Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle Field Test Review

No Comments

If you have not already watched my Table Top Video Review for the Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle than make sure to do so if you are interested in more specifications and details.

I don’t often make many Paintball Review Gun Videos let alone Shooting Videos so this one is a bit different than the norm. Lucky for me I have some .43 caliber Rubber Paintballs that I can use in my Indoor Sea Can Shooting Range so as not to make a mess of things. As per usual I like to use a brand new 12 Gram CO2 Cartridge for my testing and for your reference the temperature was right around room temperature or 21 degree Celsius, 69 degrees Fahrenheit.

First up I generally perform my Chronograph test to see what the real world velocity or fps is for the Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle. I shot a short string of rubber rounds through my Chronograph and was able to get a 280 fps average with the Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle. This is plenty enough power for the intended target down range to feel the paintball effect without causing too much trauma.

With the remaining 10 rounds in my Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle magazine, I then setup a brand new paper target 30 feet down range and using a rested and seated shooting position and carefully unloaded the Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle into the target. I was a bit surprised to see the rounds spread out a fair amount perhaps as much as 10-12 inches but at least half where in the target rings.

I would not recommend the Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle as a long range paintball marker but it would be perfect for close quarters ultra realistic simulations. I would like to give actual .43 caliber paintballs a try outside to see if accuracy would be better, maybe the rubber balls grip the barrel a bit too much causing some random and unexpected spinning to occur? Either way the Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle is a really unique and fun Paintball Gun to shoot, maybe not for everyone but if you want the most realistic Paintball Marker then it would be a great option.

Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

In this Field Test Shooting Video I focus on Umarex’s latest CO2 Blowback BB Airgun, the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. We have been waiting a while for this one to ship and now that it’s here I really want to get to shooting it and finding out if it performed as good as it looked and felt.

I loaded up my Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol with a brand new 12 gram Sig Sauer CO2 cartridges along with some 4.5mm RWS 5.1 grain Zinc coated BB’s and began the Chronograph portion of my Indoor Field Test Shooting Video. The temperature was not overly warm sitting right around 19 degrees Celsius or 66 degrees Fahrenheit. Umarex claims roughly around 300 fps from the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol but I was able to get just a bit high with my 5 shots through the Chronograph averaging 310 fps.

I then put up a paper target 30 feet down range, reloaded my full size drop out metal magazine with 10 more steel BB’s and proceeded to carefully place the 10 shots into the target using a rested and seated shooting position. I was able to get around a 3.5 inch grouping but I feel I could have done better since several rounds actually shot one on top of the other. The Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol did shot just a little bit low and to the left but not a lot.

I really like the trigger on the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, it’s short and light, perfect for shot placement and also action shooting. The blowback action is nice and crisp giving the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol just enough blowback recoil effect. I didn't have any issues with the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol which makes for the best testing and out of all the Umarex Glocks to date the Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is by far my favorite version! If you already have and Umarex Glock, that’s OK get this one too, you won’t be disappointed.

Webley Nemesis Bolt Action CO2 Pellet Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

Make sure to watch my Preview Table Top Review for the Webley Nemesis Bolt Action CO2 Pellet Pistol if you’re looking for more specifications and details.

The Webley Nemesis is a really interesting CO2 Pellet Pistol, so far I have not reviewed an Airgun like it. Yes I have reviewed bolt action CO2 Pellet Pistols in the past but not one with a rotary magazine for much quicker followup shots. This is by no means as quick as a semi auto shooter but being able to quickly work the bolt action without having to manually place a pellet in the breach area sure does speed things up.

On the box Webley claims up to 420 fps with the ,177 caliber version the Webley Nemesis is a really interesting CO2 Pellet Pistol I was testing and I was able to get an average of 430 fps using a brand new CO2 along with RWS 6.9 grain lead pellets. I did find the RWS pellets I was using did not feed all that well perhaps because they had a fairly narrow waist on them which does effect the way pellets are held in the rotary magazine. The temperature was fairly normal at right around room temperature.

