Trigger Pull: Pretty much a single action only trigger since you will need to work the lever action to not only eject and chamber a shell, but to also precock the hammer. Once the hammer is cocked and ready, the trigger pull is short, light and crisp, perfect for accurate shooting.

Accuracy: I only shot 16 rounds during the making of my review and found the Umarex Legends Cowboy to shoot right on target at 30 feet out. I did notice it shot just slightly high at this range, but not a lot. It was dead center windage-wise. For longer ranges, you can adjust the rear sight to raise the barrel even more. In terms of power, it’s hard to say what I was getting, Umarex says it should hit around 410 FPS. I felt like it was close to this, maybe a tad bit faster, but I will find out for sure when I perform my Field Test Shooting Video shortly.

Build Quality: The rifle looks and feels great, coming in at nearly 6 pounds and built out of mostly metal with a plastic stock. Don’t be too put out by the plastic stock, it does mimic the part of wood very well. All the metal parts have a semi-gloss or a matte black finish, and so far the paint is wearing pretty well. No noticeable paint coming off that I can see. The action works great with no failure to chamber, eject, or shoot rounds.

Realism: The Umarex Legends Cowboy BB Rifle is an awesome example of the classic lever action cowboy rifle. Having the ejecting shells makes it feel like you are shooting the real deal right from the time you start loading up the 10 shells into the pipe magazine, until you work that lever action and pull the trigger. Watching the ejected shells fly through the air is the icing on the cake. :) There is not much more you can ask for from a BB-firing replica lever action cowboy rifle!

Pros:

  • Lever action rifle stays true to real steel firearm
  • Full metal frame and faux-wood polymer stock looks very much like real wood
  • Compatible with Umarex Peacemaker BB cartridges
  • Realistic shell loading and ejection
  • Dual CO2 helps get more shots before reloading CO2 and more consistent FPS from all shots
  • Rear sight can be adjusted for windage and elevation

Cons:

  • Stock is not real wood, hopefully Umarex offers a wood upgrade at some time
  • Took too long for us to get it here in Canada!

Comments: Take yourself back to the days of the Wild West with the Legends Cowboy BB Rifle from Umarex. The Legends Cowboy is a perfect example of an airgun company listening to their customers and bringing to market exactly what we are looking for. Modelled after the Winchester 1894, this CO2-powered rifle uses lever-action design to fire off 10 rounds of steel BBs downrange. These old cowboy guns are a blast to shoot form the time you pick up rifle, insert 10 shells into the magazine, work the lever action, pull that trigger, and then repeat 9 more times. Its full metal frame and imitation wood stock and handguard gives the rifle its realistic look to satisfy your inner cowboy. This is a must have for anyone looking for a super realistic BB rifle. Even if you’re not an Old West cowboy fan, I think you will love shooting the Umarex Legends Cowboy CO2 BB Rifle!

A very accurate shooting and realistic looking rifle

This is a model of the 1894 Winchester rifle. It shoots .177 steel bbs. Two gas cartridges are used to power the rifle. I found that this was very accurate and powerful. I was able to hit my target every time. The speed was much more than 400 fps. I was able to get 90 good shots with the two gas cartridges. After 90 shots the power and distance was less and less with each succeeding shot. It easily cut through aluminum pop cans. The stock is not wood but it still looks very realistic. I very much enjoyed shooting this rifle as I had always wanted to have a rifle like this ever since I was a little boy watching tv shows of the old west cowboys.

What to Add

Indeed, everything you hear about this historic carbine replica is true. So what can I add to the mix. Shot one of these that my Dad owned when I was a kid. We had a double barrel shotgun and my Grandfather's WW1 Webley and a few less notable pieces but I remember what a pleasure the Winchester 1894 was by comparison. One of the most manageable and comfortable rifles of all time. This brings back those memories. The action is perfect, like the Colt SAA is for a wheel gun. It is very accurate albeit a little quiet. The design and fit and finish are excellent and here's what I can add. The wood printed plastic even feels like wood. Amazing.

Umarex Cowboy rifle.

In the past I have owned a 30-30 and a 38-55. Out of the box this rifle emulates the original completely. That is where it stops. On closer examination this model has a number of complete redesign characteristics that change the function entirely. I'm a perfectionist. I packed these rifles in the bush in the course of my employment over 40 years ago! Not to say I don't like it but..... It has a unusual spring loaded bolt that is completely new. I used to pack a cartridges in my pocket and didn't load the magazine tube on the original for safety reasons. I would open the bolt and top load the cartridges as needed. The first thing I did with the Umarex model was to load from the breech. This proved impossible due to the bolt. It can only be fed from the tube magazine. All aside I put 100+rounds through this rifle on its debut. It performed well however it has some issues. The ejection of cartridges is violent and can cause damage which in turn may cause problems with your Umarex Colts which share the same ammunition. I recommend putting out a blanket to soften the landing of cases. (They are supposed to be reusable.) I tried it with both BB's and pellets using the prescribed Umarex cartridges. This rifle is deadly with both! I found the rifle to be very dry and sticky but after a good course of lube it took on a new life. As always inspect the co2 plug for manufacturing debris. As for the bolt arrangement only time will tell. I'd buy another in a minute! A great example of 19th. century technology meeting the 21st.

