704 Tactical burns through the range and shows us the ins and outs of the 5" CMMG Banshee in 45 ACP.
AR pistols are the new craze. It seems that everyone has bought their fair share of classic 5.56 builds and they are looking to build setups that are different. Maybe that means new calibers or gun specs in general, but it's always a move to make things better.
The AR pistol definitely has the "cool" factor over your traditional handguns and with that comes a lot of gun collectors and enthusiast flocking to manufacturers to get these guns in their hands. Which is exactly what is happening with this 5" CMMG Banshee in 45 ACP. 704 Tactical rips through a gun range and catches the viewers attention right off the bat.
CMMG, Inc. has been on the forefront of this movement, and their short-barreled rifles built on a lightweight platform make these guns a sweet alternative to a traditional AR-15.
Chambered in 45 ACP, the round that is so famously connected with the 1911, the pistol grip Banshee SBR gives the classic and famous round a new way to sling it at the gun range.
The 5" Banshee is incredibly visually appealing and it immediately makes you want to hit the range with it. But beyond the looks of the firearm, there is a whole lot of awesome features and technology jam packed in the little package. Everything from the new ambidextrous charging handle to the retractable buttstock to the radial delayed blowback is a welcomed feature.
They're made with 7075 aluminum T-6 receivers, and an RML M-Lok Hand Guard, and going with one of the shortest barrels you can find makes it a really unique firearm.
The barrel comes threaded for suppressors and the pistol is made of high quality steel so that there is no need to worry or question the longevity you will have with the firearm. There are several to pick through, but the shortened barrel lengths are really what standout.
Speaking of choices, the range of pistol-caliber options as well as more basic rifle rounds make this a particularly customizable gun.
The high quality we have come to expect with CMMG holds true to this new neat Banshee.
