What is the length of the "short barrel"? And what was the ambient temperature when the 430 fps shot was made and was it a 5.1 gr BB, or less? Thanks
Are the following parts compatible with AR Parts: the charging handle, Take down pins, Magazine release, Buttstock and Safety selector. Thanks
What size case will this gun fit in ?
Has Crosman mentioned anything about a product recall for the DPMS or, other option in order to fix all of the problems everyone is experiencing ?
Not that I have heard
I'm still not sure about the barrel diameter, there seems to be conflicting answers. I want to add a barrel extender/mock silencer and need to know if it's 12mm or 14mm. If it is in fact 12mm does anyone know what adapter is an exact match and where to buy it?
The barrel is 14mm CCW I purchased a suppressor from Wish and it works like a charm
Has anyone had problems with the bolt locking back on last shot?
Mine will do that when it gets low on co2 [I'm guessing that's what's happening, otherwise something else is going on] If I manually pull the charging lever I can get more shots. I do this a few times until they're completely empty but I'm not sure if it's going to be a problem in the future.
Can't say I have. Mine is still functioning perfectly.
YAY, pre-order for extra mags has begun.
Sorry to be annoying but how long is the muzzle device and how long is the acuall barrel? I want to make a funtioning supressor. Im pretty sure the barrel threads are 14mm counter clockwise(14mm-)
I have had this gun less than a week and I think it is great, but the magazine started not to empty the second co2 cartridge properly. The power would get weak and the #1 cartridge would be almost empty, but plenty in the second. Then when I would load a new #1 cartridge, it would leak gas through the #2 cartridge before i could get it pierced. I have contacted Crosman. I do not know when I will get a replacement. Crosman indicated maybe 4 to 5 weeks. Kind of dissapionted on this. If I could see a parts blow up of the mazagine I think I could fix it.....kinda of a bummer for such a cool gun,, It was great for about 750 rounds.
I have put approximately 600 rounds through my new DPMS, and it now too, is not discharging the second CO2 cylinder. As a matter of fact, each time I have unscrewed the second (right sided cylinder), I has been completely charged. No gas had been expended. That truly is a disappointment, as the rifle is everything else I expected it to be!
Mine started to do the same but hadn't reached that point yet I'm still waiting on my replacement gun from Crosman been about 2 weeks
John. How is the check valve configured on the second Co2 assembly?
I discovered the problem with the magazine. The piercing cone on the Co2 chamber is being blocked and or constricted not allowing the Co2 liquid through the opening. The metal used for the piercing cones I believe is inferior and can bend easily. I took a close look at me DPMS magazine, keep in mind I have only ran about 6 Co2's through this. The number 2 piercing cone looked bent, obstructed and/or blocked. I have repaired one of these on a Crosman Comrade AK. Same exact problem with the DPMS magazine. It is very easy to remove these. Three Philip screws on the magazine then a large screw driver to remove the retaining screw, then remove the seal and the piercing cone comes out. I took a small diameter drill bit and opened up the hole in the #2 piercing cone back to its original diameter, reassemble it and now, 150 good shots. I believe this may be a temporary fix in that the cones may tend to bend again. An easy fix would be replacement cones and seals. I made PA aware of the defect and I will be contacting Crosman as well.
Ironically my gun is doing the same thing...sounds like a design flaw in the magazine.
How thick is the muzzle device/supressor in inches. Im just asking for diameter of the supressor.
Is the stock Supressor an over the barrel type?
Yes, it is over the barrel, but not a suppressor. You will need an adapter to make airsoft suppressors fit.
There is no stock suppressor....it just looks like one.
Hi any suggestions on what to do if the charging handle is stuck & won't cock back even when everything is in place & bolt carrier is also installed correctly? Also what mock suppressor would i need for the threaded barrel & can I extend the barrel with a smooth bore mock suppressor? Would that effect the range? Also can i change out the charging handles & Dust covers?
I did that exact same thing, I thought the gun screwed up, no, I screwed up!
Yes, 14mm CCW Thread
Simple fix. You installed the round piece, in the bolt above the charging handle backwards. It has flat side at one end. Make sure that it forward, closest to the front of the gun when you reassemble.
Any 14mm I believe
I contacted Crosman regarding extra mags and was told they should be available in mid September. I sure hope so.
That is what I have heard as well
will the crossman 0290 red dot sight work with this particular model
No, try this one: UTG Quick Aim Electronic Dot...
