Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol Table Top Review

1 Comment

Type: Paintball Gun.
Manufacturer: Umarex - T4E.
Model: Walther PPQ M2.
Materials: Metal & Polymer.
Weight: 848 grams (1.87 pounds).
Barrel: Smooth bore.
Power Source: 1x12 gram CO2.
Action: Semi-Automatic with blowback action.
Ammo Type: .43 Caliber Paintball or Rubber Ball.
Ammo Capacity: 9 Rounds.
FPS: 290.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol feels a lot like a double action trigger, internally it may be striker fired so expect a bit of a longer trigger pull with a fairly long reset and a medium strength trigger weight. There is also a working trigger safety which works well.

Accuracy: So far I have not had the opportunity to test the Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol out so stay posted for a future Field Test Shooting video where I will see what kind of fps and accuracy we can expect form the Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol. So far all I have to go on is what I have seen in some other video reviews I have watched, for the most part the Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol performed well.

Build Quality: The build quality of the Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol is really very good, metal parts are where you would expect them, the slide, slide catch, barrel, magazine and most internal parts giving the Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol a nice near 2 pounds (1.87 pounds) of weight with the magazine in which makes the Paintball version a little heavier than the real still version (1.53 pounds) but once the real steal version is loaded with a full mag this may even out a bit. The Walther PPQ M2 does have a polymer frame but again this is normal with todays modern guns and helps keep the weigth down. Fit and finish is also excellent.

Realism: The Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol is a near perfect replica of the real steel Walther PPQ M2, form the fully licensed markings to the large .43 caliber diameter barrel. If you placed the Paintball version side by side with the real steel version I doubt you could tell them apart? You will find that the slide cycle distance is a bit shorter than it shoudl be meaning that when the side catch is engaged the slide does not go as far back as it should. Filed stopping the Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol may requires some tools.

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

Pros:

  • Really great weight and solid feeling gun.

  • Full Metal slide that locks back on the last shot.

  • All metal heavy full size drop out magazine adds some additional weigth to the gun.

  • Very Accurate Walther PPQ replica, almost indistinguishable from the real still version.

  • Everything works pretty much like the real gun so a great training tool.

  • Adjustable yellow dot sights.

  • Working trigger safety.

  • Fit and finish is excellent.

  • Magazine spring release really shoots the magazine out.

  • Love the .43 caliber barrel opening, adds to realism.

Cons:

  • Trigger pull seems a bit long as it shoots like a double action trigger, may be striker fired internally?

  • Magazine only holds 9 rounds, so you are going to need extras.

  • Blowback action is not full blowback, more like a typical BB airgun.

Comments:

I'm really glad to see another Replica Paintball Pistol available in Canada, especially such a well made and realistic version. The Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol looks to be perhaps the best to date .43 caliber Paintball gun on the market and may even prove to be an option for non-lethal personal defense when using rubber balls with it. Not that I would trust my life with it but it sure looks the part and I am sure most people would not want to be on the receiving end of 9 rounds coming at you. As a training tool and Paintball gun the Umarex Walther PPQ M2 .43 Cal. Paintball Pistol offers superb realism for this purpose. I am looking forward to testing mine out shortly :)

SHOT Show 2016 - Umarex Airguns Interview

No Comments

In this 2016 SHOT Show Interview I talk with Nichol Goines from Umarex USA. Nichol and I discuss some new and somewhat revised products from Umarex like the Full Blowback Smith & Wesson M&P40, the soon to finally be released Beretta Model 92 A1, a new Pellet version of last years Colt Single Action Army Revolver and a reappearance and revision of the Walther PPK CO2 Blowback BB pistol.

Last year Umarex introduced their Colt Single Action Army CO2 BB Revolvers and I would say last year they where on of my highlight airguns for the show. They have been selling like gang-busters! One question people have been asking is if there will be a pellet shooting version? Well now there is and like the Steel BB version the pellets load from the back of the shell making it super easy to reload the removable brass shells. The new Pellet SAA Revolver also has a rifled barrel to help with accuracy.

