In this video I do get in nice and close with the camera so you can see how awesome the Weathered finish and Leather Sling look. Just keep in mind you will pay a bit more of a premium for the Umarex Legends MP 40 Weathered version.
Starting with finding out the raw real world power for the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol, I performed the Chronograph Test using my CaldwellBallistic Precision Chronograph and put 6 shots through it using a brand new 12 gram CO2 along with .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB’s. I was able to average 350 fps which is pretty decent considering it was only around 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit). In warmer summer conditions I am sure we would easily reach around 360-370+fps.
Next up I placed a paper target on my ammo trap 30 feet down range and shot off 10 steady paced rounds to see what kind of grouping I could get from the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol. There is always going to be a bit of human factor involved since my Airguns are not braced in a vice or hold of any kind other than my two handed rested grip. (Sandbag upfront, sitting on a stool in the back). I was pleased to see a roughly 3 inch grouping on the target. There was one BB that did shoot a little bit higher then the rest of the grouping otherwise it would have been closer to a 2 inch grouping. I di notice that I was shooting a bit under the bullseye but this could are easily rectified by adjusting the hope slightly to add some more backspin to the Airsoft BB.
All in all I really like the KJWorks KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol, it looks great, is well built, is not going to come in super heavy and seems to perform very well in terms of power and accuracy. I have always been a fan of the 1911 pistol and I like that KJWORKS didn’t deviate too much form the original A1 look and feel with this slightly more tactical version. It still looks and feels like a classic 1911 but is upgraded enough to keep the weight down while adding in a double stack styled magazine with more overall tactical features.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is what you would expect from a true 1911 single action only trigger, it has very little take up with a smooth crisp and light release to it The grip safety like a real 1911 also works on the KJWORKS KP-08 so it will needed to be engage in order for the trigger to function.
Accuracy: I have not shot the KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol so far but plan to do so this week so I can have my Full Field Test Shooting Video Review for you ASAP. Keep posted as I this is next on my list!
Build Quality: I have always been extremely impressed with the build quality of all the KJWORKS Airsoft guns to date. The fit and finish is the best around compared with any of my airguns including my 4.5mm steel BB shooters. I would say KJWORKS and KWA Airsoft Guns are comparable in terms of build quality, fit and finish so it’s great we now offer both brands for you to choose from.
Realism: The KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is a replica of a High Capacity styled tactical 1911 45 Auto and is a great looking and functioning replica. You will not find actual Colt or other manufacturer licensing other than KJWORKS on this pistol and the CO2 magazine does stick out a bit to accommodate the 12 gram CO2 but other than that this Airsoft pistol looks and works near exactly like a real 1911 tactical 45 semi auto and is fully field strip-able. I really like the updated more tactical add ons like the tactical rail, machined trigger and hammer, white dot adjustable sights, and much lighter polymer frame that helps keep the overall gun weight down to around 2 pounds.
Metal parts where you need them, polymer frame to keep it lighter weight.
Heavy Full blowback operation.
Excellent fit and finish as always with KJWorks pistols.
High capacity full size drop out magazine that holds 28 rounds.
Versatile magazine options, also works with Marui Hi-Capa Magazines.
Easy to see white dot sights and adjustable for windage rear sight.
All working components like the real steel 1911.
Clean looking but still has that tactical quality about it.
Grips are wider than a typical single stack 1911, may not fit the hands of small shooters.
No ambidextrous safety, not a problem for right handed shooters but lefties would benefit from this.
The KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is KJWORKS first Airsoft pistol with a polymer frame. It’s also very versatile in that you can use KJWORKS KP-05 magazines and even High-Capa Marui Mags if you won them. The red internal gas tube allows you to use pretty much any type of magazine too which means Green gas, propane and CO2 are all good to go with the KJWORKS KP-08 CO2 Airsoft Pistol! The polymer frame really helps keep what would normally be a rather heavy Airsoft pistol a bit bit more light weigth and field friendly but you still have all the perks of a High-Capa 1911 so it’s a win win for me.
In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I compare the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols head to head and side by side to see how these two very similar Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Replicas perform. They both cost about the same, are built with similar quality and look a lot alike but what I really wanted to know is how do they shoot!
