Cybergun Airsoft 1911 Rail Gun - Taurus PT92 - Sig X-five - SP 2022 Preview

No Comments

I'm back from my family Vacation in sunny Oceanside California and ready to start making more review videos for everyone! To kick things off I show you 6 Cybergun Airsoft pistols. All of these bad boys are actually made by KWC, Cybergun licenses the Colt, Taurus and Sig Sauer names and redistributes them out of the US hence the orange tips on most of the barrels.

All five Cybergun pistols are full metal with blowback operation with the exception of the Sig Sauer SP2022 which is non-blowback and primarily plastic including the frame, slide and even the magazine. All these Cybergun Airsoft Pistols shoot 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's and use 12 gram CO2 cartridges in their full size drop out magazines.

ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Blank Revolver.
Manufacturer: ROHM (RÖHM).
Model: RG-49
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 439 grams 15.5 ounces.
Barrel: Removable - Front firing designed for flares.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Single & double action.
Ammunition Type: .22 caliber crimped.
Ammunition Capacity: 7 rounds.
FPS: N/A.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver in single action is very light having virtually no take up at all. The double action trigger pull is much heavier with a smooth release. Mechanically the trigger feels really good.

Accuracy: NA.
Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver is excellent, being German made its built to last and the fit and finish is typical German quality. There are steel parts where they need to be like in the barrel, pins, screws and reenforcing parts, the rest of the gun is generally made out of a zinc metal with only the simulated wood grips being made out of plastic.

Realism: The ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver is not an exact replica of any given gun in production as this would make importing it into Canada even more difficult, but it is styled after a Smith & Wesson Snub Nosed Revolver. As for looking like and working like a real gun, the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver looks and sounds like a real gun, with the exception of the dangerous bullet coming out of the barrel!
Purchase from: The Replica Airguns Canada Store.

Pros:

  • German made Quality.

  • All metal gun with reenforced steel in some areas.

  • Front firing and capable of shooting flares.

  • .22 caliber blanks are less expensive and not as loud to use.

  • Comes with removable Flare adaptor & Cleaning rod.

  • Super compact and portable.

  • Highest capacity ROHM Revolver with 7 round cylinder.

Cons:

  • Smaller caliber blanks are not as loud or powerful.

  • Can be considered a bit expensive due to blank guns in general being hard to get and in high demand in Canada.

Comments:
The main purpose of the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver is to make noise along with the added ability to shoot flares and that's exactly what you're getting here. The ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver may not be as elegant as the other ROHM revolvers with their nicer barrels but with the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver you are getting the most compact 7 round shooter and at a bit lower price than the other full sized ROHM Blank Guns.

Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol Table Top Review

1 Comment

Type: Blowback Pellet & BB Pistol.
Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex.
Model: SA10.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 2.05 pounds (930 grams).
Barrel: Metal rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single & double action.
Ammunition Type: .177 caliber pellets & 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 8x4 round rotary full size drop out metal magazine.
FPS: Claimed 420.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol is similar to most of the rotary magazine styled pellet pistols. The blowback operation does cock the hammer allowing for a lighter single action styled trigger pull but the trigger pull length is still about the same as shooting in double action. There is less trigger pull weight when the hammer is back shooting in single action but the first part of the trigger pull is necessary in order to rotate the magazine.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol so I have no feedback to share so far but I plan to test out the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol during my next indoor Sea Can Field Test Shooting video. I will be testing out both pellets and BB's for velocity and accuracy.

Build Quality: The Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol feel great in the hand and has a nice weight and solid feel to it. Like most modern day pistols the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol has a metal slide and polymer frame, you will also find a lot of internal metal parts along with a full size drop out metal magazine. Fit and finish are also very good.

Realism: The Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol is not a copy or replica of any actual real steel gun in production but to me it most resembles a Sig Sauer, not exactly as the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol does incorporate its own design and style. You will find a lot of real gun attributes  that make this gun look and feel the deal. Like it's blowback operation, full see drop out metal magazine, wide open recessed barrel and ability to be field stripped.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Great weight and feel to it, build quality seems good.

