By Daniel from USA on 2012-03-22 11:16:17Things I liked:This is really a finely crafted co2 gun...one of the best from Umarex. Great detail and hard to tell its not a powder burner. Plus, it just looks bad-#%! Don't you agree? The co2 loading is easy and all guns should use this system. Very accurate and easy to shoot well. I put the mount on it (see my review on that) and a red dot. So much fun! Good trigger for a double action. Single action is better. Oh and you get a LOT of shots per cartirdge.
Things I would have changed:I prefer the glossier finish. I've heard they used to come like that. The sights are not target sights, but what you get is more authentic. I wish the wooden grips weren't so pricey! I can get custom made target grips on the 2240 for less.
What others should know:If you're looking to get into these co2 action pistols...this is the one to get.

By Maria from USA on 2012-09-04 19:45:31Things I liked:The gun feels good to hold and looks awesome. It is accurate. I also like Walther's eight shot rotary clips.
Things I would have changed:Well, for an alleged 450 fps I would have expected a little more... power. To make a fair comparison, I have a Walther Nighthawk (400 fps) and a Gamo PT-85 (450 fps). At the same distance where they bury the pellets in a wooden board, this gun barely reaches the target. One side of the handle comes off to allow access to the CO2 cartridge. Getting it off is all fine and dandy, putting it back on, not so much. It'll probably be easier with use, but there HAS to be a better way to do it.
What others should know:When I first ordered my Walther CP88, I got a defective one. It shot sometimes, and when it did I could just as well have tossed the pellet by hand. I mean, the pellets traveled maybe three feet and fell to the ground. Pyramyd Air kindly provided me with a return shipping label and I sent it back. I got the replacement today. When I first tried it I thought, "You've gotta be kidding." It shot, but the pellet bounced off a Shoot-n-see target without even peeling off the paint. I tried shooting an empty soda can, and the pellet made the can wiggle a little. It didn't even get a dent. I shot a few clips and the gun perked up a little. Now it manages to make a hole in a soda can. I guess it works, but I definitely expected more. I really like Walther airguns, and I want to like this one too. I will shoot it a little more, but if it doesn't start working better it'll have to go back.
