The Shooting Party of Shenstone, Staffordshire, UK, the Shooting & Outdoor Pursuits equipment company, announced today the launch of the AirForceOnetm GoldGastm premium brand of 12gr CO” capsules.
“Carbon dioxide, or CO2, has been used to power guns since at least the 1870s, when Frenchman Paul Giffard first used it in his 6mm and 8mm gallery guns. In Giffard’s day, CO2 was such a novelty that those who bought his gun had to send their cylinders back to a central filling station. There were no places to buy the gas conveniently. For many years now Airgunners all over the world have enjoyed the convenience, simplicity and multiple shots offered by 12 gram CO2 capsules” said Mike Hurney, Chairman, The Shooting Party.
Our capsules are made from steel that is formed into the ubiquitous bottle shape by many applications of pressure of 110 tons.
We then inject them with liquid CO2 at extremely high pressure-900 PSI-or 30 times the air pressure in your car’s tyre!
All our capsules are then Zinc coated for excellent corrosion resistance in most atmospheres, in hard fresh waters, and in contact with many natural and synthetic substances.
We developed the award-winning Trophy air pistol using our distinctive gold-coloured capsules and achieved a remarkable shot-count of 50+ shots at a legal maximum of 5.5ft/lbs from each capsule. So, when buying your capsules for any CO2 gun why have silver when you can have gold?” Hurney added AirForceOnetm GoldGastm capsules are manufactured for the brand owner, The Shooting Party of Shenstone, Staffordshire.
Immediately SRP: 89p each. Packs of 20 £12.99 delivered
