SHOT Show 2016 - Umarex Airguns Interview

No Comments

In this 2016 SHOT Show Interview I talk with Nichol Goines from Umarex USA. Nichol and I discuss some new and somewhat revised products from Umarex like the Full Blowback Smith & Wesson M&P40, the soon to finally be released Beretta Model 92 A1, a new Pellet version of last years Colt Single Action Army Revolver and a reappearance and revision of the Walther PPK CO2 Blowback BB pistol.

Last year Umarex introduced their Colt Single Action Army CO2 BB Revolvers and I would say last year they where on of my highlight airguns for the show. They have been selling like gang-busters! One question people have been asking is if there will be a pellet shooting version? Well now there is and like the Steel BB version the pellets load from the back of the shell making it super easy to reload the removable brass shells. The new Pellet SAA Revolver also has a rifled barrel to help with accuracy.

M&

I would have to say this years gun highlight well at least from Umarex is their new Smith & Wesson M&P40 full blowback CO2 BB Pistol. It is a perfect copy of the real steal version complete with a full size drop out magazine and full Beretta licensing. I really hope this one ships soon and does not get delayed like the Beretta Model 92 A1 introduced last year and still yet to be shipped :(

Speaking of the Beretta Model 92 A1 CO2 Blowback BB pistol. It is finally getting released this February and like the S&W M&P40, is a virtual identical replica of the original Beretta Mod. 92 A1 complete with full blowback, a full size drop out magazine and of course all the trades and licensing in all the right locations.

Last and not least but still worth noting is the CO2 Blowback BB shooting Walther PPK. It kind of dropped out of productions which is a real shame since it was the replica BB pistol that got all of this started for me several years back and to this day is still a lot of fun ot shoot! Even James Bond went back to the PPK for the latest 007 movie! Well it's back and this time Umarex got rid of the ugly CO2 tab and replaced it with a discreet Allen key screw. Saves us all from doing the CO2 screw mod :)

Umarex PPK 4.5mm Steel BB Modified Full Auto Fun

No Comments

Some more Full Auto Fun Videos coming at you and make sure to check my previous ones out too!

In this Full Auto Fun Field Test Shooting video I bring out my original Umarex Walther PPK Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. The PPK I converted to full auto and that started it all off by being my first YouTube video upload. Wow, that was a while ago now!

I do have to say, modifying the PPK to Full Auto is not recommended, mine originally worked well but the heavy blowback in full auto eventually broke the firing pin setup and I lost it somewhere in my back field. I had to Macgyver a bolt in place to kind of work but now my Full Auto Modded PPK shoots out of control, what I mean by this is when I press the trigger, it does not stop shooting until all the BB's are gone. Safe, I don't think so!

My suggestion is to leave the Umarex Walther PPK as is, it truly is a an awesome CO2 Blowback BB replica with some really decent blowback recoil in a small airgun.

Umarex Walther PPK CO2 Tab Modification Tutorial

No Comments

After many many requests to show how the Umarex Walther PPK CO2 Tab Modification is done I have relented to public demand. I don't actually cut my tab in this PPK CO2 Tab Modification Video but I do go step-by-step in detail and compare my modified Umarex PPK to my unmodified Umarex PPK. It is really very basic on how this is done and only a hack say and perhaps a file are all that is required to make the modifications to the PPK CO2 tab in order to make it flush with the bottom of the handle area.

Your best bet is to simply watch my YouTube Video located below and follow the steps there but here it is in text form:

  1. Place an empty (already pierced) CO2 into your Umarex Walther PPK and tighten the unmodified CO2 tab until fully tightened, just like you would tighten a fresh CO2.
  2. Take note at how many threads are exposed between the bottom of the handle and the top of the plastic CO2 tab, there should be about 2-4 threads exposed.
  3. Unscrew the CO2 tab all the way, place the PPK BB Pistol so it is secure (in a vice of some sort) and use a hacksaw or dremel to shorten the CO2 screw just above the plastic tab at the thread location you previously noted. Be conservative as you can always cut or file the screw a bit shorter if your first cut was not short enough.
  4. Now use the same hacksaw or dremel to cut a notch in the exposed cut area of the CO2 screw so that you can use a slot screwdriver to tighten the CO2 screw.
  5. That's it - Enjoy your modified Umarex Walther PPK CO2 BB Pistol!

Umarex Walther PPK/S CO2 BB Gun Chronograph - Shooting & Slow-mo

5 Comments

Another filed test video in the series. This one is of the Umarex Walther PPK/S CO2 4.5mm BB pistol, I show you both my regular unmodified all black PPK/S and shoot it through my Chrony Chronograph with an averaged reading of 282 FPS, not bad considering the manufacturers claim is 295.

I also shoot 8 rounds with my stock Umarex PPK/S at a target to see what kind of accuracy I get, and just for fun I shoot a 15 round magazine into the same target with my modified fully-auto sliver slided PPK/S.

To finish things up, I slowdown the action just a bit using my high speed Casio camera to capture the blowback action of both my stock and modified Umarex Walther PPK's.

Enjoy my YouTube Video of my Umarex Walther PPK/S CO2 BB pistols getting Chronographed, shooting at a target and slowed down a bit with my High Speed Camera.

