Example text

Ammunition is loaded into the pistol by means of a magazine. Pellets are loaded into a rotary magazine, which is a rotating drum-shaped magazine into which the pellets are placed, care being taken to ensure that the pellets are correctly seated with no pellet heads proud of the front of the magazine. The magazine generally goes into a housing above the trigger; this housing is accessed by means of a forward-opening slide that is operated by the slide release lever. ) To load a rotary magazine, first ensure that the hammer is down; if it isn’t, then de-cock the pistol (see ‘De-cocking’, later in this chapter).

A pre-charged pneumatic designed for pest control will cost around £400 and quite frankly you would be poorly served purchasing one of these pistols for fun shooting, as fun shooting involves a lot of fast work for which the rather large and bulky hunting pre-charged pneumatics are simply not designed. Single-Stroke Pneumatics So now we come to the single-stroke pneumatic. This also has a reservoir to contain compressed air, but it is smaller than the reservoir on a pre-charged pneumatic. Compressed air is placed in the reservoir by means of a piston that is operated by a lever fixed to the top or bottom of the pistol.

If a firearm pistol and its CO2-powered replica were placed next to one another, you would not be able to tell the two apart. If you picked them up they would have the same weight, and it is only on close examination that you would see that one is designed for live rounds and the other for CO2-powered projectiles. You can judge for yourself how realistic a CO2-powered replica is from the pictures of the H&K USPs: one is a firearm and the other a CO2 replica of the firearm, and I bet you cannot tell one from the other.
