I bought this with the crossman destroyer pellets. I got both without checking if the pellets worked with the gun cuz it was recommended by amazon as “frequently bought together.” I thought since everyone buys that it must be the best option...wrong. This B.B. gun takes the round spherical B.B.’s and the pellets don’t work. So if your gonna buy, keep this in mind
Other than that, it’s great so far. Have not shot it yet but looks scarily realistic and actually has some weight to it. The .177 barrel is recessed a little bit from the tip of the barrel so it’s hard for someone to see. So far I am very pleased with this glock 19. I only wish they had a CO2 blowback model because CO2 is much more convenient than green gas especially on the go if your at a friends house or using it in an organized airsoft like event.
This bb gun is badass. The gun feels almost like a real firearm and is designed to replicate a Glock 19. The slide is metal and does not move and the rest of the gun is made of quality, hard, durable plastic. I recommend this to everyone, well worth the money.
I am extremely satisfied with the solid build, weight and details of this glock 19 replica. However, I was taken back after realizing the metal is fixed on this gun. I had seen videos of other reviewers who had working slides and realized there were two versions of the glock 19 made by umarex, one which is blowback and has working slide, this one being the other. I was surprised because this was not mentioned in the item description and I assumed this one has working slide. It definitely takes points off for realism, but I guess the price reflects it. Overall, other than a nonworking slide the gun is very well made and true to what real glock feels like.
So the CYA holster do fit. The only downfall is it’s extremely tight! I’ve tried it on my belt and off. It is a little easier to draw when it’s on your belt. I bought this cheap light to see if it will fits and it does. The BB gun itself is great! No issues yet. I do recommend trying it out. I’d buy another one if needed ????????...
Ps. I did loosen the tension screws and it did help a little.
Gun handles well weight and feel of it pretty identical to the real thing I own three that are actually firearms the 23 the 21 in the 19 this was very similar...But it's not blowback... a good practice gun though.... what I didn't like was as you can see in the picture I had to fabricate the back piece where you put the CO2 in... Mine came off in the holster I couldn't find it so I had to jury-rig it and then I just bought a new one when the price went down they need you work on better design of the handlethe rear piece of it that clips in doesn't hold very well
Phenomenal product. Looks and feels very much like a real gun. Ordered on friday night and got it sunday morning. I was able to get about 8-9 magazines full 125-150 rounds out of it before having to replace the co2 cartridge. You will want to get a few extra magazines as you will surely go through them quick.
I really can't add anything to review that isn't already posted except, When I researched the pistol online it was shown packaged in a Cardboard Box with "Glock 19" on it similar to what a real firearm might be sold in and worthy of keeping for storage etc. Disappointingly mine came in a cheap looking plastic vacuum formed clamshell. This is a missed opportunity for Glock / Umarex to add perceived valued and the unpackaging experience.
Great gun! Looks and feels like a real glock! Very accurate! This is the 2nd one I bought, got it $20 cheaper here on Amazon! Great deal!
Great product. Realistic weight and design. Very accurate. Only issue is finger safety. Has a long and heavy trigger pull but that is expected because it is a double action pistol. Fits great in my aftermarket holster. Excellent for training and speed shooting purposes. I do wish it was blowback though.
Laser sight was easy to install. The on/off/selector button is a bit hard to push due to size. The laser sight is great in low light and darkness but does not work well in sunlight. The holster is defective as it fails to turn the laser sight off when pistol is placed in it. I think it is stitched wrong on the bottom causing the magnet to be to far left of the place it needs to be to work properly. See attached photo.
I have to say this is on of the best fitting after market products I have bought. They have the texturing down to the T on this laser. It looks as if it should be on the pistol from factory. Also there is a company that carries the ECR feature for a kydex holster. Search "multiholster"
online and you should find their site. I was concerned this would add bulk to my EDC pistol but it doesn't. In fact there have been many studies that a laser in a self defense situation improves significantly accuracy... stopping the threat sooner.
I bought this sight for the LCP 10th anniversary I was gifted, and it's literally the best enhancement I could've bought for it.
Aesthetics are a big plus with this laser. At first glance, someone would think that's a factory component.
The green laser is highly visible even in broad daylight. I use the pulse setting for battery life, but also because it further helps me to quickly acquire the target. Yeah, it eats a set of batteries every month or two depending on how much you have it on, out of the holster, etc. They're 6 or 8 dollars, which is way less than ammo, so I can handle that.
Installation and battery changing is simple and straight forward, but here's something I didn't expect; to my pleasant surprise it stays zeroed! You have to take a good chunk of the housing out to change the batteries, but it doesn't jostle the laser or anything. The screws are fine, sturdy if you treat them as intended. Even with the tiny .380's snappy recoil it holds it's point of aim.
The holster is functional, but it's not great. I'd put it a full tier above the pocket one that comes with the LCP, which is nice because it's a courtesy. Viridian didn't have to include the holster, but I'm appreciative.
I Know lasers aren't panacean for shooting skill, so I'll share some of my training methods. First, get your practice in with the iron sights. I know, the LCP has awful sights, but you've gotta have your fundementals down. Now that you've got that, have your buddy (or yourself) switch the laser settings after every magazine. Every time you draw, you'll be able to get on target quickly, even in the off chance that the laser isn't working as intended.
Overall, this + training really enhances my shooting experience with the LCP, and raises my confidence when carrying.
Fits perfect, comes with extra batteries, and it came with the owb holster instead of the iwb holster. Which normally costs more.
So far so good, install was easy. Mounts firmly to trigger guard. Looks great on my S&W M&P Shield .40
Only thing I wasn't happy with was it said I was getting a pocket holster and I got some big belt mounted holster.
Other than that easy as cake to install and it comes with 2 sets of batteries.
I purchased this laser/holster combo in Feb of this year. After reading the reviews I assumed the holster that comes with it would be a throw away and it pretty much is. It is an OTW holster that is quite difficult at first to get the gun out. After repeated attempts of removing the gun, the holster began to break in a little while at the same time I figured out the "technique" to drawing it smoothly. Either way, the holster has been sitting on my dresser ever since unused.
Installation (Glock 42) was fairly easy and the most "difficult" point was snapping the two sides together to finalize the installation around the trigger guard. There is still plenty of space to get your finger on the trigger with the laser installed even if you were wearing light gloves. I clamped the gun in a vise and sighted the laser in a 20 feet. Surprisingly, it was nearly dead on. I just had to adjust it about 1/2 an inch to zero in on the bulls eye.
The laser is very bright in all conditions and as others have stated, very visible during sunny day time situations. I store the gun with the laser turned off in my house (it is not my go to gun) and turn the laser on and holster it when I carry the gun a few times a week. I have had this for about three full months now and the original batteries are still working fine.
As stated above, the holster was garbage so I ordered this holster from Multi Holsters:
This holster works with the reactor technology (a magnet) and if you didn't want to spend the extra money, you can probably modify a cheaper holster on your own for a lot less money. The Glock 42 is so small I also ordered a pocket holster (with ECR support) from Multi for when I carry the gun that way:
It probably sounds like I am plugging Multi but I am not. Just want people to know that there are alternative holsters that work with this laser when they are disappointed by the one that ships with it.
I gave it four stars because of the crappy holster and also because I would have liked it if the manufacturer allowed the owner to change the battery without have to remove one side of the laser mount. I have another laser that has a battery door which is super convenient. Overall happy with my purchase.
GREAT CONCEPT, POOR EXECUTION.
-ALWAYS DRAINS BATTERY AT 0.03mA WHEN TOTALLY OFF--ALWAYS DRAINS BATTERY AT 0.03mA WHEN TOTALLY OFF--ALWAYS DRAINS BATTERY AT 0.03mA WHEN TOTALLY OFF--ALWAYS DRAINS BATTERY AT 0.03mA WHEN TOTALLY OFF-
So I bought this laser because the green laser are reported and proven to be more visible at longer distances and faster to require.
I understand the limitations of the green laser (that it is a high drain on current). Making a green laser is horribly inefficient as first you have to make an 808 nm laser then use a YAG crystal to convert it to a 1064nm wave length and then a KTP crystal to convert it to our favorite color green 532nm wavelength.
All of this conversion sucks up battery power so that maybe only 15% of the batteries energy is actually in the green laser. The red laser is a direct emission without any conversions so it is 5 times more efficient with as much as 75% of the batteries energy in the red laser light energy emission. All of this means that you need bigger batteries that last less as long than a similar red laser.
But since a green laser has been said to be 20 times as efficient on being seen by the eye for the same amount of light energy there is a 2 to 4 times greater efficiency in seeing with the eye at a given light power emission.
Combine this with the government regulations of a 5mw maximum transmission power and you get the skewed result of everyone wanting the far less efficient green laser with the larger batteries and shorter battery life. The red laser can be made more powerful so that with smaller batteries with longer life it can actually seem brighter than the 5mw green laser but the regulation dictates all of us going green and using far more and larger batteries.
SO THAT IS WHY I CHOSE A GREEN LASER.
Now for this stupid sucker, battery life is horrid. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POWER CONVERSION LOSS BUT WITH THE DESIGN CONSTANTLY DRAINING THE BATTERY.
For the laser I measured 58mA current draw when it was on, 32mA current on pulse, and 0.03 mA current WHEN IT WAS COMPLETELY OFF.
Now we don’t go everyday with partially empty magazines because we shot a few rounds so with these green lasers we have to change batteries much more often. I figure for everyday carry at anything less than 80% capacity I would change them. Taking into account a typical 1/3N battery capacity of around 150mA-Hr that means after just 20 minutes or possibly just one range session of use I would change it. The rated battery capacity is a nominal comparison number and not the actual rating as the total capacity is affected by higher current draws, duty cycles, etc. The Lithium Battery is much better than other batteries like alkaline battery for having a more constant capacity but don’t count on more than 80%o of the rated capacity. For home use you might go down to 60% capacity before changing.
So this understanding of use for the green laser I well understand well so just like when you use ammunition at the range and have to reload, when I shoot my green laser I run low on laser rounds so I change the battery, often, Very often, very very often.
Now for the part I struggle with. As a home user changing the batteries after use at the range is not a big deal. I buy batteries off of Amazon and change them when I clean my firearm, no big deal. But alas I change the battery and three months later the batteries are dead, so what gives.
I have tested the laser with my VOM and discovered that it has a constant drain of 0.03mA. With the nominal battery capacity of 150mA-Hr gives a life of just over 6 months. Of course batteries are not digital like a round of ammunition and that last bit of energy can not be counted on in a high drain laser. I figure at most the battery becomes completely unusable after 4 months. After 3 months it becomes very iffy. In practical terms if you want to count on this laser to have some actual life when you pull it out in the middle of the night to confront someone that is there to hurt you and your family and adding in some of that engineered safety factor you will need to change the batteries every month- maybe with higher rated batteries or less safety factor for your wife and kida you might decide on going 2 months of no use meaning its time to change the batteries.. NOW THAT’S ALLOT OF BATTERIES at $6 a month in just battery costs and also having to be religious in changing them.
The second part of this nasty equation is how difficult it is to change batteries. You have to tear the darn thing in half with these three itty bitty teeny tiny screws with the special proprietary wrench that is also very teeny tiny. Now imagine doing this 12 times a year. I have never known plastic to be good for having screws go in and out so many times so imagine the screw holes will wear (most manufactures put a threaded metal ferule insert for this reason). And those teen tiny itty bitty screws-if not done in a controlled location they will certainly get lost. If you dropped one at the range you can forget about it. Maybe a big thick rubber band would be better than those screws.
Overall I like the green laser and form factor. I accept the industry wide limitation of short battery life WHEN YOU ACTUALLY TURN THE LASER ON. Having a laser that sucks the life out of the batteries when the laser off combined with the most difficult design I ever seen for changing batteries makes this product unusable, especially for the home user that likes turn key and not such a high maintenance item such as this.
