    I noticed those the other day actually on eBay.

    So he does.

    Tbf though he does correct himself by saying so in the text boxes that pop up on screen whilst watching the video.

    The only thing I don't like about these guns is that the cartridge ejection port on the slide is not cut out. Even an old Marui BB gun P226 that I used to own had that feature.

    Have you looked at the Umarex Legends series?

    They are making some fantastic all metal replica airguns. The Luger P08 is particularly good with working blowback toggle action.

    Currently got an Umarex Hammerli S26 which is of course a Sig copy but isn't blowback. Absolutely adorable pistol for shooting and looks the bizz nickel plated. I also have an Umarex Beretta FS92 which, although a lot heavier and more substantial, is more difficult to use. Whatever you decide, I wouldn't entertain anything unless it has a rifled barrel. Old skool here I'm afraid.

    You can get copper coated lead bb's which wont bounce off for what u have already, which should be ok for your club? ive heard the cheap sig 226 shoots to one side or the other unless your lucky, no adjustable rear sight! Unless u are target shooting i would stick to what u have, i have a cz p-09 .177 pellet, and colt bb umarex blo backs - and there is nothing in it at 8 yards tbh, just a bit of fun, if you want accurate a single shot pcp is the best way, but u wont get that fast firing pleasure! i have just bought a cp88 which is probably a inbetweener of say a bb gun and a low end pcp. If you are accuracy hungry, then a steyr or the like would prob suit u better.
