Type: BB Rifle.
Manufacturer: Umarex.
Model: NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun
Materials: Mostly all plastic construction.
Weight: 2 pounds (908 grams).
Length: 29.5 inches (749mm).
Barrel Length: 12 inches (30 cm) smoothbore barrel.
Propulsion: Single CO2 cartridge.
Action: Pump repeater.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 10 rounds.
FPS: 450+ fps.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun is pretty decent, there is a short task up and fairly easy release as the pump action not only turns the rotary magazine but also cocks the internal hammer/striker system. So you will need to pump it before your first shot and after each shot.

Accuracy: Starting with the velocity test we first placed a brand new 12 gram CO2 into the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun and loaded up the 10 rounds rotary magazine with Daisy Zinc Coated 4.5 mm Steel BB’s. The temperature was around 22 degrees Celsius which is 72 degrees Fahrenheit in the sea can indoor shooting range so not too warm or cold. The claimed fps from Umarex is 450, We were able to get an average of 403fps with the fastest shot hitting 425fps and the slowest shooting down to 388fps. So a bit under the Umarex claimed velocity but in the ball park. Next we performed the accuracy test for the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun and since the sights are non adjustable you kind of hope that where you aim is where the shots go but if they don’t then you will need to adjust your aim point just a bit. Out of the box the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun did shoot a bit low but was fairly bang on side to side so when shooting at around 30 feet out you will need to aim just a tad over the intended target. Out of 10 shots, 8 rounds where all within a nice 1.5 inch grouping with a couple of flyers that we kind of want to keep out of this test because it was probably more me than the gun causing them to go off a bit. 1.5 inches is very good for a 4.5mm Steel BB Airgun!

Build Quality: The Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun is almost all plastic which is not a bad thing in terms of quality and durability. The fact that it only weighs in at 2 pounds may make it feel kind of light and cheap but in a drop or fall situation it means it will most lily not sustain any damage because of the light weight. Most of todays airguns when made out of metals generally are made out of pot metal or zinc alloy which is a nice heavy metal that looks and feels great but is not super strong so when you drop a heavier gun made out of this material it can easily get damaged.

Realism: The Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun looks like a traditional pump action shotgun and even has a little bit of a recessed barrel to make it more believable but it is smaller in size since it is designed more for younger and smaller shooters. The light weight is not only a giveaway but makes ti feel more like a toy than a real gun. If you can ignore that then hopefully you can enjoy the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun for what it is which is a low cost compact BB rifle made for customs interested in Airguns liek the Red Ryder but that perhaps want a bit more power.

Pros:

  • Low cost CO2 rifle great for all ages and sizes.
  • Has a fiber optic front sight.
  • Comes in a nice looking two tone Black/FDE color scheme.
  • Fairly easy to pump since the pumping action is not required to activate a spring or compress air.
  • Built in manual thumb safety.
  • Stock and high check rest position feel good and a good size length for smaller younger shooters.
  • Rotary drop out magazine holds 10 4.5mm steel BB’s for quick follow up shots.
  • Trigger feels pretty good, short and fairly light.
  • Full ambidextrous design.
  • Perhaps a step up for entry level shooter over a Red Ryder type BB rifle in terms of power.
  • Overall a decent looking air rifle.

Cons:

  • Mostly plastic, so a bit on the light weight side.
  • Sights are not adjustable in any way.
  • May be a bit cramped for larger shooters.

Comments: The Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun is not going to win any prizes for quality and realism but keep in mind it is really designed more for entry level younger shooters getting into the Airgun hobby. For them this will be not so intimidating as a larger, heavier more realistic version of a replica Shotgun. We think it will be realistic enough for most new Airgun Shooters and in terms of performance and features it is for sure a step up form something like a Red Ryder BB Rifle. We are looking forward to my upcoming Field Test Shooting Review out what the actual velocity is and what kind of groupings I can get shooting 30 feet down range on a paper target.

its a shotgun point and shoot

Pros Spare magnetic Magazines cheap and easy to load. Fixed sights front and back ? its a shotgun point and shoot . Fires with empty magazine so 11 to 12 shots per mag = 40 + good power shots / co2 cartridge . Triggers good, pull bang and this one shoots straight. Read manual For Drop free rotary box magazine with 10-round capacity not as easy as should be, practise a few times before showing off. 7 years old and up With Adult supervision (co2 and loading) tested. Co2 powered means stroke is easy,short,fast,and that makes for some reason very satisfying shooting. Recommended for Canadians shooting in doors (with all windows covered loud music and hammer hits between shots). Cons Yes plastic unknown durability. # 2 con no co2 wrench storage--its plastic mould one in.

Type: BB Rifle. Manufacturer: Umarex. Model: NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun Materials: Mostly all plastic construction. Weight: 2 pounds (908 grams). Length: 29.5 inches (749mm). Barrel Length: 12 inches (30 cm) smoothbore barrel. Propulsion: Single CO2 cartridge. Action: Pump repeater. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 10 rounds. FPS: 450+ fps. All in all the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun shot right around 400fps which is for sure a step up for something like a Red Ryder BB Rifle that at best can shoot 300fps. You also don’t have to work the pump as hard as you would the lever on a Red Ryder since the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun is CO2 powered rather than spring powered. I also feel like the Umarex NXG Pump Shot was more accurate than the Red Ryder at least for me but that said some people can hit a nickel all day long with their Red Ryders! There are not a lot of Pump Action Looking Airguns out there in 4.5mm Steel BB versions and in more compact easier for younger or smaller shooters so if you fall into that category and want something in a shotgun format then the Umarex NXG CO2 BB Pump Shotgun may be perfect for you.
