Product Information:
I bought this and a Umarex Beretta 90 for my first pair of purchases, and they helped me learn a lot about the differences pistols can have. My review is likely to be less professional, but I am a low-muscle guy so I get to notice the differences in force and sensitivity quite well, and most aspects are probably relative to a Umarex Beretta 90. That being said, this is a great gun, and is a good balance between economic and ergonomic. Most of the cons are negligible and with an hour or so of practice the gun becomes easy to master. This gun's only real drawbacks are not being completely state of the art with its features (as far as function, but ease and fashion are great!) and the way its magazine operated. The magazine was relatively easy to learn, even for someone as lost with a pistol's mechanics as myself. Practice makes perfect.

Tip: When loading BB's into the magazine, roll your thumb gently upwards on the current BB as you press. This seems to promote the same kind of rotation to transfer to the next BB and allow it to insert easier. Since doing this I have yet to chip a BB during loading.



Pros:

Pros:
-Looks simply amazing. I have a total of 0 complaints for the fashion of this gun.
-Very ergonomic/comfortable feeling. The features were easy to operate and very reliable and smooth.
-Accurate, enough said.
-Very smart features including an ambidextrous and easy to access mag ejection, holster safe and easy reach safety, a plug, a working double-action style hammer (if not cocked it will attempt to take extra pressure from your trigger pull to run the hammer), and very easy mag loading.
-High capacity mag of 25 rounds
-Compared to the Umarex Beretta 90, it needed less force to cock but slightly larger range of motion needed to fully cock. Its slide was also better design and was much less likely to catch fingers and did not seem to be angle sensitive (on the Beretta 90 that invoked jams quite often) The one time I did catch my thumb in the slide was the result of prolonged arm strain, a bad slip, and my general inexperience with spring airsoft guns. I did, however, cut myself when doing so.

Cons:

Cons:
-The magazine felt somewhat barbaric in how it was loaded; although it held 25 rounds, the only way to load BB's was by pressing the next one against the backing to force it down. Although the parts were slanted to promote this, it was not as effective as it should've been and each next BB loaded required slightly more force than the last. Being the puny kind of guy I am, I don't think I ever managed to load more than 20 BB's at a time, and 10-15 was optimal for ease. If not done properly, you can easily chip or damage BB's slightly as you attempt to load with the kind of force required. I left a good tip for this I found in my main paragraph.
-Compared to the Beretta 90, it has no Picatinny rail, and while not necessary, is a bit of a let-down.
-Compared to the Beretta 90, its sights are not labeled with dots and take slightly more thought to line up.
-Magazines can sometimes "spasm" and multi-eject BB's during mag unload or reject BB's as loading new ones. After several, several shots, reloads, and repetitions of using this gun I BELIEVE this happened once while the gun was loaded, which injected 2 BB's into the chamber and proceeded to jam the gun and the magazine ejection, but left no long-term damage, BB breakage, and seemed to be an incredibly rare occurrence.
