UMAREX BERETTA ELITE II CO2 BB PISTOL REVIEW

No Comments

Related Posts:

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Umarex.
Model: Beretta Elite II.
Materials: Mostly plastic with some metal parts.
Weight: 1.5 pounds.
Barrel: 5.25 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto, double action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 19 round magazine.
FPS: 480.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on this gun is about medium, the trigger first cocks the hammer and then near the end there is a break point where the hammer releases.
Accuracy: I was a bit surprised by the poor results I achieved with this gun shooting from a standing non-rested position from about 20 feet away. I have seen other reviews with much better results, so I will blame the results on me this time and maybe I will have another go with this gun on a different day.
Build Quality: This is a mostly all plastic gun with the exception of some internal parts and the drop out metal magazine. That said it does feel solid and well built with good overall fit and finish.
Realism: The Umarex Beretta Elite II is a replica of the Beretta 92G Elite II (9 mm) and does resemble the real steal in many ways with the acceptation of the extended magazine on the actual Beretta 92G Elite II. For the most part, none of the mechanical parts are functional; like the hammer, slide release, safety, and take down leaver. These parts are all molded into the plastic, the only acceptation to this is the magazine release. Another let down as far as realism goes are the screw holes on the right hand side of the gun.
Purchased this gun in: The Replica Airgun Store.

Pros:

  • Low cost licensed replica of the Beretta 92G Elite II.
  • High 480 FPS.
  • Drop free 19 round metal magazine.
  • Picatinny rail for accessories like tactical lights and lasers.

Cons:

  • Mostly plastic construction.
  • Didn't do well for me in the accuracy department (Others have done much better).
  • Ugly screw holes on the left hand side of the gun.

Comments:
This is another low cost replica air gun from Umarex designed for the entry level buyer. It's actually a pretty well made gun in terms of durability but it does lack the details like operational parts and more metal throughout. The Beretta Elite's saving graces are its high 480 FPS, drop out metal magazine and licensed Beretta trademarks. For abut $50, you do get a good overall replica BB pistol.
