Goat Guns Replica Mini Model Guns Review

No Comments

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.

Which is Better - Plastic or Metal Airguns?

No Comments

We often think that something that is more expensive and perhaps built with what we consider to be better materials is going to be the best option. That's not always the case! In this YouTube Video I talk about some of the Pros and Cons to buying a Plastic Airgun versus a Metal Airgun. Of course this applies to BB, Airsoft and Pellet shooters.

Price
In most cases a Plastic Airgun is going to be less expensive, so if you have limited funds then your only option may be a Plastic Airgun and at the end of the day both airguns are going to probably get the job done much the same.

Realism
Generally speaking, most Metal Airguns are going to have more moving parts, often times with working slides and even blowback operation. This is not always the case but even a Metal Airgun that has few working parts will still feel more realistic simply because of the additional weight to the Airgun. Metal has that cold hard feel to it that makes you feel like you're holing something of substance. Plastic Airguns on the other hand can feel light and cheap and usually are very simple in design with less working parts.

Shooting an Airgun with blowback operation simulates the recoil action and in many cases allows for true single action operation of the trigger and hammer. This is going to feel a lot more realistic than shooting a non-blowback Airgun which again is generally what you get with Plastic Airguns.

Durability
Most people assume that because an Airgun is Meta, it is going to be stronger and more durable. This would be true if the Metal used in the Airgun was actually hardened steel but with almost Metal Airguns, they are made using a zinc alloy metal (Pot Metal) that is much softer then hardened steel and can wear and break a lot easier. When you also consider a Metal Airgun is going to be a lot heavier than a Plastic Airgun, a drop onto a hard surface will have a lot more impact which can cause breakage a to a heavy Metal Airgun versus a Plastic light weight Airgun.

Plastic surfaces are also a lot less prone to showing scratches since the Plastic material will usually be black all the way through versus a Metal Airgun that has a painted surface that when scratched hard enough will show through right to the bare metal. You also get wear marks on painted Metal Airguns that will make it look used and older, some people like this look but other do not.

Reliability
Again people are going to assume a Metal Airgun is going to be more reliable simply because it has more metal parts and metal parts are stronger right? Not the case if the parts are made out of zinc alloy. Now some companies will upgrade some high use parts in Airguns to hardened steel but it's hard to know for sure. You can use a magnet to determine what parts are Metal and what parts are hardened steel.

As we mentioned before, Plastic Airguns are generally pretty simple in design, less working parts means less to go wrong at the end of the day so just because you have a Plastic Airgun it doesn't mean it's going to break on you quickly. Actually it may even outlast your Metal Airgun since all those working parts will eventually wear out.

Now I am the first person to admit that I prefer Metal Airgun over Plastic Airguns, I don't mind spending the extra money for more realism and I'm willing to accept the fact that it's not going to last forever but the fact remains, a Plastic Airgun does have some advantages going for it so don't rule them out completely.

The Best Way to Hold Your Airgun

No Comments

I made a similar video about how to hold your airgun a while back but sometimes they get a bit buried in all the video I make. I feel it's really important how you grip your gun even if it's only an airgun with very little kick or recoil. Proper pistol grip is something you should use no matter what so that you can carry it forward to what ever gun you are shooting.

More kick or recoil means a firmer grip is required to hold the gun so when shooting a powder burner with lots of kick grip becomes even more important.

In this video I go over the proper two handed grip to use when holding a pistol, which hand to hold lose and which had to grip tight, how to overlap your fingers and thumbs.

Umarex Combat Zone Enforcer CO2 Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Umarex USA.
Model: Combat Zone Enforcer
Materials: Pastic outer shell.
Weight: .9 pounds (400 grams)
Barrel: Metal non-rifled (4.25 inches).
Propulsion: CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto non-blowback, double action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 15 round metal stick magazine.
FPS: 400.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Umarex Combat Zone Enforcer CO2 Airsoft Pistol is medium to heavy but since it's a double action only trigger, this is to be expected. There is a fair amount of take up with the entire pull being about 8-9 pounds and the release point happening right at the very back of the pull, you get a bit of a clicking sound warning right before it releases. If you are used to shooting other lower priced double action triggered Airguns where the barrel protrudes out of the front of the gun when you pull the trigger, then you will know what to expect with the Umarex Combat Zone Enforcer CO2 Airsoft Pistol.

