First Look: Umarex Walther PPS M2 C02 Pistol

posted on January 28, 2020

Getting in the pistol training you need can be a challenge during the cold winter months. In addition to this, range time isn’t cheap, and ammo costs money, and to top things off, finding the time to pack up your gear and head to the range can be a challenge in today’s fast-paced modern lifestyle.

Training with an airsoft or BB gun which mimics the size and shape of your pistol is one way to overcome these problems. The more a BB gun or airsoft gun is like your carry pistol or competition, the better value it is as a training aid. With that in mind, Umarex has created the Walther PPS M2 BB gun as a way to train without going to the range, and also to enjoy shooting with friends or family.

The Umarex Walther PPS M2 has a realistic blowback action and last round hold open, making it ideal for training. Umarex is offering an officially licensed replica with the same thin profile and superb grip texture found in the centerfire version of the PPS M2. The same features which make the PPS M2 an excellent pistol for concealed carry, like a slim profile and comfortable grip, are also found on the PPS M2 BB gun.

For those who would rather just have fun, the PPS M2 is ideal for that, too. The gun runs on a commonly available 12 gram CO2 cartridge that is easily swapped out using the tool stored in the gun's backstrap.

The Umarex Walther PPS M2 C02 pistol retails at a suggested MSRP of $79.99. For more information, visit
