FULL AUTO Beretta 92 by Umarex!
 
Last week or before, I was watching one of the shooting/gun shows on television and they did a segment on one of the Umarex full auto C02 BB rifles. I can't remember if they mentioned that FA pistols were also available or if I just found them searching for "umarex" later? How ever I found them, there is a full auto Beretta M-92 C02 BB pistol made by Umarex (and assorted other weapons of FA capability). I have no idea if they are high quality and long lasting, but they sure look like a heck of a lot of Fun!


Does anyone around here have one and can you comment of their longevity, or lack there of? Any other thoughts or comments on them?


Although I recently turned 60, there are certain limited times I enjoy feeling or acting like a kid. This usually takes the form of rapidly emptying a 25 round magazine using a 10/22 rifle at the range, asulting aluminum soda cans. Watching videos of this FA BB pistol has me imagining being a kid far more often, and spending money on lots of C02 and steel BB's. I think I need to order one of these, with at least 1 spare magazine, plenty of BB's and C02! Even Amazon carries these with various options (W or W/O spare accessories, etc). Prices start around $100 and go up with added goodies. This could be one heck of a lot of fun for the money?


What do you think?

Umarex has some good stuff. It works, at least their uzi does.

mushka 09-03-2019 11:03 PM

Only thing is that the Umerax mags are a pita to load.

LoneWolfSS454 09-04-2019 06:21 AM

Thanks for responding mushka. It's kind of funny you mentioned filling the mags, in a couple of videos, some of the people filling them were spilling BB's all over the place. I think some others were using home made "tools" to push & keep the fill hole open. I guess filling mags might be annoying, but could just require some innovation in learning a good technique?

I load the mags over a towel and drop quite a few. I keep a magnet close to get all the one's I drop easier. My uzi shoot well and is very accurate for a BB gun.

LoneWolfSS454 09-07-2019 03:57 PM

Do you think it's possible a home made funnel, cut from an aluminum can, would work? One could be made like a miniature automotive automatic transmission funnel (more or less - long & thin at the mag fill hole end).
BTW, have you had any issues with the brass C02 cylinder hole punching pin wearing fast or breaking as a few Amazon reviewers said?

mushka 09-13-2019 06:44 PM

Nope, The way the mags load a tube would just mean a lot of dropped BB's . Never been any problems with the gaskets, or pin that opens co2 cylinder. Mine's been trouble free.

Thanks. That's good to hear on the reliability, not so much with funnel filling the magazine. I've been almost regretting buying as many new firearms this year as I have, because I've been continually busy either ordering parts (rails, scopes, scope mounts, micro-dot sights, magazines etc), installing & tweaking parts, doing trigger jobs, that with my age and health issues I've often felt firearms-overloaded. I'll catch up eventually, over the winter at the pathetically slow rate I'm going, and get one of these full auto bad boys ordered in time for spring, I hope!

Indoor fun
 
I used to have an old Crossman pump M-1 carbine copy that shot BBs I got from a yard sale, had fun plinking in the garage in the winter but traded it to someone who wanted it a lot more than I did. I thought about a CO2 pistol and watched some videos on the full auto Umarex models and was interested in the Beretta 92 and the MP-40 (German submachine gun, not the S&W pistol).
Both were full auto, the MP40 held two cartridges and had a high capacity but after you ran thru your ammo, if you kept holding the trigger down it kept dumping CO2. If I remember right, the Beretta only dumped CO2 while it had ammo, then shut off.

For a back stop I just hung an old piece of heavy plush carpeting against the inside of the garage door then curled the bottom edge up to make a trap, kept BBs from denting the door and bouncing everywhere.

It sounds like you've had the kind of fun I'm after! The carpet trick is a great idea, thanks.

Hope no one minds me bringing an old thread up, but when I saw the words 'Umarex' and ]fun', I knew I had found a home. Back in the summer of 2016, me and my shooting friends ( age range 60's to late 70's, discovered the Umarex CO2 pistols.

3 of us got the Lugers (with working toggles), and I mean, who doesn't like a Luger? Although another guy bought the Auto Mauser broom handle.He eventually cleverly mated a Mauser stock on it. A year later, one more of us got the six shooter. Fun is the right word. I keep the Luger on my boat, and if the fish aren't biting, I start shooting at my wife's bobber. Also, is nice in the winter, down in the basement. Had just a little trouble with mine a few weeks after getting it, and the Umarex people took good care of me. I've noticed in the years since that Crossman got into the game and their products look very good. I like the 1875 chrome revolver. Great fun!

I'm glad you've reminded us. I've been so busy with other newly purchased firearms (and others) since starting this thread, that I'd nearly forgot to buy one of these. I'm still busy with other stuff, but I'm going to try to keep these more in mind until I get one. Life is too fragile and too short not to remember to have fun, when we can, as often as we can...