  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.

  • Unique full size drop out metal magazine that holds extra rotary magazines on it for quick reloading.

  • Have the option of shooting Steel BB’s or pellets.

  • Has a rifled barrel.

  • Gold barrel looks good.

  • Barrel tip is removable allowing for possible mock suppressor or silencer.

  • Slide catch is actually a safety making it nice and discreet.

  • Can easily field strip the gun.

  • Warning instruction are not overpowering.

Cons:

  • No white or yellow dot sight on the front and they are non-adjustable.

  • Trigger safety is just for show.

  • Not really a replica but a great looking gun none the less.

Comments:

I have been waiting a while to get my hands on the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol and now that I have it for review I can say it seems to be a really well put together CO2 Blowback Airgun. OF course I still need to get some shooting in with it till I make my final decision but so far I am liking what I am seeing. Generally prefer actual Replica Airguns but the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol does have a really nice look and feel to it, I don't even mind the Gold barrel and I am usually not a big Gold Gun fan. The unique magazine design with its snap in rotary Pellet and BB magazines shoudl come in handy when it coms time for testing and the ability to shoot either Pellets or BB's does give the shooter more options.

If you're interested in picking up an Umarex SA10 for yourself you can find them in our Replica Airguns Canada and US Online Store.

Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver Field Test Review

No Comments

Before I get into this Field Test Shooting Review for the Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver I did want to mention again that we do have a Contest Giveaway going on till the end of this month where we will be giving away an Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver to a Canada or US Winner. Sorry we can not ship outside of Canada or the US due to airgun and import regulations. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of this review to enter the contest.

Back to the Field Test Shooting Review! Rather than just testing the 3.5 inch barreled Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver by itself, I also compare it to two other Umarex SAA Revolvers, in 5.5 and 7.5 inches version. I wanted to see how the barrel length effected power and accuracy and I was kind of surprised at the results.

I shot three rounds from each Umarex SAA Pellet Revolver through my Chrony Chronograph and averaged them out for each gun. Umarex claims the Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver to get around 340 fps and it shot an average of 323fps with a brand new CO2 and using 8.2 gram lead pellets, not bad at all considering the pellet weight and colder temperature of around 15 degrees Celsius. next I shot the 5.5 inch Umarex SAA Pellet Revolver in the same manner and averaged 347fps which is kind of what I was expecting die to the anger barrel. SO when I came to the 7.5 inch Umarex SAA Pellet Revolver I was expecting even higher results but was surprised by my results which where exactly the same as the 3.5 inch version coming in at 323fps? Perhaps the valve was a bit detuned on the 7.5 inches version, I am not sure?

Moving on to the accuracy performance for the Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver. Again I sued the same 8.2 grain RWS flathead pellets and emptied a full cylinder into my paper target positioned 30 feet downrange. My accuracy result for the Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver where decent with my 6 shoot group getting around a 2 inches and well centered on the target, just a lad high but not by much. I am pretty sure I pulled one of the shots so I think I should of gotten closer to 1.5 inches. Next I Shot the 5.5 inch UmarexSAA Pellet Revolver but seemed to struggle a bit with it. I found the 5.5 inch Umarex SAA Pellet Revolver shot to the left and my 6 shot grouping was a lot more spread out exceeding 2 inches by a bit. Lastly I tested out the 7.5 inch Umarex SAA Pellet Revolver and it was the clear winner placing all 6 rounds wishing the black bullseye getting close to a 1 inch grouping. I love it when that happens :)

So in the end the 5.5 inch Umarex SAA Pellet Revolver had the most power, the 7.5 inch Umarex SAA Pellet Revolver was the most accurate and that leaves us with the Umarex Legends Ace in the Hole SAA Pellet Revolver which had the best compromise of power and accuracy at the end of the day.