I imagine the battery indicator feature that tells you when the battery is low is what is doing this (now is not that very ironic), or maybe the magnetic switch feature.
If they would get rid of whatever is draining the batteries then I would buy this product again just for the great green laser and form factor. With the constant current drain and need to change batteries every month makes this completely a waste of money.

Love this laser . Thank you Amazon for the great service
Bought this Viridan Reactor laser sight for my Shield 9mm and love it. No button to have to find when you draw your weapon, comes on automatically and turns off when you reholster the weapon. Easy to zero in and holds zero. Have this laser on my Shield and Kahr cm45. I highly recommend this laser sight.
I really enjoy collecting airsoft and BB guns. This is one of the ones I really enjoy shooting. The only thing I would change for this pistol is having the safety working where it would be on an actual M9 Berretta. But in my opinion, I think this is a good BB gun when you first start collecting airsoft/BB guns!
Very cool gun, even breaks down, or field strips, like the real beretta fs92. Push in oblong button on right side of pistol (looking from back of gun) and twist switch on left side of gun, remove the oblong button. Slide out the switch by pulling it out of the left side of the gun. Pull slide forward off gun frame. Shoots nicely too, great bb spring gun overall
After being a little doubtful about this gun due to all of the negative reviews, I still decided to buy it. It, along with the Daisy Powerline 201, is one of the only non-Co2 BB guns on the market, which is the reason why I wanted it in the first place. Also, it is sold at a very low price. After firing 13 shots at a BB target, it proved to be a very reliable and fairly accurate pistol. It is not as powerful as other BB guns, but it is not incredibly weak either. The Powerline 340 will put a hole through thick cardboard. Thus, I think it is a great BB pistol for a beginner, as well as any other skill level.
- Low Cost
- Moderate Power (240 fps)
- Extremely Lightweight (Made mostly out of plastic)
- Good Sights
- Easy-to-use magazine
- Not as powerful as many other BB guns on the market
- Slightly clunky
Bought one and it kept jamming so I bought a second one. It jammed the first time and never even fired once. I now have 2 of these and neither one works. It is very frustrating. My recommendation is to purchase something else!
This pistol looks pretty nice and arrived in working order with no broken parts. It's built nearly completely of plastic, some may find the feather weight to be off-putting. I found that even at 3 yards soda can hits may or may not occur, plenty of flyers in between making your mark. I found working the fairly stiff slide to be pretty uncomfortable. Although the molded levers, sites, and widgets look nice, they tend to dig, or rub the hand while cocking. This pistol comes nowhere near the quality in some of the older builds in this category. The old Daisy 188, or Marksman repeater will out perform this hands down in all regards. Due to the stiff cocking slide and poor accuracy I would not recommend this as a youth trainer. I can see an application for trigger/safety discipline as an adult trainer. Others may have different experiences, I have only taken a look at this one example. You get what you pay for but not a single cent of value more. Just my opinion, I don't claim to be an expert.
Pretty good pistol works as intended and shipped very fast.
I got this as a costume prop, I have no BBs yet but I've just ordered some. But this dose look real so it will go well with my costume, then I could also probably use this for self defense with how real it looks. If the look alone dose fend anyone off. If not a BB to the eye should.
Im really happy with the Daisy Powerline 340, it feels really confortable in my hand. Its not too heavy, but not too light either. I personally bought it to use it as a prop in some futere videos I plan to make, but it does work perfectly. Its a good quality BB gun for a really good price. Totally recomend buying one.
This BB gun is really good for the price it's amazing for going out and plinking with it and the polymer is pretty good so don't be afraid if you drop it once or twice as long as you're not using it as a hammer will last you a good long while but nothing is perfect so here are my two flaws with this gun number one accuracy is poor number two the trigger is not metal but overall I think it's very good so I do recommend it
I’m fairly new to BB Guns and this is definitely a perfect beginners gun. It looks and feels great and is even better if you’re trying to use it as a prop for a video or skit! Definitely recommend if you’re looking for something realistic looking and simple!
This gun is fantastic and shoots faster than I had anticipated.
As you can see from my pictures, I shot at a tree from 40 feet away and the BBs penetrated both the bark and underlying wood.
Look and Feel:
This gun is not small by any means. With regard to size it is a true-to-life replica. The weight distribution is located mostly in the handle and allows it to rest comfortably in your hand. Although it does have a fairly noticeable plastic feel, the gun still maintains a solid build and can pass as real.
Accuracy and Power:
I set the gun on a tripod and marked a piece of wood at the point where my sight was aimed. I then shot and marked the point where the BB actually hit in order to measure the drop from different distances. At 40 feet the drop is less than 1/4inch. At 60 feet the drop was measured at 3/4 of an inch. At 80 feet the drop became more prevalent and measured in at a little over 1 and a half inches. At 100 feet the drop was measured as 2 inches, and at that distance the BBs also started to slightly curve with the prevailing wind. I started the test with a full cartridge of CO2.
Lifespan of CO2 cartridge size:
Overall the C02 cartridges offered a steady 90 shots worth of decently accurate trigger pulls. After that the depletion of air became more evident as each shot started to drop more and more. Overall: 90 decently accurate and powerful shots, 40 lob shots, and 10 shots that travel no more than 10 feet. I recorded an average of 150 shots per CO2 cartridge.
This is not a quick pour reload gun. The magazine holds 20 BBs and you have to insert them into the clip one by one. I often find myself spending more time reloading than shooting.
The magazine clip has a tendency to jam. For every 5 magazine loads I would insert I would say 2 of them ended up in a jam. At which point I had to remove the magazine, remove the clogged BB, and reinsert the magazine (sometimes I had to do this 2-3 times until finally the top BB was properly pushed into the chamber).
Item is great, I liked it and ordered and did not read anything at all because some reviews were good. If you plan to order it, make sure to order co2 and other stuff as well. Doesnt come with any.
I have the Umx MandP 40. As well as their HK Usp. And a crosman 1911 tactical. Of the four pistols. The umarex M&P is the most accurate, but the XBG is not far behind. And is a great value and overall fun lil' gun!
Update: I opened the gun up and smeared super lube over everything inside that moves. This made a huge difference in how smooth the trigger action is. The effort is much lower and less gritty, more buttery. I suggest you do this. All you do is remove the one screw on top and pull off the slide.
This is the best value co2 bb pistol out there. After lubing the action and a few hundred trigger pulls it's now an acceptable but very long DA trigger. You get used to staging the trigger for more accurate shots, but you can pull pretty fast and empty the mag too. I'm happy with the accuracy under 10 yards and the power is nice.
This thing hits hard. I have both the umarex Colt Commander and the PPK/S and they are much better all steel replicas with blowback- but they're weak shooters. The xbg is better for destroying cans and clays. I like the stick magazine, it works well and they're cheap to replace and much quicker to reload than the pistols above. Honestly I reach for the xbg the most now due to the higher fps, more shots per charge, and faster reloading. It tucks iwb real nice and comfy too for capping cans in the yard concealed carry style.
Overall I'm very happy with it. The grip is nice although it's rather toy like with regard to weight. It looks just like a Springfield xd which isn't terrible.
I’ve only opened it today and fired 4 rounds of BB’s - the aim is surprisingly true. Powerful too - the BB’s kicked up a hole in the lawn and I doubt they’ll resurface anytime soon. I needed something for camping in rattlesnake territory - this will do it. I hope I don’t have to use it. The rattler we came across last year was a young Western and very docile (my dog unknowingly sat on it) and it quickly slithered away instead of striking. But we have more than Westerns out there - some more aggressive rattler species - that’s where this gun comes in. Again, my hope is that the snakes and I can peacefully coexist for a few days. I figured I’d need a few days to learn the aim but nope - the sites are accurate - done. Highly recommend. My other is a Colt Defender so this was surprisingly light in comparison and I assumed it would be weaker too - but I don’t think it is. Buy it - it’s $30 well spent. Use responsibly - these use metal BB’s - they are powerful and they absolutely can be deadly.
I bought this gun a while back but the co2 just arrived, I was thrilled to begin shooting but when I out the co2 in, the gun had a leak that spilled everything out. I wasted 10 cartridges and didn't get a single shot out of it. I took it to the professional and they said it was busted BEFORE I EVEN USED IT. Wasted over 60$ on something that didn't even work. Don't buy.
Best airgun in my collection. Absolutely love it!
Feels kinda cheap. Doesnt fire every time. Read all directions and it still does'nt work everytime. Applied oil to the mechs in hopes it would help but it still lacks the consistincy to fire all bb's. Had to keep removing the clip and a bb would fall out. Not happy with this gun. I own a crossman that works mint and a sig sauer mpx thats reliable. Im not new to pellets or bbs'. Not recommending this gun. I will do more research on this, but as of now im disappointed in the consistincy of this gun.UPDATE. 7/29. I recieved a new replacement gun today from amazons great customer service (you guys rock!) Just ran 6 clips and had the same issue with it not firing all the bbs'. It happened fewer times but still happens at least twice a clip. Gun has great accuracy! Handles awesome but it just does'nt work everytime. I've tried waiting 5 secs between shots. Same result. I even took the time to respond to the manufacture who commented on my review.Had to leave a message which hasn't been returned. Bogus i tell ya! Good thing umarex does'nt make real firearms.
Pretty accurate from 20 to 40 yards. Beware when your co2 is getting low. You can hear the pop get softer. From time to time it will miss fire from too many bb’s being released from the clip. I recommend getting a a loader. Very powerful.
Shoots good shoots straight 19 bbs per clip need to buy extra clips, $30 well worth it, I'd advise buying Umarex co2 cartridges also wanting the Umarex storm it's automatic with 30 burst rounds 430fps takes x2 co2 cartridges Bad A**
these work great on the shelf in my safe, I can store 12 handguns in a minimum of space with 2 , much less than the old wire rack's I had in there, with 2 of these I can store all 12 of my handguns in a neat row across the shelf and they are easy to get to and put back.
Very simple yet very effective! I combined 2 6 gun and 1 3 gun using threaded rods. The results speak for them selves!
I ordered a pair of these six-gun holders to use side-by-side because that's all will fit in my relatively small safe. Contrary to the listing details that say these are "OD green" they are really black (or such a dark green that you'd casually call them "black" if you saw them).
I read a number of reviews and wasn't exactly clear on whether they'd hold large-frame long-barrel revolvers (e.g. .44 magnum with a 9-inch barrel), small-frame long-barrel revolvers (e.g. .357 with a 6-inch barrel), large-frame short-barrel revolvers (e.g. .44 magnum 4-inch barrel), small-frame short-barrel revolvers revolver (e.g. .357 2-inch barrel), and a Dessert Eagle (because everyone NEEDS a Desert Eagle). I'm happy to report-- amazingly-- they ALL fit! Standard automatics are all a given (e.g. my 1911, long-slide Glock .40, and long-slide Glock 10mm all fit in easy).
The only two complaints I have is that the racks aren't easily joined. It would be nice if they were more modular and could be joined together with a longer rod. However, a bigger complaint I have is that they are a little too flexible. My .44 mag and Desert Eagle really cause the ends to bow out, and over time I'm thinking the holders will become permanently warped.
Still, overall these pistol racks are a no-brainer. They are ideal for any safe. Very happy with the purchase. I'd recommend them. Cheers to gun safety all!
I needed pistol racks to store my pistols in the gun safe and this pistol rack works good for my needs but the dividers are a bit too flimsy and if you have an all metal frame pistol that is thinner than the rack width, it does cause it to bend and you can see that with the Victory 22 pistol which is the 4th pistol from the left in the first picture. I do not like that so I keep the Victory 22 in a pocket on the safe's door. Even worse, the top dividers are very flimsy and bent if you do not put the pistol in the rack perfectly straight. Having said that, if your pistols take double stack mags, they have a wide enough base to sit in the rack and stand up straight.
