Type: Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol. Manufacturer: Distributed by Umarex. Model:Glock 19. Materials: Metal & Polymer. Weight: 1.6 pounds (725 grams). Barrel: Metal Non-rifled. Propulsion: CO2 x 1. Action: Semi auto non-blowback, double action only trigger. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 16 round drop out metal stick magazine. FPS: Claimed 410.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Glock 19 Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol is double action only and has that inner barrel that protrudes out of the barrel external barrel thing that happens. You see this on many lower cost CO2 BB pistols. I believe the barrel is actually part of the action and kind of acts like the hammer hitting the valve after it has allowed a BB to enter the break area. The double action trigger is a bit long but not overly heavy and does have a working trigger safety on it.
Accuracy: At this point I have not shot the Umarex Glock 19 Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol so I can only quote what Umarex is saying in terms of FP2 which is 410. That's sounds reasonable and based on other similar guns like this the Umarex Glock 19 Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol should get lots of shots out of a CO2 and produce decent shot groupings on target. We will find out when I get another Chronograph for my Field Test Shooting Videos.
Build Quality: TheUmarex Glock 19 Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol is really well made. It's super solid at 1.6 pounds and feels in the hand like a real Glock would. Fit and finish are very good and you are going to find lots of metal parts where they would be and need to be on this air pistol.
Realism: The Umarex Glock 19 Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol absolutely looks the part, sitting on the table and even holding it in your hand you are going to think it's the real deal. When you start trying to cycle the slide and eject the magazine is when you are going to quickly realize this is not a 9mm Glock 19 but rather a replica 4.5mm Steel BB version. I am hoping that down the road Umarex and Glock will come out with a full blowback and full metal drop out magazine version? Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.
Great weight and feel to it, build quality seems really good.
Really nice looking replica of the original Glock 19.
Fully Glock licensed.
Easy to see white dot sights front and back.
Working trigger safety.
Recessed barrel for added realism.
Accessory rail for adding a laser or tactical light.
Stick magazine but plate gives the elusion of a full size magazine.
Warning instruction are nice and discreet under trigger guard
So far the only Glock official licensed 4.5mm Steel BB pistol.
Not bad feeling double action only trigger, perhaps a bit long.
410 fps is nice and strong.
Fixed slide with no blowback action.
Has a stick magazine rather than a full size magazine.
Sight are non-adjustable which is common with low cost airguns like this one.
Would have liked to have seen more pristine packaging from Glock.
I know this version of the Umarex Glock 19 Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistol is not exactly what we where all hoping for... That said we are making progress. Glock actually licensed there name out to an Airgun manufacturer and is working with them to come out with even better future versions and models so be happy with what we do have and pick one of these first generation Umarex Glock 19 Non-blowback CO2 BB Pistols, after all this is history in the making and I know I want to own the first ever officially licensed Glock BB Pistol, don't you for under $100?
What some of you may not think about is all the stuff that goes behind the scenes when a YouTube video is being made. It's a lot more than simply grabbing a camera and saying what's on your mind although that can work sometimes.
Most of the time multiple cameras are used, tripods and special lighting are important and even how you record the audio source can make a huge difference as to the sound and what people hear in your final video.
With all that said I am always looking for a new way to help me out with the quality of my video recording and production. How can I make things look better or more interesting, how can I improve the sound quality and clarity of my videos?
Moving on now to a new video product, I have been wanting to get a Drone to capture more interesting video that I can shoot from multiple viewing angles and also be able to have a moving camera while I shoot outdoors videos. The problem is they can be kind of expensive for anything decent, because of this, so far I have not been able to justify bitting the bullet and buying a drone. That was until I saw a great deal on the Yuneec Breeze 4k Selfie Drone at my local Best buy for half price ($249 CAN) What a deal!
Anyways, watch me fumble around while I try to figure things out with my Yuneec Breeze 4k Selfie Drone for the first time, there is always a learning curve when you get something new but I do hope to be able to utilize both of these new products in upcoming videos for everyone.
