First off, this gun is not made by Umarex. They are nothing more than the importer. Neither is it made by HK; it is, however, built with HK specs. This gun is actually made by the legendary Carl Walther Arms. It's rock solid, well built, and insane fun to shoot. It wouldn't be my go to gun for the zombie apocalypse, but since it's .22lr, its my go to gun for anything else. Grab it, fire it, and smile.
