Ok, I have had this gun for about 9 months now. I love the full metal feel and the weight of the gun. It is loud and really is intimidating. The cap comes off with a pair of pliers, which is really nice. The gun is a bit tougher to cock the slide back, but because this pistol is not a full blow back gun, the rounds are already in the chamber so all you need to do is cock the firing hammer, which is great if you don't have much time and are in a hurry. Getting the co2 in the mag can be tough, and the instruction manual is total BS regarding putting co2 in the mag, but you will get the hang of it.
With the gun, you get around 6 magazines with one co2 cartridge. So thats about 90 rounds total with a 15-16 round magazine. I recommend buying a 2nd magazine. They are $35 and are a huge help and a necessity
I have encountered very few problems with the gun. Some people claim that the magazines leak after a while, but I always lube mine up and they have yet to leak. Another problems is that sometimes if the magazine is empty of gas, somehow the magazine may get stuck in the mag chamber, as the co2 gas also pushes the magazine out when you release it.
In conclusion, this is a great gun, but I recommend not firing the first 5 shots at a human being. They are well over 400fps and I have even broke skin from 20 feet away and caused scarring. From now on I never shoot this gun at people with a brand new co2 cartridge, and if you respect them, I suggest you do the same.
