Crosman 1600 backporch plinking
« on: September 02, 2021, 01:35:17 PM »
The Crosman 454 is CO2 powered, semi-auto BB gun that was styled after the Colt Woodsman. It has a sixteen shot magazine, and adjustable rear sights. These guns were manufactured between 1972 and 1977. They are the father of the 1600 which replaced it in 1979. Today let's take a look any shoot the last variant of this gun.

The Crosman 1600  (made in Spain) Power-Matic is a C02 powered BB gun with one powerlet. It’s a semi-automatic replica of the Colt Woodsman pistol, and features a seventeen shot spring fed magazine, plus fixed sites, and was manufactured in Spain between 1979 and 1990. The Power-Matic is similar to the BB-Matic, but has a barrel shaped gas filler cap instead of a flathead gas filler cap screw. They are a true semi auto pistol, firing as fast as you can pull the trigger. Before the 1600 there was the 454 pretty much the same gun.

I own all three versions and they are among my favorite co2 guns. Today I will do some backporch plinking at 25 feet.
