Umarex H.P.P and SA177 Comparison/Review

Related Posts:

I received both of these Umarex blowback BB guns (Umarex H.P.P and the Umarex SA177) about a month ago and so far I have very little to complain about either of them!

Some of the specs:

  • Both of them are CO2 powered
  • Both of them shoot 4.5mm BB's
  • Both of them have blowback action
  • Both of them shoot around 400 FPS
  • The H.P.P  is styled after the Sig Sauer 266
  • The H.P.P is mostly all metal construction
  • The H.P.P has a 15 round magazine
  • The SA177 is styled after the Glock
  • The SA177 has a metal slide and composite frame
  • The SA177 has a 19 round magazine
  • The SA177 has fiber optic sights

Here is a quick summary of these airguns…

Both of these Umarex airguns are great value for the money and both shoot pretty hard and accurate for blowback styled BB guns. Both have long trigger pulls with the SA177 being a bit on the heavy side. Neither one has a very heavy blowback feel but there is enough blowback to make them responsive and fun to shoot.

The construction on both of these BB airguns is overall very good with the SA177 being more realistic in comparison to the H.P.P. The H.P.P tends to be a more comfortable gun to shoot because of its weighty feel in the hand and lighter trigger pull.

I highly recommend both of these air guns. If you're looking for realism then get the SA177, and if you want the better shooter of the two, get the H.P.P.

I will be doing a more thorough shooting review with videos for each one of these Umarex blowback CO2 BB guns in the near future so stay tuned!

Can you show us a full field test of the Colt 1911 special combat.

I'd like to see how accurate it is. Also I'd like to see the slide in action, the hammer and also does it have a last shot lock back on it?

Pete - The Colt Special Combat does not have blowback. I do have a full review of the Colt Special Combat with some examples of the target test results.
