Crosman Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in products for the shooting sports, introduces two new gas blowback air pistols, each featuring a full metal frame, slide and barrel.
Jim Masseth, Crosman Product Manager comments, “many fans of shooting air pistols value the increased realism blowback BB guns have to offer.” The Crosman gas blowbacks feature the same action as real pistols. The realistic recoil action is generated by the release of CO2 propelling the metal slide back, automatically cocking the hammer and chambering a new round. In addition to the realistic experience they offer, these BB pistols look and feel authentic. “They’re a lot of fun to plink with,” said Masseth.
Both of the new CO2 blowback pistols are semi-automatic repeaters equipped with front blade and rear notch sights. The new C41BB is modeled after the famous German pistols of WWll and features an ambidextrous, checkered, wood grained grip and an 18-round magazine. The C51BB holds up to 20, 4.5mm BBs and resembles a standard US service pistol with a comfortable polymer grip. Each model is powered by Powerlet® 12 gram CO2 cartridges, and includes lever slide lock type safeties.