In my case, this was the only rack that I could find that has felt pad like material and would hold 6 pistols. The material was important to me as the pistols go through enough putting them in and out the kydex holsters so I did not want them rubbing against hard material in the safe too. I got 2 of them and they fit in my safe perfectly with a bit of room left in the middle for a small pistol case. They are an amazing space saver and I would definitely recommend them if you are running out of pistol room in your safe.
Seems durable and the material won’t scratch or cause wear on my handguns. It can accommodate pretty much all sizes, I have everything from a snub nose Detective Special revolver to a full size 1911, I didn’t have to make any modifications.
2 things 1) no way is this modular without getting some new hardware, modular to me would indicate ease of adding or subtracting slots, don’t bet on that. 2) This is charcoal black not even close to OD green (not a big deal to me but why describe it one way and then ship,something else?)
A solid 4 stars especially at this price, I would definitely buy another one if I needed it.
So, I have a Stack-On 18 gun cabinet, and my pistols stayed on the shelf. I bought these to keep them organized, and it does the job so well I have room for more! I purchased two 6 gun holders, but two side by side was one gun slot to long. Each one is held together with three plastic rods with a press washer on either end. It was easy to customize, all I had to do was snip enough of the plastic rod off to remove one or section and replace the pressure washer. I will be recommending these to my friends, and buy again in the future!
For the money, and with free same day shipping, these things are great. They are a semi-rigid foam that has been layered together, they fit a very broad range of pistols (from little EDC stuff like Sig 365s or whatever to mini uzi / mac 11 types). Some things, like target pistols with a large or wide thumb flare can press into the foam and deform it over time. Revolvers with wide cylinders may need to be placed near something skinny, but overall these do a great job, allowing much more density in gun safes while protecting the firearm from scratches.
And you will too. Does exactly the job it's needed for. Holds your firearms in a secure position and keeps them in a nice displayed arrangement. Let my pictures do that talking.
Like others say, it’s flimsy and isn’t much support offered between guns,
if your firearm has a thick barrel or is just large overall, you’ll get a tighter, more secure fit then say, compacts or snub noses revolvers. Does the job and looks good, definitely a space saver. Overall I’d recommend.
These work great! They are the most efficient space savers I have found -- nothing fancy, but they work. Although a bit expensive, I bought two so I could make use of the modular construction and fit 7 pistols on my shelf. This is a great way to display your pistols in an attractive and safe manner, while also making them easily accessible. They are essentially just foam, but I have not had any issues with them marking my pistols and they are supposedly supposed to be resistant to absorbing solvents. So far, so good!
Works like a charm and it is very bright. I tested it by shining it at myself in the mirror and I had spots in my eyes after like when a camera flash goes off. The paddle switches are firm enough that you do not accidentally depressed them in most situations but if you were worried that you might turn it on by accident you can rotate the head of the light to put it in a safe mode where won't come on. It fits very securely on those guns I tried it on. It fits like it was made for the Glock 19, totally flush, but it was a little past the muzzle on my M&P 9C.
Great light, only a few issues. 1- the silver ring again... looks terrible. 2- The light produced is pretty yellow, bright, but yellow. 3-The on/off buttons are too far forward. 4- Only comes in black. The white light is my LED flashlight. The yellowish light is the TLR-7
Update: I only got about 5 minutes out of my battery, probably a bad battery. I ordered more, if it’s anything other than a bad battery I’ll update it.
Update 2: OK it was not the battery, technically it was not the light either. It was my Ramora sticky holster that allowed the buttons on the side of the TLR-7 to be depressed during carry and running the light down. So do NOT use soft holsters with a TLR-7.
Not yet range tested, but on initial install, I really like this light on my H&K P2000! 5x brighter than my TLR-6 (100 Lumen), and it shows! Out of the box, the strobe feature is disabled, but the instructions show how to enable it. Once you do, you can:
* Hold down the switch for TEMPORARY ON (release to turn OFF).
* Quick-press/release the switch for ON/OFF.
* Double-tap quick-press/release for STROBE (quick-press/release for OFF).
I needed to use the "Universal 1" adapter to fit my firearm, which is what is installed out of the box. Streamlight told me that the P2000 would use the same one as the VP9 since the P2000 is not listed on their documentation or web site, but it didn't fit properly, and I ended up testing all the attachments to see which was best. The "Universal-1" fit the rail groove and put the light further back, closer to my trigger guard than any other adapter. All other adapters were too fat to fit the rail groove. Once you have the proper adapter in place, you need to clip on the lock washer to make it semi-permanent.
The light barely extends past the end of my barrel (1/8"), and the controls are easy to access without having to change my (thumbs-forward) grip. The red sticker you see in one of my photos comes off. It says:
Facecap Tight = RUN
Unscrew To Detent = SAFE
It basically means that you can twist it to engage/disengage the battery so you can avoid accidentally leaving it on. I can't wait to range test it, but I don't see any issues. Might use blue lock-tight before then, just to make sure the screw doesn't loosen up on me. Oh and also, the only tool you need to install this is a coin to tighten the screw. It comes with everything else you'll need for the install.
Just came back here to post my thoughts after owning this light for three days. I love it. I don't love everything about it, but I do love it. It is so tiny. It basically turned my carry back into a "stock Glock" package. The Surefire X300U-A I had was an amazing light built like a tank, but it was bulky compared to this. For that, I very much enjoy having the TLR-7.
The controls aren't perfect. They are doable, but not perfect. If you quickly tap the controls on either side, it turns the light on/off. However, if you press and hold the controls on either side while it is off, it stays on while you have it pressed in. When you release, it turns off. So, the difference between "on" and "momentary on" is simply how long you hold it. Perhaps with training I'll grow to love it more. After using the ten-tap programming, I enabled "strobe mode". Now, when the light is off, a quick double tap to the controls on either side activates the strobe. I like having a strobe on a weapon light; That's something I always wished the Surefire I had would provide but sadly it did not.
Admittedly, I think the Surefire was probably built better. But I also paid $220 for it back in the day. I had it for about five years. It was nice. But I like the Streamlight better. The Streamlight TLR-7 is built well enough I believe. It is technically just as bright (500 lumens), even though it only has one battery instead of two. However, might I mention that the tint of the light seems a bit different? The Surefire had a much cooler (white) light. The Streamlight has a slightly warmer (yellow) light. No big deal, actually a warmer light allows you to differentiate color easier.
In my opinion, unless you are a cop/military, battery life is irrelevant. Train with it when you do, place a fresh battery in it when you start to carry it. Since either of them easily get you an hour's worth of light, in my opinion that's enough since as a civilian it's likely you would only need the light for a maximum of a few moments in the worst case scenario (unless you are John McClane, of course. But then you are a cop, which I already mentioned).
Others have provided ample reviews that hit the high points - Bright tactical light, solid build quality, water proof, reasonable pricing, all additional fitment parts provided (all you need is a screw driver) etc. So I'll focus more on my experiences with the product when ordered specifically for an HK P30SK, since there are very few choices for the HK P30SK. The TLR-7 is not an HK officially approved P30SK fitment, but I took a chance and ordered the TLR-7 for my HK P30SK and it fit the P30SK just fine, using the provided 1913-4 fitment “key". There was some very marginal overhang, but nothing to stand in the way of my having a nice Streamlight light on my P30SK. And where the two products did meet, they came together well - no disjointed or pieced together lines. And no unnecessary large space between the back of the light and the front of the trigger guard. And regarding having a slight over hang - even this could be a plus if your are concerned with the firearm being taken out of battery when pressed against an object, since it would place the barrel slightly back from the object, minimizing the chance of being taken out of battery. Pictures tell a thousand words, so see the two provide pics for the end result.
Awesome light for my P320 Compact. Activation buttons are a bit forward. But easy to use with support index finger. Either way- great deal for great price’
I really wanted to love this TLR7. But.....Let me start by saying that I am a streamlight whore. I own many different streamlight lights including other weapon lights. Streamlight flashlights are IMO the best flashlights you can buy. My biggest complaint about the TLR1 series is how far they stick out on my Glock 19s. I've always wanted a flush fitting light for the Glock 19 and I was estatic when I saw this on a Shot Show video.
First of all. The light is BRIGHT for it's size. Technology is coming a long way in the way of weapon lights. It's a tight and bright beam. Yes the light is a little bit yellow ish compared to other streamlight lights. It was never enough to bother me or even notice unless I was comparing them side by side. Runs on a single CR123 and seems to last a while because I haven't had to replace it and I've been playing with it for a while. Feels very very durable. Solid mounting.
My only complaint is that streamlight designed this light away from their normal activation switch. Only normal streamlight weapon lights the activation switch protrudes past and a little bit into the trigger guard of a Glock 19. The activation switch on the TLR7 light, because of it's size, sits just forward of the trigger guard. I have medium sized hands and this puts the activation switch out of my reach without changing grip and rocking my hand forward. I can activate it support hand if I alter a thumb forward grip slightly.
This won't be an issue for someone with large hands and made not even be an issue for another with medium hands but it was an issue for me. Overall still a solid light made by Streamlight.
Bought to use on Glock G45, nice well made light that fits perfectly using the standard adaptor.
Was worried about the ability to activate the light with no grip adjustments in either hand, trigger finger falls onto light switch naturally with no grip changes. As you can see from the photo this light fits the G45/ G17 frame perfectly.
Nice beam output with well defined hot spot and adequate spill to fill a typical size room without actually pointing the firearm at a target. I have found there to plenty of light to ID a target while pointing to firearm at the floor a few feet in front of me no need to sweep the room to get a clear idea as to threats.
Easy to switch to strobe mode, not sure if I will keep the strobe mode turned on ... I like the simple controls, one tap for steady light and hold for momentary simple gross motor skills. Well worth the price paid.
I like it. The 7s push button switch is definitely different than the TLR-1 series rocker arm style, but it all comes down to (re)training.
The new 7/8 designed is definitely better in that you can say goodbye to broken battery doors than can happen with the 1 series. I'm actually waiting on a replacement battery door for my busted TLR1 to arrive tomorrow.
I particularly like the bezel lockout feature that effectively renders the light OFF so as not to have it turn on when you don't need the light to be in service. Just a 1/4 turn and its hard OFF or ON and actuated by the buttons.
The TLR-7/8 is more sleek, but it's "only" 500 lumens as compared to the 800 lumen TLR-1 HL. The size reduction is an improvement, not to mention a 150 lumens increase over the TLR-1.
Photos with a G17 and G19.
Pros: my hands/ at least fingers are long so hitting the pad to turn on the light is a breeze, however this can be a con for those who may be used to an APLc or have smaller hands. It is Very tiny package with a low profile so it seems to fit flush on my carry opts (sig x-carry & Glock 19). 500 Lumens with the aforementioned size is unheard of at least with lighg that is easy to find holsters for in my opinion. It also comes with adapter plates for mounting to specific rails which is a plus. The instruction manual will let you know the right adapter for you pistol. If your pistol isn’t present there is a universal option however I would advise to do some research and/or call stream light. Very well made I’ve dropped it a number of times during install. Range wise so far only 200 rds and it stays on through shots. You have a strobe option via rapidly pressing the activation button 10 times and on the 10th press hold down until the light strobes then cuts off on its own. Lastly if you’re worried about battery life you can manually turn the device off without having to remove the battery or light from the gun.
Cons: installation...that little lock key piece gave me a headache (due to Human errors lol)
All in All, it’s worth every penny. I would recommend to anyone.
Don't know how i could complain. It's everythingsit's supposed to be. My wife's. 380 and my. 40 fit nicely and it seems pretty secure. i got it to keep our 6 yr old from stumbling on them. It's perfect for that.
