Crossman C41 CO2 BB Gun Ultimate Review

Crossman C41 CO2 BB Gun Ultimate Review And Lowest Purchase Price

 

This Rugged Crossman C41 BB gun is a fairly accurate representation of the Walther P38 as used by the Germans in WW2.  The gun comes in a nice box instead of a typical plastic clam shell. I personally prefer this as i can get to the pistol without destroying the packaging. Plus you have a nice reusable box to keep safer for a long time.

The C41 is construct of metal except for the plastic hand grips. The company has done a nice job simulating the wood pattern on these grips. It also features a functioning slide that is purely decorative and serves no purpose at all. And The trigger on the C41 is double-action-only with a smooth pull and a fairly good release.

The C41 features a blade and ramp style front sight and a  fixed rear  sight. The magazine release button is located on the bottom of the pistol grip near the clip, while the safety switch is on the right. The safety  requires you to push in first then slide it on or off.

The Crossman C41 uses a 19 shot magazine.  This magazine is the same one used in the Smith & Wesson MP,  Beretta Elite II and the Crossman C11/C21/C31 guns. There’s no mounting rails on this particular pistol for adding accessories like flashlights, and lasers or sights..

The Crossman C41 is powered by a single standard 12g CO2 cartridge inserted into the hand grip behind a pull out grip panel. The grips on this style of CO2 storage can start to become loose over time.

To load the BB’s into the magazine is easy.  Just pull the sliding follower all the way down until it catches  and stays locked.  Drop BBs through the hole in the magazine until  full.  Next put the clip into the gun and you should be ready for fun.

Sometimes the locked  follower would not unlock and no BBs could be fired.  This seems to be  because the hook on the bottom of the follower is a bit too aggressive  and hangs on to the bottom of the magazine.

The fix is simple…  After loading BBs into the clip, make sure the hook is released before putting it into the gun.  This will require a bit of fidgeting with the hook a  bit until it gives in.

One more odd occurrence with this pistol is if a clip is released with BBs still in it.  What occurs is a BB will  drop out of the magazine well.  This seems to happen because the top BB is released from the magazine when the magazine is inserted.
