I bought one and enjoy it alot. After purchase I stripped, lubed it, and hand racked the slide 400 times. I also polished the feed ramp. Broke it in with CCI mini mags which worked very well. I now use Federal Bulk and will get an occasional fte. I use it as a practice gun and close range target gun. I enjoy it and think it is a much fun as my first bb gun. Many people will tell you that it is nothing but trouble. I do not think that is especially true with the newer guns. They may not be perfect but they are a lot of fun. I have +1000 rds through it and everything is fine. Good luck making a choice.