For my accuracy portion of the Field Test Shooting Video for the Webley Nemesis is a really interesting CO2 Pellet Pistol, I switched to Sig Sauer .177 caliber lead pellets and they worked much better in terms of chambering cleanly for me. I found the Webley Nemesis is a really interesting CO2 Pellet Pistol shot a bit high on my paper target placed 30 feet away, so I set my sights on the bottom ring which placed almost all my 14 shots right in the bullseye. My 14 shot string was grouping around 1.5 inches but I am sure the Webley Nemesis is a really interesting CO2 Pellet Pistol could shoot quarter sized objects at 30 feet downrange all day long once you get use to it.

The trigger on the Webley Nemesis Bolt Action CO2 Pellet Pistol is one of the highlights of this air pistol, it really feels great. Combine this with nice high consistent fps and excellent accuracy and the Webley Nemesis is a really interesting CO2 Pellet Pistol is a great target shooter with potential for up close small pest control.

G&G GPM1911 GBB Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

I’m going to start off by saying this Field Test Shooting Review for the G&G GPM1911 GBB Airsoft Pistol did not go all that well as I had some complications with this Airgun when chambering rounds. I am pretty sure it is magazine related and hope to try a different magazine with it soon. I say this because I am following through with my review regardless of my initial results to demonstrate that not all Airguns perform as expected during my reviews and sometimes you get a lemon even with a good quality brand like G&G.

I am fairly certain the defect in this case for the G&G GPM1911 GBB Airsoft Pistol was the magazine tip being too tight and not allowing an Airsoft BB to position all the way to the top of the magazine which means when the slide cycled and the nozzle was in position to push an Airsoft BB into the breach, it simple was hitting the top of the BB and pushing it even further into the magazine. All said and done I was able to test the fps and accuracy on target so let’s get on with my review.

Using .20 gram Airsoft BB’s with a fully filled propane gas magazine in my G&G GPM1911 GBB Airsoft Pistol, I was able to get 6 recoreded shots through my Chronograph averaging 319 fps. The slowest shot being 313 fps and the fastest shot hitting 330 fps. The temperature was right around room temperature so around 22 degrees Celsius or 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

As I was having issues with with the G&G GPM1911 GBB Airsoft Pistol chambering rounds with the .20 gram Airsoft BB’s. I was hoping that when I switched to a different .32 gram Airsoft BB for my target portion of this review that perhaps the different Airsoft BB’s would chamber better but they did not. To get through the target portion of my test, with each shot I had to drop the magazine, make sure the Airsoft BB’s was at the top of the magazine, rack the slide, insert the magazine and then release the slide. So as you can see I was resetting completely for each shot which does not always make for the tightest groupings. Surprisingly I was still able to get about a 1.5 inch grouping on my paper target setup 30 feet downrange using a rested and seated shooting position.

Not all reviews go as planned but you still have to make the best of it. I really feel the G&G GPM1911 GBB Airsoft Pistol is a good gun overall even though mine did not perform that well for me. When I was able to chamber a round it shot a consistent fps and placed Airsoft BB’s downrange accurately and very close to the bullseye. Perhaps simply by swapping out the magazine I will have a much more reliable Airsoft gun? I will have to get back to you on that one.

Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle Field Test Review

1 Comment

Lots of CO2 BB Rifles getting reviewed these days and that’s kind of awesome, I remember a few years back and we barely had any realistic Replica BB rifles available to us. Now we have an ever increasing list of choices from Historical to Modern.

Todays Field Test Shooting Video focusses on the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle, I have not done my Table Top Video yet for it but I did make a preview video where I show it around a bit and talk about some basic specs. In short the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle is a CO2 powered semi auto 4.5mm Steel BB firing replica of the Springfield Armory M1 Carbine. It holds the CO2 and 15 rounds of Steel BB’s in its full size drop out metal magazine. Available with a plastic or upgraded wood stock.

For the Field Test Shooting part of this review I tested out the power and accuracy of the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle by first shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph to establish the Feet Per Second velocity. I then placed a fresh paper target 30 feet downrange, while using a rested and seated shooting position I fired off 10 rounds into the target to see how tight of a group I can get with the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle. I used a brand new CO2 along with 5.1 grain 4.5mm Zinc coated Steel BB’s. The temperature was a conservative 22 degrees Celsius or 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

During my Chronograph velocity test I was a bit surprised to only obtain an average of 335 fps from the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle. Air Venturi claims closer to 425 so I am not sure why it was nearly 100 fps lower than claimed but perhaps the CO2 did not pierce as well as it could have, that said 335 fps does get the job done when shooting targets 20-30 feet away.

