Air Rifles

Air Rifles have a lot to offer:

* Accuracy – many air rifles deliver sufficient accuracy for plinking, target shooting, hunting and pest control from 10 to 50 yards and beyond. Olympic match air rifles deliver 0.04″ center-to-center accuracy at 10 meters; air rifle field target competitors can routinely hit small targets at 50 yards.

* Low shooting expense — a tin of 500 high-quality pellets costs a fraction of a similar quantity of firearm ammunition.

* Quiet — these subsonic rifles generally offer a neighbor-friendly report.

* Convenience – air rifles are completely legal to shoot in many areas where firearms are forbidden. You don’t have to drive to a shooting range; you can practice in your own backyard or basement. All you need is a pellet trap.

* High quality — adult precision air rifles offer all the pride of ownership of any conventional firearm, and the fit, finish, and precision in some models is absolutely spectacular.

* Power – large caliber air rifles (.25 caliber and up) use larger, heavier projectiles that can deliver sufficient power for taking game as large as coyotes, wild hogs, and deer.

* Pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) air rifles use air from a SCUBA tank or a high-pressure hand pump or compressor that is stored in a high-pressure reservoir on the gun. Olympic target models, many hunting air rifles, and many long-range varmint air rifles use this powerplant. This powerplant generally delivers highly accurate, consistent, and virtually recoil-free operation. Some models offer on-the-fly power adjustment. The chief disadvantage of these air rifles is that they are not self-contained, and so require extra gear – a high-pressure pump, compressor or SCUBA tank – to recharge the onboard reservoir. They also can be very loud, but many are now being offered with barrel shrouds or moderators that quiet the report considerably.
