*You can pull back the rear part of the slide to shoot the gun single-action, however Umarex lists this gun as double-action only.
The manufacturer states that the M&P 45's velocity is 370 fps. A recent velocity test showed that BBs delivered 360 fps and pellets 350 fps.
The owner's manual says the gun is 7.10" long. That's a typo. It's really 8.10" long.
pistols I have purchased. Has given no problems at all and gives you at good 80 shots per CO2 cylinder.
The rear cap seal on the internal valve needs to be replaced as it was not pressed on correctly to begin with. Oddly, it did not show up until a year later. I have contacted 3 pellet gun repair shops and they do not service Umarex, not even Umarex USA will service or even provide parts for this model. They will not even have me send in the part so they can look at it. I cannot repair because there is a brass ring that has to be pressed over the seal to attach the seal to the cap.
Apparently, some of Umarex's models are throwaway if anything goes wrong, unless it is under warranty.
Only one complaint, and this may be partly my fault, perhaps I didn't oil it properly. But sometimes the trigger kind of jams/locks, I think it has something to do with the rotary clip being stuck. Usually releasing and then pulling the trigger again or just pulling it hard enough does it and it's fine from there.
The black plastic rotary clip quite simply did not work for me. I tossed it.
One of the best things - it came in a real cardboard box, not a plastic clamshell. Protects the pistol when storing.