A Great Lever Action Airgun

This is a really great airgun. Every collection should contain a lever action rifle. While a wood stock would have been nice, you save some money and the imitation wood is very well done and quite sturdy. IT does not have the hollow, plastic feel that other plastic stocks tend to have. The shells do require some force to load and depending on how you do it you can scrape up your finger but it's not so difficult that it's a deterrent. The eject nicely and the CO2 cartridge lasts for a good number of rounds. The sling mount on the side is a bit strange but it's a minor annoyance.

Beautiful Looking/Shooting Replica!

I bought this gun from Replica Airguns early this year (2021). I'm extremely impressed with everything about this gun! Realism is second to none and the shell loading/ejecting puts this gun in a category all by itself. This gun has a great weight , good sights, and is extremely accurate at 40' to 50'. The price point is also attractive for the quality you get. Replica Airgun's website was easy to navigate and they had a speedy delivery time. This Umarex Winchester is a "MUST" have for all airgun hobbyists. Well done Umarex! Cheers Lee

Out of the box accuracy

The rifle was almost a duplicate of my Henry 22 lever action I love do much. The Legends Convoy is just the thing I wanted to train my grandson with. However the one I received was off...shot too high and to the right. Ryan at Replica Airguns was very helpful. He helped me return it for a replacement. I really appreciated the help as I was not sure what to expect in the way of service. I returned it on Feb 2nd this year and look forward to receiving the new one so I can start shooting with my grandson.

Umarex Legends Cow Boy

Finally got this rifle after months of waiting. Absolutely love if. Fabulous feel and action. Takes colt S/A shells with no issues. Bought spare shells for it. If you fire too rapidly eventually the BB's will drop due to cooling. However very accurate at 30 plus feet.

This Review for the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is a bit different than most I do since usually I perform a dedicated Table Top and Field Test Reviews for each gun I review here on the Replica Airguns Website. I feel that since the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is such a “long gun” that showing it on the table would not work so well , plus it was a super nice day and I wanted to get outside and maybe even shoot a little bit.

I will be performing my usual Field Test Shooting video where I test the Feet Per Second and accuracy at 30 feet so stay posted for that. For now I will leave you with this outdoor “Show and Tell” review.

Type: CO2 BB Rifle.
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Umarex Legends Cowboy
Materials: Mainly metal with plastic stock.
Weight: 5.95 pounds (2699 grams).
Length: 38 inches total length
Barrel: 19.25 inch Metal non-rifled smooth bore.
Propulsion: Dual 12 gram CO2.
Action: Lever Action.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm Steel BB's.

The Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle is a perfect example of an Airgun company listening to their customers and bringing to market exactly what we are looking for, kind of like the Single Action Army Revolvers that came out a while back. These old cowboy guns are a blast to shoot from the time you pick up the rifle, insert 10 shells into the magazine, work the lever action, pull that trigger and then repeat 10 times. This is a must have for anyone looking for a super realistic BB rifle, even if you’re not an old west cowboy fan I think you will love shooting the Umarex Legends Cowboy Shell Ejecting CO2 BB Rifle!

I have not officially done a Field Test Shooting Video for the Umarex Legends CO2 BB Lever Action Cowboy Rifle other than my quick outside shooting test where I simply shot a bunch of rounds at some pop cans just to see how the Umarex Legends CO2 BB Lever Action Cowboy Rifle would work for me and it did perform well during that test.

Jumping ahead to a little while later when I went to make my Official Field Test Shooting Video for the Umarex Legends CO2 BB Lever Action Cowboy Rifle. I found it was not performing well at all, shooting well under the 410 claimed fps closer to 200 fps which was a surprise since it seemed to do a lot better for me on my previous test. I even changed out the CO2 but still did not get any better results. I racked this up to maybe being a defective gun and so I went about getting my hands on another Umarex Legends CO2 BB Lever Action Cowboy Rifle.

Usually I state all there results for My Field Test Shooting Videos here in the written article but I kind of feel it is best if you just watch this one from start to finishes since the video result s did turn out to really surprise me in the end...
