New Umarex M&P 40 Blowback BB Pistol.

The New Umarex M&P 40 blowback BB pistol is claimed by the manufacturer to be the ultimate in Smith and Wesson replica action pistols!

This fully functioning version of the Smith & Wesson M&P 40 is the latest action pistol introduced by Umarex USA.

The Umarex M&P 40 blowback BB pistol is CO2-powered in .177 BB caliber and is claimed to be the perfect companion to the firearm.

“The new M&P 40 Blowback is right up there among the best action pistols we’ve made. It feels and looks like a Smith & Wesson M&P. Just rack and release the slide. It even sounds good,” said Richard Turner, VP of Sales and Marketing for Umarex USA. He added, “Add the full-size drop-out magazine to that realistic sound and every dealer that stocks an M&P firearm should offer this one from Umarex.”

The shape, weight and function of the Umarex M&P 40 blowback BB pistol is claimed to have all the similarity of the live-fire handgun. It’s outfitted with a polymer chassis, superior ergonomics and textured grips. The sights are low-profile three-dot-style. The front sight is dovetail mounted and adjustable for windage. An under-barrel Picatinny rail makes it optic-ready.

A realistic drop-free magazine slides into the grip frame of the Umarex M&P 40 blowback BB pistol in authentic fashion. It’s weight mimics that of a loaded .40 caliber magazine making it ideal for reload drills.

The magazine has a capacity of 15 steel BBs and houses a single 12 gram CO2 capsule and a regulating valve. This configuration allows the magazine to be dropped free of the frame without the loss of CO2, says Umarex.

The M&P 40 from Umarex comes with two additional backstraps so shooters can maximize comfort and grip.
