What’s going on next week?

I will be away competing in a Body Building Fitness Contest so there will not be any more videos that week.

You may have noticed I have been withering away this past couple of months. This is in preparation for a Fitness Contest I am going into. For a show like this you need to be super lean to be competitive.

I have been competing since 2015 mainly in Men’s Physique and have qualified myself over the years to compete at the National level in Amateur Body Building.

The competition I am going to is the GNC / ALLMAX Canadian National Pro Qualifier in Toronto. If I do really well I can possibly get an IFBB Pro Card. Getting an IFBB Pro Card means I would now be able to compete in Pro Body Building competitions.

In order to win the Pro Card I would need to win my hight class and then win the overalls against the other winners in their hight class.

To date I have come close to winning the IFFB Pro Card but just missed it on two occasions. I am hoping to get the IFBB Pro Card this times around but I know the competition will be very competitive.

Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun Field Test Review

No Comments

Make sure to watch my Table Top Video Review for the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun for all the details and specifications. And if you have not already taken a look at the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 then watch those video reviews since both guns are very similar internally with some cosmetic differences.

The purpose of my Field Test Shooting Video is to find out how the airgun being reviewed performs in terms of velocity and accuracy, and if the ratings on paper end-up being the same or close to the tested results. Crosman claims the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is capable of shooting 5.1 grain 4.5mm Steel BB’s at up to 430 fps. When I tested the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun using my Chronograph averaging out 5 shots using a brand new set of CO2 cartridges I averaged 385 fps. Note the temperature in my Indoor Airgun Sea Can Shooting Range was not super warm at about 20-22 degrees Celsius or right around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I was able to get 405 fps from the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 but I have a feeling the temperate may have been a little bit warmer for the DPMS SBR Testing which does help to increase the fps.

Moving on to the accuracy portion of this Field Test Shooting Review for the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun, I loaded up the 25 round magazine with the maximum amount t it would hold and then placed 10 semi auto shots on my paper target setup 30 feet downrange. I was using a rested and seated shooting position to help minimize human factor. I was a bit surprised that the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun shot a 2.5 inch semi auto 10 shot group since the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 was able to get just under 1 inch when I performed the same test.

I then flipped the semi auto selector switch to full auto and dumped the remaining 15 rounds into my paper target in full auto mode and to my surprise the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun actually tightened up it’s grouping a little bit closer to 1.5 inches which is amazing in full auto mode with the airgun rocking around a lot due to the blowback action.

In summary the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun performed a lot like the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4, just a little bit lower fps perhaps because of the difference in temperature when both of the airguns where tested. In semi auto mode I should have been able to get a tighter grouping, perhaps it was my performance on this day? But in full auto mode I was able to get nearly identical results as I shot with the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4.

I think it really comes down to which of the Crosman AR type full auto BB rifles you like the look of since both are very capable shooters. Or just get both if you can’t decide :)

Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun Table Top Review

No Comments

Type: BB Rifle.
Manufacturer: Crosman.
Model: Bushmaster MPW.
Materials: Metal & plastic.
Weight: 6.5 pounds (4.98 kilograms).
Length: 21 inches (Stock all the way in).
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2 dual cartridges.
Action: Blowback - single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 25 rounds.
FPS: 430fps.
Rate of Fire: 1400 rounds per minute in full auto

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is single action only since the charging handle must be cocked first before you can shoot it. The trigger is short and fairly light as you would expect from an AR type trigger action. The bonus with the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is when you switch it over to full auto mode and just one pull and hold of the trigger will empty the 25 round magazine in just seconds.

