This is an excellent pistol. The 14 round magazine feeds great and is plenty of ammo for clearing buildings and other close quarter situations. The hop up is easy to adjust and works great, you can really dial it in to a "sweet spot" where the BB's fly nice and straight. I can hit a human head sized target from about 60 feet with it, and I'm no sharpshooter. However, you have to use the tool that comes with the gun to properly adjust the hop up, you don't want to lose it, I painted neon orange so I could find it easily if I misplaced it.
The instructions that came with the pistol were very easy to read, and clearly showed how to strip down the gun to clean it, lubricate it, and operate everything (great for when I was starting out)
KWA recommends using .25 gram or higher bb's and that is advice that should be taken. I've found that .28 gram are just right, and keep a nice, tight grouping on a target.
A word of caution to folks who might have a cross-draw style holster on their vest, this was a problem I had: The button for the magazine release is great and is easy to push, and the magazine slides out like a dream... when you want to change mags... however holstering the pistol against your body in the way the cross draw holsters do, one can accidentally push the button with their arm or body while moving around. I lost a magazine in the woods this way and it was not fun buying a replacement. Investing in a hard body leg holster solved this problem for me.
