The Smith & Wesson M&P air pistol is a realistic copy of the Smith & Wesson M&P40. And though it may be chambered for .177-caliber (4.5 mm) steel BBs rather than the .40 S&W cartridge, the disposable 12-gram C02 cartridges that power it make it a sheer blast. Not to mention, this air pistol comes with an 18-round drop-free magazine. Need I say more?
Smith & Wesson M&P Air Pistol
Distributed by Umarex USA and exclusively licensed by Smith & Wesson, the Smith & Wesson M&P air pistol is one of Umarex USA's wide range of replica air pistols that is built to nearly the same specifications as the original.
Since its debut in 2006, Umarex USA has been a premium provider of sporting and replica air pistols and rifles. Their world-class products represent a big chunk of several niche communities that range from air guns and airsoft to paintball and tactical accessories. Recently, the company even branched out into rimfire rifles. But enough about Umarex; let us talk more about the Smith & Wesson M&P air pistol.
The Smith & Wesson M&P air pistol features a 4 1/4 inch, smooth-bore barrel alongside an overall length of 7 1/2 inches – both of which are nearly identical to the specifications of the original M&P40. Additionally, the synthetic slide and frame combine to give the pistol a hefty weight of 1.65 pounds – just ounces off from the original. Other features include fixed tactical sights with a green fiber-optic rear sight, manual thumb safety, integral accessory rail and an authentic stippled grip that includes the Smith & Wesson logo.
As noted, the Smith & Wesson M&P air pistol is an air pistol – it is not an airsoft pistol. It is designed to fire .177-caliber (4.5mm) steel BBs and is powered by disposable 12-gram CO2cartridges. The cartridges are loaded into the magazine, which is then inserted into the grip of the gun, and provides the pistol with a source of compressed air which acts as a propellant that is released with each pull of the amazingly realistic double-action trigger. This particular air pistol is capable of discharging projectiles at a velocity of up to 480 fps.
The Smith & Wesson M&P air pistol may not be the real thing. It may not boast all of the features of the real thing. But it is as close as you can get with an air pistol. It is perfect for:
- Air pistol collectors
- Varmint hunting
- Pest control
- Sport shooting
- Much more…
