"I was honestly surprised when i opened up the box to this gun. it looks and feels like the real thing. shoots with what feels like about a 25% realistic kick, accurate, powerful, and just overall..... realistic! only problems i'm having with it are the spring in the slide and safety... the safety switch is pretty stiff and the slide is pretty weak, so when trying to put the safety on, it pulls the slide back. after this, it locks in partway back and i can't bring the slide forward till the safety is off... then the process repeats itself... however, this is an excellent gun and i can't wait to put it into use"