Accuracy: So far I have only played around with the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle but I can say it feels pretty good and seems to hit what I aim at even when in full auto mode which does rock the gun a bit. Don;t expect full auto mode to be the most accurate but it sure is fun and with all those BB's coming out the barrel at 1400 rounds per minute you're probably going to hit what ever your shooting at. Because of the blowback operation you will get a little over 400 fps which is totally fine for an action shooter like this.
Build Quality: The Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle is well made all around. Weighing in at 6.5 pounds it feel solid and well built. There is a lot of metal going on inside and out of this rifle but keep in mind the top and bottom receiver are plastic but metal parts are where they need to be like in the internals, pretty much all the working parts are metal, the magazine is full metal, the buffer tub is metal and of course the barrel is metal.
Realism: The Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle is about as real as you are going to get in a CO2 Blowback M4 styled Airgun. You can even take it apart into the top and bottom receivers like the real steal version. The blowback action gives you some recoil but more importantly offers a true single action trigger and of course the full auto ability we all love. Almost all the working parts work like they would on a real M4 other than the forward assist which is moulded into the receiver.
Most realistic working M4/AR 4.5mm BB Rifle out there right now.
Full blowback operation with both semi and full auto shooting, can feel the blowback operation rocking the gun.
Great weight and feel to it.
Almost everything works exactly like there pal steel version. (Charging handle, dust cover, bolt release, magazine release, selector switch…)
Duel CO2 full metal drop out magazine that holds 4.5mm steel BB’s as well.
Adjustable pop-up iron sights.
Lots of rails of mounting additional cool hardware.
Included adjustable foregrip.
Muzzle cap looks cool too!
Receiver is plastic but well made and does not compromise feel or weight since there is lots of metal throughout this gun.
Rear Buttstock is not compatible with the AR platform.
This gun is literally too much fun…
If you haven't figured it out already I love the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle and I know anyone that picks one up will love theirs too! I just wish we had them in our Replica Airguns Store but for now we are not Crosman distributers :( We do have some other nice M4/AR styled BB rifles like the HellBoy which I may put head to head against the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle at some point even though they are very different in how they operate and their pros and cons.
My YouTube Table Top Video of the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle:
Some more stuff came in and I just had to show it off before moving on with the reviews. I know you're going to like it so here we go again...
First off the super anticipate Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol has arrived and is now available in our Canada and US online Replica Airgun Stores so get yours while we still have them, if we still have them? No this version is not a blowback or even working slide version and yes it has the dreaded stick mag! That all said the Umarex Glock 19 CO2 BB Pistol feels really solid and well made and heck it's the first licensed Airgun Glock ever so it's a good start. Umarex has said that more elaborate blowback versions will be coming out down the road. There are full blowback Airsoft version licensed by Umarex but the FPS is too slow right now for us to import them into Canada, hopefully there is a fix for this at some point...
Some other very cool news, we are now selling KWA Airsoft Guns, I have been a big fan of KWA for a long time and enjoy visiting their booth at SHOT Show, they have excellent high quality detailed Airsoft guns and carry a great combination of Blowback and AEG Airsoft Guns. Once I get through my Crosman and Gletcher reviews I will focus on showcasing the new KWA lineup we are selling.
When it comes to accuracy, match grade pellet pistols are going o be your best bet, not always the most powerful but they are sure good at driving pellets down range with super small groupings. The Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol is no exception to this statement and considering all that it offers it is fairly reasonably price for a match grade pellet pistol of this caliber.
Right off the bat I have to admit that my Chrony Chronograph stopped working, all I get is gibberish on the screen (Strike two for Chrony!). So I was not able to get any personal Chronograph results even though I even tried using my Airsoft Chronograph without success :( I did however watch a few other Youtube Video reviews where users tested out the FPS using a similar Chronograph and the Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol should get right around 390 fps using 7 grain lead pellets, this is close to the 400 fps claimed velocity.
Now for my shooting results that I was able to deliver on... I shot about 6-7 rounds downrange on a fresh paper target setup around 30 feet away. Sitting with a sandbag up front for stability, my Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol shot 6 out of the 7 rounds all in one hole that stretched out to about 1/4 of an inch. I did get one flyer that extended the grouping to about an inch, but this gun is a accurate no doubt even with my limited shooting skills.