M&

I would have to say this years gun highlight well at least from Umarex is their new Smith & Wesson M&P40 full blowback CO2 BB Pistol. It is a perfect copy of the real steal version complete with a full size drop out magazine and full Beretta licensing. I really hope this one ships soon and does not get delayed like the Beretta Model 92 A1 introduced last year and still yet to be shipped :(

Speaking of the Beretta Model 92 A1 CO2 Blowback BB pistol. It is finally getting released this February and like the S&W M&P40, is a virtual identical replica of the original Beretta Mod. 92 A1 complete with full blowback, a full size drop out magazine and of course all the trades and licensing in all the right locations.

Last and not least but still worth noting is the CO2 Blowback BB shooting Walther PPK. It kind of dropped out of productions which is a real shame since it was the replica BB pistol that got all of this started for me several years back and to this day is still a lot of fun ot shoot! Even James Bond went back to the PPK for the latest 007 movie! Well it's back and this time Umarex got rid of the ugly CO2 tab and replaced it with a discreet Allen key screw. Saves us all from doing the CO2 screw mod :)

Walther CP88 Competition CO2 .177 Caliber Pellet Pistol Field Test Shooting Review

2 Comments

Here is my follow up Shooting Field Test to my Umarex CP88 Competition Table Top Review. During this Field Test Shooting video review I not only shoot my CP88 Competition version but I also compare it to the non Competition CP88 version to see if fps and accuracy are effected when adding the longer barrel? I shoot 5 rounds through my Chronograph with both guns to get an average fps and I also step back 30 feet and setup resting my hands on a sand bag and standing in the back for a fairly secure shooting stance. Since the Umarex Walther CP88's have an 8 shot rotary magazine I went with an 8 shot grouping for my accuracy test from 30 feet.

Overall both guns performed similarly and as expected the longer barrel CP88 Competition had the higher fps with 424 average versus 347 average, but what was surprising was how much faster the CP88 Competiton shot. Right around 80 fps more which is significant considering there is only 2 inches more of added barrel length to the Umarex CP88 Competition version. I am thinking that perhaps my CP88 Competition test model was tuned a bit better at the factory?

When it came to accuracy, both guns performed about the same getting about 1 inch group from 30 feet back. This was not a surprise since barrel length has less effect on accuracy than most people think.

Both guns are a pleasure to shoot and will not only perform great shooting close up but if you go with the higher fps Umarex Walther CP88 Competition you will be able to shoot much further out because of the rifled barrel and decent fps performance.

Umarex PPK 4.5mm Steel BB Modified Full Auto Fun

No Comments

Some more Full Auto Fun Videos coming at you and make sure to check my previous ones out too!

In this Full Auto Fun Field Test Shooting video I bring out my original Umarex Walther PPK Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. The PPK I converted to full auto and that started it all off by being my first YouTube video upload. Wow, that was a while ago now!

I do have to say, modifying the PPK to Full Auto is not recommended, mine originally worked well but the heavy blowback in full auto eventually broke the firing pin setup and I lost it somewhere in my back field. I had to Macgyver a bolt in place to kind of work but now my Full Auto Modded PPK shoots out of control, what I mean by this is when I press the trigger, it does not stop shooting until all the BB's are gone. Safe, I don't think so!

My suggestion is to leave the Umarex Walther PPK as is, it truly is a an awesome CO2 Blowback BB replica with some really decent blowback recoil in a small airgun.

Umarex Walther PPS CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Table Top Review

12 Comments

Type: BB blowback air pistol.
Manufacturer: Umarex.
Model: Walther PPS.
Materials: Metal and plastic.
Weight: 1.3 pounds. (598 grams) 
Barrel: 3 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto, single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 18 round drop out metal stick magazine.
FPS: 360 claimed.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Walther PPS is pretty good overall. This pistol mechanically is very similar to the ASG Bersa BP9CC so it shares a similar trigger system that picks up a BB during the first part of the trigger pull allowing the BB to enter the barrel and then on the second part of the trigger pull the internal hammer is released. The hammer is set in the cocked position from the blowback action so the actual trigger pull is fairly light. You can feel a bit of friction when the BB is being moved into the barrel but it is not drastic. Overall trigger pull length is about medium with a very predictable release point.
Accuracy: I did my pre-test of the Umarex Walther PPS CO2 Blowback BB Pistol from 30 feet back shooting at a paper target using a semi rested position (sand bag up front and standing in the back). My 10 shot grouping was just a bit below the center bulls eye and very well centered left and right All 10 BB's stayed within 2 inches with a nice even spread. The Umarex Walther PPS also shot right around the 360 fps range on this not so warm spring day so I would expect it to hit significantly higher than the claimed 350 fps on hot summer days.