Guys The speedloader Works beautifully get you a small bottle of black hornadays to break the speed loader in and then after that everything runs smooth even the bigger steel daisies. My copperheads now running beautifully. Broke it in with a half a 1500 bottle of the black hornys
But stock buttpad is hard plastic though. Any suggestions for replacing or adding a softer buttpad? Unfortunately there's no obvious way to remove only the buttpad. Gun is otherwise absolutely fantastic.
In case anyone is interested, the LimbSaver Snap-On Recoil Pad works great
my new DPMS SBR stopped shooting it just clicks when you pull a trigger had CO2 in it and cocked it nothing happened
I had this same problem straight out of the box. Id flip the seal, get one shot out of it, and it wouldnt work again. So, i took it all apart again, this time i took the firing pin completely out, put just a drop of super glue where the seal sits, let it dry, put it all back together and it works beautifully. Havent had a problem since.
UPDATE I rotated my "Green" Blow-back seal. I went to shoot the rifle and after 1 round it would not fire. I opened up the rifle and discovered the seal was backwards again. I didn't think is was possible! I removed it and rotated it again. The rifle fired one round and again would not fire. I opened up the rifle again and the seal was backwards. What was happening is the seal just rotates and when this happens it creates more space in which the striker (i.e. firing pin) will not make contact with the Co2 release valve. This is a design flaw with the seal. The seals were never actually put on backwards as Crosman claimed, they just rotated. If it was put on backwards originally the rifle would have never fired from the beginning. Ambient temperature affects how easy the seal rotates as well as the spring pressure in the stock tube. In speaking with Crosman they advised they have a "clip" that can be placed on the striker pin to keep the seal from rotating. Haven't tried it yet
Hi John, this article might help you there is a problem with the green seal on some of these
john, take the bolt group out and reverse the green seal on the firing pin. I had the same exact problem.
Blowback mannequinism seal is trash most likely a defect in the way it's designed, and the worst part is you cannot find replacement seals anywhere I have searched. If I had to replace a seal once a week it wouldn't even bother me that much even though that's insane for $180 gun
John, need to return it to Crosman for a replacement sounds like...
sounds like the striker isn't hitting the valve on the mag. Take the gun apart and see if the blowback seal is still seated, if not, re-seat it and you should be good to go.
So what can I do to fix it
The spring riding the firing pin in the bolt carrier group has already broken after 300 rounds. Still waiting on customer service to reply to my email. Anyone else having problems with no CO2 pressure, the bolt locking up while firing, or the spring breaking?
Yes yes and yes. Is a major defect in the blowback mechanism, and the way the seals seats in it I have all the same issues, the seals eventually get worn out and will no longer seat properly I've had my gun for not even a week.
Ok, I got 1 shot off then the gun did not cycle. I pulled back the charge handle to cock it and got a dead click when I pulled the trigger but no shot. The striker is not hitting the valve and the green blow back seal is loose on the striker. How do I fix this?
Hi Peter try this article and see if it helps you, sounds like the same issue.
You just need to re-seat the seal on the striker and you should be all good to go
Can the muzzle end cap be removed to put on a mock suppressor?
Yes. I used a thread adapter and put an airsoft suppressor on mine. The dpms threads are smaller than 14mm, I believe they are 12 mm cc, but after the adapter, they will be 14mm cw.
From what I have read, it is threaded counter clockwise, 14mm. So there should be a lot of airsoft suppressors that fit.
Anybody else have the magazine go bad less than 24 hours after getting the gun?? Or am I the only one? Edit: so after a little research the seal for the blowback mechanism comes loose once you figure out how the parts work you can replace the seal in the proper position and it'll fire again. But it was not firing as strong so I replaced the seal with a fresher one I had laying around and I got all my power back, but super disappointed after less than 24 hours I had to go through this
No probs with the seal yet, but the spring in the mag sticks back and the plastic plunger on the speed loader broke. Also very disappointed.
how strong is the handguard? is it durable enough to put it on my AR 15? what about the stock? is it interchangeable?
Very strong, but I wouldn't attempt to put it onto a real steel AR. Plastic with that kind of heat.....no thank you
Can the side rails be removed?
Yep, just use a flat head screw driver, they come right off.
Yes, it looks like they can be
I got my rifle today, all I can say is WOW. Only thing missing is MORE MAGS. WHEN do we get to order them
Should be up for pre-orders soon, won't be available for a month or two though, least that's what I was told
3 magiznes and it completely stopped functioning!