Accuracy: So far I have not actually shot the Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun but since the internals are exactly the same as the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 I have already fully review, then I will expect it to performa about the same until I do my Field Test Shooting Review. You shoudl expect about 400 fps in semi auto mode and in terms of accuracy I hope to get a similar 3/4 inch 10 round semi auto grouping from 30 feet away. Full auto will open up the group a bit but not too much, maybe around 2 inches…

Build Quality: The Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is well made all around. Weighing in at 6.5 pounds without any add on accessories it feel solid and well built. There is a lot of metal going on inside and out of this rifle but keep in mind the top and bottom receiver are plastic with metal parts where they need to be like in the internals, pretty much all the working parts are metal, the magazine is full metal, the buffer tub is metal, charging handle, selector switch, magazine release, bolt release, trigger and of course the barrel is metal.

Realism: The Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is about as real as you are going to get in a CO2 Blowback AR/M4 styled Airgun. You can even take it apart and split the top and bottom receivers like the real steal version. The blowback action gives you some recoil but more importantly offers a true single action trigger and of course the full auto ability we all love. Almost all the working parts work like they would on a real M4 other than the forward assist which is moulded into the receiver.

Pros:

  • Super realistic working M4/AR 4.5mm BB Rifle just like the DPMS SBR but in a different flavor.

  • Full blowback operation with both semi and full auto shooting, can feel the blowback operation rocking the gun.

  • Good weight and feel to it.

  • Almost everything works exactly like the real steel version. (Charging handle, dust cover, bolt release, magazine release, selector switch…)

  • Duel CO2 full metal drop out magazine that holds the 25 4.5mm steel BB’s.

  • Adjustable and customizable AR buttstock.

  • Included red dot sights and ability to add pop-up iron sights.

  • Lots of rails for mounting additional cool hardware.

  • Built in Mock Suppressor.

Cons:

  • Receiver is plastic but well made and does not compromise feel or weight since there is lots of metal throughout this gun.

  • No iron sights included.

  • No fore grip included like the DPMS SBR.

Comments:

The Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is really pretty much the same as the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB Full Auto Rifle with more or less Cosmetic changes. One big advantage over the DPMS SBR is the AR comparable buffer tube which allows you to swap out any AR styled rear stock you choose! You also get an included Red Dot sight since there are no Iron sights. The Crosman Bushmaster MPW CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is super customizable with its quad-rail so go ahead and dress yours up with Iron sights, lasers, tactical lights, foregrips or whatever else you can dream up.

June Update with New Products from Sig Sauer - Crosman - KWC - Air Venturi - Pocket Shot

No Comments

Again I have some new products to show everyone. Some we got a bit of a preview of when I was at SHOT Show 2019 earlier this year but now I have them in my hands to show off and of course will be doing full Table Top and Filed Test for anything new as soon as I can get to them.

Starting with Sig Sauer, they sent me their brand new Sig Sauer P365 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. This was probably one of my favorite new Air Pistols at SHOT Show simply because it is so small and somehow Sig was able to find a way to put a full size drop out metal magazine that holds both the CO2 and BB’s in it. This is one I am really looking forward to testing out in the Indoor Sea Can Airgun Shooting Range.

Another fantastic product is Crosman’s DPMS Full Auto CO2 BB Rifle which was pretty much perfect the first time around. Well at SHOT Show this year Crosman updated it a bit mainly with some cosmetic changes and now is offering the Crosman MPW, a slightly shorter version of the DPMS and now with an AR Compatible Stock for customizing your Crosman’s MPW Full Auto CO2 BB Rifle.

Yet one more item I was drooling over at SHOT Show 2019 where the Air Venturi Springfield Arms XDM Air Pistols being offered in GBB Airsoft and CO2 BB models along with 3.8 and 4.5 inch versions. It looks like the GBB Airsoft venisons where first out of the factory and I was able to get them in two styles, the Air Venturi Springfield Arms XDM 3.8 GBB Airsoft and Air Venturi Springfield Arms XDM 4.5 GBB Airsoft.

So maybe not as exciting… I also take a look at a NBB CO2 BB Makarov from KWC that is pretty basic but is much less expensive and will offer higher FPS and more shots per CO2 being that it is Non-blowback Airgun. It will be interesting to see how it compares performance wise to the KWC Full Blowback CO2 BB version.