Build Quality: The Umarex Walther PPS for it's rather low retail price is very good quality, again comparable to the ASG Bersa BP9CC since I believe both guns are made in the same factory. Fit is very good, everything works well and the slide has next to no wobble, I especially like the way the allen key is built into the CO2 hatch which allows for no need to a CO2 tab to have to accommodate with a bulkier but plate. The finish is also very nice, I did not see any wear mark appear with use and the plastic used in the frame seems to be very high quality.
Realism: The Umarex Walther PPS BB Pistol is a fully licensed replica of the real steel Walther PPS compact cary pistol. It is an extremely close copy in both looks and feel, has a nice snappy blowback action and has a working slide catch release that hold back when the magazine is empty. The slide movement is shorter than expected but this does allow for better power and CO2 usage, it also would have been nice to have a full size drop out magazine but the stick magazine with it's full size but plate does a nice job of still making this replica Airgun look very believable.
Available in the: Canada Replica Airguns Store & US Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Well priced for what you get in our Canada Store, less cost than the ASG Bersa BP9CC.
  • Nice accuracy, power for such a small short barreled pistol.
  • Really nice replica of the original Walther PPS and fully licensed.
  • Great small size weight and feel to it.
  • Fit and finish is very good.
  • Decent blowback action for such a small pistol.
  • Working slide catch and release.
  • Love the built in Allen Key.
  • Stick mag hits the CO2 screw nicely. 

Cons:

  • Not field strip-able.
  • Only partial blowback action.
  • Has a stick magazine rather than a full size magazine.

Comments:
I really liked the ASG Bersa BP9CC when I review it because it was such a well rounded gun in a very compact and well built design. The Umarex Walther PPS perhaps exceeds the Bersa BP9CC since it is even more compact, seems to have a bit more blowback recoil while still retaining decent fps and accuracy, and the Umarex PPS has a superior design when it comes to the built in allen key for tightening the CO2. You even get all of this for less cost then the ASG BErsa BP9CC. Don't get me wrong, I would not be without either gun, but if I could only have one it would be the Umarex Walther PPS

Umarex Walther PPS and Colt Python 357 CO2 BB Pistol Preview Video

No Comments

In this YouTube Update Video Preview I show you around two brand new Umarex CO2 BB pistols, the Umarex Walther PPS and the Umarex Colt Python 357, both recently added to our online Replica Airguns Store.

The Umarex Walther PPS is a full licensed CO2 BB Blowback replica of the real steel super compact Walther PPS and it compares well to the ASG Bersa BP9CC that I reviewed earlier and by the way ended up being one of my favorite compact air pistols. That said I think the Umarex Walther PPS is the new king! It is even more compact yet has great fps for a super small CO2 pistol, shot very accurate even from 30 feet out and has more blowback recoil than the larger Bersa BP9CC!

Here are some of the specifications for the Walther PPS CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol: 

  • Velocity: 350 fps
  • Length: 6.4”
  • Barrel Length: 3”
  • Weight: 1.2lbs
  • Magazine Capacity: 18 Rounds
  • Power: 12 gram CO2
  • Ammo: 4.5mm Steel BB
  • Material: Metal and Plastic
  • Action: Blowback Single Action Only

Umarex added another shell loading revolver to their collection, the fully licensed Colt Python 357 and again this revolver uses CO2 and shoots 4.5mm Steel BB's that are preloaded into 6 included brass shells. Out of all the 4.5mm shell loading revolvers to date, I have to say the Colt Python 357 is the heaviest coming in at just under 3 pounds. The trigger hammer combination is also very smooth and it has a fully adjustable rear sight for windage and elevation.