The Trigger, sights and even the pistol grip on the Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol are fully adjustable so you can setup your Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol pretty much any way you like but it is made for a left handed shooter, at least the one I had tested out. The trigger is very light weigth out of the box and should be good to go for most people. It's also nice that you only need one pump for full power which saves you a bit of time in-between shots. All in the Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol is a great well priced match grade target pistol ready to drive virtually anything you point it at!
So how did the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle do? Unfortunately my Chrony Chronograph bit the dust, even though it I just bought it well I guess we are going back 2 years ago but still my luck with the Chrony Chronographs has not been good :( I thought it was perhaps the battery but when I switched it out for a new one I still got the same gibberish on screen!
So I resorted to using my Airsoft Chronograph which is not ideal for testing our steel BB's and or Lead Pellets. I did get some results which gave me a three shot average of 437 feet per second, this was after shooting off a full magazine and I was having some slight CO2 leakage with my Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle? Perhaps a bad valve or seal?
When I was playing around with m y Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle outside shooting clay pigeons at a variety of distances I found it to be pretty accurate finding my targets most of the time even out to 50 feet or more. So was not too surprised when I shot a nice 1 inch 10 round grouping using a mounted red dot scope to help a little bit.
All in all the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a pretty slick Replica Rifle to own, I will be comparing it to the Crosman DPMS SBR now that one has arrived, they both have pros and cons so it will be interesting to see which one is going to be my favorite at the end of the day but I can say if you can own both then go for it! And don't forget to watch my Table Top Review for the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle where I go into some more detail and show you around up close.
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a double action only trigger since there is no blowback action to set the trigger in single action mode. So it will be a bit heavier than a true single action trigger. That said the trigger is not bad at all and can be activated very quickly for tons of fast action shooting or at least until your 18 rounds are all gone :) I would say the trigger pull is between light and medium with a medium pull length and not that much take-up at the beginning.
Accuracy: So far I have only played around with the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle shooting at clay pigeons from various distances and it was surprisingly accurate for me off hand shooting like this. I could easily hit a clay pigeon from about 50 feet away with most shots. Watch my "Having Fun with the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle" video if you want to see how it did. In terms of velocity, I have seen other reviews that show it getting pretty close the 495 fps claimed so until I do my actual Field Test Shooting Video we will have to go on this info.
Build Quality: The Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is made in China, some people will not like that but I found it to be very well built in general, fit and finish are as good if not better than any Taiwanese airgun I have reviewed so quality control in the factory must be good. You are going to find metal parts where you would expect them to be on a real M4 (AR) like the receiver, barrel, buffer tube, magazine, carry handle, forward assist, charging handle, sling mounts, safety and magazine release. Plastic parts are going to be the rear stock, hand guard, and pistol grip.
Realism: The Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a 1 to 1 replica of the M4 or AR platform and even has some interchangeable parts with real AR or M4 like the hand guard and rear stock. You can even take this gun down into the two halves, upper and lower which makes for barrel cleaning or BB jam removal pretty easy. Even though there is no blowback action or internal bolt, you can pull the charging handle back which opens the dust cover just like the real deal. Other working moving parts are the magazine release, selector switch, forward assist and adjustable rear stock.
Great to have another full size Rifle available to purchase in a BB gun version.
Metal where it is expected and good overall weight. (Metal receiver, barrel, magazine)
Can be field stripped, carry handle is removable.
Can swap out hand guard and rear stock with real steel AR parts.
Full size drop out metal magazine that holds the BBs and CO2.
Great looking replica of the real steel M4 AR, operation and weight.
Variety of sling mount hook in points for varies styles of slings.
Price point is reasonable for this type of full size mostly metal BB rifle.
Semi auto and double action only trigger only.
Magazine only holds 18 rounds and a single CO2.
No blowback operation.
I think the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a super addition to the replica rifle lineup. I know we all wish it had blowback operation and shot in full auto mode too but there are trade-offs here and you can still have boat loads of fun shooting the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle even in semi auto only mode. The fact that it does not have blowback allows for some generous fps velocity and more shots per CO2. It looks really great, feels really great and shoots really great all in a mostly metal build which is what everyone has been asking for and at a reasonable price. I think the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a total winner and recommend it 100%. You will not be disappointed!
