Crosman Introduces New Gas Blowback BB Air Pistol

ROCHESTER, New York- Crosman® Corporation, long known for innovation and quality in products for the shooting sports, has introduced a new gas blowback air pistol, the C51, featuring a full metal slide and barrel.

Jim Masseth, Crosman Product Manager comments, “many fans of shooting air pistols value the increased realism blowback BB guns have to offer. The Crosman C51 gas blowback features the same action as a real pistol. The realistic recoil action is generated by the release of CO2 propelling the metal slide back, automatically cocking the hammer and chambering a new round,” he said. “In addition to the realistic experience they offer, this BB pistol looks and feels authentic. It’s just a lot of fun to plink with,” said Masseth.

The new CO2 blowback pistol is a semi-automatic repeater powered by a Powerlet® 12 gram CO2 cartridge. It features a comfortable polymer grip and is equipped with a front blade and rear notch sight. The C51 holds up to 20, 4.5mm BBs and resembles a standard US service pistol.

Crosman will exhibit its entire product line during SHOT Show 2011 in Las Vegas from January 18-21. Visit booth number 12740.
