Seeking opinions from current owners. It may not approach the accuracy of HW40 or S&W 686 I have but am interested in this break barrel pistol for the challenge it presents.
Reviews on internet are favorable for what it is.

Great! I have been watching this one for some time, I like its look, the small break barrel setup, the price and the reviews although the lower 300fps looks a bit weak... I really want to know some real hands on experience from the forum members too!!

i use this pistol to introduce people to airgunning..

it's clean, easy to cock, quiet and safe...

make it a big, close, metal (frying pan) target,
...and they're hooked.

hooked, line
..and zinger

Mine shoots a 7.4 gr. @ 325 fps....Definitely a short range shooter...stiff trigger.…accurate enough for what it is but I'm sure you'll be wishing for another 100 fps..

It's a break barrel springer.... Anyone tried to replace the spring to give it another 100fps?! [emoji38]

I would be shooting this one at 18 feet from a rest to manage the small recoil and trigger.
On sale at Replica airguns now. Delivered total to me will be $90.00.

I got one. The trigger is super hard on it. And everybody that shoots it comments on it. I expect it over 6#.

Next time I go to the farm, ill grab my trigger scale and test it. But I don't enjoy shooting it.

Good for plinking cans in the backyard. Not super accurate but super easy to cock and quiet. Perfect for when the neighbors are close by.

X2 on most of the previous comments although I think that this gun can be a better shooter than in stock form. This is not an heirloom gun but with some work it can become a decent shooter. Check out what I’ve done with mine here. topic76921.html

In stock form accuracy is difficult to achieve because of the hard trigger pull. But with a careful trigger mod it can get a lot better. With a cheap red/green dot sight I can get 1in groupings off hand @ 5m and around 2in semi-rested @ 10m. The stock sights are Ok if you prefer. I painted the front post white and it helped but the red dot did a better job.

....I think mine's a lemon ....Shoots way to the left , had a very hard trigger but I did some work on it ( from a U-Tube video).....It's my least favourite pistol out of many, but I take it out now and then "just to see",....always a disappointment but makes me appreciate my other pistols even more ......my two bits, for what it's worth ....I'll give it to my grandson.....

..Doc, He has to start, like I did, at the bottom..! Besides, him and his father & uncle will part out my collection when I'm gone (which won't be long ) ... If you give someone a crummy airgun , they'll appreciate the next one you give them even more ....lol
