Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex M712 BB Gun is what you would expect from a full blowback, true single-action only pistol. It has a little bit of take-up and a fairly light, smooth release. When in full-auto mode, just press and hold the trigger until the ammo is gone, but don't hold the trigger too long. When the BBs run out, the gun will keep firing as the bolt does not lock back when empty.
Build Quality: The Umarex M712 is well built since it is almost entirely metal. It weighs in at a whopping 3.11 pounds so be prepared for a heavier gun. You can choose to hold it two-handed by using the forward magazine like a foregrip. Fit and finish seems very good. I really liked the dark grey finish and very believable plastic wood grain grips.
Realism: The Umarex M712 BB Gun is a spot on replica of the M1932/M712 Schnellfeuer with all the same working parts, including the semi and full-auto selector switch. The Umarex M712 also has a full working bolt, hammer, safety, adjustable rear sight, and a full size drop out metal magazine that holds the CO2 and BBs.
Comments: The Umarex M712 BB Gun is the all metal version we hoped Umarex had first made when they came out with their first iteration, so this should make everyone pretty happy. I really liked the super high FPS and ultra-fast rate of fire in full-auto mode. It's a great replica with awesome blowback action and a super-fast trigger. Another must-have classic war pistol to add to the collection!
