Comments: This is the first variant of the 454 that has the button piercing screw. The gun is well balanced with a smooth DA trigger. Despite the high quality fit and finish, the gun is underpowered and lacks accuracy. The later, cheaper, Model 1600 has better performance.

Performance: Measurements were made on 8/30/06 at a temperature of 90 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Crosman Copperhead BBs (5.1 gr). The highest velocity measured was 322 fps, the lowest was 274 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 302 fps). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.28".