First off I tested out the power of both Airsoft Guns shooting 5 consistent .20 gram Airsoft BB’s from each gun through my Chronograph. Keep in mind I was using a full magazine of propane gas in the KWA M226-LE and a brand new 12 gram CO2 in the KJWorks KJ1060 (KP-01). As CO2 is know to have more power than green gas I was expecting a bit more pop out of the KJWorks KJ1060 which I did get. The temperature in my indoor Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range was 18 degree Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit) so not too cold or too hot. The KWA M226-LE averaged right around 320 fps while the KJWorks KJ1060 averaged 350 fps.
Moving on to my accuracy portion of the test for the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols. I placed fresh paper targets 30 feet down range for each Airsoft pistol and put 10 rounds into each target shooting from a rested seated position. I did not adjust the hop-up or sights for either Airsoft Pistol prior to this test to see how close to the bullseye they would get out of the box. First up was the KWA M226-LE and it performed nicely for me shooting close to the bullseye, just a little bit low but getting around a 3.5 inch 10 round group. I then followed up with the KJWorks KJ1060 (HP-01) and also shot fairly near the Bullseye out of the box but the grouping opened up just a bit resulting in a 4.5 inch 10 round group. Still respectable for a close Airsoft quarters sidearm.
At the end of the day, the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols came out pretty close to each other in this head to head Filed Test Shooting Comparison Review. One shot a little bit harder while the other one was a little bit more accurate but neither was a standout in either category. I guess you’re going to have to flip a coin deciding on which one of these two very well made Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols you’re going to choose but either way you will be getting a winner here.
Type: 6mm Plastic BB Airsoft Pistols. Manufacturer:KWA & KJWorks Model:KWA M226-LE - KJWorks KJ1060 (Sigt Sauer P226) Materials: Metal slide & frame. Weight: About 2.5 pounds. Barrel: Metalnon-rifled smooth bore. Propulsion: Green Gas - 12 Gram CO2. Action: Single and double action. Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 24-25 rounds. FPS: 350-400 fps
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on both the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols is very similar, they both shoot in single and double action and both actions are fairly light on the finger. I found the KWA M226-LE had a bit lighter double action trigger while the KJWorks KJ1060 seemed lighter when shooting in single action. This is all based on simply dry firing both guns to see who the triggers felt in both their single and double actions.
Accuracy: So far I have not shot either Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistol but plan to get to my Field Test Shooting Review very soon. I will be testing both Airsoft Guns out head to head to see how each performs against each other for power and accuracy.
Build Quality: The build quality for the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols is excellent. Both KWA and KJWorks make exception quality Airguns so which ever one you pick will be a good choice here. Both Airsoft Sig Sauer P226 Pistols are all metal full Blowback ultra realistic Airguns It may just come down to a few small differences. Overall I liked the fit and finish on the KWA M226-LE just a little bit more but it was very close.
Realism: In terms of realism it does not get any more realistic than this. You are going to find that the KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols mimic a real Sig Sauer P226 very closely with working parts as you would find them in the real steel version. The only tell tale sign on the KWA M226-LE is the orange tip which by they ways was not what we ordered so in future versions they will not have orange tips. The KJWorks KJ1060 comes with a CO2 magazine which is a bit elongated from the pistol grip but there are shorter Green Gas magazines for this gun available.
I like that both guns have full blowback operation, full size drop out magazines, easy to use white dot sights.
Working de-cockers and true to form single and double action triggers.
I like the finish on the KWA M226-LE, it’s smoother and has stamped in branding on the slide and frame.
I like the Grips on the KWA M226-LE, more ergonomic and comfortable.
Fit and overall quality feels just a little bit better on the KWA M226-LE.
I like the look of the flush green gas magazine on the KWA M226-LE.
I like the additional power the CO2 Magazine will give the KJWorks KJ1060.
I like that the KJWorks KJ1060 doe snot have an orange tip.
I like the the KJWorks KJ1060 comes with a speed loader.
What I dislike about each gun:
I don’t like that either gun doe snot have adjustable sights.
I don’t like the orange tip on the KWA M226-LE.
