This is a 1:1 scale semi auto electric blowback pistol. Made completely from ABS (plastic) this gun is low powered but great fun as it loads automatically without re-cocking. The gun takes 4 x AAA batteries that are not included. (please only use hi-quality batteries or you may find that the gun will not operate correctly) This BB electric pistol has a Mabuchi RE-280 Motor that delivers a smooth blowback action. Great fun and recommended for backyard battles and close target shooting.