Accuracy: This part of the review is yet to be determined as I have not done my Field Test or Shooting test. I have tested out the Umarex XBG in the 4.5mm Steel BB version and it shot really close to 400 fps and produced about 2 inch groupings on a target setup 30 feet away using 10 shots.

Build Quality: The Umarex Combat Zone Enforcer CO2 Airsoft Pistol has pretty much all the mechanical parts moulded into the shell of the airgun with the exception of the Trigger, safety and magazine release. Again, most of the build materials are plastic with the exception of some internal parts, the magazines, the barrels and the triggers. This simplistic design does work well and since there are less moving parts there is less that can go wrong.

Realism: The Umarex Combat Zone Enforcer CO2 Airsoft Pistol is not a licensed replica but sure looks a lot like the XDM 9mm 3.8 Compact. Of course since the Umarex Combat Zone Enforcer CO2 Airsoft Pistol is all plastic and has no blowback operation or a moving slide it won't fool anyone once they pick it up but form a slight mistaken it looks real enough.

Available From: The Canada and US Replica Airgun Stores.

Pros:

  • Very low cost, around $50 bucks.
  • Should have a nice combination of Shots per CO2 and FPS because of efficient design.
  • Universal metal Stick magazine works in in a bunch of guns, can mix a and match.
  • CO2 tabs are fairly well hidden.
  • Rails for adding accessories.
  • Constructions screws are  less obvious (Smaller).
  • Tried and true design that works and is reliable.
  • Swing up CO2 door will not get lost.

Cons:

  • Mostly all plastic.
  • Not a lot of actual working parts except for the trigger and magazine release. All else is molded in to the plastic.
  • Double action triggers are a bit longed and heavy.
  • No adjustable sights or hop up adjustments so hopefully it shoots straight?

Comments:

Personally I prefer spending a few more bucks to get air pistols that have more metal and more working parts, but not everyone has 100+ dollars to spend on an Airsoft Gun or do they need it to be super ultra realistic. Some people just want a gun that is easy on the wallet but still offers decent performance and reliability, and to be honest, a simpler design with less moving parts to wear out or malfunction is probably going to give you better reliability at the end of the day. It just depends what you are looking for. Even if you have a few ultra realistic high end airguns, why not pick something like the Umarex Combat Zone Enforcer CO2 Airsoft Pistol to plink around with and save some of the wear and tear on your more expensive Airguns?

Gletcher TT-A Tokarev CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Airsoft Pistol.
Manufacturer: Gletcher.
Model: TT-A (Replica of Tokarev).
Materials: Metal & plastic.
Weight: 1.37 pounds (620 grams).
Barrel: 4.5 inches, smooth bore.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2.
Action: Blowback - single action only.
Ammunition Type: 6mm Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 13 rounds.
FPS: 263fps. (80m/s) Claimed?

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Gletcher TT-A CO2 Airsoft Tokarev is single action only, the blowback action cocks the hammer after each shot but you will need to either draw the hammer back or rack the slide on the first shot. I did find the the SAO trigger to be rather heavy for a single action type trigger? Perhaps it will loosen up a bit over time? The take-up is kind of long since there is no real reset that takes place after the hammer is drawn back. The release point is sudden but does take some effort to release the trigger.

Accuracy: So far I have only Field Tested the 4.5mm Steel BB version and of dun it shot in the upper 300 fps range with a pretty decent accuracy shooting a 10 shot group form 30 feet back all within 1.5 inches. Hopefully the Airsoft version can produce similar results...