I don’t like the way the extended CO2 mag looks on the KJWorks KJ1060
Comments: No matter which of these two awesome Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols you may choose, you are going to love it. I am a big Sig Sauer fan and so it makes sense for me to own something like this so I can shoot it any time I want without having to go to the actual gun range and spend a boat load of money firing off real 9mm ammo. You really do get a very realistic experience shooting these ultra realistic Airsoft Pistols. They are the same size and weight, all the controls work the same, the triggers have the same weigth and feel to them, the blowback action simulates the recoil. The only difference is the cost to shoot, less recoil feel obviously and the fact that most people can shoot them safely and quality in the privacy of their own back yards.
My YouTube Table Top Comparison Review of the KWA M226-LE & KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistols:
Type: Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex. Model:HK VPN. Materials: Metal & Polymer. Weight: 1.42 pounds (644 grams). Barrel: 4.13 inches, metal non-rifled. Propulsion: CO2 x 1. Action: Semi auto single and double action trigger. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 18 round drop out full size metal magazine. FPS: Claimed 350.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is fairly decent. When the slide cycles it sets the internal striker ready for single action shooting but there is a first stage of the trigger that moves the CO2 nozzle in the magazine forward pushing a BB into the breech area of the barrel while also sealing off the magazine into the barrel allowing for more effect CO2 usage and extra power. This movement of the magazine nozzle does add a slight bit of friction to the first stage of the trigger pull but not a lot. Keep in mind the trigger pull is a bit longer than most single action triggers to account for this.
Build Quality: TheUmarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a well made gun which we have come to expect from Umarex. The Umarex HK VP9 is made of metal and polymer similar to the real steel version with a metal slide and polymer frame. You will find more metal parts in the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol as in the slide catch release, magazine ejector, barrel, magazine and also several internal parts. Fit and finish is good, I had no issues shooting the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol when I tested it out.
Realism: The Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a very close copy of the real steel H&K VP9 9mm pistol, you will even find HK licensing throughout the gun. Some details that make the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol very believable are the blowback action, full size drop out metal magazine, the cut out ejection port with 9mm markings on it, the recessed barrel, a working slide catch release and trigger safety. One giveaway that the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is not the real deal is the safety switch on the right hand side of the frame. It is fairly small so it does not catch the eye to easily. Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.
Nice Crisp blowback action.
Full size drop out all metal magazine.
Metal parts where where you would expect them to be: Slide, magazine, barrel, slide catch/release, magazine ejector and of course several internal parts.
Fairly accurate looking replica of the original HK VP9.
HK Licensed via Umarex.
White dot sights easy to sight in your target on most backgrounds.
Working trigger safety.
Rail for accessories like lasers and tac lights.
Warning instructions are nice and discreet!
Well priced for what you get.
Not a fan a of the clamshell packaging, makes the gun seem cheap even before you actually hold and feel it.
Sights are none adjustable.
Did not perform great in my accuracy test, a bit spread out.
The Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol reminds me a lot of the ISSC M22 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in terms of how it operates, they both have that same full size dop out metal magazine that has that moving nozzle for more efficient CO2 usage. Both BB guns also both have that “half” or reduced cycle blowback operation which again probably increases CO2 efficiency and power. The Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol looks and feels great in the hand and has a nice snappy blowback operation with easy to use sights and a smooth trigger. I just wish I was able to get a little bit tighter grouping during my field test shooting video but sometimes it’s just me, sometimes it can just be that specific gun. Let me know how yours performs for you?
In this Field test Shooting Video of the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle I test out its velocity in feet per second and also what kind of accuracy I can get shooting at a paper target 30 feet away from a rested seated position with a sand bag up front.
Starting with the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle’s power I first placed 5 shots through my Chronograph using a brand new 12 gram CO2 and RWS 5.1 grain zinc coated steel BB’s. The lowest fps shot was 334 and the highest was 363 fps, averaging 344 for the 5 shots. Not all that fast for a CO2 BB rifle but keep in mind the inner barrel is the same length as the shorter barreled Gletcher M1891 which actually shot a m much higher average fps of 428. I was shooting the Gletcher M1891 on a much warmer day which will effect velocity with CO2 airguns but by nearly 100fps? Seems a little bit off?
Next I cleared my shooting bench and setup a fresh paper target 30 feet back and proceeded to see what kind of grouping I could get with the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle. I did not sight the gun in so I was only really interested in how close the BB’s would place together, not so much if I could hti bulls eyes. Perhaps I should have made sure I was close to the bulls eye since out of the box I was noticeably shooting low and to the left. It is really easy to adjust the sights to shoot higher but not so much for windage. That said I got about a 4 inch 10 shot grouping shooting the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle. Again compared to the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off little brother version the Gletcher M1944 didn’t perform as well in this test since I was able to get closer to a 2 inch grouping with the Gletcher M1891 in my earlier testing.
