Yep, these precision shooters are ready. How about a a CO2-powered SBR feeling and acting just like your “real” gun? It sets up exactly the same and suddenly you can run drills in your back yard! From targets to expendables, here’s a tiny sneak peek at what’s new!

Remember plinking cans with a Daisy when you were young? With the Daisy Rocket Shot you activate the fun by shooting the bottom target to release the spring. This shoots the can into the air, so one shooter can push the “button” and the other shooter can shoot the can out of the air. Or you can fine tune your own skills. Repeat as required!

SIG SAUER’s MPX SBR uses 90 Gram C02 cylinders, a “real” magazine for pellets and controls mirroring the real gun. At first — and second look — your brain just doesn’t believe this isn’t the real thing! It’s great fun, as fast as you can pull the trigger! The 1911 Spartan (L) and P320 (R) also mirror SIG’s “real” guns offering training — and fun — opportunities galore. SIG also supplies branded gas cartridges, pellets and BB’s so you get SIG quality at every step.

SIG’s broad line of reactive targets for airguns are high quality, challenging and downright fun. After these pretty pics were taken, the targets have lived hard lives “out back” and keep coming back for more. Always wear safety glasses or, like your mom always said: “You’ll shoot your eye out!” The SIG Max Michel BB 1911 is there for size.