I bought the First Alert 5200DF for the purpose of storing a handgun and 2 spare magazines. My purpose is to secure my home defense pistol,due to having curious children in the home. This will fit a full size handgun inside with room to spare. I have a Springfield XD 4" and 3" Sub Compact model and they both perfectly with room for 1 magazine. Both pistols have weapon lights on them. If I were to remove the lights I'd have enough room for additional spare magazines
It works as described. The instructions and programming the combination are straight forward and easily done in less than five minutes tops. The locking mechanism looks very stout it appears to be casted vs stamped sheet metal like other brands, I was very impressed with that feature. If you're looking for an affordable safe to secure valuables or a firearm. This safe should be considered as a viable option. I own two other small safes which were much more expensive. The First Alert safe is of the same quality and craftsmanship as other top tier safes.
Very pleased well made easy to operate Good value Holds full size FNS 40 w/ crimson trace rail master & extra mag Plus 357 revolver
awesome gun safe. easy to operate and surprisingly heavy duty for its size. fits my Sig 226 with attached laser/light combo and extra mags easily, with extra room to spare.
It works as expected. It does have a low battery indicator. It is fairly quiet. It is heavy. It is sturdy. It is easy to program. Reviewers that seem to struggle with this device, have trouble with batteries, and who don't read the provided instructions perhaps should not be allowed to own a handgun in the first place.
While installing it on a shelf it accidentally fell fully open from a height of 5 feet onto a solid hardwood floor. It landed directly on the keypad. It locked me out for 4 minutes. That's it!!! It survived and still works fine!
Durable and roomy. This vault seems much more heavy duty than the others I've examined. The locking mechanism seems much more durable and protected as does the way the cable retention inside the vault is designed. Easy to set up. Took 10 mins to set a combo and install in my car.
Holds a full size combat pistol with room to spare.
Perfect small safe for our gun as well as other small items. It fits our 38mm easily and the code is secure yet simple enough that we would be able to get into it in an emergency (we have it next to our bed). We have young children and I feel confident they cannot get into the safe... although we always put it away during the day. The safe is sturdy and made well. Worth the money.
Most of us will use this as a gun safe and it does that job well. Nicely padded inside and very easy to set up. You can easily fit two decent sized guns in this safe. I like having a manual key in addition to the electronic keypad. My one gripe is with the keypad only having numbers 1-4. Even though you can make your own code (up to eight digits) , they all have to be between 1-4. Over all though, this is well built and for the price it is really nice!
Nicest handgun safe I've ever seen for under $50... I will get another. It's engineered well and functions perfectly. No problem programming... anyone having difficulty with it is not doing it right!
It's pretty sturdy. Unlocks every time. It's not silent but that's not an issue for me. You can't mount it according to the manufacturer but it can be cabled. As you can see in the picture it houses a sig 238 & 938 plus a Ruger lcr 9mm.
This is my second Speedvault. The first was placed in a concealed spot so looks didn't matter but the second was going to be placed in a rather open area so the vault needed to blend. As Henry Ford said "You can have any color car you want, so long as it's black" seems to be Speedvault's mantra too. I decided to strip the vault down to it's shell right out of the box, easy.... Then I spray painted the vault antique white to blend with the wall and I think the results look good.
HonestReview- This is my first gun safe/vault, whatever you want to call it. I purchased it for 3 reasons: 1. to keep my kids from having access to my firearm. 2. quick access to my firearm. 3. to keep intruders from getting to my firearm (if I'm in a different room). I have 3 pistols at the moment that's all placed in different locations in my house with a lock on it. The GunVault SV 500 is simply awesome but with some minor flaws. The vault is strong enough and secure enough to keep the kids from accessing it. The combination is actually really easy to use and program, and the good thing about the combination is that you have the option to make the code simple (using 1 digit entry) or really complicated (using a combination of numbers as 1 entry). The LED light inside is a nice touch, I wish it was on just a tad little longer though, not a big deal. The foam inside is very nice and secure, keeps your pistol from moving, only downfall is that if you have a laser light, you will need to modify the foam which is not fun. Removable foam would have been nice, but I know they didn't do that because when you remove your gun the foam would have came out with it. I like that this vault is big enough to secure your pistol and also extra magazine on the sides of your pistol (check out my pics as a reference). You can also cut some foam out so you can slide your magazine in there and store it that way. There is a lot of ways to do it, just gotta be creative.
My real issues with the vault are due to the hardware, specifically the mounting plate screws provided. They are cheap and short and needs to be replaced if you want this vault to be really secure from burglary (check out my pics to see the screw provided its about 1/2" bite). With the screws provided I feel that if I gave a few kicks/stomps to this mounted vault, it would come off fairly easily. But with the self tapping lag screws I bought from Homedepot (watch the head size) this is now 10x harder to get off. Depending on where you are mounting it (night stand, computer desk, stud on the wall) the length of the screw you're going to use is going to vary obviously. The stud on the wall is going to be the best option, however not everyone has that option. Mine is currently mounted to the inside of my computer desk using 4 lag screws from Home Depot and one nut/bolt/washer combo (had to drill the hole on the plate myself). Now I believe this system is secure. The only way a burglar is going to get access to that firearm is by breaking down the computer desk first, then taking the whole safe with him so he can pry it open later at his leisure. Another issue is the thumb screws provided (mounts the vault itself to the base plate), they are small as well and also a weak point. I haven't gotten to upgrading that part yet, but will update this with my suggestions when I get there. Please see my pics for more details on this vault. Overall I am very pleased with this vault that I actually ordered another one for my bedroom.
Im going to paste the issue and email I sent to amazon regarding the gun vault- Please Read!! Im having a problem with your product and hope you are going to stand behind your product. I purchased the SV500. Unfortunately it drains the batteries quickly, which is a known fact about this product. Here is the problem. The battery has drained and when I used the provided key, the entire tubular lock collapsed into the safe. Its very scary that inserting a key into a safe will cause it to fail. My personal defense weapon is inside the safe. Obviously, i have to crack it open somehow to retrieve my pistol, but now Im out a safe that I purchased for $137.15. Again, I am hoping that you will stand behind your product and give me solutions. Im assuming the speed vault was faulty. I don't think this is a normal occurrence, especially for a safe that is supposedly reliable. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated. I will post pics regarding the issue. I will also post a pic of the the lock is supposed to look like vs what happened with mine gun vault the moment I inserted the key. Very scary to know that if there was an emergency and the battery was drained, the key would not do me any good as well. Very scary, I can NOT recommend this product at this time. Seems like mine was a defect... The final picture is a different safe- this is what a tubular lock is supposed to look like. Not a gaping collapsed hole when the key is inserted!!!!
This is a really neat product. I attached it to my nightstand, so it is pretty well hidden between my nightstand and my bed, and it holds my SIG securely and safely. I like the fact that I have to enter a code, because if I'm not awake enough to enter a code, I'm not awake enough to handle a semi-automatic weapon. It installed well, it operates great, and I think I'll be buying one for under my desk at my office.
The biggest reason I wanted it was because the grandkids come over a lot, and I wanted my weapons safe from their little hands, yet easily accessible in an emergency. The attached picture shows how nicely the unit fits (hides) between my nightstand and bed.
We bought this speedvault to store a small-frame revolver (Ruger SP101) in a convenient location. It fits the revolver just fine and provides quick access. The default setting from the factory is for the keypad to beep each time a button is pressed, but that can be changed to silent. However, the mechanism that opens the latch to allow the drawer to drop open is quite loud and most certainly could draw the attention of an assailant.
I had previously given this safe a 4 star rating but have changed it to a 3 because it failed to open for me the other day. I assume the issue was a low battery since putting a fresh battery in fixed it, at least for now. The gun safe gave me no warning that the battery had gotten low. I'm not sure if it's supposed to or not, but it would seem like this would be an important feature. I would hate to be fumbling around looking for the key if it fails to open via the keypad when I really need it.
Saw several comments via reviews and numerous websites, each offering their $.02 on different "bedside safes" and read several reviews from several who actually seem to be as gun savvy as i am and decided on this product. After drilling with this a few times, i'm happy with the installation process and happy with the product overall. In the attached picture, i've installed my SV500 to the side of my nightstand. Directions in the manual are simple and easy to understand and very to the point. Just like any actual long-gun safe, i'd recommend replacing the 9V at LEAST once a year. My armament has always been in crafty areas or hidden behind couch cushions and such but now with kids i've had to "kid-proof" the house a bit more. Installation is a simple 1-beer job. Only "gripe" is more of a typo in the manual when referencing the screws used to install the shell to the bracket.
Keep in mind, the point of this gun vault is not to be theft-proof to the N-th degree, but more so to kid-proof your pistol from little ones and teens and yet still store your pistol within easy reach of where ever you want for such purposes of storage during sleeping or working, the office under the desk even.
The instructions could be better. For example, there is a rubber bumper/foot on a small metal bracket that is included in the parts bag, yet the instructions don't even mention it being included, let alone what to do with it. Well, a little brainpower and I figured out it's to keep the drawer from slamming open against the hinge when the box opens. I won't detract a star, but the instructions are "meh."
But it's the product itself I'm reviewing and it is fabulous. The mounting bracket/method is so simple, yet effective. The safe mounts from the back or the left/right sides. The only possible drawback for a user is that it must be mounted upright as it depends on gravity to make the door "fall open" after the lock releases. I realize some folks have mounted it sideways and if it works for them, then great, but it's not a recommended mounting method. When I press the buttons I want this thing to open and now; not taking any chances.
The fact that you can have multiple buttons count as "one digit" of the combination is a huge plus and adds substantially to the possible number of combinations you can have.
The main reason you buy a small safe like this is not to prevent someone from stealing your gun. Unless you mount it to a concrete wall with toggle bolts, you can probably kick the safe free and walk away with it. The reason you buy this safe is to keep the little, curious ones from finding your handgun in your desk drawer and the unthinkable happening.
Solid safe, functions very well, even has an LED light inside that stays on for about 10 seconds after the door opens. Highly recommended.
Added some pictures of how I have it installed. As you can see...or not....you can't really see it even when you're looking right at it. Very happy with this product.
Its attached to my bed post ready to be accesed at any time(hopefully I never have the need). I own a glock17 and it fits like a glove. The materials and paint seem like top quality,the padding hugs the gun well, there is not much room for anything else, Would totally purchase a second one(once I get my wife to agree to place one ON HER SIDEOF THE BED)
I like that I can have a firearm ready to go in seconds and still prevent the kids from getting to it.
Only problem is that out of the box the foam inside the vault doesn't allow for a tactical light mounted on a pistol. I had to cut foam out of mine and though it looks jacked up it works well now.
The light inside is awesome!
I'm very pleased with my Daisy Model 426 Pistol, durable, shoots very accurate, easy to operate, overall I'm a happy customer.
Great cheap bb gun! One of my favorites. Pretty accurate and not too loud. Can't really ask for more for this price. Very light and easy to load. Accuracy is not too bad and pretty powerful! Pretty sturdy. Would buy it again.
Regarding "Mr. Presti"...u just better hope my dog never escapes n gets the same treatment as people can learn their lesson in similar fashions. THE DOG PROBABLY JUST DOESN'T LIKE YOU! They know when they see bad people and boxers are one of the least aggressive breeds out there...just smart.
The gun is great for the $$$ btw!! $20??? Don't expect a Smith&Wesson!
This Crosman PSM45 is the best low velocity spring air pistol that I have!
I also have a Daisy powerline 201 & powerline 340, as well as a marksman 2002 and this crosman out does them all.
It works the same as spring airsoft pistols and is really fun to shoot.
I added a rubber Glock grip sleeve, which fit perfectly.
I think this air pistol looks like it's based on design elements of a Glock 17.
I would like to have a stronger spring so this pistol shot a bit harder, but it seems to be OK for penetrating cardboard, which makes it great for indoor target practice.
It's fun to shoot and fits in the hand nicely just don't expect to do any serious shooting with it. Just like most BB guns of this sort, including rifles you never know where the BB is going to hit. The target is at about 12' and was shot off a rest.
