    Things I liked:

    Very Nice CO2 replica, I also have the real auto! It has a nice weight to it, very nice action and the trigger pull is O.K. I didn't like the silver bits showing through the slide/frame so I painted it black and it looks nicer. I like the way the magazines are seperate and the blowback feature.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would have liked a dove-tail real site so windage could be adjusted. The lazer workes well and almost a necessity if one is wanting accuracy/plinking fun. Very addictive.

    What others should know:

    This is a very well made air pistol and displays obvious quality. I am not fond of the safety, but it is acceptable. Except for the lack of adjustable rear site, I am very happy with the purchase.

    Things I liked:

    As I already am a proud owner of a Nickel Walther CP99 pellet pistol, I already know what to expect when it comes to Walther quality. But i must say that I was impressed with this gun. It has a nice hefty weight to it, it"s made of durable metal and a high quality polymer. Blowback with open ejection port is awesome. After the last shot is fired, the slide stayd cocked back like a real firearm.Speaking of the slide, it has a nice matte black finish ! Accuracy up to 30 ft. is pretty good. Each co2 cartridge will give you at least 100 shots as long as you put a drop of Crosman Pellgunoil on the tip of each one before charging it into the pistol..

    Things I would have changed:

    I"ve thpught about it for a few minutes and haven"t been ablr to come up with anything.

    What others should know:

    If you"re into shooting realistic looking, feeling, and performing air pistols, you won"t go wrong with thw Walther CP99 compact... If you wanna have fun with it, get at least 4 extra mags, the Walther laser, lots of Copperhead BBs, co2 powerlets and Pellgunoil to keep the fun going for a long time..

    Things I liked:

    For a pistol I found it extremely accurate if feels like a real gun parts are sturdy and it has a good weight it's loud which adds to make it look real

    Things I would have changed:

    Well the co2 lasts for about 3 clips then after that it has less accuracy and It stops cocking it by itself. Also the first 3 shots are very powerful then it slowly goes downhill. Absolutely everything else I liked abouth the gun.

    What others should know:

    Worth the money

    Things I liked:

    My 7 year old daughter is able to shoot this gun accurately. She has difficulty with double action triggers but the single action trigger on this gun is just right for her.

    Things I would have changed:

    The safety is difficult to operate. I think it needs a much lighter spring.

    What others should know:

    If you shoot it too fast, even on a hot day, the CO2 cartridge will get too cold and act as if it is out of gas. If you let it warm you can go back to shooting without changing the CO2. I can shoot about 5 mags on one.

    Things I liked:

    The feel of this airgun is really amazing. The metal slide and the polymer grip combined with the weight of this gun make it feel real. The recoil on the first several shots is similar to a .22 rimfire pistol. The recoil will diminish after several magazines and/or rapid shots. I must admit, it's hard not to rip off several rapid shots with this pistol. I found the accuracy acceptable at 25 ft. and the noise level reasonable for indoor basement shooting.

    Things I would have changed:

    I really cannot find anything I would like to change at this time

    What others should know:

    I strongly recommend buying the extra magazines, which I did, to minimized your loading time and increase your shooting time. I also recommend buying the Crosman Pellgunoil oil as other have recommended. The price of the oil is nominal if it will maintain the performance of the pistol. This is my first air pistol in 20 years and now my favorite. If you enjoy shooting real handguns, this blowback style air pistol is the way to go.

    Things I liked:

    This gun has an excellent realistic feel to it. The metal slide looks like the real thing and the polymer frame has a quality feel to it. Overall excellent feel in the hand, although I find that the distance from the back of the gun to the trigger is a little short for my hands. I have read numerous reviews stating that this gun is not accurate. While I'm not a competitive shooter and don't have a good handle on what the definition of accurate is, I find this gun pretty good at 25 ft. From that distance, I can usually place about 15 out of 17 shots in the 8 points or higher range on a standard 25ft pistol target (with RWS Match BBs). I actually find this gun to be MUCH more accurate than my Beretta Px4, as the blowback on the CP99 Compact is much more manageable. The Beratta is more fun to shoot as it has a more realistic recoil, but getting the bullets on target is a little tougher.