Cybergun Famas AEG Airsoft Rifle Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

In this yet another AEG Airsoft Field Test Shooting Video Review I mainly focus on the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle and put it through my typical velocity and accuracy tests I conduct in the Replica Airguns Indoor Sea Can Shooting Range. I also show some other similar Bullpup styled AEG Airsoft Rifles in comparison that I plan on also reviewing very soon, the IWI Tavor 21 Elite Force and two AEG Bullpups from ASG, the Steyr Aug A2 and Steyr Aug A3 Proline Series.. 

So how did the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle perform? I placed 5 rounds through my Chrony Chronograph using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's and I got right around a 360 fps average which is should be just about right for most indoor or outdoor shooting environments. Velocity consistency was also good.

Moving on to the accuracy portion of my indoor sea can field test, I place my paper target 30 feet down range and put 10 rounds into the target shooting from a rested seated position with a sandbag up front for stability. The Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle shot a nice 1.5 to 2 inch grouping just a little high but well centered. The front and back sigh are both adjustable making windage and elevation corrections very easy to do. You could also play around with the hop-up to adjust elevation at various ranges.

In full auto mode the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle performed really well, I pretty much empty the magazine and the grouping only spread out to about 3 inches making a clean 3 inch hole in my paper target. There is something very gratifying about unloading an entree magazine in full auto and checking out the damage it caused :)

All in all the Cybergun Famas AEG Bullpup Airsoft Rifle is a great performer at a pretty low price tag of around $200 Canadian at the time of this review. If you want a slightly higher quality version than also checkout the Cybergun Famas F1 EVO Version which is only about $90 more and but offers better build material and and internals improvements.

You can also buy the Cybergun Famas AEG Airsoft Rifle in our US Replica Airguns Store!

ASG CAA M4 Sportline AEG Airsoft Rifle Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I mainly focus on the ASG CAA M4 Sportline AEG Airsoft Rifle and put it through my typical velocity and accuracy tests I conduct in the Replica Airguns Sea Can Shooting Range. I do compare the ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle to the ASG CAA M4 Sportline version since they look virtually identical but do have some notable differences, like the build materials and much lower cost for the ASG CAA M4 Sportline AEG Airsoft Rifle. That said both ASG CAA M4 AEG Airsoft Rifles did perform very similarly other than a bit of a velocity bump with the ASG CAA M4 Proline model over the Sportline I test in this video.

So how did the ASG CAA M4 Sportline AEG Airsoft Rifle perform? I placed 5 rounds through my Chrony Chronograph using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's and I got a 335 average fps which is a bit lower than the ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle but still great for a variety of Airsoft shooting situations. I did notice that the FPS seemed to be creeping up slowly as I tested it, maybe some break in was taking place?

Moving on to the accuracy portion of my indoor field test, I place my paper target 30 feet down range and put 10 rounds into the target shooting from a rested seated position with a sandbag up front. The ASG CAA M4 Sportline AEG Airsoft Rifle shot a nice 1.5 to 2 inch grouping a little to the right of the bulls-eye and slightly low, which I can easily correct using the adjustable sights and hop-up adjustments. I like to conduct my field tests with all the guns right out of the box and with no adjustments prior to my testing since that's the way you're going to get them and you may have to also make some small correction to the sights and or hop-up adjustments.

In full auto mode the ASG CAA M4 Sportline AEG Airsoft Rifle didn't miss a beat. I emptied what was left of the mag (About 130 rounds or so) in no time with a few quick bursts making a nice mess of the paper target which is the result I'm looking for in full auto mode :)

All in all the ASG CAA M4 Sportline AEG Airsoft Rifle is a decent quality Airsoft gun at an affordable price-tag. If you're budget is a higher than checkout my previous Field Test Shooting Video of the higher end ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle.

ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle Field Test Shooting Review

1 Comment

In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I mainly focus on the ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle and put it through my typical velocity and accuracy tests I conduct in the Replica Airguns Sea Can Shooting Range. I do compare the ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle to the ASG CAA M4 Sportline version since they look virtually identical but do have some notable differences, like the build materials and perhaps a few internal upgrades found in the Proline version. That said both ASG CAA M4 AEG Airsoft Rifles did perform rather similarly other than a bit of a velocity bump with the ASG CAA M4 Proline model.

