I purchased the tan version(M4-177T) before Christmas and after I had mounted the front and rear iron sites(at home) I realized that the 5-pellet magazine was missing. The boxes were on display in unsealed boxes so I wasn't sure if some other spectator had removed the magazine prior to my purchase or if it came like that from Crosman. I tried to contact Crosman through their website, but their online contact form was disabled for maintenance and it was too late to call them by phone. I basically had an $84 mantle piece(not sure why it costed more at the store compared to the online price. Crosman advises that consumers do not return the pellet gun to the store, but that was my only option. I could have payed $5-$10 since you proably pay shipping to get the set of magazines from Crosman, since no-one else seems to sell them, but $90.72 with tax for a pellet gun was already an expensive investment with no way to test the performance of the pellet gun. Walmart's customer service agreed that the magazine was supposed to be included in the package so I was refunded the full $90.72. I would have exchanged it, but the one I purchased was the last tan M4-177T.
Pros: The appearance and weight is very realistic with metal iron sites, an M4 magazine that detaches for storage, and a telescoping stock for shoulder adjustments. The handgrip could be better since it doesn't really conform to your hand. I haven't been able to test the performance of the gun since I did not have a pellet magazine, but a tool is included in the package so that you can make adjustments to the sites for better accuracy.
Cons: The night before I returned the pellet gun I tested out the pumping mechanism a couple times and there seemed to be a lot of resistance compared to other pellet guns I've used. As a result, I recommend that you pump the gun before inserting a full pellet magazine so that you don't accidentally misfire the gun into something you're not willing to destroy. There might be other cons, but I was unable to test the functionality of the gun.
I probably wouldn't recommend buying the gun from the store unless you're able to get a Walmart associate to confirm that everything is accounted for which I'm sure they would be willing to do so).