This pistol Is one of the best Real Firearm Training Tools. Very well Made ! Bigger The A Glock G17 & G22 . Fits all Glock lights and lasers ! Also great for cosplay. Just paint Orange front tip to keep the PD and or ATF off you But Not Mandated ! Update : Best Spring Pistol Ever ! If Cleaned , Oiled ! And Followed All instructions ! No Jams ! This Pistol Is For Paper Target Practice ! & Safe indoor training . Will Purchase 5 more Soon For Gifts!
Great gun for the price! I love revolvers and this one looks big and bad. Mounting rails on top and bottom. I mounted a red dot scope on mine. The gun was pretty accurate with just the iron sights. The scope made it extremely accurate.
This gun is also capable of shooting pellets. I ordered a set of pellet magazines which were for the COLT 44 revolver. Both guns used the same bb magazines so the pellet magazine for that gun also works with this one. That was another plus for this gun.
Can't go wrong with the Brodax, especially at this price point!
[[VIDEOID:d754d688e6d0a7a3c88d17d7c6f5ccc3]] This BB gun is quite amazing. It’s got some weight which makes it very nice, the internals are all metal and very well constructed. The plastic is very very durable and very hard to scratch. Out of the box the the looks wowed me, very well construction and design very eye appealing. I have found that when loading the gun, you will want to use Steel BB’s as those fit best into the rotary mags. The hex key built into the handle for me was very easy to get to and makes it a lot more convenient than lugging a hex key around. When inserting your CO2 you will want to put a dab of pellgun oil on the top of the cartridge, this allows lubrication for the puncture needle and the O-ring within the gun and keeps a seal. The gun is pretty accurate and I have so far cycled about 100 bb’s through it, 65-70 is when you’ll need to exchange CO2 cartridges. The gun is very strong, I shot it at about 50 feet at a piece of wood and it stuck into it. I also shot metal targets at about 50 feet and it leaves a noticeable dent in them. I choose to use single action as it makes the trigger weight less, although it does shoot as double as well. The noise produced from this gun is pretty intimidating, indoors it sounds close to a .22, outdoors it’s about as loud as a clap. Overall I am VERY impressed with this product and HIGHLY recommend it.
This gun is great and its fun to shoot but I keep having problems with the BB's staying in the cylinder. I have been using the standard Crossman bulk BB's but I have some BB's from Umarex on the way so hopefully that clears that up.
Whatever small issues it has it's definately a mean looking revolver. The barrel terminates about a half inch before the end so it really looks like a large caliber revolver even at short distance. The two rails give you plenty of space to mount sights, lasers, flashlights, or all three and the holographic sight I have on mine is on there solid and straight.
All in all I would 100% recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun BB gun with a low price point. Pick one up.
I really like this air pistol. It is fun to shoot and looks bad ass. I added a little red/green dot sight to mine but it was accurate before that with its fixed sights. I like using it in my backyard to shoot cans while I'm grilling.
Great pistol for the money. Shoots BBS straight and has a substantial feel in the hand. I like the grip angle, it feels like classic revolver and looks like a beast.
Nice single action trigger. DA is squishy and imprecise like most other revolvers, but shooting fast just wastes co2 anyhow. If I take a few seconds between shots I'll get about 80 per cartridge, but unloading all 10 a couple times brings that way down.
Rail space is very generous and the sights are accurate enough. I used a sharp knife to knock down a few rough edges and casting marks around the sight areas- but really what I need is a $20 red dot for my $25 pistol. I put some cheap plastic airsoft accessories on it and this thing is ready for some tactical night plinking...
This is my favorite bb pistol so far.
Like the 10 round magazine. I use Hornady black diamond BBs they fit snug and don't fall out. I haven't tried other's but these work. I cannot use open sights with my eyesight so I put a field sport red/green dot sight $20.00 on it.
The trigger action on this is just right for me, allowing more steady shots.
Can't believe how nice this is for $35
I shoot at 25 feet and it's pretty accurate with the red dot.
The action on this is the same as the python 357 which I also own. People wonder if the pythons pellet cartridges will work in the brodax. In my opinion they do and very well. Just remember the pellets load into the back of the metal cartridge whereas bbs load into the front of the plastic cartridges. Pyramid air sells a 3 pack for abt $10.
that is relly good toy ，i like it
5 stars to this bad ass gun weighs close 2 pounds umarex should sell more guns like this for the low price they would sell good!!!!! Badass guns will recommend
A tad too loud if you live in an apartment with neighbors other than that way worth the money spent
Great looking BB gun!
This is a great cleaning kit. It comes with everything you could need and then some to do pretty much every gun imaginable. Plus the hard plastic case is a bonus as it keeps everything organized and secure. Your gun cleaning days just got easier.
I was very impressed by the build quality of this kit. This company has literally thought of just about everything a gun owner would need to clean and maintain their firearms, airguns and black powder guns. I own all three and am blown away by all the quality and value packed into this kit. Well thought out and organized and this kit is surely to keep you organized after you use the tools in it. Blown away and the overall value of so much for so little! Add to that the lifetime warranty and... is it my birthday?!? You won't be disappointed in this purchase!
First off let me state that I enjoy cleaning my guns after a day or shooting, so I actually use the heck out of cleaning tools, I picked this one up to try, because I was running low on stuff and it seemed like a very complete kit. Right out of the box I was impressed. It made quick cleanup work of the firearms I had shot that day, and was all in one simple kit so everything has a place to go once its done. I really like it and the mat was a nice touch!
The box comes with basically everything you need except for the cleaning solvent. As seen in the pictures, it's got the brass rods that come with extensions for guns of varying lengths, cleaning cloths to get you started, mops and jags for different sized barrels. Brass cleaning brushes prevent damage to the barrel. The cleaning cloths aren't the best, but I consider those extra anyways. It comes with empty bottles for whatever you need and a small cleaning mat, which is a bonus.
Every thing worked fine for me. All the pieces fit together snuggly. Some other reviews mention the rods being delicate, but I didn't have any trouble pushing cleaning cloths through the barrel with them. I cleaned my .22 rifle and used the smallest rods. I can't imagine being careless enough to break any rods during normal use, but they look like they may bend / break at the screw threads if you accidentally tweak them or something since the threads aren't that long. I got the premium version, so perhaps my tools are higher quality than the regular one.
Price wise, it sits at $59.99 which is between cheap cleaning kits around $30 and more expensive ones around $140, which seem to just come with cleaning solvent and flexible barrel cleaners.
This kit is well rounded and complete for multiple calibers. It has everything you will need just like the description states. It also has two bottles one for cleaner and the other for oil.
Cheap China made products inside the case. The mat has a typo in the SECOND AMENDMENT! The company is well aware of the error and is still selling the kits with the misprinted mats.
This was purchased as a Christmas gift. By the time it wa s gifted, the return window was closed. One of the cleaning brushes was rusted and a cleaning piece has a chunk out of it.
After posting less than stellar review, customer service contacted me and waived the 30 day return window and upgraded the kit. Their customer service was excellent.
The tool is really functional,convenient and easy to carry,the parts in the tool are also very completed with good quality, i highly recommend it !
Best gun cleaning kit I’ve ever owned so far!! Cleaning accessories for All Calibers from .22 to .50 are included with neat design for easy using. The quality is superior, not like the ones made of fragile plastic! Save my time every time I use it. Highly recommend I’d say.
Way beyond my expectation, wish I could find this earlier. I have shotgun, pistol and rifles at home, and I had to find the matched clean toolkit every time I purchased a new one, until I found this. It covers all aspects of my regular gun maintaining requirements, and it serves me well so far. Used it for cleaning my Remington 870, 700 and glock, fantastic job. Good quality, probably the one of the best you could find in this price range. Tools fit into the case well, as long as you open it on the right side. I like the oil injector, makes some of my works much easier. It doesn’t come with any solution, you have to purchase it separately
My son absolutely loved these guns. They are the same size of a real Springfield 1911 pistol.
Gun cleaning kit. Has a lot more wipes then I thought. Case rigid and strong zipper.
Barrel wire brushes fit snug on brass handle. Tooth brush thingy little loose on brass handle.
Have full size pistol so you can see in picks the actual size of case. Fits in shooter bag or gun case.
For price not complaining.
Has every accessory you'll need, except the cleaning fluid. Small bristles don't scratch and work well inside the barrel. Can make handle long or short .. happy with the selection of cleaning variations with this.
Cleaning kit came without packaging. Just the zippered case, and a barcoded sticker on the outside of the case.
Inside everything appears to be in place as described in the description. I received a LOT more cleaning patches than expected, but that's not a bad thing.
Upon first glance the parts look to be put together well for the price. Nothing flexed or was prone to easily bending or breaking. It took me a while to notice, but all the bore brushes jags are etched with the caliber they're designed for. It's something you'll see if you're concerned as to which piece to use with your gun, but simple use, you wouldn't notice it unless you were looking for it. The zipper appears to be good quality.
The threads of the rods feel a bit rough, but I figure after a few uses, they'll screw on easier.
The 22 brush is tight to the point where I couldn't force it through the barrel without potentially bending the brush or rod. The 9mm was reasonably tight, the 40 and 45cal are of the tightness you'd expect with regards to gun barrels.
For a traveling cleaning kit, this is pretty good. My only complaint/desire is a place to store small bottle of cleaner. Though I'm sure if I remove the cleaning patches, I can make room with a 4oz bottle of cleaning solution.
A cleaning kit is just a few brushes but this one came without one of the brushes. Not that big a deal I can always use an old toothbrush. But if it comes with missing pieces that just isn’t a great way to do business.
This bb gun is so good it shoots far and its better than a $40 pistol.The bb gun has safe mode and fire mode witch i like.If you ever get this bb gun jammed it so easy to fix without disarming it.
To fix jam
1.Take out clip
2.Cock it back and hold it
3.Push a hard thin stick or the ink tube of a pen inside the orange tube.
4.Expect ur bbs that are jammed to come out of the clip. :)
It's an amazing gun, and my first. I totally recommend this, but just remember this is only $8 so don't expect perfection. it will jam, but to fix it just leave it cocked back and take the mag out, and a couple bbs will fall out. And of course it depends which bbs you use. if you use the bbs it comes with it won't shoot accurately and it's most likely to jam. But I used UHC Precision Ground Premium 6mm plastic airsoft BBs, 0.20g, 2000 rds, white
and it worked great!!! And treat it with care, make sure you don't cock it back too hard or bang it on anything. other than that it's a great gun!! and shipping came really fast!!! If you want it, get it because it will be worth the money, trust me!!
This is a sturdy built pistol. It is perfect for a conceled pistol for a airsoft battle. It has a fps of 180, and it holds a lot of 6mm bbs.
From my mediocre knowledge about Airsoft I assume this is a good gun as it does not jam and goes a good distance
Fun for shooting around with in the backyard. It's a great first gun for beginners who just want to practice, but don't even consider bringing this into a competitive airsoft war
I bought this gun for strictly casual target shooting, 5-15 yards at most. It is extremely accurate for the price of the gun. Usually about every 3rd or 4th shot, the normal, tight spread would get a couple inches higher. Other than that, for the price, this gun is absolutely fantastic. And as long as you aren't beating it with a hammer when you mess with it, it won't break. I've had it for about 24 hours and have put probably 7 or 8 full magazines through it and it is still just as sturdy as it was when it came out of the box. Overall this gun is fantastic for casual shooting.
[[VIDEOID:8034a677832d580ca0b826be979cc691]] Love this pistol really nice and sturdy I did not except this to be much but it blew my mine it shoots better than a 20 dollar pistol and it's accurate! It's pretty small and a little bit heavy! What I like about it is that it has safety mode to I recommend this to anyone!!(:
#1 it's firm
#3easy to use
#4good aim sight
#1a little to small
#2does not come with that much bbs
I RECOMEND THIS GUN
I bought this toy gun for my son for Halloween, it served its purpose came in on time. The only thing is that the pellets fall out when u tilt the gun forward, other than that no other problems.