It's been a while since I made a just for fun shooting video, especially a multi-camera kinda tactical shooting video. Well the weather was nice, I had the perfect CO2 Air Rifle for the job, the Air Venturi HellBoy, and I need to keep things simple since I am in contest prep for a fitness show I am doing this weekend and being so low on calories and high on activity messes with the brain a little bit which makes it hard to focus.
This all made for the perfect opportunity to get outside the the Replica Airguns indoor Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range and shoot my Air Venturi HellBoy CO2 BB M4 at some different targets.
To make this video as interesting as possible I have several cameras setup to capture the action from multiple angles. So watch me have some outdoor fun with the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle as I slay as many clay pigeons as I can...
In this table top preview video I take a look at three new products from Air venture that we are now carying in our Online Replica Airguns Store.
First off is yet another rebranded KWC 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, this time with John Wayne Licensing in the classic 1911 A1 version with a distressed look. What can I say, people just can't get enough of these KWC 1911's and with all the choices out there you are sure to find something you like!
Last up but perhaps the most unique product from Air Venture is the HellBoy CO2 BB Firing M4 Air Rifle. The Air Venturi HellBoy has an all metal receiver, magazine, carry handle, buffer tube and barrel with only plastic used for the stock and fore grip which is to be expected. The Air Venturi HellBoy shoot in semi auto only with a double action style trigger and does not have blowback action. You can expect to get 18 4.5mm Steel BB's in the all metal magazine that holds the CO2 as well and a top velocity of 495 fps. Did I mention you can fully field strip the Air Venturi HellBoy?
Another Field Test Shooting video coming to you this week from the Replica Airgun Sea Can Indoor Airgun Range! Today I test out the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol to see what kind of real world velocity it gets and how accurate it is shooting a rapper target form about 30 feet away.
Starting with my Chronograph velocity results, the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is really powerful! It shot right up to and just over 500 fps using a brand new CO2 with .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's. The temperature was decent right around the mid 20's Celsius which is not too hot or too cold.The actual 5 shot average was 497 fps with the fastest shot hitting 503 fps and the slowest hitting 492 fps so all pretty close in velocity.
Next I placed 10 rounds down range at my paper target using a rested seated shooting position (Sand bag up front and seated on chair in the back). I did find the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol shot a bit high but windage was well centered. My 10 shot grouping produced about 1.5 inch fairly tight group with one outlier that came out a bit.
Overall the KWC CQBP M45 A1 CO2 Airsoft Pistol is a pretty well rounded Airsoft 1911, it's mostly metal with good weight, has lots of power, maybe even too much for anything close range, produced some decent accuracy and it isn't going to set you back too much at the end of the day. Just be aware that because it is a none blowback pistol it does only shoot in double action which is not typical of most 1911 pistols.
Let's keep it short and simple and get right to my results. My five shot Chronic Testing to find out the real world velocity for the Gletcher TT-A Tokarev CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol shooting 5 rounds of .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's with a brand new CO2 resulted in an average of 434 fps, not bad at all for a Blowback Airsoft Pistol!
For some reason I thought the Gletcher TT-A Tokarev CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol was shooting high so I originally time my first 10 shots at the bottom ring on my paper target and pretty much missed the target with every shot. My second go around aiming dead center on the target setup 30 feet away was much better resulting in 9 out of the 10 shots hitting all within about 3 inches of each other pretty well centered but just a tad bit low. Respectable for sure!
The Gletcher TT-A Tokarev CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol blowback is fairly heavy and it also has a fair mount of power for a CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol so you may want to use it more in an outdoor setting where you are not so close up and personal. The double action trigger is a little bit heavy but not bad and easy enough to get shots off quickly. Not a bad pistol overall and worth considering.
The Sig Sauer We the People 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol is really simply another KWC rebranded and license 1911 and I have already made a tone of videos on the KWC 1911 for guns like the Cybergun Tanfoglio Witness 1911, Swiss Arms 1911, several Umarex KWC 1911 rebrands and a bunch of Cybergun Rail Gun versions. So why make another Field Test Shooting video? Well Why not and at the end of the day the KWC 1911 BB / Airsoft Pistol has been one of our top sellers over the last several years for the time when it came out.
