Is this a good quality air gun?
I've had very good luck with mine, no issues to report yet.
Is the rear sight adjustable?
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.
How many shoots per co2 cylinder?
mine dropped the silver tape that came in the slide (inside), this affects its operation? Where can i buy another slide?
my Metallic slide sticker fell off mine the first day. now my barell jams with 3 bbs
I asked them and they send me a new one slide and barrel just for free. Im very thankful!
If they are available, Umarex USA would be the only place to get them
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?
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.
Will the M&P40 shoot pellets
This shoots BB's only, from a full-size magazine. The pellet version is the M&P45 - https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Smith_Wesson_M_P_45_CO2_Pistol/2458, which uses 8rnd cylindrical discs.
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 .
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!
is the magazine release reversible for left handers?
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?
It sounds like you have a defective gun. Return it for another one.
How do I get this gun in dark earth color??
You wait for it to be made, Pyramid Air to get it in stock, then buy it from them.
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.
Its around 310 fps
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...?
I found this link. I hope it helps. https://files.umarexusa.com/MANUAL-2255053-S&W-M&P40-Blowback-31MAR16-PRINT.pdf
Is there anyway to modify this gun to get more power?
No, not available at this time
Ok! Just got mine. Anyone know why the slide release allows the slide to come off in it's normal position.
More likely broken.
The little lever located on the left must be down
How many good shoots ? X cylinder?
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.
were can it be found extra mags
Available here on pyramid air
can it be field stripped? does the slide lock back when its empty?
Yes and yes
yes and yes
I was told this will be a compact model, is this true?
its the full size model
I haven't heard that one yet.
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
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.
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.
This pistol is made by Umarex, with Smith & Wesson licensing...
Not sure if kwc manufactures this gun. But this gun does not have a hop up system as it is a steel bb pistol.
were can I get extra mags fore the gun
This site has them. Look at accessories
Can the gun be field stripped
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"...
