ASG Ruger MK II Dual Tone CO2 6mm Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Airsoft CO2 pistol.
Manufacturer: ASG.
Model: Ruger MK II.
Materials: Metal and plastic.
Weight: 1.8 pounds (790 Grams).
Barrel: Metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2.
Action: Semi auto double action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 15 round full size drop out metal magazine.
FPS: 417.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ASG MK II is double action only which will make it a bit on the heavy and longer side when compared to a real steel Ruger MK II, it is smooth however and does have a nice satisfying click that sounds like a firing pin being release. The unfortunate part is that the real steel version is a single action only trigger and one that is super short and light so the contrast between the Airsoft and 22LR version may make this gun not practical is an optional training tool if you win the 22LR version also.
Accuracy: This part of the review is yet to be determined as I have not done my Field Test or Shooting tests for this pistol. I will put a link in here when I have done my official Field Shooting Test. For now all I can go on is some feedback from others that have claimed very high fps and excellent accuracy, I am looking forward to finding out for myself! You can watch my Ruger MK I Gas version Field Test Shooting Review to get an idea on how the ASG Ruger MK II version might perform.

Build Quality: ASG as usually distributes quality guns, the fit and finish on the ASG Ruger MK II Dual Tone CO2 6mm Airsoft Pistol is very good and there is use of metal where it needs to be like with the internal mechanical parts, the trigger, the safety, the rear fully adjustable sight and the full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and the Airsoft BB's. Thee MK II version has a metal upper which adds additional weight over the MK 1's plastic upper.

Realism: The ASG MK II is based on real steel Ruger MK II with the fluted barrel in a two-tone finish and looks very close to a real Ruger MK II. There is no blowback operation or bolt operation so that means that only a double action trigger is possible, this is a bit unfortunate since the real Ruger Mark II has an absolutely smooth and light single action trigger. On the positive side you can field strip the ASG Ruger MK II Dual Tone CO2 6mm Airsoft Pistol just like the real version.
Available in: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • If you own a real Ruger 22LR it would be nice to have for some backyard or basement shooting.
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage.
  • Adjustable Hop-up for Elevation.
  • Full size all metal drop out magazine that holds the CO2 and Airsoft BB's.
  • Metal upper barrel, Metal trigger, metal safety and many metal internals.
  • Very satisfying trigger sound, sounds like a real firing pin :)
  • Field Strips just like the real steel Ruger MK Series.

Cons:

  • Plastic sights front and back, plastic trigger.
  • No blowback (Would have allowed for a true single action trigger)
  • Double Action Only, unlike the real steel version that is single action only.

Comments:
Compared to the my previous review of the ASG Ruger MK I, the MK II for me is a big improvement. The metal upper barrel assembly makes all the difference in terms of weight and feel and with the two-tone look it is for sure a very attractive looking pistol. I also prefer using CO2 for the increased performance of higher fps and less cool down effect over a gas system. I am hopping my Field test Shooting video goes well and the ASG Ruger MK II Dual Tone CO2 6mm Airsoft Pistol performs on point for me.

Umarex HK 45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol Table Top Review

Type: BB air revolver.
Manufacturer: UmarexUSA.
Model: HK 45.
Materials: Metal and plastic (Polymer).
Weight: 1.4 pounds (635 Grams).
Barrel: 4.5 inches, non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Double action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 20 round metal stick magazine.
FPS: 400 fps claimed.


Trigger Pull: Trigger pull on the Umarex HK 45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol is double action only but doesn't feel too bad, it has the traditional longer double action pull but did not find it to be too heavy and teh release point was fairly predictable for me allowing for some good overall accuracy.

Accuracy: I have already done a full Felid Test Shooting Review Video for the Umarex HK 45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol so make sure to check that one out! In summary I got a bit higher fps then claimed at 420 fps with a 5 shot string using a brand new CO2 with RWS 5.1 grain zinc coated steel BB's. From 30 feet away shooting on a paper target using a semi rested posting I was able to place 10 BB's within 1.5 inches, almost close to a 1 inch grouping. The shot placement for me was just a tad to the left and a bit down but several shots hit the bulls eye so out of the box accuracy was really good on this low cost BB pistol.


Build Quality: The Umarex HK 45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol is built fairly basic with few moving parts so there is not much to go wrong, the fit and finish is good and there is metal where it needs to be internally and also the trigger, magazine and slide.

