Keep in mind that this pistol has a smooth bore, and fixed sights. I was able to get about 3" groups with 10 shots bench-rested, indoors, at 35 feet. If you plan on using this gun for pest control, I will suggest that you keep your shots to no more than that. Keep in mind that your target area is about the size of a quarter. The DAO (double action only) does stack up roughly, but breaks cleanly. However, there was one problem, the magazine release button was not working properly. After I blew through about 2 or 3 CO2 cartridges, the magazine release button was not functioning like it should. The clip kept falling out after the first shot, then the mag. release button stopped holding the clip in all together. The warranty is honored by Crosman, not Walmart. Crosman sent me a new pistol. Unfortunately the same problem happened with the new one. The problem must be a design problem in the manufacturing, not a single gun problem. If it was not for that problem, I would recommend this to everyone who is wanting to learn or teach the basic necessities of pistol shooting, even though it is a BB gun, it has the weight also. The slide does not have the blowback function, but as you squeeze the trigger, the barrel moves forward, and projects out of the end of the slide about an inch or so, until the sear on the trigger releases, the barrel then shoots back into the slide and the BB is launched out at about 400-450 fps., It would have been a great idea for Crossman to install a rifled barrel, but I guess they didn't to keep the cost down. Good luck, hope the mag. release button works on yours.
