Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex P08 CO2 BB Replica is rather heavy but since it is a double action only trigger, I did not expect it to be light. There is a fair amount of take up with the entire pull being about 9-10 pounds with the release point happening right at the very back almost touching the trigger well. The release is not very predictable when trying to shoot slowly but this does teach a firm yet relaxed grip to get consistent shots. This type of trigger I would consider to be a great double action training aid as it teaches proper grip and trigger control while building strength.

Accuracy: I shot the Umarex P08 BB Pistol at a target from 20 feet away in a semi-rested position, and it performed very good getting a solid 1.5 inch 10 shot grouping that was very well centered on the target. The P08 almost got a 1 inch group with the acceptation of two flyers. The sights are non-adjustable so adjusting the Umarex P08 BB gun is not possible unless using a modified aim point! My initial Chrony testing puts this classic BB replica at right around 430 fps which was higher than the claimed 410, and keep in mind my test day was not a super-hot day so there is more room for higher fps with this air pistol. I managed to get six 21 round magazines worth of shots which is a very respectable 120+ shots per single CO2.

Build Quality: The Umarex P08 CO2 non-blowback BB Pistol is almost all metal with the exception of the grip which is always nice to see! I found the fit and finish to be very good with a black-grey-ish satin paint job . I did notice the paint was wearing off kind of quickly on the high points which I don't mind with this airgun since it will give it a more aged look that I feel is more fitting for this classic World War replica.

Realism: The Umarex Legends Luger P08 CO2 BB Airgun is very close to the real steel P08 (Luger) and even has the P.08 markings on it. If you where to put a real P08 side by side they would look like mirror images so in terms of looks, this replica gun has it. If you're looking for working parts there are not a lot other than the trigger, magazine release, and safety. But then again there is less to go wrong!

Pros:

  • Pretty much all metal and has a nice heavy weight to it
  • Accuracy to the original is very good, lots of detail
  • Magazine release and safety work like the real version
  • Nice wide open recessed barrel adds to the believability
  • Good concealment of CO2 cartridge and tab
  • Got well over the claimed 410 fps, more around 430 FPS
  • Got 120 plus shots out of 1 CO2 Cartridge
  • Very good accuracy (1.5 inches) and well centered on target
  • Glad to see another World War BB replica pistol!

Cons:

  • No blowback and not a lot of moving parts
  • Finish seems to wear off pretty quick on the high points but this may enhance the look for some?
  • Pretty heavy double action trigger, around 9-10 pounds

Comments:
There are not too many older Classic Airguns out there from the World War era so it was great to see this one added to the Umarex line-up. Now all we need is a Single Action Army Revolver ;) I am glad that Umarex made sure to make this gun look authentic, maybe even perhaps over functionality since there are not a lot of working parts. With that said, everything that does work, works well and you can expect to get lots of accurate and powerful shots from a single CO2. The fps consistency is really good on this one. Being that there are not many World War replica airguns on the market this is a must have for any collector of such guns.

This video is a walkthrough review of the Umarex P08 (Luger) Non-blowback CO2 BB Gun Replica. I show off this airgun close up from all angles and point out the mostly metal construction and go through the features and benefits of this Classic BB pistol Replica. I also do a quick pre-test with my Chronograph to get an idea of the fps performance and then shoot the P08 BB pistol from 20 feet out on target for some accuracy results.
