Note: The following description pertains to the KWC non-licenced version of the Legends P-08.

Trigger Pull: The Single Action Only trigger pull on the KWC P-08 Luger CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is really nice, it has a super short take-up with a very smooth light release. There really is no reset since the entire action is so short so quick follow shots are fast and predictable. Of course since this is a single action only trigger with no external hammer, you will need to pull the toggle back to chamber a BB and pre-cock the hammer for the first shot, the Blowback action will do this automatically for you on follow-up shots until the magazine is empty and the toggle locks back.

Accuracy: I did find the KWC P-08 Luger shot a bit high for me (about 3 inches at 30 feet out) and since the sights are nonadjustable, I would have to hold low on the target to make up for this but the KWC P-08 did shot well centered horizontally. Over all the 10 shot grouping at 30 feet out was very good with the bulk of the shots staying within a 1 inch pattern and three shot coming outside stretching it out to about 2.5 inches.

Build Quality: The KWC P-08 Luger CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is well built being that it is pretty much entirely metal. It weighs in at a beefy 1.84 pounds which is very close to the 1.92 pounds of the genuine real steel Luger. The only plastic to speak of would be in the grips and also the gas tube. As is with pretty much all KWC guns, they are powder coated so the finish looks great but can wear off in areas that protrude and or see metal on metal friction.

Realism: The KWC P-08 Luger is a really accurate replica of the actual Luger P-08 with as far as I can tell all the same working parts and ability to field strip like the real steel version. I did find the finish to be perhaps a bit dark, I would have liked to have seen a more grey or bluish tint to it to get the KWC Luger P-08 more in line with the blued finish found on the real version.

Pros:  

  • Nice heavy blowback toggle that locks back on last shot
  • Lots of metal and good overall weight, similar to real steel version
  • Decent fps and accuracy.
  • Very good replicas of a real Luger P-08 with all working parts
  • Really nice short and light single action trigger
  • Field Strippable
  • Comes in 4.5mm Steel BB and 6mm Plastic Airsoft versions

Cons: 

  • Paint wears off in high spots noticeably, seems to be typical with all KWC guns
  • Non-adjustable sights that seemed to shoot a bit high
  • Black paint may be a bit too dark, more grey or blue tone would have made it more realistic

Comments: Another great classic ultra-realistic pistol from KWC! It's really nice to see more and more of these classic pistols showing up and from multiple manufacturers. I liked the Umarex version which was all metal and a good overall Luger replica, KWC took it to the next level by adding blowback and a full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and BB's and by giving us the option of buying the KWC Luger P-08 in either 4.5mm Steel BB or 6mm Plastic Airsoft versions. If you're a Luger fan looking for ultra-realism, this is the one to go with!

Another great air replica by Umarex

Feels nice in your hands with the steel construction. One CO2 will last for 3 magazines with the blowback action. Accuracy, it's a 300 ft/sec smooth bore BB air pistol, don't have too high expectations or buy the Umarex fixed barrel Glock BB air pistol. Fun factor is 5 stars.

Umarex Luger PO8 is one my top three pistols!

This is an exceptional replica of the Luger PO8. Very solidly constructed. The toggle action functions flawlessly so far and it is of course so unique, unlike an other pistol. Holds well in the hand and shoots accurately. My only negative comment is it is a CO2 hog. Can get two magazines for sure, but I have yet to make it through three full mags. That said, this pistol is so well constructed it is difficult to fault it. As a world war replica, it is almost impossible to top it.

Very Realistic replica

I agree with much of what has already been said. What I can add, being the lucky owner of a real Luger is that this is an excellent replica. It strips and feels very like the real thing. The grip of the Umarex is ever so slightly thicker, presumably to accommodate the CO2 cartridge. And yes it could look a bit more real in terms of being blued rather than matt black and the grips could look a bit like dirty wood instead of black plastic. But if you want the feel of the real thing in your hand I heartily recommend this replica.