Getting back to the Sig Sauer We the People 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Field. It really is a beauty and I think it's the only one with metal grips! So how did it shoot? In terms of Velocity it shot just like all the other KWC 1911 Co2 Blowback BB pistols and averaged right around 320 fps, not super fast but perfectly fines for an action pop can plinker. I was using a brand new CO2 and did place 5 shots through my Chronograph of this test result. The temperature in my indoor shooting Sea Can Airgun Range was about 17 degrees Celsius or 63 degrees Fahrenheit.
When it came to accuracy these KWC 1911's usually get anywhere from a 2-4 inch 10 round grouping and the Sig Sauer We the People 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol was no excepting shooting about a 4 inch group. My first 4 rounds did all hit the 1.5 inch bullseye so perhaps the following 6 where on me :) Even so a 4 inch grouping at 30 feet back is good enough to punch holes in pop cans all day long.
I do really like the Sig Sauer We the People 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, it's perhaps one of the most unique and eye catching of the bunch with its distressed and black highlight features. The white dot sights, metal star pistol grips and skeletonize trigger are also great touches. If you can find a Sig Sauer We the People 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in your area for sure pick on up, we also have a tone of other version of the KWC 1911 CO2 Blowback Airgun in Steel BB and Plastic Airsoft over in our Replica Airgun Online Canada and US Stores...
For my velocity testing I placed 5 rounds through my Chrony Chronograph using a brand new Sig Sauer CO2 along with Sigs Match Ballistic Alloy 5.25 grain pellets. This was the same setup when I performed the Sig Sauer ASP P320 testing. The Sig Sauer X-Five ASP CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol shot an average of 359 fps which was lower than my testing of the Sig Sauer ASP P320 as it shot an average of 413 fps. I am not sure why there was such a difference since both guns use similar internal mechanics but I have a feeling the CO2 may not have been pierced fully since some of the shots seemed to be weaker than others and CO2 output did not seem consistent even causing the blowback action to not fully cycle on a couple of shots.
Moving onto accuracy, my Sig Sauer ASP P320 shooting an 8 round group got around a 2 inch spread. I was able to get a tighter 1.5 inch grouping with my Sig Sauer X-Five ASP CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol and this was with 10 shots rather than 8 so the Sig Sauer X-Five ASP CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol may have shot a bit slower but it did seem to be a little bit tighter in terms of accuracy. The Sig Sauer X-Five ASP CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol was shooting a bit low and to the left for me in my accuracy testing but the rear sight is fully adjustable for windage and elevation so this can be easily corrected.
I strongly feel something did not go right when the CO2 was pierced using Sigs proprietary Cantilever Easy CO2 Loading system. There is only one way to do it so I know it was not human error in this case. perhaps the Sig Sauer X-Five ASP CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol needs a little bit of break in time is all?
Overall the Sig Sauer X-Five ASP CO2 Blowback Pellet Pistol is a really well made and fun gun gun to shoot. I love the high capacity belt fed magazine with is not heavy on the trigger at all like some other guns. The fully adjustable rear sight is something you don't often see on CO2 blowback action shooters so hopefully this is a new trend?
In this Field Test Shooting Review I put the KWC M40 Extended Barrel CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol through my typical Sea Can shooting tests to see what the real world velocity and accuracy are. I made sure i had a brand new 12 gram CO2 in the gun and I used .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's for the entire test. The temperature was around 17 degrees Celsius which is not too hot or too cold.
Moving on to the accuracy portion this indoor Sea Can Field Test I setup a clean paper target 30 feet down range and placed 10 shots into it using a rested and seated shooting position. The grouping was a bit all over the place but the bulk of the roods did hit pretty close to the center of the target in about a 3-4 inch grouping. 2 of the shots did go a bit high on me. I feel that perhaps because of the higher velocity that heavier Airsoft BB's may perform better in the KWC M40 Extended Barrel CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol.