So what did I learn today? Maybe bigger is not always better? There are all sorts of things to consider when performing these test. Temperature, CO2 and BB’s being used but probably a lot of times it’s just me not exactly on my game that day. For me the main reason why I would buy the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle is not as much for how it shoots but more because where else can you get a historic bolt action BB rifle like this. And for some people that may be the only version they may are able to buy where they are located or if they don’t want the hassle of getting a firearms license.
Let’s get right into it. I placed 6 shots through my Chronograph and averaged 312 fps which was lower than what AW Custom claims at 370 fps. It was not super warm in the Sea Can since it is October and the weather is getting colder by the day, but I do keep it relatively heated and it was around 15-16 degrees Celsius or 61 degrees Fahrenheit. I was also using a brand new 12 gram CO2 cartridge along with 5.1 grain RWS zinc coated steel BB’s.
For my accuracy test I placed a brand new paper target up 30 feet down range and put 10 shots into it (well sort of) using a rested seated position with a sandbag up front. I have to be honest about the results, I was very disappointed in the accuracy of the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. It was literally one of the worse I have seen in terms of getting BB’s to place well in a 10 shot grouping. Most CO2 Blowback BB gun will at least get a 4 inch grouping if not even a 2 inch grouping on a good day but the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol just seemed to spray the ammo all over, 2 shots did not even hit the paper and the rest where literally all spread out on it. I would guess that I got around an 10-12 inch grouping which at 30 feet is not good at all?
My guess is that the barrel is perhaps too large? Everything else about the gun is really great. It’s made very well and looks awesome, fps performcaen is about what I would expect from a full blowback CO2 BB gun so that is fine. But when it comes to accuracy the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol just fails completely. I may try using another brand of BB’s but I am not expecting to get a much better result…
In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I test out the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in my Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Range. It’s getting a bit colder now that’s it’s mid October here in Canada BC but inside the Sea Can I keep things at least around 15-16 degrees Celsius (61 degrees Fahrenheit) while testing out my airguns. Temperature aside the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting range is dry and well light, perfect for multi-camera video recording.
As always I put 5 shots through my Chronograph to see what kind of real world velocity I can get using my test airguns which in this case was the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. Now Umarex claims 350 fps and I averaged 325, this is pretty close keeping in mind the temperature was not all that warm so I expect higher velocity from the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in warmer conditions. I did use a brand new CO2 along with RWS. 5.1 grain zinc coated steel BB’s.
In terms of accuracy I was a little bit let down by the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol getting over a 4-5 inch grouping shooting 10 shots on my paper target 30 feet away. My rested shooting position (Sand bag up front seated in the rear) usually allows for at least a 2-3 inch groupings for most CO2 BB pistols at this distance. I’m not sure why the shoots where so spread out, it was almost like I got two operate tighter groupings from my 10 shots?
Even with the somewhat poor accuracy the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a nice overall airgun, with a nice smooth Double Action Only trigger and solid blowback action recoil feel. The metal slide and all metal full size drop out metal magazine gives the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol a nice balance to it and good weight. Stay tuned for my Table Top Review coming soon.
Type: Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. Manufacturer: Distributed by AW Custom. Model:Black Ace AG-HX2003. Materials: Metal & Polymer. Weight: 2.36 pounds (1070 grams). Barrel: 4.33 inches, metal non-rifled. Propulsion: CO2 x 1. Action: Semi auto single action only trigger. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 26 round drop out full metal magazine. FPS: Claimed 375.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is typical of a 1911 single action only trigger, there is virtually no take-up at all and the release is supper light and crips. There really is no trigger reset to speak of making it a really fast action shooter.
Build Quality: TheAW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is rather well made with a full metal slide and upper metal receiver. It feels great in the hand with its 2.36 pound weight and beefy grips. The fit and finish is bang on and I really like the matt finish that does not seem to be earring at all in the high spots.
Out of the box already upgraded internally and externally.
Mostly metal gun, has great weight and feel to it.
Full blowback operation along with a full size drop out metal magazine.
