    I've spent most of the evening playing with my new Crosman DPMS SBR full auto BB rifle. I have owned most of the full auto firearm BB clones but this one has them all beat. Looks and feels like a real M4. Fire controls are the same. 430fps with Daisy zink plated BBs and 445pps with Hornady black diamonds. Gets around 160 power shots with two CO2 bulbs. Very accurate and can keep all shots in an inch at 30ft on semi auto. Comes with a speed loader that has received some bad reviews. I could not get it to work with the Daisy BBs but with the black diamonds it was flawless. The gun itself ran both BBs without a burp. For $169 this was a great deal.

    Very realistic looking shooter for sure! Cool that it's accurate too.

    I was surprised and pleasantly surprised at the accuracy. I had a quality red dot mounted which helped. The gun just has a good solid feel. You do have to maintain some trigger control as the 1400rpm can empty a magazine really fast.

    I have a good number of replicas but that's one I don't have yet, but I am keeping an eye out for a good sale price. A lot of the replicas shoot better than I expected too. With my Colt Peacemaker pellet version I get 4-6" groups at 35 yards without much drop which kind of shocked me. I thought at that distance off hand standing the group would be much bigger.

    I just picked one of these up this week. It was delivered on Tuesday. I'm very happy with it! I've been shooting mostly semi-auto, but the fun switch makes me giggle every time I empty a mag. Great fun for backyard shooting and I agree it's more accurate than I thought it would be.

    Now if they would just make some extended magazines - maybe 50 rounds - to really take advantage of the full auto feature. Spare mags are kind of pricey at $50 each, but they seem to be well made.

    Just ordered one based on a video posted on another forum. To heck with 50, I can already see a drum mag holding say six co2's and a heck of a lot of BB's. Need to see if I need to start from scratch of maybe use parts of an original mag. Then again, three mags clipped together would make it fun too.

    Okay. It arrived yesterday. Got it out today. This thing is just flat fun. I haven't done anything full auto since the 70's. Amazingly accurate in semi auto, didn't really expect that. But the issue sights pretty much suck. But it's got plenty of rail space for just about anything you could imagine. The adjustable butt is nice and works, heck it even comes all the way off if you want.
    I should mention that it is without a doubt the heaviest BB gun I've ever had. And, it actually has some recoil. The mag is rather heavy but nothing untoward. One problem with the mag, I've already had to buy two more. Oh, the mag does load pretty fast with the supplied speed loader. Without the loader it's a fumble fingered exercise for me.
    I'd seen videos where they recommend one BB over another. A couple said the Daisy BB's gave problems. Well all I had on hand were Daisy's so I loaded them up and nary a problem. Well, there is one problem. I need more BB's :D
    On full auto it actually shreds things, and tries to walk a bit. Didn't really expect that either. But since the "bolt" actually recoils it kind of makes sense. I didn't bother to set up the chrono yet, but I'm curious as to where it is compared to the advertised FPS. At reasonable ranges I imagine it would take out rats and such quite well. It's really too bad the shipyard shutdown 40 years ago. A row of roosting pigeons would be interesting.
    So there you have it. I declare it the most fun one can have without gunpowder. 8) 8)

    You will find the velocity right up there with the stated figures. The Daisy BB shoot fine from the mag but jam up the speed loader at least it did mine.

    I've been conjuring one up. Four CO2's and at least 100 BB's We'll see.

    Got mine today. Put a cheap green dot on it that I had laying around. Works great. So does the loader, after I figured out how to use it. If there's directions in the included instructions, I haven't found them yet. I got 240 or so shots from my first two CO2 powerlets, using Hornady Black Diamonds.

    What are you guys using for oil for the tops of the powerlets?

    Their oil is one sticking point in the air gun world......it is really expensive for what you get.....there are other things out there that will work just as well.

    do some research.....anything that says dino oil take with a grain of salt......IMHO dino was fine back in the day with leather and such seals....now it is a no go.....all kinds of stuff that could take days to research it all.
