Today we look at the velocity of the ISSC M22 BB pistol from Air Venturi. As small as the pistol is, it will be difficult to get a lot of velocity from it, because barrel length is important to a CO2 powerplant. Air Venturi rates it at 400 f.p.s., so let’s see how close they got.
Air Venturi Copper-Plated Steel BBs
First up were some Air Venturi Copper-Plated Steel BBs. Why not shoot Air Venturi BBs in this Air Venturi gun? The first step was to install a CO2 cartridge, which was straightforward. I used the combination tool provided to tighten the tension screw and the cartridge sealed just fine. Naturally I used a drop of Crosman Pellgunoil on the tip of the cartridge to lubricate the internal seals.
