Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Beretta APX Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is a little different than that of the real steel APX. On the real steel APX there is actually a trigger safety and the actual gun uses a striker based system with a fairly short reset and take-up. On the replica airgun version the tiger does not have a built in safety and the reset and take-up are much longer (full length). I have read that both the real steal and BB versions of the APX both have about 6 pounds trigger pulls but I personally felt like the airgun version was heavier than that, perhaps because of the long pull. Overall the Beretta APX trigger is acceptable but not my favorite.

Accuracy: I have not shot this pistol, but based on similar blowback stick magazine BB air pistols from Umarex with around 400 FPS performance, I know that it will have a medium blowback feel and should shoot pretty close to the claimed 395 fps. I also expect at least a 2 inch or smaller 10 shot grouping from 30 feet back.

Build Quality: Very good, Beretta APX feels heavier than 1.5 pounds in the hand, perhaps because it is a compact gun. The metal slide, metal stick mag and internal metal parts all help to balance off the polymer frame nicely. Fit and finish is also good.

Realism: Other than the added safety and missing trigger safety, this is a really close replica to the real steel APX. The added safety does not stand out too much and does serve a purpose. The missing trigger safety could have been added for show at least, if an actual working safety could not be added. Other than that the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is very close to the Beretta APX, with its full licensing, open ejection port, recessed barrel working slide catch release and blowback operation.

Pros:

  • Great weight and feel, build quality seems really good
  • Really nice replica of the original Beretta APX in most ways
  • Working slide catch and release
  • Fully Beretta licensed
  • Easy to see white dot sights front and back
  • Recessed barrel and open ejection port for added realism
  • Lower Picatinny rail for laser or tactical light
  • Stick magazine but plate gives the elusion of a full size magazine and covers the CO2 tab
  • Warning instruction are nice and discreet!

Cons:

  • Trigger is a bit long and perhaps heavier than the real steel APX trigger. It also does not have the trigger safety.
  • Stick magazine rather than a full size magazine
  • Sights are non-adjustable, which is common on airguns like this one

Comments: It's always nice to get another airgun replica for fans of that particular real steel gun so they have a low cost shooting option they can use in a lot more locations for some safe trigger time. The Umarex Beretta APX Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is a great addition for sure and it's also nice that it is somewhat Glock-like in looks and operation for those Glock fans out there that are having a tuff time locating a Glock airgun replica :) Other than my trigger beef, I really like this gun.

Beretta APX

Received the Beretta APX in the mail only two days after ordering. Excellent build quality. Good accuracy. Blowback operates well. Although I agree with Michael the trigger pull is a bit long, I don’t actually find it is hard at all. I really like the trigger! If I had to identify a con, a full mag would have been nice. Having said that the butt plate on the mag does give the appearance of a full size magazine, rather than a stick mag. I love this gun. Price is very reasonable as well!

Beretta CO2 APX BB Blow Back

A Winner For Sure Being the proud owner of many repica pistols the APX stands out in the fit and feel category. In the end I find you never seem to get bored with a replica pistol that feels good in the hand. The APX feel in the hand is addicting. Having shot powder handguns my hole life I find small pros with all the replicas. My APX has accuracy with me shooting it. 30 feet 2" group always free hand. Power with mine is above par for these pistols. 427 420 414 400 400 390 fps ... 5 sec. breaks. Real good accuracy from standing 10 yards away no wind. Also it looks Hot !

Awesome for price

I ordered this pistol four days ago and got it today. Feels great in the hand has plenty of weight looks the part and the blowback is pretty hard. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a blow back metal build handgun.

It feels like I have been waiting forever to get my hands on the Umarex Legends MP 40 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm Steel BB Full Auto Machine Gun. I first saw the Legends MP 40 at SHOT Show this year in Las Vegas and immediately loved it, it was my top pick for the show and I predicted it would be a super hot item in terms of sales.

What's not to love about the Umarex Legends MP 40 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm Steel BB Full Auto Machine Gun? It's pretty much all metal weighing in at close to 8 pounds, The Legends MP has a max fps of up to 465, shoots in both semi and full auto and has a high capacity all metal 52 round magazine that holds not only 1 CO2 but 2 CO2 for close to 200 rounds of semi auto shooting or about 140 shots in full auto. I really look forward to my Field Test Shooting Review of the Umarex Legends MP 40!

Not to be out shadowed or forgotten in the preview video, I also show off another 2017 SHOT Show CO2 Blowback Air Pistol, the Umarex Beretta APX! Right away the Umarex Beretta APX feels nice and solid in the hand weighing in at around 1.5 pounds with a heavy metal slide and really high quality plastic or polymer frame. You will find some nice details like a cut out ejection port and recessed barrel and of course full Beretta licensing from Umarex. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol has a pretty decent claimed fps of close to 400 and a 20 round stick magazine that when inserted has that full size magazine look to it.

You'll also find other nice details like white dot sights front and back and a working slide catch release. My only gripe with the Beretta APX is the trigger, it does not ahed the trigger safety you would find on the real steel Beretta APX and the action is very long and perhaps a bit heavy. Other than that the Umarex Beretta APX looks to be a really nice replica airgun.
