||PX4 Storm 5 Stars in my book! - 6/3/2009|
|We were looking for a really good quality training pistol that would be a close transition to the real firearm we were planning to get. We really liked the Beretta PX4 Storm in 9mm, and .45ACP, but being that my Girlfriend hasn't shot much, I wanted to start her off on something cheap to shoot, and Big in the fun factor.
The PX4 Storm by Umarex is 100% the Best Training Aid, and the most fun pellet pistol I have ever had the opportunity to wrap my hands around. It has very impressive,solid blowback action, offers a 8 over 8 (16 Shot Rotory clip, and shoot's anything from Gamo PBA Pellets to BB's.
The Blowback action, and fine attention to detail is second to none! This is an official licensed Beretta Product as well, so that might tell you a little about the quality. Umarex did their homework on this one.
The CO2 is really easy to load, and you can expect to get at least 48 shots before you'll want to reload a fresh CO2. The Accuracy is really impressive! I am not one to brag with a pistol, but at 19 yards (Indoors) I was able to get Sub 1" Groups with 10.5 Grn Cabela's Brand Ultra Magnum Round Nose Pellets. There are many pellets on the market that would offer similar performance, but I found in my trials that these pellets hold the best in the clip. Harder PBA Pellets tend to wear the friction rails in each cylinder in the clip so the pellets tend to loosen up and fall out of the clip. It will shoot PBA's at 387 fps, (Supposedly 25% faster pellets) but the heavy 10.2 grn Ultra magnums were tighter, held in the clip better and only lost 8 fps! So much for PBA Raptor's making a huge difference in a Air Pistol. Rifle yes, Pistol save your money.
All in all, this is a great gun that was the most fun to shoot out of the countless many I've owned and shot over my 40 years. It is a great training aid for someone wishing to move up to the real fire arm, and worth every penny! Simply Put, Good Job Umarex, and Buy This Pistol!|
