    Here’s SIG AIR’s announcement in full:

    SIG SAUER is pleased to introduce the new SIG AIR ProForce MCX Virtus airsoft rifle. Designed and engineered for professionals and discerning recreational shooters, the MCX is the latest offering from the rapidly growing SIG AIR division of SIG SAUER.

    “The SIG AIR ProForce MCX Virtus is a very effective, safe training tool for professionals and avid target shooters that replicates the look and feel of its firearm counterpart, making it an ideal option for training in a myriad of environments where live fire is not possible,” said Matt Handy, Director, SIG AIR. “This is an exciting product for SIG AIR because, like the MCX, it’s completely modular and can be easily configured for multiple variations or load-outs based on purpose.”

    The SIG AIR ProForce MCX Virtus airsoft rifle is a battery-powered, automatic electric gun (AEG) that runs on a rechargeable battery. The airsoft rifle features an adjustable “hop-up” creating a spin on the BBs for additional stabilization in flight, resulting in increased distance and accuracy. Equipped with interchangeable springs for velocity enhancement, the SIG AIR ProForce MCX Virtus has three fire control modes (safe, semi-automatic, and automatic). The included magazine holds 120 rounds of 6mm polymer or biodegradable BBs, with a velocity up to 370 fps and muzzle energy of 1 joule (using a .20-gram polymer BB.)

    Here are the specs for the new ProForce MCX Virtus Airsoft Rifle:

    • Total Length: 30”
    • Barrel Length: 11.5”
    • Weight: 6.5 lbs
