Trigger Pull: This gun has a medium trigger pull - the first 3/4 of the trigger pull actuates the hammer with a noticeable click when the hammer is all the way back and ready to fire. The last part of the trigger pull is much lighter. With practice you will be able to engage the hammer and then fire the gun in a kind of simulated single action mode.
Accuracy: Medium to good.
Build Quality: In its price range this air gun offers good build quality and value, it feels solid and well-built and has a very hefty feel for a compact size gun. I would have liked to have seen the magazine made from metal rather than plastic.
Realism: This gun is loosely styled after a Sig Sauer 226-228. It is lacking a cut-out ejection port that would have added greatly to its realism. The grips are also molded into the handle giving the gun durability but not authenticity. I would have also liked to see a heftier magazine as it's made out of plastic and feels a bit cheap compared to the rest of the gun. I do like the fact that the barrel tip has a large diameter opening making the gun look more like the larger caliber weapon it is styled after.
Comments: I found this Umarex Blowback BB gun to be a really accurate, responsive and enjoyable gun to shoot. It is very compact yet has nice heft and the blowback action is snappy giving you the feeling of a real automatic weapon. The fact that this gun is so inexpensive and yet delivers great power and CO2 efficiency makes it not only affordable to buy but also shoot on a daily basis.