In terms of accuracy I was very pleased with the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle, it kind of made up for the slower than expected feet per second by getting a sub 1 inch 10 round group and I am not a big fan of peep sights so I was really not expecting these results. Right out of the box the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle shot pretty close to the bullseye, just s slight bit to the left and about 1-2 inches high. The rear sight is adjustable for elevation so that can be taken care of pretty easy.

All in all I really like the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle other than the lower than expected fps which may have been something to do with my rifle? I will have to try a fresh CO2 with it sometime to see if this can be improved but even with the lower velocity the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle performs well hitting what ever you are shooting at with excellent accuracy. The blowback action gives the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle just enough recoil feel to tap your shoulder a bit and of course give you that nice short and light single action only trigger.

Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun Field Test Review

No Comments

Make sure to watch my Table Top Video Review for the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun for all the details and specifications. And if you have not already taken a look at the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 then watch those video reviews since both guns are very similar internally with some cosmetic differences.

The purpose of my Field Test Shooting Video is to find out how the airgun being reviewed performs in terms of velocity and accuracy, and if the ratings on paper end-up being the same or close to the tested results. Crosman claims the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is capable of shooting 5.1 grain 4.5mm Steel BB’s at up to 430 fps. When I tested the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun using my Chronograph averaging out 5 shots using a brand new set of CO2 cartridges I averaged 385 fps. Note the temperature in my Indoor Airgun Sea Can Shooting Range was not super warm at about 20-22 degrees Celsius or right around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I was able to get 405 fps from the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 but I have a feeling the temperate may have been a little bit warmer for the DPMS SBR Testing which does help to increase the fps.

Moving on to the accuracy portion of this Field Test Shooting Review for the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun, I loaded up the 25 round magazine with the maximum amount t it would hold and then placed 10 semi auto shots on my paper target setup 30 feet downrange. I was using a rested and seated shooting position to help minimize human factor. I was a bit surprised that the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun shot a 2.5 inch semi auto 10 shot group since the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 was able to get just under 1 inch when I performed the same test.

I then flipped the semi auto selector switch to full auto and dumped the remaining 15 rounds into my paper target in full auto mode and to my surprise the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun actually tightened up it’s grouping a little bit closer to 1.5 inches which is amazing in full auto mode with the airgun rocking around a lot due to the blowback action.

In summary the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun performed a lot like the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4, just a little bit lower fps perhaps because of the difference in temperature when both of the airguns where tested. In semi auto mode I should have been able to get a tighter grouping, perhaps it was my performance on this day? But in full auto mode I was able to get nearly identical results as I shot with the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4.

I think it really comes down to which of the Crosman AR type full auto BB rifles you like the look of since both are very capable shooters. Or just get both if you can’t decide :)

Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

In this Field Test Shooting Review Video I test out both the 3.8 Compact and 4.5 Full Size Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistols to see how they perform in both velocity and accuracy. I thought it would be interesting to see how the shorter and longer barreled versions compare side by side and if we sill see a difference in power and down range accuracy…

As always I use a brand new 12 gram CO2 along with 5.1 gran zinc coated steel BB’s for my testing and on this day the temperature in the Sea Can Indoor Airgun range was around 24 degrees Celsius or 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Starting with the Chronograph test I placed 5 rounds through each gun and averaged out the result. The 3.8 inch Compact Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistol averaged 281 fps while the 4.5 inch Full Size Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistol averaged 303 fps. So it looks like the additional .7 inches increases the velocity about 20 fps!

I then shot 10 steel BB’s from each Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistol on my paper target setup 30 feet down range using a rested and seated shooting position. The 3.8 Compact Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistol shot about a 2 inch grouping but seemed to shoot rather low, just outside the outer rings so about 3-4 inches below the bullseye. Windage was good pretty much dead center left to right on the target.

I did find the 4.5 Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistol to shoot a little bit low as well but not as low as the 3.8 XDM staying inside the rings and about 2 inches below the bullseye, again all within about 2 inches and well center left to right.

