Things I liked:I bought this to replace a crosman 1008 RepeatAir that I've had for ~20 years. Paul Capello's review helped me decide. The weight, finish, and balance are excellent. The internals and slide are metal and the grip is plastic. The plastic used is high quality like that used in my P3. There is nothing on this pistol that feels cheap. Even the pellet clips are metal. The co2 clip is easy to load & the drop-out-of-the-grip mechanism is pretty cool. Accuracy is adequate for a co2 repeater. (If I want accuracy I'll use my Beeman P3). I got about 90 rounds from the first co2 cart. (Not rapid continuous firing)
Things I would have changed:The safety. It's on the right side on the gun but not easy to operate with your right hand.
What others should know:The metal clip is a little hard to fully seat RWS hobby pellets into without using a seating tool. The softer Crosman premier 7.9's are easier. If the pellets aren't fully seated in the clips, the revolver mechanism doesn't advance the clip properly and it effectively "jams". When changing the backstrap be careful not to lose the Co2 clip spring. It's a little trickier to change then Capello's video showed. The manual says to use wadcutter or domed pellets. I have an RSW sampler pack. The superdomes, meisterkugeln, hobby and super H points were fine. The super points don't fit in the clip- they're too long.
Things I liked:This bicolor Walther CP99 CO2 pellet pistol is another very good replica by Umarex. While it is not an exact replica, this CP99 with the nickel slide closely resembles the original bicolor Walther P99. With so many airgun pistols being all black, I really like the bicolor appearance of this gun. The CP99 has a very comfortable weight, neither too light or too heavy. The CP99 shoots very easily in both single action and double action modes. When the rear half of the nickel slide is used to cock the pistol, the single action trigger pull is very light and short, and the break point is very crisp. While the double action trigger is a little heavier and longer to the break point, the trigger pull feels very smooth. I also like that the resting trigger position is different in both single action and double action modes. When un-cocked (double action), the bottom of the trigger is directly above the highpoint in the trigger guard. When cocked (single action), the bottom of the trigger is positioned back by the magazine release. The benefit of this feature is that you can tell at a glance whether or not the gun is cocked. The shot accuracy is very good in both single action and double action shooting. After a small windage adjustment, I was able to consistently hit 2 inch shot spots with groupings of less than 1 1/2 inches.
Things I would have changed:Umarex should have put white dots on the sights. I put some pieces of white paper labels on the sights to make them easier to see against dark targets. Although the rear sight is adjustable for windage, the adjustment screws are only accessible from the underside of the rear slide. A small set screw on top of the rear sight would be better. Because the spring on the rear slide is rather strong, Umarex should make the serrations on the rear slide a little more pronounced to improve grip when pulling back on the slide.
What others should know:There's a small screw on the front of the gun below the muzzle that holds the front slide in place. Over time this screw became loose, and the front slide would lock open the next time I opened it to change the magazine. I was able to reclose the slide by first pressing down on the slide release. I then tightened the screw. If you buy this pistol, periodically check the tightness of this screw. These are the pellets I have successfully shot with this pistol: (wadcutters) Crosman Premier Super Match, RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol, RWS Meisterkugeln Rifle, RWS Hobby, RWS R10 Match, RWS Supermag, H&N Sport, H&N Match Pistol, H&N Finale Match Pistol, JSB Match Diabolo Light Weight, (domed) Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum, RWS Superdome, H&N Field Target Trophy, H&N Baracuda, JSB Exact Diabolo, (pointed) Crosman Premier Super Point, RWS Super Point, and H&N Spitzkugel. My shooting tests were performed indoors at 18 feet distance to target from a bench rested position in both single action and double action modes. The smallest single action grouping was 7/8" with both RWS Supermag and H&N Sport. The smallest double action grouping was 5/8" with RWS Meisterkugeln Rifle, RWS Hobby, and Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum. With most of the pellets the double action shot groupings were smaller than the single action shot groupings because I was able to maintain my aim in double action as opposed to breaking my aim to re-cock for each single action shot.
Things I liked:I would like to say that upon receiving the CP99, I was overly impressed. I first said, "Wow" it looks great and very much like the actual P99. Then once I loaded the realistic magazine with the c02, I was like okay-nice...Then I went to my range and sampled it and I fell in love. A great gun!From the single-double shooting options to the laser site addition I love everything! Great Job!!!
Things I would have changed:I wouldn't change anything. Maybe a little lighter trigger action but no big deal to an experienced shooter! This is definitely not a toy and should not be treated as such! I've done laid out squirrels, a racoon and several crows! I can not believe that its only 360fps-seems like much more...
What others should know:I've found out after using several different brands of pellets, that the Gamo PBA gold and the PBA platinum power pellets gave me the deepest penetration and sound off action. I personally think theyre the best and most effective pellets for the CP99
