"I originally purchased the pistol in order to determine whether or not the real pistol would be too large for me to carry concealed, in addition to target practice in the basement. The airsoft pistol is a bit wider than the real pistol, but not by much. The pistol is accurate from about 20 feet with a 1" minus MOA, but mine shoots consistently 1" high. I have adjusted the hop up and the pistol seems to shoot best when adjusted to the lower end of the spectrum. No matter the hop up, the shots are still 1" high. This could also be the sights, which are only adjustable lift to right, not up and down. PROS: the pistol feels realistic; fits the hand really well, which is typical CZ; loads easily; and can be fired inside without waking the kids. CONS: I really wish the slide lock was operable and would lock out when all shots have been fired, this is a feature included on many less expensive pistols; the auto-tensioner, which releases the spring when inserting the clip, is placed in a very inconvenient spot; this leads to accidentally discharging all the BBs when loading; it would be nice to be able to adjust the sights up and down, but this is a very specific detail to include on a pistol which costs less than $20. FINAL VERDICT: I would certainly recommend this pistol to anyone, I don't participate in airsoft skirmishes so I can't attest to its effectiveness in that environment, but I can say its a great replica, has solid construction, and hits the target hard and consistent. I have had luck with both 20g and 12g BBs."
