    Picked up one of these today. Heading to the range tomorrow. Anyone else have one? Thoughts?

    Is this the Umarex manufactured model?

    It's actually manufactured by Walther in Germany. It's imported by Umarex. It's actually a good quality firearm. I did my research and was looking at a couple other options. The Ruger SR22 in particular, but it felt like a toy in my hand.

    Jeff Quinn over at gunblast.com did a nice review with a video if you'd like to see it.

    Walther was what I was thinking of!
    Seem to have very good reviews!
