Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Action Army AAP-01 GBB Airsoft Pistol is fairly light, it is a single action only trigger meaning you will need to pull the bolt back to engage the trigger and load an Airsoft BB into the breach. I noticed there is about a 1/4 inch of take-up with a firm breakpoint and easy trigger release. You will also notice there is a trigger safety on the trigger but it does not get in the way at all.
Accuracy: I have not had the chance to really test out this Airsoft Pistol but will be doing so next week when I make my Field Test Shooting Video for the Action Army AAP-01 GBB Airsoft Pistol. I did load up a magazine with propane and do a mag dump in full auto and managed to get though it all but I did pretty much use up all the Gas shooting in full auto. I am sure when in semi auto the gas will go a lot further. I look forward to seeing how it performs in the Filed test in term of accuracy and velocity.
Build Quality: The Action Army AAP-01 GBB Airsoft Pistol has a good overall build quality and fit and finish. There is a lot of plastic on the outside but good use of metal internally in the bolt, barrel and magazine giving it decent weight but not making it too heavy.
Realism: The Action Army AAP-01 GBB Airsoft Pistol is not an actual Replica specifically of any one particular real steel gun in production, that said it does resemble the Ruger series of 22LR pistols in design and how the bolt functions. You will finds lots of working parts that function as you would expect to them if this was a powder burner. Like the bolt, slide catch, magazine release, safety, trigger safety and full size drop put metal magazine. You can even field strip this gun easily.
What I really like about the Action Army AAP-01 GBB Airsoft Pistol is that it is rather unique looking, it looks nothing like a Glock, or 1911, or a Beretta or Sig so if you want something that stands out from the crowd then this may be it. I also like the ability to shoot in semi auto or full auto with the click of a switch and since it uses standard G-series magazines you should be able to easily find higher capacity extended mags that hold more gas and more Airsoft BB’s which you will for sure need if you plan to be shooting this one in full auto often.
