Push down the lever on top to power the gun
Upon trigger is released, the lever will return and the piston at rear will pop out
This is how the gun works, fun and realistic!
What is an airgun? It is the correct term of "spring gun". In
Japan, all guns which require physical strength to operate are defined
as airgun. Airsoft is an other category for gun which does not require
physical force to operate. So gas powered gun and AEG will fall into
airsoft category. For this Luger P08, the reason it is worth mentioning
is the interesting mechanism it has. From the diagrams above, you
can see how the gun works. In normal condition, the gun is in "lock"
position, you have to push down the famous P08 "legs" above in order to
power the gun. A gold plastic plastic cartridge (with BB loaded)
is then pushed into the chamber. Upon release of trigger, the gun
will return to its normal condition (blow but not back), shooting the BBs
out and ejecting the emptied shell. Then the cycle continues for
This gun is really fun to shoot. Although it requires physical strength after each round is "discharged", the ability to have BBs shot out and shell ejected at the same time make this gun feels real. As an airgun, this gun is pretty well made as trigger, safety, magazine and piston unit are all metal made. The gun is in scale and the power is not bad for an airgun. Weighed at 360g, sure this P08 is light. But why interesting airgun like this will always got discontinued?
