Thanks again to Mr.Marvin that making this delivery happened in such a bad weather day with ice storm in Toronto ~

First impression - it is big! Much bigger than I expected... I almost can't put the box into my trunk...

When I got home, can't wait to put it well lay on the carpet and open the box ~ the second impression is big and heavy (I realized the weight again later after I finished some shoots...). Now I understand why some review said this gun is not for the youths as too heavy although the pump effort is easy enough...

Used some cleaning pellets on the barrel but still able to see some oil mist when shooting... And I am wondering if I need some polishing job on the tube like ppl work on the P17 before shooting it the first time?! Looks nothing mentioned on the reviews I read...

The gun is truely very accurate! When sighting it in on the bench, I can have stacking pellets from it right from the box...

Oh, almost forgot to mention the 5 shoots indexing tray just SOOOOO good! And I think this will be very helpful to mount a scope with low profile rings too!! However I think I will buy it a front sight globe before I turn stronger to handle the added weight from scoping plus the original weight ~ [emoji57]

Trigger part ~ It looks this issue on others doesn't bother me a lot... At first I pulled it like the other 2 stage trigger ( some reviews said you just pull it halfway then squeeze to the end... ), and found it's really something on the bad side as the trigger is heavy and not moving as expected... Then, I just take aim, and pull it once from front to the end directly just giving me a much better experience and as you are giving enough force on the trigger, the trigger just likely turned lighter and not affecting the accuracy...

The only one complain from me is I can't get used to the open sight yet ... It's not like the pistol, I think it's because the long distance between the front and rear sights, while see through the rear sight, there are too much room on the left and right of the front sight. It gives me a hard time to put the front sight right on the middle...

But it's okay ~ because the design of this gun just gives you the convenience to switch the front sight to other style easily enough ~ I finally get the chance to try the sight globe now ~ hoho ~ [emoji16]ImageImageImage

You will definitely enjoy the 953!

Can't remember why I got rid of mine - but for sure a bad call on my part... :(

Congrats. I rarely shoot mine these days but I was tempted to buy another when this supply came available. It's just that good. Check out the triggers mods on the net.
