Comments: This excellent replica by Umarex of the Walther PPK/S has true semi-auto operation with blowback action. This gun feels very good in hand and simulates the firearm right down to the slide staying open after the last shot is taken. With its short unrifled barrel, accuracy is not very good. Shot velocity, although not very high, is very consistent for the first 25 shots. This is probably one of the most fun to shoot plinkers ever made. It is good enough, in fact, that the NRA has chosen it for its youth handgun training program.

Loading BBs: The 15-shot spring-loaded plastic magazine is a little fragile. Get several if you plan to do a lot of high-speed shooting.