Ugh... Should have read more! Did not realize they were real BB guns ???? My son loved them... Me, well I guess it happened sooner than later! Worked great for his costume and more...
Pretty good for the price and shoots pretty far
The thing that is hardest to visualize when buying online is size. So I'm including a picture with a gun in the case so you all can get a better perspective. To me this case is bigger than the online picture. That's not a complaint. It would have been a problem if it were too small. I think the case is a bargain for the price and quality.
There's a 12" ruler in the picture with a full size auto and I have another 4" ample room left over in this case on the left side.
For $8.95 including prime shipping all handguns can have a good quality case.
This is great fits my Ruger 22/45 LITE, holds the pistol with red dot sight and the compensator on and still has room for 4 clips (5 if one in the pistol). Just wish the holes for the padlocks didn't require such a deep/wide lock. The lock that came with the gun can't fit over the handle into the lock holes. To be fair this isn't going to keep someone determined to get to your gun out, I just want it to move the gun to/from the range.
As other reviews have said the back hinge can probably be popped open real easy, however I didn't buy this case for security. I purchased it for storing my weapons and traveling back and forth to the range. It's large enough to hold my S&W SD9VE and my Canik TA9SA as well as spare clips (see photo)
My Beretta Neo came with a very lack luster case. I wanted something that would be big enough to accommodate my pistol, a sight (if I ever add one), magazines and maybe any other accessories I purchase later. I also wanted something large enough to be a range carry case for whatever I felt like practicing with that day. Personally, being lockable wasn't a driving factor (no kids in the house), but is a nice touch. After some time searching big box stores, and amazon for the right case I landed on this one. Great choice for any longer handgun (including 6" barrels), and a solid all around carry case for range or storage. I was also able to snake the factory cable lock through to make things a bit more secure.
Product arrived as described and appropriately packaged. Case opens, closes, and snaps shut flawlessly. Being of a plastic material, it is not a vault. You need to understand this. There are holes molded into the case through which small padlocks can be attached. Suffice it to say, the case and any locks which one might secure it will only keep honest people from breaking it open. But it will keep a small child or a casual snoop from getting to the contents and provides an inexpensive and appropriate case for transporting a gun/guns. For instance, I have used it to carry my SW .357 4" AND my Ruger LCR .22 mag 2" simultaneously with room to spare. The foam "egg carton"-type of lining on the bottom and top of the case keeps the firearms in place so that they don't slide around inside. Good value for what I use it for.
Does exactly what I wanted. I have a S&W Victory 22 set up for competition. With the custom barrel and red dot sight I need a larger than standard case, but nothing too large. I have added this picture to show you, if you have a similar setup that this is a perfect fit! Case is not very heavy duty, but I'm sure it will last long enough for me until I go to a case for multiple handguns.
It's actually better than what it's advertised for. It's advertise for up to a 6 inch barrel. The one you see in this picture is a 7 1/4 inch barrel. The entire length of this firearm is 11 1/2 inches long and fits with room to spare below. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well it fit especially for the price I paid for it.
A very decent case for the money. It sells for more at all the shooting ranges which is a given. It fits a pistol and 2 mags comfortably. What I did was cut some of the tips of the inner foam to fit it and the mags properly. Now it's a lot easier to close and is still snug.
I haven't dropped tested this case yet, but I will and update this review.
**UPDATE*** June 10, 2017
I bought another and it fits nicely a full size and a CCW sized pistol with both mags. All I did was cut a little bit off the foam as pictured in the top cover to accommodate them easily. I'm very satisfied.
I've provided a couple of pictures with tape measure measurements so that you can get a better idea of what you are considering. Because the description included the cut out for the handle I was unable to use this case for my intended use. Yes, this is an inexpensive case, a cheap case. For transporting in your car to and from the range it will serve you better than just a soft fabric case.
Nice case does the job like other have mentioned if someone really wanted to get in this case they could but that is not what I purchased it for it’s great for transporting and keeping safe and free of the element when put away I recently went to a gun show saw this exact case the the show was selling it for more the holes for the locks are also excellent perfect fit for the gun lock that comes stock with S&W firearms I trimmed the bottom cushions down a little so my gun and mags could fit snug
first off this review is for both the rifle and the pistol unless stated separately and i didnt buy this to actually shoot with (although i did test it and it does fire) i bought it for a halloween costume and it serves that purpose great so here are the pros and cons
Pros: it shoots mostly accurate, comes with a bag of ammo, the flashlight works great, all moving parts work great also, and most everything clicked together just fine
Cons: the magazine for the rifle is hard to remove and insert and im afraid to continue doing so of fear of breaking the magazine and probably the biggest (and funniest) problem is on both guns the safty switch is backwards the guns will fire when the switch is flipped to safety and lock the trigger when the switch is flipped to any other mode
All in all 4/5 or 8/10
Rifle looks really cool (that's what the one star is for) but definitely not worth it. The pistol is really awful and doesn't really look cool either. Both guns are cheap plastic and will probably break in the near the forseable future. The pistol's trigger is very flimsy and will probably break in a couple of weeks. Great for decoration's, awful for playing.
DO NOT BUY!!!
my son saved up his money to buy this. he was very excited but the plastic mag broke just a week over the 30 day return window.
I will use the product to do a cosplay, so thats perfect for me. Very light.... the lantern is cute!
Without the airsoft BBs, they're great for my 2 boys. We've never shot them though.
Things I like :
The gun looks very nice and very realistic to a real S&W .19 Snub. Overall the gun feels great in hand, except for the loose grips, it has a nice heavy weight, great power 90+ shots, dual ammo, adjustable site, good for small pest control, and metal construction.
Things I don't like :
The loose hammer, loose grips, long trigger pull in DA, cheap plastic blister pack, no speed loader or extra cartridges included, very cheap plastic grip.
Now the problems... -_-
I shot more then 200 pellets and the accuracy is scary!
I inspected the gun, and noticed that the hammer and grips were loose and wobbly! When I pulled back the hammer into the cocking position the hammer was not loose, it was perfectly intact and not moving, the grips were slightly loose and wobbly. The grips make a squeaky/creaking noise when holding the gun in your hand. Later that day I cleaned the barrel of the gun, and I decided to fire the gun, I loaded the gun with the 6 included bb and pellet cartridges with Crosman copperhead bbs, I put a Crosman CO2 cartridge in the gun and went outside to fire the gun. I set up a target 7 yards away from me, I was shooting at a pop can.
I fired the gun and noticed each of my 6 shots were WAY OFF! The 6 shots were going too high, too low, left and right. It would rarely shoot straight! After I would say 18 shots the gun shot accurate but after those 4-5 "accurate" shots it would shoot in any direction! I adjusted my sites and shot again, the same thing happen it shot in all and any direction but rarely did it shoot straight! Again I adjusted the sights over and over again! Nothing changed. I decided to use different bbs made by Umarex the same thing happen, I checked and inspected the gun for any damage before I started shooting and loading the bbs, I also cleaned the barrel... I removed all factory grease too. This time I brought the target much closer to me. 6 feet away. I hit the pop can BUT it would scatter all over the pop can and not hit where I want it too in the middle! From 6 feet away I should be hitting bullseye dead center! I shot the gun in both single and double action and noticed no difference in the bullet direction when fired. I went threw 4-5 CO2 cartridges shooting bbs and pellets and never did I ever get the gun to shoot straight, where I want it!
Things that need to be fixed/improved! :
The blister pack! Why is it packaged in a cheap plastic garbage blister pack? Who at Crosman has their head up there arse? CHANGE the packaging from a blister pack to a regular normal box.
It should come with more shells too!
Where is the manual/instruction?? Why did my gun not come with one?
The hammer and the grips are loose and wobbly!!! How come you guys didn't fix this problem already!!! When you cock the hammer it does not become loose.
The grips need to be changed big time!!! I dislike the way we need to remove the grip in order to put the co2 inside! The grips are cheap and I am sure it will break one day!
Almost all air guns are made in Asia! So you don't expect good quality and packaging.
What others should know about :
Try out different kinds of pellets to see what your gun enjoys most...
Remember to always put oil on the Co2 cartridges.
Check if your gun has a loose hammer & grips.
And also check if your gun shoots straight from 6 feet away!
Overall the gun is good but! It will not shoot straight! The loose/wobbly hammer & grips need to be improved!!! And the gun needs to be packaged in a box with a manual.
Come on Crosman! Get your head together. It's been too long.
I did not buy this gun from Amazon, I am just letting people who want to buy this gun know what I experienced. I bought my gun from a Canadian store called Le Baron, and I now got my new replacement directly from a Crosman distributor called Gravel Agency.
Update 1 :
I have contacted Crosman about my weapon, and they said they will replace my weapon... Today while inspecting the gun and trying out the ejector rod to remove the bullet cartridges, the rod came off as if it was very loose... it came off on its own after I used it to remove the cartridges. It's almost as if this gun is ready to fall apart even though it's NEW!
I just wish this gun was built much better! The loose/wobbly hammer & creaking squeaky grips must be improved! the plastic package it came with SHOULD be replaced with a regular box! The way you have to remove the grips in order to put the co2 cartridge in the gun is a BIG problem! It is annoying, hard, it can and will break the grip, makes the grip loose, and makes squeaky noises when held in hand. The grip is made with cheap plastic and I am 100% certain it will break one day! Why couldn't Crosman make it so that only one side of the grip comes off so you can access the co2 cartridge?? It's a very dumb! idea to make the whole grip come off. Or you can just leave the grips alone and redesign the gun so that you can put the co2 underneath the grip. And my BIGGEST PROBLEM is that my gun does NOT shoot straight! From 6 feet away I can not get my gun to hit bullseye continually. From 7 yards it's even worse!
I'll give updates, and test the replacement that I will get from Crosman once it arrives.
Update 2 :
YouTube review : [...]
I received my new replacement from Gravel Agency (Crosman) about a month ago.
Opened the blister pack, and this time I found a instruction manual... I inspected the gun and noticed that the new replacement has the same problems I had with the first gun, it still has a wobbly/loose hammer and grips, so I guess all SNR357s have this issue*. It doesn't bother me that much anymore but it would be much better if Crosman fixed it. I cleaned and loaded the gun and went outside to shoot, and it was great. The accuracy was much much better I got 1-2 inch groupings from 7 yards. After 1 week I noticed that when ever I pull back the hammer to cock the firearm I have a 'sticky' trigger, the trigger on the weapon does not always push forward freely... when I let go of the trigger with my finger it stays pulled back and does not release on its own. ALSO, when I pull back the hammer to cock the firearm at the same time holding the hammer back and slowly releasing the trigger to decock the firearm I get the "sticky trigger" issue AND also after releasing the trigger and hammer slowly from decocking the firearm, while still holding the trigger, the hammer gets very loose... once I release the hammer and trigger then the hammer is not VERY loose anymore, it only happens whenever I decock the firearm I did not have this on the first day when I received the replacement gun new, another problem which is not that big of a deal but still is worrisome is that the firearms metal frame slightly moves just a tiny bit, when you hold the guns grip in your hand and move the gun up and down you will hear and see that the gun frame moves a tiny bit. I am still thinking if I should get another replacement from Crosman since I do have a 1 year warranty.
Overall the new replacement shoots better and this time the blister pack included a manual... BUT the gun still has a loose hammer and grips and my gun now has a new problem, it has a sticky trigger. Crosman should replace the blister pack with a normal box like all firearm manufacturers. Overall I give this gun a 3.5 rating. I have a YouTube video review if anybody would like to see more about this gun... Thanks
Wow, so realistic! Cool, heavy, and smooth. The safety is kinda firm, and needs some oil and breaking in. But so far I’m impressed. Will update after shooting pellets and bb’s tomorrow. But on overal real look and feel. Even the brass casings, it’s crazy. As for the plastic handle, it’s not loose on mine and the inside housing for the co2 cartridge is metal. So it’s only the outer handle that’s plastic. Definitely recommend!
