Beretta Elite II Steel BB Airgun

Type: BB air pistol
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Beretta Elite II
Materials: Mostly plastic with some metal parts
Weight: 1.5 pounds
Barrel: 5.25 inches, metal non-rifled
Propulsion: CO2 x 1
Action: Semi auto, double action
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's
Ammunition Capacity: 19 round magazine
FPS: 480

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on this gun is about medium, the trigger first cocks the hammer and then near the end there is a break point where the hammer releases.

Accuracy: I was a bit surprised by the poor results I achieved with this gun shooting from a standing non-rested position from about 20 feet away. I have seen other reviews with much better results, so I will blame the results on me this time and maybe I will have another go with this gun on a different day.

Build Quality: This is a mostly all plastic gun with the exception of some internal parts and the drop out metal magazine. That said it does feel solid and well-built with good overall fit and finish.

Realism: The Umarex Beretta Elite II is a replica of the Beretta 92G Elite II (9 mm) and does resemble the real steel in many ways with the acceptation of the extended magazine on the actual Beretta 92G Elite II. For the most part, none of the mechanical parts are functional; like the hammer, slide release, safety, and take down leaver. These parts are all moulded into the plastic, the only acceptation to this is the magazine release. Another let down as far as realism goes are the screw holes on the right hand side of the gun.

Pros:

  • Low cost licensed replica of the Beretta 92G Elite II.
  • High 480 FPS.
  • Drop free 19 round metal magazine.
  • Picatinny rail for accessories like tactical lights and lasers.

Cons:

  • Mostly plastic construction.
  • Didn't do well for me in the accuracy department (Others have done much better).
  • Ugly screw holes on the left hand side of the gun.

Comments: This is another low-cost replica air gun from Umarex designed for the entry level buyer. It's actually a pretty well made gun in terms of durability but it does lack the details like operational parts and more metal throughout. The Beretta Elite's saving graces are its high 480 FPS, drop out metal magazine and licensed Beretta trademarks. For about $50, you do get a good overall replica BB pistol.

Great for the price

Bought this gun as an all day backpacking and shooting anything for cheap in the woods kind of purpose...And it does that just great ! For 50$ it's well worth the price, although I bought 2 sets of spares mags (4 total) that cost me almost as much. Good news is they are compatible with a few low entry Umarex guns. My recommendation: TDP45 with 2 spare mags for 20$ adding up to the price of the Elite II is more worth it and just as accurate and fast.

This is a table top review of the Umarex Beretta Elite II CO2 BB pistol. I show you around the gun and walk you through its basic operation and handling along with a comparison side by side of the Cybergun GSG 92, another Beretta 92 FS styled replica. I have included a target example showing you a grouping I got from 20 feet out with this gun.

The Umarex Beretta Elite II isn't going to win any awards for build quality and craftsmanship but it is a well built and solid gun with a high 480 FPS. If your on a budget and want a Beretta replica this air gun will do the job nicely!
