I was pleasantly surprised to consistently get 2.5 mags and sometimes a full third mag out of the CO2 before having to change. It's accurate enough to hit a 6" plate, consistently, full auto or semi. Even my 8 and 10 y/o sons can easily get hits.
There are caveats though.. It's really heavy. You're not gonna want to lug this around romping through the countryside. A sling would help. My boys have to lean WAY back to be able to hold the gun on target because it's too heavy for them to hold up.
Second, I thought the kit with extra mags was a great idea but.. Unless you plan on shooting all three mags 2 or 3 times it's not worth loading the CO2 cartridges. My typical use, I load the cartridges and just keep using that mag until the gas peters out then put cartridges into one of my pre-loaded mags.
Third, the included loader is a pile of garbage. WHEN it works, it's a big help BUT most of the time you can't depress the plunger. Most mag fills have been done by pouring BBs out of the bottle into the loading port (and all over the ground). Also, In my experience it has been near impossible to get the BBs to evenly 'doublestack' in the mag which is recommended to operate best. Using a small tool has been the only way to get even 'doublestacks' and that has been EXTREMELY time consuming.
Lastly, the loading button has been MURDER on my fingernails, trying to keep it retracted to fill mags. The spring is plenty strong, which is good for shooting, but the button BARELY protrudes through the slot in the mag making holding onto it fairly difficult and resulting in constant slips spilling BBs everywhere.
Would I buy it again? Definitely. I would spend less and just buy the gun though.
Took it to a 3 Gun match to let people see it and had a line of people wanting to take their turn with it.
Combo pack is the best way to purchase this item.
The directions weren't exact, for example, the gun won't allow you to dry fire it, without bbs in the chamber.
I read a lot about people having problems loading the magazines. I found it very easy to load by hand, just using my fingernail to keep the spring compressed enough to load right from the bb bottle tip (just cut it off enough so too many don't spill out).
This is TONS of fun. I love the sound too, but it will def raise some eyebrows with your neighbors. Don't use it in the city or suburbs if you have neighbors will will complain.
I would recommend the distressed model. It looks more authentic.
Best toy I bought in 10 years. -
I was (and still am) surprised by how solid (and heavy!) it is. VERY well built.
Second, it's just plain FUN!
I didn't have any issues with loading it (with the speed-loader) once it got a feel for it.
NOT A TOY!
Between the power that the dual CO2 cartridges provide and the fully automatic mode, you can do some serious damage to just about anything you take aim at, so be mindful.
In closing, Bitchin'!
Flawless design other than the 2nd co2 cylinder doesn't pierce. Try dropping a penny or 2 in the co2 port between the 2 cylinders at the bottom of them as the coin(s) fits perfectly... Just to put my 2 cents in. Lol