Last but also super cool and I know it’s not really as Airgun related but still something I think everyone will be interested in is the Pocket Shot Pro Arrow Pouch with D-Loop. I reviewed the Pocket Shot “Slingshot” a while back, this new product allows you to use standard Arrows with their new Arrow Pouch getting around 40 pounds of pull and it comes with a trigger release. By the way the Pocket Shot Pro Arrow system is legals to hunt deer with in most US States, I’m not sure about Canada but perhaps here too?

Should I buy KWC or Another Brands Version?

No Comments

The question comes up often about which Airgun to buy. Customers are wondering when they are looking at a specific Airgun and they see several similar products but from different companies, are they the same gun and if so which one should they decide to buy?

One of the biggest Airgun suppliers out there is for sure KWC, their BB and Airsoft guns are redistributed through companies like Umarex, Crosman, Sig Sauer, ASG, Gletcher and more. Often times the companies that redistribute KWC Airguns hold licensing agreements with real gun manufacturers like Smith & Wesson, Glock, Colt, Beretta, Sig Sauer, Taurus to name a few… KWC makes the Airguns in their Taiwanese factory but they are not allowed to put a real gun manufacturer license on the Airguns they distribute directly so KWC distributed Airguns will generally be all black.

I have also seen companies like Umarex distribute a new KWC Airgun that I have not seen yet from KWC, I believe KWC works with these big name Airgun companies directly and will build a new gun or variation of an existing KWC Airgun for them and give that Company an exclusive for a period of time. KWC will eventually regain the rights to sell that Airgun model directly after 6 months to a year.

Now that you know a little bit more on how it all works let’s get back to whether you should buy a KWC branded Airgun or other Brands same Airgun. It really comes down to I would say three factors. Do you want a Licensed version of the Airgun you are buying? Is there a price difference? Which gun is available to buy when I am ready to buy?

When you buy the Licensed version of the KWC Airgun redistributed through a third part Airgun Company you will often get a lot more writing on the Airgun than just the Gun Manufacturers name. Warning information comes to mind and does not look all that attractive on the slide where it is usually found in bright white lettering. If you like a cleaner look and don’t mind the lack of licensing then the KWC distributed version will generally be all back, nice and clean looking.

You would think buying the KWC Version that is sold more directly to the end customer would be the less expensive of the options because less hands are involved in the selling process. This is not always true, it is more about supply and demand, if more people want the cleaner looking KWC version but it’s harder to get ahold of than the price of the KWC version may actually be higher than say the Umarex or Crosman version. So shop around if price is the deciding factor as the guns are going to be mechanically the same with just some slight cosmetic differences between them.

Lastly, availability maybe what eventually leads you to buy a KWC version over an Umarex, or Crosman or Sig version since if the gun is not in stock well you may have limited options and so the one in stock is going to be perhaps your only option! Don’t feel like you got short changed, again these guns are virtually all the same at the end of the day no matter if you buy it from KWC, Umarex, Crosman, Sig Sauer, ASG, Gletcher or whomever.

Velocity Outdoor SHOT Show 2019 Interview

1 Comment

This may be a bit confusion to some of you but Crosman has done a bit of a rebrand and is now going by the name of Velocity Outdoor. This is because Crosman has been acquiring more and more products over the years that are not necessarily airgun related and felt that putting all the brands under the name Velocity Outdoor made more sense from a company stand point. Of course in this video we are going to focus in on the Crosman Products within Velocity Outdoor.

So what’s new? Well an even better Crosman DPMS SBR! How can you make the Crosman DPMS SBR even better? By creating an updated or version 2 called the Bushmaster MPW. It comes in two tone black and false dark earth with a shorter hadnguard yet it keeps it’s barrel leith by extending the barrel right to the end of the mock suppressor. Tis can also swap out the but stock with any AR but stock and the Bushmaster MPW comes with a red dot sight. Internally the Bushmaster MPW and the Crosman DPMS SBR are the same.