Build Quality: The Gletcher TT-A CO2 Airsoft Tokarev is really nicely made overall, pretty much the entire pistol is metal except for the grips which are plastic of course. The finish looks really nice and the fit is good, not a lot of slide wiggle and all the mechanical parts function smoothly with the exception of the rather strange two piece trigger design. You really need to watch my video to see what I mean here!

Realism: I am lucky enough to own a Tokarev type semi auto real steel pistol and looking at the two of them side by side they look very much the same. Of course my Norinco Tokarev (Type 54) Model 213 is made out of hardened weapons grade steel and so it is heavier but the Gletcher TT-A CO2 Airsoft Tokarev does feel solid in the hand with it's all metal design. The working slide catch, magazine release and hammer are all in the right places and function as they should. Gletcher even made sure to have a recessed barrel and hidden CO2 screw which adds to the realism. The only real giveaways are again that rather strange looking single action trigger and the two pins near the lower front of the slide. Not a deal breaker!. I do have to mention the way the safety was implemented on this Gletcher TT-A CO2 Airsoft Tokarev, Gletcher placed it just inside the Slide Stop Retainer Clip in a kind of unobtrusive location.

Pros:

  • One of the only 6mm Airsoft BB shooting Tokarev replicas I have come across so far
  • Very solid and weighty gun for it’s size. Mostly all metal.
  • CO2 is well hidden.
  • 13 round all metal stick magazine once installed looks full size.
  • Blowback operation, slide locks back on last round.
  • Did a good job of making the safety discreet.
  • The Tokarev reminds me of a smaller more compact 1911 which is another gun I like.

Cons:

  • SAO trigger is rather heavy.
  • Trigger looks a bit funky compared to a real Tokarev trigger.
  • Would have liked to have seen a full size drop out metal magazine on this gun.

Comments:

So far I have liked all the Gletcher guns that I have come across, it's great that Gletcher offers a lot of unique guns from the past, for me the Tokarev is near and dear to my heart since it is very 1911 like and I truly love the 1911 design. It only makes sense that I would own not only a real steel 1911 but also the Russian Tokarev. I'm not really sure how the Gletcher TT-A CO2 Airsoft Tokarev is going to perform using the chronograph and during my paper target testing from 30 feet out but I am popgun ti will shoot a bit harder than  the claimed 263fps and if it can get similar accuracy as the 4.5mm steel BB version that will be great!

Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Shooting Review

No Comments

It seems like I am forever reviewing some version of the KWC CO2 Blowback 1911 either in Airsoft or Steel BB or distributed by Cybergun or Gletcher or Umarex or pretty much every company out there has their own rebrand of it. At the end of the day they are all made in the KWC factory and are all interchangeable, you can even swap out the Airsoft parts with the steel BB part if you want to...

So here we have the Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series in Airsoft which I believe comes in 4 different finishes: Stainless, All Black, Two-Tone and Dark Earth. They are all Tactical 1911's with a rail on them. They just come in different finishes.

So how did we do in our See Can indoor Airgun Shooting test? As expected the Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol performed well. I placed 5 shots through my Chrony Chronograph using a brand new CO2 with .20 gram Airsoft BB's and averaged 373 fps which is about perfect for a full blowback CO2 Airsoft Pistol. If you're wondering the temperature was moderate at 16 Celsius or 61 Fahrenheit.

Next I placed 10 rounds downrange into my paper target 30 feet away using a rested position) Sand bag up front and sitting in the rear). My Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol was shooting a bit on the high side but the adjustable Bax Hop-up should allow for us to bring it down accordingly, that said my 10 shot grouping was just under 2 inches at 30 feet.

Even though I find myself reviewing or testing the various versions of the KWC 1911's. I don't really have a problem with it. They have been one of the most popular Blowback Airguns if not thee most popular and for a reason. They look and feel great, are reasonably priced, they perform well and have gotten more and more reliable over the years. All you ahed to do is pick which one of the Cybergun Colt 1911 Rail Gun Series CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistols you want?

Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol Shooting Review

No Comments

First off let's get the fact that the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol is not going to win any awards for true to scale weight and materials used in its production. This Airsoft pistol is virtually all plastic with the exception of some internal metal parts. It weighs next to nothing but that could actually be a good thing if you don't want a heavy sidearm dragging you down on the field. Once you are all geared up with your primary weapon and all it's extra magazines and what not. And of course you are probably covered head to toe in some sort of tactical uniform, why drag yourself down even more with a heavy sidearm and all it's heavy backup magazines? Just a thought!

What's really important is how does the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol actually perform? Well really good for an inexpensive pistol and since there is no blowback operation you are going to get a lot more shots per CO2 and higher fps.

In terms of power, being non-blowback did seem to help out the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol. I got an average of 390 fps shooting 6 shots through my Chrony Chronograph. I was using .20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's with a brand new CO2 cartridge. The temperature was around 16-17 degrees Celsius which is around 62 degree Fahrenheit.

Next up I placed 10 rounds into my paper target setup 30 feet down range. From my seated and rested position I was able to get about a 2 inch grouping and all the shots where fairly well centered, just a tad to the left. This is good considering most lower priced Airsoft pistols are not going to have adjustable sights which is the same with the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol.

Being that the Cybergun Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol is non-blowback, it only shoots in double action only but I found the trigger to be really good. It's nice and light, not too long and even good for rapid fire shooting! You just need to learn the break point if you want to slow it down and go for accuracy. Overall I think the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol is a nice under the radar kind of Airsoft pistol and if you are looking for a light weight inexpensive backup gun then the Cybergun Sig Sauer SP2022 Sportline CO2 Airsoft Pistol would be a good option.

ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

I got the chance to Field Test another 4.5mm Steel BB Air Rifle. Most of the time I'm testing out pistols so the opportunity to shoot some rounds through a rifle is a nice change. Todays Air Rifle test subject was the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle and by the way it also comes in a 6mm Airsoft version called the ASG TAC-6 CO2 Airsoft Rifle. Maybe down the road I will see how the 6mm Airsoft version compares to the 4.5mm Steel BB version...

Right out of the get go the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle surprised me with some rather high velocity shots going through my Chrony Chronograph. The highest FPS shot getting up to 538 fps and the slower shot which was the 5th shot slowing down a bit to 485 fps. My 5 shot average was still up and over 500 fps at 514 fps.

If you're worried about the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle being legal as an unregulated firearm in Canada, there is no need to be concerned since the 500 fps limitation also requires a foot pound energy of over 4.2 foot pounds for the airgun to require a firearms license (both thresholds must be met). A 4.5mm steel BB weighs in at around 5.1 grain and even with the fastest shot of 538 fps, the foot pound energy would only be 3.28 foot pounds so nope, no PAL required.

OK so the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle has some decent power, what about accuracy? Again the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle came through with flying colors! I was able to get about a 1 inch 10 shot grouping even though I was struggling to use the peep sight. My old eyes really find it hard to focus using a peep sight. I would suggest a red dot or even a low powered optical scope since the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle has a rail for this purpose. I did find that the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle shot a little bit low and slightly to the right. This can easily be corrected by adjusting the rear iron sight since it has windage and elevation settings.

The ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle would really be a great plinker even shooting objects at ranges up to 50 feet you should still be able to nail a pop can with no problems. The double action trigger is a bit long and not the lightest I have used but you can still get shots off fairly quickly. Make sure to also checkout my Table Top Video for more details and specifications along with somer nice closeup video.

Cybergun Stainless Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol Field Test Review

No Comments

I have kind of already reviews this Cybergun Sig Sauer X-Five Blowback Airsoft pistol before but in the all black version with the non-adjustable sights. I'm kind of glad I did a revisit of this Stainless steel wood grip version since I actually got fairly different results even though both Airsoft Pistols are mechanically the same.

Looking back on at my 2016 Field Test Sooting video for the Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol I averaged around 312 fps and placed 10 rounds into my paper target all within about an inch of each other. I just wanted to put that out there as a reference but watch the video and see for yourself...

