What’s going on next week?

I will be away competing in a Body Building Fitness Contest so there will not be any more videos that week.

You may have noticed I have been withering away this past couple of months. This is in preparation for a Fitness Contest I am going into. For a show like this you need to be super lean to be competitive.

I have been competing since 2015 mainly in Men’s Physique and have qualified myself over the years to compete at the National level in Amateur Body Building.

The competition I am going to is the GNC / ALLMAX Canadian National Pro Qualifier in Toronto. If I do really well I can possibly get an IFBB Pro Card. Getting an IFBB Pro Card means I would now be able to compete in Pro Body Building competitions.

In order to win the Pro Card I would need to win my hight class and then win the overalls against the other winners in their hight class.

To date I have come close to winning the IFFB Pro Card but just missed it on two occasions. I am hoping to get the IFBB Pro Card this times around but I know the competition will be very competitive.

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 T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Paintball Rifle.
Manufacturer: Umarex - T4E.
Model: H&K 416.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 3016 grams (6.65 pounds).
Barrel: Metal smooth bore.
Power Source: 1x12 gram CO2.
Action: Semi-Automatic with internal working bolt blowback action.
Ammo Type: .43 Caliber Paintball or Rubber Ball.
Ammo Capacity: 14 Rounds.
FPS: 330-460?

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle is pretty typical of what you would find on an AR styled rifle. Since the internal bolt cycles with each shot, the trigger is engaged and the Paintball rifle is ready for the next shot with a very light and short single action trigger pull.

Accuracy: So far I have not had the opportunity to test the Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle other than placing a few rounds down range into my ammo trap to see how it shot and felt. Without actually shooting rounds through the Chronograph I don’t really know what the fps velocity is going to be but I can say it felt like it was shooting perhaps even over 400 fps? Out of the box the Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle was shooting rather low but you can adjust the rear sight for windage and elevation.

Build Quality: The build quality of the Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle is very good since this Paintball gun is made for military and law enforcement training use. You’re going to find high quality metal and polymer where you would normally find them on the real steel version. The bolt carrier is expected to last at least 3000 shots but you do get an extra one included with it.

Realism: The fully licensed Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle is about as realistic as you are going to get in a Paintball Rifle. It’s basically made very similar to a GBB Airsoft Rifle of the same type with a working bolt and pretty much all working parts on it. You can even break the Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle down into the lower and upper receiver halves. The bolt blowback action is not super strong but this may be a good thing since CO2 usage will be more efficient allowing for higher fps and more shots per CO2.

Purchase it from the Canada Replica Airguns Store or the US Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Seem to have decent fps, will see when I do my Field Test?

  • Full Size drop out magazine that holds 14 .43 caliber Paintballs and the CO2.

  • Removable 4 position adjustable stock.

  • Removable and adjustable iron sights.

  • Lots of rials for adding accessories.

  • Fully licensed H&K 4116 replica via Umarex.

  • Blowback does give a bit of recoil feedback and allow for a true single action trigger.

  • Very high quality metaled polymer build.

  • Used as a training weapon for military and law enforcement.

  • Comes with extra bolt carrier.

Cons:

  • Very expensive, well over $1000!!

  • Comes with blue hardware but can be swapped out (Pistol grip, But stock, Magazine).

  • Bolt carrier may wear out at around 3000 rounds.

Comments:

If’ you’re looking for the ultimate in Paintball Rifle realism the Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle is going to meet that requirement for sure. It will come at a pretty decent cost but you are going to have a very unique Airgun that not many people will own. And as they say you do get what you pay for which is realism, quality and reliability. I look forward to testing out the Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle on the Chronograph using some rubber ball ammo, I may even take it outside for some paintball ammo shooting, we will have to see…

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.

Umarex Glock 17 4th Gen CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Blowback CO2 BB Pistol.
Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex.
Model: Glock 17 Gen 4.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 1.7 pounds (771 grams).
Barrel: 3.6 inches metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, single action only trigger.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 18 round drop out full size metal magazine.
FPS: Claimed 300.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is single action only so you will need to rack the slide first to not only chamber a 4.5mm Steel BB in the breach area but to also cock the internal striker. There is a working trigger safety on the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol and you’ll also find the Glock 17 Gen 4 has a nice short and light trigger as you would expect similar to the real steel Glock. Perfect for fast action shooting!

