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.

Umarex Polymer Colt Python 357 CO2 BB Revolver Field Test Review

You have seen my Field Test Shooting video for the Shell Loading Umarex Colt Python BB Revolver but this time around I am testing out the less expensive lighter and higher capacity polymer version. As per my typical Filed Test Shooting Reviews I shoot 5 rounds through my Chronograph for an average real world fps velocity and then I step back 30 feet and shoot 10 rounds at a paper target using a somewhat rested position for best results.

In part one test of the Umarex Polymer Colt Python 357 CO2 BB Revolver, the Chronograph velocity test I managed to get 5 reading out of 10 shots (Chrony was acting up again) and averaged 426 fps using 5.1 grain zinc coated RWS BB's with a brand new 12 gram CO2. Perhaps my average would have been slightly higher if I got all 5 readings on the first 5 shots since the fps is always a bit higher. My highest reading was 442 fps while my lowest reading near the end was 406 fps.

Part two, the accuracy component to this Shooting Field Test gave my fairly good results but perhaps not as good as the all Metal Shell Loading Umarex Colt Python I tested out earlier. I did find the Umarex Polymer Colt Python 357 CO2 BB Revolver shot well centered but got about a 2 inch grouping shooting 10 rounds on the paper target. If you find yours is not set to shoot exactly on the bulls eye you can easily adjust the sights for windage and elevation.

If you are wanting a higher than 6 round CO2 BB Revolver with a low price tag, good velocity, easy loading, adjustable sights, a smooth single and double action trigger and decent accuracy than checkout the Umarex Polymer Colt Python 357 CO2 BB Revolver!