Realism: The Umarex HK 45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol is a very good overall HK 45 Replica BB pistol in terms of size and looks, it has full HK licensing and even has a metal slide and polymer frame like the original real steel HK 45. It is a bit lighter bit not by too much. There is no working slide and the slide catch/release and hammer are molded into the gun. The only working parts would be the safety, magazine release and trigger.
Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros: 

  • Inexpensive overall decent BB gun.
  • Good accuracy and power.
  • Metal where it matters, slide, magazine, trigger, internals.
  • Nice replica of the original HK 45.
  • Fully HK Licensed.
  • White dot sights easy to sight in your target on most backgrounds.
  • Decent double action trigger.
  • Picatinny rail for accessories.

Cons: 

  • None blowback with a fixed slide.
  • Slide catch/release and hammer are moulded in and none functioning.
  • Sights are none adjustable.

Comments:
For a rather low cost CO2 4.5mm steel BB pistol, the Umarex HK 45 has a lot going for it! It is fully HK Licensed with a metal slide and metal parts where you want and need it. The accuracy and power are both good and even the double action trigger is very usable. Sure the Umarex HK 45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol is a pretty basic gun with few moving parts but then again simple is sometimes better in terms of reliability. If you are an HK fan and want a low cost well made and good performing BB pistol then checkout the Umarex HK 45.

Webley MK VI .455 CO2 Shell Loading BB Revolver Table Top Review

Type: BB air revolver.
Manufacturer: Webley & Scott.
Model: Webley MK VI .455.
Materials: Mostly metal with plastic grips.
Weight: 2.4 pounds. (1089 grams)
Barrel: 4.5 inches, non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Revolver, single and double action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 6 rounds.
FPS: 427fps.

Trigger Pull: Trigger pull on the Webley MK VI .455 CO2 Shell Loading BB Revolver is great in both single and double action, for a shell loading revolver the double action is the best I have come across with next to no friction like I would usually find with shell loading revolvers when shot in double action mode.

Accuracy: I tested the Webley MK VI .455 CO2 Shell Loading BB Revolver on my pool deck first off shooting 6 rounds through my Chronograph. The claimed fps is 427, I got really close to 400 fps in my testing so there is the potential for this revolver to shoot up into the low 400's. When I stepped back 30 feet and shot 6 rounds form my semi rested position, I got a really tight 1 inch group with almost all the rounds landing in the bulls eye. My shots where just a hair to the right but not by much which is good since the sights on this pistol are none adjustable. You can check-out my full Field Test Shooting Video here!

Build Quality: The Webley MK VI .455 CO2 Shell Loading BB Revolver is pretty much an all metal construction other than the plastic grips and any internal seals. The fit and finish is excellent with a great overall weight in the hand. The only complaint I have is that the grips being a thin plastic seem kind of low quality compared to the rest of this otherwise high quality Webley CO2 BB Revolver.

Realism: In terms of replicating a real steel Webley MK VI .455, Webley did a really great job with their CO2 BB firing version. Webley even includes a Small Arms Training Manual based off of the real steel variant. Webley based the BB CO2 MK VI from the original blueprints and the licensing is form the original 1915 version. The only real tell that this is a CO2 BB revolver would be the small safety switch on the lower right side frame and the CO2 valve located right behind the hammer.
Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros: 

  • Looks amazing and is a very accurate replica of the real steel Webley MK VI.
  • Great weight and feel in the hand at 2.4 pounds
  • nice deep Recessed barrel with true .455 caliber opening.
  • Break barrel design makes it really easy to load the dummy shells.
  • Hammer / trigger action is great in single and double action.
  • Webley Licensed.
  • Well concealed CO2.
  • Fairly discreet safety location.
  • No ugly warning instructions on the gun!

Cons:

  • One of the higher cost shell loading revolvers we sell.
  • Sights are none adjustable.
  • Real version would shoot .455 caliber rounds, the dummy shells are actually closer to 357.
  • Could be a bit loud for some back yard shooters?
  • Plastic grips seem a bit cheap compared to the rest of this high quality gun.

Comments:
Another classic shell loading CO2 BB Revolver, nothing wrong with that, I remember a time when finding a realistic revolver, even a modern version was hard to do. Now we have a growing selection of super realistic revolvers that replica their original real steel variation with ultra realism. The Webley MK VI .455 CO2 Shell Loading CO2 BB Revolver is no exception and makes for yet another option if you want a well designed, super functional and ultra realistic classic BB revolver.
