Pistol as a homemade silencer on it now, with the words 'Cal 9' painted on it (Para didn't turn out) in small white letters.
Pictures soon- still waiting to order the damn adaptors.

... woah.

The adaptors arrived (kudos to Madmax, Stefan, and ASC Armoury), and I got to fire them.

... woah.

Loud, high-powered, full auto's really, really fun. There's some recoil, and the gun seems quite accurate.
Haven't done any more then random plinking yet, I'll put some .22 targets up later.
The HiCapa 3.8 is nice, but right now, I'm rooting for the M190.

Today BTAP and I were testing his two new pistols, and I offered to do a pain test. So I got proper eye and face protection and stood approximately 8-10m away from BTAP. First he used the Hi-Capa (with Excel .25s, all I had at the time, and Coleman's Propane), and it hurt like a bitch, although the effects weren't immediate. Then we tried the M190, from a bit furthur, and once hit, pain was fucking INSTANT. There was lots of shouting and swearing, and laughing from BTAP. The guns left two big red welts, even through a shirt.
Awesome pistols BTAP!

OK, I may as well follow up on this.

Anyways, this gun has exceeded all expectations.

It puts hole after hole through the same target- wherever I put it. The gun's accurate as hell, the hop-up is very stable, and the gas consumption is amazing.

The gun spits out about 7 RPS on full auto, perhaps more. Not the highest, but certainly fairly high- want more then that, get a Glock 18C. I don't see why you'd need much more then you have on this- however, on automatic, it's quite innacurate thanks to the recoil. Nomatter- considering it's on fully automatic, at that point you're not going for accuracy anyways.

All in all, it's an amazing gun. Full metal, built like a tank (this is no KJW pot metal, this is certainly something very strong), accurate, and powerful- it's certainly not the prettiest thing around, but if you don't like it, go get a Western Arms. This gun is not for you.
For the rest of us that prefer performances over function, this is certainly a gun for you. It's accurate and it packs a punch- what more can you ask? Whenever I need a gun to shoot someone with, the Hi-Capa and the Cougar (next on my list) can wait- the M190 is first out of the holster. In fact, I may buy another for my left hand- the fact that you can change mag-releases is another added plus.

Questions or concerns will be answered- I've taken the gun down, painted it flat black, sanded the barrel, and put it back together. Now it looks really quite professional.

When taking the gun apart to see the trigger spring, though, I was an idiot and let the hammer parts fly everywhere. That's not recommended- I managed to put it back together without much difficulty.

More pictures coming soon- next gun review will be a Western Arms Beretta Cougar M8045 Inox.

Fixed hop up. Works very well, too.
Redwolf made a mistake.

HFC works great with .20s. It's calibrated for that.
.25s work too, I've been using primarily them.

I've been using purely Propane- it works out of the box. I'm going to assume around 310 to 320 FPS, while doing some homechronos and comparing to other guns, it certainly seems that way.

Welcome, anytime.
Any other questions will be answered, it's a fairly simple yet amazingly efficient gun. The hammer mechanism, some people seem to have problems putting it back together (if they happen to somehow let the hammer mechanism fall apart). If anyone happens to have done this with an HFC Beretta, or even a KJ or a Marui, that they can't put back together, I'd be glad to help. Managed to do mine with about 20 minutes of trial-and-error.

Which retailer did you buy it from? How much did it cost?

(Awesome job with the paint btw)

Thanks, man.
I bought it from AI Models (Great guy, great prices and fast shipping), for just shy of 200 dollars. Considering the KJW counterpart is about 300 and up, I'd say it's a pretty good deal.
Sam0182 (www.bcairsoftsupply.com) is importing some through AIModels as well, and will be reselling them for pretty good prices. I've already spoken to him, it should be the same model I have.
