This Review for the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is a bit different than most I do since usually I perform a dedicated Table Top and Field Test Reviews for each gun I review here on the Replica Airguns Website. I feel that since the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is such a “long gun” that showing it on the table would not work so well , plus it was a super nice day and I wanted to get outside and maybe even shoot a little bit.
I will be performing my usual Field Test Shooting video where I test the Feet Per Second and accuracy at 30 feet so stay posted for that. For now I will leave you with this outdoor “Show and Tell” review.

Model: Umarex Legends Cowboy
Materials: Mainly metal with plastic stock.
Weight: 5.95 pounds (2699 grams).
Length: 38 inches total length
Barrel: 19.25 inch Metal non-rifled smooth bore.
Propulsion: Dual 12 gram CO2.
Action: Lever Action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 10.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is pretty much a single action only trigger since you will need to work the lever action to not only elect and chamber a shell but to also pre cock the hammer. Once the hammer is cocked and ready the trigger pull is short, light and crips, perfect for accurate shooting.
Accuracy: I have only shot 16 rounds through the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle during the making of this review video and found the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle to shoot right on target at 30 feet out. I did notice it shot just slightly high at this range but not a lot and it was dead center windage wise. For longer ranges you can adjust the rear sight to raise the barrel even more. In terms of power it’s hard to say what I was getting, Umarex says it should hit around 410 fps, I felt like it was pretty close to this , maybe a tad bit faster but I will find out for sure when I perform my Field Test Shooting Video Review shortly.
Build Quality: The Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle looks and feels great coming in at nearly 6 pounds and built out of mostly metal with a plastic stock. Don’t be too put out by the plastic stock, it does mimmic the part of wood very well. All the metal parts have a semi-gloss or I would even say matt back finish and so far the paint is wearing pretty good, no noticeable paint coming off that I can see. The action works great with no failure to chamber, eject or shoot rounds.
Realism: The Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is an awesome example of the classic lever action cowboy rifle. Having the ejecting shells makes it feel like you are shooting the real deal right from the time you start loading up the 10 shells into the pipe magazine, until you work that lever action and pull the trigger. Watching the ejected shells fly through the air is the icing on the cake :) There is not much more you can ask for from a BB firing replica Lever Action Cowboy Rifle!
Super realistic replica lever action BB firing Cowboy Rifle.
Fully working lever action, chambers and ejects shells perfectly.
Good weight and feel to it with lots of metal throughout.
Everything works exactly like the real steel version.
Duel CO2 to help get not only more shots before reloading CO2 but also a more consistent FPS from all shots.
Adjustable rear sight for elevation.
Comes with 10 rounds and can also use your Umarex Colt Single Action Army BB shells in it.
Plastic imitation wood stock looks very much like real wood.
Stock is not real wood, hopefully Umarex offers a wood upgrade for it at some time.
A bit low in FPS, why not take it right up to 499 fps since the US version has a 600 fps rating.
Took too long for us to get it here in Canada!.
The Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is a perfect example of an Airgun company listening to their customers and bringing to market exactly what we are looking for, kind of like the Single Action Army Revolvers that came out a while back. These old cowboy guns are a blast to shoot from the time you pick up the rifle, insert 10 shells into the magazine, work the lever action, pull that trigger and then repeat 10 times. This is a must have for anyone looking for a super realistic BB rifle, even if you’re not an old west cowboy fan I think you will love shooting the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle!