Some of you may remember the Crosman Night Stalker CO2 Pellet Rifle? That product was retired years ago but Crosman has used the name in a new CO2 BB Pistol called the Night Stalker. The Crosman Night Stalker Pistol has a built in guide rod styled laser, has blowback operation along with a stick magazine. This should be a fun plinker with its laser sight.

Going even further back to the old Crosman 357 days, this revolver styled CO2 air pistol just seems to live on and on being revamped just a little each time by Crosman. Now you can get it in their Triple Threat package. Basically it’s the same Crosman 357 frame that comes with three barrels you can swap out as needed. You get a three inch snub nosed barrel, a six inch barrel similar to the Vigilante and then an eight inch Dirty Hairy styled barrel. Who says you can’t have it all?

My Favorite Air Rifles of 2018

1 Comment

Here we go again with another Favorite Airgun Video of 2018, this time I show you my Air Rifle Favorites! There are usually a lot less Air Rifles that come out than Air Pistols but this year was’t too bad for new and interesting Ari Rifles. As per usually there where more 4.5mm Steel BB Rifles and I am sorry to say nothing really came out at least in the Replica Air Rifle department but of course there where 6mm Airsoft rifles too.

I do mainly focus on the 4.5mm BB rifles but throw in the group a very well made and ultra realistic Airsoft Rifle that was for sure in this years Top Five!

First up on my list but not in any particular order was the Gletcher Military Precision M1944 BB Rifle styled after the Russian made Mosin Nagant. Other than the Sawn Off version the Gletcher Military Precision M1944 BB Rifle is the only CO2 Bolt Action 4.5.mm Steel BB Air Rifle you can get as far as I know. It is ultra realistic and looks the part of the real Mosin Nagant right down to the metal working Bayonet.

Next in this video I take a look at what I can say was my number one pick this year, the Crosman DPMS SBR Steel BB Rifle! When Crosman announced the Crosman DPMS SBR Steel BB Rifle at SHOT Show I was a bit surprised since Crosman is not known best for their Replica Airguns. Not only did Crosman decide to come out with an M4 Replica Air Rifle but they in fact made what I believe is the best one out there at least in 4.5mm Steel BB. It covers all the check boxes I am looking for. It’s very well made, shoots in semi and full auto with a working internal blowback bolt. All the mechanical parts work in the same way as a real M4 including being able to take apart the upper and lower receivers. I really hope Crosman took note of how popular this style of Airgun is and keeps making more product like the Crosman DPMS SBR Steel BB Rifle.

Another 4.5mm Steel BB M4 Replica that came out in 2018 is the Air Venturi HellBoy CO2 BB M4 Air Rifle. The HellBoy may not be as full featured as the Crosman DPMS SBR but it is worthy of this years Top Five. The Air Venturi HellBoy CO2 BB M4 Air Rifle is similar to how the Cybergun AK 47 BB rifles are built, using a magazine design that is basically the bulk of the working mechanism, it hold the CO2, CO2 Valve, BB’s, and even part of the trigger mechanism. The Air Venturi HellBoy CO2 BB M4 Air Rifle may not be as ultra realistic as the Crosman DPMS SBR but it’s an excellent full metal M4 Replica with decent shooting performance.

My only Airsoft contribution to this years list is the KWA LM4 RIS PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifle. I just love this Airsoft Rifle, It may not be the cheapest M4 GBB Airsoft Rifle out there but it sure is worth it. When you pick it up it just feels like quality and when you shoot it you know it’s quality, the shooting performance is awesome for a GBB Rifle. I barely noticed any cool down even when shooting off the entire magazine in full auto. If you want the most realistic M4 Air Rfile out there than the KWA LM4 RIS PTR Full Metal GBB Airsoft Rifle is going to be the one.

