Description: The Umarex H&K P30 AEP Airsoft Gun is mostly comprised of plastic. This airsoft pistol is powered by four AAA batteries, which is installed in the grip. This model features a grip safety, which is not a feature of the real P30 firearm, but it is a welcome addition to a entry level gun designed for beginners. The plastic slide cycles realistically, along with a spring loaded hammer. A switch located in the trigger guard allows you to change the firing modes between semi automatic and fully automatic. Keep in mind that this product is not skirmish worthy, but is a great prop for film/movies or as a decorative set piece.
I received this gun around December of 2013 and it still holds up nicely. The FPS leaves a little to be desired but it still works effectively. I got this gun because I rarely use my side arm and I didn't need a 100$ Co2 pistol and this prevents the need for having to stock up on Co2 or gas. It also removes the need to cock before each shot like you would need for a springer. So it found a little niche in my arsenal.
The mags are a bit weird. They are banana shaped and slide in next to the battery compartment. Also the 'blowback' is mechanical and is very loud. It moves the slide slowly so its rather unrealistic as well. It was a cool design attempt but rather unnecessary.
The semi is preferable over the full auto as you can fire quicker semi than you can full auto. The full auto is somewhat pointless but still a fun feature. There is no safety switch on this gun but there is a tab you squeeze on the handle. If this tab is not pressed down, the gun will not fire. A unique design but not sure I like it too much.
Any one who is looking for a pistol better than a springer but not wanting to worry about Co2 or an expensive sidearm, I recommend this.
Allows for something better than a spring pistol without having to worry about Co2 alternatives.
Comes with 2 mags
2 firing modes
Awkward safety design
unrealistic and loud 'blowback'

Fun to plink around with I bought it as a backup to my back up in case they go down.
Cheap easy to use no gas or co2 neccesary.
Horrible range and rate of fire
