Umarex Legends MP40 Submachine Gun
Please Note: While the original Umarex Legends MP40 featured a 60rd magazine, this capacity has been reduced to 52 rounds in new models.
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 52 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: This gun is literally a blast to shoot. The gun itself is remarkably similar to the real MP40 - I have handled and shot the real deal. The weight, feel, look and features could pass for the real gun. The operation of weapon is almost like the real one. I have shot it with my grandsons and they have had a great time, although they wear me our reloading and replacing the CO2 cartridges. I have not had a jam. I am only loading 40 BBs as recommended, which probably has helped. The price is not bad at all when you consider the quality, realism and operation of this historical weapon. I wish Umarex would also make an automatic Thompson.
Things I would have changed: The difficulty in loading the magazine is a challenge. Umarex would do well to design a loader (as for some other similar autos) to be provided. At nearly $50.00, spare magazines are not practical. The only other feature I found that could be improved is the safety/fire selector. It is very difficult to slide the safety/fire (very stiff) without having to turn the gun up and wrestle the slide. This can invite mishandling and losing muzzle control. It is hard for me to do (safely) and my youngest grandchild cannot manipulate it.
What others should know: Anyone who enjoys historical firearms should take a look at this weapon. The vast majority of gun enthusiast, shooters and collectors cannot legally own and shoot fully automatic weapons (unless they have very hard to obtain Class 3 license). Full automatic firearms are also VERY expensive. I've not seen any MP40s on the market, but Thompsons, M16s, MP5s, etc., cost in the range of $10,000.00 - $30,000.00 and more.
Things I liked: Great gun lots of fun to shoot
Things I would have changed: Mags are heavy
What others should know: keep up the good work and put in a show room with a test range PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Things I liked: This is a heavy and fun to shoot rifle the full auto is something I have never tried on a BB rifle.
Things I would have changed: Someway to make it a little easier to fill
What others should know: For it a blast to shoot on full auto.

"bolt" will not close--never fired, what's the problem?
Can a scope be mounted to the MP40...if so do you have a suggestion on a good scope to buy?.
I have not seen a mount for it
Is it NJ legal as long as I have FID?
