I think that one of the lads at the Club has bought one, made under licence by Walther. it seems to do OK with CCI Mini Mags. Not my cup of tea I'm afraid, a bit of a Dinky car but not bad for what it is I expect. :D

If you must have one, buy the only licensed copy of the Colt, i.e. the Walther:

Personally I'd buy a version of the Ruger 10/22, an accurate rifle:

You have the decision on what type of sight and mount you want that suits the rifle. Choice of four iron, red dot, holographic or optical. If you go for a red dot don't get one of the cheapo's used by the Air Soft crew. If you go for a red dot make sure that the dot is near enough circular at low level settings, some are next to useless for precision. I've no experience of Walther's own brand sights, think I tried a holo once on an MP5 and it was ok.
If you fancy an optical scope, check out the type of low power compact scopes fitted to the AR15, I use a little 3 x 20 on mine. The Simmons Whitetail Classic 1.5-5x20 is also very good, if you can find one, the Pro Diamond shotgun version just has a different reticle.
As mentioned, CCI Mini Mags run pretty cleanly, keep the breach clean with a child's toothbrush. A tip here, an old battery powered sem rotary action electric toothbrush is useful for cleaning bolt and chamber face. Use Breakfree CLP very sparingly to lubricate the moving parts. ;)
Good luck.