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol so I can only quote what Umarex is saying in terms of FP2 which is 300. That sounds reasonable based on other Airguns like this that have that full blowback action since much of the CO2 gas is used to work the action of the slide. This not only reduces how many shots you can expect o get out of a single 12 gram CO2 cartridge but a reduction in power over non-blowback or even partial blowback CO2 Airguns.

Build Quality: The Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol looks to be well made overall with metal and plastic parts where you would find them on a real steel Glock 17 Gen 4. Fit and finish are nice and the slide wiggle is next to zero. The slide spring is very heavy and the sound of the slide when racked and released does not have that cheap metallic sound some blowback Airguns have. I am expecting some pretty decent blowback action recoil from the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol when I do my Field Test Shooting Review!

Realism: The Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol 100% looks the part of a Glock 17 4th Generation, sitting on the table and even holding it in your hand you are going to think it's the real deal until of course you drop the magazine and see that it is a BB/CO2 mag. Mostly everything operates like a real Glock 17 including the slide catch release, trigger safety, magazine release and even the take down switches for quick field stripping and access to the adjustable hop-up, yes it is adjustable.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

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

  • Really nice looking and full featured replica of the original Glock 17 Gen 4.

  • Fully Glock licensed through Umarex.

  • Easy to see white dot sights front and back.

  • Recessed barrel for added realism.

  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.

  • Full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and 18 4.5mm steel BB’s.

  • Slide spring feels heavier than most full blowback Airguns, should have a heavy blowback recoil effect.

  • Safety built into the serial number plate area keeps it well hidden.

  • Comes with additional Backstraps for different sized hands.

  • Warning instruction are nice and discreet under trigger guard.

  • Great feeling single action only trigger as the blowback pre-cocks the internal hammer/strike.

  • 300 fps is decent for a full blowback BB gun.

Cons:

  • FPS could be higher but fairly inline with other full blowback CO2 air pistols.

  • Sight are non-adjustable which is common with low cost Airguns like this one.

  • Would have liked to have seen more pristine packaging from Glock..

Comments:

I know everyone has been waiting for Umarex to release the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol and here it is finally, does it live up to all the hype and excitement? So far without shooting it I have to say yes, I am very pleased with how the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol looks and feels. There is not too much more you can ask for in a replica Airgun of any kind… it looks like the real steel version, it feels like there real steel version, it functions like there real steel version. Hopefully it shoots just as well! If you haven’t bought one of the Umarex Glocks so far then this one is the one to have, but I say why not have them all :)

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!

Should I buy KWC or Another Brands Version?

No Comments

The question comes up often about which Airgun to buy. Customers are wondering when they are looking at a specific Airgun and they see several similar products but from different companies, are they the same gun and if so which one should they decide to buy?

One of the biggest Airgun suppliers out there is for sure KWC, their BB and Airsoft guns are redistributed through companies like Umarex, Crosman, Sig Sauer, ASG, Gletcher and more. Often times the companies that redistribute KWC Airguns hold licensing agreements with real gun manufacturers like Smith & Wesson, Glock, Colt, Beretta, Sig Sauer, Taurus to name a few… KWC makes the Airguns in their Taiwanese factory but they are not allowed to put a real gun manufacturer license on the Airguns they distribute directly so KWC distributed Airguns will generally be all black.

I have also seen companies like Umarex distribute a new KWC Airgun that I have not seen yet from KWC, I believe KWC works with these big name Airgun companies directly and will build a new gun or variation of an existing KWC Airgun for them and give that Company an exclusive for a period of time. KWC will eventually regain the rights to sell that Airgun model directly after 6 months to a year.

Now that you know a little bit more on how it all works let’s get back to whether you should buy a KWC branded Airgun or other Brands same Airgun. It really comes down to I would say three factors. Do you want a Licensed version of the Airgun you are buying? Is there a price difference? Which gun is available to buy when I am ready to buy?

When you buy the Licensed version of the KWC Airgun redistributed through a third part Airgun Company you will often get a lot more writing on the Airgun than just the Gun Manufacturers name. Warning information comes to mind and does not look all that attractive on the slide where it is usually found in bright white lettering. If you like a cleaner look and don’t mind the lack of licensing then the KWC distributed version will generally be all back, nice and clean looking.