So how did the ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle perform? I placed 5 rounds through my Chrony Chronograph using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's and I got a very respectable 392 average fps with most of the five shots actually getting 392 fps so very consistent velocity for sure.

Moving on to the accuracy portion of my indoor field test, I place my paper target 30 feet down range and put 10 rounds into the target shooting from a rested seated position with a sandbag up front. The ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle shot a tight 1.5 inch grouping just to the right of the bullseye which I can easily correct using the adjustable sights. I like to conduct my field tests with all the guns right out of the box and with no adjustments prior to my testing since that's the way you're going to get them and you may have to also make some small correction to the sights and or hop-up adjustments.

In full auto mode the ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle didn't miss a beat. I emptied what was left of the mag (About 200 rounds or so) in no time at all and made a nice mess of the paper target which is what I am usually going for :)

All in all the ASG CAA M4 Proline AEG Airsoft Rifle is a very high quality Airsoft gun but does come at a premium pricetag. If you're budget is a bit lower than checkout my upcoming Field Test Shooting Video of the more economical ASG CAA M4 Sportily AEG Airsoft Rifle which will be out this week.

G&G ARP-556 and ARP-9 AEG Airsoft CQB Table Top Review Review

No Comments

Type: Airsoft AR, M4, M16 Styled Rifle.
Manufacturer: G&G.
Model: ARP-556 and ARP-9.
Materials: Metal and plastic/polymer construction.
Weight: (ARP-9 4.4 pounds) (ARP-556 5.3 pounds).
Barrel: 6 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: AEG non-blowback.
Action: Semi & full auto SAO.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: (ARP-9 300) (ARP-556 450).
FPS: 400+.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the G&G ARP rifles is an electric mechanical trigger that simulates a single action only trigger. There is essentially a light spring internally which supplies the trigger pressure. Pressure is even and smooth.

Accuracy: I have already made my Field Test Shooting Video Review for the G&G ARP-556 and ARP-9 AEG Airsoft CQB Rifles so make sure to watch that video for the results. Both G&G AEG Airsoft Rifles share similar internal components so I expect them to both shoot about the same in terms of power and accuracy. My testing of the G&G ARP-556 AEG Airsoft CQB found an average fps of about 400 using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's. Shooting at my paper target 30 feet down range, pretty much every shot hit the 1.5 inch bulls eye!

Build Quality: As with all of the G&G product line the G&G ARP-556 and ARP-9 AEG Airsoft CQB Rifles are really well made. Fit and finish is flawless and I had no issues shooting these guns at all. Every engagement of the trigger resulted in an Airsoft BB downrange and in full auto mode BB's where literally streaming from the barrel :) You will find a little more metal specifically in the receiver for the G&G ARP-556 over the G&G ARP-9 AEG Airsoft CQB Rifle which does make the ARP-556 a little bit heavier but not by much.

Realism: Both the G&G ARP-556 and ARP-9 AEG Airsoft CQB Rifles are super realistic, they are based on the AR, M4, M16 Rifle design but are scaled down for tactical close quarters use with their compact barrels and adjustable stocks. Most parts work as you would find on a real steel M4 like the charging handle, dust cover, simulated forward assist and of course the magazine releases. There is however no blowback operation but I can attest that if you have an 11.2 volt battery and are shooting in full auto you will feel this gun a rock'n.

Purchased From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • 2 lower and higher priced models with similar looks and performance to choose from. 
  • Super compact CQB rifles.
  • Fully adjustable pop-up iron sights front and back.
  • Crown flash hider acts as a sound amplifier if you’re into that sort of thing?
  • Great internals, Internally upgraded with an ETU and MOSFET system.
  • Skeltonized PDW stock perfect for close quarters combat.
  • Nice 400 feet per second velocity, good for close and even further out ranges.
  • Very accurate, one of the best Airsoft rifles tested to date.
  • ARP-526 has an ambidextrous selector / safety switch.
  • ARP-556 has full metal receiver.
  • ARP-9 is a bit lighter and less tiring to carry, great if you plan to add on a bunch of accessories.

