Firstly the build-quality of the Gamo Walther CP99 is top-notch - there's not a rattle or creak on it anywhere. For those of you used to the unthinking convenience of semi-autos then it's going to be a pain. The first 2/3 of the trigger pull rotates the magazine and its a long, stiff travel. But it actually takes very little practice to get used to it. Accuracy is an issue. The sights seem to be horribly hard to acquire a consistent target with. But fitting a laser sight, or adding a rail... (read more)

hello sorry to say, but this pistol was a large disappointment for me. the build quality is exemplary, but for over $200 it lacked in everything else. the double action trigger would be fine on a real defensive pistol for the first shot, but with casual plinking, it is absurd. the trigger felt soggy in both single and double, and traveled for two long. it was also not smooth. real hard to shoot with. the wighting of it was uncomfortable, and grouping was saddening. mag failed to seat nicely...

Well after owning many Co2 pistols, I have to say this one fits my hand perfectly, It has a nice light weight to it compared to the beretta 92f and the walther cp88 which i think are pretty heavy to hold, The only down side to this pistol is the double action, Its very heavy compared to the 92f or the cp88, however pull the slide back and the single action is nice. And as for accuracy. Dont expect to much. but practice makes perfect. and i can get a good 2 inch group at 15m, exspect the... (read more)

not very powerful, but looks the part its no good for pest control and only reasonably accurate for close up target shooting big thing is it looks like a real gun , i traded mine in against a crossman 2240 pistol which for me is much more powerful and also .22 and gives more shots per CO2. its down to your choice its not a bad product but i found the crossman better for my needs.

Looks great and handles like a 'real' gun. Accuracy ? Thought I was an ok shot but can't get good grouping whatever ammo I use - ok for tin cans though. Make sure you seat the pellets into the magazine properly or you'll get misfires a plenty !! Don't want to sound too negative because despite it's faults, I really like this pistol - under 2 seconds to empty the mag is such a stress buster - buy one !!!!!!!!!!! (read more)

I acquired my CP99 a few weeks ago and have been very happy with it. Very compact; but with a nice heft and weight to it; SA and DA trigger is fine once used to it. Accuracy is good for the 3.3" rifled barrel; added red laser accessory fits very nicely and adds both fun and added accuracy. Used standard Umarex 8 round metal mags - dependable and reliable - get extras!

The cp99 is a fantastic air pistol it is perfect for recreational use and is great fun to show off to your mates the gun is great at single action firing but i don't recommend using the double action firing as although i may look, sound and feel cool you loose alot of your accuracy. the accuracy is very good (for an air pistol) considering all co2 pistol are not very good for accuracy as they are usually based on pistols used by the police and are not needed for shooting targets but people!...

Hey guys I'm just writing this review because last year I bought the Walther CP99 it is a very comfortable gun to shoot and hold. It has the curves in the grip which make it very hard to slip away from hands which makes it good for accuracy. I also bought a silencer and the laser. The laser can easily work very well over 15 metres with a very bright red. The silencer is very useful because it reduces sound by around 50% less noise the only thing you may not enjoy about the gun is that it has... (read more)

My Walther CP99 looks good, is well built and works well and is reasonable powerful, accurate and fun to use. It's easy to get spares, pellets, CO2, etc. with shops providing attachments, laser dot, scopes, etc.
It would be nice if the current problems with gun culture would allow us plinkers to shoot without possible nightmares occurring.
I would like a local club with outdoor shooting facilities. (read more)

Great weapon, realistic and accurate. Good for both fun shooting and target practice would recommend to both experienced marksmen and novice shooters. Feels real, very accurate, great for general target shooting. Fits nicely into most holsters with little to no movement. The rear of the grip can be changed to better fit the hand of the user. this makes for much better overall feel and accuracy. 8 rebound rotary clip can run out very rapidly and reloading the clips is time consuming (read more)

Just a really nice airpistol. Easy to load the mag and unload. The way the mag is set up with magnets to hold the next 3 to 4 shots in battery plus the spring pressure there is no way you could pull the trigger fast enough to jam this up.
It is a short range air pistol maybe 20 meters as far as hitting what you aim at Smooth bore Ok I have seen that on all the Blow back air pistols. Not sure why.