Here are some of the specifications for the Colt Python 357 4.5mm BB Revolver:

  • Velocity: 400 fps
  • Length: 11.75”
  • Barrel Length: 5.5”
  • Weight: 2.75lbs
  • Magazine Capacity: 6 Rounds
  • Power: 12 gram CO2
  • Ammo: 4.5mm Steel BB
  • Material: Almost all Metal
  • Action: Single and Double Action

Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Shooting Review

1 Comment

The Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a fairly low cost Airsoft BB pistol but even so, there is no reason why we should expect less than stellar performance from it.

I have already done a pretest for the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol while making my Table Top Review and it shot right around the 333 fps mark, but it was a colder day then. I also shot my Umarex Walther P99 DAO from a much closer 20 foot distance for the pretest and got a respectable 2 inch grouping.

On the actual Field Test Shooting day it was much warmer (tank top weather ;) and so as would be expected, this time my Umarex Walther Airsoft P99 shot a bit quicker at right around a 356 fps average, shooting 10 rounds through my Chronograph. I would expect to get even more fps on an even hotter day as it was only about 22 degrees Celsius or about 72 Fahrenheit on this test day.

Accuracy from 30 feet out was pretty close to my pretest 20 foot testing if you exclude the two flyers but again the Umarex Airsoft P99 version was shooting a bit to the left which unfortunately can not be adjusted other than changing my sight position on the target. I would think the trend to the left will only increase as we shoot further out but this gun is really best suited for close quarters shooting anyways and should have no problems right up to 50 feet shooting a man sized target..

You can expect to get around 100 shots or a good 6 full 15 shot magazines from Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol which should get you nicely through a CQB match without having to change CO2 cartridges. For being a rather low cost Airsoft gun, it did perform well enough for me on this day, keep in mind it does have a firm long pull double action only trigger so really fast shooting will take it's toll on your trigger finger ;)

Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Airsoft Pistol.

Manufacturer: Umarex.

Model: Walther P99 DAO

Materials: Metal & Polymer.

Weight: 1.5 pounds.

Barrel: 4 inches, metal non-rifled.

Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.

Action: Semi auto, double action only with blowback.

Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.

Ammunition Capacity: 15 round stick magazine.

FPS: 380.

Trigger Pull: The Double Action Only trigger pull on the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is long but not overly heavy for a double action trigger, it does have a break point mid way where it locks partway back, I presume this is the point in which a BB is loaded from the magazine into the barrel? The rest of the pull is still medium but much shorter with a distinct release point.

Accuracy: I did do a quick preliminary test before I made this table top review to get an idea of where this gun performs in terms of FPS and accuracy, I shot 5 rounds through my Chronograph on a fresh CO2 and got an average of 333FPS which was a bit lower than the claimed 380 but it was not the hottest of days. I also stepped back 20 feet and from a semi rested position I was able to get 9 shots within 2 inches of each other which was not bad for a DAO gun that I have never shot before. I did shoot a bit down and to the left with the set sights.

Build Quality: The Umarex Walther P99 is well built for its rather low price tag, it may not have all the bells and whistles but it does get the job done with good fit and finish and materials used. You will find a plastic/polymer frame but there is a lot of metal where it would normally be found on the real steel version like in the slide, magazine, trigger, slide catch, magazine release, inner barrel and many other internal parts. No real complaints here!

Realism: The Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is pretty close in looks to a real steel Walther P99 with the exception of a missing decocker, but I'm pretty sure this is the same with the real steel DAO version? There is also the funny looking safety on the right side of the frame found on many Umarex airguns. I have to mention the red tip but again this can be removed and even when removed the barrel it is still recessed which adds to the realism. The Blowback action, Walther licensing and nice heavy weight all add up to make this Airsoft pistol look and feel the part.

Purchase it from: The Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Low cost for a very believable and solid replica.
  • All metal stick magazine.
  • Metal slide and internal parts gives it decent weight.
  • Rail for accessories.
  • Well hidden CO2 screw.
  • Walther licensing.
  • Recessed inner barrel.
  • White dot sights, easy to use.
  • Right amount of power for indoor CQB style airsoft games.

