Based on the ultimate warfighter rifle the M4, the DPMS SBR (Short Barrel Rifle) gives shooters everything they want from a full-auto M4 adapted for maximum airgun fun. Officially licensed and stamped, the DPMS SBR slings blistering semi and full-auto repeating BB shots, fueled by two 12-gram CO2 cartridges housed in the 30rd magazine.
Adjust your SBR to your preference with a 6-point adjustable rear stock and get a steady support from the movable hand rest on the forend. The SBR’s quad-Weaver/Picatinny rails give you limitless opportunities for mounting flashlights, pistol grips, and lasers. Each package includes removable pop-up sights and the rear sight is adjustable. The fire-mode selector lets you choose between semi or fully-automatic shots at 430 fps.
If you want to mow down targets and shred paper and tin cans alike, grab the DPMS SBR and enter the action!

It has some heft to it giving a feeling of a real firearm. The magazine gives the perception of being well made but capacity is too small for a full auto capable gun. Loading the mag is the most unpleasant chore when using this gun. It has no way to lock down the follower when loading which in this writers opinion is absolutely stupid. C'mon Crosman, what are we supposed to do, rip off our fingernails trying to load this thing. There is no excuse for this.
I made a hold down tool for mine which makes things a lot easier.
The sights are lame but someone useable. It's difficult to get a good sight picture so I put a cheap ACOG on mine. Gun is a bit on the loud side but not too bad. I fired 7-8 magazines mostly on rock and roll without a hitch. The adjustable stock works well and gives a good cheek weld and all controls are in the correct place. I shot mine at 20 yards in semi mode and it gave a group size of about 4" which IMO isn't too shabby for a non rifled barrel gun that shoots BB's.
Why design such a nice gun only to sabotage it with a stupid magazine. It took all the fun out of it.
I have to first say, I am not a big fan of Crosman, but I also own a Crosman M4-177 and love it. The M4-177 is ot a good training gun, but an accurate, extremely versitile air gun.
The DPMS is however, a good training gun.
I was hesitant about the blowback, in that the gun may not be very accurate, but it is.
Most of you will laugh, but full auto is not my thing. I prefer to practice in semi-auto, since that is what I own.
So, now you know I am not a fan of Crosman and not a fan of full auto. BUT, I am a big fan of this gun.
The speedloaded works great, just keep putting in a drop or two of pelgun oil in it. I use it for most of my bb guns.
The blowback is a nice novelty, but not very realistic, but it is after all a bb gun, so it works as you would expect it to.
Bottom line - Great semi-auto & training tool! No regrets!
The "iron sights" that come with the rifle work wonderfully once you zero in, but I prefer a red dot. Lots of space to attach other accessories too.
This rifle has some power to it, don't be fooled by the "BB gun" moniker.
As to the speed loader alot of people seem to have issues with. You need to do this:
Hold your magazine tilted toward the deck, slide your speed re-loader in and slightly jiggle as you press the plunger. You'll get an even and easy refill in seconds. I've shot nearly 1000 bbs and I've have yet to run into any problems speed reloading. Just remember to tilt the magazine downward while reloading.
So far, all i've been shooting are Steel BB's. I have not tried the copper ones yet. It's recommended that you shoot steel bb's though.
Enclosed is a plastic loading device with no instructions. It is flimsy and I'm surprised it had not broken while I figured out how to use it, as others have had happen. Doesn't work anyway. I have a small piece of wood with a tack protruding to pull the loader spring back instead of my finger nails or thumb which does not feel good after a few loads. This action is supposed happen with the enclosed device but all the BBs jam when you push the plunger with your other thumb. It's a good idea but needs a little more adjustment. I would hope this is not the norm. I bought the gun to capture the automatic features but it takes some of the fun out and is a bit disappointing.
AR-15s and an AR-10 and this Crossman DPMS-SBR is a fantastic value,well made and as accurate a replica as my real ARs . It shoots excellent,sights in quickly and I can drill a 4 inch bullseye @ 20 yards effortlessly with the open sights .Feeds well,has a well made heft and weight to it,and the *FUN* switch in full auto/select fire is a real cool feature. And in rebuttal to those who say the speed loader doesn't work......well It DOES WORK and is easy to use . A very well made and fun weapon to shoot ~ especially the blowback bolt function which is very realistic and a good training aid . I'm going to order the Flat Dark Earth Colored Model tomorrow I like it so much. You'll smile ear to ear after 5 minutes with this gun believe me .
The co2 lasts very very well. me and my daughter have been plinking sinse we got it.
First shot and subsequent firings jammed two BB's into the barrel.
I was using the .177 BB's air gun depot sells, the Marksman BB Speed Loader
with a package of BB's, model #1510. They are too big! DON"T USE THESE!
Luckily the gun is pretty easy to disassemble and I got the barrel out
and used a coat hanger to remove the two BBs. I then used some BB's I had
for an old Daisy I have and checked that they would roll down the front
of the barrel to the action, and they did, so sighted it in in semi
and went full auto! Too awesome!!!
As for shooting, it's a BB gun. Blowback is very solid. Trigger pull is heavy, but it's fine. Full auto is awesome. The bolt stays back on the last round.
