LOL if you look at the pictures, they show both sides, but it is only the right side reversed for the left lol

Indeed - "here's looking at the right side, butt to the left and butt to the right" - how'd they do that
if the gun isn't identical on both sides?

Regardless of the photos, it's still a great airgun at a great price.

And free shipping.

Me thinks some people are getting a bit too picky during the lockdown.

I bet we are going to see more of this as the retailers get wind of the proposed ban.

Pretty sure ALL retailers are aware of the proposed legislation & are concerned.
I was simply making a statement as to the improbability of the picture.
Not the least bit interested in the 'piece' as an addition to my flock. I have
no sub 500fps guns other than the PCP handguns. They look like nothing regulated,
but then, they still look like guns and that might be enough. :rolleyes:

This full auto replica BB gun, is probably more geared towards the replica airgun action, full auto shooters. Not the PCP target shooting crowd.

I don't think this sales is a kneejerk reaction to Bill C-21, as Cabela's would have ordered the DFE DPMS's from Crosman months ago for the sale.

Probably more of a loss-leader marketing strategy for them.

Some retailers may stop reordering more replica airguns (like Crosman Canada), but I suspect not Cabela's. They are big enough to absorb a small loss on the liquidation of their replica airgun inventory.

As I previously said, staff at my local Cabela's feel the airgun ban will not happen. Salesman was willing to bet me that it would not go thru.

Also, was speaking with an airgun retailer in Canada recently. He feels the ban will not happen, but that the law will be changed to probably require some sort of identification for replica airguns. Like the orange tip in the USA.

Man i wish i had wait 2 weeks...i paid $320 for the same gun..


Anyway, i sold mine 2 weeks later.

Things i didn't like... magazine is too small.. occasionally mine was jamming.. both mags were.

I should’ve got the mp40 instead. But i also realized that im not a big fan of fullauto

For some reason, i enjoy cocking a gun... so the only things i seem to like are rifles and old school spinning cylinder revolvers.

Looks like it is very popular, as sold out in a lot of the stores.

But still in stock online & free shipping.

I'm still undecided on buying another of the same gun, as I have one in black, that I bought more than 2 years ago. I'm really happy it, so how many of the same gun do I need, even if this is a unbelievable price.

Was going to buy this gun a couple of years ago, but bought a Sig MPX in FDE instead. Glad I did.

I bought one online today and 3 packages of the Umarex Steel BB's! Excited to get it! Now just have to wait until next payday for the spare mags! Probably going to get that larger quick reload mags!

As the expression goes - get em' while they're hot before they're gone!

Paul:

Good luck with your purchase. I can (almost) guarantee you will be happy with it. I have had one for more than 2 years (in black) & am very satisfied with it. Fun to shoot in both full & semi-auto. Never had an issue with it.

I'm getting around 100 shots using only one CO2 in the magazine, & over 200 shots with two CO2s firing in a a combination of semi & full auto. May get a bit less if only shooting in full auto.

If using just one CO2, remember to use the slot that says "first".

I have added a red dot laser, flashlight, one point sling, pistol grip sleeve, rail covers and added a mock suppressor to the threaded barrel. I have a red dot scope for it, but have not installed it, as I find the gun is accurate with just the included popup iron sights, on my 24 ft. basement range.

Just a couple of tips. To ensure a jam free, full auto experience, might want to try using the Umarex Hornady Black Diamond BBs.

And I was not impressed with the larger quick reload magazine. I found that you need to remove it to do a complete reload, and found reloading faster with the regular magazine & the included speedloader. Have never has a jam in the speedloader when using Black Diamond BBs. So maybe save a little money and just buy another regular magazine. If you just want to shoot with one magazine & the two CO2's. Use 2 regular mags. and put one CO2 in each. Makes for faster reloads & allows the CO2 in each mag. to warm up a little in between uses. It also allows you to practice your quick mag swap technique.