Cons:

  • Comes with a red tip even in Canada.
  • Double action only, so trigger is a bit heavier.
  • Kind of funny safety, not like the real gun.
  • Blowback was a bit sluggish.

Comments:

Overall the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a very good buy, it's a decent replica of the real steel Walther P99 with blowback operation, lots of metal parts, good fit and finish, decent performance and full Walther licensing and trademarks. All at a very affordable price tag. It may lack some of the extras you will find on more expensive and more functional Airsoft pistols but the simplicity of the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol means it will most likely be a bit more reliable with less to go wrong down the road. If you have been looking for a nice Walther styled replica in an Airsoft version this may be just be the ticket!

RAP4 RAM Walther P99 .43 Caliber Blowback Paintball Pistol Review

17 Comments

Type: Paintball Pistol.

Manufacturer:RAP4.

Model:RAP4 RAM P99

Materials: Metal & Polymer.

Weight: 2 pounds.

Barrel: 4 inches, metal non-rifled.

Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.

Action: Semi auto, single & double action with blowback.

Ammunition Type: .43 caliber paintball or rubber bullet.

Ammunition Capacity: 9 round magazine.

FPS: 250-300fps.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Real Action Paintball RAP4 X50 is rather nice in single action, being a true blowback gun, the cycling of the slide not only chambers a round but also pre-cocks the hammer allowing for a very smooth and light single action trigger pull. There is also a working de-cocker that allows you to release the internal hammer. Double action is noticeably heavier but would only really be used on the first shot if you had already used the de-cocker.

Accuracy: After my previous review of the RAM X50 I was expecting this gun to perform pretty much the same. I did find it to be a bit more accurate within the 20-25 foot range using the rubber balls but when I got out into the field and switched over to the Paintballs I found that they where really hooking and darting all over the place? Mind you, this gun was right out of the box and not broken in yet. I also got a bit lower fps (right around 250) out of the RAP4 RAM Walther P99 compared to my RAM X50 but again my review unit had not been adjusted in any way and I imagine I could turn it up a bit to get more fps out of it if I wante to. The plus side is I was able to get an astounding 8 magazines worth of shots out of one CO2.

Build Quality: The RAP4 RAM Walther P99 styled Paintball Pistol is built very well, it does have a polymer frame but the gun overall has lots of metal parts and a very good overall 2 pounds weight to it dry. The blowback action is very snappy and all the mechanics and fit and finish all look and function very nicely. The slide spring is nice and firm giving this paintball gun a snappy recoil and the feel closer to a real gun than that of an airgun.

Realism: The RAP4 RAM Walther P99 was primarily made to simulate real word shooting environments for Police and Military users and even includes Walther branding and licensing, it is a very believable looking and functioning copy of the real steel semi auto pistol it replicates. Other than the exception of the CO2 Cylinder hanging a bit far out of the bottom of the handle. The RAM P99 would be hard to tell from the actual Walther P99, especially when looking down the large .43 caliber barrel. The Blowback action and firm recoil help pull off the believability when shooting this ralistic Paintball Pistol.

Purchase it from:The Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Good weight and solid feeling gun.
  • Full metal slide with nice heavy blowback recoil.
  • All metal heavy 9 round magazines.
  • Very Accurate Walther P99 replica including licensing and trademarks.
  • Everything works pretty much like the real gun so a great training tool.
  • Good accuracy up close and lots of shots per CO2 for such a large round.
  • Nice light single action trigger and working de-cocker.
  • Fairly affordable.

Cons:

  • CO2 cylinder sticks out from the handle and looks a bit odd.
  • Paintball accuracy out at range was unpredictable.
  • Does not field Strip conventionally.

Comments:

This was my second time testing a RAP4 RAM product and again I took the chance to use it as it was intended to be used - in the field going through simulated tactical situations. My targets where barrels this time but they could have been other people with similar paintball guns shooting back at me which would have put even more pressure on me and forced me to really see where my mistakes are being made. That's the whole point of this type of training airgun, make it as real as it can be without your actual life being in danger so that when you are in danger you will not have to think about what you are doing but simply react based on your previous training. I think anyone who is a gun owner wanting to improve their reactive shooting skills should invest in one of these Paintball guns. One day you may thank yourself but let's hope it does not come to that!

Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Added to Canada Store

No Comments

Another Blowback Airsoft pistol added to the Canada Replica Airguns Store and this one won't break the bank!

The Umarex Walther P99, one of Walther's most popular semi auto pistols. This CO2 powered Airsoft version captures the realism with its BLOWBACK, semi-automatic action and full metal slide.

A 12g CO2 cylinder loads in the back of the grip and the Airsoft BB magazine releases with the push of a realistic magazine release lever. The recoil action made live by the power of CO2 kicks the slide back giving you that oh-so-realistic feel. A great pistol for Target, Airsoft Games and owners of the P99 or similar firearms.
  • 6mm Airsoft Plastic BB's
  • CO2 Powered
  • 15 round drop out metal magazine
  • Up to 380 fps
  • 1.5 pounds
  • 7.25 inch length
  • Double action only
  • Blowback
  • Metal slide - polymer frame
  • Tactical Rail Mount
  • Fully Licensed
  • Comes with red tip (Can be removed with a bit of work ;)

Crosman C41 CO2 BB Pistol Review - Walther P38 Replica

2 Comments

Type: BB Air Pistol.
Manufacturer: Crosman.
Model: C41.
Materials: Metal & plasctic.
Weight: 2 pounds.
Barrel: 5.19 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1 (12 gram).
Action: Semi auto double action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 18 rounds.
FPS: 495.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Crosman C42 is surprisingly good for a double action only airgun, it is a tad bit long but the extra length seems to smooth out the trigger pull giving the C41 a light yet predictable trigger pull.
Accuracy: This BB shooter out of the box did not do very well! It did get better over time and I was able to get closer to a 2 inch grouping from 20 feet out in a free standing position. My Crosman C41 had a noticeable amount of oil on the magazine when I got it and if this oil came from the internal parts of the gun, the oil could most certainly effect accuracy and feet per second ratings. I also noticed that the FPS seemed to increase over time which is contradictory to how CO2 generally performs. (Usually FPS lowers as the CO2 gets used up and the gun cools down)

Build Quality: This is a relatively inexpensive air gun to purchase, in most cases an airgun in this price range will be mostly made out of plastic but the C41 is the other way around and is almost all metal! It isn't an overly complicated gun with a lot of moving parts other than the slide and trigger so to speak, but that means there is less to go wrong. This gun is very rugged with the exception of the handle which seems a bit loose but I doubt will cause any problems down the road.
Realism: Although the Crosman C41 is not advertised as a Walther P38 Replica nor is it licensed in any way, it does very closely resemble the Walther P38 semi auto 9mm pistol used in the Second World War. There are some slight differences but overall it is a close copy to the German Walther P38.
Available in the: Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Low price for an all metal gun.
  • Very solid feeling gun.
  • Nice all metal drop out magazine.
  • Nice combination of FPS and accuracy.
  • Excellent CO2 efficiency - over 150 shots per CO2!
  • Not too many World War Two Replicas - nice version of the German Walther P38.
  • CO2 and CO2 tab are nicely hidden.
  • Nice smooth trigger pull for a double action only gun.

Cons:

  • Not a lot of working parts (left side safety and hammer molded into gun).
  • Grips are fairly lose, they don't really snap into open or closed position all that well.
  • FPS did't get that close to the factory claim of 495 FPS - but was increasing over time.
  • Handle may be a bit thick for smaller hands?

Comments:
The Crosman C41 has an excellent combination of FPS, Accuracy and CO2 efficiency with an amazing 150 plus shots per CO2. It is also one of the few older styled replicas available, closly replicating the German made Walther P38 9mm semi auto pistol used in the Second World War making it a great addition to any airgun collection. The Crosman C41 is a very good overall airgun for the money giving you pretty much an all metal airgun that should give you years of enjoyment.

