Customer Reviews for Umarex Walther P99 CO2 Blowback Airsoft gun

Brand: Umarex Canada

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

Buy the magazine: UMX2262024

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!

You get what you pay for

Whist doing your research on airsoft guns, you may notice that this pistol seems to be considerably less in cost than other airsoft blow back guns. Yes, it's a great looking item and seems like a quality build, but after about 10 - CO2 cartridges, the pistol developed an air leak. I only had this airgun for about 6 months, it was rarely used, but maintained as directed. I will add, it was a fun pistol. Yet, when I contacted Replica Air Guns regarding the issue, in a nut shell, I was told it was beyond the 30 day return period, it's no longer their problem and contact the manufacturer for future assistance. So buyer beware!

My First Airsoft Gun

Well, as the title says, this is my first actual airsoft guns, technically my first was a BW1911 springer, that fell apart after the first week. After awhile, well, a long time, I convinced myself to get something to replace it. This P99 was on the less expensive end of the spectrum, in terms of only price, in my opinion, honestly, probably because I'm very new to the whole thing and, well, never held alot of handguns, only rifles, but, this has to be the best feeling gun I've ever held. I was skeptical about the whole Gas thing, but I wanted something close to the real thing. So far, it has held up, and does shoot pretty accurate, people say the blow back is sluggish, but I don't notice it until I'm on the 9th mag... I got 10 out of 1 canister. I love the thing and can't stop playing with it.

Looks Great. Great Value. Decent Performance.

Delivery of the air-soft gun took a full week. The gun itself looks amazing, feels great, and shoots decently. The slide sometimes doesn't lock back properly, but other then that it performs quite good. I've only used this for about a week, so we'll see how it does after a while.

Great Budget Pistol

Great choice if you want an affordable GBB. The gun is heavy and has a decent amount of kick. I love how it functions just like the real thing in almost every way. The only issue I've encountered is on the first few magazines the slide doesn't lock back but besides that everything works perfectly. The shipping from Replica Airguns was also incredibly fast!

Thank you guys Im gonna love this gun

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.
