By Vincent from Canada on 2016-06-13 14:24:48

Things I liked:

same kick as the tanfoglio witness 1911, thick metal slide, verry accurate, 7/8'' grouping at 10 feet for 10 shots. I had to put a bit of PL-100 (lubricant) into the hammer area (with slide removed), as the contact zone where the hammer meet the trigger mechanism was a bit stiff, after putting my magic PL-100, it came verry smooth. Verry fun to hold, really nice looking and feel, shoot always at the same spot, no flyer on all my 50 shots. piercing mechanism with screw like the TFW that make a huge hole into the co2 bottle, allowing constant power until the verry end, I had 50 good shots and 8 weak shots. You have to aim with the center of the front dot in the middle of the rear top sight line, than align the center of the front dot into the bullye of your target to hit center, so it shoot a bit low like many guns. But it is better this way, shooting too high is impossible to compensate with precision.

Things I would have changed:

black metal outer barrel, instead of black paint that mark verry easy on the first slide moves.

What others should know:

the safety lever is a bit stiff, but works well. Slide lock back on the last rounds with no problem

By Dennis from USA on 2016-06-23 08:22:42

Things I liked:

The trigger is nice as well as the sights (which are adjustable) and being able to change the grip size is a plus.

Things I would have changed:

Power. I don't know what in the world Umarex was thinking when they released this pistol with such a low FPS. If I did not collect air pistols I would have sent this one back!

What others should know:

I am so disappointed in the FPS of this pistol I would say to anyone contemplating purchasing this pistol to PASS! And to Umarex.....YOU FAILED MISERABLY!!!

    What others should know:

    I wouldn't use dust devil bb's in this or any clip fed pistol, but they're fine with revolvers. I've had them jam the clip or prematurely " dust" in the chamber, especially with blow backs. Safety glasses are a must, as they should always be.

    Things I liked:

    Looks weight and Feel. This Pistol fit my hand so good out of the box and accuracy was Excellent !! I was hitting a 4"x4" Gamo target and all shots were all center. All 9"s & 10s at 17-20 ft off hand, No Rest and I had just one flyer. 3 Dot sights were dead on, Trigger was light and had a nice break. I'm gonna miss this one it had to go back !!!

    Things I would have changed:

    The magazine can use a cutout on the bottom to hold follower down to load bb's. It was a little bit tough for me to load but I got used to it after a couple loads. The follower has a small spot to grip to pull it down with all the tension on the spring and you Thumb or Finger ?

    What others should know:

    This was a great shooter till the Slide locked back and was Jammed. There was Nothing I could do to free it up and I had to send it back. This was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT for me considering it shot so well. Probably one of the most accurate c02 Pistols I had the pleasure to shoot. I did not take a measurement of the grouping but it was very good, could probably cover that group with a quarter or smaller ?? The reason I did not give it 5 stars overall was do to the gun Problems I had with it. Get some better Quality Control some -where between manufacturer and Seller, if this is possible. I wish so bad It did not lock back on me, I have ordered another Pistol because a replacement is taking FOREVER with the Holidays. I know P.A. is the best place to shop for my air gun needs, but Hire some part time help during the Christmas Season. I sent back 2 Pistols in December, the other was the Springfield Armory XDM ?

    THIS IS A CO2 HOG!! I got one clip be for it jams! It is really hard to thread on the co2 cap and feed bbs in the mag! Not very accurate. And the large grip does not fit well at all. I don't know if mine was defective but I would not recommend getting this.

    Things I liked:

    Comparing it to a fellow co-workers EDC, everything was pretty much spot on, except the ugly white lettering/safety warning and thumb safety's. The exchangeable grip back straps, VERY comfortable. Field strip capability.

    Things I would have changed:

    METAL TRIGGER! A shorter front sight or higher rear sight- Even though the grouping is good, the POA WAS 3-4 inches low- HORRIBLE. First making sure I wouldn't have to return it for malfunction, I carefully did some light filing work to the blow back cage and to the sight itself, installed a Crosman LPA, fully adjustable rear sight. With the LPA all the way down, it was just slightly low, but adjustable to correct POA. The usual, easier, raised BB follower.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's perfect just the way it is. I wouldn't change a thing about it.

    What others should know:

    I know nothing of air gunners, but for those that want to train under conditions that the real counterpart isn't necessary and only require a doppelganger clone to complete training as close to realism as possible, then this unit will satisfy them. These units have overtaken the real things in looks, feel, and for the most part, actions. Can't go wrong with 'em. Just can't.

    Things I liked:

    Really nice training pistol and the magazine is really cool it is not nice and heavy which adds to the realism. It is pretty light but I guess that is what the firearm is like to, it is pretty easy to field strip but some times the slide will not always go on very easily.

    Things I would have changed:

    Loading the co2 is very difficult sometimes. The white letters on the slide could be smaller.

    Things I liked:

    What like best besides the look, feel, blowback, and weight of this gun is the shape of the trigger. This is the first pistol I've purchased that has a curved shaped trigger which fit's perfectly and snugly around my finger. It sounds like a minor thing, but when you fire the gun you'll know exactly what I mean.

    Things I would have changed:

    VERY tough to load. The thumb tab is recessed and extremely hard to get your nail into to push down. No lock down either which only adds to difficulty. After about my 10th CO2 bulb the seal is already showing signs of a leak. This seems to be an issue with rubber/translucent type CO2 seals, as opposed to the white (teflon I think) seals which have never leaked on me yet.

