Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Submachine Gun

Type: BB Gun
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Legends MP 40
Material: Mostly metal
Weight: 3.5 kg (7.7 pounds)
Barrel: 25.4 mm (10 inches), smoothbore
Power Source: 2 x 12 g CO2
Action: Semi/full-automatic
Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 60 rounds
FPS: 465

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Legends MP CO2 BB Submachine Gun is single action only and even though I have seen it tested at around 10 pounds pull, in person it does not feel that heavy and is actually fairly smooth. You will need to charge the bolt for the first shot just like you would on the real steel MP 40.

Accuracy: Like others have reported, you really need to take your time loading the double stack magazine properly or you can have some feeding issues. I added a little bit of dry lubricant to the magazine feeding track. When I performed the accuracy test from my standard 30 foot position I got a very tight 1 inch group shooting in semi auto. A bit high and to the left, but very close to the center bullseye. When I opened up and went full auto the group did largen. The gun rocks back and forth a little with its internal bolt blowback operation, but the remaining 40 rounds mostly stayed within a 2-3 inch grouping.

Build Quality: The gun is pretty much all metal, other than the stock and pistol grip. Pretty much everything that is black is going to be metal on this airgun. It weighs in at a hefty 7.7 pounds which is only a punt off from the real steel version. Overall the fit and finish is really good, all mechanical parts including the retractible stock work flawlessly.

Realism: The Umarex Legends MP is a 1 to 1 replica of the real steel German-made World War II MP 40 machine gun. It is very authentic looking and has very similar operation. The BB version does have the ability to shoot in semi-auto mode — which the real steel version did not — but this is a good feature for saving on CO2 and BBs. It would have been nice if the bolt could lock all the way back and up, but since the movement is shortened this is not possible. Stil, the Umarex Legends MP CO2 BB Submachine Gun is a really nice replica in almost every way.

Pros:

  • Mostly all-metal design with good overall weight
  • Semi and full-auto selectability
  • Dual CO2 design for increased shots and less cool down effect
  • High capacity full size drop out metal magazine
  • Great looking replica of the real steel MP 40 in looks, operation and weight
  • Internal bolt blowback will give a little recoil feedback
  • Adjustable rear sight for shooting at different ranges
  • Price point is reasonable for this type of full size, mostly metal rifle

Cons:

  • Sights are not adjustable for windage
  • Bolt does not go all the way back to the lockout position
  • Some reviewers have noted that a full mag load does not always work well in full auto mode

Comments: When I first got my hand on the Umarex Legends MP CO2 Submachine Gun at this years' SHOT Show, I immediately knew it was going to be a hit. The Umarex Legends MP has a lot going for it... High FPS, semi and full auto, nostalgia of being a war replica, and super great build quality, fit and finish. The question is really who wouldn't want one? Especially being a replica BB rifle, which has to be one of the more limited areas when it comes to airgun replicas. I look forward to shooting this offering from Umarex a little more and sharing my experiences with everyone.

MP 40

Just got this beauty about 2 weeks ago. Was going to splurge for the weathered version, but wasn't sure how it would look, and you can get exact slings online for about $30. I got same test results - shoots good, a bit to the left. Would like to know where a good BB target can be bought - one that catches them.

Great looking...great sounding Junk

The blow-back and looks are amazing. The feed system is so faulty that one in 5 BBs actually get propelled out...usually with a couple more falling out of the barrel. There is no notch to anchor the feeding spring so you have to physically hold it back while you are loading it up. The MP40 seems to be of mostly metal construction and has a definite heft to it. It would almost be worth it for the looks, the feel and blow-back action. But, with all show and no go, it gets only 1 star.

Legends MP

Just got this gun today. Pretty amazing. It is heavy and feels like a real gun. Quality of fit and finish is great. Magazine is a bit of a pain to load but as long as you get the bb's staggered with no gaps it seems to shoot well. I've put 5 magazines with 40 shots through and it hasn't jammed once. I would say be careful after about 120 shots, at some point the CO2 won't be able to move the bb and you might get one stuck in the barrel. Get lots of CO2 and BB's if you are going to shoot on full auto it burns through pretty fast. Accuracy is great. Mine just shoots an inch to the left at 10m but the groups are good. Too bad extra magazine is so expensive otherwise would get another one. All in all great value. Mega fun to shoot.

It feels like I have been waiting forever to get my hands on the Umarex Legends MP 40 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm Steel BB Full Auto Machine Gun. I first saw the Legends MP 40 at SHOT Show this year in Las Vegas and immediately loved it, it was my top pick for the show and I predicted it would be a super hot item in terms of sales.

What's not to love about the Umarex Legends MP 40 CO2 Blowback 4.5mm Steel BB Full Auto Machine Gun? It's pretty much all metal weighing in at close to 8 pounds, The Legends MP has a max fps of up to 465, shoots in both semi and full auto and has a high capacity all metal 52 round magazine that holds not only 1 CO2 but 2 CO2 for close to 200 rounds of semi auto shooting or about 140 shots in full auto. I really look forward to my Field Test Shooting Review of the Umarex Legends MP 40!

Not to be out shadowed or forgotten in the preview video, I also show off another 2017 SHOT Show CO2 Blowback Air Pistol, the Umarex Beretta APX! Right away the Umarex Beretta APX feels nice and solid in the hand weighing in at around 1.5 pounds with a heavy metal slide and really high quality plastic or polymer frame. You will find some nice details like a cut out ejection port and recessed barrel and of course full Beretta licensing from Umarex. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback BB Pistol has a pretty decent claimed fps of close to 400 and a 20 round stick magazine that when inserted has that full size magazine look to it.

You'll also find other nice details like white dot sights front and back and a working slide catch release. My only gripe with the Beretta APX is the trigger, it does not ahed the trigger safety you would find on the real steel Beretta APX and the action is very long and perhaps a bit heavy. Other than that the Umarex Beretta APX looks to be a really nice replica airgun.

The one everybody has been waiting for, my Field Test Shooting Review Video for the Umarex Legends MP 40 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun!

I was originally planning on working out some of the magazine feeding issues with the Umarex Legends MP 40 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun as other reviewers had mentioned that the steel 4.5mm BB's can jam up a bit in the magazine. The only thing I did with my Umarex Legends MP 40 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun was to add a little bit of dry Jig-A-Loo lubricant to the magazine feeding track and make sure all my BB's where properly double stacked.. Other than that my Umarex Legends MP 40 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun is stock with no magazine spring mods.

-----

The Umarex Legends MP 40 Blowback CO2 BB Machine Gun is a really sweet air riffle with a legendary look, blowback operation, semi and full auto capability, decent fps, great accuracy and at the end of the day is simply a ton of fun to shoot!