Skip ahead to the present and my retest of the Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol (Stainless version) was still good but power was much better and accuracy went down a  bit. Power for the Stainless Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol went up 100 fps with an average of 415 shooting 5 rounds of 20 gram plastic Airsoft BB's though my Chrony Chronograph. That is a big difference for sure!

Yes accuracy went down a bit but with the Stainless Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol but I still grouped my 10 shots within about 2 inches using my standard 30 foot back, rested shooting position. There will always be some human factor when shooting this way since the pistol is not locked into place and even though I am using a reseted seated position there is some movement going on.

Overall my retest showed that the Stainless Cybergun Sig Sauer X-five CO2 Blowback Airsoft Pistol is well worth taking a look at. Personally I really like this Stainless wood grip version not only for its looks but for the simple fact it has a fully adjustable target sight on the back. Add heavy blowback operation and a very smooth single and double action trigger and this all makes for a great Airsoft Pistol.

ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

I think this may be a record for me, I mean following up a Table Top Review with a Field Test Shooting video within a day of each other! If you have not already watched my Table Top Review for the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver than make sure to do give it a look.

Shooting Field Tests of blank guns are really pretty simple. There is no accuracy or chronograph test to consider since there is no bullet coming out of the barrel, kind of makes it hard in this case. This may even seem a little bit weird since what is there left to actually test? I guess as long as I pull the trigger and it goes "BANG" each time then we have ourselves a winner on our hands :)

I can attest that the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver was a clear winner on this day. I loaded 7 rounds into the 7 shot cylinder and then pulled the trigger 9 times. And as you can imagine the first 7 trigger pulls went "BANG" each pull while the last 2 trigger pulls went click-click as expected...

All fun aside the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver Field is a really nice quality blank revolver great for many situations like; Gun training, animal training, scaring off pests, stage or movie props or just collecting for fun.

ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Blank Revolver.
Manufacturer: ROHM (RÖHM).
Model: RG-49
Materials: Mostly Metal.
Weight: 439 grams 15.5 ounces.
Barrel: Removable - Front firing designed for flares.
Propulsion: Gun powder.
Action: Single & double action.
Ammunition Type: .22 caliber crimped.
Ammunition Capacity: 7 rounds.
FPS: N/A.

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver in single action is very light having virtually no take up at all. The double action trigger pull is much heavier with a smooth release. Mechanically the trigger feels really good.

Accuracy: NA.
Build Quality: The overall build quality for the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver is excellent, being German made it's built to last and the fit and finish is typical German quality. There are steel parts where they need to be like in the barrel, pins, screws and reenforcing parts, the rest of the gun is generally made out of a zinc metal with only the simulated wood grips being made out of plastic.

Realism: The ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver is not exact replicas of any given gun in production as this would make importing it into Canada even more difficult, but it is styled after a Smith & Wesson Snub Nosed Revolver. As for looking like and working like real guns, the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver looks and sounds like a real gun, with the exception of the dangerous bullet coming out of the barrel!
Purchase from: The Replica Airguns Canada Store.

Pros:

  • German made Quality.
  • All metal gun with reenforced steel in some areas.
  • Front firing and capable of shooting flares.
  • .22 caliber blanks are less expensive and not as loud to use.
  • Comes with removable Flare adaptor & Cleaning rod.
  • Super compact and portable.
  • Highest capacity ROHM Revolver with 7 round cylinder.

Cons:

  •  Smaller caliber blanks are not as loud or powerful.
  • Can be considered a bit expensive due to blank guns in general being hard to get and in high demand in Canada.

Comments:
The main purpose of the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver is to make noise along with the added ability to shoot flares and that's exactly what you're getting here. The ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver may not be as elegant as the other ROHM revolvers with their nicer barrels but with the ROHM RG-46 22 Caliber Blank Revolver you are getting the most compact 7 round shooter and at a bit lower price than the other full sized ROHM Blank Guns.

KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: Airsoft Rifle.
Manufacturer: KJWorks.
Model: M700P.
Materials: Metal with textured synthetic stock.
Weight: 7.8 pounds (3600 grams).
Barrel: Smooth bore barrel.
Propulsion: Gas operated (Green Gas or propane).
Action: Bolt..
Ammunition Type: 6mm plastic Airsoft BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 10-11 round metal magazine.
FPS: Up to 550fps.

Trigger Pull: the trigger on the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is what you would expect from a bolt action style hunting/sniper rifle. The working of the bolt does most of the work for your trigger finger so all that is required is the release of the firing pin from a very short and light tigger.

Accuracy: Checkout my full field test shooting video for the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle to see how it performed in detail. I did only shoot it inside the Sea Can shooting range since the weather outside this time of year is not favorable especially for gas guns so I was limited to ab out 30 feet, perhaps I can retest the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle outdoors at longer ranges when the weather is better. That said the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle did shot about a 1.5 inch shot grouping and averaged about 400 fps using .20 gram Airsoft BB's.

Build Quality: The KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is well built all around and the fit and finish feel good. all the mechanical parts functioned without any problems and I do like the textured stock and nice rubber butt pad. I did notice a couple of spots on the textured stock where it there where cosmetic imperfections, perhaps this is form the moulding of it?

Realism: The KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is based around the Remington 700 platform which looks like your standard high powered hunting rifle. The Airsoft version looks and functions just like the real deal since we are using Green Gas rather than a spring making the bolt easy and smooth to operate.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Bolt is super easy to use compared to a Spring style bolt action Airsoft rifle.

  • Textured stock feels great.

  • Lots of sight option with the built in scope rail and removable adjustable iron sights.

  • Ready for Bipod or sling.

  • Full size drop out metal magazine that holds the Gas and Airsoft BB’s.

  • Easy to adjust Hop-up screw.

Cons:

  • FPS was a little bit lower than expected.

  • Was not able to get 11 rounds into the magazine.

  • Some imperfections on the textured stock.

Comments:
I have revised a couple of spring bolt action Airsoft rifles in the past and although it's nice that all you need is a bag of Airsoft BB's and your ready to shoot, having the Gas operation makes the bolt so  much easier to operate allowing for much quicker follow up shoots. The more time you have to acquire your next target and make the shot can make all the difference when your enemy is closing in. The KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle is a nice ready to shoot out of the box Airsoft rifle that if you want to can be customized pretty easy with a bipod or scope which I would recommend since not only will this make the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle look a lot better but also way more practical.

ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: BB Rifle.
Manufacturer: ASG.
Model: TAC 4.5.
Materials: Plastic with some internal metal parts.
Weight: 3.5 pounds (1588 grams).
Barrel: 12 inches, metal non-rifled.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2 x 1.
Action: Semi auto, double action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 21 round metal stick magazine.
FPS: 417.

Trigger Pull: The double action only type trigger pull on the ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle is not too heavy but it is rather long so really quick rapped fire shooting will require some finger work. The trigger reset is right at the begging of the pull so you need to make sure you allow the trigger full range of motion or you may miss the odd shot.

Accuracy: I haven't done my Field Test Shooting video just yet for the ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle but hope to do it soon so stay posted for that video. ASG claimed the fps to be right around 417 but I have a feeling it shoudl come in a little bit higher than this since there is no blowback and the barrel is close to 12 inches long, With the fiber optic front sight and fully adjustable rear peep sight I shoudl be able to get some decent rounds on target downrange and hopefully get a nice grouping.

Build Quality: The ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle is mostly plastic but feels pretty good in the hand with decent fit and finish. There are some metal internal part along with the outer barrel but for the most part the ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle is all plastic including the trigger and front and rear sights.

Realism: The ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle is not a replica of any modern rifle that I know of but it does look a bit like a Beretta CX4 Storm especially the back half of it. The flash hider and top and bottom raise add to the realism.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store.

Pros:

  • Very customizable with rails top and bottom.

  • Comes with a rather nice Bipod.

  • Front and back Iron sights are very usable.

  • Safety switch is in a great location for right handed shooters.