Michael take a look at this article and see if it helps.
So how do we go about fixing this? Because after my 8th magazine less than 24 hours after receiving it my seals went bad as well. Pretty sure it's the right seal in the mag but could be the striker as well or both. EDIT: for me it was the blowback mechanism seal, I pulled it apart reset it and the gun fired again at about half power, luckily I had a fresh seal laying around swapped it out and got all my power back, but very disappointed less than 24 hours after receiving the gun I had to deal with this
You can take it apart. If the gun just goes click when you pull the trigger, it's likely the seal for the blowback mechanism. It's possible that if it's loose it is keeping the striker from hitting the valve and letting out CO2.
I OWN A UMEREX AUTO AND IT'S FUN TO SHOOT BUT LIKE THIS ONE I'D LIKE TO SEE THEM ADAPTED TO A REFILLABLE CANISTER LIKE THE PAINTBALL GUNS MAKING THEM MORE FUN AND AFFORDABLE TO SHOOT.
You can purchase a "CO2 To HPA" adapter and run any size HPA/CO2 tank you want.
When will extra mags be available? Thanks
It's looking like they'll be up for pre-order soon, but probably won't be in for another month or two.
Oh my goodness, this gun is amazing. It feels like my real AR'S. This is for real. I am stunned at the quality and heft of this gun. Just outstanding. We'll see how it holds up, but I'm telling you this is a solid AR rifle. The fun switch, OMGOODNESS. So, can you tell I am stoked? :)
I love mine! Added a forward grip and red dot site, so much fun to shoot!
I agree Paul. Very impressed with mine so far too
is there a mock suppressor for this gun?
14 mm will NOT fit. I had to use a 12 to 14 mm adapter on mine.
Any airsoft 14mm CCW Barrel Extension will work.
Not that I have seen, but it's brand new, so maybe someone will come up with something
is the muzzle device removable?
Screw clockwise to take off and counterclockwise to screw on.
Yes, I mounted a 14mm CCW Hive Barrel extension...Sweet
Couldn't get mine off. Thinking not without damaging the gun
So now that my order has finally shipped ( I have a tracking number) how do I get my hands on more magazines?????
PA will get them listed online once there is an ETA from Crosman
When will additional Magazines be available,,,,,,,W/ a "Shooter" like this,,,,,,You'll definitely Need More than ONE!
Still waiting on that info from Crosman. I agree, an extra mag or two is a must!
Why would a dual CO2, full auto BB rifle have the BB feeder in with the CO2 magazine so a shooter can't quickly and affordably reload like with a drop out stick BB magazine ? Even the cheap junk Steel Storm has a fixed 30 round mag fed by a 300 round reservoir...
Good luck getting your hands on a second or 3rd mag. Not to mention they're probably going to be between 30 and $40 a piece plus shipping
It's a full auto gun, are you really only going to run with one magazine anyway? The fact that the entire mag houses the CO2 and BBs gives it both a realistic weight and function.
Does anyone know if the pistol grip is interchangeable with a regular AR grip? I don't like the A2 style and would install something else if I could.
Yes any mil-spec ar grip will work.
Please say what the warranty terms are. Please say if there is a repair service for out-of-warranty problems....Thanks Joe LaCava
It says right at the top of the page, 5 year warranty. That is offered through Crosman, so any of their warranty service centers would be able to help you out
will it work with the copper coated BBs with lead core, the low ricochet ones? H&N Smart shot.
I use those new Dust Devil BB's and I've used Copper Head BB's. No problem with either.
I have verified that it does in fact work with Smart Shot copper coated, lead BBs without a problem!
Because it has a magnet in the magazine, I don't think so
Does the bolt release work, like on an AR?
In the display video the guy said it comes with a speed loader, is this true?
Yes, one comes in the box.
They have promised in two separate promotional videos, speedloader would change the entire fun effect of this gun, so I hope so
I have not seen one yet
Why is this product being delayed? The estimate stick date keeps changing. Once that date comes around it delayed again to a different date
Haven't heard a reason yet. This is becoming par for the course for a lot of new products it seems. Wondering if it's the manufacturers reacting to a higher than anticipated demand or something else.
So far once a week since the announcement of this thing they have pushed the date back. Why? This is concerning. I have been on pre-order for a month now
It hasn't been once a week, though it can feel like that. Haven't heard a legit reason as to why there has been the delay, but have been told that this latest update (early July) came direct from Crosman and they are confident they'll hit that. Not sure that means all of the backorders will be filled though, I've been told there are a ton.
r u guys 100% sure this will not come on june?