Cons:

  • No blowback operation.
  • ARP-9 has a plastic receiver.
  • You need some pretty compact batteries to fit into the short bumper tube.

Comments:

I am going to go on the record and say that the G&G ARP-556 and ARP-9 AEG Airsoft CQB Rifles would be my go to Airsoft battle rifle of choice. They have enough power for out door shooting and not too much for indoor shooting. Their compact and lightweight design will make them super easy to carry around all day and quick to place on any target in a hurry. Accuracy is not a concern since these AEG Airsoft Rifles can cut a bullseye out of a paper target no problem. Price for what you get, quality, looks. performance are all top notch with either choice of G&G ARP-556 or ARP-9 AEG Airsoft CQB Rifle you decide to go with.

Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

Another revisit for an inexpensive and fun BB shooter, the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle! I have done some previous video reviews and comparisons for the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle so make sure to check them out. I also recently did an update Field Test Shooting Video for the Daisy Red Ryder BB gun which is a very comparable airgun to the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle.

Here is a quick overview of the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle, it's designed for younger smaller shooter with it's short stock but it's still fun of all ages! You can store 700 4.5mm Steel BB's in its internal magazine and Crosman claims a max velocity of 350 fps. Like the Daisy Red Ryder the power source is a spring piston that is activated by the lever action.

Now let's talk about how the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle performed in my Sea Can Field Test Shooting test...  Crosman claims a max fps of 350, my Chronograph results came in at a 5 shot average of 316 fps which is not bad compared to the Daisy Red Ryder that also has a claimed fps of 350 but only shot around 240 fps.

So the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle is the clear winner in terms of velocity over the Daisy Red Ryder but what about accuracy? That's a different story, the Crosman did not perform all that great for me shooting at a paper target 30 feet away using a rested shooting position. I shot 10 rounds at my paper target and got about a 5-6 inch grouping, there was an underlying smaller tight group that was closer to about 3 inches but a god 3-4 of the BB's came out of it spreading out the group significantly.  Compare that to the Daisy Red Ryder with a nice tight 2 inch group.

So what do you want? Power or accuracy? I figure since the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle is really targeted of the younger more entry level shooter that it should have good accuracy so they know when they are doing it right and less concerned on if the gun is performing as it should. Sure power is fun and smashing your targets does give a certain satisfaction but you have to hit the target first :)

Both the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle and Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun are fun airguns for sure, I guess it just comes down to which one you want to buy...

Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Table Top Review

2 Comments

Type: Air Pistol.
Manufacturer: Sig Sauer
Model: Sig Sauer Spartan & Max Michel 1911
Materials: Mostly all metal build.
Weight: 2.06 pounds (934 Grams).
Barrel: 5 inches - Non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Blowback single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 16 round stick magazine.
Max FPS: 410.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Sig 1911 CO2 blowback pistols is excellent! juts like a real 1911 it is single action only and both Sig Sauer 1911's have very short and very light trigger pulls. To make the shooting experience even more realistic you will need to engage the working back strap safety in order to shot these guns, again just like a real 1911.

Accuracy: I have not done my official Field Test Shooting Video for the these Sig Sauer CO2 Blowback 1911's but I did do a shooting field test for the Daisy Winchester Model 11 which these guns are built in design from. The Daisy Model 11 on a rather cold day shot around 360 fps so I am expecting better results from the new updated Sig Sauer Max Michal and Spartan especially in warmer shooting conditions. during my previous Daisy Model 11 testing I was also able to get around a 2 inch 10 shot grouping from a 30 foot shooting position.

Build Quality: Both of the Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel Blowback CO2 airguns are built really well, they feel solid in the hand and all the mechanical parts feel tight, the finish is also nice and does not show any signs of wearing. You will find metal parts pretty much everywhere except the magazines, even the safety, magazine release  and slide catch are metal, it's kind of too bad the magazine was also not metal?