Last up to showcase in this years Favorite Air Rifles is the Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Weathered Submachine Gun. I know the Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Submachine Gun kinda came out last year but I did not get my hands on the Weathered version till only recently so I decided to put it in this years Top Five pick. The Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Submachine Gun is another fine 4.5mm Steel BB Rifle in this case it’s more of a Submachine Gun. The Umarex Legends MP40 CO2 BB Submachine Gun also offers semi and full auto select fire and is a very close replace to the real steel MP40 in almost every way. The Weathered Finish and included Leather Sling really finish it off to make it super believable.

Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

I finally got the chance to do my first official Field Test Shooting Video Review using the Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph and like my Test video everything went really well. I was a little bit scared since my first round through it shooting the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 was a "no read" but then the following 5 shots where all good. I think my shot placement was just a tad off on the first shot as I adjusted my aim a bit for the tore 5 shots.

So getting to the results of the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Air Rifle... I was using a somewhat used set of 12 gram CO2 cartridges that I had previously shot a couple of magazine through shooting in a bit of semi auto and full auto so I would assume I had at least half of, if not a bit more of my CO2 left in them. The Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 was also fully warmed up and it had been a day since I shot it last which lets the CO2 and the gun warm up and pretty much perform as if it was using new CO2 for the most part.

My results shooting 5 readable rounds through my Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph with the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Air Rifle where an average fps of 402 fps, the slowest being 397 fps and the fasters hitting 411 fps so not too m much of a spread. I was using RWS 5.1 grain 4.5mm zinc coated Steel BB's for my testing.

Moving on to my accuracy testing. I would like to note I was using a Red/Green dot scope which I think is a great add on for any action shooting air rifle. Shooting with the included open iron sights may not have given us a little bit different results but I don't think by too much. My first grouping was with 10 shots all in semi auto shooting mode and this resulted in a nice very close to 1 inch grouping with 8 out of the 10 shots all within about a 3/4 inch group. I then adjusted my selector switch to the much more fun full auto mode for the 15 remaining 4.5 mm Steel BB's and setup again 30 feet away. I then let her rip releasing all 15 rounds till the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 bolt locked back and to be honest I was fairly surprised at how tight my 15 round full auto group was. It only spread out to about 2 inches with not too much vertical drop so velocity remained pretty consistent which was nice to see.

All in all you really can not go wrong with the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4, it's got more than enough velocity at right around 400 fps which is great for a blowback action shooter still providing some nice accuracy not only in semi auto but also full auto shooting modes. And it has got to be the coolest looking and functioning 4.5mm Blowback BB M4 out there right now.

Testing the DJI Spark While Shooting Some Airguns

No Comments

This test of the DJI Spark Mini Drone was to make sure I could use it in the way I intended for it when I am outdoors and want to get that nice higher up flowing camera angel you can only get form a drone.. The method I use in this video doesn't even require a remote control or smartphone and I can have it take off right out of my hand.

I then use hand gestures to control the DJI Spark Drone to do things like: Place the drone in the right starting location, make the DJI Spark start recording video, have the Spark zoom up and out from me for an "eye in the sky" aerial follow me mode and then of course when I am finished what I want it to record have the DJI Sparkreturn to me and land again on my hand. Again all of this without even taking the remote out of the box or even using a smartphone to control the DJI Spark Mini Drone!

Watch me test out the DJI Spark Mini Drone in my backyard while I shoot some of my Airguns at miscellaneous targets while I walk around and have the DJI Spark follow me while recording video.

Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph First Field Test

No Comments

I am happy to say that the first Field Test using my new Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph  went really well for me today. Perhaps I have found a new brand of Chronograph that will last longer than a year or so and give me reliable results that I can count on...

In my testing I tried out four different airguns, I picked airguns for the most part that I have not done Chronograph testing with yet so I could at least get you some hard results for these new guns waiting for their Field Test Shooting Video Reviews. First I tested the Umarex Glock 19 4.5mm Steel BB Pistol and I got five results out of five shots averaging 389 fps. Next up was the AW Custom AG-HX2003 Double Stack Tactical 1911 Full Blowback CO2 BB Pistol, again a put five shots through my Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph and got five good results with an average fps of 329.

