a little different than my Walther P22... there was actually recoil. Damn I suck. The pistol is very accurate, even with WWB. I was able to hit two bullseyes in a row from about 15 feet, but my accuracy with other shots left much to be desired. It had more of a kick than I had imagined, and I need to practice a lot more. Going through a box of 100 rounds, not a single misfire. My Walther misfired all the time.
