It's always good to start the week off with an update video so everyone knows what's happening short-term and long-term...
I recently acquired a couple new items that I will be reviewing in the near future (along with several other reviews that I will be trying to get to ASAP!) First off is the Crosman M4-177 which is basically a multi-pump pellet and BB shooting replica of an AR or M4 styled carbine used by the US military. The Crosman M4-177 is mostly plastic on the outside but on first inspection seems to be built fairly well. It has removable metal sights and the magazine is also detachable but is not used as a magazine but rather a compartment for storage. The unit I have is the Canadian detuned version which shoots .177 caliber lead pellets and 4.5mm steel BB's at under 500 fps.
I also received my first old west blank shooting revolver (M1873), I have wanted one of these for a while and finally got my hands on one :) Unfortunately this one has a plugged barrel so it vents out of the cylinder area which may get a bit messy. I may see about making this one a front venting gun if possible and of course as long as it's within the law as I plan to make sure the cylinder stays semi plugged so no actual rounds could ever be shot out of it. The Old West M1873 Blank Revolver holds six .380 crimped blanks and is an all metal and wood construction. This should be a fun review!
I also touch upon a few other guns on the list of items I need to review and by the way in an attempt to get caught up I will be doing my Table Top and Shooting reviews combined.
Here are some of the guns that I will be reviewing over the next while...
- Gamo P-25 & PT-85 .177 Caliber Blowback Pellet pistols (This one will get done this week!)
- Daisy Powerline 5501 Blowback 4.5mm BB pistol.
- Webley Tempest .177 & .22 Caliber Spring Piston Air Pistol.
- Western Arms Smith & Wesson Shorty 40 Blowback 6mm Airsoft Pistol.
- Kimar Lady K Stainless Steel 9mm P.A.K. Blank Pistol
- EKOL Lady Chrome 9mm P.A.K. Blank Pistol.
Well, I better get at it - make sure to watch my YouTube video version of this Update Video!