I then moved on to an Air Rifle, the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle and placed six shots through my Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph resulting in five good readings, there was one error in this string of shots but it may have been an alignment issue on my part? My average fps for the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle was 387. Last of the guns I tested was the Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol which is a single pump airgun. My pellet choice was RWS 6.9 grain lead pellets and all three of my test shots delivered near exactly the same results averaging 374 fps.

So other than that one chronograph reading error for the day which may have been an alignment issue on my part, the Caldwell Ballistic Precision Chronograph performed excellent for me. I would also like to note that I was using the same Caldwell LED Lighting System I have been using in my Sea Can Indoor Airgun range which as expected fit perfectly onto their own Chronograph system and worked well.

Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Table Top Review

5 Comments

Type: BB Rifle.
Manufacturer: Crosman.
Model: DPMS SBR.
Materials: Metal & plastic.
Weight: 6.5 pounds (4.98 kilograms).
Length: 26.9 - 30.4 inches.
Propulsion: 12 gram CO2 dual cartridges.
Action: Blowback - single action only.
Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's.
Ammunition Capacity: 25 rounds.
FPS: 430fps.
Rate of Fire: 1400 rounds per minute in full auto

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle is single action only since the charging handle must be cocked first before you can shoot it. The trigger is short and fairly light but not too light that a misfire can happen easily. The Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle makes for a great action shooter in semi auto or full auto mode!

Accuracy: So far I have only played around with the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle but I can say it feels pretty good and seems to hit what I aim at even when in full auto mode which does rock the gun a bit. Don;t expect full auto mode to be the most accurate but it sure is fun and with all those BB's coming out the barrel at 1400 rounds per minute you're probably going to hit what ever your shooting at. Because of the blowback operation you will get a little over 400 fps which is totally fine for an action shooter like this.

Build Quality: The Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle is well made all around. Weighing in at 6.5 pounds it feel solid and well built. There is a lot of metal going on inside and out of this rifle but keep in mind the top and bottom receiver are plastic but metal parts are where they need to be like in the internals, pretty much all the working parts are metal, the magazine is full metal, the buffer tub is metal and of course the barrel is metal.

Realism: The Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle is about as real as you are going to get in a CO2 Blowback M4 styled Airgun. You can even take it apart into the top and bottom receivers like the real steal version. The blowback action gives you some recoil but more importantly offers a true single action trigger and of course the full auto ability we all love. Almost all the working parts work like they would on a real M4 other than the forward assist which is moulded into the receiver.

Pros:

  • Most realistic working M4/AR 4.5mm BB Rifle out there right now.

  • Full blowback operation with both semi and full auto shooting, can feel the blowback operation rocking the gun.

  • Great weight and feel to it.

  • Almost everything works exactly like there pal steel version. (Charging handle, dust cover, bolt release, magazine release, selector switch…)

  • Duel CO2 full metal drop out magazine that holds 4.5mm steel BB’s as well.

  • Adjustable buttstock.

  • Adjustable pop-up iron sights.

  • Lots of rails of mounting additional cool hardware.

  • Included adjustable foregrip.

  • Muzzle cap looks cool too!

Cons:

  • Receiver is plastic but well made and does not compromise feel or weight since there is lots of metal throughout this gun.

  • Rear Buttstock is not compatible with the AR platform.

  • This gun is literally too much fun…

If you haven't figured it out already I love the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle and I know anyone that picks one up will love theirs too! I just wish we had them in our Replica Airguns Store but for now we are not Crosman distributes :( We do have some other nice M4/AR styled BB rifles like the HellBoy which I may put head to head against the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback BB M4 Rifle at some point even though they are very different in how they operate and their pros and cons.

In this video I have some really cool stuff to show you guys, many items I have been waiting to get my hands on for some time now...

