Just saw this today and not really impressed by the spec sheet. Actually, I'm more of disappointed. Not by the looks, as most folks are turned off by, but by design decisions Socom Gear made. One is it's CO2. Actually that's a good thing because CO2 is a better propellant compared to green gas/propane, but I'd like to have the versatility of choosing what gas you put in it through interchangeable mags. The way they made the gun is that the gas tank is integrated in the grip. You load the 12g powerlet directly into the grip which would mean a green gas version would require a complete redesign of the gun which might mean that never happening. Secondly, with the gas in the grip, the functional magazine holding the bbs is a fugly stick type reminiscent of old tech springers and NBBs. And they only hold 15 rounds, only half of the real thing which sucks balls given that high capacity was the biggest selling point of the gun (and why it's called PMR 30). While sporting blow-back function, the slide only moves as if it were shooting .22LR, not .22 magnum which the real thing uses. The .22 magnum has a long case and having the slide blow-back as much as the real thing could have been plenty of fun like the TM Desert Eagle and FN 5-7. Lastly, it shoots 460fps stock. I know some folks (myself included) like to make sniper pistols needing plenty of power to get good range, but as this is being marketed as a backup or secondary weapon, all that power can be very prohibitive. I'm sure nobody wants to get hit by that much power up close where most handguns are deployed. While the fps issue can probably easily be sorted out by modifying/changing the hammer spring, there's not much to do about the detracting features. The only good thing I see from it is the price which is at $105.
