SIG Sauer has introduced the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol. Modeled after the 1911 Spartan centerfire pistol, this CO2-powered, semi-automatic 1911-style BB pistol sports a unique bronze finish. The slide is engraved with the original Greek words "MOLON LABE" which means "Come and Take Them," and the grip is emblazoned with the Spartan helmet. Designed for high-performance, this air pistol also features a full-metal slide and frame with realistic blowback action of the metal slide, and a 16-round magazine that holds 4.5mm steel BBs. Additionally, the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol is designed to fit in current 1911 holster systems, and has the same weight and controls of a traditional 1911 firearm.
“Training is a must for all shooters, regardless of skill level, and this new SIG Sauer 1911 Spartan BB Pistol is an effective training tool for beginners and experts alike,” said Joseph Huston, vice president and general manager of the SIG Sauer Air Gun Division. “Our air guns are an inexpensive alternative to live-fire training for those who want to practice but can’t make it to the range as often as they would like, and the fact that the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol fits in a regular 1911 holster allows shooters to practice drawing in addition to accuracy.”
The 1911 Spartan BB Pistol has the same skeletonized trigger as its centerfire counterpart. There is also a cam lever CO2 loading port for easy and quick loading of the 12-gram CO2 cartridges. The 1911 Spartan BB Pistol shoots up to 410 fps; however, velocity results may vary depending on temperature and altitude.
Like the 1911 Max Michel BB Pistol, the 1911 Spartan BB Pistol allows newer shooters to learn the basics about in a controlled, comfortable, quiet and safe environment.
