Off to the range I went and right off the bat it held a tight group . I dialed in the sights, settled down and drove 10 shots all int the 9 ring at 10 meters. Not bad for an out of the box pistol with just a small modification to the grip and the stock trigger. Although we have =bot yet had our introduction to the new range to our membership the FAS 6004 has certainly sparked a lot of interest. every shooter who has seen it was surprised by the quality for the cost, the comfort of the grips, and a trigger they could shoot with. This pistol is very high on my recommendation list for someone interested in looking at competitive air pistol or just seeking something fun to shoot in their basement or back yard. Add in a tin of R 10 pellets and you instantly have 500 shots of just pure fun. This pistol will certainly put a smile on your face every time you align the sights and send a pellet towards the target.

First, the reviewer said that in his gun, the RWS Meisterkugeln pellets could not be shot because of their tightness in the breech. I had a supply of the 7.0 gr RWSM pellets so when I received my gun, I though Id give them a try even though Chiappa recommends the RWS R10 pellets. At the time of gun purchase, I also bought the R10s, but have not yet used them because the RWSM pellets work just fine for me. No problems with fit or performance. I have not yet shot the R10s, but so far, I have not had to because of the lack of problems with the RWSM 7.0 gr pellets.
Second, while the intent of many shooters will be to shoot the gun single-handed, the ambidextrous grip does allow two-handed shooting quite comfortably. Using the hand measurement system in the review, from the tip of my middle finger to heel of my hand is 6.5 inches resulting in a perfect grip fit for me. I initially wanted to buy the large match gun with the hand rest, but at the time I bought my gun, the difference between the ambidextrous and the match hand rest versions was $170 which I could not justify. Im very satisfied with my decision to stick with the ambidextrous version.
Third, the lack of rear sight click. With my gun, the click is light, but it is there. I also have so trouble with the sight picture because of the width of the front site. I do agree that if the black front and rear sights are not modified by coloring them, the target black on black coloring hides the sites so aiming is made quite difficult. Because of this problem, I paint both front and rear sites with Whiteout forming a U in the rear with the white front sight blade between the U posts (not very sophisticated I know but it works really well). Other reviewers have had problems with the rear sight that requires shimming. Fortunately, my gun does not suffer from that problem. In fact, there is more than enough adjustment ability to set up the gun for 10-meter shooting.
Finally, I am very pleased with my FAS. I have not yet played with the trigger adjustments because for now, the guns fires very predictably at the factory setting. The gun is comfortable and feels great in my hand. The gun is a joy to shoot. I am very happy and satisfied with my purchase.
Beautiful pistol with excellent precision. In Europe the Fas 604 (previous version of the FAS 6004 but identical) is a legendary gun !
Many may say the velocity of just under 400 fps is too slow but it is a target pistol. It is for serious target shooting and plinking. It is probably not a good choice for hunting or long range shooting so get another gun for that. For very serious target and plinking, this is one of the finest and I am tough to please.
The only issue is the same that many have said and that is the rear sight needs to be lowered just a little for 10 meter shooting. It is not that there is anything wrong with the sight but the manual shows the sight picture on the bottom of the black circle rather than on the center. I do not know why they send it out of the factory that way but they do. If you hold there you will hit the center. Everybody I know holds at the center so I did the shim modification and fixed it in a couple of minutes.
I can't recommend it enough.
The gun has a great finish and the grip fits in my hand like a glove. I highly recommend this gun to anyone starting to target shoot.
A very accurate little pistol easily as accurate but with better sights than a Daisy 747, As accurate as a P1701 but much
lighter. The pellets are a little tricky to load especially with fat fingers. Overall an excellent gun for getting into 10M.
FPS on my unit is 370fps with RWS R10 7grn match pellets.
