Trigger Pull: Pretty typical of what you would find on an AR styled rifle. Since the internal bolt cycles with each shot, the trigger is engaged and the paintball rifle is ready for the next shot with a very light and short single action trigger pull.
Accuracy: I shot a short string of rubber rounds through my chronograph and got a 280 FPS average with the Umarex T4E HK 416. This is plenty power for the intended target down range to feel the paintball effect without causing too much trauma. I then set up a paper target 30 feet down range and using a rested and seated shooting position and carefully unloaded the paintball rifle. I was surprised to see the rounds spread out a fair amount, perhaps as much as 10-12 inches but at least half were in the target rings.
Build Quality: Very good since this paintball gun is made for military and law enforcement training use. You’re going to find high quality metal and polymer where you would normally find them on the real steel version. The bolt carrier is expected to last at least 3000 shots but you do get an extra one included with it.
Realism: The fully licensed Umarex T4E HK 416 Training Marker Paintball Rifle is about as realistic as you are going to get in a paintball rifle. It’s basically made very similar to a GBB Airsoft Rifle of the same type with a working bolt and pretty much all working parts on it. You can even break the Umarex T4E T4E HK 416 Training Marker CO2 Paintball Rifle down into the lower and upper receiver halves. The bolt blowback action is not super strong but this may be a good thing since CO2 usage will be more efficient allowing for higher fps and more shots per CO2.
Comments: The T4E (Training for Engagement) HK 416 is so realistic, its used as a training weapon by law enforcement and the military! This .43 caliber air gun is a 1:1 scale replica of the Heckler & Koch HK416, with a full metal frame and bright blue polymer grip, telescopic stock, and drop out magazine. It fires .43 marking rounds at speeds approaching 460 FPS, accurate up to a range of 30ft. The CO2 system puts remarkably little stress on the gun’s internals. Although the bolt group will start to wear out after 3000 rounds, Umarex includes a free spare bolt group to swap in.
