Accuracy: Air Venturi claims close to 425 FPS so I was surprised to only average only 335 FPS. Perhaps the CO2 did not pierce as well as it could have, but it does get the job done when shooting target 20-30 feet away. In terms of accuracy, I was very pleased. It made up for the slower than expected FPS by getting a sub 1 inch 10 round group. I am not a big fan of peep sights so I was not expecting these results. Right out of the box, the M1 Carbine shot pretty close to the bullseye, just slightly to the left and about 1-2 inches high. The rear sight is adjustable for elevation so that can be easily taken care of.
Comments: Hold a piece of history in your hands with the Springfield Armory M1 Carbine BB Rifle. This authentic replica of the storied U.S. military rifle used throughout WWII looks, feels, and shoots like the real steel rifle. Choose from realistic hardwood or save money without sacrificing performance with a faux wood stock. With a muzzle velocity averaging at 425 FPS, you can expect to get nearly 40 shots per CO2 cartridge with the M1 Carbine Air Rifle. Also available as an airsoft version.
