So a bit obvious – but number 1 was always going to be a Glock! This is the G19 from Umarex, a fully licensed Co2 air pistol featuring the unmistakable looks and reliability of its predecessor. This pistol retains many features of the original pistol such as the all-metal slide and unique trigger blade safety. The pistol also has a realistic weight of over 700g to help add to the sense of realism when firing.
Our number 2 is the outstanding Colt M45 CQBP Desert Steel Co2 air pistol from Umarex. This is a fully licensed pistol with a full metal construction that looks and feels authentic. This pistol uses 12g co2 cartridges which are stored inside the grip of the pistol and it fires 4.5 steel BBs. The M45 features a strong blowback system and has an under rail to fit all your accessories.
This Beretta APX is in position 3 in our top-ten of Co2 air pistols. Beretta fully licenced from Umarex, this APX will not disappoint – the pistol has a capacity of 19 steel bb rounds held in its realistic looking magazine. This is a pistol that certainly deserves to be in our top-ten line up of air pistols.
This Colt defender .177 co2 steel BB pistol has outstanding build quality with its all-metal construction. This steel BB pistol feels and looks as authentic as the real compact variant of the classic Colt 1911. This pistol uses 12g co2 cartridges which are stored inside the grip of the pistol. A well deserving 4th place in our top-ten of air pistols.
Just making it into our top 5 is this great looking S&W M&P40 TS FDE CO2 Air Pistol from UMAREX. The magazine holds 19 steel BBs in .177/4.5 mm. Its polymer frame in Flat Dark Earth (FDE) and the black metal slide gives this pistol a solid, heavy feel and it delivers a realistic blowback effect.
At number 6 is this low cost high powered R17 Co2 air pistol from TX Pistols. A non-blowback full metal air pistol that is Co2 powered and features a removable metal magazine that holds 4.5 steel BBs. This TX version of the R17 possesses all the good characteristics that you can now expect from TX pistols, including high power, pinpoint accuracy and a comfortable grip.
So number 7 in our top-ten of Co2 powered air pistols is another great looking pistol from TX Pistols. This is the M1911 1:1 scale, fixed slide, low cost, high powered, matt black pistol. Great quality and feels very realistic in the hand due to it weight and balance.
OK ready for another, its time for number 8 – a quality low-cost co2 pistol from TX Pistols. This is the M&P non-blowback full metal air pistol with a great magazine system that holds 4.5 steel BBs. This TX version of the M&P possesses all the good characteristics that you can now expect from TX pistols, including high power, pinpoint accuracy and a comfortable grip.
You may ask why this incredible Beretta XXTREME is only at number 9, well its due to the cost – although we love it, it is a bit pricey. Its a great pistol, and with so much included within the hard case that you also get with it, if you separate all the components out its actually a good price.
Well we started with a Glock so lets finish with one… at number 10 this is the Glock 17 co2 air pistol, with a threaded barrel ready for your silencer! The original version of the famed Glock 17 holds an important place in many weapons collections. For those who want to share the excitement of owning a Glock, this over-the-counter co2 version is the perfect solution.
