The MCX Rattler Canebrake is the pistol variant of SIG Sauer's innovative MCX rifle family. SIG AIR division is now introducing the MCX Rattler Canebrake Airgun Rifle that replicates the appearance and feel of the live firearm – with the obvious difference that the latter is chambered in the powerful .300 BLK caliber, while the airgun version shoots .177 cal. pellets.
SIG AIR airguns are designed for professional training and for discerning recreational airsoft shooters. “The SIG AIR line of products combines the unmatched reliability, performance, and exacting standards that the consumer expects of SIG SAUER firearms, and the MCX Rattler Canebrake Airgun Rifle is true to these standards,” says Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc. The SIG AIR Canebrake makes no exception since it “has the same look, weight, and balance of its traditional firearm counterpart, given the immense popularity of the MCX platform, and the Canebrake specifically, combined with the current realities of the consumer market.” “This SIG AIR release is the perfect training tool. The Rattler Canebrake is the first of many exciting new products soon to come from SIG AIR,” Taylor adds.

Barrel is 4”/101 mm long and muzzle energy is 8 Joules / 6 FPE The receiver is metal, and the synthetic handguard sports integrated M-LOK modular locking accessory mounting system. Flip-up sights on top of a full-length Picatinny rail, a shrouded barrel, and flat blade trigger complete the package.
