Testing the Umarex HK P30 Part 1

Testing the Umarex HK P30 Part 1 Part 2

A perfect Heckler & Koch full-sized training gun

By Dennis Adler

For proficiency training or to get a feel for handling the 9mm model, The Umarex HK P30 CO2 powered version delivers outstanding performance with a 3.35 inch rifled steel barrel. The airgun also fits holsters made for the 9mm P30 like this Blackhawk SERPA Autolock.

Heckler & Koch has always catered to a variety of end users from civilians to military and law enforcement by tailoring certain models in multiple variants, like its P30 Series which is offered in V1, V2 and V3 configurations. Adding to that selection is the new H&K licensed Umarex HK P30 CO2 model. This latest 4.5mm pellet firing semi-auto has its roots firmly planted in the first Umarex 4.5mm CO2 pistol to be adopted as a training gun, the Walther CP99. The HK model is quite a bit more advanced in its design, finish, and operating features, but at its core is the same superbly engineered internal mechanism that has made the CP99 a success for more than 16 years. read more

If you have been collecting blowback action air pistols for any length of time, you probably have some favorites, I know I do, and you probably have a big stack of boxes and accessories. You probably also have a range bag to transport them to the shooting range that holds a couple of guns, a box or two of CO2 cartridges, BBs and pellets. Now, what if you could have four of your favorite blowback action airguns (or CO2 revolvers), shooting glasses, BBs, pellets, and plenty of CO2 cartridges all together in one easy to grab, air tight, water tight storage case that’s ready to go to the shooting range whenever you are? If you have cartridge-firing handguns and go to the shooting range regularly (or are in law enforcement) you probably already have one, but the CaseCruzer Universal Shooting Range 4 Pack Handgun Case is also an ideal all-in-one storage and range case for cartridge firing guns or CO2 powered blowback action airguns. read more

Umarex HK MP5 K

Umarex HK MP5 K

Your Very Own Personal PDW

By Dennis Adler

Umarex started with .22 LR versions of the famous HK MP5, and using similar metal and polymer construction has built the MP5 K PDW in .177 caliber. The airgun has the folding stock and full operating features like the original.
Umarex started with .22 LR versions of the famous HK MP5, and using similar metal and polymer construction has built the MP5 K-PDW in .177 caliber. The airgun has a folding stock (something you can’t have with the .22 caliber MP5 models) and full operating features like the 9mm model.

This is a story that begins with a bang, the sound of a .22 caliber rifle being fired. Over the past seven years the popularity of .22 LR copies of famous military handguns and rifles has grown exponentially as new models have become available, and there are more and more each year, mainly through the ingenious designers and manufactures at Umarex and their licensed reproductions of legendary arms like the Uzi Pistol and Carbine, the HK MP5, Colt AR-15 (and later variations), the HK 416 and Colt 1911 Government Model. It comes as no surprise then that Umarex has also done the same with .177 caliber models in recent years including the famous HK MP5 K-PDW (Personal Defense Weapon). read more
