    Things I liked:

    Showed it to an owner of the real McCoy and even he was impressed with the quality and physical likeness of this to the original Luger P-08. He did a field strip of the gun and aside from provisions made for a .177 BB compared to a 9mm cartridge,he was again impressed. Feel and heft seems great, visual finish is nice too.

    Things I would have changed:

    I knew that the blow back feature was going to suck up a lot of CO2, ....and boy does it. By the end of middle of the second clip (30-35 shots)the bb's were visible to the eye as they exited the gun, and the blow back feature and firing shock to the hand was noticeably less. I got a 10 for 10 test when I ordered my gun and 250-280 fps was the results. Pretty darn slow...even with a fresh CO2! Come on Umarex, a little more uuumph please! I can throw rocks this fast!

    What others should know:

    This gun is _very_ sensitive to BB quality. Avanti precision ground BB's were the only ones I could get to work at all. I tried three others and I could not get a full clip without jam after jam after jam. Would be nice to not have to use a Allen wrench to install the CO2 cartridge too. The gun has a nice "wow" factor, but as a shooter is gets old pretty fast because it is a so so shooter. Certainly not very accurate either. Get ready to use a lot of Kentucky windage to hit anything with it. Getting "close" is the best you can expect at anything beyond 25-30 feet. Umarex claims a "danger distance" of 275 _yards_.... .....ha!...hardly! As a gun to look at, hold and fondle,I give it a 9 out of 10. As a shooter, I give it a 3 or 4 out of 10. Not sure if I would buy this again without some improvements.

    Things I liked:

    The build quality is very good the pistol has a nice feel and balance. The trigger is extremely nice expecially for a gun in this price range. Accuracy is decent mine seems to shoot to the left slightly. The blowback works very well and the toggle locks open after your last bb. I also like that the piercing uses an Allen wrench so there is nothing dangling below the grips. I also like the texture for the slider to install bb's it's much easier to hold in place than most.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish the warning label was printed black the white stands out. I am only getting about 30-35 hard shots per C02 it takes about 45 shots to empty a C02 the last 10 air fairly weak. Lastly I would have purchased a second clip but $40 is a bit extreme.

    What others should know:

    This is a very fun to shoot piece of history at a very reasonable price. Not a gun I will shoot every day but I will enjoy it when I do.

    Things I liked:

    Everything about this are pistol is great.Worth the money.Amazing realism, great accuracy for a small smoothbore barrel.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    The blowback toggle action is very cool and snappy , when the CO2 gets low you can get a few more shoots but it wont have enough power to cycle the action.

    Things I liked:

    This is an excellent replica of a P 08 Luger. The size and weight are correct. The working toggle and blow back are a hoot! This pistol is accurate and a lot of fun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing it's great.

    What others should know:

    Don't over tighten the CO2 cartridge you may loose gas. The pistol uses a lot of gas to cycle the toggle so make sure that you buy more.

    Things I liked:

    The realism,the feel the looks

    Things I would have changed:

    There should be better quality control,I ordered one with an extra clip.I must have had a lemon.The gun after only a few shots began to expell all of the co2,I went through 10 co2's and a drop of oil on tip,waitng inbetween shots to see if it would settle down.It didn't I called PA and they arranged a pick up from FED-X,Their customer service is great in less than a week I recieved the replacement which appears to be fine. It was not their fault,from now on I will go for the $10.00 test for my next pcp or co2 gun.

    What others should know:

    Not to worry about anything purchased from PA"They will do everything to rectify any problem that arises. In all the years of doing business with PA I only had to return one air gun.They can't be expected to open every gun that they have in stock.In a short time there wouldn't be a PA in business.Thats all"I didn't like to give a bad review but I felt I had to state my opinion.

    As close to the real thing as you will ever get. Fully functional and awesome to shoot. Caught myself shooting into the air just so I could watch the toggle action work. Very cool to own!

    Things I would have changed:

    none

    What others should know:

    you will get about 2 mags shooting per 1 air cartridge, so stock up as you will be shooting this (and showing it off) alot.

    Things I liked:

    looks great,feels great,functions flawlessly.Quiet enough to shoot indoors or in the back yard. The sights work fine for me,the more open rear sight seems to enable my aging eyes to focus between the sights and the target better.I like the c02 loading system,it makes for sturdy grips.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wouldn't be too upset if it had more fps.

