Umarex Beretta Elite II and HK45 CO2 Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

Type: Airsoft Pistols.
Manufacturer: UmarexUSA.
Model: Beretta Elite IIHK45.
Materials: Metal and plastic (Polymer).
Weight: 1.5 pounds (680 grams) & 1.36 pounds (620 grams).
Barrel: 4.5 inches, non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Double action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 15 round metal stick magazine.
FPS: 380 & 400 fps claimed.

 

Trigger Pull: Trigger pull on both the Umarex Beretta Elite II and Umarex HK45 is double action only but they don't feel too bad, they have that traditional longer double action pull but I did not find it to be too heavy and the release point is fairly predictable for me which should allow for some good overall accuracy when I do my future Field Test Shooting Review.

Accuracy: I have done a full Felid Test Shooting Review Video for the Umarex HK 45 Metal Slide CO2 4.5mm steel BB Pistol so make sure to check that one out! In summary with the 4.5mm Steel BB version 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. Since both the Umarex Beretta Elite II and Umarex HK45 Airsoft pistols share many of the same mechanical qualities, I should expect similar results even using 6mm plastics BB's, perhaps a bit wider grouping but fps should be pretty close to claimed.

Build Quality: The Umarex Beretta Elite II and Umarex HK45 are 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 in the trigger, magazine and on the HK45 even the slide. Both Airsoft Pistols have decent weight even though there is a fair amount of plastic in them.

Realism: Both Umarex Airsoft pistols are accurate looking replicas of their real steel counterparts, in the case of the Umarex HK45, it is very accurate on almost every detail appearance wise, the Umarex Beretta Elite II is not an exact replica of any one specific Beretta but is based on the Beretta Elite II Brigadier. There is no working slide on either pistol and the slide catch/release and hammer are molded into the plastic. The only working parts would be the safety, magazine release and trigger.
Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros: 

  • Both are fairly low priced.
  • Both have drop our metal magazines
  • Both have tactical rails for adding on accessories.
  • Both are fully licensed.
  • Both have pretty decent weigh to them.
  • The HK45 has a metal slide and white dot sights front and back
  • The Elite II has white dot front sight.

Cons: 

  • Both guns are double action only.
  • Both guns have none working hammers
  • Neither gun has a working slide or blowback action.
  • Both guns have red tips.
  • Non adjustable sights.

Comments:
Considering these Airsoft Pistols are rather low cost, the Umarex Beretta Elite II and Umarex HK45 have a lot going for them! They are fully Beretta and HK licensed through Umarex with a (metal slide in the HK45) and metal parts where you want and need them to be. I am expecting decent accuracy and power from both guns and even the double action triggers are very usable. Sure the both budget Airsoft pistols is a pretty basic airguns with few moving parts but then again simplicity is sometimes better in terms of reliability. If you are an Beretta or HK fan and want low cost well made and good performing Airsoft pistols then checkout these Umarex Airsoft guns.

Umarex HK45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

In this Field test Shooting Review I again get out from under my deck roofing and take my Chronograph and target shooting onto the pool patio. I may as well take advantage of the great summer weather we are having and get some rays while I shoot a video :)

The CO2 BB Pistol I chose for this Field Test Shooting video is the Umarex HK45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol. As per my usual Field Test Shooting Video Reviews, I test out the real world velocity (fps) for the Umarex HK45 BB Pistol by shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph using a brand new CO2 and using 5.1 grain RWS zinc coated Steel BB's. I did  have a few Chronograph issues but managed to get 5 good readings giving me an average of 421 fps.

Then I stepped back 30 feet and shot 10 RWS 5.1 grain zinc coated Steel BB's on a paper target to see how accurate the Umarex HK45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol would be for me on this day. I was impressed to see a tight 1 inch grouping shooting from my rested position. The BB's where well centered on the target, just a hair to the left but good considering the sights are none adjustable.

Overall the velocity and accuracy of the Umarex HK45 are really good for this low cost BB pistol, the double action trigger is a bit long and on the medium pull, side but that is to be expected. The white dot sights make acquiring just about any target easy which may have helped me in my accuracy portion of the test.

Colt Python Polymer - HK45 - Webley & Scott MK6 - Colt SAA Blued CO2 BB Pistol Preview

Some more new guns I will be checking out, well one is just a different finish of the Umarex Colt SAA Revolver but for sure worth taking a look at in this Preview Video.

All the guns in the YouTube Preview Video and CO2 4.5mm BB Pistols, three are styled after revolvers and one is based on a semi auto modern pistol.

Starting with the revolvers I show off the absolutely gorgeous blued finish on the Umarex Colt Single Action Army BB Revolver and it all I can say is it really needs to be seen in person to fully appreciate how great it looks. I was not expecting the blued version to look nicer than the Nickel version but in my opinion it is my favorite of the two. And that's not to say the Nickel version is not a great looking pistol in it's own right.

I've been waiting a while to see firsthand the Webley & Scott MK6 CO2 BB Revolver and it finally came this week. Another really well built and designed classic Revolver to add to the list of shell loading CO2 BB Revolvers. I was really impressed with the trigger and hammer action, both single and double action feel super smooth and the position of the hammer makes for really easy draw for single action shooting. The 2.4 pound all metal weight give the Webley & Scott MKVI great balance and realism, while the top-break design makes for super easy loading.

Not to be mistaken with the Full Metal Shell Loading Umarex Colt Python 357, I take a look at the more affordable Umarex Polymer Colt Python 357 that fits the bill nicely when looking for a BB Revolver with a nice hammer and trigger, fully adjustable sights, and higher than average capacity magazines than your standard revolver.

Last but not least I look at another fairly affordable CO2 BB Pistol, the Umarex HK45. It's a pretty basic CO2 BB pistol but looks really good and has decent weight with its metal slide. The HK45 features white dot sights, a Picatinny rail, an all metal drop out stick magazine and full Heckler and Koch licensing.

Maks sure to check these guns out in our Canada Replica Airguns Store.
