SHOT Show 2017 Crosman Interview

Enjoy my latest SHOT Show Interview with Jesse Caster from Crosman. Jesse shows me Crosman’s latest old west single action revolver, the Remington 1875 which shares a lot with the super popular Colt Single Action Army revolvers. Jesse also goes over some new airgun pistols with me, a CO2 powered non blowback 1 to 1 replica of the Remington RP45, a very interesting single shot spring piston “Glock-ish looking pistol called the PSM45. And last but not least, Crosman has now got on the Beretta / Taurus bandwagon and added the PFAM98 to their lineup.

Crosman’s new Remington 1875 should be a welcome addition for anyone looking to add something new to their Old West Airgun lineup. The Crosman Remington 1875 like the Colt Single Action Army Revolver is shell loading, shoots in single action only and has that super slick ratcheting cylinder we all love. The Crosman Remington 1875 shoots both .177 caliber pellets and 4.5 mm steel BB’s from its smooth bore barrel, but Jesse has gone on record to claim that the pellets work well and shoots pellets and BB’s accurately at ranges typical for this type of Airgun.

Another Remington Licensed Airgun from Crosman this year is the Remington PR45. The PR45 is a 1 to 1 replica of the real steal Remington RP45 but in a CO2 non-blowback 4.5mm BB shooting version. The Crosman PR45 has a metal slide and polymer frame with a drop out all metal stick magazine. Some other notable features for the Crosman PR45 are a working trigger safety and white dot sights front and back.

If you are looking for something a little different from Crosman this year then checkout the single shot spring piston PSM45. This super affordable air pistol kind of looks "similar" to a Glock and lord knows how many times I get asked what is available in an airgun that resembles a Glock. The Crosman PSM45 is not going to win any fps awards (shoots around 200 fps), but there is no need to buy any CO2 and you can shoot this airgun in virtually any temperature for only the cost of steel BB’s. The frame and slide on the Crosman PSM45 are plastic but it does have decent weight do some internal metal parts and an unexpected full metal full size drop out magazine.

Crosman this year is adding a Beretta/Taurus full metal and full blowback CO2 BB Pistol to their product lineup. You may have already guessed it, it’s essentially a KWC Beretta / Taurus which really isn’t a bad thing since the KWC Blowback Beretta / Taurus has been very popular with replica airguners. A nice little treat with the Crosman PFAM98 Beretta / Taurus is that right out of the box it shoots in both semi and full auto using the ambidextrous selector safety switch.

SHOT Show 2017 ASG Interview

Another SHOT Show 2017 interview video, this interview is with Bob Li from ASG (Action Sport Games), Bob shares with me some updates to the super popular Dan Wesson 715 along with the reintroduced EVO Scorpion Inferno powered Airsoft Rifle. Bob finishes up with a new X9 Classic which is a Beretta M9 in 4.5mm Steel BB.

You may have thought the Dan Wesson 715 was already pretty much perfect as is so what could ASG to make it even better? How about different barrel lengths. ASG has introduce the Dan Wesson 715 in both a new 2.5 inch and 4 inch version. Both lengths will be hitting stores shortly and will come in .177 caliber pellet and 4.5mm steel BB options. 6mm Airsoft will be out later on. The 4 inch version also includes an integrated accessory rail machined into the outer barrel for those of you wanted to add items like lasers and tactical lights to your Dan Wesson 715.

Last year at SHOT Show ASG introduced the EVO CZ Scorpion 3 A1 Inferno powered Airsoft Rifle but is again reintroducing it this year since they decided to take their time and get it perfect before releasing it in stores this March. The EVO CZ Scorpion 3 A1 is Inferno powered using an HPA system with a custom chip set that allows for a three round burst option an empty magazine detection.

ASG has sourced out not just any 4.5mm Steel BB shooting M9, they are actually getting their new ASG X9 Classic built by KJWorks. KJWorks is known for their Airsoft guns and I have reviewed several of them to date. If you have been looking for a KJWorks M9 but would prefer it to be in 4.5mm Steel BB then the new X9 Classic 4.5mm Steel BB KJWorks M9 exclusive to ASG is where you can get one!

SHOT Show 2017 Umarex Interview

Next up from SHOT Show 2017 in Las vegas, I bring you my Umarex Interview with Bradley Burgin! Bradley showcases two new pistol from Umarex Airguns. First we take a look at the Umarex SA10 CO2 Blowback Pellet and BB Pistol. The Umarex SA10 has a unique full size drop our metal magazine that not only holds the CO2 but also houses 4 8 shot rotary magazines that can be pre loaded and then hot swapped as required. Each 8 shot rotary magazine can be loaded with either 4.5mm Steel BB's or .177 caliber pellets. The Umarex SA10 comes in at a hefty 2 pounds and can shoot up to 426 fps. The barrel is also threaded for attaching an optional mock silencer.

Next up Bradley showed me the ultra realistic and fully licensed Beretta APX which is a Blowback CO2 BB Pistol that like its real steel big brother has a locking metal slide and polymer frame. The Umarex Beretta APX has a 19 round stick magazine and shoots 4.5mm steel BB's at 400 fps.

Last but not least and perhaps the most exciting product from Umarex for me was the Umarex Legends MP. The Legends MP is a replica of the German MP40 submachine gun and even has semi and full auto selectability! The Umarex Legends MP is a mostly metal rifle and comes in at 7.7 pounds. The full size magazine holds two CO2 cartridges along with 60 4.5mm steel BB's for an almost endless supply of ammo :) The Umarex Legends MP like the real German MP40 has a metal folding stock and propels steel BB's at 400 fps.

SHOT Show 2017 Sig Sauer ASP Interview

My First SHOT Show 2017 Las Vegas Interview to kick things off! Dani Navickas from Sig Sauer ASP talks with me about three new CO2 blowback air pistols Sig Sauer ASP is introducing this year just in time for spring season.

The Sig Sauer ASP P320 will be replacing last years P250, don't worry the Sig Sauer ASP P226 is not going anywhere! The P320 is a CO2 Blowback Pellet pistol similar to the previous P250 but this new model has a 30 round belt fed magazine rather than a dual sided 16 round rotary magazine. I love that Sig Sauer ASP is coming out with new innovations like this for us Airgun enthusiasts! The Sig Sauer ASP P320 has a metal slide and polymer frame like it's big powder burning brother and throws pellets at around 430 fps average. Don't expect a ton of shots per CO2, you will be lucky to get two magazine out of a single 12 gram CO2 but I am sure the extra power is worth it.

Sig Sauer ASP also introduced this year two new full metal and full blowback CO2 BB firing 1911's that feature a working safety and grip safety along with a true single action trigger. You have your choice of the signatured Max Michel in two tone black and silver or the Spartan in a Gold Brown finish. Both of these guns are based on the same mechanical build but are cosmetically different. I can say they feel really good in the hand and are super solid. There is a bit of a trade off, you do get a bit higher fps (around 410 fps) than some other 1911's at out there but you will have to put up with a stick magazine.

Of course the Sig Sauer ASP MPX and MCX are still going strong alone with the Sig Sauer ASP P266. Make sure to watch my previous Review Video for the Sig Sauer APS MPX and Sig Sauer APS P226.

Enjoy some additional photos along with my YouTube Sig Sauer SHOT Show 2017 Interview!

I also have some additional video of the KWA booth where they had a laser sighting system set up for people to test out their Airsoft guns on a simulated targeting system.
