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.

Wicked fun and excellent pricing!

I personally never had any interest in any airsoft guns until I came across this website, your youtube videos, and especially this gun! I think this is one of the best starter guns to begin a collection, I've found it to be pretty accurate, have acceptable c02 consumption and believe it has great realism to it (which I love) you definitely get the bang for your buck spent. The overall fun you can have with it is endless and makes it all worth it! I would definitely recommend people to this as a starter pistol if you've never really handled an airsoft gun or any type of gun at all.

Not as good as I remember

Shoots low, really low. I only got 2 magazines out of 1 Co2 canister. When I filled it up all the way it jammed. Easy to take apart but very stressful to put back together. The plastic Co2 valve I guess that's what it is keeps getting stuck in the barrel. I hope the Glock 17 gen 4 is better than this. It is a very nice replica parts and visual wise, but the performance is lackluster.
