Type: BB Pistol
Materials: Metal with ABS plastic grips
Weight: 1.1 kg (2.4 lbs)
Barrel: 152.4 mm (6 in), metal, non-rifled, smoothbore
Propulsion: 12 g CO2 x 1
Action: Semi-auto blowblack, double-action only
Ammunition Type: 4.5 mm steel BBs
Ammunition Capacity: 20 rounds
Trigger Pull: On the medium to heavy side. The trigger pull on this gun is a little bit longer and tougher on the 9XP compared to the discontinued Umarex SA177. The gun shoots a little harder though so the internal spring might be slightly heavier.
Accuracy: I shot the Umarex 9XP at a target from 30 feet away in a semi-rested position and it performed quite well! I had a nice 5-6 shot group dead center on the target well under a 1 inch diameter and then 4 shots came outside extending the grouping to about 2 inches, again another well centered grouping!
Build Quality: It has good weight and craftsmanship. The 9XP shares a lot of the same internal parts as the Umarex SA177 with some minor cosmetic changes to make it look less like a Glock.
Realism: The 9XP is essentially a reskin of the SA177, modeled after the popular Glock carry pistol widely used by governmental agencies. It uses blowback action to simulate a real firearm and the metal slide and integrated accessory rail add to the overall realism of this gun.
Comments: The Umarex 9XP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is a nice replacement for the SA177. The trigger on the 9XP is a bit heavier but not by much. During the field test shooting, the 9XP shot at a speed much higher, coming in at an average of 412 fps for my 5 shot string. So if you have been wanting an SA177 but cannot find one used, grab yourself one of the Umarex 9XPs, you will not be disappointed.

A few years back the Umarex SA177 disappeared off the face of the earth, well not really, it simply juts stopped being made and fairly quickly retailers ran out of stock... As with anything that people want but can not get any more, the demand went up and all of a sudden everyone seemed to want to get their hand on an Umarex SA177 Blowback BB Pistol. You might ask why Umarex stopped making what at the time was a fairly popular CO2 BB Pistol? Well if you know anything about Glock, they do not like it all that much when a company makes a product that they feel infringes upon their intellectual properties and copy writes. Did the SA177 look like a Glock, well sure it had some similarities and perhaps Glock felt it was a bit too similar and so may have kindly asked Umarex to stop making it? At least that's what I think happened :) Read full article here: https://www.replicaairguns.com/2015/5/29/umarex-sa177-and-9xp-table-top-comparison-review.html Buy the Umarex 9XP in Canada: https://www.replicaairguns.ca/umarex-9xp-metal-slide-co2-bb-pistol
I wanted to not only do my Field Test Shooting review for the Umarex 9XP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol but also compare it to the discontinued Umarex SA177 since both guns share most of their internal parts. I had a good idea that both airguns would perform very similarly with perhaps the newer 9XP having the edge due to it being almost 5 years newer. A with all my current BB Pistol Field Test Shooting Reviews, I test out the real world Feet Per Second performance by shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph to see what they average out at, of course I use a brand new CO2 for this and my choice of BB was RWS Zinc coated 5.1 grain Steel BB's.
