Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P 40 BB Pistol

Type: BB Pistols
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Smith and Wesson M&P 40
Materials: Metal and Polymer
Weight: 730 g (25.8 oz)
Barrel: 3.5", Smoothbore
Power Source: 12g CO2 x1
Action: Semi-Automatic Blowback, Single-Action
Ammo Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 15 Rounds
FPS: 310

Trigger Pull: The single action only trigger pull on the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P 40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is very nice and smooth. There is some take up required for the release, but the break point is very smooth, perhaps a little too smooth since there is no real noticeable resistance. You will have to get used to the range in the trigger pull in which the release takes place. Since there is no external hammer you will need to draw the slide back in order to cock the internal striker.

Accuracy: Make sure to checkout my full Field Test Shooting Video for the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol where I test out this fun S&W M&P40 BB shooting replica by shooting some BBs through my chronograph and also at a paper target to find out how it performs. In summary I was able to get an average of around 300 FPS and accuracy in the 2 inch size groupings from 30 feet away. Not bad for a full blowback short barrel CO2 BB pistol. It did shoot a little low so some manual target sighting adjustments may be required.

Build Quality: Very good, with metal and plastic construction where you would find it on the real steel S&W M&P40. I am fairly certain the the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is made by KWC which has produced some nice quality examples of other full blowback replica BB and airsoft pistols. As with most KWC powder-coated airguns, you will get some wear in the high spots of the finish over time but this is true even with real steel blued guns.

Realism: This is by far the best example of a 4.5mm BB shooting Smith & Wesson M&P out there. I have had several real steel M&P40 owners comment on how accurate this BB copy really is, including how the barrel drops from its locked position and angles down and up during blowback operation. You even get interchangeable grip backstraps to accommodate different sized hands. And of course all the mechanical parts function as you would expect them to, including being able to fully field strip the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

Pros:

  • Most accurate looking steel BB shooting replica of the S&W M&P40 to date
  • Good weight and feel to it
  • Realistic working safety and working slide catch and release
  • Metal and plastic parts where you would find them on the real steel version
  • Full size drop-out metal magazine that holds BBs and CO2
  • Can be field stripped like original Smith & Wesson M&P40
  • Fully Smith & Wesson licensed via Umarex
  • Rail for adding on accessories
  • White dot sight with adjustable front sight for windage
  • Comes with three sizes of interchangeable grip backstraps

Cons:

  • FPS may be low for some people that like the more powerful CO2 pistols
  • Shoots a bit low out of the box
  • Ugly white warning instruction on the slide

Comments: Many of us have been waiting for a blowback Smith & Wesson M&P and now we have one. Thanks to Umarex, we also get it in a fully licensed version to make it even more realistic! Everything about the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is so very accurate to the real steel version, other than the fact that it shoots 4.5mm Steel BBs using CO2, but isn't that why we are interested in it in the first place? If you are a real steel S&W M&P owner than you are going to have to get yourself one of these as a low cost and easily accessible training alternative. Whatever your purpose it, this is a great choice for anyone looking for an ultra realistic 4.5mm CO2 blowback pistol.

Unbelievable replica

I own both a Smith and Wesson SDV9 and a M&P 9. I purchased this gun for practice, it is the exact feel, weight and size as the real thing.If it wasn't for the white print on the replica, you would have to look at the muzzle to realize which is which!So much fun to shoot!

This YouTube Video Preview covers three really nice CO2 Pistols recently added to our Replica Airguns Canada Store. One is a pellet pistol from Gletcher called the Gletcher NGT R which is for the most part the same as the standard 4.5mm Steel shooting NGT but the R model is made to shoot .177 caliber pellets so it also has a rifled barrel. I am expecting pretty decent accuracy with this pistol!

Next up we have another Gletcher Pistol that is actually made by KWC, I have already done a table top review of the KWC version of this same Makarov PM pistol. Gletcher simply has placed their own branding on the KWC version and call it the Gletcher PM 1951 but it is the exact same gun as the Makarov PM but with different markings on the gun.

Last but perhaps the best or at least most anticipated gun I am showing off today is the Umarex S&W M&P40 Full Blowback CO2 BB Pistol. This is a really nice acurate replica of the real steal S&W M&P40 with full licensing and pretty much every part operational like it would be on the .40 caliber version.

I have already done a Preview Video where I show you around the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol so check that video out for a closer look.

In this Field Test Shooting video I take out my Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol and put five shots through my Chronograph to see what the real word velocity performance will be, I also test the accuracy of the Smith & Wesson M&P40 by placing ten shots down range at a paper target setup 30 feet back using a semi rested shooting position(Pistol rested on a sandbag while standing in the back). I also include some slow motion video of the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Pistol blowback action close up for you to see how it cycles.

For my Feet Per Second portion testing I inserted a brand new CO2 cartridge along with 5.1 grain RWS nickel coated 4.5mm Steel BB's. The temperature outside was 15 degrees Celsius (59 Fahrenheit), so not overly warm or cold, On a warmer day I would expect a little higher fps for sure. Umarex claims a velocity of 310 fps from this pistol, As my Chronograph was misbehaving a little I was only able to get a three shot to record but was able to get a fairly realistic average of 299 which was pretty close to the claimed fps for the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol.

Moving on to the Target Accuracy portion of my Field Test, all 10 shots landed within a 2 inch grouping, not bad for a full blowback BB pistol. I did notice the shots where a little low so some sight placement adjustments would be required depending on your shooting range since the sights on the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol are non-adjustable for elevation, they are however adjustable for windage using the front sight to make adjustments. The blowback action is nice and heavy and the single action only trigger release is fairly light and kind of sneaks up on you a bit til you get used to it. You should be able to get around 4 magazines out of the Umarex Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol as long as you take some time in-between loading up your magazines to let both the magazine and gun warm up a bit from the cold CO2.

I have been waiting a while for this version of the Full Blowback Smith & Wesson M&P40 CO2 BB Pistol, and I am happy to say I am not disappointed in the least, it's a really great replica from Umarex and a must have BB pistol in my books!

It has been a while since I picked out some of my favorite guns, after all my favorite gun picks change on a daily basis since there are so many awesome guns out there to pick from.

This YouTube video is a little different since I pick out my favorites from a bunch of mostly replica gun categories including Steel BB, Pellet, Airsoft, Revolvers and Blank Pistols.

You may notice most of my picks happen to be blowback guns but to me airguns are all about being as realistic as possible and having blowback operation to me help to simulate the realism that much more. The exception in this video is in the pellet gun category since I decided on a pellet gun that was more about function and purpose over being any type of real replica.

Hopefully you take the time to watch my entire YouTube video since I also bring out some close runner ups but here is a list of my top picks on this day, tomorrow it could be a completely different list of guns ;)