At the end of the day both the 3.8 and 4.5 Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback CO2 BB Pistols perfumed flawlessly for me with really great SAO triggers and a nice heavy blowback feel giving a noticeable recoil effect. The 3.8 Springfield Armory XDM did shoot a little bit slower as expected and a little bit lower on the target. It all comes down to choice and there are many with the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM Blowback Air Pistols. Airsoft or Steel BB, 3.8 inch or 4.5 inch, all black or silver slide. You decide which one is best for you :)

Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle Review

No Comments

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.

Specifications:

Type: CO2 BB Rifle.
Manufacturer: Umarex
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.
FPS: 410 fps.

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!

Pros:

  • 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.

Cons:

  • 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!.

Comments:

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!

My YouTube Table Top Video of the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle:

Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

In this Field Test Shooting Video I test out the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol in the Indoor Airgun Shooting Range to see what the real world velocity is and just how accurate it will be at 30 feet. I don't have my Table Top Video for the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol just yet but will get to it shortly.

Using .20 gram BB’s I loaded up the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol with propane gas and placed several rounds through my Chronograph to see what the feet per second average would be. The last 5 shots I took where actual the fastest averaging 290 fps, a little bit slower than I was expecting but just about right for close quarters Airsoft games.

I then switched over to .32 gram Airsoft BB’s since they tend to be a bit more accurate out at longer ranges. Using a fresh paper target and shooting from a rested and seated position 30 feet away, I took 10 shots with the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol. The result was a 10 round grouping of about 2 inches with one straggler just outside the main group. The Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol did shoot a little bit low at 30 feet but I am sure the hop-up can be adjusted for this. It was well centered left to right which is a good thing since the sights are non-adjustable.

I really like the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Airsoft Pistol, it looks and feels very solid with a nice balance in the hand. The Single Action Only Trigger is short and light making follow up shots quick and responsive. The blowback action is crisp with good simulated recoil. I look forward to trying out the Steel BB version of the Air Venturi Springfield Armory XDM GBB Pistol as soon as I get my hands on one which should be pretty soon. Take your pick, Airsoft or Steel BB, either is a great choice!

Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

Make sure to watch my Table Top YouTube Video Review for the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol if you’re interested in information about the specifications and some close up detailed video of the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

In this Field Test Shooting video I perform two main Airgun tests using the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. The Chronograph Test to find out what the actual real world velocity is using a brand new CO2 along with 5.1 grain 4.5mm high quality Steel BB’s. And secondly I perform an Accuracy Test where I shoot 10 rounds at a paper target setup 30 feet away while using a rested seated position to take out as much human factor as possible. By the way the temperature on this day in the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Range was 24 degrees Celsius or 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Starting with the Chronograph Test, I shot 5 rounds with the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol through my Chronograph and averaged 287 fps with the fastest being 297 fps and the lowest being 276 fps. This was pretty close to Sig Sauers 295 maximum fps claim and right in line for a super short barrelled blowback BB pistol.

So how did the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol do in terms of accuracy? Well not bad. I was able to get around a 2.5 inch 10 shot grouping with all but one shot hitting within 2 inches of each other. I did find the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol shot a little bit low at 30 feet but not a crazy amount. In terms of windage it was well centered, maybe just a hair to the right.

Overall the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a nice shooter, it has a very fast and snappy blowback action and makes a kind of popping sound that’s is louder than I expected. The SAO trigger when using good quality smooth 4.5mm Steel BB’s was decent allowing me to concentrate on my shooting rather than struggle with the trigger. All in all I really love this little Air Pistol, Sig Sauer did a great job bringing it to market and getting as much into the Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol as they could considering it’s super compact size.

KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

I will start of this Field Test Shooting video by saying that the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol is not going to be an action shooter since it is a single action only gun much like the old west 6 shooters but in this case it is not a revolver but rather what looks like a semi auto Tokarev. Once you get over that and accept that there will be no action shooting with the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol, then we can get back to having some good old shooting fun with it.

For my Chronograph Test to find out if the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol get’s close to KWC’s 423 claimed fps I loaded up the Full Size Drop Out Metal Magazine with around 10 BB’s in hopes of getting at least 5 recorded shots to determine a real world velocity. Initially the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol was shooting poorly with the velocity going up and down a lot even as low as 200 fps but as I finished off the 10 round magazine things started to improve a bit. So I loaded up another 10 rounds and gave it another go. This second time around the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol performed much better getting an Average of 370 fps which is a lot closer to the clamped fps by KWC.

