Whether it be Pellet or BB or both, as a shooter, or Replica?
Any or All?
Stock, NOT Modified!
Owned or not.

Within the constraints you have set (CO2 and stock):

- Shooting: Walther CP88 Competition (feels good too)
- Replica (look and feel): Tanfoglio Limited, Swiss Arms P92
I really like the feel of these two guns in my hands. It's probably considered sacrilege but I don't like the feel of stock 1911 replicas. The grips seem too thin and too long front to back. The Limited is a custom 1911 but the wider all steel grip makes it feel so much better - more heft too. With the P92 its both the grip width and the heft I like.

Without the constraints:
- 2240 (14" barrel), Beeman P17

That' a twisted question... for me...

1911 original, like Tanfoglio (probably have smaller hand's then under500fps), M92 and 9XP. They all fit well in my hand and have a great blowback action (except for the 9XP)....

My current (unmodified / stock) favourite is the CP-99 with the matching laser sight. (I hope the laser sight doesn't disqualify it as unmodified/stock? It's the walther one.)

I like the look, feel, weight, and it's pretty accurate. I have the laser dialed in at about 25 feet and it can consistently put pellets into the dot.

For classic style and finish quality (it's as close to real blueing I have seen on this sort of thing), the Umarex 1911. I have one still for sale that I have just bumped, can't believe nobody has picked that up yet (shameless plug!).
The CP88 is a nice shooter.
ejackyou - you must have them all; what's yours?

While it isn't an accurate pistol it is my favourite pistol to handle.
The Tanfolio Witness 1911

It's realistic, all metal (except for the grips), the grip safety actually works, the blowback action is nice, the magazine resembles a real one and it's not too heavy.

Sure it doesn't have accessory rails for lasers & sights but who needs them.

That's a 'Loaded' Question! I'm all over the place!
My favourite shooter I have to agree, is the CP88Comp followed closely by the S&W 486-6 as pellet guns go.
For BB shooting I like the Tanfoglio Gold Custom. Much the same as the Limited.
As Replicas I love the Baikal Makarov MP-654, pretty much a given, though the Webley MKVI is a superb
replica, and the new DW 715 is right up there.
One of my current top choices may be soon displaced, as I've ordered the New Beretta M92 A1 full blowback BB,
this may hopefully, turn out to be the best combination shooter/replica out there, and I really did order a
Brodax along with it!

I think we can all agree that the "must have" three CO2 pistols are the Tanfoglio Witness, the GSG 92 and the SIG Sauer P226. Or am I mistaken???

Oh, and a 2240 for modding, a lot of modding [emoji16]

I think I have a stock 2240 but even it is polished. All the rest are modded.

Good thread, not so good question. Like asking a rider which is his fave motorcycle.
So will break it up in 3 parts (least you'd consider for bikes). 1- pellet CO2 handgun; 2- BB CO2 handgun; 3- plain fun handgun. Will also stick to stuff I own, otherwise imagination and desire would make it unrealistic. All unmodded, all stock.

1- pellet CO2 handgun:
This Gamo Combat R77 is a superb replica, love little stubby. Fits like a glove. Tight, heavy. A far cry from a Vigilante/357. Look at that gorgeous wide hammer. I changed it to handgun rather than pistol seeing how your first pic is that of a revolver. Wouldn't be fair to leave little stubby out due to semantics.

2- BB CO2 handgun:
Daisy model X15. May seem simplistic, pretty much all plastic. But nothing hits as hard as this thing. Wish I had a chrony to get a reading on the fps (or in a second thought, perhaps best that I don't). And so accurate the red dot actually is warranted, not something I'd consider on any other BB pistol as none is this accurate. Not a fancy replica by any means but doubt many hits as hard. This thing is a treat to fire.

3- plain fun handgun:
May be a stretch calling this thing a handgun but hey, you can shoot it one-handed and since it also fires semi-auto, guess it could pass for a wicked pistol. But since fun is the added requirement, not many others equal the Uzi replica. Impossible to shoot it in full auto without a huge smile being stamped onto your face. Just gotta land me another magazine. Anyone has an extra for sale, please let me know.

One last note: this thread is USELESS without pics!
