Springfield Armory M1 Carbine .177 Cal. Steel BB Rifle - CO2




Total: $279.99

Type: BB Rifles
Manufacturer: Air Venturi
Model: M1 Carbine
Materials: Metal and wood
Weight: 2.59 kg (5.7 lb)
Length: 90.93 cm (35.8 in)
Barrel: 438.15 mm (17.25 in), smoothbore
Power Source: 12 g CO2 x 1
Action: Semi-automatic, blowback, double action
Ammo Type: 4.5mm steel BBs
Ammo Capacity: 15 rounds
FPS: 425

Buy the magazine: AVT1052

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.

Pros:

  • Authentic replica of M1 Carbine used by U.S. Military
  • Comes in synthetic wood and hardwood stock variants
  • Metal and wood construction give rifle realistic weight
  • Mounts for attaching a sling
  • Full metal drop-free magazine holds up to 15 rounds
  • Adjustable rear sight for windage

Cons:

  • Heavyweight gun can be tiring to hold for long durations
  • Front sight can't be adjusted

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.

First off we have the Springfield Armory M1 Carbine Rifle. You will be able to get it in either 4.5mm Steel BB or 6mm Airsoft versions. Both will have full drop out metal magazines that hold the 12 gram CO2 and either 15 BB or Airsoft rounds. You can expect around 40-60 shots per CO2 since the Springfield Armory M1 Carbine is a full blowback Airgun. The standard version will come with a synthetic wood stock that is very believable but for around $100 more you will have the option of a real wood stock which does add a bit to more weight to the rifle.

Continuing on with some more Springfield Armory Airguns. Air Venturi will be distributing the XDM pistol in a compact and full size configuration, again both 4.5mm Steel BB and Airsoft versions. There will be a solid black version and a two tone silver slide version so lots of options to pick from. The 4.5mm Steel BB version will use a 12 gram CO2 while the Airsoft version will allow for Green Gas or CO2 mags.

It felt like Christmas the other day when a bunch of Springfield Armory new products showed up at my door! So first off thanks to Air Venturi for sending me these new products for review. I already got my hands on the Springfield Armory XDM 3.8 and 4.5 GBB Airsoft version but have been wanting to also review the CO2 Blowback Steel BB versions.

Air Venturi not only sent me a Springfield Armory CO2 Blowback BB 3.8 all black and 4.5 Silver slide but also the Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 Blowback Steel BB . As an added bonus I also received the wood stock for the M1 Carbine and the Springfield Armory 1911 CO2 Blowback Steel BB Pistol which I had no idea was even available!

In this video I show all these new Springfield Armory CO2 Blowback BB guns quickly but will of course be making dedicated Table Top and Fired Test Shooting Video for them upcoming.

Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle Field Test Review

Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle Field Test Review

Lots of CO2 BB Rifles getting reviewed these days and that’s kind of awesome, I remember a few years back and we barely had any realistic Replica BB rifles available to us. Now we have an ever increasing list of choices from Historical to Modern.

Todays Field Test Shooting Video focusses on the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle, I have not done my Table Top Video yet for it but I did make a preview video where I show it around a bit and talk about some basic specs. In short the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle is a CO2 powered semi auto 4.5mm Steel BB firing replica of the Springfield Armory M1 Carbine. It holds the CO2 and 15 rounds of Steel BB’s in its full size drop out metal magazine. Available with a plastic or upgraded wood stock.

For the Field Test Shooting part of this review I tested out the power and accuracy of the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle by first shooting 5 rounds through my Chronograph to establish the Feet Per Second velocity. I then placed a fresh paper target 30 feet downrange, while using a rested and seated shooting position I fired off 10 rounds into the target to see how tight of a group I can get with the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle. I used a brand new CO2 along with 5.1 grain 4.5mm Zinc coated Steel BB’s. The temperature was a conservative 22 degrees Celsius or 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

During my Chronograph velocity test I was a bit surprised to only obtain an average of 335 fps from the Air Venturi Springfield Armory M1 Carbine CO2 BB Rifle. Air Venturi claims closer to 425 so I am not sure why it was nearly 100 fps lower than claimed but perhaps the CO2 did not pierce as well as it could have, that said 335 fps does get the job done when shooting targets 20-30 feet away....
