Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Crosman R1 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 real fun happens with the Crosman R1 CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun when you switch it over to full auto mode and with just one pull and hold of the trigger you empty the 25 round magazine in mere seconds.
Accuracy: Make sure to checkout my Filed Test Shooting Video for the Crosman R1 CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun where I test out the Crosman R1 CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun using my Chronograph where I get an average of 385 fps and a nice 30 foot grouping of right around 1 inch in semi out and a decently tight full auto group of about 3-4 inches.
Build Quality: The Crosman R1 CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is well made all around. Weighing in at 6 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 R1 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 AR / M4 other than the forward assist which is moulded into the receiver.
The Crosman R1 CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is really pretty much the same as the Crosman DPMS SBR and Crosman MPW with more or less Cosmetic changes. Like the Crosman MPW the Crosman R1 has an AR compatible Rear stock and pistol grip, the Crosman R1 CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is the only Crosman AR Full Auto CO2 BB Rifle that has the ability to change out the flash hider, you can even put a mock suppression or in it if you choose to. No matter which of the Crosman AR Full Auto CO2 BB Rifles you chooses to get they are mechanically every similar and share most of the same parts. I would say the Crosman R1 CO2 Blowback BB Machine Gun is the most customizable to date but they are all fantastic Air Rifles!
