Cleveland, Ohio (July 29, 2019) Airgun industry innovator Air Venturi is now shipping the latest product of its collaboration with renowned firearms producer Springfield Armory: a .177-cal., CO2-powered BB-gun version of the iconic WWII-era M1 Carbine.
The Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine is a faithful BB-firing replica of the iconic firearm that saw service with U.S. troops and allies in World War II through the Vietnam War and beyond. It’s a semi-automatic carbine that features a realistic blowback action. Every time the trigger is pulled, the rifle discharges the BB in the chamber, the bolt slides back and the next round is seated in the breech, ready to go – just like the original.
The Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB replica is powered by a single 12-gram CO2 cartridge and gets about 40 good shots from a full one. It features a full-metal, 15-round drop-free magazine, which also houses the CO2 power plant. It even weighs about as much as the .30-caliber version – just over 5 ½ pounds – and achieves muzzle velocities of up to 425 feet per second using steel BBs. It incorporates a metal upper receiver into a synthetic, wood-look stock, with a genuine wood-stock upgrade available.
Fans of historically significant firearms that want to bring that flavor into their airgun arsenal, or even own the original firearm and want an affordable replica for at-home target practice, this is the airgun they’ve been waiting for.