You would think buying the KWC Version that is sold more directly to the end customer would be the less expensive of the options because less hands are involved in the selling process. This is not always true, it is more about supply and demand, if more people want the cleaner looking KWC version but it’s harder to get ahold of than the price of the KWC version may actually be higher than say the Umarex or Crosman version. So shop around if price is the deciding factor as the guns are going to be mechanically the same with just some slight cosmetic differences between them.

Lastly, availability maybe what eventually leads you to buy a KWC version over an Umarex, or Crosman or Sig version since if the gun is not in stock well you may have limited options and so the one in stock is going to be perhaps your only option! Don’t feel like you got short changed, again these guns are virtually all the same at the end of the day no matter if you buy it from KWC, Umarex, Crosman, Sig Sauer, ASG, Gletcher or whomever.

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.

Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

1 Comment

Type: BB air pistol.
Distributer: Umarex.
Model:Beretta M9A3.
Materials: Metal and polymer build.
Weight: 1.9 pounds (861 grams).
Barrel: 4.5 inches metal, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi and full auto blowback, single and double action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 18 rounds.
FPS: 330.

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.

Available at the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Your choice of shooting in either semi auto or full auto mode.

  • Really nice replica of the original real steel Beretta M9A1.

  • Great weight and feel to it. Not too heavy!

  • High quality metal and polymer design, fit and finish is very good.

  • Strong slide spring so has nice crisp blowback action.

  • Realistic working safety and working slide catch release.

  • Full size dropout metal magazine that holds BB's and CO2.

  • Can be field stripped like original Beretta M9A3.

  • Fully Beretta licensed.

  • Can put a mock suppressor on it.

  • Really a great looking airgun!

Cons:

  • Will eat CO2 especially in full auto mode.

  • None adjustable sights but the front sight is removable.

  • Typical Umarex ugly white warning instruction on the slide.

Comments:

If you’re a Beretta fan then I think you are really going to want to pick one of these Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistols, even if you are lady have a different version. The new Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is by far one of the best to date in terms of getting it all right. You get all the typical Full Blowback features like a working slide catch release and magazine release, an ambidextrous safety, full size drop out metal magazine that hods the CO2 and 18 4.5mm Steel BB's. On top of all of this you also have a threaded barrel tip for adding a mock suppressor and the Authentic FDE Color Scheme that really makes the Umarex Beretta M9A3 Full Auto CO2 Blowback BB Pistol a real looker!

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!

Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle Field Test Review

No Comments

Third time is a charm or so they say? Now that we are on the third version of the Umarex “Steel” series of BB CO2 Blowback Semi and 6 Round Burst Air Rifles what can we take away from this Field Test Shooting Video? Does the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle measure up to its predecessors? Without a full on spoiler alert I would have to say the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle did not let me down…

Starting off with the Chronograph Velocity portion of my Indoor Sea Can Airgun Shooting Test, things did not start off so good, first shot out of the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle was below 200 fps? I think this is because the duel CO2 system needs a least a couple of shots to get primed up because the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle only seemed to get better with each shot which is the opposite of what happens with most CO2 Airguns. After several shots the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle seemed to settle into a nice 390 fps range and the temperature was only 18 degree Celsius or 64 degrees Fahrenheit. In warmer conditions I would expect to get at least the 400 fps claimed by Umarex.

Moving onto the accuracy portion of the Field Test Shooting Review for the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle, I was very pleased with the results. Placing 10 semi auto shots 30 feet down range into my paper target using a rested seated position I was able to get just under a 1 inch grouping. And this was using the built-in flip up none adjustable peep sights which I do fins a little bit hard to use with my aging eyes… The Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle even shot well centred just a little bit low and slightly to the left but very close to the bullseye. When I flipped the selector switch to 6 round burst things did spread out a bit but this was mainly because of the vibration that caused me to pull the gun to the right with each 6 round burst.

