M1 Carbine and Springfield Armory Pistols Airsoft and Airgun: Air Venturi
The M1 Carbine was a standard firearm for the U.S. military during World War II, the Korean War and well into the Vietnam War. It is now available through Air Venturi as both a .177 BB CO2 air rifle or 6mm CO2 airsoft rifle. Featuring an full metal receiver and synthetic wood look stock, the .177 CO2 BB Rifle shoots velocities up to 425 fps and gets nearly 40 shots per 12 gram CO2 cartridge.
When the XD(M)® series of polymer pistols were introduced in 2007 from Springfield Armory®, the line featured a ground-breaking design that offered new and higher standards for ergonomic comfort, ease of operation, features and performance. Over one decade later, Air Venturi brings this legendary series to the airgun and airsoft replica market, in both compact (3.8″) and standard (4.5″) configurations. The .177 BB
CO2 series features a 20 rd mag, full blowback and can shoot velocities of up to 325 fps. The airsoft pistol series are powered by green gas (with CO2 magazines available) and can shoot up to 280 fps in the compact models, and up to 330 fps in the standard models.
Both BB and airsoft models will be available in all black and black frame/silver slide finishes starting in spring 2019.
“We are beyond excited to be launching both the M1 Carbine rifle series and XD(M)® pistol series as our first replicas from the iconic Springfield Armory® line of firearms,” said Val Gamerman, President of Air Venturi. “The M1 Carbine embodies the history of the revered firearm that was used not only the U.S. military, but by military, paramilitary and police forces around the world. The XD(M)® series of pistols, available in 8 different configurations, will be available in spring 2019, and will be a hit with airgunners, replica enthusiasts and airsoft fans alike.”

About Springfield Armory
In 1794, the original Springfield Armory was designated as our national armory by General George Washington, and began manufacturing muskets for the defense of our young, free Republic. This monumental institution went on to serve as a think tank for developing innovative firearms concepts and producing some of the most storied rifle platforms in our country’s history. The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.