You may wonder why the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol was not so good out of the box, I think perhaps the CO2 valve just needed a little bit of break in time, perhaps there was some machining residue in the valve area that was hampering things and after a bit of shooting it clear it out? Either way I did not have any more problems with the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol after the first 10 rounds. The temperature in the Indoor Airgun Sea Can Shooting Range was 24 degrees Celsius or 75 degrees Fahrenheit and I did use a brand new CO2 for this test as always.

For my Accuracy Test the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol I shot 10 rounds into a paper target from 30 feet away using a seated and rested shooting position. I was able to get 8 of the shots all within about an inch of each other with 2 of the shots coming out just a bit. One of the straggler shots I actually saw hook to the right which makes me think it may have been a BB that was a little deformed, this can happen sometimes. The KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol did shoot about 2.5 inches high and just slightly to the left out of the box and since the sights are non-adjustable you will want to aim a bit low on your target at least at 30 foot ranges.

I found the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol to be a decent BB shooter capable of 1 inch groupings at 30 feet out and getting close to 400 fps, I imagine since it does not have blowback and your shots are not going to be very rapid that you will get at least 100 shots per CO2. The trigger is Single Action Only so I was expecting it to be lighter than it was so you will have to get a bit use to it as I did have to apply more pressure than I was expecting. Overall the KWC Model TT-33 CO2 SAO Non-Blowback BB Pistol is another nice addition to the Tokarev line of Airguns and should be considered if this is what you are looking for.

KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

I have been looking forward to making this Filed Test Shooting Review for some time now. I have reviewed lots of other KWC CO2 BB 1911’s in the past but this is the first pellet shooting version and it even has a full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and duel 6 round rotary magazines. Sure there is no blowback operation and the trigger is double action only but it does have a rifled barrel and I was hoping it would get decent accuracy because of this. Let’s find out…

Starting with my Chronograph test to see if I could hit the 345 fps claimed velocity on the outside of the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol Box, as always I used a brand new CO2 cartridge for testing. I then loaded 6 RWS Super-H-Point 6.9 grain lead pellets into the 6 round rotary magazines and fired off 6 shots to get an average. Even using these lead non-hypervelocity pellets I was able to get an average of 341 fps with some of the faster shots hitting 350 fps so yes the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol does get the pellets up to 345 fps as claimed by KWC. The temperature was about average at right around 24 degrees Celsius or 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Time for the accuracy potion of my Field Test Shooting Review for the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol. Since the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol has twin 6 round rotary magazines, I decided to shoot them all off and get a 12 round grouping on my paper target setup 30 feet down range shooting from a seated and rested position. My first 6 rounds all hit well within 1 inch or less of each other about 1.5 inches high from the bullseye and just a tad to the left. I then rotated the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol 6 shot rotary magazine to the remaining 6 rounds and again almost all of them shot right on top of the first 6 rounds, I did pull one shot a bit that hit low and then may have pulled another shot just a little bit high from the 1 inch group but 10 of the 12 rounds ended up making a nice 1 inch hole in the target.

Even though the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol has a double action only trigger, it is very usable in terms of placing accurate shots on target. The trigger is really not too heavy and does have a predictable break and release point to it. The gun holds just like any other 1911 I have shot but is slightly lighter and a little bit top heavy since it has a polymer frame to go along with the metal slide and magazines. If you’re looking for a realistic looking and feeling pellet firing 1911 with decent fps and excellent accuracy then look no further than the KWC M1911 Non-Blowback CO2 Pellet Pistol.

Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

Make sure to checkout my Table Tope Video review for the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol if you want to see some close-up video along with details and specifications for it.

In this Field Test Shooting video for the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol I take it through a series of tests to see what kind of velocity and accuracy we can expect form the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

To see what kind of power the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol has I place 5 shots through my Chronograph using a brand new CO2 and 5.1 grain standard steel BB’s. The temperature inside my Sea Can indoor airguns shooting range was about 22 degrees Celsius or 70 degrees Fahrenheit so not too warm or too cold, perfect for CO2 Airgun testing. The Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol was able to average 363 fps which was actually a little bit faster than Umarex’s claimed 330fps.

