OverviewUmarex is one of the biggest gun makers in this world and they always try to provide their best gun in the market. Replica air guns are a forte of Umarex, and this Umarex Legends M712 Air Gun review explores how the air pistol could possibly be the paragon of all gun twins. There were a few varieties of this gun (ordinarily called the “Broom handle Mauser” in light of the fact that they resemble a floor brush handle), and this is a duplicate of the Schnellfeuer (German for quick or fast shoot) variant of the gun, which was created from 1932 to 1936.
- Sturdy trigger pull:
The trigger draw on the Umarex C96 Mauser is decent and short, with a medium weight of around 5-6 pounds, taking into consideration those speedy back to back shots. Not at all like the new Beretta Mod. 84 FS or Umarex Makarov Ultra , the BB magazine loading is finished by the blowback activity as opposed to the first piece of the trigger force which gives the Mauser C96 the best trigger by a wide margin out of each of the three firearms.
- Perfect combination of plastic and metal body:
Despite the fact that there is a considerable amount of plastic on the outside, there is a lot of metal utilized as a part of whatever remains of this pistol, giving it a strong 2 pounds of mass in your grasp. You will discover it has a metal jolt, trigger, hammer, wellbeing, back sight, internal barrel and practically the majority of the full size drop out metal magazine which by the way holds the CO2 and the BB’s. Fit and completion appears to be great.
With that said, the weapon itself looks/feels amazing – it is a mirror picture of the first Umarex Legends, and its structure is strong (all metal, the moving parts are overwhelming and don’t feel cheap by any means, and the piece without a doubt has some weight to it.) Umarex have truly gotten their work done with the M712, this one came all around bundled with a custom, finely fitted box with a hex wrench for fixing the pin into the CO2 canister (situated at the base of the magazine).
Make sure to change CO2 cans often enough, otherwise you might get caught off-guard with what seems like the gun’s switching from semi-auto to full-auto functionality. This happens most notably if you fire more than three magazines with just one CO2 can (the CO2 gets diminished quite quickly).
The grasp is plastic, yet it does not feel shoddy like a water pistol or any other C02 guns out there – when you hold this, you do not feel like you are holding a compressed air firearm by any stretch of the imagination. If you’re brand-loyal and are looking for a little bit more of a ‘conventional’ air pistol design, check out our Umarex Colt Commander 177 Air Gun review and the Umarex Beretta Pistol PX4 Storm review for possible alternatives.
- Efficient optics:
The rear sight is completely customizable, but it is more effective with a laser sight. This is an awesome firearm for shooting tin jars, plinking, hitting spinners etc. It is a throughout-the-day shooter, so stock up on ammunition and CO2.