    Things I liked:

    The trigger: light; crisp; short stroke; short, positive reset. The heft of the pistol evokes muscle memory from practice with firearms. Of course the pistol's mass will also dampen the effects of essential tremor and recoil. The accuracy: perhaps due to the trigger, heft and other ergonomic factors, this pistol is grouping better than I expect from firing steel BBs. The fit and finish: the tight construction and attractive finish give one a sense of the maker's attention to detail.

    Things I would have changed:

    The color of the front sight ... Oh wait ... I *did* change it with a drop of white nail polish. In lighting conditions other than ideal, the front sight was lost in a black bull's-eye. A drop of Revlon fixed that.

    What others should know:

    For those not familiar with the action of a P.08 firearm, because Legends has faithfully reproduced that action here are some items to take into account: - where not to put your fingers during the firing cycle is a little different, a *proper* grip still works - your sight picture will be entirely lost at each shot as the rear sight moves on the action joint and the action joint occludes the front sight

    Things I liked:

    I have always wanted a collection of WW2 handguns but could not handle the cost of the real thing. The P08 has the same weight and feel as the real thing all metal construction. The blowback is really good and it remains back after the last BB is fired. Accuracy is very good for a smooth barrel BB pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Buy one!!

    Things I liked:

    This is another very cool blow-back pistol from KWC. The "Toggle" action makes a nice addition to the other blow-backs I already have. I find the sights to be very good and easy to find and shoot. First shot through the chronigraph was 320 and the second 316. Accuracy is excellent for a smooth bore. About 3 inches at 10 yards.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wood Grips or plastic that look like wood.

    What others should know:

    I picked up a pair of hand checkered Rosewood grips for a Luger P08. It took many hours of wood removal with my dremel. The wood ended up just about as thin as the 'paper thin' plastic grips that come on the pistol. The P08 looks super sweet with the Rosewood grips but I would not want to do another one. Do not spend to much on a pair of wood grips (I bought a pair on ebay that someone had buggered up for ten bucks) as they may not survive the fitting process. This is a must have pistol for every blow-back collection.

    Things I liked:

    THE look and feel of it,all metal,blowback,co2 in clip with ammo,

    Things I would have changed:

    Well I hate to say this but I might have gotten a lemon" I was only able to get only two full clips fired, when gun gun began to discharge the entire co2 and I was unable to get past three or four shots before it would discharge the entire co2 by only three or four shots. I went through almost ten co2's before I knew I would have to send it back.PA was great in handling my return and I love the feel and style of this gun that I told them I want to exchange it for a replacement and not a refund.In all the years I have been a customer this was the first time I ever had to send back a gun.Even though I had this problem I still will give this gun four stars and just hope I had a fluke I have faith that PA will come to the rescue

    What others should know:

    I purchased an extra clip with this gun and the gun did exhaust all the co2 also.I think the next time I buy an air gun I will opt for the $10.00 test

    Things I liked:

    This is a very unique replicate of the original luger. All metal and very well built. I haven't had a chance to fire it yet, but I am sure I won't be disappointed. Worth twice what they cost. Every collector should have this one.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice to have wood grips.

    Things I liked:

    The heft and feel is outstanding.I also have the non blow back version and always wished it would be just like this one. Shooting is a bit different because the gun does jump a bit but enhances the realism of the whole experience. This is a great piece for the money spent!!!

    Things I would have changed:

    Wood grips would be nice.

    What others should know:

    You will not be disappointed.

    Things I would have changed:

    I can not think of anything that I would change on this gun because I like it that much.

    What others should know:

    Extra mags are high priced but you will want to get at least one extra.

    Things I liked:

    Size and weight are perfect. Great detail. Incredibly realistic blowback. Nice addition to my collection. Well worth the wait time to get this one.

    Things I would have changed:

    Toy-like plastic grips have to go. field stripping takes some practice due to tight take down pin/plate.

    What others should know:

    This pistol is a bit loud. Accuracy- Mine shot fairly high at 25 feet. A bit of gunsmith work with epoxy to raise the front sight solved this problem. Now spot on at 25-30 feet, except for the occasional flyers. Gun must be cocked to engage safety.
