Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex HK VP9 is fairly decent. When the slide cycles it sets the internal striker ready for single action shooting, but there is a first stage of the trigger that moves the CO2 nozzle in the magazine forward. This pushes a BB into the breech area of the barrel, while also sealing the magazine into the barrel, allowing for more effect CO2 usage and extra power. This magazine nozzel movement does add a slight bit of friction to the first stage of the trigger pull, but not a lot. The trigger pull is a bit longer than most single action triggers to account for this.

Accuracy: I averaged about 325 FPS shooting 5 rounds through my chronograph. It was not very hot out and I would expect higher FPS in warmer weather. In terms of accuracy, I was hoping to get closer to a 2"-3" 10 shot grouping from 30 feet away, but eneded up with a 4"-5" grouping.

Build Quality: The HK VP9 is a well made gun, which we have come to expect from Umarex. It's made of metal and polymer similar to the real steel version, with a metal slide and polymer frame. You will find more metal parts in the slide catch release, magazine ejector, barrel, magazine and also several internal parts. Fit and finish is good, I had no issues shooting the pistol when I tested it out.

Realism: This Umarex replica is a very close copy of the real steel H&K VP9 9mm pistol. You will even find HK licensing throughout the gun. Some details that make this airgun very believable are the blowback action, full size drop out metal magazine, cut out ejection port with 9mm markings, recessed barrel, a working slide catch release, and a trigger safety. One giveaway that the Umarex HK VP9 is not the real deal is the safety switch on the right hand side of the frame, but it is fairly small so it does not catch the eye easily.

Pros:

  • Nice crisp blowback action
  • Full size drop out all metal magazine
  • Metal parts where where you would expect them to be
  • Accurate looking replica of the original HK VP9
  • HK Licensed via Umarex
  • White dot sights easy to sight in your target on most backgrounds
  • Working trigger safety
  • Rail for accessories like lasers and tac lights
  • Warning instructions are nice and discreet

Cons:

  • Sights are none adjustable
  • Did not perform great in my accuracy test, a bit spread out
  • Comes in clamshell packaging as opposed to a box

In this Field Test Shooting Video Review I test out the Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in my Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting Range. It’s getting a bit colder now that’s it’s mid October here in Canada BC but inside the Sea Can I keep things at least around 15-16 degrees Celsius (61 degrees Fahrenheit) while testing out my airguns. Temperature aside the Sea Can Indoor Airgun Shooting range is dry and well light, perfect for multi-camera video recording.

The Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol reminds me a lot of the ISSC M22 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in terms of how it operates, they both have that same full size dop out metal magazine that has that moving nozzle for more efficient CO2 usage. Both BB guns also both have that “half” or reduced cycle blowback operation which again probably increases CO2 efficiency and power. The Umarex HK VP9 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol looks and feels great in the hand and has a nice snappy blowback operation with easy to use sights and a smooth trigger. I just wish I was able to get a little bit tighter grouping during my field test shooting video but sometimes it’s just me, sometimes it can just be that specific gun. Let me know how yours performs for you?
