Type:BB Pistol Manufacturer:Umarex Model: Beretta M92 A1 Materials: Full metal Weight: 1.1 kg (2.4 pounds) Barrel: 111mm (4.38 inches), non-rifled Power Source: 12g CO2 x 1 Action: Semi- and full-auto blowback, single and double action Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs Ammo Capacity: 18 rounds FPS: 310
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 BB Pistol is like what you would expect from a real Beretta 92 A1, it offers both single and double action but most of the time you will be shooting in single action since the blowback cocks the hammer after each shot. Single action has a little bit of take-up but has a predictable release that is not overly light or heavy. Double action shots are longer and heavier which is as expected.
Accuracy: When I tested the accuracy of the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 BB Pistol, I was able to get all 10 shots within a 2 inch grouping, not bad for a heavy blowback BB pistol. I did notice the shots were a little low and to the right so some shot placement adjustments may be required depending on your shooting range since the sights on the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol are non-adjustable. The blowback action is nice and strong and the trigger is also very typical to what you would find on a Beretta M92. Shooting in full-auto mode is a lot of fun and really gets your hand rocking. You should be able to get around 4 magazines in semi-auto shooting mode and closer to 3 magazine in full-auto shooting mode.
Build Quality: Very good, with almost all metal construction, good weight and craftsmanship. Don't quote me on this but I have a feeling the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol may be made by KWC, if this is the case then we know to expect the same quality as we have found with other KWC full blowback airguns which is pretty good overall. There may be some wear in the high spots of the finish over time but I kind of like this since it gives the gun a more realistic look.
Realism: This is by far the closest Beretta Model 92 out there, even the magazine butt plate looks the part. The safety is true to form and it is full licensed and trademarked throughout the gun via Umarex. I'm not sure if the real steel Umarex ever offered full-auto or not but we can look past this for the sake of how much fun it is going to be shooting in full-auto! The only negative aspect in terms of realism is the white warning writing on the left side of the slide.
Your choice of shooting in either semi-auto or full-auto mode
Really nice replica of the original Beretta 92 A1
Great weight and feel to it
All metal design, fit and finish is very good
Strong slide spring so it should have heavy blowback action
Realistic working safety and working slide catch and release
Full-size drop-out metal magazine that holds BBs and CO2
Can be field stripped like original Beretta 92 A1
Fully Beretta licensed
Will probably eat CO2 especially in full-auto mode
Ugly white warning instruction on the slide
Comments: I know the KWC M92 and Cybergun GSG 92 have been out for a while and the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol is along the same lines, but I do like that it is a true Beretta replica rather than the Taurus copy. I like that Umarex went the extra mile and made the magazine look the part with a much shorter butt plate and adding semi- and full-auto right out of the box with a dedicated selector switch is pretty cool too. I really like the Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol from Umarex, it's what many of us have been waiting for, a true licensed Model 92 and to top it off we even got full-auto thrown in for fun. :)
I give it a 4 for quality as I first experienced the airgun consistently shooting low and to the right of POA (by at least 6 inches - hence the '2' accuracy rating). I needed to adjust my aim for that, but doing so had me blocking my target to a certain extent to get the shot I needed. I would love to hear from the others who mentioned the "minor mods" they did to improve the accuracy of the gun. BTW, there is a 'hop up' within the barrel of the gun however, I found it to be ineffective. I'm not sure if others had similar experiences. Again, I'd love to hear from others about that.
After about 1500 shots (equiv. to one bottle of Umarex steel bbs), other functions of the gun began breaking down (the safety/de-cocking mechanism stopped working and the gun kept firing in full auto mode after the first shot, even though I had it on semi auto). That being said, I love the Beretta class of firearm and I've not yet given up on this one. It's accuracy of design and weight/balance is what drew me to it. Perhaps it was just a case of getting a lemon this one time; I returned the defective airgun to my retailer earlier today who promptly exchanged it for a new replacement. I will be testing it further and hope to get better results, which would then warrant a higher rating. Stay tuned :-)

so far - the best of the Beretta 92 series
newly released and, in my opinion with all things considered - the best of the bunch. Absolutely a perfect replica in every respect - WELL worth the extra couple of dollars. Fully enclosed, full sized drop out magazine. Fit, finish and weight are bang on and true to the original. Grips are very good, but not spectacular. The pistol functions absolutely true to the original in every respect - safety decock, full blowback and slide function, slide holds back on the final shot, fully field strip-able - all of the bells and whistles, and all in the right places. SO much done right . . .so why, oh why the awful, awful accuracy? I was consistently shooting 6 inches low at a rested position - apparently a widely reported problem - and I am at a total loss to guess as to why they could get soooo much right, yet couldn't get this very important function so wrong. Take a white Sharpie paint pen (local art store), put a new white dot on the the barrel saddle right below the sight - and the problem is pretty much solved. Despite that wee wrinkle - a lovely gun . . .my favourite 92 series so far . . .and apparently I have them all

AMAZING GUN - INCREDIBLE VALUE
I really can't say enough about this Pistol. From the quality of the fit and finish to it's authenticity. It is true to the original in both weight and features. Al the parts are working and the gun feels so real in your hand. It shoots very snappy and the recoil is so smooth and cool feeling. With a very minor adjustment the gun shoots true and accurate with most shots in the 1" - 1.5" spread in the semi-auto mode. I was also pleasantly surprised in full- auto mode the spread was tight but you need to hold the gun firmly and focus on sighting the target. The magazine only holds 18 BB's and not the 28 advertised unless there's an optional magazine. This is a fun gun to shoot, and a great experience. Pick one up while you can. Terrific value at this price.

Great gun. Accuracy was lacking at first, but some quick mods fixed that and now getting dead centre 1-1.25 inch groups. Magazine is only 18 shots, not 28 as stated in description. Expect to get 4-5 full mags of semi shooting and 3 on full auto. Check out my review on YouTube under username avee8tor76 for review and accuracy shooting tests.
In this Field Test Shooting video I take out my Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol and place five shots through my Chrony Chronograph to find out what the real word velocity performance will be and I also test the accuracy of the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol by shooting ten rounds down range at a paper target from 30 feet back using a semi rested shooting position(Gun rested on a sandbag, standing in the back). I also include some slow motion video of the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 blowback action close up in both semi auto and full auto modes.
For the Feet Per Second portion of my test I used a brand new CO2 along with 5.1 grain RWS nickel coated 4.5mm Steel BB's. The temperature outside was 15 degrees Celsius (59 Fahrenheit), so not super warm or cold, I would expect a little higher fps on a warmed day. Umarex claims a velocity of 310 fps, I was able to get a five shot average of 322 which was nice to see a higher than claimed fps for the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol.
Moving on to the Accuracy portion of my Field Test, I was able to get all 10 shots within a 2 inch grouping, not bad for a heavy blowback BB pistol. I did notice the shots where a little low and to the right so some shot placement adjustments may be required depending on your shooting range since the sights on the Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB Pistol are non-adjustable. The blowback action is nice and strong and the trigger is also very typical to what you would find on a Beretta M92. Shooting in full auto mode is a lot of fun and really gets your hand rocking. You should be able to get around 4 magazines in semi auto shooting mode and closer to 3 magazine in full auto shooting mode.

Last summer I made some "Full Auto Fun" videos and well... I had a lot of fun making them and of course shooting the full auto airguns. So I got to thinking I should make some more Full Auto Fun videos again this summer, at least for some of the new Full Auto guns I have not made these videos for yet.
So to kick it off, I brought out my Umarex Beretta Mod. 92 A1 CO2 BB Pistol and shot up some clay pigeons and water filled cans in Full Auto Mode of course :)
