In this Field test Shooting Review I again get out from under my deck roofing and take my Chronograph and target shooting onto the pool patio. I may as well take advantage of the great summer weather we are having and get some rays while I shoot a video :)
The CO2 BB Pistol I chose for this Field Test Shooting video is the Umarex HK45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol. As per my usual Field Test Shooting Video Reviews, I test out the real world velocity (fps) for the Umarex HK45 BB Pistol by shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph using a brand new CO2 and using 5.1 grain RWS zinc coated Steel BB's. I did have a few Chronograph issues but managed to get 5 good readings giving me an average of 421 fps.
Then I stepped back 30 feet and shot 10 RWS 5.1 grain zinc coated Steel BB's on a paper target to see how accurate the Umarex HK45 Metal Slide CO2 BB Pistol would be for me on this day. I was impressed to see a tight 1 inch grouping shooting from my rested position. The BB's where well centered on the target, just a hair to the left but good considering the sights are none adjustable.
Overall the velocity and accuracy of the Umarex HK45 are really good for this low cost BB pistol, the double action trigger is a bit long and on the medium pull, side but that is to be expected. The white dot sights make acquiring just about any target easy which may have helped me in my accuracy portion of the test.