With the amount of times it's been pushed back, can't be certain....but I'd say it's pretty unlikely
I see that the in stock changed again to 7/04/2018.Have they given any reason why it is taking them so long to get these out?
It's changed again to 7/9. Very disappointing
6/11-7/4-7/9 the 9ths my birthday I hope that is legit final change!!!
Not that I have heard. Hopeful that this will be the last/final change
Which parts are metal?
Can't say 100% for sure yet, but the majority of the gun is a glass filled nylon polymer blend
Is this rifle all metal Does it break down like the real steel
It's a glass filled nylon polymer, and it does come apart very much like a real AR
can i mount a sling mounter on the buffer tube
I have the same question. When you remove the stock, there is still a top part, meaning not round to slip on one of those cheap add on sling adapters.
Im so exited for this gun, have any idea when i can get my hand on one?
As of right now (5/14/18) it's looking like early June.
What is the barrel length of the DPMS SBR? Why is the fps so low at 430fps?
It is usually low because the blowback function uses a lot of gas.
Is the angled forgrip removable?
Yes, I used an allen wrench to take out the bolt in the foregrip to slide it back but you can also slide it off.
It looks like it connects to the picatinny rail, so it should be, but we will find out more when they actually come out
Looks like now they pushed it back until June..can we cancel Pre-orders...it does not look like we not even get it this summer.
Yeah...they dont care. Wonder what order number they will use. I ordered two...pyramid air scheme got all this honkys duckets!
Sure, just give the customer service dept. a call with your order number if you want to cancel.
Does the magazine have a reservoir on or is it just like a regular mag. U empty it u have to refill
Wait wait Wait! On this page one alert says in stock 5/31 and another alert says 3/15. Please tell me its a typo and is actually 3/15!!
It has been pushed back by Crosman, looking like May now.
And can I buy extra magazines?
Hopefully they will be available when the rifle is released.
What is the right ammo for this airsoft gun?
First off, not an airsoft gun. Second, any standard .177 caliber steel BBs should work without a problem.
they say it field strips like the real firearm does top an lower receiver just separate or can you actuality take out the bolt,charging handle ext..??
It fully breaks down like the actual rifle.
Won't know until they come out, might want to ask Crosman this directly.
Can I buy extra magazines for this now? I pre ordered and I would like to get extra mags because one is never, ever, enough.
Thank you, I hope they become available for the time of release of the gun.
At this point (2/26/18), there is no info on extra mags.
Is the receiver metal or glass filled nylon like the stock, hand guard and foregrip?
glass filled nylon polymer
Will it come in a box , or the insulting blister pack?
$180 subgun in a blister pack would be a huge turn off
Don't know yet.
Can this be field stripped like an AR rifle?
I know the upper and lower come apart like the real deal, but how much of the internals you can remove, I am not sure yet.
Will This be available to Canadian customers???
Does it have a single or double stack mag? Will this fire the new Air Venturi Dust Devils?
I use the new Dust Devils and they work fine in my SBR but they ricochet like any other BB.
Not sure yet.
Will this come in another color?
Did not see any other colors at SHOT
Are spare mags available for quick change when co2 in one mag runs out? Will this be offered in black only? No FDE or OD?
How many mags come with it? When will they be available?
Only one usually.
Is this made in USA by Crosman ? If not where made.?
Is anyone else as excited as I am to shoot this air rifle?
I LOVE shooting this gun! I added a forward grip and red dot site to my rifle.
Does it have blowback and functioning controls?
Remember not all blowback weapons use a slide. This rifle's blowback functions like a Mauser Broomhandle in which you can see the bolt moving during the blowback phase of operation.
video appears to show blowback similar to the MP 40. Hopefully will not come in oversized blister pack
In one of the videos after last shot the bolt locks?
No blow back, selector switch and mag release function
How many BBs does it hold? How many will it fire per co2 cart pair in semi and full auto approximately?
My magazine holds 25 BB's. Full auto is awesome if you shoot in bursts.
The magazine only holds 25 rounds, I have got over 200 shot count in semi auto at 72 degrees fahrenheit. I haven't counted full auto yet.
From Phillip Guadalupe in Replica Airguns interview at Shot: semi auto ~ 175 shots... full auto 60-90 shots per 2-12g CO2s
30 rds. Not sure on shot count yet
