The APS Black Hornet Custom is APS's latest entry into the CO2 powered pistol market. Powered by a traditional 12g CO2 cartridge, the Black Hornet Custom features an ergonomic polymer frame with beveled magazine well, an aluminum alloy slide with competition style slide cuts and front and rear high visibility sights. The true gem of the Black Hornet Customs performance is its select fire, full auto capability. With the flick of the slide mounted switch the Black Hornet transforms from an extremely gas efficient semi automatic pistol to a BB spewing fully automatic monster. *Notice:
In Our tests we have found that the Black Hornet Custom is most reliable and efficient when fired in bursts as opposed to fully automatic.

"There are a few things you should know before you get this gun. First, you need to understand how to disassemble a glock, second, you should only switch firing modes when the slide is back, otherwise the gun gets damaged, and third, grease the hop up toggle mechanism, cause it's difficult to adjust if you don't.
Incredible trigger response
Good fps for most situations
Good accuracy on semi auto
High fire rate on full auto
Accuracy is meh on full auto
The hop up toggle mechanism is a plastic gear
If you like the new look, then the paint scratching off might be a con
Placement of the safety requires using your off hand to activate the safety
Sometimes the mag leaks after shooting in quick succession, the way to fix it is to release the mag, then put it back in the gun
The hop up is difficult to adjust if it isn't greased
I can't say much about range just yet, cause I didn't get the hop up to be able to be adjusted until recently, but so far, I have got about 95ft without being able to adjust my hop up.
"First off let me say this sidearm looks and feels awesome. I received this sidearm yesterday and have done a lot of shooting. The slide does tend to stick a little but it still shoots perfectly.
Low co2 usage
It would only shoot about half a mag and then would stop. Found a fix tho.
Overall buy this gun. You shouldn't regret it.
"This is a great sidearm
Pros: it's light weight, it fits in my hard shell glock holster perfectly, very accurate, easy fire mode selector, durable, it's easy to take the slide off to adjust the hop up or add oil or grease or any maintenance it needs, mags are inexpensive, they hold a decent amount of ammo, sights are glow in the dark, and I can shoot about 3 full mags (maybe even 4) with one co2 cartridge.
Cons: the full auto setting isn't dead on accurate, (but if you fire a quick burst in the general direction of your target, it's almost guaranteed you'll hit it.) And this might be a minor avoidable con with most gas powered pistols, but after you have used the mags quite a bit with a lot of rapid firing in one day...the gas will freeze in the magazine , not allowing you to shoot any rounds until it's at a warmer temperature. Unfortunately you can't take out the co2 cartridge until it's empty...and when it freezes it's hard to tell if it's empty. I'm pretty sure this is just a minor, fixable or avoidable problem. And sometimes the slide will stick but that is very easy to fix, just add some lubricant.
oooverall, this is a fantastic sidearm, shoots great, it's durable and for the most part reliable.
