Just did my annual airsoft order. Reviews incoming. First up, Umarex Licensed H&K USP.
Specs: (from ASGI website)
Capacity: 16 rounds
I ordered this gun from Airsoft GI on Feb 27th for $45. I received it on March 3rd. I love the speed that ASGI processes and ships their orders. Along with this order was a custom gun but that is another review 🙂
The gun was in a formed clam shell package. And the boxed it was shipped in was packed well. Once again Airsoft GI has shown they care.
This gun feels nice. I think it has to do with my palm size but it feels good to hold. The exterior is made of plastic but doesn’t feel cheap. The sights aren’t adjustable but have white dots, which helps with aiming. Safety clicks into place very well. I’m more used to a Beretta’s mag release so this one might take a while to get used to. Empty, the mag drops out of the gun pretty good. I do have the option to add attachments to the front of the frame. The gun fires in dual action so the trigger pull is pretty long. There is a fake hammer that moves when you fire. Gives it a neat look I guess.
There is not a whole lot to report on this as there are not many moving parts. All the moving parts are metal. The package says that there is a hop up. It is not adjustable!
Loading the magazine. This is my first real dislike. The CO2 cartridge goes in the mag, but in order to do this you will need a allen wrench. Most have a folding wing. Besides that loading BBs is pretty easy, it holds 16 rounds. I loaded .23 BBs and fired a few rounds. The BBs seemed to drop after about 20-30 feet. I dont know if its because of the BB weight or the hop-up is just not working well. I will try this with .20 later on. I didn’t get a chance to chrono the gun until the CO2 was pretty low. It was still shooting at 290fps with a .23 BB. I was able to hit a paper target on my fence (~20ft away) 7 out of 16 times. I hope a lighter BB will increase the range and accuracy of this gun. Although I still feel pretty good about spending the $45 on this.
Great sidearm for the price. How often do you use your sidearm? Is it really worth the cost of a AEG? This gun is $45, so it wont break your budget and it looks pretty good. I havent had the chance to use this gun in any real games but I feel good about my purchase.
