Hi guys.
Lately been looking into getting a semi auto co2 pistol.
Problem is I do not have a clue witch one.
I am looking for pellet over by if possible for better accuracy.
400+ Fps for good trajectory.
And first and foremost a very short single action pull.
I understand that it might be impossible to get all that in one gun.
I am also aware that it might require to be blowback to make things worst.
Anyway, the closet I get to those specs, the better. I will have to compromise at some
point I understand.
Any advise welcome.



Thanks. Denis

Gamo PT-85 Blowback Tactical .177 Air Pistol.

Very powerful and accurate with a 12 inch barrel.

Revolver, maybe? Crosman Vigilante: 10 shots, rifled barrel with good accuracy using pellets, SA/DA, and a rather high shot count. Also, Edmonton<500 is offering a nice Beretta 92FS in the ''for sale'' section.

Both the Beretta and the CP88 are beautiful guns and highly recommended, but in no way do they act like a semi-auto pistol. Have a look at the Umarex Desert Eagle. It uses the same small cylinder cartridge, but the blowback action cocks the hammer for you, and the trigger pull to advance the cartridge (only) is much smoother and semi-auto like.

I also have one of those for sale. :mrgreen:

Just for nostalgic value that does fit your bill:
My best is my old Crosman 1008sb Silver. Replica of the Smith & Wesson semi auto pistol, Made from 1991 to 1997, .177 caliber C02 semi auto air pistol, 8 shot rotary magazine. Single or Double action. Really nice trigger. Shoots good, about 400 fps. I still use it and my go to pistol if I want some easy fuss free shooting. The guy who used to fix my old goalie equipment back in the days when it was all leather, gave me a holster he custom made for the police force. Lots of fun

Murray hit the nail on the head.

i myself really do NOT like the "fake" SA of the CO2 pellet pistols. I say fake because although the slide cocks the hammer via blow back, pulling the trigger is what cycles the rotary (or belt) type mag. Some are better than others, but if you are expecting a crisp, sub 2lb trigger pull like on a SAA Colt Peacemaker, you are in for a rude awakening.

I would say just about all of my BB pistols (a LOT) with the exception on my 3 Ekols, have better trigger pulls than my "semi-auto" pistols...now there are exceptions like the dual stack mag type found on Beretta or CZ type semi auto's.

Oh, EVERYONE should own a Desert Eagle, the one Murray is selling, not the crap plastic "baby" one. :) :)

Thanks guys, but I am really looking for something with a real single action.
I can deal with bb if the gun is reasonably fast and accurate.
Been looking at the legends m72, any info?
Looks like a ton of fun, No?

IF you can somehow find a DU-10 - it is a true semi-auto .177 pellet pistol!


:wink:

Been There. Failed That. Maybe they'll revive that gun some day. In the meantime, likely the most functionally accurate air gun is the ol' reliable Tanfoglio Witness. However, BB and accuracy are contradictory. Great for plinking at 10 metres or so, but if you're obsessed with groups, forget it. And "fast" they are not; around 300-320.
