UHC Soft Air P228 Silver Spring Airsoft Manual
The duty pistol of most law enforcement, the P228 is well known for it's accuracy and durability. This scale model fires a 6mm plastic round at ~200 FPS and is fit for in home use or training applications. This is a spring airsoft gun, and the slide must be manually pulled back for each shot. The body is constructed of ABS plastic, with some metal internal parts.
SigSauer P228 was introduced in 1989 as a compact companion to full-sized P226 (much like the P225 was a compact variant of the P220). P228 featured same design characteristics as a P226, but is somewhat smaller, with more "rounded" shape and with smaller capacity magazines. Technically, P228 is similar to other P220-series guns: it is a blowback-operated, locked breech design, with modified Browning-style linkless locking via slide ejection port. It has same DA or DAO trigger mechanism with striker pin safety, manual decocker (lever on the left side of the frame), slide stop. Slide is manufactured from stamped steel, with locking block insert. Frame is made from aluminum alloy.
In April, 1992, US Army officially adopted P228 as a M11 US Army pistol, a compact sidearm for aircraft crews, Military police officers and other personnel who needed a handgun, more compact than full-sized M9 (aka Beretta 92).
This airsoft gun is not to be misrepresented as a real firearm or gun that is manufactured by Sig Sauer and is merely an airsoft gun that fires 6mm pellets. The manufacturer of this airsoft gun is UHC/Soft Air.