Claimed 375 fps is good for a full blowback (Airsoft) styled BB gun.
Nice fiber optic adjustable sights and included plate for mounting a red dot sight.
Excellent fit and finish.
Flared magwell and textured grips assure a good grip.
Fairly light double action trigger.
Warning instructions on slide are very discreet!
Overall a great looking custom 1911!
A bit hard to get right now at least here in Canada.
Have to remove slide to adjust windage on rear sig
The AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a really nice gun all around and one of the few airguns that comes out of the box already upgraded and modified with enhanced features that truly improve the comfort, performance and efficiency of the gun as well as cosmetic upgrades for looks. Some key features that stand out for me are the fiber optic adjustable sights, Skeletonize trigger and hammer, textured pistol grips and flared magwell and of course the vented barrel/slide. Hopefully we can get some into our Replica Airguns Online Store in the near future…
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant is single action only, the bolt cycle does most of the work setting up the loading of a BB into the chamber and pre-cocking the bolt spring. The take up is minimal and the release is about medium to light weight. The bolt snaps forward firmly and with a nice clanking sound, you can even feel the weight of it as it moves forward.
Accuracy: I have not shot the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle yet but have had the opportunity to shoot the M1891 Sawn Off version. I had mixed result with the Gletcher M1891 BB Rifle since you can not shoulder the gun making it a bit unsteady while it waves around out in front of you as you aim it. When shooting it rested I was able to get much better results shooting a fairly tight 1.5 inch 10 shot grouping in my Sea Can Airgun Range. By the way my velocity testing on the Gletcher M1891 BB Rifle resulted in an average of 430 fps.
Build Quality: The Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle is really well made, you can tell by it's robust weight and how solid the action feels when you draw the bolt back and release it the first time. Everything that would be metal on the real Mosin Nagant is metal on the Gletcher M1944 including the full size dropout magazine that holds both the BB's and CO2. Yes the stock is imitation wood but it looks very close to real wood and will fool most people until very close inspection. The overall finish on the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle looks great.
Realism: I've never actually put my hands on a real steel Mosin Nagant Rifle but from the photos I viewed online, the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle really accurate in terms of being a BB replica. Of course the magazine has been adapted to fit CO2 and BB's but once placed in the gun it is nearly impossible to tell it from a real Mosin Nagant. The weight of this rifle (8.2 pounds) gives it the feeling of genuineness. I have read online that a real Mosin Nagant stock can be adapted to fit the Gletcher M1944 so that would indicate that it is fairly true in size and construction to a real Mosin Nagant Rifle.
Very Unique BB gun.
A piece of history you can shoot in your back yard.
Mostly all metal gun.
Nice heavy 8.2 pound weight to it.
Adjustable rear sight, at least for elevation.
Nice single action trigger.
Bolt action feels great and has a firm release.
Full size drop out metal magazine that holds both the BB's and the CO2.
More fps than claimed and decent accuracy, I expect to get lots of shots out of a single CO2 because of the magazine design.
Imitation wood is very believable.
Comes with sling.
Breaks down similarly to the real steel version, so maybe able to upgrade parts like the stock with a little bit of work.
Stock is plastic but looks good considering.
No real way to adjust windage and the rear sight does wiggle a bit from side to side which could throw off the aim.
Bayonet may scratch the stock a bit?
Price point may make it out of range for some buyers?
The Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle is a great option for anyone looking for a historic bolt action Rifle but in a BB version. It for sure looks and acts the part but in a much quieter and backyard friendly version. Sure yo can get the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off version ofr about half price but to really get the full Mosin Nagant experience you are going to want to have the larger full size Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle, no two ways around it. Being abel to shoulder the gun makes it way more natural and easier to shoot.
My YouTube Table Top Video of the Gletcher M1944 CO2 Replica BB Rifle:
There has been some confusion when it comes to the KWC made Mini UZI regarding semi and full auto abilities and also when it comes to build materials. But before we get into that if you have one of these Mini UZI Blowback BB or Airsoft guns then most likely yours is made by KWC even if it was distributed through RWS, Umarex, Gletcher, Cybergun or some other company. When it comes to the build materials used they are all made by KWC so they are all built the same with plastic and metal in the same places.
