Anyone here own one of these low priced .177cal CO2 pistols? Opinions? Accurate? Actual speed? Trigger pull?

They're great guns in my opinion. You can't find a better deal, unless you like the synthetic grip better, then a Chaser is a good buy.
The ones I've dealt with have been really accurate, though I did have one or two that had a burr in the barrel and needed a recrown but for the most part, really good.
There is no safety and the trigger is a one stage adjustable. You have to take the grip off to find the adjustment screw. A Bic lighter spring works great as a replacement spring on the trigger to make it even better.

(The gun does decock by pulling bolt back and holding it while pulling the trigger, so you can put it on safe that way, just no button safety)

I did get a chance to hold a synthetic stocked version at a local gunshop. That rearward extension protruding from the bottom of the grip wasn't in the right place for my hand. A wood stock would allow for some sculpting for comfort.

I'm not sure on the barrel length but I'm guessing that it could be replaced with a slightly longer one. Sometimes more length allows for a valve to be faster to give the same 495fps speed but with gobs more shots per 12g bulb.

Are these pistols easy to disassemble to replace valve seals and springs?

That's good to know about the trigger and the decocking option. ......... Thanks

These have a slightly longer barrel than the Chaser so should be a bit more efficient.
They shoot around 460fps in 22 cal and I think it's similar in 177 if I remember. Raman would know better. The PP800 barrel is an inch or more longer, so that's an option if you think you have a little.more room for velocity. Raman probably has some of those barrels as well.
Very easy to work on, disassemble, everything is super easy, as easy or better than a crosman 2240.
