Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is a little different then that of the real steel APX. On the real steel APX there is actually a trigger safety and the actual gun uses a striker based system with a fairly short reset and take-up. On the Umarex Replica Airsoft version the trigger does not have a built in safety and the reset and take-up are much longer (full length). I have read that both the real steal and Airsoft versions of the APX both have about 6 pounds trigger pulls but I personally felt like the Airsoft version was heavier than that, perhaps because of the  long pull. Overall the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol trigger is acceptable but not my favorite.

Accuracy: I have not shot the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol so far but I have shot the 4.5mm Steel BB version of this CO2 Pistol and it performed well getting pretty much exactly what Umarex claimed for fps so I would expect the Airsfot version to shoot pretty close to 325 fps with .20 gram Airsoft BB’s. Accuracy for the Steel BB version was about 2 inches from 30 feet away with a 10 round group. Generally speaking the same Airsoft version will shoot a bit more open so I am hoping to get somewhere near a 4 inch group with the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol.

Build Quality: Very good, the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol feels heavier than 1.5 pounds in the hand, perhaps because it is a more compact gun. The metal slide, metal stick mag and internal metal parts all help to balance off the polymer frame nicely.  Fit and finish is also good.

Realism: The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol overall is a really close replica to the real steel APX other than the added safety and missing trigger safety. The added safety does not stand out too much and does serve a purpose while the missing trigger safety could of at least been there for show if not an actual working safety. Other than that the Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is very close to the Beretta APX with its full licensing, open ejection port, recessed barrel working slide catch release and blowback operation.

  • Good weight and feel to it, build quality seems good overall.

  • Really nice replica of the original Beretta APX in most ways.

  • Working slide catch and release. Will also lock back on last shot.

  • Fully Beretta licensed through umarex.

  • Easy to see white dot sights front and back.

  • Recessed barrel and open ejection port for added realism.

  • Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.

  • Stick magazine but plate gives the elusion of a full size magazine.

  • Warning instruction are nice and discreet!

  • Comes with two magazines and an additional back strap grip in a different color.


  • Trigger is a bit long and perhaps heavier than the real steel APX trigger. It also does not have the trigger safety.

  • Has a stick magazine rather than a full size magazine.

  • Comes with orange tip but can be removed with some work.


I like that the Airsoft version of the Beretta APX now comes in a box and also includes not only an extra magazine but also an included grip back strap in an alternate color for those that want a bit of customization. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol feels good in the hand and even thought the trigger is a bit long you can still get off some pretty quick shots since the trigger pull is not too tough. The Umarex Beretta APX CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol makes a fairly economical option for your sidearm in Airsoft battles and if you want more than two magazines than additional magazines are not that expensive and will not weigh you down on the field.
