This is a well-made gun
with very good accuracy and pointability. The lever for releasing
the slide is difficult to operate. The double-action trigger
pull is very heavy, but the single-action pull is lighter with a
good break point. This gun has excellent accuracy. The RWS C225 was marketed in Europe
by Umarex as the Reck
Police. In 2009, Umarex reintroduced this model as the Hammerli
P26 sporting a black and "stainless" slide.
