KWA M226-LE and KJWorks KJ1060 Sig Sauer P226 Airsoft Pistol Comparison Review

No Comments

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: Metal non-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.

Available in the: Replica Airguns Store

What I like about out each gun:

  • 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.

Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

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.

Accuracy: I did already perform my indoor Field Test Shooting Review of the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol and it performed OK. I averaged about 325 fps shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph. It was not super warm so I would expect higher fps closer to the 350 claimed in warmer conditions. In terms of accuracy, I was hoping to get closer to a 2-3 inch 10 shot grouping from 30 feet away but eneded up with more like a 4-5 inch grouping? I’m not sure if it was me or the gun on this day? Watch my Field Test Shooting Video Review of the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

Build Quality: The Umarex 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.

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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.

Comments:

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?

Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle Field Test Review

No Comments

I have a few other related videos you may want to also checkout for the Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle and it’s little brother the Gletcher M1891 Sawn Off version.

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.

KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KR7 Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifle Field Test Review

No Comments

If you haven’t already watched my Table Top Review Video for the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and LM4 KR7 Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles then make sure to do so for Specifications, Pros & Cons and close up video of both the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KR7 Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles.

In this Field Test Shooting Review I only test out the KWA LM4 RIS PTR GBB Airsoft Rifle since both the RIS and KR7 are virtually identical in terms of their build and internal components, the KR7 has a a slightly shorter barrel but both KWA Airsoft AR M4 Rifles should perform very similarly.

To begin this Field Test Shooting Review of the KWA LM4 RIS PTR GBB Airsoft Rifle I first place 5 shots through my Chronograph using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB’s and a full mag filled with propane gas. The rounds varied anywhere from around 330-360 fps but averaged a nice 345 fps which is perfect for most Airsoft games.

Next I placed a fresh paper target 30 feet away in my Indoor Sea Can Airgun Range. I then proceeded to shoot 10 shots in semi auto to see how accurate the KWA LM4 RIS PTR GBB Airsoft Rifle would perform for me. I am not a big fan of the aperture or peep sights found on most AR rifles, sure they work well for quick target acquisition but in terms of accuracy at least for me I find them hard to look through. Even so I was able to get about a 4 inch grouping with the KWA LM4 RIS PTR GBB Airsoft Rifle. I am pretty sure I could tighten this up with some more practice using these types of sights so user influence was involved here.

Of course I also had to place the KWA LM4 RIS PTR GBB Airsoft Rifle in Full Auto mode and do first a mag dump of the remaining 25 rounds and then I switched up the magazine for a fresh 40 rounder and did some shorter bursts again followed by a mag dump. The KWA LM4 RIS PTR GBB Airsoft Rifle performed flawlessly even in this somewhat cooler environment (17 degrees Celsius - 62 degrees Fahrenheit).

the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and LM4 KR7 Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles are fantastic performers, it’s hard to find consistent Gas Blowback Full Auto guns that can truly get through an entire mag without some sort of major cool down effecting their performance. In my testing even at the end of a full auto magazine the cycle rate was still high and there was no problem at all getting all 40 rounds out. If you want one of the highest quality and best performing Gas Blowback AR M4 styled Airsoft rifles then look no further!

AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

Yet another Field Test Shooting Review coming at you this week. In this Airgun Shooting Review I test the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in my Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting range to see what the velocity and accuracy performance are for it. Make sure to also checkout my Table Top Review for the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

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…

Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

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?

Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Right Side Angle.jpg

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.

AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

1 Comment

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.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. I was a bit surprised by the claimed fps of 375 since most full blowback CO2 BB airguns generally get around 330 fps. I hope to follow up this table top review with a field test shooting review very sons we can all find out the real world velocity and also see how accurate the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is.

Build Quality: The AW 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.

Realism: The AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol like many other metal full blowback Airguns is very realistic and hard to differentiate form a real steel 1911 of this kind. In terms of operation the AW Custom Black Ace HX2003 Hi-Capa CO2 Blowback BB Pistol functions just like a powder burned but with a lot less notice and less recoil but enough to rock your hands back and forth a bit while you shoot it.

Pros:

  • 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!

Cons:

  • A bit hard to get right now at least here in Canada.

  • Have to remove slide to adjust windage on rear sig

Comments:

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…

New Italian Addition to the Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range

No Comments

Since the new home for my Italian addition to the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Ranges is now situated in my gun range area, I figure you are going to see it beside my airgun target and start asking me about it. So I figured I would make a video all about it and let you know before hand. I do plan on moving the new addition to its permanent home in my garage but while I’m doing a bit of initial work on it and since my garage is in need of some reorganizing, it will have to stay in the sea can for now…

KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KR7 Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifle Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Airsoft Rifle (AR).
Manufacturer: KWA.
Model: LM4 RIS PTR & LM4 KR7 PTR
Materials: Metal & plastic.
Weight: 6.4 & 5.6 pounds.
Barrel: Type 3 hop-up.
Propulsion: GBB - Gas Blowback.
Action: Semi-full auto selectable SAO.
Ammunition Type: Airsoft 6mm Plastic BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 40 rounds.
FPS: 330+.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KWA LM4 KR7 PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles is exactly what you would expect on an AR style rifle. You are required to pull the charging handle back for the first shot which draws the bolt back and chambers a round. The Single action trigger has very little take up and a light crisp release. Of course if you select full auto mode all you need to do is hold down the trigger until the magazine is empty!

Accuracy: So far I have not field tested either the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KWA LM4 KR7 PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles but I did throw some green gas in one of the mags and fires off a bunch of semi and full auto shots in my Sea Can Airgun shooting range. You can expect a ton of felt blowback recoil and both semi and full auto modes performed perfectly for me with no problems unloading a full 40 rounds magazine and no slow down in the blowback action.

