    Accuracy is decent, gets pretty wandery if you're trying to run it too hot. (Rabbits wait for no man)

    Noisy little bastard, even with a can on. Noise comes from the action rather than the muzzle.

    Trigger is better than most factory setups. If it gets a little dirty, it won't always cock right if you're a bit slow releasing the trigger again after firing. Usually just a conscious correction of technique is all that's needed for a few shots, then you're good with muscle memory.

    Mags are horrible little things to load, have to press and twist the round in with a bit of a weird motion. (9 shot mags)


    Those less than glowing points out of the way, it shoots reliably, I don't recall it being prone to jamming, extremely effective for cleaning up a nice cluster of bunnies and feels decent to the hand/shoulder.

    I own an A17 and like it, but they are finicky, you have to push the mag in properly, load it making certain the rounds are pushed all the way to the back and keep them clean. I put up with this because it is stupid accurate and cycles reliably.
