  1. Tony,

    I would include the Crosman 2260 in your group of airguns suitable for pest control. It fires a .22 pellet and is capable of 11 to 12 foot-pounds of muzzle energy. Of course, the 2260 is a warm-weather airgun–a significant power loss occurs at temperatures below 50 degrees. Nevertheless, it’s an affordable airgun with the power to eliminate most pests with the appropriate shot placement and shooting distance. And, it’s actually manufactured in America.

    Thanks, Mike


  2. Just a point of clarification, the Remington Air Master is a multi-pump pneumatic not a break barrel as the caption states. Nice round up! Thanks for putting this together.
