Sig Sauer P250 & P226 - Umarex PX4 Storm - Gamo P25 & MP9 Comparison

Make sure to watch my YouTube video for this Comparison Review as I go into a lot of detail about the similarities and difference with each of these CO2 Blowback Pellet Guns.

Here are some of the main Similarities when comparing the Sig Sauer P250 & P226 - Umarex PX4 Storm - Gamo P25 & MP9:

  • All of these CO2 blowback pellet guns are made for each company in Japan (I am assuming from the same factory?)
  • All of the listed Pellet Airguns shoot .177 caliber pellets (Can be Alloy or Lead)
  • They all have double sided rotary stick magazines that hold 8 rounds on each end for a total of 16 shots per magazine.
  • All of the Airguns use 12 gram CO2.
  • All compared pellet guns have Blowback operation.
  • All of these pellet pistols have single and double action triggers except for the Gamo MP9 which is single action only and needs to be charged on the first shot.
  • They all have rifled barrels.

Here is where we find some key differences between these CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistols:

The FPS Velocity for each Airgun: 

The weight of Each Pellet Gun:

The Barrel Length for each Air Pistol:

The Main Build Materials for each Pellet Pistol:

Is the Ejection Port Cut Out? 

Is it a Replica of a Real Steel Gun?

Gamo PT-85 vs Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm Head to Head Shootout

Installment number 2 of my Head-to-Head Airgun comparisons. In this video I compare the replica Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol versus the Gamo PT-85 CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol. Both are very similar mechanically and use very similar rotary magazines combined with single action hammers and very heavy blowback.

Make sure to checkout my other posts for my Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm and also the  Gamo PT-85.

Watch the video below to see the Beretta PX4 Storm CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol go head to head against the Gamo PT-85 CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol in both a test of the feet per second performance and accuracy shooting at 30 feet using a semi rested position.

Gamo P-25 & PT-85 Blowback Pellet Pistols Full Review

Type: Blowback pellet air pistol.
Manufacturer: GamoUSA.
Model: P-25 & PT-85.
Materials: Metal & polymer construction.
Weight: 1.7 pounds.
Barrel: 4.5 inches, rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto, single and double action.
Ammunition Type: .177 caliber lead pellets.
Ammunition Capacity: 16 shot drop out double sided magazine.
FPS: 450 (with Gamo's PBA® Platinum Pellets.)

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull with both the Gamo P-25 and PT-85 is not too bad at all, it is fairly long as the first stage of the pull actually rotates the rotary magazine to advance each pellet into place, so there is a noticeable slight resistance and click. Once you get past that first stage the trigger actually gets even lighter which can be a bit of a surprise at first! Most shots will happen in single action as the blowback pre-cocks the slide for consecutive shots. If the hammer is not back then you can shoot in double action mode but there will be a heavier trigger pull as the hammer will be cocked using the trigger.

Accuracy: Very respectable for Both Gamo pellet shooters, I shot 1-2 inch 8 shot groupings from 20 feet out in a semi-rested position with open sights, the PT-85 seemed to get the tighter grouping this time but only by a slight bit. I also shot freehand in double action, shooting quickly and was also able to keep both the P-25 and PT-85 well centered and on target. FPS performance for Both Gamo pellet airguns was well under the claimed 450 fps but this was expected as this claim was made using lightweight Gamo's PBA® Platinum Pellets and I used much heavier 7 grain RWS lead pellets for my testing. My 8 shot Chronograph test yielded an average of 354 fps for the Gamo PT-85 and 363 fps for the Gamo P-25. Both Gamo Blowback pistols got 3 good magazines and then 1 questionable magazine before the CO2 was all used up so don't expect to get a lot of shots per CO2 from each airgun.

Realism: The Gamo P-25 and PT-85 look like guns and function like guns but are not replica's of any one particular licensed gun. So in terms of being realistic, yes they are very realistic as far as what defines the look and feel of a gun but no they are not good replicas as they are not intended to be a replica.
Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Very well made and have good weight and feel to them.
  • Very heavy Blowback action.
  • Sights are easy to use with the white dots.
  • Respectable accuracy and power from both guns.
  • Love the way the CO2 is covered and how well designed the Tabs are.
  • Recessed barrel for more realism.
  • Lots of metal where you need it, slide, hammer, trigger, internal areas.

Cons:

  • Not really a replica of any gun?
  • Sights are not adjustable.
  • No slide catch release.
  • Low shots per CO2.

Comments:
Both of these Gamo guns are very well made and are a joy to shoot, my first impression was that they are a lot of gun for the money and I mean that a couple of ways. They are much larger than I expected and also the quality was surprising compared to the low cost. These two Gamo blowback pellet shooters and the Umarex PX4 Storm share many commonalities and the question about which one is the best comes up often, I would say neither gun is better than the other, you will just have to decide what key points from each gun you like best? I can say that the Gamo P-25 and PT-85 are well worth their price tag and I have no question these guns will last you a long time and give you many hours of shooting enjoyment.

Crosman M4-177 Pellet-BB Rifle & Old West M1873 Blank Revolver Update Video

It's always good to start the week off with an update video so everyone knows what's happening short-term and long-term...

I recently acquired a couple new items that I will be reviewing in the near future (along with several other reviews that I will be trying to get to ASAP!) First off is the Crosman M4-177 which is basically a multi-pump pellet and BB shooting replica of an AR or M4 styled carbine used by the US military. The Crosman M4-177 is mostly plastic on the outside but on first inspection seems to be built fairly well. It has removable metal sights and the magazine is also detachable but is not used as a magazine but rather a compartment for storage. The unit I have is the Canadian detuned version which shoots .177 caliber lead pellets and 4.5mm steel BB's at under 500 fps.

I don't currently sell the Crosman M4-177 in the Canada Replica Airguns Store but I do have it available for purchase in the US Replica Airguns Store for my US customers.

I also received my first old west blank shooting revolver (M1873), I have wanted one of these for a while and finally got my hands on one :) Unfortunately this one has a plugged barrel so it vents out of the cylinder area which may get a bit messy. I may see about making this one a front venting gun if possible and of course as long as it's within the law as I plan to make sure the cylinder stays semi plugged so no actual rounds could ever be shot out of it. The Old West M1873 Blank Revolver holds six .380 crimped blanks and is an all metal and wood construction. This should be a fun review!

I also touch upon a few other guns on the list of items I need to review and by the way in an attempt to get caught up I will be doing my Table Top and Shooting reviews combined.

Here are some of the guns that I will be reviewing over the next while... 

Well, I better get at it - make sure to watch my YouTube video version of this Update Video!