First Impressions and Loading:
First impressions were good, came well packaged in its out carry case, with two magazines. The pistol itself was in a clear, sealed plastic bag and the metal parts were coated with oil to protect them from rust. Bluing is nice and even. Initially checking the gun for functionality, was very impressed, its very straight forward to use, and i only had to look at the manual once, too see how to get the gas clip out of the grip. This is done with a small lever... (read more)

This is my second review and now I have been using the Walther CP99 for about 6 months and fired off about 10,000 pellets, it just gets better and more accurate. Any initial stiffness has worn off and the earlier jams are a thing of the past, as it has worn in and I've used quality air-gun oil. I get 80+ shots from one CO2 cartridge even on fairly rapid fire. The dedicated Walther laser sight is well worth getting, as it fits neatly on the rail under the muzzle. The only problem is it makes... (read more)

I bought my CP99 in China (underground). This gun is great and apparently, it has also been modified for power prior to my purchase. I also received 2 mags, one for BB's and one or pellets. I have not shot Pellets yet but so far shooting BB's I must say that the performance is beyond what I have expected.

I liked this Walther CP99 the second I took it out of the box, nice feel although a lil heavy, it feels nice in hand.
I took it to my local firing range and the second I opened the box everybody wanted to take a look. I then proceeded to give it a shot, not bad and accurate enough but the front sight is hard to see in lower light. I added a piece of hi viz like stuff the same height as the front blade and that fixed it, ding a twoonie at 15feet!
Have fun, play safe! (read more)

A beautifully crafted piece of kit it feels and looks great. Look out for high prices. It's possible to get a Walther CP99 for £85 but some are charging up to £140. Even at that price it's almost worth it but at less than £100 it's a bargain. It looks fantastic with silencer and Hawke red dot sights but again shop around the silencer varies from less than £20 to £40. (read more)

Hi, I'm 35 I've bought my Walther CP99 10 months ago, and I'm using it every days I can. After 4000 shots this gun is still in perfect conditions! For me the CP99 is a must in CO2 guns, it's strong, not too heavy, it has a smooth feeling when you take it in your hand.
It could be a little more powerful.
And it's the James Bond choice... ;-))) (read more)

I am 27, and have been into pistols (air or otherwise) for ten years. I would have to sneak airguns into mommys house at the age of 18. I loved them for the quality craftsmanship and the attention to detail. Until now, the most expensive gun I owned was a Crossman 1008. It was nice, but plastic. I didn't really know that air pistols like the Walther CP99 existed untill I went online. I was determined to find the best co2 pistol I could find.

I bought the Walther CP99 gun for $20 so that I could plink around with my friends and it was great for that. Now that I have been playing for a while I have realized it is just a cheap starter gun. It is pretty accurate indoors, but since it uses .12 BBs it is almost obsolete outside. The pistol looks very cool, but is made entirely of cheap plastic. If you are just looking for something to mess around with then this is fine, but maybe spend the extra 10 bucks to get a nice spring pistol if... (read more)

I have had the Walther CP99 CO2 pistol for a few months, and I have shot at least 1500 rounds through it. The guns craftsmanship is top notch. It is easy to load, and I like the removable CO2 "magazine". The CP99 is very accurate. However, this pistol has very little power. Pellets will bounce right off of a plastic soda bottle from as close as 15 feet.

My Walther CP99 CO2 pistol came in a nice plastic case with two 8 round mags, and one additional back strap. Was zeroed in and very accurate out of the box. Equally accurate using Beeman coated wadcutters, and Crossman domed .177 pellets. The only negative is the amount of force needed to discharge this weapon both in S/A and D/A. If trigger pull could be appropriately reduced I would give it a 10. I would pay more for this pistol if they added a far lighter trigger. (read more)

I read all the preceding reviews on the Walther CP99 CO2 pistol, and I agree with most points. I have a Gamo PR45 (owned for over 12 years), and today I bought a new Desert Eagle blow back, which I will also review later.
The CP99 has the look of a James Bond gadget, but lacks the accuracy unless you are James Bond of course. I would say the gun is good but not excellent. If you are reviewing this with a view to a purchase, go for it. It's not perfect but it works constantly well with... (read more)

Many people claim the Walther CP99 is not very powerful or accurate but I don't find this a problem.
I find I can get a grouping of about 3/4 inch from 10 metres. I think this is intended to be a replica rather than a sporting pistol and it does the former very well with enough of the latter to hold it's own at the range.
I have also fitted a laser which is easy to do and can be removed and refitted in a second. the laser is also easily calibrated by two grub screws.

Got mine for $77 delivered from PyramydAir.com. Slightly smaller and thinner version of the CP99 and Sport versions but has some definite advantages.
Tips the scales (my scales) at roughly 26 ounces without BB and gas cartridge, about 28 ounces loaded. Solid metal construction on the top with the usual plastic composite on the bottom. Fit and finish is just as good as the German made handguns (these guns are made in Japan). Unlike some other Crosman guns, these are not made by Umarex... (read more)