Build Quality: The KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KWA LM4 KR7 PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles are about as good as it gets in terms of build quality. They both have pretty much the same aluminum metal receivers and reenforced steal bolts. Fit and finishes is excellent everything just looks and feels great on these high end KWA Airsoft rifles.

Realism: The PTR in the name stands for “Professional Training Rifle” and the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KWA LM4 KR7 PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles not only look the part but operate as close as you are going to get to the real steal version in an Airsoft rifle. You can even interchange the stock, grips, trigger guard with MilSPec components and the same goes for the rails, all MilSpec ready. I want to mention the blowback recoil again because it is truly awesome on these rifles!

Available at the: Canada Replica Airguns StoreUS Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • KWA brands is one of the best out there.

  • Super heavy blowback action really bucks.

  • Really well built mostly aluminum and steel components.

  • Fully customizable MilSpec design throughout.

  • Amazingly realistic perfect for training.

  • Gas Magazine performs really well easily getting through the 40 rounds.

  • Type 3 Hop-up for extended range shooting.

  • Fully Field Strippable.

Cons:

  • GBB system has more limitation compared to an AEG, less rounds, not goof in cold weather.

  • Not the cheapest Airsoft rifles out there but worth every penny.

  • Hard to keep in stock.

Comments:

I know most go-to Airsoft rifles for game play are going to be an AEG since they are going to have a lot more rounds per mag and more consistent performance over a Gas Blowback Airsoft rifle. That said the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KWA LM4 KR7 PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles really make you want to reconsider this choice and try and figure out if perhaps you could use a Gas Blowback Airsoft Rifle on the field? Sure you will need a lot of extra magazines but man is it ever fun feeling that blowback action on your shoulder and experiencing a more true to life experience shooting the KWA LM4 RIS PTR and KWA LM4 KR7 PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifles. If you want the most realistic training Airsoft rifles then it would be hard to find a better option out there.

Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant CO2 BB Rifle Table Top Review

1 Comment

Type: BB Rifle.
Manufacturer: Gletcher.
Model: Gletcher M1941 (Replica of Mosin Nagant).
Materials: Metal & plastic.
Weight: 8.2 pounds (3.7kg).
Barrel: 5.5 inches, smooth bore (inner barrel).
Propulsion: CO2.
Action: Bolt - single shot - single action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 16 rounds.
FPS: 427fps

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.

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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?

Comments:

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.

KWC Mini UZI Most Commonly Asked Questions

No Comments

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!

If your MINI UZI Airgun is not full auto ready then checkout my Full Auto Mod Video but make sure before you do this modification it is legal in your country to do so or you could be looking at jail time :(

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…

1:4 Scale Mini Replica Guns Now in the Replica Airguns Store

No Comments

A while back I did review of the 1/4 Scale Mini Replica Guns distributed by Goat Guns. Goat Guns sent them to me for review and at the time we where not selling them in our Replica Airguns Store. Recently we got some of our own 1/4 Scale Mini Replica Guns that I would say are pretty much exactly the same as the Goat Gun Line but with different packaging since they are not distributed by Goat Guns.

The good news is you can get the same product from us now in our Canada and US Replica Airguns Stores! And ours are even pre-assembled for you but if you like you can take them apart similarly to a real gun.

These 1/4 Scale Mini Replica Guns are made out of a lot of metal where you wound find it on the real steel counterpart and most parts operate the same too like removable magazines, working triggers and safety’s, Even the dust covers on the M4’s open when you charge the mini gun!

Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

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!

Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

I have already reviewed the previous version of the Walther PPS which performed pretty good during my field test shooting video. It shot right around 370 fps which was just a tad faster than the claimed 360 fps. I was also able to place 10 rounds within a 3.5 inch grouping during my Field Test which is about what I was expecting from this rather small shirt barreled BB pistol.

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!

Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

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.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol but I have shot the original Umarex Walther PPS and it did fairly well getting a 2 inch grouping with one of my 10 shot strings. I was also able to get around 370 fps results when testing the original Umarex Walther PPS with my Chronograph. Hopefully the new updated Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol will perform equally as well?

Build Quality: The Umarex 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.

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • Not field strip-able.

  • Only partial blowback action with stick magazine.

  • Comes in clam shall packaging and has ugly warning instructions on slide.

Comments:

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.

Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

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.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol so I can only quote what Umarex is saying in terms of FP2 which is 325. That's sounds about right for a full blowback CO2 BB pistol in this style. We will find out when I get to my Field Test Shooting Video  for the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol.

Build Quality: The Umarex 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?

Realism: The Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is virtually identical in looks to the Real Steel HK USP, it also functions nearly the same with it's full blowback operation, full size drop out metal magazine and working slide catch, safety and single and double action trigger. Thanks to Umarex the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is full HK licensed also helping to pull of a believable replica.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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.

Comments:

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!

Umarex Care Package Update Video - HK USP Blowback - Walther PPS M2 Blowback

No Comments

I got a nice little care package in the main the other day from Umarex, I did have to pay some brokerage fees, duties and taxes but I still got off easy since my care package from Umarex contained three CO2 BB pistols. The Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol, the Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol and I got another Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol for some double handed Glock action if the urge ever comes over me...

All three licensed guns are really great, you already know my thoughts on the Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol since I have previously made  bunch of videos on it already. I also have reviews for the Umarex Walther PPS but not the M2 version which is the one that came in my care package. The new Umarex Walther PPS M2 is a much more modern and smoothed out version of the PPS. The standard PPS kind of looks a bit like a flattened out Walther CP99 While the Umarex Walther PPS M2 is a lot more unique.

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.

Look forward to my upcoming Table Top and Field Test Shooting Video Reviews for the Umarex HK USP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol and the Umarex Walther PPS M2 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol.
