Well, I couldn't resist.  I'd love it if someone came out with a 9mm re-issue, but that's not likely going to happen  :)  so I pulled the trigger on the Umarex version, which I found at Amazon!  Arrives tomorrow, so I'll post a 'range report' soon.




I started shooting pistols over 3 years ago, and during an internet snooping/shopping session a couple of years ago I saw an air gun version old German Luger.  Functioned just as the real ones did in that you have to rack the slide to shoot, and each time you fire it behaves just as the 9mm version does.

Tried to order back then but was unsuccessful.  I think one online store was in Canada and wouldn't ship to the USA.

Seeing this topic is going to get me searching again, haha.

Nice! I've had pump pellet guns but never CO2. Maybe you'll get lucky looking for one at a gun show, all kinds of stuff at a through them.

Yes,CO2 is a first for me, as well.  I had a bb rifle as a kid in the 70's, but that operated by cocking the lever - no CO2.

Arrived in the mail today.  Look forward to shooting it...but first I have to figure out where to buy the CO2 cartridges!  Ha, never bought one before.  Shouldn't be too hard to find out, though.  I'll fire it here in the next couple of days and report.

Most places that sell the ammunition will also sell the CO2 cartridges.

I always liked the look of the Luger.

Thanks!  It figures, though.  I've been buying ammo for a good long while and never saw/noticed the CO2.  I'm not looking for it, of course, just thought I would have noticed them a *some* point   :P

I bought a co2 B.B. gun back in high school, still have it,, but one weekend I took a trip up to the farm with my best friend at the time, and I did something I shouldn’t have but couldn’t resist!
   My buddy was one room over and between rooms was like a window, but just a square cut in a wall, but he happened to bend over and pick something up :whistle: and well I just couldn’t resist, it was the perfect opportunity, about 25ft away right through that window, and someone’s butt was in perfect alignment, so I pulled the trigger! Bad thing was it was a fresh co2 :whistle: needless to say he stood straight up and very fast! At the same time I fell over cause I was laughing so hard! He couldn’t see me but I knew what I was in for, I finally got up and walked to him and ended up getting body checked into that wall/window, which one of the boards ended up breaking, but it was ooooh so worth it!!

I did that with one of these back in school. A very fat friend bending down about 12ft in front of me, it was a huge target and I didn't have a chance of resisting. He jumped a mile, twisted round and gave me the hardest kick in the nuts I've had to this day. I still believe it was worth it. :D



G-10 air pistol. I think practically every school boy in the UK had one of these at some point. At least in my day. :) I had 3 of them I think.

Lol, he yelled, not from the pain in that fact his face was so stiff, but yelled cause he was trying to find me and told me not to be chicken and come out yet I was just laying on the floor laughing on the other side of the window.. but when I got up and stepped through the window he charged at me while I was still laughing, and tackled me in which I got slammed into that window cutout, which broke the wood and I hit the floor again still laughing. Sooooo worth it! Yet 30min later we were both laughing our butts off enjoying a sunset and some junk food talking about what happened,

I somehow ended up with two of these...sold at Fort St. Joseph Historical Park. One was bought a few years ago, and the other just recently for someone who didn't want it. What do you do with two wooden muskets...why make a nice wall display of course. Not a firearm or an air gun...but these fit in here somewhat.  :D

I’ve got. A few CO2 pistols, but this is my baby. It took me 5 years to find one in this condition i.e. perfect.

It was my first air pistol when I was 13 and it is the Original 6M match pistol. Now for the astute you’d realise that in 1983 there were no PCP pistols. So this is a fully recoilless spring pistol. Now satisfy the curious it has a single spring with a piston at either end. The forward piston propels the pellet, the rear piston vents through two ports above the grip (one on each side).

One of the pictures it looks a bit odd as it has a cocking grip to stop you impaling your hand on the foresight.

I have always been curious about the Rhino. I had for a time back in 2015 seriously considered buying one. My sensed came to me and I realized I already have too many firearms and other thngs.

Maybe you can get the CO2 Rhino then, it's quite a new thing, 2020 something  :)

 That is always a possibility. I know I was looking at one in 357 magnum.

Last year I finally bought a nice air rifle. It’s not a top of the line but it clearly does what it needs to. It’s a kral puncher breaker silent all black with synthetic stock. Quite heavy but sturdy. I did a lot of research before buying one and already have some nice upgrades on it. The hardest is the regulator which I have yet to install  :whistle: lol  I’m stoked to be back among the tribe of MTO once again. Took a very long break to get my head and life in a better place. Good to see you here chako  :cheers:  :salute:

Another Rhino admirer reporting! I mean, it is a  revolver, Italian, innovative design and packs a punch, what's not to like!
I know a high level IPSC revo guy down here who exchanged his PC Smith into one and  I'm waiting to see it in action.

Meanwhile I've been thinking of getting the airsoft or pellet version either for some training or just for fun. They just not that readily available,
I think the launch was delayed and supply is still a bit thin

TacticalStore in Sweden had plenty when I got mine less than a month ago, both Airsoft and 4.5mm.

357 is fun to reload. So many options.