    Things I would have changed:

    My only complaint about this gun is that the halfway point of the trigger pull releases the BB and if you take too much time squeezing the trigger while aiming slightly downward, the BB just rolls out of the barrel. This only happens in about 1% of the shots and a quicker trigger squeeze definitely addresses the problem.

    What others should know:

    The CP99 compact is excellent value for the money. It's a very high quality pistol with a hefty feel (in my opinion, it feels much better than the more expensive CP99, which I know is more accurate but lacks the blowback mechanism). Overall, highly highly recommended.

    Rating 3.03.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    Looks and feels real nice. The blowback action, The slide catch when the magazine empties, the safety is just fine and rear red dot indicator are a nice feature, the power for a blowback, smoothbore BB pistol is much more than I expected. The accuracy is nothing special, normal is how I would describe the accuracy. The rail fits most of my accessories, trigger pull is excellent. The heavy plastic and metal construction are of good quality. the power is what stands out most. Uses a little more CO2 than the average BB pistol, but thats to be expected with the blowback action.

    Things I would have changed:

    The way CO2 is loaded is not that bad, but could use some improvement. Outside of that, nothing more.

    What others should know:

    As with any BB pistol, this one is very, very, very sensitive to cooler temps. It may misfire, BBs may roll out the end of the barrel when you pull the trigger, the blowback will not work. I thought my pistol was defective, but after further investigation, i used it in an environment temp over 60degrees and it worked perfect! Uses the CO2, so get plenty.

    Things I liked:

    Nice heft, pretty solid construction, and the grip feels very natural. The drop out magazine is nice and solid, not flimsy plastic like some.

    Things I would have changed:

    No interchangeable back-straps like the CP99 (pellet pistol edition). Slide has a tiny bit of play and moves a little left/right and up and down. Slightly tighter tolerances would make it feel a bit more "real."

    What others should know:

    Lots of fun. I just unboxed mine and immediately put 200 rounds through it. Even in a fairly cool garage (64 or so), got about 85-90 shots on one CO2 powerlet, with a bit of coaxing (let the gun warm between rapid bursts). A couple of points: some have reported that the ejection port in the slide is closed molded shut. Not on my gun: it's open and provides a clear view of the chamber (which the tip of the magazine occupies when the gun is loaded). Also, the mag release is a bit touchy and different from the push button design on many sidearms. It takes getting used to: a quick press-and-release is required to get the mag to drop free (if you leave the lever depressed the mag will stick after dropping about an inch).

    Things I liked:

    Can you say blowback? Gives a solid kick like a real .22 when the CO2 tank is good on pressure. Loud indoors (yes, I like that). Feels good in the hand. It's obviously nothing more than a toy but it gives you a good feeling just to hold it.

    Things I would have changed:

    The safety is really annoying... especially when your taking it off from the cocked position.

    What others should know:

    If your looking for something to compete with I don't know why you'd even be looking at this gun. However, if you want something rediculously fun -- I don't think there exists any better choice than this... seriously.

    Things I liked:

    Very solid, looks like the real thing. Mountable laser sight is awesome and cheaper if bought separately instead of buying the model that includes it. Good price for a nice CO2 Blowback repeater.

    Things I would have changed:

    Accuracy

    What others should know:

    Maybe its just mine, but the slide rubs the right side of the barrel during blowback. I can already see it shaving off the plastic if I pull back the slide myself. Not sure how to correct this.....I could always lubricate it in hopes it wont dig into the plastic as much.

    Things I liked:

    Blowback is great, nice wight - doesnt feel cheap, rapid fire is extremely satisfying, realism is spot on

    Things I would have changed:

    None - it does what it is meant to do. Don't plan on using it for competition target shooting, or for hunting, and you'll be fine

    What others should know:

    The accuracy is about what you would expect from a BB repeater with a 3" barrel - but this is not a competition target gun, its a plinker - which it really excels at. Just remember to buy PLENTY of BBs and CO2 (and pellgunoil or ATF fluid to lubricate the CO2 cartridge as with all CO2 guns).

