Light, Compact, Kinda funky looking (kewlness points), trigger action is light, as a stock gun, it's a good performer. I LOVE the breakdown, unscrew the velocity adjustment block and slide back the slide cover and whalla tear down time.
over top ball loader - blocks the sight rail without a riser. THE BALL STOP SUCKS.. too damn finiky while playing.. plastic grips tear up your hands without gloves. stock barrel not so accurate. Not so great spring pressure, I had to turn velocity adjutment all the way in to achieve 280 fps. (shortly fixed by adding a differnt bolt)
I would suggest upgrading the barrel, adding a set of wrap around rubber grips (i cheated went to local gun shop and bought a set for 6 bucks..) Add a different pressure spring or ajdustment bolt for the velocity adjustment.
I wouldn't compare this to any other gun. For one simple reason, we all shoot a gun for one reason cause we like it. or cause we like what we can do to it. I've done plenty to modify mine, Mine has a new barrel (with silencer - just a toy) i run a n2 system with regulator and expansion cylinder, and a few other mods like trigger job, sight/laser, and a few other little loose items i cant remember, i will say for a LOW END startering level gun ( i paid $140 for mine ) I'D DO IT ALL AGAIN!!! Buy one...