The Umarex Strike Point is a lot like the Crosman series of bolt action multi-pump pellet shooters at least in design. Sure it has a more futuristic and plastic build to it but mechanically it works pretty much the same as the Crosman Bolt Action Multi-pump Pellet Pistols. What I really wanted to know is will the Umarex Strike Point .22 Caliber Pellet Pistol perform as good?
Umarex states that you can pump the Umarex Strike Point .22 Caliber Pellet Pistol 10 times maximum so that's what I will did for my Feet Per Second Testing and the Umarex Strike Point .22 Caliber Pellet Pistol was very consistent producing a 427 fps 3 shot string using fairly heavy 14.3 grain lead pellets. Of course lighter alloy pellets should go right up to the claimed 500 fps. I also tested out a 5 pump shot to see what kind of velocity I would get since you don't always need maximum power for basic plinking and target shooting. The velocity did drop as expected but not that much getting 356 fps which is plenty fast for all intents and purposes.
Moving on to my Target accuracy testing, I placed 6 shot in total on my paper target setup 30 feet down range using a rested and seated shooting position. My first 4 shots made a single half inch hole but then my shooting table seemed to move on my 5th and 6th shot making me use a slightly different hold and I believe this caused these 5th and 6th shots to drop a bit. Based on my first 4 shots I expect the Umarex Strike Point .22 Caliber Pellet Pistol to shoot consistent half inch groupings from 30 feet away especially once you get use to the trigger and sights. The shots where all a bit low but this is not a problem since the rear sight on the Umarex Strike Point .22 Caliber Pellet Pistol is adjustable for windage and elevation.
The two pistols I received from Sig are the Sig Sauer X-Five ASP CO2 B blowback Pellet Pistol and the We the People 1911 Co2 Blowback BB Pistol. Sig was also kind enough to send me out some of their 12 gram CO2 and Match Ballistic Alloy Pellets to use with these Airguns.

Watch my full Unboxing Video for the Sig Sauer X-Five ASP and We the People 1911 Airguns:
I have been wanting to get outside and test out the Pocket Shot Slingshot since I was not confident in my skills and didn't want to shoot inside the See Can Indoor Shooting Range. Well today was the day and the weather was pretty much perfect, just a little bit overcast but still warm enough for some shorts and a light shirt, my kind of weather!
The overcast lighting helped me get some good Chronograph FPS readings for the 1/4 inch and 3/8 inch Steel Ball ammo I was using for my testing. The 1/4 inch Steel Ball was around 16 grain and I was able to get an FPS reading of around 270 feet per second, this gave me a foot pound energy of 2.66 foot pounds using the 1/4 inch Steel Ammo.
Stepping up to the heavier 3/8 inch Steel Ball Ammo, the FPS did drop a bit down to about 244 feet per second. Since the 3/8 inch Steel Ball are heavier at almost 55 grain, the Foot Pound energy went up to just over 7 foot pounds so more than double the energy of the 1/4 inch Steel Ball.
In terms of accuracy, shooting any Slingshot setup is going to come down mainly to the person using it and I am by no means an avid Slingshot user. That said I was able to hit several of the targets I setup about 20-25 feet away with my Pocket Shot Slingshot, some as small as a few inches in diameter so I was pleased with myself for at least hitting something on camera for you all :)
Todays Video Review is really something different from Replica Airguns but I felt that it might be something that our viewers and customers would find interesting and perhaps consider picking up something like this for themselves down the road? So make sure to let me know what you think and if I get enough positive feedback I'll take a look at getting some of these mini replica rifles in our online store.
The product I am reviewing today are there 1/3 scale replica rifles from Goat Guns. The M4A1, the AK47 and the Tommy Gun. They are non-firing highly detailed mini versions of the real steel guns they are models of. You even build them nearly the same since they come in a kit. All the metal parts you would find on the real steel version are metal in the Goat Guns replicas. You will even find working bolts and triggers, removable magazines, adjustable sights and they even include three small metals bullets you can load into the magazine.
If you're a gun person I'm pretty sure you will die these highly detailed miniature non-firing replica rifles from Goat Guns and the price is really not that bad considering what you get, only about $30-$40 US.