  • Integrated laser add on is a nice touch.

  • Solid construction.

  • Rubber Butt Pad is nice and thick.

  • Removable barrel to reduce size for easier transportation.

  • Also come in Airsoft version.

Cons:

  • DOA Trigger pull is a bit long which will slow down rapid fire shooting a bit.

  • Mostly Plastic Polymer build.

  • Why not a longer inner barrel for possible more fps?

Comments:
It's nice when a new action shooting air rifle comes out on the market since there are not a ton of them. The ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle is a nice addition if you're looking for a BB shooter for plinking around the yard. You can also get an Airsoft firing version too called the ASG TAC 6 CO2 Airsoft Rifle if you want to shoot some rounds that are a little bit less destructive and more game friendly. The ASG TAC 4.5 CO2 Air Rifle offers a lot of customizability with its top and bottom rails for accessories which allow for the placement of the included removable iron sights and Bipod. I would recommend adding a red dot sight and perhaps even a tac light to really dec out this modern looking air rifle.

ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 Air Rifle Unboxing Video

No Comments

I don't generally make unboxing videos, usually I'll make a preview video if I want to get the word out that I have a new product for review but I thought I would change things up a bit with the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 Air Rifle Unboxing Video. There are actually two version of this rifle, the TAC-4.5 and the TAC-6. The ASG TAC-6 CO2 Air Rifle is the Airsoft equivalent, pretty much identical to the TAC-4.5 with the acceptation of shooting 6mm Plastic Airsoft BB's.

Getting back to the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 Air Rifle, it uses a standard 12 gram CO2 cartridges to shoot 4.5mm Steel BB's at around 417 fps. The BB's are stored in its 21 round metal stick magazine similar to what you would find in many standard BB pistols. I'm pretty sure this rifle is actually internally a pistol of sorts and even the barrel internally is short like a pistol. The external longer barrel that you see is mainly for show to give the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 Air Rifle its rifle appearance. The TAC outer shell is made of synthetic plastic keeping the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 Air Rifle fairly light at around 3.5 pounds.

You will find Weaver/Picatinny rails top and bottom with removable fiber optic iron sights and a removable Bipod with adjustable legs. The rear stock has a rubber Buttplate for added comfort. I found it interesting that the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 Air Rifle has an area right at the front in the stock for an optional laser sight.

Look forward to a more detailed Table Top and Field Test Shooting Video coming out shortly for the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 Air Rifle.

KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle Field Test Review

No Comments

I'm trying to remember if I have ever reviewed a Gas Operated Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle before or not? I know I have reviewed Spring Operated Bolt Action Airsoft Rifles but I think this is a first for me. With Spring Bolt Action Airsoft Rifles there is some work involved in the back and forth movement of the bolt since the power is coming from the spring tension, compared to a Gas Bolt Action Airsoft system there is virtually no resistance in the bolt so you can get off your follow up shots a lot quicker.

I would like to get out and test the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle at a much longer distance than here in my Indoor Sea Can Airgun Range but the weather outside right now is kind of cold and wet. Perhaps in the summer I can do a revisit of the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle and test it out at a much longer range using heavier Airsoft BB's.

For this indoor short range testing I used .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's and placing 5 shots through my Chrony Chronograph I got a an average of 382 fps. The gas magazine was fully topped up using propane gas and the temperate was around 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit).

Again using .20 gram Plastic Airsoft BB's I then performed my close range accuracy test (about 30 feet away) and the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle shot about a 1.5 inch grouping with one outlier that went kind of low, perhaps a bad Airsoft BB? With most sniper style Airsoft rifles you will want to use heavier gram Airsoft BB's which should help with accuracy so I would expect the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle to tighten up a bit using a .30 or higher gram BB.

I was surprised at how quiet the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle was and didn't mind the peep sights after some getting use to. I would recommend adding a 3 power or higher scope to the included scope mount. Throw a Bipod on the KJWorks M700P Gas Bolt Action Airsoft Rifle and you have yourself a nice sniper rifle setup indeed.
