- CO2 (12-gram cartridge)
- 18-rd BB magazine
- Fixed sights
- Metal construction
- Weaver accessory rail under the barrel
NOTE: The owner's manual states that this has BAX Hop-Up, but it does not.
Although this gun appears to have a half-cock safety, the pistol does not function like that and would need to be fully cocked and on safe to be carried at the ready. Carrying this pistol half-cocked with the safety on may cause accidental discharge and is not recommended.

This is a GREAT piece for any collection. The weight alone is fantastic as it makes the recoil (especially with a new Co2 cartridge) something that grabs your attention. It's ACCURATE, once you get used to the weight and I would venture a guess it's one of the more accurate pistols in my collection - even WITHOUT the adjustable rear sights the open version has. That grip sleeve made it so comfortable I often find myself holding it just to hold it so I'd recommend getting one of those for sure, plus the finger groove gives you that tactical feeling and who doesn't enjoy that?
The blowback with such a heavy slide does make Co2 a tiny issue, but I can still get several full mags before I notice even the hint of a performance drop.
I have developed a little game. My target is in the basement at the end of the hallway that leads to the stairs. I have printed several 11 x 17 "hostage type" targets. I start around the corner on one side of the hall, step out, and as quickly as I can locate the target, aim, and fire while moving across the open space to the other side of the hall. It's a blast! This Sig is currently tied for first place in accuracy.
I can't recommend this one enough for killing copious amounts of paper.
Overall - really a great gun and if you practice dry-fire like I do, this is way more fun. Do both and you'll find you'll be a better shot.
In its class, it is a good pistol for target shooting, especially if you're practicing with this size powder gun. If you're looking for better quality build, and can afford it, I would move up to the Walther pistols. However, for this price, I'd recommend this pistol readily.

Answer:Realistic training aid. It looks and functions almost identically to the Sig P226 X-Five, without having to go through tons of expensive ammo. It is great for practicing drawing your weapon from a holster, and teaching firearm safety to others before moving up to Real firearms with live-fire ammunition.
I owned one of these BB guns before I got the real thing so I knew how to take it down, holster and draw it, and target practice without having to go out to the range. Ammo is cheap, and I can squeeze off a couple hundred rounds for less than $15. I have also taught many of my friends about gun safety with this BB gun due to its weight and realistic action (including safety, magazine housing, take-down lever, and slide release), this is a really great investment as a training aid and plinker.
