Air Weapons


Here is one of the ''hand cannon'' category revolvers which comes with a free dose of grin! It is a blast to shoot. Chosen as 45-70 caliber much as anything because that old round is so versatile when being able to reload. The Holosight, although not for everyone very pretty - makes for an excellent sighting system.

45-70 Govt was originally of course a black powder round but as a smokeless has a usefully low pressure profile. For trap door use and old guns a load around 25,000 CUP is at the bottom end but for something like the BFR this can be well cranked up to the 30,000 region. With a 405 grain Lasercast SWC there is about 1550 ft lbs at the muzzle which is more than useful but leaves things quite comfortable and controllable.