At the end of the day the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle is a really fun CO2 Blowback “full Auto” BB Rifle that has a crazy 6 round burst rate of fire and shoots pretty hard with good accuracy. You get all of this at a pretty affordable price. Are there other Full auto capable BB rifles that look a little bit better than the Steel Strike? I’m thinking about the Crosman DPMS SBR… Sure but in terms of performance the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle isn not lacking anything in this department. It may depend on your budget and if you’re simple just looking for a fun full auto CO2 BB rifle at the end of the day.

Umarex Steel Strike CO2 Blowback BB Rifle Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: BB Machine Gun/Rifle.
Manufacturer: Umarex USA.
Model: Steel Strike  (AR Platform).
Materials: Plastic shell with internal metal parts.
Weight: 3.8 pounds (1720 grams).
Barrel: 9 inch Metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 2 (housed in b uffer tube)
Action: Semi and 6 round burst blowback, single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 900/30 round drop out hopper/magazine.
FPS: 400.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle is single action only, so you will need to charge the rifle by pulling back the charging handle first, once this is done the trigger is reset and the gun is ready to shoot. The blowback operation charges the internal bolt automatically after each shot so keep this in mind as the gun is going to be live and ready to shoot until you either run out of ammo or CO2. Make sure to place it in safe mode when not in use especially when you have CO2 in the gun.

Accuracy: I have not shot the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle yet but will remaking a Field test Shoting video very soon for it. But for a reference I did shoot the Umarex Steel Froce which is a very similar product and this is how it performed for me:

Shooting the Umarex Steel Force at a target from 30 feet away in a semi rested position using both the semi auto and 6 round burst modes, the Steel Force performed very good getting around a 1.5 inch 10 shot grouping in semi auto and then spreading out a bit in 6 round burst mode which was to be expected, still a respectable grouping. Shots where well centered on the target but I did have the advantage of using a red dot scope, I found when using the none adjustable open sights that come with the Umarex Steel Force that I was shooting under the target at closer ranges. My Chrony testing did not go exactly as planned due to my temperamental Chronograph but I was able to get two shots to read and they average out at 466 fps, well over the 430 claimed fps.

Build Quality: The Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle is mostly plastic on the outside with most of it's metal parts on the inside, pretty much everything you can see on the outside is going to be plastic except for maybe the magazine release and selector switch. The plastic seems durable enough but it has just a bit too much shine for me which I think makes it look less like metal and more like plastic. Everything seemed to function as expected but again I would have liked to have seen a bit more metal, not necessarily the outer shell, but I feel the flash hider, trigger, flip up sights and charging handle could have been made out of metal and would have given this Umarex Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle a bit more weight and balance to it.

Realism: The  Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle is designed on the AR platform and for the most part is about the right size shape and look of an AR 15 / M16 type rifle. Even the selector switch, magazine release, rear adjustable stock and Charging handle function just like a real AR 15! Some parts are molded in just for looks like the bolt release, dust cover and forward assist but at least they look the part. The plastic for me was the real tell here as it kind of looks like plastic where as some plastic guns are really hard to tell they are not metal, but other than that this is a pretty decent replica of an AR Rifle.

Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Decent 400 fps rating.

  • 900 round hopper with 30 shots per magazine fill.

  • Will get a decent amount of shots with its dual CO2 configuration.

  • Removable and 2 position adjustable stock.

  • Flip up sights with optical sight top rail option.

  • Lots of rials for adding on accessories.

  • Not a bad replica of an AR platform gun.

  • Full auto has a very high rate of fire.

  • Internal blowback does give a bit of recoil feedback feel.

  • CO2 in the buffer tube makes more sense?

  • Price point is good for a fun full auto BB rifle.

Cons:

  • Pop up sights are non adjustable.

  • Plastic finish could have been a bit higher grade, like what most Airsoft AR's use.

  • Just a bit more metal would have been nice and added to the overall weight a bit. (Switches, Sights, Charging handle.

  • No sling mounts.

Comments:

The Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle looks to be an improvement over the Steel Storm and Steel Force, I like the new placement of the duel CO2 into the buffer tube and changing the location of the BB’s from the upper receiver and into the drop out magazine which is where we would normally expect them to be. We also get a magazine hopper capacity of up to 900 rounds with the new Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle so no having to refile int for several CO2 swap-outs. I think the overall looks ahed improved and the tighter aperture of the pep sight shoudl make getting BB;s on target with more accuracy a bit easier. I look forward to seeing what kind of performance I get out of the Umarex Steel Strike CO2 BB Rifle when I test it out during my upcoming Field Test Shooting Video.

