Materials: Metal and polymer

Power Source: CO2
Ammo Type: 4.55(.177cal) BBs

Trigger Pull: Double action only triggers since there's no blowback action to set the trigger in single action mode. It'll be heavier than a true single-action trigger. That said, the trigger is not bad at all and can be activated very quickly for tons of fast action shooting, or at least until your 18 rounds are all gone :). I would say the trigger pull is between light and medium with a medium pull length and not that much take-up at the beginning.
Accuracy: I've played around with the Air Venturi HellBoy shooting at clay pigeons from various distances and it was surprisingly accurate for off-hand shooting. I could easily hit a clay pigeon from about 50 feet away with most shots. On a target, I shot a nice 10-inch 10-round grouping using a mounted red dot scope to help.
Build Quality: The Hellboy is made in China and some people will not like that, but I found it to be very well-built. Fit and finish are as good, if not better than any Taiwanese airgun I have reviewed, so quality control in the factory must be good. You're going to find metal parts where you would expect them to be on a real M4 (AR), like the receiver, barrel, buffer tube, magazine, carry handle, forward assist, charging handle, sling mounts, safety, and magazine release. Plastic parts are going to be the rear stock, hand guard, and pistol grip.
Realism: The Air Venturi HellBoy M4 BB Rifle is a 1 to 1 replica of the M4 or AR platform and even has some interchangeable parts like the hand guard and rear stock. You can take this gun down into the two halves, upper and lower, which makes for barrel cleaning or BB jam removal pretty easy. Even though there's no blowback action or internal bolt, you can pull the charging handle back which opens the dust cover just like the real deal. Other working moving parts are the magazine release, selector switch, forward assist, and adjustable rear stock.
Comments: Unleash hell with this CO2 powered M4 air rifle from Air Venturi! The HellBoy sports an ultra-realistic metal construction with the only polymer parts being the handguard, pistol grip, and six-position crane stock. This rifle is built for customization with a removable carry handle, rail-mount-ready handguard, and two integrated sling attachment points. With a blistering 495 FPS muzzle velocity, the HellBoy spits semi-auto fire.

Type: BB Rifle. Manufacturer: Air Venturi. Model: HellBoy. Materials: Metal & plastic. Weight: 5.2 pounds (2.4 kilograms). Barrel: 14.5 inches, smooth bore. Propulsion: 12 gram CO2 single cartridge. Action: Non-Blowback - double action only. Ammunition Type: 4.5mm steel BB's. Ammunition Capacity: 18 rounds. FPS: 495fps I think the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a super addition to the replica rifle lineup. I know we all wish it had blowback operation and shot in full auto mode too but there are trade-offs here and you can still have boat loads of fun shooting the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle even in semi auto only mode. The fact that it does not have blowback allows for some generous fps velocity and more shots per CO2. It looks really great, feels really great and shoots really great all in a mostly metal build which is what everyone has been asking for and at a reasonable price. I think the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle is a total winner and recommend it 100%. You will not be disappointed!

I had a lot of outdoor fun just playing around with the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle but a real Field Test Shooting review had to be done, maybe not as fun as my outdoor video but I still had a great time shooting the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle none the less. So how did the Air Venturi HellBoy M4 CO2 BB Rifle do? Unfortunately my Chrony Chronograph bit the dust, even though it I just bought it well I guess we are going back 2 years ago but still my luck with the Chrony Chronographs has not been good :( I thought it was perhaps the battery but when I switched it out for a new one I still got the same gibberish on screen!

When it comes to accuracy, match grade pellet pistols are going o be your best bet, not always the most powerful but they are sure good at driving pellets down range with super small groupings. The Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol is no exception to this statement and considering all that it offers it is fairly reasonably price for a match grade pellet pistol of this caliber. Right off the bat I have to admit that my Chrony Chronograph stopped working, all I get is gibberish on the screen (Strike two for Chrony!). So I was not able to get any personal Chronograph results even though I even tried using my Airsoft Chronograph without success :( I did however watch a few other Youtube Video reviews where users tested out the FPS using a similar Chronograph and the Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol should get right around 390 fps using 7 grain lead pellets, this is close to the 400 fps claimed velocity.

It's been a while since I made a just for fun shooting video, especially a multi-camera kinda tactical shooting video. Well the weather was nice, I had the perfect CO2 Air Rifle for the job, the Air Venturi HellBoy, and I need to keep things simple since I am in contest prep for a fitness show I am doing this weekend and being so low on calories and high on activity messes with the brain a little bit which makes it hard to focus.
