Umarex Legends MP40 Submachine Gun
For years the Legends series by Umarex has brought historic firearms to life as airgun replicas for shooting enthusiasts.
Now Umarex has created their very own German MP40 submachine gun replica. This .177 caliber BB rifle promises hours of fun with a 60 round magazine and full auto capability! Powered by two 12 gram CO2 cartridges, simply select full or semi-automatic firing, and mow down tin cans like never before.
The "real steel" MP40 was first developed in 1940 for German paratroopers and later became the standard submachine gun for the Wehrmacht infantry. The Legends MP40 is a faithful replica that will transport you back in time the minute you pick it up. The realism is highlighted by the full metal body and folding shoulder stock. The hooded front sight and adjustable rear sight stay true to the original design and keep your eyes on the prize.
For fans of WWII military arms, this legendary gun can finally be yours!
Please Note: Do not use with Smart Shot BBs as it will cause the airgun to jam. For best results, do not fill more than 40-45 BBs at a time. Overfilling can cause jams.
In the manual, it is stated that you will hear a "pop" noise (CO2 release) when dry firing the gun with just CO2 in the magazine. This is not the case, the magazine must be loaded with both CO2 and BBs for the gun to fire properly.

Things I liked: Like the look, feel and firing action except for the magazines
Things I would have changed: Umarex is aware there is a magazine feed problem and are working on a replacement for it .Maybe give us a notch for clip to make it easier too load
What others should know: Hopefully the new magazines will be here soon and replacement O -rings for them The Mag I have now sticks a lot unless I spray silicon oil into the loading area. As I have said I have had 2 guns and 3 mags so far and the jamming problem is it _ I have sent one of my mags back to Umarex instead of Pyramid Air which is where I got the guns and all 3 mags.
Things I liked: The realism in appearance is top notch on this MP-40. That said, that is where all the good stuff ends at. Loading the 60 BB's into the clip isn't all that easy and is time consuming. It takes two co2 cartridges and it appears that sometimes one does not fully pierce. FPS falls off almost immediately. And from the beginning I have never been able to pop off on full auto all 60 rounds without it misfiring and/or goes into a dry-fire mode. Performance on this is really horrible. The only thing it's got going for it is it's looks. I recommend getting a book and look at it's picture there.
Things I would have changed: performance
What others should know: not a good buy but pretty to look at.
Things I liked: This is a fun gun !!! Ive put over 3000 bbs thru it .. only hitch was copperheads wouldnt work... Daisy premium worked flawlessly It does chew thri CO2 tho so stock up!
Things I would have changed: Loading bbs is a pain .. a bit bigger finger catch for the slide would fix

Can the front sling mount be rotated from the left side to the right side? The picture on the bundled version with the sling shows right side and the regular picture shows left side. How do you flip it?
These MP 40's were incorrectly assembled with the forward sling ring on the same side as the bolt, which is incorrect. I found this video, (Unfortunately only in German, but it visually demonstrates disassembly clearly enough to follow) that shows how to disassemble the barrel nut. I was able to rotate the sling ring to the correct side, so now a sling won't tangle up with the bolt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knRhMLp4He8
OK, so I'm a little confused. This rifle will shoot both semi AND full auto. Some are saying that you cannot shoot shorts bursts without jamming? Is that the case?
Had some feeding problems too. Go with less BBs, it helps. Also found that small puff of powdered graphite on several hundred BBs, then a good shake to distribute well, and they feed perfectly. In the case of this type mag and gun the BB slot needs DRY lubrication.
Ok have fired the same gun after second Silicon spray and it stuck on the 6 CO2 load this time on the 1st bb load of 40 at about 10 bbs fired remaining loads ok - have sent the other defective mag back to Umarex- will continue to lube and fire until the good mags show up.
Umarex says it is a mag problem and replacements are coming . I had problems with the first gun and also extra mag I ordered both mags would jam at least once per co2 load when firing 4 times with 40 bbs as recommended by Tyler in auto when firing short bursts to use up the CO2- I sent it back to Pyramyd and kept the extra mag - The 2nd gun worked 3 times before starting to hang same as the first. Tried the extra mag it worked for one cycle but the fit was very tight compared to the first gun and it was very hard to put in and release - it damaged the O-ring on the top of the mag so its going back to Umarex when the new good mags show up. So I sprayed the bb area with Evike Silicon non petroluem and got 8 CO2 loads flawlessly then it started to hang again so I sprayed again and so far good for 2 loads of co2 will keep going to see how this works out_ Umarex said ok
There have been some initial differences in performance from gun to gun. But my findings have been that if you don't fill the mag past 40 BBs, the gun doesn't jam in full auto, whether you do a full mag dump or burst fire. I have read other reports where folks say they cannot shoot any bursts without jams, and others where they get hang ups with less BBs in the mag.
The first three times I loaded the CO2 cartridges I noticed that the first one going in was not being punctured even though the screw was in tight. It would only successfully puncture the second cartridge. I finally solved this problem by inserting a leather disc between the two cylinders. Do I need to send the magazine to Umarex or is my solution acceptable inasmuch it will not damage the magazine? The rifle is otherwise a hoot to shoot.
Your solution shouldn't damage anything, but I would still contact Umarex and see if you can get it replaced or get a spare under warranty.