Umarex Walther SG9000 CO2 BB Shotgun Review

11 Comments

Type: CO2 BB Shotgun.
Manufacturer: UmarexUSA.
Model: Walther SG9000.
Materials: Plastic (polymer) and some metal construction.
Weight: 2.35 pounds.
Barrel: 11.5 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x 1 (88 gram).
Action: Semi auto, double action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's
Ammunition Capacity: 40 shot internal spring fed magazine.
FPS: 480 (single shot) - 250 (three shot burst).
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Walther SG 9000 is in the mid range and is a bit long but once you get used to it you can fire off shots very quickly with little resistance. There really aren't any sticky spots in the trigger pull to speak of.

Accuracy: I shot this CO2 BB Shotgun at a target from the hip 20 feet away using my NcSTAR laser sight I installed on it in a free standing position, and it performed excellent getting a 1.5 inch grouping fairly centered on target. I also performed my accuracy test from 30 feet out in a semi-rested position using my 6x32 NcSTAR Scope and again I got a 1.5 inch grouping proving that a BB gun can show decent accuracy even from further out when setup properly. With my Chrony Chronograph testing I scored much higher then the factory claimed feet per second of 480fps in single shot mode and 250fps in three shot burst mode. I ended up getting an average 8 shot fps in single shot mode of 504fps and 309fps in three shot burst mode!
Build Quality: This is an almost all external polymer air gun with some metal components on the inside giving the Walther SG9000 a bit of a light to medium overall weight but once you add the large 88 gram CO2 cartridge and some accessories this gun can quickly gain a pound or two. All four accessory rails are metal along with the trigger. The fit and finish is very good on the SG9000 and the plastic quality seems very durable.

Realism: The Umarex Walther SG9000 is licensed by Walther but other then a similarity in the pistol grip it doesn't closely look like any specific Walther product or any specific Tactical shotgun for that matter. It does have a very tactical look and with a few accessories added you will have yourself a very persuasive looking shotgun on your hands.
Supplied by UmarexUSA - Can be purchased from: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive versatile BB shotgun.
  • Nothing else really like it out there.
  • Multiple shooting modes - singe and three shot burst.
  • Uses 88 Gram CO2 so less stopping to change CO2.
  • Very good FPS readings - above factory claims.
  • Very accurate for a BB gun from close up and further out.
  • Lots of rail locations for all kinds of accessories and different customizable looks.
  • High capacity 40 round internal magazine.
  • Totally fun!

Cons:

  • The plastic exterior may put off some people looking for a heavier more metal gun.
  • 88 Gram CO2 can be a bit pricy, not as cost effective as 12 gram CO2.
  • Trigger pull is kind of long.
  • You will need to purchase some sort of a sighting system for it as all you have is a rail on top.

Comments:
The Umarex Walther SG9000 is a really fun and very inexpensive CO2 BB shotgun. With its multiple shooting modes you have the option of power and accuracy in single shot mode or to simply blow stuff away in three shot burst mode. The Walther SG9000 is also very customizable allowing you to really make this Tactical BB shotgun your own by decking it out with just about any combination of add ons and accessories you like! I found this gun the most fun to shoot in three shot burst mode using my laser sight and literally knocking down everything I pointed at!

Umarex Walther SG9000 and S&W M&P 45 CO2 Airgun Preview

3 Comments

Before I get into my full reviews of the Umarex Walther SG 9000 BB Shotgun and Umarex S&W M&P 45 Air Pistol, I thought I would do a quick Preview so you could get a quick look at both of these fine Umarex products.

A few highlights worth mentioning about each air gun:

  • The Walther SG9000 shoots in both single shot and a 3 shot burst that fires all 3 rounds at exactly the same time, in the same manner that an actual shotgun would simultaneously fire all the buck shot.
  • The Walther SG9000 is capable of 480 fps and uses an 88gram CO2 cartridge so you can refill the 40 rounds spring fed magazine a multitude of times before needing to replace your CO2.
  • The Walther SG9000 does not come with any actual sights so you will need to add either a Red Dot Scope or Laser on to one of the many provided Picatinny rails located on the shotgun.
  • The S&W M&P 45 can shoot in both double action and also single action by pulling the rear portion of the slide back to cock the internal hammer allowing for a very light single action trigger.
  • The Smith & Wesson M&P 45 has a very nice solid weight to it, I was actually surprised at how hefty it was considering it has a mainly all plastic outer shell, my best guess would be close to 2 pounds. I think it's time to invest in a scale!
  • The S&W M&P 45 also has a recessed barrel giving the muzzle the large caliber look of a real 45 auto adding to the realism of this replica gun.

