    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Good quality. Comes with a nice set of accessoires. It is straightforward tool to use. Donward version is suitable for european locks (teeth go down when entering the key). With the help of the tension you can vary the force with which the pins are struck.

    Cons:

    The tension wheel shows some difficulties to operate. Not adviced to use this feature a lot. One screw keeps on going out (after a 30 blows without retightening). No realy problems with the major workings.

    OtherThoughts:

    Be adviced: please know that a pickgun is not some sort of magical tool. It too requires some practise to master. It will not open all locks nor will it do this in just one go most of the times. Sometimes picking the lock is faster. Also be aware that with a pick gun the pins are damaged with time and some cheaper locks are known to be actually damaged prevting them from working properly.

    Bottomline:

    It is definitly as good as any other pickgun (even well known brands) out there. If you are definite you want to buy one I would highly recommend this one. Be sure to use feather light tension on the wrench and low tension on the gun will most of the time do the trick, it is all about the subtlety.
