Made by UMAREX, this co2 powered gas blowback airsoft handgun is an officially licensed airsoft replica version of the James Bond issue Walther P99 DAO pistol.
Built to be a faithful replica of the real firearm, the airsoft Walther P99 has prestige in its ergonomic design just as it is made to deliver reliability in performance. The airsoft gun is full metal, from the slide that blows back and forth with each trigger pull, to the trigger assembly and the internal parts. Without firing it, the Walther P99 DAO airsoft gun looks and feels just like the real thing.
However there are two noticeable "cons" to the UMAREX design of their licensed P99. One, the slide, though it does have the blowback function, is closed in. So each time you see the slide pulling back when the gun is fired, you don't see anything in the breach.
Just a solid piece covering what should be a hole where in a real gun, a spent bullet casing would be ejected out from.
The other design flaw is that, compared to other gas blowback airsoft pistols, the slide is also not that resistant.
You can almost feel how limp the spring is that keeps it in forward position, so much so that if you were to firmly shake the pistol, the slide would actually... slide, back and forth on its own without firing.
While the velocity is market labeled at 380 FPS, chronograph speed tests show that the 12g Co2 cartridge power allows it to maintain between 350 to 380 FPS. Because of the hard kick of Co2 powered gas blowback airsoft guns, the simulated firing experience is still satisfying, despite the flimsy spring resistance.
However, because it is a high powered airsoft pistol, it is strongly advised not to use .12g airsoft bbs as that could cause irreparable damage to the hop-up and o-ring seal system of the gun.
Most notably praised about the P99 design is its textured hand grip. Many gun enthusiasts love the way it perfectly fits in anyone's hand. The under rail in front of the gun allows for a tactical flashlight or laser to be mounted. And because this is a licensed replica, any tactical accessory that can fit the real P99 handgun can also fit the UMAREX airsoft P99 DAO pistol.
Licensed by the real firearm manufacturer, the authentic Walther P99 trademarks are engraved all over the UMAREX P99 DAO airsoft gun. Anyone who has always liked the way the P99 looks and may not want to spend more for the higher end brand replicas can get both the strong performance of Co2 and the great feeling of owning a licensed airsoft replica with this.
The licensed Walther P99 DAO Co2 gas blowback airsoft gun is affordably sold by most online airsoft retailers at under $80. Check prices below to compare.
REAL FIREARM BACKGROUND:
The P99 is a semi-automatic 9mm pistol designed by the German company Carl Walther GmbH Sportwaffen of Ulm. Built for the purpose of a modern day law enforcement application, its reliability has been praised by many in the professional shooting sport community.