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!

Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Airsoft pistol.
Distributer: Umarex.
Model: Beretta APX.
Materials: Metal slide polymer frame.
Weight: 1.47 pounds (667 grams).
Barrel: 4.17 inches, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, double action.
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 15 rounds.
FPS: 325.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a little different then that of the real steel APX. On the real steel APX there is actually a trigger safety and the actual gun uses a striker based system with a fairly short reset and take-up. On the Umarex Replica Airsoft version the trigger does not have a built in safety and the reset and take-up are much longer (full length). I have read that both the real steal and Airsoft versions of the APX both have about 6 pounds trigger pulls but I personally felt like the Airsoft version was heavier than that, perhaps because of the  long pull. Overall the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol trigger is acceptable but not my favorite.

Accuracy: I have not shot the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol so far but I have shot the 4.5mm Steel BB version of this CO2 Pistol and it performed well getting pretty much exactly what Umarex claimed for fps so I would expect the Airsfot version to shoot pretty close to 325 fps with .20 gram Airsoft BB’s. Accuracy for the Steel BB version was about 2 inches from 30 feet away with a 10 round group. Generally speaking the same Airsoft version will shoot a bit more open so I am hoping to get somewhere near a 4 inch group with the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol.

Build Quality: Very good, the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol feels heavier than 1.5 pounds in the hand, perhaps because it is a more compact gun. The metal slide, metal stick mag and internal metal parts all help to balance off the polymer frame nicely.  Fit and finish is also good.

Realism: The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol overall is a really close replica to the real steel APX other than the added safety and missing trigger safety. The added safety does not stand out too much and does serve a purpose while the missing trigger safety could of at least been there for show if not an actual working safety. Other than that the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is very close to the Beretta APX with its full licensing, open ejection port, recessed barrel working slide catch release and blowback operation.
Available at the: Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

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

  • Really nice replica of the original Beretta APX in most ways.

  • Working slide catch and release. Will also lock back on last shot.

  • Fully Beretta licensed through umarex.

  • Easy to see white dot sights front and back.

  • Recessed barrel and open ejection port for added realism.

  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.

  • Stick magazine but plate gives the elusion of a full size magazine.

  • Warning instruction are nice and discreet!

  • Comes with two magazines and an additional back strap grip in a different color.

Cons:

  • Trigger is a bit long and perhaps heavier than the real steel APX trigger. It also does not have the trigger safety.

  • Has a stick magazine rather than a full size magazine.

  • Comes with orange tip but can be removed with some work.

Comments:

I like that the Airsoft version of the Beretta APX now comes in a box and also includes not only an extra magazine but also an included grip back strap in an alternate color for those that want a bit of customization. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol feels good in the hand and even thought the trigger is a bit long you can still get off some pretty quick shots since the trigger pull is not too tough. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol makes a fairly economical option for your sidearm in Airsoft battles and if you want more than two magazines than additional magazines are not that expensive and will not weigh you down on the field.

Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

1 Comment

Type: Blowback CO2 BB Pistol.
Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex.
Model: Glock 17 Gen 3.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 1.6 pounds (726 grams).
Barrel: 4 inches metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto blowback, double action only trigger.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 18 round drop out full size metal magazine.
FPS: Claimed 365.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is in a way a single action trigger since the blowback action pre-cocks the internal hammer allowing for a much lighter single action type trigger pull. I call it a a double action trigger mainly because there is an indexing of a BB from the magazine into the breach area every time you pull the trigger which means the take up is long and there is a little bit of friction from the mechanical mechanism that indexes a BB.

Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol so I can only quote what Umarex is saying in terms of FP2 which is 365. That's sounds reasonable based on other similar guns like this that have that parcial blowback action and BB indexing system to allow for a more sealed system. We will find out when I perform my Field Test Shooting video for the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol shortly.

Build Quality: The Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol seems well made overall, Fit and finish are nice and slide wiggle is minimal. There is a bit of a clanky sound when the slide cycles but since pretty much all of these types of airguns are made out of pot metal with a high con ten of zinc alloy this is kind of expected.

