SIG Sauer's new MCX Virtus pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) Air Rifle (MSRP: $349.99) is now shipping.
The HPA bottle inside the synthetic stock is intended to be filled with compressed air only. Also notice the folding sights. This would make a good trainer and/or varmint gun.

MCX Virtus PCP semi-automatic air rifle includes a 30-round rapid pellet magazine and 17.5-inch barrel with M-LOK handguard for mounting accessories.

The air cylinder is refillable and can deliver up to 150 shots per fill.
