I got the chance to Field Test another 4.5mm Steel BB Air Rifle. Most of the time I'm testing out pistols so the opportunity to shoot some rounds through a rifle is a nice change. Todays Air Rifle test subject was the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle and by the way it also comes in a 6mm Airsoft version called the ASG TAC-6 CO2 Airsoft Rifle. Maybe down the road I will see how the 6mm Airsoft version compares to the 4.5mm Steel BB version...

Right out of the get go the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle surprised me with some rather high velocity shots going through my Chrony Chronograph. The highest FPS shot getting up to 538 fps and the slower shot which was the 5th shot slowing down a bit to 485 fps. My 5 shot average was still up and over 500 fps at 514 fps.

If you're worried about the ASG TAC-4.5 CO2 BB Air Rifle being legal as an unregulated firearm in Canada, there is no need to be concerned since the 500 fps limitation also requires a foot pound energy of over 4.2 foot pounds for the airgun to require a firearms license (both thresholds must be met). A 4.5mm steel BB weighs in at around 5.1 grain and even with the fastest shot of 538 fps, the foot pound energy would only be 3.28 foot pounds so nope, no PAL required.
