Beretta Model 92A1
The Model 92A1 is a select fire air gun rendition of Beretta's famous M92A. Featuring a 26-round magazine and a realistic all-metal frame and a metal blowback slide that actually moves when the gun cycles, the Model 92A1 runs on a 12-gram CO2 capsule. It fires .177-caliber projectiles and is capable of producing velocities up to 330 feet per second (fps) with steel BBs.

Colt's Single Action Army was a staple of the American Old West, but plenty of people still cherish the gun and Umarex has capitalized on that with this air pistol. The Colt Peacemaker replicates many of the features of the original revolver, and this air pistol features a unique loading system wherein the user loads six steel BBs into six full-size casings. The replica air gun also has to be half-cocked to remove or load casings and the hammer must be manually cocked for each shot, just like Colt's original. Shooters can similarly quick-fire the Peacemaker by holding down the trigger and operating the hammer with the off hand. The Peacemaker is CO2-powered and is capable of velocities up to 410 fps. It fires .177-caliber projectiles, has a 10.75-inch overall length and weighs 2 pounds. The Peacemaker air pistol is available in two different finishes: blued and nickel.

The air gun version is capable of firing .177-caliber projectiles up to 400 fps, while the Airsoft version fires 6mm BBs at a maximum velocity of 420 fps. Both configurations utilize drop free magazines, with the air gun version holding 20 rounds and the Airsoft variant holding 15 rounds. The Airsoft pistol also features a built-in HopUp system for loading.