Take a quick look at these two Umarex products in my YouTube video:

Umarex Walther CPSport CO2 Pellet & BB Pistol Review

6 Comments

Type: Pellet air pistol.

Manufacturer: UmarexUSA.

Model: Walther CPSport.

Materials: Plastic (polymer) and metal construction.

Weight: 1.3 pounds.

Barrel: 3.3 inches, metal rifled.

Propulsion: CO2 x 1.

Action: Semi auto, double action only.

Ammunition Type: .177 caliber Pellets

Ammunition Capacity: 8 shot rotary magazine.

FPS: 360.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Walther CPSport is in the mid range with most of the effort at the beginning and middle stages, it does have a predictable release point making it easy to put pellets on target. The CPSport definitely has a lighter trigger then the Umarex Walther PPQ I reviewed earlier.

Accuracy: I shot this air pistol at a target from 20 feet away in a free standing position, and it performed well getting an decent 2 inch grouping just to the left and a bit high on the target. The sights can be adjusted for windage if your aim is off to one side or the other. With Chrony Chronograph testing using 6.9 grain lead pellets I got pretty close to the factory claim of 360fps with an average 8 shot fps of 356.

Build Quality: This is an almost all external polymer air gun with a good deal of metal components on the inside giving the Walther CPSport a decent overall weight and heft. It's worth mentioning that the Walther CPSport has a full size drop out magazine for holding the CO2 cartridge that gives the air gun some additional weight and functionality. The fit and finish is very good on the CPSport and the plastic quality seems very durable.

Realism: The Umarex Walther CPSport is licensed by Walther and is loosely based around the Walther P99. The frame is very similar to the P99 but the slide is not nearly as accurate. If you want to step up to a closer replica of the Walther P99, then you may want to take a look at the Umarex CP99 Pellet pistol.

Purchased this gun in: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Very reasonable price for a well German made full featured airgun.
  • Can shoot BB's with the Umarex rotary BB magazine.
  • Rifled barrel.
  • Easy to use white sights adjustable for windage.
  • Slide catch and safety and magazine are fully functional.
  • Nice full size drop out CO2 magazine.
  • Good combination of power, accuracy and CO2 efficiency (I got about 100 shots from a CO2)!
  • Even though there is a lot of plastic on the outside, there is a lot of metal on the inside giving this airgun some decent weight and heft.
  • An excellent option for the Umarex CP99 customer on a budget.

Cons:

  • The plastic exterior may put off some customers looking for metal guns.
  • The slide could have more detail work on it to make this gun a bit more believable.
  • The small .177 caliber viewable barrel port is a bit of a giveaway in terms of realism but may help a bit with fps.

Comments:

The Umarex Walther CPSport Pellet air pistol is a great combination of quality vs price. Even though this gun uses a lot of plastic in the build it still performed flawlessly and looks the part, I did not have a single misfire out of all the 100 shots I took! All the mechanical parts of this gun work smoothly making for a very enjoyable and accurate gun to shoot, giving the shooter the confidence that this gun will work exactly a it is intended to do.

Umarex Walther CPSport CO2 Pellet Pistol

6 Comments

Recently I reviewed the Umarex Walther PPQ, a new airgun just released by Umarex. The PPQ kind of reminds me of the CPSPort in many ways, but the PPQ is a lower cost version of the CPSport. I think if you have a bit extra money to put into an airgun, go with the Umarex Walther CPSport CO2 Pellet Pistol as you get a much lighter and smoother trigger along with better build quality and a full size drop out CO2 magazine which is a very nice touch.

Look forward to my upcoming full review for this nice Walther Replica Air Pistol, but for now enjoy some photos...