Let’s first talk about why some of these Mini UZI’s only come in semi auto with the Full auto selection not available out of the box. This is most likely because in some countries a full auto BB and/or Airsoft gun can be illegal so to play it safe many airguns that are originally made to shoot in both semi and full auto are modified to only shoot full auto. This is the case with most of the companies that redistribute the KWC Mini UZI under their own brand name. That said if you buy the KWC Mini UZI in either 4.5.mm Steel BB or 6mm Plastic Airsoft from our Replica Airguns Canada or US Online Stores, you will be getting a full auto ready out of the box airgun!
When it comes to build materials the KWC Mini UZI is often described on websites as being full metal which is close but not entirely true. It is accepted that most full metal airguns will have plastic grips but the KWC Mini UZI also has a plastic shroud around the main receiver that is am all in one piece that makes o=up the front and back sights. This might lead you to think that the gun is mainly plastic which is far from the case since all other parts like the receiver block, bolt, top plate, barrel, rear stock, trigger and magazine are metal. This give the KWC Mini UZI its sold 4.8 pound weight. The heavy metal internal bolt really makes this blowback airgun rock when you shoot it simulating very close recoil action to a 22LR. The KWC Mini UZI for sure has the most blowback recoil out there.
If you are looking for the most bad ass and action packed full auto BB or Airsoft Gun then I would highly suggest you consider getting one of these KWC Mini UZI’s. Just be sure to have lots of CO2 and BB’s on hand because you will go through both like crazy…
Right off the bat if you’re looking for a replica Airgun that has a lot of blowback recoil, a great trigger and shoots really well then there is no need to read the rest of this Field Test Shooting Video Review since the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol checks off all of these boxes. If you want to find out how it performed for me then hang around and read the rest of my Review for the details…
Starting off with power otherwise know as velocity, I performed the same old reliable test I always do by shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph and then averaging them out for my real world feet per second performance. I was using a brand new 12 gram CO2 along with 5.1 grain RWS 4.5mm Steel BB’s and the temperature was right around 21 degrees Celsius or 70 degrees Fahrenheit, so not cold or hot. On the box or should I say plastic clam shell, Umarex claims the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol will get up to 325 fps and this is pretty close since I averaged 328 with my 5 shots, the highest being 331 and the lowest at 225.
Next up was my accuracy test for the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol, this is the part of my Shooting Field Test I enjoy the most! I placed a fresh target on my ammo trap 30 feet down range and got settled in 30 feet back using a semi rested position (Sand bag up front and seated in the back). I proceeded to put 10 consecutive shots into my paper target and got a nice grouping from my Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol about 2 inches in total fairly centered down the middle but a little bit low. Since the built in Hop-up is not adjustable you will have to aim a little bit over your target at least at 30 feet out, perhaps not shooting up a little bit closer in distance.
Overall the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is really great to shoot, the blowback action has I would say as much if not more to it than any of the airguns I have tested to date, I love the overall realism with it’s full size drop out metal magazine, full cycle blowback and pretty much every part on it works like the real steal version, so just an overall great trainer and must have if you own a real steel HK USP. And if you don’t own any version of the HK USP then I recommend picking up this one for sure!
Did the Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol out shoot the previous Umarex Walther PPS Blowback CO2 BB? The new Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol has a claimed fps of 340 which is not super fast but keep in mind it is a very short barreled blowback BB pistol. Like the original Umarex Walther PPS during my Chronograph velocity testing my sample model averaged about 10fps faster with a 5 shot average of 352 fps. Not bad at all for such a short barreled BB pistol. I know some people think you need 400 plus fps in an airgun but the reality is anything even close to 300 fps is moving pretty fast and can still do a lot of damage to pop cans and skin.
When it came to accuracy I found my Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol shot a little bit to the left, one round even missed the paper target so it was for sure pulling to the left and I know it was not me. Unfortunately the sights are non adjustable which is pretty normal for most BB pistols so if yours pulls in one direction or the other than you will need to adjust your aim point to accommodate it. My 10 shot grouping was similar to the standard Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol getting all 10 shots within 3.5 inches
I found the blowback on the Walther PPS M2 CO2 BB Pistol nice and snappy with enough recoil feel to make it fun to shoot. The trigger pull is slightly long but pretty smooth even when it is picking up a BB and placing it in the chamber. The white dot sights are nice and easy to see and overall the Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is a great compact action shooter perfect for taking out pop cans from 20-30 feet!
