A Perfect Platform for Force-on-Force Training

The gun itself is a spot-on copy of a traditional 1911, mostly. The slide comes in a hair short of that on a real 1911 A1. The barrel has a threaded orange tip extending beyond the end of the slide.

Octane Elite Air Rifle — Functional Upgrades Same Price

The Octane air rifle was a well-respected entry into the break-barrel air gun market. It brought solid performance at a price that anyone could afford. Yet some felt like some ergonomic options were sacrificed to get the price down to its $259 price point.
