Hey everyone! New here, looking to get into the Airgun world. Been looking a lot at the Umarex smith and Wesson m&p 40 and love the look of it but I’ve been debating on pulling the trigger on it because of mixed reviews. 50% love it and 50% say they experience issues with co2 leaking, slide sticking ext. Just looking for anyone who has actual experience with these guns, thanks in advance.

I had zero problems with mine. One of my favorite!

You can’t buy a single airgun for everything. Golfers use many different clubs, airgunners need more than one gun

I have the co2 and powder burning 2.0 version in 9mm. Same ergonomics as expected but would have been nice to have the version 2.0 grips. Blow back on the co2 is sort of similar, just not as sharp or as much force. I found it to be a good trainer for home use. Not accurate but what can you expect from a bb pistol. I have no issues with leaking but one of my mags are faulty. It is however fun which is the main reason for purchasing one.

"...With the extensive law enforcement use of the M&P throughout the U.S. the Umarex S&W M&P40 has become an even more attractive alternative for use in training exercises.... Both the M&P40 (and M&P9) and Umarex M&P models have matching polymer frames and metal slides; the external visual differences are minimal for fit, finish, and operational details. The CO2-powered Umarex model M&P40 also has ambidextrous manual thumb safeties as required by some law enforcement agencies.

As a training gun in place of a cartridge-firing S&W M&P model, the handling characteristics are indistinguishable, including basic field stripping and cleaning. Every working feature of the M&P40 is accurately duplicated, so all training regimens can be taught and practiced with the airgun, creating matching responses right up to the moment you pull the trigger. In fact, the only significant difference between the 9mm and .40 S&W models and the .177 caliber CO2-powered Umarex is a lack of felt recoil and louder report. With a 100 percent match to the M&P, all duty holsters, magazine pouches, and rail-mounted accessories can also be used with the .177 caliber training guns
