The Model 1600 is a less expensive version of the Model 454 that has a
more plain finish and grips as well as a fixed rear sight.
However, it shoots harder and with greater accuracy than the
Model 454. This
is the second variant of the 1600. This gun is moderately accurate
for a BB gun with a smooth barrel and is a decent plinker.