Moving on to my accuracy test for the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol I first placed 10 semi auto rods into my paper target situated 30 feet downrange and form my seated and rested position I was able to get most of the shots in a 1 inch grouping with two outliers. Keep in mind I had to repeat this test since my first 10 shot grouping was very low on the target. I also found the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol shot a little bit to the left but not a lot. Perhaps the internal hop-up adjustment may bring the BB’s up a bit on target?

I then replaced the magazine with a fully loaded one and just for fun shot some full auto bursts into the target, as expected my results where more or less “Spray and Pray” with some steel BB’s bouncing off of harder potions of the target and coming back at me…

Overall the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a decent performer and a lot of fun to shoot with very snappy blowback operation. Other than ti shooting low on the target I had nothing to complain about and I really think it’s one of the nicest Steel BB shooting Blowback Beretta pistols on the market.

G&G Armament GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

Make sure to checkout my Table Top Review for the G&G GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol where I show you around the G&G Armament GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol nice and close and perform a Field Strip of it.

In the Field Test Shooting Video I perform my standard Chronograph and accuracy tests on the G&G GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol. I put 5 rounds ( At least I try to…) through my Chrony Chronograph using slightly heavier than usual .32 gram plastic Airsoft BB's with a full propane filled magazine. My Sea Can Indoor Airgun Range was warmed up sufficiently for a gas gun test (Around 22 degrees Celsius or 70 degrees Fahrenheit) but perhaps because I was using the heavier .32 gram Airsoft BB’s I only managed to get around 230fps for the G&G GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol.

Moving onto my accuracy test I placed 10 shots on target 30 feet down range using a rested shooting position, sitting in the back and sand bag up front. I was impressed with how tight of a 10 shot grouping I got! I was able to get the bulk of the shots all within about an inch with only two shots hitting just a little outside of this. The G&G Armament GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol did shoot a little bit low and just a tad to the left but you shoudl be able to raise it up as needed using the built in Hop-up adjustment.

You will notice in my Filed Test Shooting Youtube Video that I did has some initial problems with the G&G Armament GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol misfiring some rounds. This seemed to only happen when I switched to a brand new propane tank and topped up the magazine all the way. My first 4-5 shots seemed to vent a lot of gas and for some reason the G&G Armament GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol would misfire. Once I got through the initial rounds the G&G Armament GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol shot just fine. Not the most powerful Airsoft gun I have tested but for indoor close quarter Airgun battles the G&G Armament GTP9 GBB Airsoft Pistol would perform just fine.

Umarex Legends Wildcard 45 CO2 Airsoft Revolver Field Test Review

No Comments

I’ve reviewed a lot of the Single Action Army Revolvers to date in a variety of 4.5mm Steel BB and .177 caliber lead pellet shooting versions but so far I have not reviewed any 6mm Airsoft versions, until now!

In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I test out the Umarex Legends Wildcard 45 CO2 Airsoft Revolver to see what the actual real world fps is and also shoot at a paper target 30 feet down range to see what kind of accuracy I can get from it.

Starting with my Chronograph test. I placed 6 shots using my Umarex Legends Wildcard 45 CO2 Airsoft Revolver through the Chronograph and averaged them out getting a result of 342 fps. Not bad considering Umarex claims only 335 fps. I was using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB’s with a brand new CO2 and the indoor temperature was 22 degrees Celsius or about 70 degrees Fahrenheit which is a fairly neutral temperature for testing a CO2 Airgun.

Next I loaded up my Umarex Legends Wildcard 45 CO2 Airsoft Revolver this time with .32 gram plastic Airsoft BB’s and shot the full 6 round cylinder on my paper target 30 feet away using a rested seated position. 5 of the rods all shot within about 3 inches while one came outside of this just a bit. The Umarex Legends Wildcard 45 CO2 Airsoft Revolver shot really well center on the target and since there are no sighting adjustments or hop-up adjustments this is good news!

