Crosman Corporation announced a new full auto air rifle that is based on the DPMS PDW design. Yes – full auto fire in your backyard for less money than a tax stamp would cost on the transfer of a full auto firearm.
The Crosman DMPS SBR has a rate of fire of 1,400 rounds per minute. Assuming you could keep it fed, you would zip through a 6,000 count bottle of Copperhead BBs in less than 5 minutes. As it is, the gun feeds from a 30-round magazine.
Air power comes from a pair of 12 gram CO2 cartridges. These are contained in the magazine as well.
The gun has an AR compatible pistol grip, so you can upgrade to your favorite Magpul or Bravo Company grip if you so desire. A quad rail lets you add a light or laser, and the 6-position stock adjusts to match the size of the shooter. The gun even has details like a forward assist and dust cover.
Ok, I know some shooters look down on airgun enthusiasts, but I do not. Airguns are a great way to teach kids responsibility with arms and to get in some shooting time in your own backyard. Also, some of the better air rifles are perfectly suitable for hunting small game and pest control.
While I wouldn’t try to take out a rabbit with the Crosman DPMS SBR, I sure could have a lot of fun with my son knocking down soda bottles or cutting up an old pumpkin. For me, that is more than reason enough to own one of these. The MSRP is $179.99.
