One of SIG Sauer's newest offerings in its air gun lineup is modeled after the 1911 designed and used by World Speed Shooting Champion and Team SIG Capt. Max Michel, Jr.

“When it comes to shooting, consistent training is invaluable, whether you are a member of law enforcement, the military or are a responsible citizen carrying to protect your family,” Michel, Jr. said. “Despite this, many people don’t have the time, opportunity or finances to train as much as they should.  The 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol gives you the flexibility to train anywhere, anytime with measurable results."

The Max Michel 1911 BB pistol is sized to fit all current 1911 holsters and features the same fire controls and weight as a traditional 1911. In addition, the gun features a full-metal slide and frame and features a blowback action to simulate conditions found when firing a traditional firearm. The system is intended to provide an interesting and fun training tool for all levels of shooters.

"Dry-fire training is always recommended, but can be boring and sometimes misleading," Michel, Jr. said. "This is a great way for those who typically shoot a 1911-style pistol to work on accuracy, speed and drawing from concealment.”

The BB pistol contains a 16-round magazine that holds .177 (4.5 mm) steel BBs. The gun also features a cam-lever CO2 loading port to ease the installation of 12-gram COcartridges. SIG claims that the pistol will fire BBs up to a speed of 410 fps, depending on temperature and altitude.

The Max Michel 1911 BB pistol retails at a suggested price of $110.99.
