up for it.
Lacks power - but for a springer it's just dandy.

best in its class!
Cheap spring air pistols have been around for decades. I have a marksman 2002, Daisy powerline 201 and Daisy powerline 340 and this new crosman PSM 45 is better than all of them!
ProsMetal slide and spring fed magazine.
Good accuracy from 5 meters
ConsSlide catch/release doesn't function.
I wouldn't mind if it was harder to cock with a stronger main spring if it had a higher muzzle velocity.
200 fps is OK but 300 fps would be great!