Type: Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex. Model:Walther PPS M2. Materials: Metal & Polymer. Weight: 1.25 pounds (567 grams). Barrel: 3.34 inches, metal non-rifled. Propulsion: CO2 x 1. Action: Semi auto single action only trigger. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 18 round drop out metal stick magazine. FPS: Claimed 340.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is single action only so you will need to rack the slide before you can fire off the first shot. The trigger reset does not change even when cocked so there is a fair amount of take-up but it is very light right up until the release where you then feel the actual trigger pull. The release weight is fairly light.
Build Quality: TheUmarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is not super heavy but because of its small size it does feel solid in the hand. Fit and finish are both good and you will find metal parts in all the right places like the slide, trigger, barrel, magazine, slide catch release and lost of other metal parts internally.
Realism: The Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is a really good replica when compared to the real steel version. For the most part it is really hard to tell them apart just looking at them. One difference is the trigger, you will find a trigger safety on the real steel version versus no trigger safety on the BB firing airgun. I am not talking about the cross bolt safety here as this is also unique to the Airgun version and not on the real still pistol. Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.
A lot like the previous version PPS but more modern looking with smoother edges.
Nice overall believable replica of the real steal Walther PPS.
Fully Walther licensed via Umarex.
Easy to use and see white dot sights front and back.
Great small size weight and feel to it.
Working slide catch and release locks back after last shot.
Fit and finish is good.
Smart built in Allen key/spring system.
Stick mag but the butt plate hides the CO2 screw nicely.
Recessed barrel looks the part.
Expect decent blowback feel since it has a heavier slide spring than the previous PPS and that version even had decent blowback recoil for its size.
Not field strip-able.
Only partial blowback action with stick magazine.
Comes in clam shall packaging and has ugly warning instructions on slide.
I like the format of these small compact conceal cary gun like the ASG Bersa BP9CC, of course the first generation Umarex Walther PPS Blowback and now the new Umarex Walther PPS M2. Small sized compact guns like the Umarex Walther PPS M2 here in Canada are considered Prohibited making them off limits for most Canadians even with valid Restricted handgun licenses so the BB firing version many be as close as you are going to get to owning a prohibited pistol here in Canada. I look forward to putting the Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol though its paces when I do my official Field Test Shooting video here in the Airgun Sea Can Shooting Range.
Type: Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex. Model:HK USP. Materials: Metal & Polymer. Weight: 2.15 pounds (975 grams). Barrel: 4 inches, metal non-rifled. Propulsion: CO2 x 1. Action: Semi auto single and double action trigger. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 16 round drop out full size metal magazine. FPS: Claimed 325.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol feel good in both single and double action modes. Single action has a reduced reset with very little take-up before it release, the trigger weigth in single action is fairly light. In double action the trigger pull starts out a bit longer and heavier but then lightens up just before it releases. This will only be for the first shot since follow up shots will be single action afterwards.
Build Quality: TheUmarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol looks to be really well made. It's super solid at 2.25 pounds with a nice balance since the slide and magazine are both full metal. There is virtually no slide play but I am noticing just a little bit of paint wear around some of the high spots and in the breach area. This is common with KWC Airguns which may be the actual manufacturer of this Air Pistol, either KWC or VFC, I'm not sure?
Full blowback action with full size drop out metal magazine, what we all love to see!
Fully field strippable.
Metal parts where where you would find them on the real steal HK USP.
Very accurate replica of the original HK USP.
HK Licensed via Umarex.
White dot sights easy to sight in your target.
Single and double action trigger.
Rail for accessories.
Not a big fan a of the clamshell packaging, makes the gun seem cheap even before you actually hold and feel it.
Sights are none adjustable.
Warning writing on the right side of slide is a bit obvious.
I really didn't mind the previous non-blowback CO2 BB version of the HK USP as it had a full size metal magazine and metal slide making it feel great in the hand while still looking the part. That said having a full blowback version with a true single action trigger makes this the obvious choice for me. I'm really looking forward to shooting my Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol and seeing what kind of fps velocity and accuracy we get from it in the Sea Can!