Realism: The Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol absolutely looks the part of a Glock 17 3rd Generation, sitting on the table and even holding it in your hand you are going to think it's the real deal until of course you drop the magazine and see that it is a Co2 mag. Mostly everything operates like a real Glock 17 but the slide is not a full blowback meaning it only goes back about 3/4 as much as a real Glock 17 slide would. One other noticeable difference is the ability to quickly field strip the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, you will need to remove a pin since the take down tabs are non functioning and moulded into the frame.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

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

  • Really nice looking replica of the original Glock 17 Gen 3.

  • Fully Glock licensed.

  • Easy to see white dot sights front and back.

  • Recessed barrel for added realism.

  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.

  • Full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and 18 4.5mm steel BB’s.

  • Safety built into the serial number plate area keeps it well hidden. 

  • Warning instruction are nice and discreet under trigger guard

  • Not bad feeling double action only trigger as the blowback pre-cocks the internal hammer/strike.

  • 365 fps is decent for a blowback BB gun.

Cons:

  • Does have blowback action but not full blowback.

  • Slide sound is a bit clanky.

  • Sight are non-adjustable which is common with low cost airguns like this one.

  • Would have liked to have seen more pristine packaging from Glock.

Comments:

Since there release of the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol we have all been waiting for a blowback version and now we have it in the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol! Defiantly another step in the right direction when it comes to a Licensed Glock. Am I looking forward to the Glock 17 Gen 4 Blowback BB Pistol, sure but if you’re a Glock fan why not have them all and this version will get you a bit higher fps and more shots per CO2 while still offering blowback action with a decent trigger!

Glock BB and Airsoft Pistol Preview

No Comments

In this YouTube Preview Video I show off three new Glock and Glock-like Air Pistols. Two of them are from Umarex and are Glock Licensed, one being a GGB Airsoft Pistol and the other is a CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. I also show an unlicensed Glock-like CO2 Blowback BB Pistol from KWC that kind of looks like a glock but has several key differences that do make it deviate a fair amount from that of a true Glock pistol.

Starting with the KWC 17. At first glance you may think it looks a lot like a Glock but on closer inspection it has the following differences: Notched out trigger guard, extended thumb guard or beaver tail, straight pistol grip with no finger indents, cut out on slide, slide serration on front. The KWC 17 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a full blowback Airgun with a full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and 17 rods of 4.5mm steel BB’s. You can expect to get around 330 fps for it.

Another Blowback CO2 BB Glock is the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol which is fully Glock licensed and also features a full size drop out metal magazine that hold 18 4.5mm steel BB’s. The Glock 17 Gen 3 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is a partial blowback Airgun so you can expect a little bit higher velocity of around 365 fps and additional shots per CO2.

Lastly I show you the Umarex Glock 17 Gen 4 GBB Airsoft Pistol, another fully Glock Licensed airgun with full blowback operation and a full size drop out metal magazine that holds 20 6mm plastic Airsfot BB’s and the either Green Gas or Propane Gas. Velocity will be around 300 fps on this one.

Pickup one of these Glock and Glock-like Airguns form either our Canada or US online Replica Airgun stores!

Umarex SHOT Show 2019 Interview

No Comments

This year at SHOT Show Las Vegas 2019 Umarex introduced some new Glock's, a New Beretta and a new Pellet Rifle which unfortunately was not brought to my attention when I did my Interview so sorry now coverage of the Ruger 10/22 CO2 Pellet Rifle :(

Starting with two new CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Glocks, Umarex now has a Glock 17 Generation 3 partial blowback CO2 BB Glock with a full size drop out metal magazine. This setup will increase the fps a bit since it uses the more efficient partial blowback system. If you would rather have a full Blowback CO2 BB Glock then Umarex has it in a Glock 17 Generation 4 version that functions pretty much like a traditional Airsoft Blowback gun but instead this one uses 4.5mm steel BB’s.

In terms of Blowback Airsoft Glocks Umarex has a two Glock 17’s, yo can get them in generation 3 or 4 an both are full blowback with full size drop out metal magazines.

