This is a fantastic air pistol, with zero recoil, you will not believe the feel of this gun, it has a good weight and seems to be styled half after a desert eagle and the butt half from a P99 pistol which also makes it ultra comfortable! The Beeman 2004E is the first quality air pistol to join the ranks of the now elite polymer firearm pistols now being produced in Europe and America. That is, it is a marriage of the finest ordinance steel critical parts wrapped in super strong, fiber-reinforced, space age polymers like the latest Walther firearm pistols.
The very reasonable price of this gun represents a manufacturing shift to a more efficient, better method of construction, rather than any reduction of quality. This pistol is simply in a much higher league than the lower grade plastic and/or pot metal air pistols, even ones of higher price that depend on gadgetry features, such as inaccurate rapid fire, for their sales appeal. Not only does the 2004E embrace a quantum leap in material technology, but it benefits from functional evolution of valves and other key internal features. It looks and feels like solid German quality!
Pulling back what appears to be the hammer allows the top frame to be swung up as a charging lever. Just swing it forward, insert the pellet, and then swing it back to compress the air charge-an easy, natural action. An automatic safety prevents "beartrap" closing or accidental discharge. This top frame contains the beautifully rifled steel barrel and both the front and rear sights, all as a single rigid unit. The sights cannot get out of alignment with each other during cocking.
As a single stroke pneumatic, the 2004E has absolutely no recoil or spring jump. A functional, built-in muzzle brake prevents any tendency for muzzle flip. Couple this steadiness with its wonderfully crisp trigger and you have a pistol which just naturally shoots accurately offhand - not just from special testing clamps. Practice, very quietly and inexpensively, with the 2004E until you can place all your shots well and you will be able to shoot even more accurately with a good firearm pistol. The 2004E is a practical pistol, but it is just a joy to shoot! The power rating for this weapon is 410 ft per second.
Don`t forget to order .22 pellets in the accessories section. This pistol is not designed for pointed pellets
