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.
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.
