    hiya all, im considering adding a pistol to the collection, I did research the cp-1 but then I thought reloading all the time would annoy me, so I found a review of the cp99, looks good is it? any others that I should consider for this budget, its only for plinking & at the range, nothing too serious!
    budget up to £150?

    Just bought cp2. It not too bad. One that converts between pistol n rifle. Bought mainly for my ten yr old grandson to use. Pretty accurate to 30yards. In rifle format i put my Nikko sterling 3-9x40 on it. Not reslly used it as pistol but just now put shorter barrel on it n plan go club tomoz n try it out down there. Well quiet with the moderator on it too. .177.

    I too have the cp2. Originally bought for my wife as 'her rifle'., but not really up to the job. However, as a plinker it's great fun! I put a little scope on for rifle format and a little red dot for pistol. As for reloading, we find it as easy to use single shot, as it can be a faff to load the mags. I usually load the mags while she shoots single then we blow a mag each and so on.

    You would be better off getting a cp88.. Same sort of action but better made and no platic grip.. Theres plenty of good ones second hand for less than your budget.

    I have used quite a few CO2 pistols over the last ten years or so and love the ones by Umarex but I have to say that the best all round one I ever had was a Sig Sauer C226 replica. Really nice solid metal pistol with a good feel to it. One thing though is that I have always been slightly disappointed by their power output. When I tried a Weihrauch HW45 as a comparison, the difference was truly astonishing though maybe overkill for the back garden. Wasn't sure about the neighbours, still aren't. Second best for me was the Beretta M92FS by Umarex but wasn't really impressed by the trigger action. Really heavy well made pistol possibly actually worth the money. All the best.

    umarex morph,great pistol,30 shots and you get about 150 to 200 shots per co2, you can turn the power up as well via a screw but shot count drops but its bloody powerful, dead easy to load at the side as well. mine converts to rifle,carbine etc hence the name but you can just buy the pistol,if i could only own one gun this would be it

    I think the RP5 is the "replacement" for the Morph, does pellets as well.

    Personally I would recommend choosing a Umarex 8 shot pistol with a hammer, like the CP88. You can then move effortlessly between single and double action. The CP99 has an internal hammer, but to cock it you need to use your other hand and it is quite hard. The HK P30 also has a hammer, but I am currently having some tech problems with it. You won’t go far wrong with a CP88.

    I really like the Sig 226, the low power puts me off a bit!

    You could try the Beretta Px4 Storm, it has blowback and single action, takes pellets and B B s, and comes with a double 8 shot magazine, and I've seen it for as low as £105.

    Yeah, the C226 is so well made but doesn't feel or sound very powerful. The best I have used for slam is the Umarex Desert Eagle with full blow back. Huge amounts of noise and power but sadly awful plastic feel to the whole thing. Of course though it cocks ready for the next shot which is brill.

    Ok so here is my short list so far:

    Sig 226
    Umarex 1911
    CP99
    Berreta m92
    Cp88
    Px4 storm.

    I can go to Crawley to buy then I get to handle them all, maybe even try one or two?
    I know they have a short range there.

    The umarex 1911’s are nice too.
    Would be a shame to overlook a classic!!!:D

    +1 for the CP2 here, its a pistol, its a carbine, its a single shot, its a multi shot, it has good build quality, its relatively small and light weight, and the triggers not too bad either and its accurate for short ranges. :thumb:

    Sig Sauer C226 is very affordable, all metal, looks and feels great, is blowback and has lots of innovative features. However, I returned mine because I did not rate the build quality, especially compared to a Umarex pistol, but mostly because it misfired continually whatever magazine or pellet I tried. Reliability is all important and the C226, regrettably, failed me.