I do have to say I really like the new fully licensed Umarex HK USP Blowback version, Umarex has had their non blowback HK USP out for a long time but it is pretty basic with no blowback or working slide but it does look the part and shoots pretty good. The new Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol has everything we like in a replica Airgun: Full blowback operation, a full sized all metal drop out magazine that holds the CO2 and Steel BB's. Metal parts where you would expect them like the slide, hammer, trigger, magazine release, magazine, slide catch release and even the removable sights. Of course there are lots internal metal parts too like the barrel, springs and pins.
Low cost CO2 BB guns are not really known for their power and accuracy but sometimes they can actually test out pretty decent. I don;t expect a replica action shooter to be the best shooter but as long as it can get a relatively small grouping and pump out 4.5mm Steel BB's over 400 fps then that's good enough for me, at least with a non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol.
Starting off with my velocity test using my newly acquired Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph, I was able to get a little higher then the 410 factory claimed fps for the Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol with an average of 423 fps. This was with a slightly used (A couple of magazines shot already) but fully warmed up CO2. I was shooting in about room temperature settings so not too warm and not too cold.
Next I placed 10 shots with my Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol from 30 feet down range using my standard seated and rested shooting position and shot about a 1-1.5 inch 10 shot group with only one shot coming out a bit extending the range to the full 1.5 inches. The Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol did seem to shoot a little bit high and to the left but not by very much and perhaps it was a little bit because of the shooter?
I think the low cost Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol is a great choice for anyone looking for a licensed Glock BB pistol to get some trigger time with for pennies a shot and without having to always go to a gun range to shoot. The Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol feels and holds pretty much the same as a real Glock 19 and even has a similar trigger feel, maybe not 100% but in the ball park. Sure you will not get that simulated recoil since there is no blowback but you do get a lot of shots per CO2 and more power than most CO2 Blowback pistols.
I finally got the chance to do my first official Field Test Shooting Video Review using the Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph and like my Test video everything went really well. I was a little bit scared since my first round through it shooting the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 was a "no read" but then the following 5 shots where all good. I think my shot placement was just a tad off on the first shot as I adjusted my aim a bit for the tore 5 shots.
So getting to the results of the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Air Rifle... I was using a somewhat used set of 12 gram CO2 cartridges that I had previously shot a couple of magazine through shooting in a bit of semi auto and full auto so I would assume I had at least half of, if not a bit more of my CO2 left in them. The Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 was also fully warmed up and it had been a day since I shot it last which lets the CO2 and the gun warm up and pretty much perform as if it was using new CO2 for the most part.
Moving on to my accuracy testing. I would like to note I was using a Red/Green dot scope which I think is a great add on for any action shooting air rifle. Shooting with the included open iron sights may not have given us a little bit different results but I don't think by too much. My first grouping was with 10 shots all in semi auto shooting mode and this resulted in a nice very close to 1 inch grouping with 8 out of the 10 shots all within about a 3/4 inch group. I then adjusted my sector switch to the much more fun full auto mode for the 15 remaining 4.5 mm Steel BB's and setup again 30 feet away. I then let her rip releasing all 15 rounds till the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 bolt locked back and to be honest I was fairly surprised at how tight my 15 round full auto group was. It only spread out to about 2 inches with not too much vertical drop so velocity remained pretty consistent which was nice to see.
All in all you really can not go wrong with the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4, it's got more than enough velocity at right around 400 fps which is great for a blowback action shooter still providing some nice accuracy not only in semi auto but also full auto shooting modes. And it has got to be the coolest looking and functioning 4.5mm Blowback BB M4 out there right now.
This test of the DJI Spark Mini Drone was to make sure I could use it in the way I intended for it when I am outdoors and want to get that nice higher up flowing camera angel you can only get form a drone.. The method I use in this video doesn't even require a remote control or smartphone and I can have it take off right out of my hand.
I then use hand gestures to control the DJI Spark Drone to do things like: Place the drone in the right starting location, make the DJI Spark start recording video, have the Spark zoom up and out from me for an "eye in the sky" aerial follow me mode and then of course when I am finished what I want it to record have the DJI Sparkreturn to me and land again on my hand. Again all of this without even taking the remote out of the box or even using a smartphone to control the DJI Spark Mini Drone!
Watch me test out the DJI Spark Mini Drone in my backyard while I shoot some of my Airguns at miscellaneous targets while I walk around and have the DJI Spark follow me while recording video.
