  • coleen from USA asked:

    my smith & Wesson m&p 40 blow back is jammed with a bb in the barrel. I watched a tutorial on cleaning and that's when it jammed on me. the bb wont come out of the barrel at all.

    • jose from USA asked:

      How many shoots per co2 cylinder?

      • jose from USA asked:

        mine dropped the silver tape that came in the slide (inside), this affects its operation? Where can i buy another slide?

        • coleen from USA:

          my Metallic slide sticker fell off mine the first day. now my barell jams with 3 bbs

        • jose from USA:

          I asked them and they send me a new one slide and barrel just for free. Im very thankful!

        • Tyler from USA:

          If they are available, Umarex USA would be the only place to get them

      • Alan from USA asked:

        Can anyone tell me why Umarex always says that CO2 problems with this gun are because we don't use their CO2? Does anyone use Crosman CO2 in it succesesfully?

        • Alan from USA:

          This is sort of an answer to my own question. Ipurchased this gun and have been using Crosman CO2 in it without any issues. I'm using Copperhead bb's too.

      • Ricky from USA asked:

        Will the M&P40 shoot pellets

      • Joe from USA asked:

        I recently received my new mp40 only shot it twice and the mag started leaying gas I like the gun but I will return this item why is this occurring I have heard other people with the same issue on this type of mag .

        • Alan from USA:

          I think it's a quality control issue. It happened to me too. If Umarex doesn't step up soon and fix the issues with this pistol, we are all going to forget about getting one!

      • mark from USA asked:

        is the magazine release reversible for left handers?

        • Alan from USA:


      • Dmitry from USA asked:

        My MP 40 has several problems: When i cock it the slede often does not move back all the way Same is when i shoot: it either wont move back all the way or pretty much every other shot is empty I have shot Daisy bbs, Umarex bbs but its the same problem. Did anyone ran into similar issue? The problem is- it was a gift and i don't have a reciept. I only had it for a month, and this issue came up after 3rd or forth clip.What would u suggest?

        • Alan from USA:

          It sounds like you have a defective gun. Return it for another one.

      • Christopher from USA asked:

        How do I get this gun in dark earth color??

        • GMS from USA:

          You wait for it to be made, Pyramid Air to get it in stock, then buy it from them.

      • Jason from USA asked:

        Has anyone Chrony'd this pistol to see what it actually shoots at? I'm a little concerned at low fps. 300 is just bearable, but we all know many manufacturers exaggerate the claims a bit.

        • Jaguar from USA:

          Its around 310 fps

      • Tom from USA asked:

        I am looking for a downloadable PDF of the manual for this pistol - PA does not seem to have a link to the manual, and for some strange (?) reason, even the Umarex site does not even list this pistol...?

      • kenneth from USA asked:

        Is there anyway to modify this gun to get more power?

        • Jaguar from USA:

          No, not available at this time

      • Robert from USA asked:

        Ok! Just got mine. Anyone know why the slide release allows the slide to come off in it's normal position.

        • GMS from USA:

          More likely broken.

        • Jaguar from USA:

          The little lever located on the left must be down

      • Guillermo from USA asked:

        How many good shoots ? X cylinder?

        • Markus from USA:

          I've been getting 35 if you space them out! About three full mags if you are really easy and don't mind the drop off at the end.

      • jose from USA asked:

        were can it be found extra mags

      • steven from USA asked:

        can it be field stripped? does the slide lock back when its empty?

        • Jack from Canada:

          Yes and yes

        • Vincent from Canada:

          yes and yes

      • John from USA asked:

        I was told this will be a compact model, is this true?

        • Vincent from Canada:

          its the full size model

        • William from USA:

          I haven't heard that one yet.

      • Ray from USA asked:

        Does KWC manufacture this gun? They have an M&P Blowback model with a Hop-Up system . Does this gun have a Hop Up system? Thanks!!! Ray/USA

        • Eric from USA:

          Actually it does have a hop up. The only steel BB gun I have ever seen with one. There is a screw on the bottom of the barrel and I was able to screw it in a few extra turns and could see the "hop up" moving inside the barrel. This also helped a little with the gun shooting low. Still had to file the front sight down to get it to shoot to point of aim.

        • GMS from USA:

          Umarex gets the trademarks licensed to them, they don't make the guns/products. This most likely is a KWC product, based on the price, and the frequency of leaky mag. complaints plus other problems. Check to see if it's made in Taiwan. I don't have one...yet...but may not ever if they don't fix the issues.

        • Tom from USA:

          This pistol is made by Umarex, with Smith & Wesson licensing...

        • William from USA:

          Not sure if kwc manufactures this gun. But this gun does not have a hop up system as it is a steel bb pistol.

      • jose from USA asked:

        were can I get extra mags fore the gun

        • robert from USA:

          This site has them. Look at accessories

      • David from USA asked:

        Can the gun be field stripped

        • Tom from USA:

          Yes, but mine is VERY "finicky" about it - they need to provide proper field stripping instructions in the manual because it is possible to miss a step and get really "stuck"...
