Air Ordnance SMG Full Auto Air Rifle Review
Now and then something comes around that one just has to try out, no matter if it fits ones usual preferences or not.
There is this sweet little fun-gun from Air Ordnance called the SMG 22 Full Auto Belt Fed Pellet Gun. The name is pretty self explanatory. It’s a belt fed gun that works like a Small Machine Gun and it discharges up to 12 rounds per second! A device such as that sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Let’s check out if that is true.
It does look a lot like a Tippman paintball gun, which is not a bad thing.
The rifle is loaded with a 100 round belt that is fed into a drum. You can even buy more belts and carry them over your shoulders like Rambo. The included 20 oz. CO2 tank powers the gun, but it is versatile enough to be powered by a regular paintball-style compressed air tank, like the Ninja 48/3k Aluminum HPA Paintball Tank BLACK that you can get from Amazon.
This gun has a trigger grip with some sweet rubber sides for a nice stable hold. There is a front Picatinny rail for attachments such as bipods, scopes, cameras, gun lasers, whatever you want really. At the rear end of the Picatinny rail, a contoured synthetic front grip is mounted.
I much prefer the compressed air bottle cause, unlike CO2, it won’t freeze the gun when firing a lot.
Much like other famous semi-auto and full-auto airguns on the market, such as the Crosman Comrade, Umarex Steel Storm and Baikal Drozd, this is a gun designed to be the best in backyard plinking. And of course it is fun as hell. Set up cans and mow them down. Paint smiley faces in targets. Rip through heavy tin cans, pumpkins or any other kind of household object you wish to destroy forever. It can all can be done with this little beast. If you are wanting to have your friends drop over and never leave, or put permanent smiles on the faces of your kids, then get one of these. Just remember to stock up on CO2 canisters or compressed air tanks, as well as plenty of pellets, cause the Air Ordnance Full Auto Belt Fed gun will go through these like ice-cream in the Sahara.
All in all, this is a VERY interesting full auto air rifle in SMG format. It loads with an ammo belt and that makes it unique. As far as backdoor plinking go, as well as the impress-your-pals effect, this full-auto beast is hard to top. So if you fancy spending the money on what is essentially one of the coolest toys you will ever own, then you should do so.
