Thanks for the good offer and the quick shipping from Ian (offroad720), I have this nice Xisico XSP180 break barrel springer pistol to my collection now!

It's BIG, maybe not really, but LONG for sure... In very good condition, test shot a few pellets, still smoking a lot, about finish zeroing and can enjoy it in a later time~

Trigger is good, I agreed it's no need to adjust ~

Recoil is strong, maybe due to polymer frame and no special design to reduce the kicking, feels my wrist takes it hard...

Generally, I like it! And it's my first Xisico products, heard the reputation of this Chinese brand and this pistol makes me feel even better about it! ImageImageImage

Congrats... Airmec was saying I should have bought that, but it was sold.

[emoji38] First time I run faster than others ~

It's a normal recoil Unit, not like the ' reverse cocking' HW45, is it fits your need?

It looks good. However still a bit concern about the ' serviceable ability ' for the Chinese quality and the plastic frame and etc parts... And have no idea where I can find parts, like seals, for it... Any one have some advice??

Should be able to get seals no problem. If you researched, I bet it uses standard common size seals. I know I got an older Gamo Falcon, and the piston seal is the same as Crosman break barrel.

Thanks and will do it soon as I noticed the breech seal looks a bit flat and almost flush to the chamber opening... Gave a measure looks 11mm diameter...

And the gun rated similar power to the HW45, and from the length number, we can see putting the barrel over the compress tube do shortens the size a lot...

A issf shooting buddy of mine has an old springer pistol. I'm told it's quite accurate but it wore his wrist away from years of use.

Quite the nice collection you're building up. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah like my Gamo. The breech seals are more like a Crosman transfer port seal on the 13/22XX gun, But larger. Will need to find a better source, than ordering from the UK. I really like to see them make more underlever air pistols. The one I got isn't a power house, but it is nice to shoot. Fixed barrel, under lever cocking, with a swing out loading gate. No bigger than my 8" 357. Will be able to take a picture tomorrow with my HW45.

So it's you that bought it? :) Great air pistol! I have one in .177, superb accuracy, and an excellent trigger. Speaking of which, sometimes the triggers on these guns wear out and the gun shoot by itself as soon as it's cocked. Don't be afraid to use it though, just stop using it if that condition appear. One very important thing: don't forget to put the safety to ''fire'' before pulling the trigger. If you pull the trigger before, when you put the safety to ''fire'' the gun can fire by itself :shock: .

If I remember correctly, these pistols use a 26 mm seal, but it's been a while since I tore mine apart. I converted mine to a parachute-style Diana seal. I guess you could use an Oring of the correct size as a breech seal.

Finished a little shooting with the new toy after dinner ~

Accurate, small groups, better than what I expected and much better than what the factory rated on the manual '6m away from target and accuracy ctc <= 54.50mm... ' [emoji38] however I found an issue that I ran out of rear sight adjustment and it still shooting about 2 inches higher than I aim (6 meters away)... Fiber optic sights, looks need to get used to aim 2 inches lower?!

Looks not pellet picky at all...

Powerful, didn't go through Chrony yet, feels above 400 fps for sure, hopes can get 430 to 450fps~ thrown about 20 to 30 pellets... Feels a bit sore on wrist AND the elbow... Kicks back really hard...

Safety is not like what I used before, when you cocking it, it engaged to avoid trigger engaging (quote from manual), and when you putting back the barrel , you 'press' the safety and it looks release something else inside to let you can shoot... I didn't pull trigger without pressing the safety and will be more caution when handling this part...

Overall, a very very interesting plinker for sure~ and looks nice most importantly ~ [emoji38] Better than the Hatsan Mod25 I owned before.

Not a competition light trigger and not comparable to the HW45, even a little bit stiff, but feels good for the pistol and firm and solid. It can be adjusted to lighter by turning a screw, but it's okay and I think I will keep it as-is.

Oh I wasn't expecting HW trigger.. But it looks like it would be a decent, leave by the door pester pistol. The squirrels are teasing my dog.

It should do the job well~ the travel is short and the engagement is crispy. It's a decent one.
