Sig Sauer Spartan and Max Michel 1911 Blowback CO2 BB Pistol Preview

No Comments

At SHOT Show this year I got to checkout two new 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistols from Sig Sauer, the 1911 Spartan and the 1911 Max Michel. A couple years back Sig introduced their (Advanced  Sport Pellet) or ASP line of pellet shooting Airguns in both rifle and pistol version but interestingly enough Sigs 1911 line of airguns are not pellet shooter but rather 4.5mm Steel BB airguns.

Both the Spartan and the Max Michel 1911 BB Pistols are styled after current real steal Sig Sauer 1911's. There are some slight differences in the airgun version cosmetically, notable the added Picatinny rails on both of them but overall they are decent replicas of the real steel versions.

The Spartan and the Max Michel 1911 BB Pistols are built on the same components but have different finishings but their general specifications will be identical.

  • 12 gram CO2
  • 4.5mm steel BB's
  • 16 round stick magazine
  • 410 fps
  • 2.06 pounds
  • Full metal slide and frame
  • Semi auto blowback operation
  • Single action only trigger
  • Cam lever CO2 loading port
  • Functioning grip safety
  • White dot sights

Both Sig Sauer 1911 Blowback BB pistols feel really solid and the single action tigers also feel really nice, what you would expect from a real 1911 trigger. As I mentioned already both Sig 1911 BB Airguns have Picatinny raise which you will not find on the original real steal versions, and I also notices that the Max Michel version has standard sights rather than competition sights and is also lacking the flared but-plate on the magazine.

I am looking forward to giving both these Sig Sauer 1911 Blowback BB pistols a good testing in the Sea Can Airgun shooting range so stay posted for my Field Test Shooting Video and also full Table Top Review.