Umarex introduced a really nice M9A3 Beretta this year at SHOT Show 2019. The Umarex Beretta M9A3 comes in the FDE color scheme and has an extended threaded barrel that should be able to take a much suppressor. The Beretta M9A3 is full blowback with a full size dropout metal magazine and can be shot in semi or full auto.

Now for the Umarex Ruger 10/22 Pellet Rifle I completely missed at the Umarex booth… Well if you didin’t know there was a pellet version of this rifle you would be hard pressed to be abel to tell the difference between it and the real 22LR version! The Umarex Ruger 10/22 Pellet Rifle utilizes twin 12 gram CO2 cartridges to fire .177 caliber pellets. It has a 10 round drop out magazine with interchangeable rotary nmagzines that can be pre-loaded. And yes the Umarex Ruger 10/22 Pellet Rifle is a blowback Airgun!

My Favorite Air Rifles of 2018

1 Comment

Here we go again with another Favorite Airgun Video of 2018, this time I show you my Air Rifle Favorites! There are usually a lot less Air Rifles that come out than Air Pistols but this year was’t too bad for new and interesting Ari Rifles. As per usually there where more 4.5mm Steel BB Rifles and I am sorry to say nothing really came out at least in the Replica Air Rifle department but of course there where 6mm Airsoft rifles too.

I do mainly focus on the 4.5mm BB rifles but throw in the group a very well made and ultra realistic Airsoft Rifle that was for sure in this years Top Five!

First up on my list but not in any particular order was the Gletcher Military Precision M1944 BB Rifle styled after the Russian made Mosin Nagant. Other than the Sawn Off version the Gletcher Military Precision M1944 BB Rifle is the only CO2 Bolt Action 4.5.mm Steel BB Air Rifle you can get as far as I know. It is ultra realistic and looks the part of the real Mosin Nagant right down to the metal working Bayonet.

Next in this video I take a look at what I can say was my number one pick this year, the Crosman DPMS SBR Steel BB Rifle! When Crosman announced the Crosman DPMS SBR Steel BB Rifle at SHOT Show I was a bit surprised since Crosman is not known best for their Replica Airguns. Not only did Crosman decide to come out with an M4 Replica Air Rifle but they in fact made what I believe is the best one out there at least in 4.5mm Steel BB. It covers all the check boxes I am looking for. It’s very well made, shoots in semi and full auto with a working internal blowback bolt. All the mechanical parts work in the same way as a real M4 including being able to take apart the upper and lower receivers. I really hope Crosman took note of how popular this style of Airgun is and keeps making more product like the Crosman DPMS SBR Steel BB Rifle.

Another 4.5mm Steel BB M4 Replica that came out in 2018 is the Air Venturi HellBoy CO2 BB M4 Air Rifle. The HellBoy may not be as full featured as the Crosman DPMS SBR but it is worthy of this years Top Five. The Air Venturi HellBoy CO2 BB M4 Air Rifle is similar to how the Cybergun AK 47 BB rifles are built, using a magazine design that is basically the bulk of the working mechanism, it hold the CO2, CO2 Valve, BB’s, and even part of the trigger mechanism. The Air Venturi HellBoy CO2 BB M4 Air Rifle may not be as ultra realistic as the Crosman DPMS SBR but it’s an excellent full metal M4 Replica with decent shooting performance.

My only Airsoft contribution to this years list is the KWA LM4 RIS PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifle. I just love this Airsoft Rifle, It may not be the cheapest M4 GBB Airsoft Rifle out there but it sure is worth it. When you pick it up it just feels like quality and when you shoot it you know it’s quality, the shooting performance is awesome for a GBB Rifle. I barely noticed any cool down even when shooting off the entire magazine in full auto. If you want the most realistic M4 Air Rfile out there than the KWA LM4 RIS PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifle is going to be the one.

Last up to showcase in this years Favorite Air Rifles is the Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Weathered Submachine Gun. I know the Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Submachine Gun kinda came out last year but I did not get my hands on the Weathered version till only recently so I decided to put it in this years Top Five pick. The Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Submachine Gun is another fine 4.5mm Steel BB Rifle in this case it’s more of a Submachine Gun. The Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Submachine Gun also offers semi and full auto select fire and is a very close replace to the real steel MP40 in almost every way. The Weathered Finish and included Leather Sling really finish it off to make it super believable.
