I had a good time reviewing the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, this airgun feels really good in the hand, has some nice crips blowback action, shoots pretty hard and shot right on target at 30 feet. The trigger is a bit long but it feels really smooth with an easy release and no real friction points to it.
Getting to the actual performance testing, I put 5 round through my Chrony Chronograph with the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol and was able to average 395 fps which by the way is exactly what Umarex says it will do! The temperature was not too hot or to cold and I was using a brand new CO2 so it was a fair test all the way around. It's good to see accurate fps specification coming from airguns companies.
Next I preformed my accuracy test shooting the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol at a paper target setup about 30 feet down range while using a seated and hand rested position for stability. I was impressed with how well the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol shot in terms of closeness to the bullseye, it really centered well on the paper. I put an 11 round string of 4.5mm steel BB's into the paper target and was able to get them all within about 2 inches. Not bad at all.
Overall I really like the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, if you're an APX owner and want a BB shooting version for some back yard practice then you may want to pick one up. I would even suggest Glock owners or enthusiasts take a look at the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol since actual Glock airguns are hard to come by and the APX is pretty close in terms of size weight, shape and even looks.
