Our take: Maruzen is a legendary name in the Airsoft world, but hunting down a brand new Maruzen pistol has always proved difficult due to the fact that traditionally, Maruzen Airsoft models were only imported into the United States in extremely-small quantities and have ended up in the hands of only the most avid collectors due to their extremely high prices. Additionally, any 'fully-marked' versions bearing full trademarks (Walther, in this case) were unlicensed and therefore deemed non-legal for import.
Fast forward to today, and Umarex USA has released this fully licensed Walther P99, manufactured by Maruzen in Japan with full trademarks intact. It is one of the most beautifully-crafted Airsoft gas pistols we've ever had the pleasure of handling, and stays true to its real-steel counterpart with an authentic weight, and ultra high-quality build materials.
Semi-automatic firing means that you can shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger. Because it is powered by green gas (or propane if you opt for a propane adapter), this Walther P99 packs quite a mean punch and is a knock-out in terms of performance. It shoots at 300-340 FPS with 0.20g BBs, with a smooth-bore metallic barrel to deliver extremely accurate shots. The fixed slide eliminates recoil of any kind so though the pistol is semi-automatic, your accuracy is undeterred by recoil (which is non-existent on this model). It combines both power and accuracy to deliver a one-of-a-kind shooting experience.
The P99 is quality constructed, and manufactured in Japan by Maruzen (under license by Walther/Umarex). So whether you're a P99-enthusiast or just an avid Airsofter with a keen eye for an amazing gun at an amazing price, this pistol is definitely the way to go for the discerning Airsoft buyer who demands the very best in a sidearm.