EKOL Major 9mm P.A.K. 007 PPK Blank Gun Review

10 Comments

Related Posts:

Type: Blank Pistol.
Manufacturer: EKOL - VOLTRAN.
Model: Major.
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 1.25 pounds.
Barrel: Semi plugged - front firing.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Semi auto single action.
Ammunition Type: 9mm P.A.K. blanks.
Ammunition Capacity: 7+1 rounds.
FPS: N/A.
Trigger Pull: The EKOL Major is single action only, the trigger pull is relatively light as would be expected.
Accuracy: N/A.
Build Quality: The build quality is similar to that of my Zoraki blank guns. The EKOL Major is well built and uses good quality materials, this gun is almost all metal. The finish quality is typical of other Turkish guns - good but not perfect, the satin finish on the Major looks really good giving the gun a nice two-tone look. I can't say I like the grips all that much as they are a bit shinny, but they do the job and don't to be brittle or anything. The gun seems solid and the fit and finish are also respectable.
Realism: The EKOL Major is a copy of the Walther PPK pistol most notoriously used by Agent 007 in many of the early James Bond movies. It is a fairly accurate PPK copy other than the magazine release which on the EKOL Major is located on the bottom of the handle just behind the magazine, whereas on the real Walther PPK it is located on the left side of the frame just behind the trigger.
Purchased From: the Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • In Canada you can only get this gun in a blank version unless you have a prohibited gun license.
  • If you're a James Bond fan, would make a great addition to your 007 collection.
  • Performed well - no loading, ejecting or misfires.
  • Even though it's small it still can take 7+1 rounds of 9mm P.A.K. ammo.
  • One of the lower priced blank guns.
  • Nice Satin two-tone finish.

Cons:

  • Magazine ejector is on the bottom and not the side like a real PPK, but it's still effective.
  • No slide release but this is true to the original design.
  • I wouldn't of minded the grips to be more of a matte finished, not a big fan of shinny grips

Comments:
The EKOL Major is a nice overall 9mm P.A.K. blank shooter, it has a very simple design and the classic semi auto compact pistol look. It is one of the easier guns to filed strip making it easy to clean if you plan on using it regularly. If your a James Bond fan and want the Agent 007 sidearm without the hassle of actually purchasing a real Walther PPK then the EKOL Major might just be right for you.

Umarex Walther PPK/S Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Review

4 Comments

Related Posts:

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Umarex.
Model: Walther PPK/S (Black).
Materials: Mostly metal with some plastic parts.
Weight: 1.2 pounds.
Barrel: 3.5 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto, blowback, single action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 15 round magazine.
FPS: 295.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on this gun is very light as a result of the true blowback action cocking the hammer with each shot.
Accuracy: For a short barreled non-riiffled BB pistol it tested fairly well with most of the BB's grouping within a 2 inch area at 20 feet out. There where some stragglers however.
Build Quality: This gun is almost entirely metal with the exception of the pistol grips, safety lever, magazine and outer barrel shroud. It has excellent detail and the fit and finish are pretty good.
Realism: The Umarex PPK/S is a replica of the actual Walther PPK/S, well know in the popular 007 James Bond movies. It has the Walther licensing on it in all the right places and overall looks a lot like the real Walther PPK/S with the exception of the lower handle and magazine release area. The handle on the BB version is a bit too long and the oversized CO2 piercing screw really takes away from the potential realism of this gun. That said, it's rather easy to cut the piercing crew shorter and add a notch in it so you can alternatively use a screwdriver to tighten it and gain back a bit more realism.
Purchased From: The Replica Airgun Store.

Pros:

  • Good reproduction of the original Walther PPK/S.
  • Would make an excellent training gun as it has a similar size, weight, and feel to the actual Walther PPK/S.
  • Blowback action and very light trigger pull makes it really fun to shoot.
  • Decent accuracy for a short barreled BB pistol.
  • Inexpensive but good overall quality (made in Japan)

Cons:

  • Heavy usage of CO2.
  • Fairly low 295 FPS.
  • Plastic magazine and out of place safety lever.
  • The CO2 piercing screw is really ugly and a realism killer for this gun.

Comments:
The Umarex Walther PPK/S BB pistol in my opinion is a must have collector piece. Even if you're not a big airgun fan, this is a great way to own virtually the same gun James Bond used in his early 007 movies. The Umarex PPK is a well made fun shooter at an affordable price with surprisingly not too bad accuracy.

Two New Airguns - Umarex PPK/S and Umarex Beretta Elite II

2 Comments

Related Posts:

My mailbox was full of goodies for me yesterday! I received two Air Guns: An Umarex PPK/S and an Umarex Beretta Elite II. The PPK/S is the solid black version and is an all metal CO2 blowback BB shooter. The Beretta Elite II is also a CO2 BB gun with a mostly plastic exterior but has the higher velocity of up to 480 FPS.

Both of them came in the traditional plastic shell packaging with no real accessories other than the manual.

The reason I purchased another PPK/S is because I really want to do a full review of the Umarex PPK. My nickel slide PPK/S is modified to shoot in full auto only and also has the CO2 screw modification so I didn't think it would be the best reviewing sample. I will use my new black PPK for the review but of course bring my nickel version in for comparison.

The Umarex Beretta Elite II was a bit of an afterthought, acquired after my Low Cost Gun Comparison Review. There is only so many guns you can review at one time, but the Beretta Elite II fits in perfectly with the other low cost CO2 BB guns. I will be reviewing the Beretta Elite II on its own but will most likely bring back some of the others to compare features.

I look forward to reviewing both of these BB guns in the near future!

Worlds Smallest Full Auto BB Gun

8 Comments

This is a video I posted on YouTube a while back that has gotten a lot of views (Now Over 300,000). It's basically me and a friend shooting a couple of guns. The first set of guns (One in each hand - Tomb Raider Style) are two Walther CP99 Compacts made by Umarex. The CP99 Compact is a great little BB gun with a very fast and light trigger pull.

Next up is another Umarex product, a Walther PPK. This one is moded to fire Full Auto, making it one of the smallest Full Auto BB Guns. Too bad it's all over so fast! I'll look at doing some proper reviews of these fine Airguns down the road...
