At 35ft 7in (approx 10 yards) we had a nice stable spot for our FX wireless chronograph which gave us an average velocity of 180fps with a maximum of 184fps over 6 shots…this is a little lower than what Daisy claims at 240fps but it was still worth a shot to try and sting this stang with some lead…errr copper!
Airfunner Moots at it again! So here we are to bring you the test of low power and cheap fun…
The question: Will a spring powered plastic BB gun break a car window at 10 yards?
Short answer: YES! Read on for more details.
Car window test
So we all wonder (well maybe just some of us) if a cheap plastic BB gun can shatter a car window at 10 yards? So the test had to be done…first step was finding a cheap car door. After asking around for a couple days I found myself at a local salvage yard, turns out they charge the same price no matter what condition the door is in, flat rate $75+ tax…even though I wasn’t too happy about this I still knew I would have what I needed by the end of the day and go figure I found a sweet Ford mustang door in really great condition! Although I had no tools on me to remove the door I kindly asked a few gentleman who were nearby ripping apart a 1999 Honda Civic if I could borrow some of their tools…they said sure, I used a 14mm socket to remove 4 bolts from the door and cut the wiring harness with a pair of diagonal cutters. I returned the tools to their rightful owner and then wondered how I would get this door all the way to the front office by myself. The guys were busy ripping apart the civic and it wasn’t really their problem so I decided to drag this heap of glass and metal through the scrap yard for about a 1/4 mile leaving a nice trail from where it came all the way up to the office door. I then went inside and the old man behind the counter rang me up. $83 dollars and a few gasps of air later and I was on my way to the test site! The door was heavy and awkward to carry but I was determined! Into the truck it went, out of the truck it came, up the hill it went and into the woods it got placed…Once in place it was time for the fun to begin! First I tested the daisy powerline 340 BB gun on the fx wireless chronograph and got an average of 180fps with a high of only 184fps which is considerably lower than daisy’s 240fps claim. After a few test shots it was time to clap that glass! One shot hit! Second shot hit and SHATTERED! Success! I was surprised to say the least but definitely happy with the results. Although there wasn’t any penetration I do believe the window would have shattered and fell to the ground if it didn’t have an aftermarket tint applied to it. I had to keep trying so I loaded the daisy up again and emptied another clip…still no penetration. At this point I knew it was time for MORE POWER! Next up was the Springfield armory 1911 mil spec made by air Venturi with a claim of 340fps. Fx chrony confirmed an average of 300fps over 6 shots. It was enough! It went through! We had penetration! The accuracy on this gun was very nice allowing me to keep tight groups of 1inch or less at 10 yards. Now although this was enough firepower to go through it just wasn’t practical to keep loading it and shooting when I had the Umarex tac xbg right next to me. This gun was much easier to load and has an increased velocity of 390fps…needless to say this did the trick to completely annihilate the window until the point of shattering it to pieces. This was a fun test and performed very safely… PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. Bloopers at end of video.
Here we have it! A nice addition to the ever so growing Arsenal over here at Airfunners. The Umarex T4E HDS is a solid gun with an all metal barrel and metal internals including a metal trigger and many other quality parts. These guns are packed into a very nice textured all weather synthetic “sawed off” style buttstock/ handgrip and I must say what a great feel this gun has in your hand seems to be a well made product by umarex. This is a one of -a- kind home defense double barrel sawed off shotgun that shoots rubber balls, pepper balls, or paint balls and I hear there is also a wide variety of exotic home-made munitions as well. These projectiles are propelled by one 12 gram CO2 cartridge at velocities reported of over 350fps (with air mod and single barrel). This gun can be fired one barrel at a time or BOTH AT THE SAME TIME for when you need maximum force and ultimate protection. Unfortunately we do not have any ammo for testing this beautiful airfun at the moment but we are in the works of obtaining some and doing some real life scenario testing with pepper, rubber, paint, and of course plenty of exotic home-made balls. We will test them in many different ways on many different targets with chronograph results, ammo ballistics tests, number of shots per CO2, also will be testing trigger pull weight, accuracy/range and of course the most dangerous but well needed test the WILL IT STOP A GROWN MAN TEST!