I’m not really sure if a six shot single action only revolver is really going to be your best option for an Airsoft battle but hey who am I to say. The Umarex Legends Wildcard 45 CO2 Airsoft Revolver does have about the right fps for close quarter shooting and shoots on target at least at 30 feet or more so in those regards it’s just fine. Low ammo capacity, not so quick reloading and having to cock the hammer for each shot could be a limiting factor but if the old west cowboys could clear a room in seconds with these six shooters then why not give it a go!

KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 2.5 & 3 Airsoft Rifle Field Test Review

No Comments

Make sure to watch my Preview YouTube Video for the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 2.5 & 3 Airsoft Rifles where I go over some of the specifications and also end off the video with my SHOT Show KWA Interview where Johnathan shows us around the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 2.5 & 3 Airsoft Rifles.

In this Field Test Shooting Review I test both the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 2.5 & 3 Airsoft Rifles out putting some rounds through my Chronograph to see what the actual fps is. I also put some rounds down range to see how the accuracy is for both of these KWA AEG Airsoft Rifles is.

Starting with my Chronograph test, I was using heavier than normal .32 gram Airsoft BB’s to see if this would help out a bit with the accuracy but keep in mind it will slow the fps down a bit compared to using standard .20 gram Airsoft BB’s. My results for both AIrsoft guns where pretty close with the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 2.5 Airsoft Rifle shooting slightly faster at around 324 fps versus the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 3 Airsoft Rifle coming in with a velocity of 314 fps. The KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 2.5 Airsoft Rifle can be adjusted for 320-380 fps by accessing a screw situated at the end of the buffer tube. The KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 3 Airsoft Rifle does not have this feature since it has its recoil system setup inside the buffer tube. You can swap out springs if you want to adjust your fps on the TK.45 3 Airsoft Rifle.

Moving on to the accuracy test. I know 30 feet is not really a great range for testing out an AEG Airsoft rifle but it does give us an idea of how tight it will shoot at this range and then all we need to do is expand that a bit as we get further out. But a tight group at 30 feet should mean a decent group even when shooting further away.

I do have to say I was having some difficulty with the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 3 Airsoft Rifle using the same ammo in both guns so this should not be a problem if it works well in one but not the other? That said I was getting misfeeds followed by double shots using the .32 gram Airsoft BB’s in the TK.45 3 Airsoft Rifle. Even in full auto it seemed to misfeeds for a bit but then cleared up at the end. Maybe a different ammo choice or some break in time is required? That said both Airsoft guns seemed to shoot low so perhaps a hop-up adjustment is in order. The KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 2.5 Airsoft Rifle seemed to shoot the lowest even requiring me to retest it since my first go around shot below the range of the camera. When I sighted in at the top of the target the second time I did get a very tight 1 inch grouping just below the bullseye. In full auto both guns punched nice 2-3 inch holes through the paper targets.

Other than the strange miss feeding issue I had with the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 3 Airsoft Rifle, I found them to be very nice rifles. The simulated blowback recoil action felt nice on the shoulder so personally I would go for the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 3 Airsoft Rifle, I would just need to workout the miss feeding issue for sure. Maybe even a shorter version of the KWA Ronin TK.45 Tekken AEG 3.0 Airsoft Rifle would be nice? You can purchase one of these KWA Airsoft Rifles over in our Canada Replica Airguns store!

Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

I’ve already fully reviewed the CO2 BB version of this Umarex Beretta APX so you can checkout the Table Top and Field Test videos for the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. And if you want to see the Airsoft version in more detail and find out more about the specifications then watch my Table Top Review for the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol.

Starting with my Chronograph velocity testing for the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol, I placed 5 .20 gram Airsoft rounds through my Chrony using a brand new CO2 and was able to average right around 298 fps. Pretty close to Umarex’s claim of 325. Keep in mind it was not super warm at right around 15 degrees Celsius or 60 degrees Fahrenheit. In a warmer environment I would expect to get right up to the 325 fps Umarex has stated on the box.

For the accuracy portion of my Field test for the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol I setup a new paper target down range and placed 10 rounds into it from my seated and rested shooting position. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol shot very well centered getting most of the 10 rounds right in the bullseye! The rest came out a bit making the 10 shot group just under 3 inches in diameter. Not bad at all for a low cost budget Airsoft Pistol.

