ROCHESTER, New York, (January 15, 2013) –Crosman Corporation, long known for innovative, high quality products for the shooting sports, has introduced three new CO2 powered 1911-style BB pistols. According to Crosman Product Manager, Tom Clark, the 1911 model is regarded as the finest service pistol design of all time. “With three new models to choose from, you can enjoy realistic features and plinking fun like never before,” says Clark.
The first, the Crosman® model GI Model 1911BBb (model 40021) CO2 powered pistol, features a full-metal frame and slide with genuine recoil action, velocities up to 450 fps, and an astonishing shot count. “The weight of this pistol adds to its authenticity,” Clark said, “while the fully functional slide and fixed sights combine for added value.” The all-metal magazine holds 20 steel BBs and drops out for convenient reloading. In addition, there is a tool built into the grip for quick and easy replacement of CO2.
The second, the TAC 1911BB pistol (model 40005), features a polymer frame and barrel lengthening mock compensator. “Enjoy up to 550 fps with the longer barrel,” said Clark. The magazine holds 20 steel BBs and drops out for quick reloading. “The pistol also comes equipped with a Class II laser you can add to the Picatinny accessory rail for faster target acquisition,” commented Clark.
The third, the Crosman 1911BB version (model 40001), features a polymer frame with a checkered grip, a Picatinny accessory rail and a removable grip panel for easy replacement of CO2.
Says Clark, “choose any of the new 1911 models and save on your range fees. You’ll pay so much less for ammo compared to conventional firearm ammo that you can afford fun target shooting all day long.”
The three new Crosman 1911-style CO2 pistols will be available at retail in spring of 2013. The Crosman model GI Model 1911BBb (model 40021) has an MSRP of $129. The TAC 1911BB pistol (model 40005), has an MSRP of $119 and the Crosman 1911BB version (model 40001) has an MSRP of $60.
