Features

There is no question that CO2 airguns are one of the hottest things on the market right now. It has a number of benefits, which makes them better than several other airgun types available today.

The CO2-powered air gun is a constant favorite among enthusiasts who use it for target shooting practices. Because it does not always have recoil and bolt action, it makes the type well-liked by greenhorns in the scene and younger enthusiasts.

They are easy to use and handle as well and the majority of the models being designed and manufactured are lightweight. The Crosman P15B air gun also requires minimal maintenance, is durable and made well.

However, CO2 airguns have their disadvantages too; some models only provide average accuracy and they can be costly to operate. There are online sellers who provide high discounts on carbon dioxide canisters but the shipping may not be accessible in some locations. In addition, the pellets and BBs might have different price rates due to material and quality.

The Crosman P15B is one of those CO2 models that we have tested and we tried it in a 10-ft. range with approximately a 3-inch difference; in terms of accuracy, the model did (as expected) decently. As for its magazine, the Crosman company promises that it can last 20 rounds but if you want to steer clear of pellet jams, you have to do with 19 maximum rounds.

There was some slight recoil and it did not perturb me but according to some users who have tried the model, they claimed that they indeed felt it.

The Crosman P15B is not a toy and it is not for children to play with. Because of its lighter feel, this is not something that shooters should practice on since the weight cannot compare to that of an authentic firearm with a full load. This is ideal for a day of plinking or target shooting soda cans.

Pros

  • Decent power for an air pistol
  • Features great design and style
  • Majority of the gun is composed of metal parts
  • Requires minimal maintenance

Cons

  • Has recoil
  • Not enough weight which reduces its realistic feel
