Princess Auto has the non-blowback version of the S&W MP-40 on sale for $50.00. Just wondering if is fairly accurate for a BB pistol? I did read some reviews that said it was pretty good. Thanks.

I have one I do find pretty accurate for a bb pistol. Also always goes bang when I pull the trigger worth the money.

Yes it's accurate for a BB pistol, enough to use it for mice eradication at short range (10-25 feet) - one shot, one kill. Also is pretty frugal on CO2, and in my case, reliable and durable (had it for 5+ years).

I second all previous comments.
Hard hitter. High shot count. Not much moves on that gun so highly reliable.
Accuracy will depend of your trigger discipline as the trigger pull is long and heavy.
I had to shave the tip of the trigger blade on mine as it was rubbing on the trigger guard at he end of the stroke.

Thanks for the replies. I did pick one up today. I tried to google what the shot count is per cartridge but couldn’t really find anything. Does anyone know what the shot count is roughly?

80+ good shots in the right conditions IIRC, more with high temps (25°C and up).

Get yourself extra magazines for this one…I have three and still have to reload a fourth one.