    What others should know:

    But it's worth the purchase and has a great realistic feel to it. One of favorites for sure.

    Things I liked:

    Great gun! Love the weight and the solid feel in your hand it's great working on accuracy Target acquisition and drawing your weapon with a life-size feel and weight

    Things I would have changed:

    Lockdown for refeeding BB's. I bought the speed loader which has helped to a certain degree but the speed loader tends to jam quite easily. A metal Speed Loader that did not Jam would be fantastic or a locking mechanism for the spring while loading BB's

    What others should know:

    The only issue I have had with this gun is that the seal on the CO2 cartridge in the magazine has failed on both the original magazine that came with the gun and the second magazine that I bought within 30 days. Pyramyd Air has been fantastic as far as replacing the defect of magazines. I'm wondering if it is an issue with the gun or just because of the in magazine CO2 cartridge design. Also remember to put a drop of pellgun oil on your CO2 cartridge before loading it into the magazine to help protect the seal. Overall a great replica firearm and good for practicing without spending tons of money on ammo like I do with the range

    Things I liked:

    This is my first "blowback" BB gun. I bought it to get some practice in dealing with recoil and keeping two consecutive shots on target before getting some professional training with my S&W 9mm. The slide is easier to pull back than on the 9mm. As the appearance, feel in my hand, & weight are the same, I plan to ALWAYS keep the two guns stored SEPARATELY so as to prevent a potentially serious problem with a negligent discharge of live ammunition, which could be seriously inconvenient to a neighbor.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing so far.

    What others should know:

    Repeat on the separate storage from firearms, especially with replica airguns.

    Things I liked:

    Looks like a very solid authentic replica, good for training as I had intended, but...

    Things I would have changed:

    Add a locking bb follower

    What others should know:

    My 72-year old hands can't load bbs into the magazine. spring is too stiff and follower does not lock down for loading. I sent it back for a refund. PA was great about exchanging it for something easier to load.

    Things I liked:

    Ok, My favorite so far.I can sell all my others. 15 rounds can go very fast with this. Feels like the real one, holds the same # rounds, same action, just missing the noise and a little more recoils. Mags have CO2 and BBs in it, so mag changes are like the real deal. I like this one so much I will go buy the real one, it is slightly smaller than the Sig Sauer P226 X 5, it fits my Blackhawk holster perfect. I get 3 full mags out of one CO2, 45 shots before blowback becomes an issue. So far I have 150 BBs thru it. I will update review as it progresses. Well worth the money.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not sure about the sights yet, rear is loose but I have not investigated it yet, looks like an allen wrench to tighten it. Make a model similar to the competition pro with holes tapped for a red dot sight. Get rid of the safety, not needed.

    What others should know:

    Accuracy is too be expected not hitting pennies at any range, I shoot the CASS type targets so speed is the key, not so much accuracy. this is the perfect match for my Crossman Ar type rifle. All I need now is a shotgun BB gun...

    Things I liked:

    Good idea - that's all

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    The mag lost CO2 when loading the second cartridges. The granules fell inside the gun. lost 5 cartridges co2 and jammed. Slider lock in the open position of bad metal and has a serious wear. I shot 200 pellets. The idea is good - quality 0. This is the first product of the company Umarex - more of this company will not buy anything. Horror

    Things I liked:

    Weight and feel are great. The accuracy is far better than I expected, this thing beats almost all of the other smooth bore BB pistols I own (around 20). Sub 2" groups at 20 feet without much effort. Point of impact was about an inch low but right down the middle. The trigger pull is long but light, mag dumps are fun! This pistol is easily my top 5 favorites!

    Things I would have changed:

    My complaints are few and very minor. The safety is a little stiff and odd feeling as others have mentioned. The mags for this one are a bit of a thumbnail muncher for loading as the follower doesn't lock down, but nothing close to a deal breaker. Also as others have stated the garish white safety warning print is kind of heart breaking, but if you're into this hobby you sort of get used to that.

    What others should know:

    The takedown lever works and you can strip the pistol but getting it in the right spot for reassembly takes some fiddling. There was a chrome sticker inside the slide whose purpose was probably to reduce the effect of the slide wearing the paint off of the exposed portion of the barrel but it started to come loose and I removed it. The coatings on any of these guns are thin, wear marks happen. As far as efficiency, it isn't great as compared to the cybergun 1911's with the valve-in-mag build type but in warm conditions with warm-up time allowed for the powerlet you'll get about 3 mags with noticeable slowing at the last half of the 3rd. Fairly standard. It's about middle of the road as far as the noise level, louder than the 1911's and the Walter pps, quieter than the TF gold/custom. Very fun to shoot, this one will see a lot of use!

    Things I liked:

    The gun is heavy and has a real feel. That's probably the only thing I like about this gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    The quality of the gun is marginal at best. First gun I received was incredibly flawed as if nobody inspected this thing on the way out the door! Internal mechanism completely jammed after about 10 minutes of use. I probably put 50 BBs through it and then it was junk. Spend your hundred bucks on anything else, just not this gun.

    What others should know:

    Accuracy is horrific with this thing, it's actually comical. I can watch the BBs fly left and right like crazy, you have to be about 30 feet from your target to even come close with this thing. Half of the C02 cartridges just blow out air and are wasted so make sure to buy plenty of C02!