It's a decent replica firearm that can shoot .177 pellets using a co2 cartridge.
This is a nice gift for someone that wants to practice their aim without the bang and good for teaching someone basic gun safety as this will do a lot less damage than a real firearm and it's got a good weight so it doesnt actually feel like a toy
Good feel to it. Good weight. Decent muzzle speed for a snub nose. My only wish is that thwy rifled the barrel. 20 feet from the target sitting in a vice in an enclosed building with no wind and the grouping was like 2 to3 inches in diameter with crossman pellets. That seems to be acceptable if it where 20 yards not 20 feet. I also noticed all hits on the targets have elongated holes. Meaning the pellets are definatly tumbling. The smooth boar works as expected for bbs. Just think rifling would be dynamite for pellets. That way target practice would be a test of the shooters abilities rather then the gun.
Biggest piece of junk. The shell got stuck and can’t get it out without destroying it. Amazon said to return and didn’t do it in time
If you're looking for a BB gun to play around with, this is really a good one.
Feels good in your hand, solid and heavy. Hammer pulls back smooth, chamber is smooth rotating.
I was very pleased with this.
This thing is solid, very well made, has some serious weight to it, full metal, full function, nice easy action! Definitely NOT a toy! Can't wait to shoot some pop cans with this baby...
Me gusta mucho ????????
received an open box with nothing in the box. only resurfaced item which does not work at all. Returning for refund
Gun looks pretty nice, very realistic. Not very accurate though. Plastic handles that hide co2 tank are very flimsy and move around a lot. It actually broke so had to use a rubber band around to keep it in place. Very annoying. Other than that I like it. Shoots pellets and bbs. Medium loudness. When co2 gets low accuracy goes down dramatically. Not too bad for the price.
recieved this gun very fast, it is everything it says it is. for the price how can i complain, i don't worry about trigger pull or pinpoint accuracy. it will make a great gun for my fishing bucket, i also have the C-41, C-11, Umarex XBG all of these are refurbished and look new and you get 60-80 hard shots. sure some might rattle a bit but are 100% better than what i had as a kid growing up. these are great 7-10 yds guns and would most likely kill birds and small critters but please leave nature alone, what's cool is shooting 3/8"sheetrock it produces a puff of dust on exiting.. go online and buy a lot of 500 powerlets i think i paid $140.00 which is more than i paid for all 4 guns also paid $42.00 for 15,000 bbs. my next move will be getting a PCP gun in 25cal, my friend has 1 and you hit can at 75yds, it a big jump in price but you only live once. remember to use a drop PELLGUN OIL everytime you change your co-2. well remember to respect mother nature and may the force be with you!!!
I nice pistol that has alot of power! Love it!
Its a nice pistol and it feels great. Its not metal its like very strong plastic. I haven't shot it yet but I've seen some videos on the gun and its very strong. The safety glasses are adjustable and it does come with 350 silver bb's and 3 CO2 12g cartridges. It also comes with paper practice sheets too shoot at. Over all this gun is quality and i would buy it. When i do shoot it ill come back and leave my perspective on it. The clip is internel and it holds up to 21 bb's. There is no blow back and theres no slide.
This is the power, use it be careful.
Safety issue with this pistol. Had it for some months then I put another co2 cartridge in and turned the tightening knob. The tank shot out and almost hit my $2,600 fridge. It hit my Level 5 one year old kitchen cabinets. I am contacting this gun company today about this issue. The cartridge is half exposed when installing and it decide to shoot out like a pinball in my kitchen. Very scary for two of us in the house at the time. What if it hit someone in the face?? Attached is a photo of my cabinet damage where is hit and tumbled and hit a second time then continued to bounce around in the kitchen.
This case is great for the price. I have had it a while now and done many range trips with it and I've never had it come open or have had any of the guns shift inside of it. It has dual layers of foam and I can pack 5 pistols plus mags and whatever else I want to take with me. You won't be disappointed with it.
I just got this case for a Kel-Tec Sub-2000 and I think it's going to work beautifully. It is a bit bulkier than I thought it would be, but I feel like my firearm is very well protected. There's actually probably room for another small pistol, or a few extra magazines if you really wanted them in there
One reason I purchased this item was b/c of the price, big mistake. I plan to fly to Texas and check-in my guns at the airport to including th 11-Lbs of ammo I'm allowed. This case, in the pic, appeared to be large enough to accomplish this. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised that it met all my expectations... EXCEPT ONE: It only has one small latch to secure a very-very small, travel-size, lock on to it. Most hard gun cases I've purchased/seen have a at least two sturdy latches, big enough to use a regular size lock. See attached pic. 2-stars only b/c of the small latch. Otherwise it's a nice sturdy box. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR GUNS, at least not to travel with.
PROs: Sturdy, large enough for two regular size guns plus magazine and deep enough to carry some boxes of ammo in the bottom underneath.
BIG CONs: ONLY ONE SMALL THIN LATCH to secure it with. See attached pic.
ADDENDUM 04-AUG-17: I figured out how to make this case serviceable for travel. I drilled two hole in the handle wide enough to use small but sturdy locks. Travel to Texas was completed successfully.
Amazing. Yes, it's slightly "flimsy," but I don't need a heavy, super thick, humidity-controlled case. I have my pelican cases for that purpose.
It's just the perfect size for me, with high-quality foam inside. For $20? Made in USA? HELL YES. It's absolutely perfect for my paintball gear; as I just need something to carry both of my paintball markers along with a barrel kit. It fits all that in a compact format.
I cannot be happier with this purchase.
Ok, let me give you the skinny about this pistol/equipment case. First, it will hold four full sized pistols with 4 magazines and a few boxes of ammo . I consider 1911A1's full size pistols. And four will fit. Second, it is not TSA approved for airline travel because it's locking ability does not meet their standard. Others may say it is, but it is not. Third, It is an excellent range pistol case or to carry sensitive electronic instruments. Forth, and most importantly, IT IS NOT CHILD PROOF. As, the case have two latches. There is a place on the right side of the carry handle of the case to put a lock. Any older child, teen, or one of their visiting friends has to do is to unlatch the two yellow latches, and pull up in the left side of the case; reach inside and get a firearm(see photo). I rated this product a four because it is an inexpensive range-electronic tool case. Well worth the money. As, the molding form allows users to form fit the inside for weapons or electronic equipment by pulling apart small square sections of the middle foam pad for a professional looking recess.
Just got this case for my Kel-Tec Sub 2000. Case is of great quality for the price. It’s not a Pelican case, but it’s also not $100. Firearm fit perfectly and there is plenty of room for extra magazines
This is a great case for the money! I've bought 4 of them. Two I use for my quadcopter and radio setup. The other two I use professionally as custom cases for test instrumentation. These are fantastic cases for whatever for in them! Very thick foam padding, with a foam insert that you can customize to fit whatever you want. Don't hesitate, this is a great buy!!
This is definitely not waterproof, and it's not as secure as a Seahorse or Pelican case would be. The foam isn't as high quality either. That being said, it's also under $20. I don't plan to use this for air travel or anything like that- it's mainly for transporting several handguns to the range and back. For that, it works great.
As I mentioned before, the foam isn't the highest quality- it's extremely soft and will most likely wear and fray quickly if you use the pick-and-pluck option. I sprayed the back side of the center foam insert with [[ASIN:B00CB3BROC Loctite 200 High Performance Spray Adhesive 13.5-Ounces (1713065)]] after plucking the pieces and then sprayed all sides of it with [[ASIN:B008J20R1S Performix 11221 Plasti Dip Gun Metal Multi-Purpose Rubber Coating Aerosol - 11 oz.]] to make it a bit more rugged (you can find all sorts of videos about that on youtube). I think it's going to work out fine.
Searched around for a case to hold my SW22 Victory along with other goodies and this case fit my needs perfectly.
The padding on the bottom, where the gun sits, is removable allowing me to store small tools, extra firing pins, springs, and such without taking up top space.
The case, for the price, is pretty well made and the closures are sturdy and have a very positive snap to them when opened and closed.
There are holes for padlocks making it TSA worthy.
For the price this was the perfect buy for me and I also recommended it.
I'm happy with this case so far. I haven't used it yet but is constructed well and should work just fine for transport to the range and back. I've attached a photo of the case label with the dimensions for the "18" model. Happy with the price and that it's made in the USA.
I noticed from the reviews and customer photos the different sizes or versions of this case have different numbers of locking points. Mine has two holes for locks under the handle, plus holes for padlocks on all 4 corners of the case. Just though I'd mention it if others need the locking spots for air travel, etc. It's a little confusing because the Amazon photo for all three sizes of case is exactly the same. I don't intended to use the case for air travel but this might be helpful to those that will use it for that purpose.
UPDATE! MUST READ:
7/2/18 - So last night our home got broken into at 1:00am. We were home unbknownced to the intruder. They open the back slider which set off the alarm, woke me up, and the dogs went to the door to check it out. I grabbed my Glock 21 with the defendTek light on the rail. Hit the switch and cleared the house. This light was there when I needed it. The Intruder ran when the alarm went off, thank goodness, I didnt want to shoot anyone but would have if I needed too. This light didn't fail me. I have tested it at the range and trusted my life to it. It didn't fail me. I know it's cheap but it works and it's very bright! Bright enough to light up the backyard after I made sure they weren't in the house.
Works great. Fit perfect on both my CZ P09 and Glock 21. Only thing is the battery life isn't great due to it being so bright but it is rechargable. Still holding up perfect after a few range sessions. Time will tell.
Nice light that mounts securely. This is well constructed for the price, All Aluminum construction.
I'm not using this as a everyday duty light. I think it will hold up well for casual use or having it on a nightstand gun.
It comes with a battery and charger so it's a good value. It looks good on the pistol and the switch is solid. I haven't shot
with it yet so I don't know how it will hold up. I'll follow up after I take it to the range. I'll try it with 9mm pistols.
I PAID FULL PRICE FOR THIS ITEM. NO BOGUS FREE ITEM REVIEW.
Great light with great programming for the strobe feature. The light is really bright but not too bright that it damages your own vision against white walls. The strobe feature is activated by timing the light off then back on within about 5 seconds, so you don't have to worry about cycling through the strobe to turn on the regular light the next time you need it. It's a little tight against the Glock frame but I imagine it will break in over time if you are constantly talking it on and off. The quick release functions well but it's difficult to attach and remove with the tight fit. The activation switch is in a good location to turn on with your right trigger finger, but you will need your left hand to power it off or switch to strobe. I would recommend this as a bed side flashlight but not for EDC due to it's size and weight. It's not oversized or overweight, but I believe there are better options (at a higher price range) if you're going to carry a flashlight every day.
I've been eye balling this product for months and recently saw a YouTube video review. I pulled the trigger and ordered it and at 33 bucks, I feel it was a steal. The light feels solid and the spring holder is tight. It was tricky to attach it to my Spingfield XD9 because the latch doesn't fall in place when the light is all the way in. You have to pull it forward a bit until you hear it click in place. It's light weight and doesn't add useless weight to the gun.
The battery is 650 mAh which should be good enough to hold charge until it's needed.
The front of the flashlight doesn't stick out as much as I thought it would, maybe a three quarters of inch. The light is really bright and clear and there isn't a wait period for it to get to it's max brightness.
Mounted on a Gen 4 Glock 22 perfectly. I like everything about this light especially the location of the on switch. You can turn this light on as fast as you can pick up the weapon because the switch lays directly under my index finger. Adds some weight but I would call the light very "light" in weight. Comes with everything, and the price is great.
