If you thought dropping a pellet into an airgun was all that was needed, watch this video! How deeply you insert a pellet into your air rifle or air pistol can often make the difference between a dead-ringer and wall-hanger.
Pellet pens have been around for some time, and they make it easier to insert pellets into breakbarrel air guns. Because pellets are small, they can sometimes fall out of place due to an oversized loading port or just because it’s hard to handle small items.
By sliding pellets into the barrel of a pellet pen, you don’t have to worry about proper placement. Just click the pellet pen when it’s at the loading port, and a pellet is properly inserted into your airgun.
But pellet pens with pellet seaters have been shown to make a noticeable difference in accuracy. After the pellet pen has inserted the pellet in the rifle, you use the pellet seater to push the pellet further into the barrel. Watch this video and learn more about pellet pens, pellet seaters and how they can improve your accuracy and help you hit the 10-ring!
Continuing our series on airgun maintenance, this video tells you more about the ins and outs, the pluses and minuses, and the pros and cons of barrel cleaning. Sometimes, a barrel that appears dirty really isn’t! Stay tuned for another lesson in keeping your air gun in top condition.
Continuing with our series about how to properly clean airgun barrels, part 2 builds on what you saw in part 1.
We’ll take you through the paces of how to clean an air gun, which cleaners to use, the types of tools and when you’ll know your barrel is clean. Replay this as many times as needed to make sure you’ve got the basics before starting on your guns.
You already know that air guns are different than firearms. But did you know that airguns have different cleaning and maintenance requirements than firearms?
This is part 1 of a series about cleaning airguns. This episode tells you which airguns are most likely to need frequent cleaning and which ones will probably never need cleaning.
How do you know which caliber is best for what you want to do? If you hunt, do you want .177 or .22? What about .25 caliber? Is .20 caliber an optimal selection? What about target shooting? Or just plain plinking? If you have more questions than answers, then sit back and listen as we tell you some basic differences between the calibers and why you’ll want to pick one over another.
Airgun pellets come in a variety weights, sizes and shapes. Which one do you choose? It all depends on what you’re going to do. Will you be hunting? Then you might want to select a heavier hollowpoint pellet. Plan to shoot at paper targets? Then select a lighter-weight wadcutter, which will cleanly punch through the paper target and make it easier to score. No matter what you plan to do, picking the right pellet will help you be more successful. Watch our video to get spun up on airgun pellets!