Overall the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is pretty decent for what you pay. It looks really good too. The trigger is a bit long but not too heavy for quick shooting. The slide spring is a bit weak which may be the reason the slide stayed back a couple of times for me? Other than that the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is good value in my books and even comes with two metal stick magazines for quick reloading while on the field!

KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

This review was plagued with nothing but recording issues during the target accuracy portion of the review. I had to record it 6 separate times for reasons like: Two battery issues, one wrong setting in my camera, a memory card issue (wasn’t reading) and in one test I had a piece of cardboard covering a camera lens!!! Anyway I did get it done in the end but it was very frustrating!

So how did the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol perform for me during this Field Test Shooting Video? I would have to say a bit hot and cold. In terms of velocity, the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol was bang on averaging right around 325 fps which was right in line with KWC’s 328 fps claim. And the temperature was not super hot inside the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Range. About 15 degrees Celsius or around 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Moving on to the target portion of this Field Test Review I did manage to get a 4 inch 10 round grouping during my first test (which had recording issues) but for the shooting test that made it to this video my grouping spread out a fair amount closer to 6-8 inches. I did play around with the internal hop-up because the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol likes to shoot low and to the right, so I thought that if I adjusted the hop-up up, I would be able to get shots a little higher on target but this adjustment only seemed to make the gun shoot a little bit less accurately for me? As always I was shooting using me rested seated position from 30 feet down range.

I can say that the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol shoot really nicely with a snappy heavy blowback action and the trigger is nice and short and light. The KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol just feel really good in the hand to shoot, nice balance and weight to it .It feels like quality! If yo want more specifications and some cloerup video of the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in detail then watch my Table Top Review for the KWC K17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

If you haven’t already watched My Table Top Video Review for the ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver than make sure to do so for the full features and specifications.

My Field Test Shooting videos for blank guns are pretty basic! I can’t test for accuracy since there is no bullet hitting a target and similarly since there is no bullet I can not test the velocity or feet per second power. SO what is there really left to test?

I guess will the blank gun I am testing fire when I pull the trigger? That’s all there is to really test. You may ask why even make a Field Test Shooting Video for a blank gun if you can’t test accuracy and power. I’ll tell you why… Because it’s just fun and it looks good on camera :)

So watch my YouTube video of me popping of some .380 caliber blanks with my ROHM RG-89 .380 Caliber Blank Revolver inside the Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range.

Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Pellet Revolver Field Test Review

No Comments

I’ve already full reviewed the BB version of the Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Revolver so make sure to check both my Table Top and Field Test Shooting Reviews for the Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading BB Revolver.

In this Filed Test Shooting Video Review I test out the Pellet version of the Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Revolver to see how well it performs in the Indoor Airgun Shooting Range. I first put 5 shots through my Chronograph to see what the real world fps is and then I shoot a full cylinder of pellets at my paper target setup 30 feet down range so we can get an idea on how accurate the Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Pellet Revolver really is.

For my Chronograph velocity portion of this test I used a brand new CO2 with 8.18 grain Sig Sauer lead pellets, the indoor temperature was around 18 degrees Celsius or 64 degrees Fahrenheit. My Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Pellet Revolver was about to average 351 fps with fairly heavy lead pellets, not bad! IN warmer conditions or using lower weight higher velocity pellets I am sure the fps will get up and over 400 feet per second.

Next I reloaded the 6 round cylinder with the same 8.18 grain Sig Sauer lead pellets and placed them in on target 30 feet down range. I was shooting in Single Action for best accuracy and also using a rested seated shooting position with a sand bag up front to rest my hands on. I was very impressed with who well centered the Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Pellet Revolver shot, I even got 3 rounds right in the bullseye, 3 of the rounds go outside the bullseye just a bit to the right resulting in about a 2 inch 6 shot grouping. I am sure I could tighten this up with a bit more trigger time using the Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Pellet Revolver

If your looking for a more beefy shell loading revolver than for sure consider the Webley MKVI .455 CO2 Shell Loading Revolver line, both the BB and pellet versions perform well and the break barrel design makes them super easy to reload without even having to take the shells out if you choose not to. Accrued and power is up to par and the over quality is also very good.
