Pros:
The low cost of this wii gun replacement makes it an excellent alternative to anyone looking for either a cheaper or a different style of gun casing than what Nintendo offers
Cons:
I have 2, on both they were VERY hard to insert the remote the first few times. So bad in fact, I had to disassemble one to see how the remote would be able to be insterted. Also, others have mentioned the lack of a lock to hold the remote in the unit
Other:
I solved the problem of the remote slipping out by using a velcro cable tie at the end of the gun. Gave it a nice color highlight to.
Also, because of the nunchuck pass-throught, some games may think that the nunchuck is plugged in when it's not, this can be annoying, even hamper game-play.
Bottomline:
Overall, it's good. Good enough to buy 2, or however many poeple you may have playing a shooting game. They may not get used much, but it's better to have one then not.