    Everything!!! Accuracy!!! Looks and feels realistic,, its a beautiful toy!!!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.. hmmm,, maybe the bottom of the handle,, the little piece that hangs down in the picture (which is what you would twist to pierce the C02) .. But honestly,, its more noticable in the picture,, the CP99 no question,is overall Official..The only possible way this gun could be better is if it shot pellets too,, but still that would only be better if it shot pellets with an 18 shot rotary clip or something...(havent seen anything like that for a pellet gun yet)

    What others should know:

    Just get extra clips,, thats bout it.. A box of like 25 C02's and i think the zinc bb's are recommended... oh Also, I'd recommend getting the laser 4 this gun too...

    Things I liked:

    the weight, the feel, very ergonomic grip, metal trigger, and of course, the sharp blowback action

    Things I would have changed:

    maybe try to make it a bit more accurate, dont know how they would pull that off (maybe a longer barrel)

    What others should know:

    this is a great plinker, DEFINATELY not for target shooting, trust me its not too accurate. love the blow back action, love how when your outta ammo the slide stops midway, like a real gun would. metal parts: slide, trigger, the thing on the side that releases the slide when your outta ammo (dunnowhat its called), both sights, the CO2 screw, and the magazine release the rest is some really hard plastic. havent had any problems with it yet. i get around 7 or 8 magazines of good power from this thing. some people say 4 mags but i get 7-8 on mine. if your thinking about getting a good realistic plinker, get this.

    Things I liked:

    Very realistic action. Very heavy just like a real 9mm. Accuracy is great as well. Ambidextrous design for left and right handed individuals.

    Things I would have changed:

    Slide should come back more like the real 9mm about an inch. More power!!

    What others should know:

    Buy ALOT of CO2 with this gun because it is very fun and you will definitely go through the cartridges. I fired about 70 shots with one CO 2 cartridge and that is about 4 17 round clips. I also noticed that the gun will let you know when the CO2 is almost empty because it will stop firing and the recoil will not happen. Overall, BUY THIS GUN....GREAT GIFT IDEA FOR FATHERS, GRADS, BIRTHDAYS, AND CHRISTMAS!!

    Things I liked:

    I LOVE the Blow back. It truly adds the feel of realism to the pistol. It feels great in your hand, relatively heavy, and it is fairly accurate at about 6-8 metres, but I just use it for plinking, so it does what it is supposed to do. The price is fairly reasonable, purchased from a local retailer.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not much. Maybe make the slot on the slide for the slide catch a little deeper, even just .005" to .010", because after about 400-500 rounds, it starts to wear down a little and the slide doesn't catch as well as it did, nothing that a file can't fix thought.

    What others should know:

    Get LOTS of C02... this gun is a C02 sponge... obviously due to the blow back, but it is well worth it.

    Things I liked:

    This is truly another great pistol from Walther. the look, feel, the wieght. This pistol has all of the same controls found on the real Walther P99, including the slide lock, decocking lever, (not in the same place as the P99, but serves the same purpose). you even have to pull the slide back all the way to cock the pistol. Overall, it is a very realistic pistol to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    the sights could be l a little better. the front is just a black blade sight with no white or green dot, while the back is a very loose unajustabe notch sight. Also, its not the most accurate pistol out past 20 meters, and when you cock the slide, you don't feel the little resistance when the cartridge pops up into the chamber on the real P99.

    What others should know:

    I work for an inner city security company, and I bought this gun so I could train to use the P99-9mm, and not have to take the real one down to the range for target practice. When I bought it, I thought I was just buying a fairly cheap training gun. But I was wrong! this thing is beautiful in the way that it shoots and preforms. It is definately a steal at $75! I would highly reccomend this pistol to anyone looking for a high quality airpistol, and to anyone looking for a good training gun.
