Hello CAF,
Looking for advice from actual owners/users of this replica.
Please share the good, the bad and the ugly.
Thanks in advance for any input you may have.

If you are looking for a one to one replica, The James Bond look? forget it.
The pistol grip is longer on this C02 version to accommodate the CO2 bulb
a real PPK is not that long, ( Unless you have extender mag with extra rounds )

Accuracy is garbage, but this is a replica made more for plinking.

I have had my Umarex Walther PPK, CO2 BB gun for more than 3 years. I have a bit of a different opinion of it.

I think it is exactly what it claims to be. A replica BB pistol. I have never handled the real firearm, so can't comment on the exact comparison. But it is a fun compact CO2 BB pistol, with snappy blowback action. I found it to be reasonable in accuracy, compared to other similar replicas, some costing a lot more. I shoot it on a 24 ft. basement range, and it's accuracy is as good as my Glock's (17 Gen 4 & 19x), as well as my Beretta 92A1. And I don't have a problem with it's velocity. Although I don't have a chrono, I feel the velocity isn't an issue. I would guess it is around 300 fps.

I'm not sure what everyone everyone expects from a CO2 blowback replica BB gun with a smooth bore barrel that is around 3" long, and can be bought for less than $100 CDN. I was very happy with my purchase.

I get around 100 good shots from one CO2, which I feel is pretty good for a blow back CO2 pistol. And spare stick magazines can be bought a reasonable price.

Only complaint, is the Walther laser specifically designed for it. I replaced the trigger guard with it, but it never held it's zero for me, so I removed it. If some wants it I can sell it to them at a good price.

Finally, Princess Auto is clearing it out for $75.

At that price, I call it a must buy.

And you can pretend to be Bond, James Bond. And it allows you to order your martini's shaken, not stirred. Need I say any more.

You are correct; the grip is too long for a PPK. It just so happens, though, that this replica is identified as a PPK/S, which has a longer grip to accommodate an extra round. This replica is also realistic in that it has the finger rest where the bottom of the mag would be - a feature of the original mag that came with the PPK/S

All around, I would say this is a pretty good replica, complete with Walther branding. I do agree that this pistol is only good for plinking, but what else would you expect of any BB gun?
