SIG Sauer M1911 “We The People” BB Pistol

posted on April 6, 2018

The M1911 “We The People” BB pistol from SIG Sauer is a tribute to the Second Amendment and the most storied handgun in history—the M1911. A distressed finish with patriotic embellishments throughout make this a one-of-a-kind plinker. Powered by CO2 and built from metal, the pistol provides for a realistic M1911 experience with a reciprocating slide. Magazine capacity is 17 rounds of .177-cal. (4.5 mm) BBs, and the muzzle velocity approaches 340 f.p.s. The stock panels provide positive purchase by use of 50 raised stars, 25 on each side, symbolizing each state of the union. The slide’s sides feature the tribute marks “WE THE PEOPLE” and “1776.” Atop the slide are the 13 stars of the “Betsy Ross” flag along with a set of fixed, combat-style sights. Price: $120.
