Crosman DPMS SBR Steel BB Rifle - Full-Auto

Type: BB Rifle
Manufacturer: Crosman
Model: DPMS SBR
Materials: Metal and Polymer
Weight: 6.2 lb (2817 g)
Barrel: Smoothbore
Power Source: 2x 12g CO2 cartridges
Action: Semi-Automatic/Full-Automatic
Ammo Type: 4.5mm Steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 25 Rounds
FPS: 430

Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Crosman DPMS SBR BB 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. This M4 rifle makes for a great action shooter in semi-auto or full-auto mode!

Accuracy: My first volley was with 10 rounds in semi-auto firing mode and resulted in a tight grouping with 8 out of 10 shots landing within ¾-inches. I then adjusted the sector switch to the much more fun full-auto mode for the 15 remaining rounds and let her rip until the bolt locked back. To be honest I was fairly surprised at how tight the group was. It only spread out to about 2 inches with not too much vertical drop, so velocity remained pretty consistent.

Build Quality: The Crosman DPMS SBR is well made all around. Weighing in at 6.2 pounds, it feels sturdy and solid. There is a lot of metal both inside and out, but keep in mind the top and bottom receiver are polymer. Pretty much all the movie parts are metal, including the magazine, the internals, the buffer tube and the barrel.

Realism: The Crosman DPMS SBR is about as real as you are going to get in a blowback M4 style 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 moving parts work like they would on a real M4, other than the forward assist which is molded into the receiver.

Pros:

  • Most realistic M4/AR BB rifle on the market
  • Full blowback operation with both semi and full auto shooting
  • Fires up to 430 FPS, over 1400 rounds per minute
  • Quadrail handguard provides room for laser and light accessories
  • Equipped with angled forgrip
  • Adjustable six position butt stock

Cons:

  • Receiver is a polymer construction
  • Magazine has a limited 25rd capacity
  • Rear buttstock is not compatible with the AR platform

Comments: There's nothing not to love about the Crosman DPMS BB Rifle! The compact SBR (short barrel rifle) setup is lightweight and agile, perfect for target practice in full-auto mode. It's easy to upgrade with your choice of RIS accessories, and comes with some pre-installed features like flip-up iron sights and an angled forward grip. With an authentic single action trigger, functioning charging handle, and powerful blowback system, this gun provides an ultra-realistic M4 rifle firing experience!

A ton of fun and a ton of value

I have owned mine for only a short while, a couple weeks. I have had a TON of fun with it. If you wish to do shorter shooting sessions you have the option of only using 1 of the 2 Co2 slots. The power fall off starts to become bad by the 4th mag but I can get 3 full mags of shooting and with a little body heat can get a 4th off too (the more auto the less endurance you'll get and if you're thinking of doing a lot of full auto I'd use 2). Like most Co2 powered guns if you do a mag dump you will see the power drop noticeably but if you shoot in bursts the power stays fairly constant. The speed loader gets a lot of deserved flack for being fussy on BB's. Umarex and Daisy BB's will NOT feed through the loader but shoot fine out of the rifle. A small catch on the follower on the Mag would have made loading 100x easier. Hornady Black Diamond BB's WILL work in the speed loader. If after a few thousand it won't feed regular BB's I'll discontinue using it. I won't pay a premium to use the speed loader and frankly it's a gross oversight for Crosman not to put a notch in there. 2-3mm of milling and the entire issue with the speed loader, etc vanishes. The rifle itself is metal and plastic but feels solid and has a nice mass to it. My Red-dot mounted without issue and for a smooth bore BB fun it shoots pretty tight at 20 feet and is more than enough to deal gruesome doom on aluminum cans. I have had no failures with it despite reading some worrisome reviews elsewhere. Other than burning through my Co2 supply in a hurry I have no faults with the gun.. so far!

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 cartages 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.

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 distributers :( 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.
