    Glock 17 Dual Ammo dos & donts

    I've just bought a dual ammo and waiting on delivery.

    Any dos or donts I should be aware of before I use it? It's my first air pistol of any form since a cheapo spring BB when I was about 12, always had rifles since then.

    Thanks

    Do: make sure you seat the pellets properly in the magazine
    Don't: point it at your face

    Expect a very heavy trigger. Mine was over 9lbs pull weight and only let off about 2mm from the final stop point. Not the most accurate pistol I've ever had, but felt comfortable in the hand.

    The trigger on mine was incredibly heavy when new but this does loosen up after a few CO2 cartridges. It's now an accurate little plinker.

    Currently looking for Baikal Makarov pistols with the following prefixes to the serial number: 98, T01, T08, T09, T21, T22
    Prefer boxed or cased but will consider loose examples too.

    Thanks Ade, I've been using the seating section on the mag insert/bulb holder. Have had a few issues with Suoermags jamming in CP88 mags so have bought H+N Econs instead

    Yes it's definitely a heavy trigger! I agree about how it feels in the hand, seems more of a natural point than the CP88. Still getting used to it before I judge accuracy as its mostly down to me at the moment

    It's a mad minute.

    Your adrenaline has gone through the roof.

    Your side-arm has become your last line of defence.

    You deploy it and use it as quickly as you can. I put it to you that accuracy may not be your priority at that moment and that a match-quality light trigger may not be your friend. CO2 pistols are used as serious training aids.

    Very true, but they can be accurate in the right hands, sadly not mine!

    Too many guns, or not enough time?
