Umarex mp40

Postby Cjindahouse » Sat Oct 07, 2017 4:19 pm

Just ordered me an Umarex C02 Mp40 GBB today, anyone else thinking of getting one? I was very happy to see this released after the shelving of the KWA version! Also picked up a KWC 1911 anniversary edition and the third kwc Luger I've had in as many years :')

I got mine last month they are very good. Had to order the mags from Germany as they are not out in uk yet. got 7 in Total
Mine was shooting hot though at 370 FPS
Used it in a woodland game 3 weeks ago and the lack of hop up dose hinder you. but some shoots far and true others flop to the floor but the smile per B.B. is amazing it has become my number 1 gun
You get about 3-5 mags out of the co2 cartridge depending on shooting style. My one likes to be in full auto better than semi I did have a couple of miss feeds at the start of the day but it was fresh out of the box and the rest of the day ran without any problem I only used 14 bulbs for a whole game day.

370, nice for cqb, still under the 1j limit so the sites local to me will allow it :’) Were you running the 1j mags though because I’ve seen them chrono pretty consistent in the sub 320 region, plus it does have a hop unit though? It’s fixed so finding the right weight bbs is the key (at least it has been with my other guns of the sort)

No there is no hop up unit at all I did open it up to check and it is just a plain barrel. Airsoft Action did a Did a article on the gun and confirmed this is no up-up unit
and yes I am using the 1j mags
Maybe it’s just my one that is a little hot but I doubt it
I’m using umarex brand co2 bulbs too
Mine is on par with the FPS in this clip

Anyone tried to test the true effective range i saw a 30m test and it did well semi and full, i dont want shell out that kind of money for a primary that shoots less than 50m effectively, and does it use two bulbs per magazine or one?

3 weeks ago I took this to a woodland game day at reforger airsoft and used it as my main weapon all day it was very hit and miss with one burst going miles and others dropping like a stone however overall I very much liked the gun

Ok I checked all my mags today turns out the ones I got from Germany are the Standard mags not the 1j mags only the mag that came with the gun was 1j
On the 1j mag I was getting between 300-350 FPS and on the Normal mags 350-400 FPS

That was on a fresh bulb after the first 50 rounds it did settle down to around 360-370fps