Right off the bat I need to let you all know I got my Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB M4/AR Full Auto Airgun and it is simply awesome! It's really everything we have all been asking for, A full scale M4 Replica with Blowback operation and semi and full auto, with quality material throughout and realistic working parts. You can even split the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB M4/AR Full Auto Airgun into its upper and lower sections for cleaning and possible BB jams. Look forward to several upcoming videos featuring the Crosman DPMS SBR CO2 Blowback 4.5mm BB M4/AR Full Auto Airgun.

Next up in this weeks news is... Can you believe it, after two years I now have my hands on a Gletcher M1944 Mosin Nagant, not the short stock and short barreled M1891 Sawn Off Version but the full size rifle version complete with working metal bayonet :) I love it when I first saw it at SHOT Show over two years ago and still love it today. I expect it to shoot similarly to the M1891 Sawn Off M1891 Version I already reviewed a few times but with perhaps more power and a bit better accuracy?

Some other very cool news, we are now selling KWA Airsoft Guns, I have been a big fan of KWA for a long time and enjoy visiting their booth at SHOT Show, they have excellent high quality detailed Airsoft guns and carry a great combination of Blowback and AEG Airsoft Guns. Once I get through my Crosman and Gletcher reviews I will focus on showcasing the new KWA lineup we are selling.

Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle Field Test Review

No Comments

I had a lot of outdoor fun just playing around with the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle but a real Field Test Shooting review had to be done, maybe not as fun as my outdoor video but I still had a great time shooting the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle none the less.

So how did the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle do? Unfortunately my Chrony Chronograph bit the dust, even though it I just bought it well I guess we are going back 2 years ago but still my luck with the Chrony Chronographs has not been good :( I thought it was perhaps the battery but when I switched it out for a new one I still got the same gibberish on screen!

So I resorted to using my Airsoft Chronograph which is not ideal for testing our steel BB's and or Lead Pellets. I did get some results which gave me a three shot average of 437 feet per second, this was after shooting off a full magazine and I was having some slight CO2 leakage with my Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle? Perhaps a bad valve or seal?

When I was playing around with m y Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle outside shooting clay pigeons at a variety of distances I found it to be pretty accurate finding my targets most of the time even out to 50 feet or more. So was not too surprised when I shot a nice 1 inch 10 round grouping using a mounted red dot scope to help a little bit.

All in all the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a pretty slick Replica Rifle to own, I will be comparing it to the Crosman DPMS SBR now that one has arrived, they both have pros and cons so it will be interesting to see which one is going to be my favorite at the end of the day but I can say if you can own both then go for it! And don't forget to watch my Table Top Review for the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle where I go into some more detail and show you around up close.

SHOT Show 2018 Walk Around 360 Camera View

No Comments

I figured the best way for everyone to get an idea of what it's like to be at SHOT Show was to walk around and record some video using my Samsung Gear 360 Video Camera for you.

The first few minutes are just me walking around checking things out at this years SHOT Show 2018 in Las Vegas. After which I walk around of some of the more popular Airgun related booths: Crosman, Sig Sauer, ASG and Umarex.

If you're not able to attend SHOT Show yourself, then I hope this 360 video gives you a good idea of what it's like to be there yourself :)

SHOT Show 2018 Crosman Interview

2 Comments

I wanted to start my SHOT Show 2018 Interviews with Crosman because in my books they had one of the most exciting new products this year at SHOT Show, the Crosman Remington DPMS SBR which is a duel 12 gram CO2 powered 4.5mm steel BB firing AR styled semi and full auto Machine gun.

What I like about the Crosman Remington DPMS SBR is that it works a lot like an Airsoft Gas Blowback rifle with an internal bolt and buffer tube spring, working charging handle and dust cover, it even has a bolt release button. The Crosman Remington DPMS SBR can even be taken apart similarly to a real AR rifle.

The next new interesting product from Crosman, and as I found out the design is not entirely exclusive to Crosman, was the CO2 Non-Blowback Pellet firing 1911. The Crosman Pellet 1911 has an interesting magazine design, it looks like a traditional full size drop out magazine, which as you would expect holds the CO2 but rather than an inline BB magazine the new Crosman Pellet firing 1911 has two built in 6 shot rotary magazines that can be flipped so you essentially end up with a 12 shot magazine.

