Got this last week. This week-end's flier has it on for 50.00 off price at Cabela's...

Image

Triple white dot sight system. I still shoot better with +2.75 readers.

Image

Dual ended magazine system with 8 shots on each end.
This pistol is a blow back pellet gun. It bleeds CO-2 off the firing cycle to run the slide back, and cock the hammer. The trigger advances a cam that rotates the magazine "cylinder" for each shot in both S/A and D/A. As such, the trigger is a bit on the weighty, mushy side. Nothing insurmountable though... the gun gun can be shot reasonably well at 5-7 paces.
Image

I put 48 of the 7.9 grain Crosman field target domed pellets through this can from 5 and 7 paces. Every pellet connected with the can, so I really can't complain. As can be expected, this pistol is a bit of a gas hog. You know your gas is just about gone when the blow-back stops operating....

Sights are fixed, and the gun shoots quite low off of them. I am going to try some 10.1 grain pellets on the next session and see if I can't bring the p.o.i. up a bit.

I think this replica would be great for some relatively slow speed drill practice.
It makes a great plinker.

Performance is about as expected. Velocity ranges over a Crosman CO-2 12 gram caplet are from about 430 to 111 fps. For the sake of consistency, I would run this pistol to 40 pellets, and then dump the gas and go to a new caplet...

Image

Here it is with one of my old non-blow-back stand-by's... the Beretta 92 - F.
The Beretta is the more consistent shooter, especially over the chronograph...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

When you first mentioned blow back action, I figured it was a sneaky way for them to sell more CO2. Looks very realistic though. SW

Some of them want to shoot. :bigrin:

Unfortunately, the Sig doesn't appear to be much more than a close range can plinker... Until I can find a pellet that it likes.

There are others in the stable that actually do want to shoot- some more than others.

The Beretta pictured above is a prime example of this.

Image

A mix of various pellets, 24 shots total, all landed on the target at 7 yards. For me, off-hand, that is great shooting.

Image

Here is an example of why I would not want to be hit by one of these pistols. 7.9 grain Crosman tear drop point embedded it's self in the head of a spent 12 ga. hull at 15 yds with the Beretta. Note how the pellet expanded over it's skirt. Approx 425 fps.... That Beretta is still the go-to for me on tiny targets at above normal pistol ranges.

Image

S&W 586-6" at 7 yds. Full ten shot cylinder went into 2 1/2". These are actually rifle weight match pellets. For me off-hand, that is good shooting.

Image

Here's the 586 again, this time with true match pistol pellets aboard. The lower 4 shots were actually the fouling of the previous rifle match pellets being shot out of the bore. Final 6 shots went into about .75", which is damn fine shooting for my off-hand. I have to order in some more of these. I'll probably have to get them on-line. It's been a lot of years since I've seen them available locally.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
