Greatest CO2 pistol ive owned, and ive had a fair few.
beautiful action, excellent accuracy and very reliable.
mine was manufactured by Umarex, so that may have something to do with it, but i never applied any oil, or did any maintenence and i never had a single problem with it.
Until my uncle broke the screw for the gas cylinder, causing the cartridge to not fit properly. Tw@t.
Anyway, definatly recommend, excellent. (read more)

let me statt off by saying that I loved this gun the moment I bought it. I wanted a blowback pistol and this was the best one in the store. I also liked that it was the pistol used by james bond.
pretty good power
great feeling blowback action
easy to work on
requires care (if you own this gun you had better use an all synthetic oil on EVERY co2 cylinder. Otherwies the piston assembly WILL fail.)

O.K. so i'm new to reviewing this kind of thing. i usually use the more standard pnuematic or break barrel air pistols by webley and diasy but i am very impressed by this item.i have read many mixed reviews but it was the factor that i've always loved the ppk that pushed me towards buying it.first of it does take practice to get accurate shots with the ppk as it does have some kick on it but thats all part of the fun.its very well made and has a decent weight about it.the magazine looks...

What a really cool looking firearm replica The Umarex Walther PPK/S CO2 pistol is. I had to have it because it is a copy of one of the sleekest little pistols ever created. So like everyone else here, I bought it and I shot it . . . when it would cooperate.
I thought that maybe my new PPK/S CO2 pistol might need some breaking in since it had some strange misfires out of the box. Surprisingly, I ended up having to deburr the slide in two locations as it was dragging on the barrel shroud and... (read more)

I must have wretched luck when it comes to blowback pistols. I really looked forward to this one, being a James Bond fan and all. But the problem is that this blowback pistol - at least the one I have - doesn't blowback at all. Instead, it consistantly jams when the blowback mechanism attempts to return to the front (firing) position.. About a half inch from the muzzle it stops short and I have to shove the slide forward into position. This hardly makes it a semi-automaric.
I've tried... (read more)

The Umarex Walther PPK/S BB pistol is the ultimate plinker but good fun. I practice my shooting with this but not for the accuracy of the pistol. I use more accurate pistols and lead pellets for that, which is what I would expect. I fitted an extra light spring under the slide to ensure the slide travels back all the way after firing. The slide started to stick a bit after a lot of use, gun oil helps. Very light and easy to aim and hold. Not as accurate as it would have been if had fired... (read more)

I've bought, and broke this Umarex Walther PPK/S BB pistol like 12 times, an it didn't break cuz it a bad build, cuz its tough as hell! I'm just brutal on equipment.
It shoots straight until you drop it off the roof of the apartment building with the parking lot of shattered windows...

Soo...we all know that this is a smooth-barelled gun for fun and not accuracy.
However, I must say that buying with this in mind, the gun is much more accurate than I expected, despite most reviews making claims such as
"the gun is so inaccurate that at five paces it'll miss a target completely, hit the edges of the pellet trap and ricochet unpredictably." (expert reviewer)
Personally, at five paces, the gun will shoot through the same hole more than once, and 15 shots can easily be grouped to... (read more)

Not to accurate. For plinking, not for target practice. Really good fun for a few hundred shots. After that the co2 valve broke and is leaking so bad it empties a cartridge in less than a minute.

Solid cast metal with elegant blued finish, blowback feels fairly authentic. The ppk/s fires semi auto without any problems what so ever, never had any blockages in the breach or barrel.
Also the weapon is quite customisable (laser, mini mag light e.ct) and most operating parts for the gun are available for purchare should a replacement be needed. for the price, you cant knock the ppk/s its compact, easy to use, and somewhat reliable.
I'd reccomend the ppk/s to any begginer or intermediate... (read more)

Low power and the accuracy drops after a few hundred shots. Also it loses its semi auto capabilities after a while as the slide doesn't return to its original position. So if anyone else has had this problem and fixed it then i would like to know as I have no idea how to do so.