You will have to drop the full size magazine after the first 6 shots to flip the rotary magazines. The Crosman Pellet 1911 does not have blowback action but the double action only trigger is smooth and not too heavy. The slide is metal with a metal magazine and a polymer frame. The Crosman Pellet shooting 1911 comes in silver and black.

The next new product from Crosman was the Mako. The Crosman Mako is a Beretta styled CO2 Blowback BB pistol. The Crosman Mako features Blowback action, fiber optic sights, tactical grips, a double action trigger and a stick magazine that holds the 4.5mm steel BB's.

Thanks to Phillip Guadalupe from Crosman for allowing me the Interview!

Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle Field Test Shooting Review

No Comments

Another revisit for an inexpensive and fun BB shooter, the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle! I have done some previous video reviews and comparisons for the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle so make sure to check them out. I also recently did an update Field Test Shooting Video for the Daisy Red Ryder BB gun which is a very comparable airgun to the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle.

Here is a quick overview of the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle, it's designed for younger smaller shooter with it's short stock but it's still fun of all ages! You can store 700 4.5mm Steel BB's in its internal magazine and Crosman claims a max velocity of 350 fps. Like the Daisy Red Ryder the power source is a spring piston that is activated by the lever action.

Now let's talk about how the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle performed in my Sea Can Field Test Shooting test...  Crosman claims a max fps of 350, my Chronograph results came in at a 5 shot average of 316 fps which is not bad compared to the Daisy Red Ryder that also has a claimed fps of 350 but only shot around 240 fps.

So the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle is the clear winner in terms of velocity over the Daisy Red Ryder but what about accuracy? That's a different story, the Crosman did not perform all that great for me shooting at a paper target 30 feet away using a rested shooting position. I shot 10 rounds at my paper target and got about a 5-6 inch grouping, there was an underlying smaller tight group that was closer to about 3 inches but a god 3-4 of the BB's came out of it spreading out the group significantly.  Compare that to the Daisy Red Ryder with a nice tight 2 inch group.

So what do you want? Power or accuracy? I figure since the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle is really targeted of the younger more entry level shooter that it should have good accuracy so they know when they are doing it right and less concerned on if the gun is performing as it should. Sure power is fun and smashing your targets does give a certain satisfaction but you have to hit the target first :)

Both the Crosman Marlin Cowboy BB Rifle and Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun are fun airguns for sure, I guess it just comes down to which one you want to buy...

Crosman PFAM98 Taurus PT-92 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol Shooting Review

No Comments

Another 4.5mm Steel BB Field Test Shooting Review from the new Sea Can Airgun Shipping Container Shooting Range. Yes it's a Crosman but it's really made by KWC and is based on the KWC Beretta / Taurus M92. Depending on which version you get, it came in either semi auto only or semi auto and full auto selectable. The Crosman version does shoot right out of the box in both semi and full auto which is nice.

On to my performance results with the Crosman PFAM98 Taurus PT-92 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol. My feet per second velocity results using a brand new CO2 in a 22-23 celcius environment where right up around 333 fps from a 5 shot string. This is about what we are use to from KWC full blowback CO2 BB Pistols.

Moving on to accuracy, I shot 10 rounds at my paper target which is setup about 30 feet away. I was also using a rested seated shooting position with my hands and gun resting on a sandbag upfront. I did have to reset this test as one of my cameras did not cooperate the first time around and this may have effected the accuracy juts a bit as velocity spread can make the BB's spread out a bit especially high and low on target. I did get a nice 5 shot group that was in a tight under one inch group but some of the other 4.5mm Steel BB's did shot higher and lower leaving the tighter grouping.

When I put the Crosman PFAM98 Taurus PT-92 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol in full auto mode and released the last 10 or so BB's they of course sprayed the target randomly. This was expected with the heavy blowback and fast shooting.
