Note: The following description pertains to the KWC non-licenced version of the Legends P-08.

Trigger Pull: The Single Action Only trigger pull on the KWC P-08 Luger CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is really nice, it has a super short take-up with a very smooth light release. There really is no reset since the entire action is so short so quick follow shots are fast and predictable. Of course since this is a single action only trigger with no external hammer, you will need to pull the toggle back to chamber a BB and pre-cock the hammer for the first shot, the Blowback action will do this automatically for you on follow-up shots until the magazine is empty and the toggle locks back.

Accuracy: I did find the KWC P-08 Luger shot a bit high for me (about 3 inches at 30 feet out) and since the sights are nonadjustable, I would have to hold low on the target to make up for this but the KWC P-08 did shot well centered horizontally. Over all the 10 shot grouping at 30 feet out was very good with the bulk of the shots staying within a 1 inch pattern and three shot coming outside stretching it out to about 2.5 inches.

Build Quality: The KWC P-08 Luger CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is well built being that it is pretty much entirely metal. It weighs in at a beefy 1.84 pounds which is very close to the 1.92 pounds of the genuine real steel Luger. The only plastic to speak of would be in the grips and also the gas tube. As is with pretty much all KWC guns, they are powder coated so the finish looks great but can wear off in areas that protrude and or see metal on metal friction.

Realism: The KWC P-08 Luger is a really accurate replica of the actual Luger P-08 with as far as I can tell all the same working parts and ability to field strip like the real steel version. I did find the finish to be perhaps a bit dark, I would have liked to have seen a more grey or bluish tint to it to get the KWC Luger P-08 more in line with the blued finish found on the real version.


  • Nice heavy blowback toggle that locks back on last shot
  • Lots of metal and good overall weight, similar to real steel version
  • Decent fps and accuracy.
  • Very good replicas of a real Luger P-08 with all working parts
  • Really nice short and light single action trigger
  • Field Strippable
  • Comes in 4.5mm Steel BB and 6mm Plastic Airsoft versions


  • Paint wears off in high spots noticeably, seems to be typical with all KWC guns
  • Non-adjustable sights that seemed to shoot a bit high
  • Black paint may be a bit too dark, more grey or blue tone would have made it more realistic

Comments: Another great classic ultra-realistic pistol from KWC! It's really nice to see more and more of these classic pistols showing up and from multiple manufacturers. I liked the Umarex version which was all metal and a good overall Luger replica, KWC took it to the next level by adding blowback and a full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and BB's and by giving us the option of buying the KWC Luger P-08 in either 4.5mm Steel BB or 6mm Plastic Airsoft versions. If you're a Luger fan looking for ultra-realism, this is the one to go with!

Great news, we just received our shipment of KWC P-08 Luger CO2 Blowback Pistols and yes we have them in both 4.5mm Steel BB and 6mm Plastic Airsoft so this news should make everyone very happy!

This shipment is only for our Canada Replica Airguns Store at this time but we hope to have them in the US Replica Airguns Store shortly when we add the KWC line.

The KWC Mauser is still a bit of a ways off since it was still a sample product when I tested it.

So make sure to pick yours up ASAP before we sell out of them as we have limited supplies and if you haven't already watched my Table Top Video and Field Test Video for the KWC P-08 Luger then make sure to do so.

Make sure to also checkout my full Table Top Review where you will find more details and specifications for the KWC Luger P-08 Airsoft replica pistol which is virtually the same gun as the 4.5mm BB version with the only real difference being the ammo type and the amount of rounds per magazine (21 rounds for the 4.5mm BB version and 15 rounds for the 6mm Airsoft version).

I have also already made a full Field Test Shooting Review for the Airsoft version of this CO2 Blowback Pistol where I got very similar results using slightly heavier .25 gram Airsoft BB's so again, make sure to checkout that YouTube Video Filed Test Review.

Basically in this YouTube video, I shoot the 4.5mm Steel BB version of the KWC P-08 Luger head to head against the Airsoft Version to see how they compare in terms of Feet Per Second speed and Accuracy from30 feet away from a paper target using a semi rested shooting stance. As expected the heavier 4.5mm Steel BB's shot a bit slower but did seem to have a slight advantage in the accuracy department.
