Type: BB Pistol Manufacturer: Umarex Model: 9XP Materials: Metal with ABS plastic grips Weight: 1.1 kg (2.4 lbs) Barrel: 152.4 mm (6 in), metal, non-rifled, smoothbore Propulsion: 12 g CO2 x 1 Action: Semi-auto blowblack, double-action only Ammunition Type: 4.5 mm steel BBs Ammunition Capacity: 20 rounds FPS: 400
Trigger Pull: On the medium to heavy side. The trigger pull on this gun is a little bit longer and tougher on the 9XP compared to the discontinued Umarex SA177. The gun shoots a little harder though so the internal spring might be slightly heavier.
Accuracy: I shot the Umarex 9XP at a target from 30 feet away in a semi-rested position and it performed quite well! I had a nice 5-6 shot group dead center on the target well under a 1 inch diameter and then 4 shots came outside extending the grouping to about 2 inches, again another well centered grouping!
Build Quality: It has good weight and craftsmanship. The 9XP shares a lot of the same internal parts as the Umarex SA177 with some minor cosmetic changes to make it look less like a Glock.
Realism: The 9XP is essentially a reskin of the SA177, modeled after the popular Glock carry pistol widely used by governmental agencies. It uses blowback action to simulate a real firearm and the metal slide and integrated accessory rail add to the overall realism of this gun.
Great accuracy and power combination
Loud, snappy blowback action for realistic shooting
Integrated Picatinny rail on the underside to mount accessories like flashlights
Full metal slide ensures reliability
Working safety near trigger
Convenient CO2 hatch in the back of the handle
Nice fiber optic sights
All metal drop-out magazine
Blowback action uses more CO2
Long and heavy trigger pull may be tiring for extended shooting sessions
Comments: The Umarex 9XP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol is a nice replacement for the SA177. The trigger on the 9XP is a bit heavier but not by much. During the field test shooting, the 9XP shot at a speed much higher, coming in at an average of 412 fps for my 5 shot string. So if you have been wanting an SA177 but cannot find one used, grab yourself one of the Umarex 9XPs, you will not be disappointed.
Than you gotta buy this one. blowback pistol that shoot hard, good looking, and excellent value. If they fix that rattling sound under the barrel (you will see that loose piece that the pin go thru under the barrel once you remove the slide), make the trigger lighter, and use a better spring for the slide... this would be a perfect gun.

very nice for the price / qualité prix exeptionnel
it be difficult to find best quality price then this pistol. the construction is great perhaps the slide appear a little slack but the metal of this one are great and the weight is nice. the blowback effect are very snappy and the slide locking after the last shoot is very realist.the accuracy at approx 15' are in a great average but not exeptionnal. so for the price is so good. co2 consumption are great for a blowback pistol, above 100 shoots.i realy like this gun !il serait difficile de trouver meilleur qualité prix. la contruction est bonne. meme s il est solide la cullasse semble un peu lousse mais le metal de celui ci lui donne un effet et un poids tres agreable.l'effet blowback est tres reussi et donne un tres bon "kick" et avec le fait, que la culasse reste barré en arriere apres le dernier coup, cela donne beaucoup de realisme.la precision du tir a 15' est dans une bonne moyenne sans etre exeptionnel. mais pour le prix elle est tres bonne.le consomation de co2 d environ 100 tir ou un peu plus est bonne pour un arme avec blowback.j aime vraiment ce fusil !

Will I buy it again, YES
Very good quality, the plastic of the body is not chinese, the slide metal is great, look a lot like a G..... accurate even for a DA that is not so hard, 100 shot's or so per CO2. Only draw back is the slide/blowback that is decorative, that's why the spring is so weak. I do recommend it specialy at that price, you can't go wrong.

This airgun is great! My first impression of this gun was definetley on a good side. I'll describe this gun and paint a picture as to how it actually is for you sceptics out there debating whether or not to pick this pistol up. First off the price is very good for the performance of this gun, it is very accurate, provides many shots per c02 bulb and has a very snappy blowback thats not too fair from the tw 1911 but still noticeably weaker. The gun has a medium heavy feel too it, but not as heavy as full steel guns. This is due to the polymer frame which is everything but the slide. The gun also feels off balance because the slide is metal and heftier and the body is a lighter high quality plastic which may cause it to feel kinda of awkward in the beginning but isn't a big deal at all. The molding of the handle is very comfortable to hold and provides a comfortable grip. The C02 hatch will be loose and will open very easily. If you don't experience this the first day then you definetly will the next. However, this can be fixed by placing a small strip of tape to increase girth to the area that latches on to the handle. This worked wonders for me and the latch is well secured on mine. Like i said, the gun shoots fast, has great blowback (when shooting) and is efficient on co2. My biggest complaint is that you will be disappointed the first time you rack the slide. IT'S SO LIGHT. Releasing the slide via the slide release is so sad, if you were to point the gun at the ceiling and rack the slide, it wont fully rack because the spring is insanely weak. If you can look passed this horrible slide (which i did), you'll love this gun. It shoots great, sounds great, feels great(when shooting) and is good for the price. Its not a must buy, but if you're a fan of glocks then pick this up! i recommend this if you're looking for a budget blowback plinker.Bryan M. from Mississauga Ontario
I wanted to not only do my Field Test Shooting review for the Umarex 9XP Blowback CO2 BB Pistol but also compare it to the discontinued Umarex SA177 since both guns share most of their internal parts. I had a good idea that both airguns would perform very similarly with perhaps the newer 9XP having the edge due to it being almost 5 years newer.
A with all my current BB Pistol Field Test Shooting Reviews, I test out the real world Feet Per Second performance by shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph to see what they average out at, of course I use a brand new CO2 for this and my choice of BB was RWS Zinc coated 5.1 grain Steel BB's.
I started out testing the Umarex SA177 to use as my baseline and after about 5 warmup shots, the SA177 came back to life after sitting on the shelf for many years un-shot. My 5 shot string averaged a respectable 397 fps which is pretty good for a blowback pistol!
I then moved on to the newer Umarex 9XP CO2 Blowback Pistol and right away it popped out all 5 shots at over 400 fps with an average of 412 for my 5 shot string. Not only was the Umarex 9XP more powerful but it also had a snappier blowback action and was louder than the SA177 leading me to believe the CO2 valve may be setup to let out a bit more CO2 with each shot.
