Well... The main body is a sturdy construct, paticularly the rifled barrle (noice)
The compensator could be a bit more pronounced however.

Good rate of fire and prety good caliber ammo.

I would personaly go for somthing a little heavyer and hard wearing, but I am almost converted .

I belive that this would be a good addition to any airsoft arsenal.

well it looks to me like thats a target shooting type pistol not an airsoft. im on my schools rifle team and trust me you wouldnt want to get shot by one of those if it shoots lead pellets. air pistol and airsoft are two very different things. and 300 fps is definitely not airsoft!

I agree with kill team. that thing fires the type of pellets used in air rifles and at the same kind of velocity. the kind of thing you should ONLY use for target shooting, not shooting other people at airsoft

its not really the same velocity. that pistol has a velocity of 300 fps the rifles im used to using go at about 500 fps.
that pistol wouldnt do as much damage as a rifle but its still way too dangerous for air soft which is about 100 fps max (i think)

Nah, my Airsoft Rifle is 175 FPS (ish) I think... definitely more than 100 though. 100 is high for an 'Soft Pistol, but mid-low for a Rifle

Explain the 325 FPS limit at an airsoft site I go to please. Explain the M16 Airsoft replica I have in my hands in my avatar. That was chronoed at around 300...

Heck, explain my glock, it chronos at 200 odd.

Those CO2 pistols SHOULD NOT be used for airsoft, EVER. They SHOULD be banned, but the Gestapo in Whitehall are banning harmless ones. Meanwhile, air weapons similar to the one you link to are potentially lethal. They fire metal pellets. Not faily harmless plastic BB's. If I ever saw someonecarry that on an airsoft site I'd grab the popcorn and watch the marshalls ram the thing down thier throat.

well, ok, my mistake, i have never owned or played airsoft before, and i thought it was an airsoft gun...

i have ordered two anyway, plainly because i am a fan of Walther and their guns, so they are more like "show" pieces, i will probably keep them with only one round each, because there has been alot of violent burglaries round my area, and i wouldn't want to use my two real glocks on a burglar.

Airsoft uses lighter ammo, so theres less energy at the same velocity, some airsoft rifles can be used at 500FPS with a 0.2gram BB(not BB here means "bullet ball" or something similar), this is about 2.3joules or 1 foot pound.

Mage's(my ¬_¬ ) M16 came in at 340 last time I properly chronoed it.(The site limit is 328+10% chrono error- 360.8)

As for useing a 4.5mm Co2 target pistol for home defence, I'd give it a miss and stick with the glock, It might not be as fuzzy, but if someone calls your bluff with the 4.5, you have nothing that will reliably stop someone from harming you or your family, nobody is a badass with there femur shattered by mr 9x19.
