The first one we bought worked fine for the first 'session' of playing with it. However, it jammed and stopped working altogether within a few minutes the second time we used it. I'll admit, my back was turned; but, for the life of me, I couldn't even figure out what was jammed, let alone figure out how to fix it. So, we returned it, exchanging the gun for an identical model.
The second gun 'jammed' while dry firing the weapon to test battery installation (i.e., before we even put a single BB in). I was holding the gun horizontally, having just switched over to full-auto mode. I moved suddenly with the pistol (lifting it up out of reach), and the gun jammed.
I dissected this one, and am pretty sure that what's happening involves a rod/switch mechanism which prevents the weapon from being fully-auto full-time. The interrupter mechanism is a spring-loaded, gear-driven lever (a gear pushes an ell-shaped rod forward, which throws a switch stopping the full-auto fire, and the spring pulls the rod back into its initial position, otherwise the pistol will only operate in fully automatic fire mode). If this rod comes out of its operating channel, the 'blow-back' slide mechanism will jam.
We've had a similar problem with my kid's Nerf Stampede ECS, which will only operate in fully auto mode when the gun is held horizontally (to the left, no less...).
The fact that the return rod on this Walther P99 electric airsoft pistol comes out soooo easily, twice now, leads me to rate this otherwise trustworthy brand so poorly.
It is important to make it clear that I do not play war games or airsoft battles. The pistol was purchased purely for indoor target practice purposes. Furthermore, it was also intended for every member of the family, including younger ones. If you are looking for a pistol for war gaming that can hit a man-size object at 20 yards, you probably need to look elsewhere.
Let's go over the bads:
- The battery terminals are not conventional. The positive terminals in the compartment have springs instead of the usual tab. The diameter of the springs is also too large for my rechargeable batteries. This was why it did not work the first time. A bit of hot glue and aluminum foil pieces fix the problem. Don't blame me if you cause an electrical fire doing this!
- The Weaver mount is a bit wider than usual. Nonetheless, I was able to slide a $12 pistol weaver adaptor rail on. Don't over tighten the clamp, the gun is made of plastic!
- The built-in "iron" sight is not exactly on target, and it is made of transparent plastic with no markers! This makes it next to useless.
Now for some neutral points:
- The clips are not bad. I am used to single shot air rifles and pellet magazines that require careful loading. Maybe this is an issue if you play war games and have to reload the clips while getting shot at.
- The power is quite low on this gun. At 15 feet (not yards!), it cannot even punch through regular copier/printer paper. I don't think this is a weak point because it makes for safer indoor target practice.Read more ›
