Low profile 3-dot sights allow for quick and easy sighting.

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.

Things I liked: First things first. As a collector and active shooter, I appreciate the professionalism of the pyramid air team. As for the Beretta APX,... This is one of the best replica air pistols I've purchased. It is at the top of it's class in realism for air propelled projectile platform based on a gun powder propelled projectile platform. Ergonomically this is my favorite air pistol. The grips are excellent, the slide serrations from front to back are a nice touch, sights provide good target aquisition, weight is spot on, trigger is predictable and consistent, all in line with the gunpowder version, (which is the proper terminology because these air pistols ARE firearms, just not gunpowder propelled projectile platforms.) The APX is a fairly accurate pistol as far as 4.5 mm BB platforms are concerned. I have consistently achieved 2" groups at 10 meters, 3" at 12 m. I was glad to see Beretta officially liscence this pistol and partner with Umarex. This was one that had to be in my collection.

Things I would have changed: There's really not much to correct when it comes to this pistol's design. However, if Umarex and Beretta wanted to Improve this design with, say a Gen 2 APX, my suggestion would be to add an adjustable hop up system and a very slightly stiffer recoil spring ( very slightly,... it's just a little soft.). Also it would be nice to have a few variations as well. ( Maybe an OD Green and a FDE ) Other than that I wouldn't change a thing. Excellent pistol at an excellent price.

What others should know: Buy this pistol. You're going to love it!

  • William from USA asked:

    When it's out of bb's does the slide kick back and lock?

    • Jacob from USA:

      Yes it does

  • Hook from USA asked:

    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.

    • Ted from USA:

      Having the same problem after only a few weeks, so does anybody know?

  • GLENN from USA asked:

    What sense does it make to have a blow back slide that does not cock the mechanism and chamber the next BB..? ,,, I mean, if you gotta work the double action on each shot and the blow back is just needlessly spent CO2.
