*The blowback on the C96 CO2 pistol functions the same as it does on the firearm. There is no slide. The only thing that moves is the bolt. The purpose of the bolt's movement is to cock the hammer (because this is a single-action pistol).

How long have you waited to get a C96? This BB gun is incredibly realistic. Load it with CO2 and steel BBs, pull back the charging handle on the end of the bolt and commence to shootin'! Airgun writer Tom Gaylord tested this gun, and he was shocked at the great accuracy it delivered. Click the link elsewhere on this page to read all the buzz about this great pistol!

This BB gun replica of the legendary German pistol will not disappoint you! There were several variations of the C96 (also known as the "Broomhandle Mauser"), and this is a copy of the Schnellfeuer (German for fast or rapid fire) version of the C96, which was produced from 1932 to 1936.

Things I liked: Great value for an all metal replica (plastic grips dont count). Historically, this was one of Winston Churchills favorite sidearms. I am really impressed with the blowback action of the bolt that cocks the hammer for the following shot. I gave it 4 stars for accuracy only because I have not yet completed my tests with different bbs.Count)

Things I would have changed: Nothing. They got it right!

What others should know: It balances well in the hand.

Things I liked: the price been looking at one for sometime. 1st co2 gun for me. never really been fond anything co2 powered. surprisingly accurate

Things I would have changed: unless I missed it left and right site adjustment. wish there was a quicker way to puncture co2 cartridges. I guess that initial spit is normal.

What others should know: I'm not a big fan of loading bb's in anything. I did figure out that I could use the the .177 pellet loader it holds the exact amount.I'm 74 and have semiinumb finger tips down past 1st joint. To pick up the bb's I use a small wand magnet.

Things I liked: I love the blow-back style of this pistol.Also, the sights are adjustable and really work.As the CO2 gets weaker you can change the sights to compensate. Easy pull trigger. Very accurate, 3-inch circle from 3 meters.!!0 110 to 120 shots per CO2 cartridge.Nice grip and you can hold the clip for perfectly steady shooting.
