"I purchased this gun about a month an a half ago from today and have had some real issues with it. The mags leak, i can never fire anything past 10 consecutive shots without my gun locking back and hissing at me(literally). The gun itself is amazing, it has nice weight, the cosmetic appeal is undoubtedly great and it handles exceptionally well(when it actually decides to shot). Now, I realize that there is most likely than not some user error in this, but in all honesty a gas blow back shouldn't require so much work. I like that aps is trying to be different and I respect their view on changing the way CO2 mags work but it just seems so high maintenance to a guy like me. Anyways, without being negative I really do think that you will like this gun if you buy it. Yes, it needs teching, yes the mags are a pain in the behind, and yes it seems that you can't fire consecutive shots without the gas reservoir going to zero BUT if you can conquer these things this gun is amazing.
-cant shot consecutively
-hop-up is absolutely amazing(I know i didn't touch base on that part but it is really a piece of work)
- Cosmetic appeal
If you figure those problems out you'll have yourself one hell of a gun. "After using the ACP for a few weeks, I've grown quite accustomed to it's needs. This is a very different GBB pistol on the market compared to most. All of the difference comes with the magazine. At first the gun wouldn't function correctly, but the reason being was user error. After you tighten the valve down all the way, loosen the inner valve just a tad, otherwise you will get about 6 shots and out of gas. Then 5 minutes later you have a full gas reservoir again. It was a strange phenomenon that took me about an hour to figure out, but the puncture needle was blocking air from leaving the cartridge fast enough.
The O-rings around the valve also broke their seal and leaked on all 3 mags. This was fixed by adding some grease around the rings. I can tell that this sidearm is going to take a lot of maintenance to keep in working condition. The slide is also tough to pull back, but this has no effect on the gun when it cycles.
Aside from the set-up, this gun performs well. All 3 mags shoot all rounds and all lock back perfectly. No gun malfunctions so far. My pistol chronos about 340 fps with a .20 and a fresh cartridge. I also didn't realize that the gun came with glow sights. They have to be charged with a flashlight, but this sidearm package is a steal. APS has made a really fine CO2 powered pistol for a cheap price. I am satisfied with my purchase.
Sights are easy to acquire
Cheap (The good kind)
2 Mags and a gun for $100!
O-rings on the valve require a lot of maintenance
Hard pull back
Tricky magazine "i heard some great things about this so I thought i would buy it so I did and it is very very good. It worked like a charm but the only thing is I want to get a better trigger spring. It takes a little time for the trigger to ingage. Otherwise buy this if you want a co2 powered gun and a well working a mobile gun. Read More Reviews Write a Review

APS ACP Full Metal CO2 Powered Airsoft GBB Gas Blowback Pistol with Extra Magazine - Dark Earth
The new and improved APS ACP follows the same design direction as the previous ACP to bring you a high quality, high performance pistol at competitive pricing. Powered by .12g Co2 cartridges, the ACP offers a crisp and powerful blow back action with superb accuracy thanks in part to the improved compression from the patented APS Co2 system.
Some of the changes made to the pistol from popular request include replacing the blaze orange outer barrel with a matte black outer barrel. Issues with early models and difficult to insert Co2 cartridges have been addressed and now all pistols come with a magazine tool for easy loading of Co2 cartridges.
A stabilizer has been added to the barrel to further secure the barrel and dampen vibration. The additional stabilizer greatly improves consistency of BB groupings on target.
For improved durability of the pistol, a special polymer used in the manufacturing of real polymer framed handguns has been utilized to mold the frame of the ACP. This makes for a very robust and realistic feeling replica.
Features: Full Metal Slide and Blowback Assembly High Strength Polymer Frame and Outer Barrel 20mm Underside Accessory Rail great for Lights and Lasers Integrated On-trigger Push-button Safety Includes Extra Magazine Realistic Blowback Action Dimensions:

*GBB 101: It is a good idea to let your magazine return to regular temperature before
using it again for optimized performance. We recommend spare magazines for best performance on all GBB's.
