In partnership with DPMS Panther Arms, Crosman Corporation announced the introduction of its all-new DPMS SBR full-auto CO2 rifle for 2018, giving airgun fans an awesome piece of gear for training and all-around fun.

“The riflespeaks for itself,” Crosman Product Manager Philip Guadalupe said. “It’s one of the most badass air rifles on the market.”

Built to simulate the PDW short-barreled rifle designed and sold by DPMS Panther Arms, the Crosman SBR full-auto CO air rifle includes all of the tactical features users would expect to find on a full-fledged firearm, including a six-position collapsible stock, AR-style pistol grip and Picatinny rails for accessory attachments. The airgun also comes with an angled fore-grip and flip-up iron sights.

Of course, the heart of this CO2 rifle is the magazine, which holds 30 BBs for the simulated capacity of a full AR-15 magazine. The magazine also stores two 12-gram CO2 canisters that power the air rifle in both semi-automatic and fully automatic modes. With the selector switch on the full-auto mode, this DPMS SBR airgun pumps rounds out at an incredible 1,400 rounds per minute.

The Crosman DPMS SBR full-auto CO2 rifle is perfect as a training tool for users looking to build their skills with an AR-15, and the airgun includes realistic controls and features that help users practice their rifle-handling with ease. The gun is weighted to provide a similar feel and balance as a loaded AR-15 and comes with a blowback bolt and an ejection-port dust cover.

Control-wise, the gun uses similar handling features as the real deal, coming equipped with a forward assist, charging handle, magazine release and selector switch all located in the same position as found on standard AR rifles.

With full CO2 canisters installed, the gun shoots BBs at a maximum velocity of 430 fps. The suggested retail price on the new Crosman DPMS PDW full-auto CO2 rifle is $179.99.