Realism: Sig Sauer modeled the Spartan and Max Michel after their real steel version and overall they are very similar with the exception that neither of the real steel version have under barrel rails, you will also find adjustable sights on both of the real steel versions and of course proper full size magazines. Other than that both the Sig Sauer CO2 Blowback 1911/s look the part and have full Sig Sauer Licensing and branding,

Buy Sig Airguns in the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Lots of metal in this gun with good weight!

  • Good overall replica of the real steel 1911 Sig Sauer pistols.

  • Really nice single action trigger.

  • Full Sig Sauer markings and licensing.

  • Cam lever system for easy CO2 loading.

  • Working grip safety.

  • Can expect reasonably decent blowback feel.

  • Higher fps than the KWC 1911’s range.

  • White dot sights front and back.

  • Rail for accessories.

Cons:

  • Plastic stick magazine.

  • Rail would not be on the original Sig Sauer pistols.

  • Sights are pretty basic and none adjustable.

  • Would have liked a more recessed barrel.

  • CO2 Grip comes off pretty easily.

Comments:
I know that everyone seems to like airguns with full size drop out metal magazines and yes it does make the airgun look and feel more realistic but once the magazine is in the gun the experience for the most part is the same. Having a stick magazine in this case allows for a more efficient CO2 delivery which should increase power and shots per CO2, I know a lot of people complain about the low FPS of the KWC 1911's so if this is you then perhaps you then you may need to give up a full size mag for more power and shots per CO2? Other then the stick mag issue both the Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel are really nice CO2 Blowback Airguns and I am really hoping they perform well when I get to my field test shooting review shortly.

Sig Sauer ASP P320 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

The Sig Sauer ASP P320 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol is a really nice evolution to the already existing line of Sig Sauer ASP Pellet Pistols. The 30 round belt fed pellet magazine is what really sets it apart from the Sig ASP P250 and Sig ASP P226 which both share the traditional double sided 8 round rotary pellet magazines found in other CO2 pellet pistols like the Umarex PX4 and ASG CZ P-09 Duty.

The big question I had was how is the trigger going to feel and is a 30 round belt magazine going to be reliable? Will other aspects of the Sig Sauer ASP P320 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol function and perform like its rotary magazine brothers?

So I figured I would put the Sig Sauer ASP P320 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol up against both the Sig ASP P250 and P226 and see how they all faired against each other.

During my Chronograph feet per second shooting test I compared all three blowback pellet pistols shooting five rounds from each of them using a brand new CO2 and Sig Sauer 5.25 grain Match Ballistic Alloy Pellets. It was a close race with the Sig ASP P250 averaging 413 fps, the Sig ASP P226 just under with a 409 fps average and the Sig ASP P320 coming in a very close third at 405 fps. Only about 8 fps separating all of them!

Moving on to the target portion of my testing. As per my standard Field Test Shooting Reviews I setup my paper targets about 30 feet from my rested shooting position and since the ASP P250 and P226 both have 8 rounds per side rotary magazines I decided to shoot an 8 round grouping with all three Sig ASP pellet pistols. It was really close and perhaps one could say most of the variability was because of the human factor. All three CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistols shot about 2 inch groupings with perhaps one or two outliers, again most likely my fault :) I would say the Sig Sauer ASP P250 was perhaps the most accurate with the tightest of the three groups and also the most centered. The Sig Sauer ASP P226 and Sig Sauer ASP P320 where both a close second with both of them shooting just a tad left on target but pretty close to the center.

What about that Sig Sauer ASP P320 CO2 Blowback .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol trigger and belt fed magazine? The trigger actually felt great, much lighter than I was expecting and I did not have one pellet feed error during my entire testing. At the end of the day all three Sig ASP pellet guns performed about the same, but I have to say having 30 rounds at your disposal without having to reload or rotate the stick mag really makes the Sig ASP P320 stand out and perhaps make it the winner in a very close contest.

Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

2 Comments

Type: BB air pistol.
Distributer: Umarex.
Model: Beretta APX.
Materials: Metal slide polymer frame.
Weight: 1.47 pounds (667 grams).
Barrel: 4.17 inches, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, double action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 19-20 rounds.
FPS: 395.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a little different then that of the real steel APX. On the real steel APX there is actually a trigger safety and the actual gun uses a striker based system with a fairly short reset and take-up. On the replica Airgun version the tiger does not have a built in safety and the reset and take-up are much longer (full length). I have read that both the real steal and BB versions of the APX both have about 6 pounds trigger pulls but I personally felt like the Airgun version was heavier than that, perhaps because of the  long pull. Over all the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol trigger is acceptable but not my favorite.

Accuracy: I have not shot the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol so far but based on similar blowback stick magazine BB air pistols from Umarex with around 400 fps performance, I know that it will have a medium blowback feel and should shoot pretty close to the claimed 395 fps. I also expect at least a 2 inch or smaller 10 shot grouping from 30 feet back.

Build Quality: Very good, the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol feels heavier than 1.5 pounds in the hand, perhaps because it is a more compact gun. The metal slide, metal stick mag and internal metal parts all help to balance off the polymer frame nicely.  Fit and finish is also good.

Realism: The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol overal is a really close replica to the real steel APX other than the added safety and missing trigger safety. The added safety does not stand out too much and does serve a purpose while the missing trigger safety could of at least been there for show if not an actual working safety. Other than that the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is very close to the Beretta APX with its full licensing, open ejection port, recessed barrel working slide catch release and blowback operation.
Available at the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Great weight and feel to it, build quality seems really good.
  • Really nice replica of the original Beretta APX in most ways.
  • Working slide catch and release.
  • Fully Beretta licensed.
  • Easy to see white dot sights front and back.
  • Recessed barrel and open ejection port for added realism.
  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.
  • Stick magazine but plate gives the elusion of a full size magazine and covers the CO2 tab.
  • Warning instruction are nice and discreet!

Cons:

  • Trigger is a bit long and perhaps heavier than the real steel APX trigger. It also does not have the trigger safety.
  • Has a stick magazine rather than a full size magazine.
  • Sights are non-adjustable which is common with airguns like this one.

Comments:

It's always nice to get another airgun replica for fans of that particular real steel gun so they have a low cost shooting option they can use in a lot more locations for some safe trigger time. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a great addition for sure and it's also nice that it is somewhat Glock like in looks and operation for those Glock fans out there that are having a tuff time locating a Glock airgun replica :) Other than my trigger beef, I really like the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. I hope it performs as good as it looks when  I do my field test shooting video in a bit.

Cybergun Swiss Arms SA 1911 and SA 92 Stainless CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Update Video

No Comments

I know this video is going to excite many of you if you already like the basic KWC 1911 and PT92, also known as the Tanfoglio Witness, GSG 92 and many other almost exactly the same guns from Swiss Arms, Gletcher, Cybergun and even Umarex and Crosman.

There are tons of these KWC CO2 Blowback BB Pistols and Airsoft Pistols on the market in various versions with all kinds of different licensing on them and I have seen lots of custom modification photos from my viewers showing me how thy have striped and polished their KWC blowback Air Pistols and even added real wood grips.

That's why I think it's super cool that now you can get your already blinged out and polished Cybergun/KWC 1911 or PT92 and realy for not a lot more money at the end of the day! The real problems is availability since these stainless versions are in high demand.

So what are we looking at in this video? I have two Cybergun/KWC 1911's one is a basic 1911 A1 with a parkerized and stainless frame and slide, you also have a real wood look grip (Looks like wood but is not actually wood...) The basic Swiss Arms 1911 has been called the SA 1911 Seventies Stainless Pistol while the more tactical Swiss Arms SA 1911 is rightfully called the SA 1911 Tactical Rail System since it has a lot more tactical features like a rail, ambidextrous safety, white dot sights, and tactical trigger and hammer.

The Swiss Arms SA 92 Stainless which is essentially very similar to the GSG 92 or KWC PT92  again offers a parkerized and stainless frame and slide with the simulated wood grips.

Make sure to watch my update video for these three very attractive Swiss Arms CO2 Blowback BB Pistols from Cybergun/KWC and if you're interested in purchasing one you like then see if we have them in stock in our Canada Replica Airguns Store.
