Comments: The M84 is an all-metal replica of the Beretta Cheetah. It is made in Taiwan by Wingun for Cybergun and distributed in the USA by Palco Sports (a large distributor of airsoft products) under their Firepower label . This pistol is similar to the Anics A-101 and A-111 in that it is made entirely of metal, has a removable BB magazine, has a heavy trigger pull, and uses a moving barrel hammer mechanism. The finish and attention to detail are better on the M84 than on either of the Russian pistols. The M84 is a sturdy action plinker with good power and accuracy but is hindered somewhat by a heavy trigger and non-adjustable sights.

Performance: Measurements were made on 2/01/07 at a temperature of 53 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Daisy Avanti BBs (5.5 gr). The highest velocity measured was 446 fps, the lowest was 436 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 442 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 0.69".

Right Profile:
Front View: The slide is fixed in place and the slide lock lever and hammer are props. The magazine release button is just behind the trigger on the left side.
Right Side Markings: The safety is shown just above the trigger on the right side. On this particular specimen, the safety is difficult to engage.
Left Side Markings:
Loading BBs: The magazine is made from metal and holds 20 steel BBs. The BBs load in a staggered fashion, similar to the "double-stack" magazines of airsoft pistols.

Loading CO2: The grip cover is a one-piece unit that slides back on forth to reveal the CO2 cylinder and piercing mechanism.