I use these realistic air pistols in training before allowing cadets to touch the real guns. In this respect, the Umarex Walther PPK/S BB pistol excels, in most others it fails.
While loading the co2 and bbs is easy enough, jacking the slide can be an exercise in futility. It quite often hangs up and requires you remove the magazine to rack it forward again.
Shooting can be a matter of luck. I've tried steel, lead and copper bbs without any great degree of success. When it does fire you... (read more)

There seems to be a lot of 'problems' with PPK's that some of the reviewers here own. I can only put that down to manufacturing problems their PPK's have had. The PPK I have has not caused me any of the problems I have heard or read about. I started using copper headed BB's in the PPK and they seem to have increased the PPK's velocity more than when I use the steel BB's. Even though, it is a powerful Pistol to own and should be handled carefully. It will never be as accurate as a Gamo... (read more)

I bought mine about 4 months ago. I love thats its James Bonds original gun, it's made of almost all metal, and the blow back is awesome. It's fun if you just want to screw around or you just want a replica of the PPK. I've cycled about 500 rounds threw it but i haven't used it in a few months got bored of it easily. Main reasons i didn't recommend it is because the accuracy is horrible and for the price (i paid $120) you could get something much better like a Crosman 2289. (read more)

Like the rest of the Umarex CO2 gun line, this is both a replica of a real firearm and a working airgun. Where it differs from the other guns in their range is that instead of firing pellets from a rotary clip in a concealed revolver mechanism it uses BB's in a stick magazine and a reciprocating "blow-back" mechanism. It also has a smooth brass barrel rather than their usual rifled steel.
The real Walther PPK originated in the PP designed in 1929 as a weapon for the German... (read more)

The Walther PPK/S is my 6th/7th and 8th Air Pistol (Yes I've had 3!). They are all the German made ones.
The 1st one I bought new had a faulty magazine, the pin in the top was missing, and so BBs were coming straight up through the top of the magazine under the mags spring pressure, and then rolling down inside the pistol and jamming up the trigger and the top slide. They just replaced it with a new pistol. The new pistol's mag is still holding together after 1600 shots, but I think the... (read more)

Very nice replica, feels good in your hand (weight and fit), mine is 1 month old, barely 10 CO2 cartridges but removing the last one, the plastic knob came off turning around the metal screw making the extraction impossible by normal procedures.

I've had my ppk for quite a while now and have to say it looks the part.
The blowback system is good and looks good if anyone is watching and when the magazine is empty the slider locks back just like the real thing.
However, it has to be the most inaccurate pistol I have ever used. It can fire rapidly but this seriously reduces the shots per cartridge and cools the CO2 canister which is housed right behind the flimsey plastic magazine so it gets that cold and can do the magazine some... (read more)

I had a Umarex Walther PPK/S BB pistol for 2 years. It is made in Japan.
Quality - The quality of the PPK is very reasonable but not as good as other Umares products.
Accuracy - it could not hit a Coke can at 10 metre distances. Even my Gamo V3 did more accurate than it.
Anyway, the PPK is a very good gun for collectors. Almost all the functions of the real PPK works on the CO2 PPK. Maybe Germany made PPK better, I do not know. (read more)

As soon as I opened the packet for this Umarex Walther PPK I thought wow. I picked it up and it has a nice weight, full metal construction. I put a cartridge in and filled the mag.

I stated accuracy as a 'bad point' of the Umarex Walther PPK/S BB pistol, but you must understand that this is not a pistol for target work, nor hunting/pest control. This is purely a 'serious' fun gun. The blow-back action is quite cool, and if you keep it cleaned well you should have no problems with the blow-back action. Let it get a little gummed up, or use old BB's in it, and you'll be asking for malfunctions. Great soda bottle (plastic!) blaster at 10 yards. Wouldn't try tin cans, but... (read more)
