1 Comment

Type: Blowback Pellet & BB Pistol.

Model: SA10.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 2.05 pounds (930 grams).
Barrel: Metal rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single & double action.
Ammunition Type: .177 caliber pellets & 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 8x4 round rotary full size drop out metal magazine.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol is similar to most of the rotary magazine styled pellet pistols. The blowback operation does cock the hammer allowing for a lighter single action styled trigger pull but the trigger pull length is still about the same as shooting in double action. There is less trigger pull weight when the hammer is back shooting in single action but the first part of the trigger pull is necessary in order to rotate the magazine.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol so I have no feedback to share so far but I plan to test out the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol during my next indoor Sea Can Field Test Shooting video. I will be testing out both pellets and BB's for velocity and accuracy.

Build Quality: The Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol feel great in the hand and has a nice weight and solid feel to it. Like most modern day pistols the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol has a metal slide and polymer frame, you will also find a lot of internal metal parts along with a full size drop out metal magazine. Fit and finish are also very good.

Realism: The Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol is not a copy or replica of any actual real steel gun in production but to me it most resembles a Sig Sauer, not exactly as the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol does incorporate its own design and style. You will find a lot of real gun attributes  that make this gun look and feel the deal. Like it's blowback operation, full see drop out metal magazine, wide open recessed barrel and ability to be field stripped.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Great weight and feel to it, build quality seems good.

  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.

  • Unique full size drop out metal magazine that holds extra rotary magazines on it for quick reloading.

  • Have the option of shooting Steel BB’s or pellets.

  • Has a rifled barrel.

  • Gold barrel looks good.

  • Barrel tip is removable allowing for possible mock suppressor or silencer.

  • Slide catch is actually a safety making it nice and discreet.

  • Can easily field strip the gun.

  • Warning instruction are not overpowering.

Cons:

  • No white or yellow dot sight on the front and they are non-adjustable.

  • Trigger safety is just for show.

  • Not really a replica but a great looking gun none the less.

Comments:

I have been waiting a while to get my hands on the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol and now that I have it for review I can say it seems to be a really well put together CO2 Blowback Airgun. OF course I still need to get some shooting in with it till I make my final decision but so far I am liking what I am seeing. Generally prefer actual Replica Airguns but the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol does have a really nice look and feel to it, I don't even mind the Gold barrel and I am usually not a big Gold Gun fan. The unique magazine design with its snap in rotary Pellet and BB magazines shoudl come in handy when it coms time for testing and the ability to shoot either Pellets or BB's does give the shooter more options.

If you're interested in picking up an Umarex SA10 for yourself you can find them in our Replica Airguns Canada and US Online Store.
