The steel storm is impressive, even though it's not metal. It functions well. I bought a combination green daytime laser / flashlight for the top. There is no need for a scope when it's made to be fired from the waist like John Wayne.
In My Top 3 Favorite BB Machine Pistols With remote tank setup. You really can make it rain steel with tthe UMAREX Steel Storm.
Shoots well with the 2x12g Co2 setup. This is a loud shooter. I made a Baffle out of an empty 12gram Co2 cut the ends off drill some holes.
Really works well to quiet this beast down, Over the Inner Baffle is an inexpensive PVC extention,
Super Quiet with double wall holes drilled thru inner tube.
I added an UTG Ergo ForeGrip, UTG Tactical Laser, UTG 30mm Green/Red Dot Sight, and Remote Tank Adapter.
I love this gun. It has a lot of weaver rails, and is very easy to add a few accessories to make it look just like the new H&K MP7... the only thing missing is the telescopic buttstock.... But with a foregrip, a homemade PVC pipe barrel extension, and a few other accessories like a red dot scope and a tac light, it looks just like a HK MP7. Please check out this pic of mine after adding the mentioned accessories onto the weaver rails and making a mock supressor/barrel extension for it; It looks great in this picture at the link here you can see my personalized one, it was very easy to make it look like....

It is easy to convert to full auto of you prefer it over the six round burst. There are many videos on YouTube that show you how to make the full auto conversion on this model, but I prefer to keep it with only the two options of single shot or six round burst. because I am afraid if I change the six round burst to full auto, it will eat up more CO2 cartridges than it already does. The hopper holds 300 bbs and the chamber holds 30 at a time, but you will be changing out the spent CO2 cartridges by the time you shoot up those 300 bbs in six round burst mode.
Be prepared to buy CO2 cartridges by the crate load of you plan to do a lot of shooting. But that says nothing about the gun, it is just the nature of the beast, all CO2 guns.. This one takes them two at a time.
It is VERY accurate, and I was astonished how well it shoots so accurately even in six round burst mode, I was expecting them to spit out all random like, but no, they are almost as accurate as single shot mode, which can hit the bullseye every time at 15 yards with a decent red dot scope or laser sight. Both of which I have added onto the many weaver rails that come stock on the gun. It is by far the best quality and looks for the price.. I would think it should cost twice what it does.
You will be very pleased with the accuracy and also the looks, once you get it accessorized with a few things to clamp onto all those weaver rails, I have got mine looking like a clone of the new HK MP7 and it looks awesome.
This item is thee BEST bb pistol I've ever owned.
So far.. Great accuracy at 75 feet.! Bad ass.
Update: I've had this 2 weeks and shot over 2000 rounds thru it without so much as a hiccup. So far it's been very reliable and a great platform for mods.
Pierce the co2 cartridges fully and run pellgunoil or silicone oil thru it liberally and it will not disappoint. So far my mods are foregrip w/bipod, reflex sight, removable 4-position stock, and I found an mp7 holster that's pretty dope. All these were bought on Amazon except for the stock which was an eBay takeoff from a broken airsoft mp7.
6 round bursts are no joke. The rate of fire is very high for those 6 quick shots. This thing is actually really loud, but apparently pvc pipe silencers are very easy to make and highly effective... So I've heard.
Haven’t had any problems yet, and the sight makes it pretty accurate
I bought 2 of these and not of them broke the spring that loads the BBS is a bad dezine