The light is bright without being painfully bright indoors with white interior walls. The mounting at least on my pistol was perfect sits flush against the trigger guard, and is very snug. Seems to hold up well under recoil but I've only run a couple of mags with it installed so far. All in all I'm 100% satisfied with the product, shipped fast, and was well packaged.
Bought this for my S&W M&P M2.0 full size 9mm handgun. This fit perfectly and goes on very quick and easy. It works great. It is really bright and will be very helpful when things go bump in the night. The switch is in a good position ad easy to access. I haven't used it on the range yet while shooting.
I did try this on my Taurus PT 111 G2 9mm also. It does not fit this gun. I believe that this pistol is about the same size as a Glock 26.The compact size should fit here. I will get one.
Excellent light. I was a lil hesitant due to the price, but I decided to give it a go due to the other reviews. It is fantastic. Very bright, and the strobe feature will definitely disorientate a perp quickly. It fits perfectly on my Springfield XDM 40. Absolutely love it, and it's more than worth its price.
Easy to remove and install. Light is bright and seems robust. I test fitted it to a Glock 17 and a Sig SP2022. It fit on the very end of the SP2022 rail as most lights do. I modified the rail on the SP2022 so this and other lights fit tight against the trigger guard and lock into the second tooth of the rail for a very secure fit. This was not necessary just a personal preference. These are carry guns not barbeque guns. The light fit the Glock very well and was just right as most accessories seem to fit Glocks like they are designed for them. Because of the good fit on the Glock I will be ordering one for it as well.
I have not been able to shoot with it yet but initial impressions are great. Solid build quality and good brightness. Fits great on my CZ P07 and TP9 V2. Will update with pictures once I take it to the range......UPDATE: 8/15/17 I took light to the range and it was great. Put about 100 rnds through both the P07 and the TP9 V2 and had no issues. Didn't come loose....didn't turn off when it was on and did not turn on when it was off. Upgraded my review to 5 stars. Great light for me. Update 8/29/17....I now have a problem.....not with the light but with the battery and charger that came with it. After 1 charge either the battery won't take a charge or the charger no longer works rendering the light useless at the moment. I am changing to 3 stars because of this battery/charger issue. I do stand behind my assessment of the light which is excellent value and quality.
Bright, strobes and looks good. Come with charged battery and battery charger. Buying 2 more for my other pistols!
I have been looking around for a mounted flashlight to fit my Gen3 Glock 19 for a while. Could not be happier that I chose this one. Very bright (lights up a dark room well), easy operation (switch easily activated with trigger finger), solid metal build, and it even offers a strobe feature to blind or disorient anything you may be aiming at. Fits my Glock 19 perfectly (pictures attached), but I imagine it would fit other compacts equally as well. Easily disconnects from standard pistol mount with an easy release bar. Even if you consider a more expensive flashlight, and I don't know why you would, give this one a try first. For the price, I cannot imagine getting a better product.
Just what I wanted, this is better than I expected and at 300 lumens its really bright, it looks good on my springfield xd9.
Great tac light for my Taurus pt111 g2. Fits perfectly with only minimum extension past the barrel. Next test is how it does while shooting.
my need for a light was simple, a light that would mount on a short pic rail, be very bright, and be easy to use.
my weapon was not a pistol, it is a mossy 590 shockwave 12 ga
i questioned the dealer and others about the durability of the light in my application.
all of them said that it probably wouldn't be good idea.
i took a chance for the price, and am very pleased that i did, the light is compact, is very bright and fits my needs.
as far taking the shock of the 12ga, I figure that i only need it to work once or twice as my home defense weapon in order to have did it's job.
i don't plan on keeping it on the mossy if i go to the range in the daytime, not needed.
all in all, i have to say, it is great little light for the money
For what it is, for $30 the tac light is worth the money. A few gripes. 1) The on/off switch seems low quality. So far it has held up to testing though. 2) Not a fan of the white lettering on the sides. The light mounts quickly and securely to all my pistols. The beam itself was more impressive than I expected.

Will update if any issues arise.
So far so good. Flashlight fits my Springfield mod 2 45acp like a glove and it's so darn bright too!!! I'm gonna put it to the test this weekend when I go to the range. I will update.
UPDATE: Light shuts off and on when shooting. Very disappointing!!..
Really solid little light. I was surprised about how easy and bright it was. Strobe feature is sort of unnecessary but fits in well with hk vp9. It goes in about two slots. Not quite all the way to the finger guard but looks decent.
Only drawback is the battery cr2 is very tiny and isn't rechargeable. Even if you find a rechargeable battery, it doesn't fit into anything I have to charge them. It's too short.
Happy with the on and off button. Not sure how it'll work in a holster though, since I haven't tried it yet.
For the price? Why not order 2 or 3 and have it.
Can put this on ar15 but don't have the rear access for remote button since the battery loads in the rear.
Received 10/06/15. Photos of light attached on Ruger SR9.
Was packaged nice and snug in a little box with foam.
The light is very bright and flash function is cool.
The switch design is not perfect but will do the job.
Great value. Satisfied spending $30 and not $70 for a gun light.
Fits well on a Gen-3 Glock 19. Functional and easy to activate weapon light for a cheap cost. The light itself is very bright! The only issue I have with it is that the locking plate fits the detent a little too far forward for my liking. You can slide the light all the way back snugly to the trigger guard, but it doesn't lock in place in that position. Tightening down the side plates holds it by friction only, in that position. Locked in the detent position, there is a small gap between the back of the light and the front of the trigger guard. The spring-loaded locking plate is a nice feature to mount and remove the light without tools.
I am intending to use this flashlight for classes on low light/no light defensive shooting ONLY. That being said, let's talk about the good, the bad and the ugly about this little guy.
1. It is inexpensive.
2. It is easy to install. Be careful NOT to overtight the Allen screws. Go slow and gentle. It comes with an Allen wrench
3. It is easy to remove. It has a lever-type in the front that allows you to remove the flashlight fast, very fast.
4. It is 500 lumens, which is a decent amount of light for most tactical/self-defense applications.
5. It is lightweight and unobstructed.
6. It comes with a battery
1. It does NOT have ambidextrous controls. If you are a leftie (I am a leftie) you have to turn on the light with the thumb of your support hand. No the best thing to do under stress.
2. It does not have momentarily on and off switch. it has only on and off (strobe is really not that important, even though this last statement is subjective)
3. The finish is not the same quality as of the big brands, Streamlight, Surefire, but for 30 bucks it is darn good.
I would dare to say this flashlight is disposable in the sense that once the battery is empty or if you damage the light, you better get a new one.
In my opinion, if you want a mounted light weapon to learn or teach how to properly use it in low light/no light conditions, this is an excellent alternative.
I read several reviews pointing that if you laid the firearm with the weight of the firearm on top of on switch, the light turns on. I tried and I found that if you lay the gun very gentle and slowly this does not happen. I know, I know, we are gun guys and this kind of gentle treatment of a tool is not practical, but for 30 bucks what do you expect? If you want something heavy duty, extremely durable, high quality, and worry-free, well, spend the big bucks and buy a light in the high-end spectrum.
This mounted light weapon is NOT for serious applications. This flashlight should be used for training/practice in low or no light tactical situations or as a backup, last resort flashlight.
For the price this is a ton of fun. Yes , it's not the easiest thing to load and cock but once you get the hang of it youll forget all about kt because you are so happy with hitting tight groups. Or slaughtering rats out of your neighbors fruit trees. With its accuracy I am getting one shot kills almost every time at Relatively close range. On targets it shoots exactly where I point it. Love this thing for.the price. I did take off the stupid for sight as it's a pos and pretty much worthless. Factory sights only needed 2 clicks doen and been dead on ever since. I did have to send one of these back as it failed after the 4th shot but the replacement came the next day and has been flawless through about 400 rounds. I cleaned it 2 timed with a brass brush down the barrel just fyi. Feels like a real gun in the hands and shoots great. Couldn't be happier. Dropped it 2 times also and no issues. It's made from cheapo plastic but feels fine. A little work with grip tape or soemthsoemthijng could help but I haven't tried any "upgrades" . Id buy again in a second.
Although the gun is about what you would expect for $30, I was very disappointed in the performance of a company with whom I had been acquainted even in my youth. After shooting the a few loadings I noticed something that didn't look right on the seal between the gas chamber and the breach of the barrel. Closer inspection revealed that there was a gap of approximately .030" in the O ring seal. See attached picture. I couldn't imagine that being correct so I attempted to contact Beeman to ascertain that O ring should be continuous. Over a period of a week I called 3 times asking to speak to someone in technical or customer support. On 2 of the calls I waited approximately 10 minutes and received no answer. On one of the calls I got someone's voice mail and left my name and number as requested but never received a return call. I then went to their website and left an email requesting that they contact me regarding the issue. In 2 weeks no return phone call or reply to my email.
It is not worth my trouble to return it for a $30 item and I had discarded the packaging after one shot to determine that it would actually shoot. If you want a mediocre $30 air pistol then OK, but you can expect absolutely NO support or even response from Beeman. Shame on them.
Completely rebuilt the trigger mechanism (added washers, bent springs...) filed sear-plate and all burrs...
DON'T over grease the piston - grease will get sucked into chamber and you'll regret it!
Have had this gun for more than 1 year…
It feels like holding a real 45 caliber gun and is fun to shoot.
It’s accurate with plenty of power.
The mechanics are easy to work with.
(Once the first rebuilding is done (re-working the springs and sear-plate burrs)) See Red arrow in photo for spring re-positioning.
Have had to replace the O-rings more than a dozen times - it leaks more than any air gun/rifle I’ve owned… a REAL PAIN !
But, the choice is between: that Pain, Versus the waste/cost of using CO2. I’ll stick with the pain of rebuilding it…
When it doesn’t leak, it takes a good bit of arm/muscle to pump so, I cooked up a ’Pumping Aid’ to easily grab (it catches on the rear sight and does not remain on the gun). It’s posted at ThingVerse (search for "Pump aid for Beeman p17"
print your’s at a local 3D Print Hub (goggle it) or, order one from the site where it’s posted…
This has been a very nice gun but there a few qualifiers and in that is the reason I docked it a star. The sight is useless in low light, it is blinding and in the way, I took it off as quickly as I put it on. The 11mm grooved top is sharp, it's great that it has one but for any practical use; you are going to have to dull it to a safe level. I used a hardened steel screwdriver and shaved some of the edge away, it took me a few minutes and it was usable. There's two problems dealt with. Next I found that at times I would cock it and it would refuse to fire, then repeat the process and it would, maybe. I found a too long video on YouTube where a person with the same problem found the answer. The spring inside the right handgrip shifts too far back and doesn't set the trigger when cocking. Another 10 minute fix later and it works, it works very, very well as a matter of fact. The fiber optic sights are great making a very easy sight picture, I added an old red dot sight I had to further define a point of aim but on this one; the open sights are good enough. The trigger is one of the best triggers I have ever used. I have owned and shot hundreds of guns and this trigger should cost more than the gun, it is in a class almost by itself, good enough to regard as target grade. The "fixed" gun is why I decided to put the additional optic on and it also helps with the considerable effort needed to cock the gun. Nearly the whole gun is metal, the only plastic I see are the sights which by the way are adjustable. This is physically the same as the Beeman P3, a gun which costs $200 more, it has a different country of manufacture and beyond that there's little difference. I don't even know for sure if the problems I mentioned are not present in the P3, hopefully for 7 times the cost they are not, however cleaning up the problems with this is simple and the gun itself is a very good normal person target grade pistol. Target in the photo was 5 shots at 10 yards.
i dont know what the problem is, but this air-pistol will not fire, straight out of the box it seemed fine,first pump i shattered the red dot,almost cut my hand,and when i loaded it and fired all i heard was a hiss. and the pellet doesn't even move..im assuming its the same o ring issue the last guy had...but i paid 20$ more than him.dont buy this its a waste of time/money..
