Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm Chronograph and Shooting Test

I wanted to go back and do a full Chronograph Chrony test for my Umarex PX4 Storm and I thought I may as well do a live target shooting test while I was at it. I also thought I would try out my under barrel laser sight and see how it worked and what it looked like while filming it shooting in action. The PX4 shot an average of around 340 fps using 6.9 grain RWS pellets.

And lastly, I pulled out my Casio high speed camera and shot the blowback action of the PX4 Storm, first in real time and then also slowed down to 420 frames per second.

Here is my YouTube video showing my Chronograph and Shooting results for the Umarex PX4 Storm:

Added the Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm to the Store

A few more Store product updates... I just added the Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm to go along with the PX4 Storm Recon we have in our Replica Airguns Store.

The Beretta Px4 Storm Recon air pistol is not only a BB gun, but a pellet gun as well. It will shoot either projectile from its revolutionary dual-ended magazine. This 16-shot repeater will have you shooting as fast as you can pull the trigger. There's an 8-shot rotary clip on one end of the stick mag, and another one at the other end. Since it shoots BBs or pellets, you'll have more flexibility with ammo choice.

A 12-gram CO2 is easily loaded into the grip and gives you plenty of shots before you need a refill. There's even an accessory rail under the barrel. Like the handgun, it has real blowback action, it really kicks, giving you a feeling of power that most airguns only hope to achieve! Once you start shooting, you won't want to stop, so get lots of RWS pellets, BBs and Walther CO2.

  • .177 Pellet & 4.5mm BB
  • CO2 Powered
  • 16 round magazine (8 on each end)
  • 380 fps
  • 1.6 pounds
  • 4.5 inch steel rifled barrel
  • Single and double action

Umarex Beretta PX4 Storm Recon CO2 Blowback Pellet-BB Gun Review

Related Posts:

I've already done a review of the Non-Tactical Umarex PX4 Storm CO2 Blowback Pellet-BB Airgun so make sure to read up on it and also checkout my YouTube Video Review.

This post/video is mainly just to show you what the differences are between the Tactical Recon Version and Non-Tactical versions of the PX4 Storm and talk a little about the added accessories included in the Tactical version.

The base gun is literally exactly the same except for the two-tone coloration on the Tactical version. The Tactical version obviously comes with the addition of several accessories which makes it the "Tactical Model".

Firstly, there is the addition of the Suppressor. With an airgun, usually a suppressor is mainly for show as sound level is not often an issue! That said, an airgun can benefit from a suppressor in one big way - a longer barrel meaning more FPS. Unfortunately Umarex did not take advantage of adding barrel length to the PX4 Tactical model and I'm not really sure why? Even with a longer barrel I double that the PX4 Storm would exceed 500 FPS excluding it from the Canadian market. That's just my two cents on the suppressor but on a good note it seems to be all metal and well built.

There is also the addition of a "Tactical Bridge Mount" that allows you to add more accessories than just the under barrel ones available to the Non-Tactical version. The Tactical Bridge Mount actually gives you four location to mount more accessories - (bottom, top and both sides). The Tactical Bridge Mount is not the most ridged of mounts but it does the job and because it is more flexiable it may be less prone to breakage in a fall.

Umarex takes advantage of these rail locations by including a Red-Dot scope on the top and a Tactical Light on the left side. The Red-Dot scope is decent but there is room for improvement as it's fairly entry level. The Walther Tactical Light on the other hand is very nice and comes with a pressure sensitive thumb grip switch.

All in all you will pay about double for teh PX4 Storm Recon over the basic PX4 Storm but it does make for an intimidating looking hand gun especially if you're into that tactical look!
