Type: BB pistol
Model: Makarov Ultra
Materials: Full Metal
Weight: 680 g (1.5 lb)
Barrel: 3.5 Inches, Smoothbore
Power Source: CO2
Action:Semi-Automatic Single Action Only
Ammo Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 16 Rounds
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Legends Makarov Ultra is fairly long but in terms of resistance it is about a medium pull. There is no double action so single action only but the pull is longer than most single action triggers to accommodate the BB chamber mechanism on the magazine. Basically a BB is pushed into the breach/barrel during the first half of the trigger pull, and then the trigger is released.
Accuracy: I tested the Umarex Makarov Ultra Legends from 30 feet back shooting at a paper target using a semi-rested position (sand bag up front and standing in the back). My 10 shot grouping was just a bit below the bull’s eye but fairly well center left and right. All 10 BBs stayed within 2 inches with most of them grouping even tighter than that. Not bad at all! This pistol also got a respectable 333 fps on this cool day so I would expect it to hit the claimed 350 fps during summer weather.
Build Quality: Being a pretty much an all metal gun the Umarex Makarov Ultra feels solid and sturdy. The only plastic parts on the Umarex Makarov Ultra are the grips and some magazine parts like the CO2 tab. The painted finish is a nice metallic dark grey, a definite improvement over the previous Umarex non-blowback Makarov glossy black finish.
Realism: The Umarex Legends Makarov is a licensed replica of the Makarov PM 9x18 Russian military and police pistol. It is a very close copy in both looks and feels, has a very heavy blowback action and field strips just like a real Makarov. You'll also find a full size drop out magazine that holds the CO2 and BBs and a working slide catch/release that locks back when the magazine is empty.
Comments: Umarex really addresses the majority of the shortcomings found on the original non-blowback 4.5mm Steel BB shooting Makarov. They added the much asked for blowback operation, made the slide catch/release operational, upgraded the magazine to a full size drop out CO2 and BB magazine, gave it a more realistic paint job and even replaced the plastic safety with a metal safety. The only trade-off is the loss of the short take-up single action trigger and perhaps a few fps. All in all a big improvement over the first version which even today is still a very good BB pistol.

My last CO2 Blowback 4.5mm Steel BB Pistol Field Test Review from my latest acquisitions of New Umarex Air pistols. For many people that already liked the Umarex Makarov CO2 BB pistol, the Umarex Legends Makarov blowback version may just have everything you where looking for that was missing from version One? Well let's see... It has blowback - check! It has a working slide catch/release - check! It has a full size dropout metal magazine - check! And it's still all metal, field strip-able and has single a single action trigger! Sounds pretty good so far... So how does the Umarex Makarov Ultra CO2 Blowback 4.5mm Steel BB Pistol shoot? Well like the other new Umarex CO2 Blowback BB pistols I just tested, the Beretta 84 FS and the Mauser C96, I was not disappointed.
