Air Rifle

Not sure where this belongs!

I want to buy an air rifle. What do you have, and do you like it?

Re: Air Rifle

How much are you willing to spend on one?? There are some great PCP airguns that are going for around 600$, but then you can also shoot sub inch groups at 50 yards with them. Not to mention get 22lr ft.lbs out of them.

It's called SHOT PLACEMENT not a bigger caliber

Re: Air Rifle

what is the intended usage? i am familiar with the 10 meter indoor competitions type rifles and pistols. they are available in single pump, co2, and pneumatic. price ranging from $100 for a used daisy 853 to a anschutz for $2500. what's your choice?

Re: Air Rifle

Not looking to break the bank. I want a decent air rifle to plink, but it needs to also have some punch. Been looking around the net. Just wanted to know what everyone has and why they like it.

Re: Air Rifle

check out the cmp (odcmp.com) website. they have rebuilt used daisy 853 air rifles at $100. new peep sight,sling, spacers for lop adjustment, all new seals and chrony tested. these have walther barrels and will shoot 10 meters far better than anything under $500. check out retail for a new one but have smelling salts handy. $$$$$$

Re: Air Rifle

Go on pyramidair.com and see what they carry and reads the reviews. If it has to do with air rifles, they are the ones to ask!
