The main reason why I play airsoft is to enjoy shooting with the best of my buddies. We go in, shoot at each other for some time, and then get out and grab a meal after. However, while you’re shooting, what could be more fun than shooting a fully automatic pistol? Yes, that’s right, the Umarex Beretta M92 A1 has got a full-auto setting, and here’s why you should get it. Keep reading for our full Umarex Beretta M92 A1 review.
Things To Consider Before Buying A CO2 Pistol
Before you go out and get yourself an airsoft pistol, here are some reasons why you should consider getting a CO2 airsoft pistol.
Consider the weather where you often play airsoft. Most gas guns do not work well in colder temperatures especially green gas airsoft pistols. It is because of what we call the cooldown effect where when you shoot your gun, the gas in your chamber gets colder and colder and makes it harder for you to shoot your pistol. CO2 pistols tend to withstand the cold weather more as some say that it world fine for them, while others say that even CO2 pistols are harder to operate in colder weather. So consider the weather from where you are and if CO2 pistols are the right for you.
You also need to consider where you will be playing. As you may know, there are some restrictions regarding the power of your gun. In Close Quarter Battles or CQB, oftentimes they require airsoft guns to be at a lower FPS to be qualified for use. CO2 guns most often than not, fire higher than green gas guns. Some CO2 guns go above 350 FPS and sometimes even reach the 400 mark where in some cases, that is not allowed. On the other hand, playing outdoors can possibly benefit you if you are using a CO2 airsoft pistol because of the higher power limit. So take into consideration where you will be playing most of the time.
Umarex Beretta M92 A1 Review
The Umarex Beretta M92 A1 is the airsoft pistol that can give you the most fun inside the arena. The most talked-about pistol because of its fully automatic firing mode is constructed with metal both the frame and slide. When you lift this pistol up, it will be one of the heaviest pistols that you have ever carried to withstand the pressure of the gas blowback this pistol can give you.
It shoots at 330 FPS using a CO2 cartridge hidden inside the double-stacked magazine that allows you to shoot up to 22 rounds of BBs. It has an adjustable hop-up for you to adjust accordingly. This Beretta is also equipped with an accessory rail where you can put all your favorite light and laser accessories, but the white dot sights work perfectly if you opt not to attach anything to it.
- Full-Automatic mode
- Realistic look and weight
- High Capacity 22-round magazine
- Full metal construction
- More CO2 consumption on full-auto mode
- Boldly lettered warnings in white on the side of the gun destroy aesthetics
The most talked-about feature of this pistol is the full-automatic mode. It allows you to fire all 22 rounds in one go and maybe more. You can probably get around 3 full mags on the full-auto mode before running out of CO2. The switch for this mode is found just right behind the safety switch. There is no chance for you to accidentally switch it to full auto mode when you don’t intend to because it is strategically placed. Have a little more fun with this mode when you shoot all your BBs.
