By Edward from USA on 2013-11-25 03:27:47Things I liked:The pistol is remarkable, a great replica. The blowback feels very authentic. Sliding ramp style sights are useful for adjusting for range.
Things I would have changed:The notch and front blade on the sights are too small- can't get good sight picture.
What others should know:The look, the feel of this gun is wonderful. So far, it shoots well enough, for accuracy.

By Richard from USA on 2013-12-21 00:07:27Things I liked:Sadly, there is not very much I liked about this gun to recommend it. I had been looking forward to a CO2 broom handle Mauser for years and when I saw that Umarex was releasing this I pre-ordered it immediately. I have the Umarex P38, P08 and the PPKs and have been completely satisfied with them all. They are all quality guns made out of metal to a high standard. While this gun does look like a Broom handle Mauser, actually it is modeled after the later M712 Schnellfeuer rather than the earlier C96 . All of the externals of this gun are molded out of a rather cheap looking black plastic. Some of the internals and the parts that make up the magazine are metal. Unlike the recent PO8 Luger, the molding of the details on this gun isn’t very crisp.
Things I would have changed:Just about everything. I was really excited and looking forward to this gun, expecting the same quality as the recent PO8 and the P38 releases. I was very disappointed when I opened the box and saw this gun. The biggest drawback with this gun was the total lack of accuracy. The inner metal BB barrel is unsupported in the larger outer plastic barrel. On my gun the inner barrel was off at an odd angle making it totally inaccurate at even 5 feet. They need to fix this. At one point when I was trying to use this gun I also noticed that the inner barrel was starting to work it’s way out of the gun. When I attempted to push it back in I discovered that the breech block is just a molded rubber block that the barrel is pressed into. The Bolt is also very cheaply made out of thin piece stamped and folded sheet metal.
What others should know:I only had this gun for one day and returned it. In my opinion this gun isn’t even worthy of being called a wall hanger. The gun I received was totally inaccurate. It was made out of a cheap looking plastic. Other reviewers have said that their gun was accurate. I suspect that it is totally luck of the draw if the gun that you receive has the barrel been pressed into the rubber breech block straight or not. Perhaps I was just unlucky and the barrel in my gun was pressed in crooked, maybe others will have better luck than me but I wouldn’t want to gamble another $100 dollars on it though.
