In 2021, APS cleared another big milestone in the history of the organization by completing 20 years since its establishment. Only with the support of their clients and customers who trusted them, your requests, demands and feedbacks have pushed them to go a long way and improve their business to make it so great. In celebration of this anniversary, they can't thank you enough for your support. On this auspicious occasion, APS gladly announces a limited edition pistol 20th Anniversary Bumblebee XX.
Features of the Bumblebee XX Pistol: -Full CNC Brand New 20th Anniversary Billet Slide
The Bumblebee XX comes with their special 20th Anniversary billet slide. It has XX (Roman Number 20) marked on the slide serrations. The Full CNC cuts on the top and sides reduce the overall weight. The lighter the slide, the faster it can cycle. Their precision 4-axis CNC-cut slide guarantees perfection in every slide they make.
-Two Tone Gloss / Matte Finish One One Slide
When you look carefully at the slide, you will see the special two tone glossy / matte finish on the surface. This finish has to be done by CNC and special polishing that can only be done at factory level.
The Bumblebee XX comes with a hand-stippled grip. The dot pattern stippling was done by experience gunsmiths in the APS factory. The stippled surface give you better control and grip on your pistol when shooting.
The barrel, mag release, slide release, and safety button are all changed to gold from a black pistol. This strong contrast helps this limited edition pistol stand out from others.
APS would like to express their gratitude for your support during their 20 years in business. They could not have reached this far without your support. This 20th Anniversary limited edition pistol shows their appreciation and they will continue to provide their friends with nothing less than the best.

(Write a review) "Got this out of a BOA...imo not a bad start for a sidearm. Trigger is responsive and the blowback feels good. .25s are solid lines once you dial in the hop-up. The weight of the gun is great, not too light not too heavy. Sight line between the front and rear sights are mildly improved by the fiber optic front sight... wish the back sights also were fiber optic. No biggie.
Mags are a new experience with how they load the 12g Co2 cartridges. Be careful when putting the screws on, do the trick of unscrewing until you hear/feel the threads slid into the threading before tightening after you put the Co2 cartridge in to avoid stripping the threads. The snow-man tool given to unscrew the screw caps is handy, try not to lose it.
The box includes phelt stickers (best way to describe) for the extended mag so it does not wiggle around in the handle too much. Between the mags, you will get 2-3 reloads on the normal mag, solid 2 on the extended mag.
Downside to this is the grip under the trigger guard, either file it down or wrap some electrical/athletic tape. Pretty grippy for those of you who have sweaty hands, ideal for hot weather use. A little bummed that the interior of soft-shell holsters would fray as a result of the grip on the handle. If you look past that, the Bumblebee is a solid sidearm.
*Mags (standard and extended) are readily available at the time of this review. "I wish I could go back and edit my review; but here we are with an updated review. Between my last review and now I bought a chrono so I got FPS and played with it on a local field.
Cartridge and BB weight/FPS:
-Crosman 12g Co2 cartridges
-.25g BBs / 330 - 345 FPS.
I adjusted the hop-up and worked flawlessly. The Co2 lasted about 3 and a half mags worth of shots. It was a little colder that day. In my tests, the extended mag was about half that. There were no misfeeds of any sort. I only used one Co2 cartridge for a day of play in the 23rd mag.
I even dropped the gun in some snow and it picked up dirt but still worked.
I applied a few drops of high concentration silicon oil on the threads of the end cap and a little bit on the inside of the end cap where the silver piercing piece is. I recommend getting some and doing that, and a drop where the slide and lower receiver meet. Rack the slide a few times to spread the oil.
When you use the silver piercing part, you rotate it until you cannot then do about 3/4 to a full turn back. You will hear a short hiss then nothing. Do not fret; gas is not leaking it is flowing. "Got this in a BOA. Let's get down to it.
If your hands have more slip than a thin sheet of black ice covered with Mario Kart banana peels dashed with slick oil, this handgun is for you. The grip itself feels coarser than 40 grit sandpaper.
FPS: I did not get the chance to shoot this yet, HOWEVER from what I have noticed, Evike's FPS measurements have been off by over 20 FPS (maybe they lubricate the barrels for FPS tests idk) so look for this shooting 280 to 330 FPS, which when averaged out is 305 FPS.
Lets get the pros, cons and maintenance:
-One super machined pistol. It is the crossover of the Glock and Smith & Wesson Performance Center pistols. They remove weight on the slide where it is unnecessary and add cool decals on the barrel.
-SUPER grippy. Might be "over-grippified" if that makes sense (Also can be a con). The Taurus G3C has one of the most texturized grips on the firearms market, which people really love. This surpasses that. A lot.
-It is basically a Glock, but cooler.
-Comes with an extra O-ring (Larger one).
-Comes with three mini-felt strips to apply to extended stick mags to reduce wobble. Very cool and much appreciated.
-Trigger is snappy. There is little distance to pull to reach the wall and an impressive response when you break it. Incredibly satisfying.
-Adjustable rear sights
-Hop-Up unit (see "Cons" about the manual). It is adjustable and when you adjust it to your preference it feels like it will not move for a while.
-Ambidextrous safety switch. It is in an odd place, but if you have a PROPER grip on this, your support hand's thumb should reach it no problem.
-Comes with two mags: 23 rd and 48rd.
-The frame is probably on par with real firearm frame construction. It is an extremely durable polymer.
-CO2 lasts about 4 mags for the 23rd magazines (had to look that up).
-Super stippled grip (Could be a pro if you have the aforementioned oil-slicked black ice type hands). Wear gloves or file the grip down a bit.
-They put their super-stippled grip on the underside of the trigger guard, where your support hand's index finger goes. That is dumb... in my opinion. File it down.
-The QR code that leads to the APS manuals page does not show this model's manual. To access the hop-up, knock out the retention pin and pull the slide forward. Then you can access the hop-up.
All in all, a cool airsoft pistol. If you want a Glock but cannot find the extra mags and it is a pain to get the model you want, just get this. Comes with two mags, ergonomically a Glock, there is 23 rd mag availability as of 1/25/22. 48 rd mags are sold at at the moment. Read More Reviews Write a Review
