I suspect I'm the shooter you're speaking about as I've shot an MG1e at the last 2 CAGPs.

I used to shoot a Morini C162e and before that a Hammerli 480k and FWB 65.

Let me start of by saying I sold my Morini after owning the MG1e for several months. I find the trigger and rear sights to be superior to the Morini and any air pistol Iíve shot. The build quality is superb, and on par with most manufactures.

The balance of the pistol is quite forward in part because of the electronics are forward of the trigger guard.

I have yet to produce the same scores and results as I did with the Morini, but that is simply because I do not shoot a lot anymore. However, I still manage to produce my average number of 10s with the MG1e as I used to shoot with the Morini when trainning. This has led me to believe that the MG1e is a forgiving pistol Ė sort of like how people describe the Toz 35.

I donít know many people who have the MG1e in Canada but I know there are two right now. The second one was purchased after they tried mine. Most people after trying the trigger simply smile and have this impressed look on their face. Styer and Morini dominate the Canadian market, but the MG1e should be considered. The mechanical trigger is very good as well Ė there are several mechanical MG1s in Canada.

Manufacture support has been fantastic in my experience. Simply email the company if you need anything.

I hope this helps, and if you would like any additional information please do not hesitate to ask me. email is freepistolshooter at rogers d.t com
