Umarex Legends MP40 Submachine Gun
For years the Legends series by Umarex has brought historic firearms to life as airgun replicas for shooting enthusiasts.
Now Umarex has created their very own German MP40 submachine gun replica. This .177 caliber BB rifle promises hours of fun with a 60 round magazine and full auto capability! Powered by two 12 gram CO2 cartridges, simply select full or semi-automatic firing, and mow down tin cans like never before.
The "real steel" MP40 was first developed in 1940 for German paratroopers and later became the standard submachine gun for the Wehrmacht infantry. The Legends MP40 is a faithful replica that will transport you back in time the minute you pick it up. The realism is highlighted by the full metal body and folding shoulder stock. The hooded front sight and adjustable rear sight stay true to the original design and keep your eyes on the prize.
For fans of WWII military arms, this legendary gun can finally be yours!
Please Note: Do not use with Smart Shot BBs as it will cause the airgun to jam. For best results, do not fill more than 40-45 BBs at a time. Overfilling can cause jams.
In the manual, it is stated that you will hear a "pop" noise (CO2 release) when dry firing the gun with just CO2 in the magazine. This is not the case, the magazine must be loaded with both CO2 and BBs for the gun to fire properly.

Things I liked: Very fun gun! At first I thought it was not functioning properly, then I realized I hadn't pierced both cartridges. When you tighten down the allen wrench, make sure you go past the first resistance to fully snugged down in order to pierce both CO2 cartridges. I love shooting this thing when the sun is just right, and you can see the bright BB's like tracers, and walk your shots in to your target!! I am amazed at how consistently I can center punch a pop can at 20 yards or so. I haven't had any jamming problems at all with Remington plated steel BB's. Accuracy is very good for a smooth bore air gun, power is great, will punch a pop can with a resounding slap. I am afraid I might scare the neighbors.
Things I would have changed: I wish the trigger was lighter. This feels almost like a double action revolver instead of a true semi auto. On full auto it is fine, but I prefer to shoot it semi auto. I still really enjoy shooting it, but the trigger would be nicer if it was similar to the Remington 1911 pistol I have or the Luger.
What others should know: This seems to be really well made, and has the feel of an authentic carbine. Just buy it, you know you want one :-)
Things I liked: Sorry guys. Way to much fun. I'm enjoying much. Got my sling from China. The only thing I would change?
Things I would have changed: I would have ordered the gun at a later date.
What others should know: It's about fun
Things I liked: This Legends MP40 BB rifle is another historic replica that I am very pleased to have in my collection. It appears to me so far at this time to be very well made for shooting semi auto. All of the shot tests I performed as described below worked well without any problems. The rifle successfully shot the following BBs: Umarex Steel, Crosman Copperhead, Daisy Premium and Avanti, Hornady Black Diamond, and Marksman. The 18 foot distance, bench rested, 10 shot semi auto accuracy was reasonable to very good for all of these BBs: Umarex - 1", Copperhead - 1 3/4", Daisy Premium - 1 3/8", Avanti - 11/16, Hornady - 3/4", and Marksman - 3/4". Total slow fire semi auto shot counts: Umarex CO2 - 154, Crosman CO2 - 159, and Swiss Arms CO2 - 168.
Things I would have changed: There are a couple of changes I want to see. I want a follower lock in the magazine when loading BBs. For safety when shooting full auto, I would like to see this rifle be able to reliably shoot the Smart Shot copper coated lead BBs.
What others should know: All shots were done in semi auto mode. I have not yet shot this rifle in full auto mode. Three separate magazines were used. Three brands of CO2 were used: Umarex, Crosman, and Swiss Arms. The CO2 screws were tightened as much as possible which successfully pierced all CO2 cartridges. Ten shot groups were shot slowly in semi auto mode to test the accuracy of the rifle with various BBs. The shot tests were performed at a distance of 18 feet to target using both bench rested and off-hand standing positions. Targets were NRA 10 meter Air Pistol Targets with 2" shot spots on the center bulls eye. Aim point was the 12 o'clock position on the shot spot to keep shots on the spot instead of hitting low. Each magazine was reloaded 7 times with 10 shots and shot slowly semi auto without any jam or feed problems. For shot count determination, each magazine was reloaded 2 times with 40 shots and 1 time with 50 shots and shot slowly semi-auto without any jam or feed problems.

How many shots should I expect from one set of CO2 cartridges? I think that I got less than 100.
Can the front sling mount be rotated from the left side to the right side? The picture on the bundled version with the sling shows right side and the regular picture shows left side. How do you flip it?
These MP 40's were incorrectly assembled with the forward sling ring on the same side as the bolt, which is incorrect. I found this video, (Unfortunately only in German, but it visually demonstrates disassembly clearly enough to follow) that shows how to disassemble the barrel nut. I was able to rotate the sling ring to the correct side, so now a sling won't tangle up with the bolt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knRhMLp4He8
OK, so I'm a little confused. This rifle will shoot both semi AND full auto. Some are saying that you cannot shoot shorts bursts without jamming? Is that the case?
Another 2 new mags fired 28 bb loads total 21 fired correct 6 stuck once , 1 stuck twice . To bad there is not a forum from all users to see if this is how it is.
Ok fired out new mag again short auto bursts 4x40bbs - jammed on last 20 bbs . Fired the original mag also same results . Sending Gun and both mags to Umarex after talking with their tech.
Ok got a new replacement mag from Umarex today fired out 4 x 40 bbs to exhaust the 2 co2 s - no jams yea. Will continue this every day to see for awhile. Ok fired next day twice to loads of CO2 - 2nd trial ok all four time short bursts at 40 bbs no jams. Third CO2 load no so much . First 40 bbs ok . Second load jam with @ 15 bbs left. Third load of 40 bbs no fire at all. Pulled mag out put back in cocked again - nothing . Pulled mag out pulled tab down and shook the neatly packed bbs which now where not exactly stacked as has been recommended out back in cocked and all fired out . Final load put in as recommended stacking stuck with @ 20+ bbs recocked and fired out . So will call umarex monday
James what powdered graphite did you use?
Had some feeding problems too. Go with less BBs, it helps. Also found that small puff of powdered graphite on several hundred BBs, then a good shake to distribute well, and they feed perfectly. In the case of this type mag and gun the BB slot needs DRY lubrication.
Ok have fired the same gun after second Silicon spray and it stuck on the 6 CO2 load this time on the 1st bb load of 40 at about 10 bbs fired remaining loads ok - have sent the other defective mag back to Umarex- will continue to lube and fire until the good mags show up.
Umarex says it is a mag problem and replacements are coming . I had problems with the first gun and also extra mag I ordered both mags would jam at least once per co2 load when firing 4 times with 40 bbs as recommended by Tyler in auto when firing short bursts to use up the CO2- I sent it back to Pyramyd and kept the extra mag - The 2nd gun worked 3 times before starting to hang same as the first. Tried the extra mag it worked for one cycle but the fit was very tight compared to the first gun and it was very hard to put in and release - it damaged the O-ring on the top of the mag so its going back to Umarex when the new good mags show up. So I sprayed the bb area with Evike Silicon non petroluem and got 8 CO2 loads flawlessly then it started to hang again so I sprayed again and so far good for 2 loads of co2 will keep going to see how this works out_ Umarex said ok
There have been some initial differences in performance from gun to gun. But my findings have been that if you don't fill the mag past 40 BBs, the gun doesn't jam in full auto, whether you do a full mag dump or burst fire. I have read other reports where folks say they cannot shoot any bursts without jams, and others where they get hang ups with less BBs in the mag.
