Things I liked: Has the heft and feel of the real pistol. Good for practice.
Things I would have changed: The safety awkward should be moved to same location as real pistol. the ejection lever is small and very stiff and hard to engage.Front and rear sights are black they need white dots or other sight enhancements.
Things I liked: High shot count, I am getting around 80 shots per CO2 cartridge. Gun seems to like the heavier 8 grain pellets. All I have to use at this time is Wadcutters and Crosman Premier Domed, and these are primarily rifle pellets. Will update this when I can get Pistol Pellets. The construction is excellent. Pistol feels good in my hand and the trigger is very nice in DA and SA. The hard case is a nice plus and the extra backstrap really made the pistol feel good and got my finger trigger at the perfect position, not too far forward and not too far back. The overall impression is of a quality piece that feels like the weapon it replicates.
Things I would have changed: The sights need white dots on them to better see for alignment. I added the dots and now it is alot easier to get the alignment, had to drill alittle indent to put the white paint in but doing so makes it easier so the paint won't rub off. For the price maybe include 1 more magazine. The CO2 cartridge install is something you have to get used to. It takes several tries of tightening and retightening to get the cart pierced. Overall it is a good system, you just have to get used to it.
What others should know: This gun is accurate out to around 30 feet. If you jerk the trigger you will be all over the place. A consistent squeeze and you can pretty much take out the bull at 15-20 feet. The faster you try to fire the faster the CO2 will drop in pressure and you will get jams. Take your time with each shot and you will enjoy this replica hand gun. Another fine piece from Umerx.
Things I liked: This is a solid little shooter with a nice balance in hand. The windage adjustable rear sight is very easy to adjust. When the screws are loosened, the sight moves left and right with click stops, unlike the other Umarex, German-made semi-auto pellet pistols. And unlike those others, it doesn't shoot high, but more to the point of aim. Although the pull of the trigger is long in double action, it's smooth and predictable. In single action it's a quick two stage trigger. Single action is cocked by pulling back the slide. Considering the short barrel, it's a pretty accurate shooter. Loading and piercing the CO2 cart is easy with a magazine that's released by a lever that's part of the trigger guard. Piercing is in a way that I've not encountered before. You'll want to read the manual, and the directions beneath the magazine. All in all, this is a superb replica that's very enjoyable to shoot.
What others should know: It shoots accurate with some of the least expensive wadcutters. Beeman Coated group well.
What's the difference between L sign and pellet sign marked on the right front side of the frame of cp99
I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THIS PISTOL NOT SHOOTING THE EIGHTH PELLET. IT IS LIKE THE TRIGGER IS LOCKED EACH TIME. THE TRIGGER PULL ITSELF DOES NOT SEEM RIGHT. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM AND IS THE TRIGGER PULL WIERD IN YOUR PISTOL?
Specifications say rear sights are adjustable, but mine appear to be molded into the frame. It is an older gun, were those not adjustable?
Pull back the slide and look at the underside at the rearmost area beneath the rear sight. If it has two Phillips-head screws there, the sight can be adjusted by loosening these and moving the sight in the dovetail to make windage adjustment and then re-tightened.
