All in all it is a good training pistol. The one thing that I dont like is the cylinder does not lock. When it is fired it will rotate so the blanks are not shot in order. Sometime the trigger needs to be pulled several times to have a live blank in position.
The blank pistol functioned properly up until a couple of months ago. The cylinder now opens up by itself quite easily and the blanks fall out, usually without one realizing it. The locking mechanism is ineffective. If that could be improved, the rest works fine and at a great price.

Champ 209 Blank Pistol
it is about what I expected for the price. the action with the trigger is really stiff. So I cock it before I pull the trigger. Some times you have to hit the primer twice for it to fire.
But as I use this in Field trials in all kinds of weather its not a real problem because of the price
Great Starter Pistol
Ive been using this starter pistol for a few months and have had no issues. It works great and is well constructed. The action is a little stiff when you first get it, but improves with use. The simple design makes it easy to clean, which I would highly recommend doing often if your using black powder blank rounds.

LCS Blank Pistol
This blank pistol is a good economical choice for light or limited training/use. With extensive use the firing pin recoil will indent/crater the hammer face, eventually causing the pistol to misfire. The solution is to file down the crater to reduce its depth and restore the firing ability. Overall I think it is a good choice, even with this weakness. I have fired over 500 shots with my pistol and have restored the hammer problem noted above. It is again working as designed.

LCS Champ Blank Pistol Review
The pistol fires nearly every time when the hammer is pulled back for a single shot. It tends to not fire consistently when the trigger is pulled for a second shot.

LCS Blank Pistol
High quality construction and very dependable. Only issue is that the user must use shorter blanks, such as acorns. While they are slightly more expensive than construction blanks, the report is strong. The pistol is very easy to load/unload and doesnt mash the shell. A good buy at a great price.

32 Starter Pistol
Have used this pistol for many years as starter for track and field meets. Lion Country has always shipped quickly and back their products. Very functional and loud using 32 Winchester blanks. I have been told its one of the loudest starter guns. You must keep it clean and oiled or it will stick. Make sure you clean out the cylinder every time you use it. Use gun oil only.
