Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is like what you would expect from a real Beretta of this style, it offers both single and double action but most of the time you will be shooting in single action since the slide blowback cocks the hammer after each shot. Single action has a little bit of take-up but has a predictable release that is not overly light or heavy. Double action shots are longer and heavier which is as expected but will only be required for that first shot if you have de-cocked your chambered pistol.

Accuracy: I have not shot this "version" of the  Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol but it will undoubtedly perform very similar to the  Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol I previously tested since both guns are mechanically very similar. You shoudl expect around 320-340 fps deeding on the outside temperature and 10 shot groupings from 30 feet away to be in the 2-3 inch diameter range.

Build Quality: The Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is slightly lighter than the standard Beretta Mod. 92 A1 since it has a polymer frame but it still has a good weight to it at close to 2 pounds. All the materials feel high quality and the fit and finish is top notch. It’s a real looker for sure! The slide spring is one of the heavier ones I have seen in a full blowback CO2 BB pistol giving a real snappy blowback action.

Realism: The Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a 1 to 1 replica of the Real Steel Beretta M9A3 and when I looked at the Real Steel version online I was amazed at how close they looked each other, the Real Steel Beretta M9A3 does have a full beveled magazine well but you can only really see this when the magazine is out of the gun. You are going to find the mechanical parts on the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol work pretty much the same as the real steel version including the ability to field strip it.
