With a full blowback action, the SIG Air ProForce M18 provides a realistic trainer.

SIG Sauer recently released its newest airsoft pistol, the SIG Air ProForce M18. The ProForce M18 serves as a replica to the U.S. military issued M18. As such, it provides a training tool to serve military, law enforcement and civilian shooters.

The ProForce M18 comes with an optics-ready slide. The removable rear sight plate allows easy mounting of a soon-to-be released SIG Air Reflex Sight. The airsoft pistol field strips and features a polymer frame and metal slide. It operates with a full blowback action.

The magazine holds 21 round of 6mm polymer or biodegradable airsoft BBs. The M18 also feature an adjustable hop-up and Picatinny accessory rail. It comes standard with a flush mount, green gas magazine. Meanwhile, a CO2 cartridge magazine comes separately.

“The SIG P320-M18 handgun is very popular because of its adoption with the U.S. military as part of the Modular Handgun System. It has since become the official handgun of the U.S. Marine Corps, and was most recently adopted as the official handgun of the U.S. Air Force, which has only increased the demand for the handgun in the civilian market,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The SIG AIR ProForce M18 has the same look and feel as the P320-M18 making it the perfect option for training in a variety of environments and refining your technique when you can’t make it to the range.”
