Are you planning to buy an air rifle? Well, if it is your first ever purchase then better to learn about the various types of air rifles because it will help you to decide which type will be perfect for you.

Below mentioned review of each of thetype of air rifles can help you to gain knowledge:

  • CO2 powered air rifles are available in various styles but they all share a common feature of using CO2 canister for receiving their power. For using such guns, you do not need to pump them before you take the shot.You simply have to aim and fire, that’s all. Rest is taken care by the CO2.The only issue is that they have limited power and the cylinders used can be quite expensive. Also, environmental factors such as temperature can affect the performance of such rifles.
  • A lot of gunners like spring piston air rifle due to the shooting range capabilities.If you want to hit a moving or non-moving target which is 30-35 feet away, you need an effective range.The 1000fps competency and efficiency will increase the probability of hitting a target which is moving very fast. Such air rifles are quite reasonable in terms of price.But for using spring piston power, one needs a lot of practice to aim and shoot properly.
  • Pre-charged pneumatic air rifleis also a good option because this does not require pumping in between shots.Such guns have an air reservoir that maintains around 3000 PSI.Air depletion takes place with each shot, until pumping of the weapon is done. For recharging the weapon, you will have to buy a SCUBA tank or a pump based on your budget and specifications. These additional purchases can be a bit costly, which is the only demerit of this type of air rifle.
