Whats great about this gun first of all is the overall design. It is wicked looking and can turn heads fairly well for a gun of its class. The feel of the gun is also very good. The expansion chamber provides a very good grip together with the .45 grip that is also on the gun. It is easy to clean and maintain, it doesn't overshoot easily, and it is lightweight. The standard double trigger is also a great feature for giving tired fingers a rest. It is durable and has a solid frame that can withstand some good knocks.
The stock trigger is a bit stiff, but this can be fixed easily with a trigger job that costs maybe $10. The barrel is not a standard size and it is a bit large, so the paint may drop more than expected or go off target. Most Spyder barrels will fit on this gun, so that problem too can be solved without having to replace the gun. The barrel is not ported, so the gun is a bit loud when fired.
This gun is great for a beginner and can be upgraded to compete on higher levels. There may be some better deals out there, but this gun is still a solid buy.
