Comments:  The Beretta Elite II is made in Taiwan by Wingun for Umarex. It is an all-plastic replica of the Beretta 92G Elite II with some styling elements borrowed from the Beretta 92 Vertec. The magazine of the Elite II is interchangeable with the magazines of other models from Wingun and it uses the same moving barrel firing mechanism. The Elite II is a decent action plinker with a nice feel and a smooth trigger, but it lacks a distinct break point. Like some other pistols I've tested, this one seems to group better when shot off-hand rather than from a rest. The Elite II packs the same power as the S&W M&P and the Firepower MAS.0.07, also from Wingun, but it is not nearly as accurate as these other guns.

Performance: Measurements were made on 4/12/07 at a temperature of 70 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Daisy Avanti BBs (5.5 gr). The highest velocity measured was 447 fps, the lowest was 429 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 439 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.05".

Right Profile:
Front View: The slide is fixed in place and the slide release lever and hammer are props. The magazine release button is just behind the trigger on the left side.
Right Side Markings: The safety is shown just above the trigger on the right side. The safety button must be pushed in slightly in order to slide it back and forth.
Left Side Markings:
Loading BBs: The magazine is made from metal and holds 20 steel BBs. The BBs load in a staggered fashion, similar to the "double-stack" magazines of airsoft pistols. The magazine of the Elite II is the same unit as used for the Palco Sports M84. When re-inserting the slide, push in on the slide release button.


 
Loading CO2: The grip cover is a one-piece unit that slides back on forth to reveal the CO2 cylinder and piercing mechanism.
