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
Things I liked:First let me start by saying I have a love hate relationship with this gun. I love the way it looks and the way it feels in the hand. The build quality, looks-wise, is great and it's very realistic. It has good weight to it and has some nice features like the decocking mechanism and drop-out "magazine" that holds the CO2 cartridge, which makes it not really a magazine.
Things I would have changed:Here's what I hate about it: I didn't like the "magazine" release. It just felt like it was going to break off every time I used it. The trigger is awful. DA is long and creepy with no distinct break point. SA is a lot better, but pulling back the slide to cock it is very difficult, at least it was on the one I had. The reason I say had, before I even had a chance to try shooting it, the front part of the slide jammed in the opened position. I sent it back and replaced it with a CP88 which has proven to be much better for me.
What others should know:I was very disappointed with the CP99 that I received because I really wanted to like it. Pyramyd Air is extremely helpful both before and after the sale. Returns and exchanges are trouble-free. They're a pleasure to deal with.
