Hey,

im looking to get a pellet pistol for some training and plinking. So what's the best value pistol out there? Which has the most shots per fill and accuracy?

Wow!

That is a very difficult question to answer...

Is price an problem?

Are you sure that you want a Co2 pistol?

Umarex makes a few very nice pellet pistols that all use the same 8 shot metal rotary mag.

Do you want/need blow-back?

lets say 200$ max.

I want a semi auto, so pretty sure co2 is what i need.

i would prefer blow back, but if there is something more accurate and way more efficient i would get that instead. im not really sure how much gas is "wasted" with blow backs.

If you are looking for accuracy and efficiency / lots of shots which were mentioned in your first post, don’t bother with blowback as nice as it is to have for realism. The best ones would be the Umarex flagships: Walther CP88 (especially the long barrel version), Beretta 92 and Colt 1911. However, they are all a lot more than $200 new by the time you add up tax and shipping.

Now just by chance, you can pick up an as-new 1911 off the For Sale page for exactly $200 (plus shipping – normally $15). I am told the seller is an excellent fellow, totally reliable and a pleasure to deal with… :D

He only sells to similar people who assure they are mature, responsible shooters.

The Colt 1911 is not a single-action handgun (semi-auto). That may not be a minus to the OP, but typically newbies looking for a "semi-auto" are looking for single-action, blowback guns. The Desert Eagle and any handgun that uses the double-ended 16-shot mag is as close as you'll get in a pellet shooter.

...The S&W M&P 45 is a nice inexpensive option that handles and shoots like some more expensive pellet guns....I'm quite fond of mine, I'm still experimenting with different pellets and this evening found it really likes Superdomes......One has to choose where to buy as the prices seem to fluctuate all over (for everything) .............

How about a SPA CP1?

Very accurate, and with a softer hammer spring you will get about 100 good shots out of it. The wood grip is easily changed to suit your hands/taste, here's mine:

The Colt shoots both single action and double action. I think all the Umarex pellet shooters do, though the CP99 has a fake slide that is difficult to rack for SA. In all of them though including the blowback ones, the trigger still indexes the mag so always partially DA anyway.

An excellent accurate pistol @ 18 feet for me -as good as the HW40. I use JSB Exact Express but have to seat this pellet.

...Yes, I too have better results and no bad issues when I 'seat' the pellets first .( I use a golf tee with a piece of pex tube pushed onto it so they are all seated exactly the same on all those Umarex mags)

I realize this has strayed a little off-topic, but as regards 'seating' pellets in the Umarex mags - I have never tested this out as to how effective it is but to ensure consistency I habitually insert the 8 pellets and then hold the mag face down on a flat surface with my finger and then push the pellets until they too touch the surface. They are then all at the same depth and flush with the front of the mag. Anyone think this is a good or bad idea?

I found it crucial with the CP99, otherwise the pellets would catch and the mag would grind its way around. I use a quarter inch audio jack to push them in and then they sit just below the top of the chamber.

You also might consider the 2240 - a oldie but a goodie; single shot only - but it can be both accurate and very efficient in Co2 usage - and can be upgraded as much as you want as you decide what mods you want for it...
