Things I liked: I like just about everything about the gun, except for the weak spring. It is ergonomic, has a good shot count (3 1/2- 4mags), and a nice blowback action, simulating the powder burner. This gun can be a perfect trainer for someone with this powder burn or if you just like the Beretta name, style and the way it looks and works.
Things I would have changed: Weak spring, butplate on mag comes off and must be reglued, may have gotten a faulty mag. make the clip a full mag with self-contained CO2 compartment, and a better piercing system. Make it pellet with the full velocity allowed by law. also make this gun ''field stripable'...and you will have a 10 star gun.
What others should know: Good gun. You will be happy you got it. The weak spring can be fixed, after the warranty period, or if you're Really Brave; you can take the two top frame pins out that hold the slide, and stretch the spring -which will stop the rattle and give it a solid blow-back feel. This has been my favorite gun, I've had Glock and other pistols, this one remains a favorite so far. Get one, but be careful it looks exactly like Police service revolver, except for the open hole in bottom of mag., ( powder burner has a rubber grommet in the clip buttplate hole), thats the only obvious difference at close range. Warning markings are under trigger guard and must look close to see. Great gun!
Things I liked: It was a decent pistol to use for target practice. Great accuracy.
Things I would have changed: The slide is like die cast metal. Very cheap. But they did that to increase blowback realism. Also, the co2 chamber needs to be completely re designed. The thumb screw is a bad sign if you purchase a pistol with one. It can break easily as well as not hold a strong seal with the cartridge. They should have made the magazine with a hex key to tighten better. The whole pistol should be redesigned. Then it would be awesome.
What others should know: The pistol lasted for about 1800 rounds. Then it had co2 leaking issues as well as a small piece of metal breaking off in the slide area due to the cheap metal. This explains the reduction in sale price. When I bought it, it was $100.
Things I liked: Umarex has released another very good replica of a modern firearm. Despite the non-functioning, molded-in take down lever and the stick magazine, I really like this APX BB pistol. For my hand, the grip is just about a perfect fit and is very comfortable. As a right handed shooter, the safety is very easy to operate with my trigger finger. Although the open ejection port is not essential to a BB pistol, I like that added touch of realism. The blowback is strong, but not too strong. While a bit long and heavy, the double action trigger has a very distinct and consistent "click" just before the pistol fires that makes it easy to quickly pull back to that click point before adjusting aim and firing. The white dot sights make aiming easy, and the APX shoots to point of aim. Accuracy is very good. At 18 feet to target, Umarex steel BBs produced a 10 shot group of 1.6" with 9 of the 10 shots within 1".
Things I would have changed: I like the stick magazine because it is very easy to load, but I would also like to see a full size BB / CO2 magazine for the APX.
What others should know: I shot 10 shot groups of the following BBs from a bench rest at 18 feet to target: Umarex Steel, 1.6"; Copperhead, 1.5"; Black Diamond, 1.6"; Daisy Premium, 1.5"; Smart Shot, 2.9"; and Avanti, 1.8". The APX performed very well without malfunctions. Some BBs, like the Smart Shot, are not a good choice for this pistol. The trigger is double action only. The blowback slide does not cock the pistol. As the trigger is pulled back, the 0.177 barrel actually moves forward until the sear releases at which time the barrel snaps back. The slide does lock back after the final shot when the magazine is empty. Total shot count for one Umarex CO2 was 90 when the slide failed to lock back on the empty magazine, but I recommend stopping at about 80 shots. I highly recommend this APX pistol. Get one. You won't regret it.

my mag release button fell out can i oepn it up to put the spring back in? any way i can tear it down?
Return the gun.
When it's out of bb's does the slide kick back and lock?
Yes it does
Anybody having issues with the magazines not having enough spring tension to retain the bb's at the top end of the mag? This thing was solid at first, not many shots through it, then sat for a couple of months. Took it out to shoot (very cold day) and as soon as I put spring tension on it, all the bb's puked out. Tried again later in normal warm conditions with the same result. And I always follow the spring up until it makes contact with the stack.Have to treat it with extreme caution or the mags will unload themselves in a hurry.
Having the same problem after only a few weeks, so does anybody know?
