Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol

Description

Type: Airsoft Pistol
Manufacturer: Umarex
Model: Walther P99 DAO
Materials: Metal & Polymer
Weight: 1.5 pounds
Barrel: 4 inches, metal non-rifled
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2
Action: Semi auto, double action only with blowback
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's
Ammunition Capacity: 15 round stick magazine
FPS: 380

Trigger Pull: The Double Action Only trigger pull on the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is long but not overly heavy for a double action trigger, it does have a break point mid-way where it locks partway back, I presume this is the point in which a BB is loaded from the magazine into the barrel? The rest of the pull is still medium but much shorter with a distinct release point.

Accuracy: I did do a quick preliminary test before I made this table top review to get an idea of where this gun performs in terms of FPS and accuracy, I shot 5 rounds through my Chronograph on a fresh CO2 and got an average of 333FPS which was a bit lower than the claimed 380 but it was not the hottest of days. I also stepped back 20 feet and from a semi rested position I was able to get 9 shots within 2 inches of each other which was not bad for a DAO gun that I have never shot before. I did shoot a bit down and to the left with the set sights.

Build Quality: The Umarex Walther P99 is well built for its rather low price tag, it may not have all the bells and whistles but it does get the job done with good fit and finish and materials used. You will find a plastic/polymer frame but there is a lot of metal where it would normally be found on the real steel version like in the slide, magazine, trigger, slide catch, magazine release, inner barrel and many other internal parts. No real complaints here!

Realism: The Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is pretty close in looks to a real steel Walther P99 with the exception of a missing de-cocker, but I'm pretty sure this is the same with the real steel DAO version? There is also the funny looking safety on the right side of the frame found on many Umarex airguns. I have to mention the red tip but again this can be removed and even when removed the barrel it is still recessed which adds to the realism. The Blowback action, Walther licensing and nice heavy weight all add up to make this Airsoft pistol look and feel the part.

Pros:

  • Low cost for a very believable and solid replica.
  • All metal stick magazine.
  • Metal slide and internal parts gives it decent weight.
  • Rail for accessories.
  • Well hidden CO2 screw.
  • Walther licensing.
  • Recessed inner barrel.
  • White dot sights, easy to use.
  • Right amount of power for indoor CQB style airsoft games.

Cons:

  • Comes with a red tip even in Canada.
  • Double action only, so trigger is a bit heavier.
  • Kind of funny safety, not like the real gun.
  • Blowback was a bit sluggish.

Comments: Overall the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a very good buy, it's a decent replica of the real steel Walther P99 with blowback operation, lots of metal parts, good fit and finish, decent performance and full Walther licensing and trademarks. All at a very affordable price tag. It may lack some of the extras you will find on more expensive and more functional Airsoft pistols but the simplicity of the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol means it will most likely be a bit more reliable with less to go wrong down the road. If you have been looking for a nice Walther styled replica in an Airsoft version this may be just be the ticket!

I'm getting almost 10 mags per 12g co2 which is pretty amazing for a blowback. Feels great and has a nice weight to it. Nothing about it feels cheap except the price tag.

Amazing. Especially for the price

I ordered this because I wanted a budget pistol to start out with. When I ordered it my friend bought a much more expensive pistol and I started doubting the quality of my far less expensive. Let's just say I was wrong. The gun feels heavy enough to not feel like a cheap toy. The blowback feels strong and makes the gun feel that much more powerful. Also it is fairly accurate and if you get used to it you can hit pretty much every shot. Came in great condition. If you're looking for a good budget pistol look no further than this one! It's honestly some of the best money I've spent.

Great intro to proper Airsoft

This is a decent pistol for the money. The best part about this pistol is the availability of low cost magazines. It seems efficient on Co2--can easily go through about 6-7 magazines before noticing much of a drop in power. The one complaint is about replacing the Co2. Perhaps it's only on mine, but the cylinder doesn't loosen enough to be tapped out or fall out of the grip. It needs a prying technique. I attach tape tails to my cylinders before inserting them in the pistol so i can pull them out. All in all, very happy with it and recommend it.

The Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a fairly low cost Airsoft BB pistol but even so, there is no reason why we should expect less than stellar performance from it.

I have already done a pretest for the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol while making my Table Top Review and it shot right around the 333 fps mark, but it was a colder day then. I also shot my Umarex Walther P99 DAO from a much closer 20 foot distance for the pretest and got a respectable 2 inch grouping.

On the actual Field Test Shooting day it was much warmer (tank top weather ;) and so as would be expected, this time my Umarex Walther Airsoft P99 shot a bit quicker at right around a 356 fps average, shooting 10 rounds through my Chronograph. I would expect to get even more fps on an even hotter day as it was only about 22 degrees Celsius or about 72 Fahrenheit on this test day.

Accuracy from 30 feet out was pretty close to my pretest 20 foot testing if you exclude the two flyers but again the Umarex Airsoft P99 version was shooting a bit to the left which unfortunately can not be adjusted other than changing my sight position on the target. I would think the trend to the left will only increase as we shoot further out but this gun is really best suited for close quarters shooting anyways and should have no problems right up to 50 feet shooting a man sized target..

You can expect to get around 100 shots or a good 6 full 15 shot magazines from Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol which should get you nicely through a CQB match without having to change CO2 cartridges. For being a rather low cost Airsoft gun, it did perform well enough for me on this day, keep in mind it does have a firm long pull double action only trigger so really fast shooting will take it's toll on your trigger finger ;)

This video covers both my Table Top and Field Test reviews for the Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol. I show you around this gun up close highlight all the parts and operation of the Umarex Walther P99, I also shoot 5 rounds through my Chronograph and another 9 rounds from 20 feet out at a target using .20 gram Airsoft BB's to see how well the Walther P99 performs.
