Purchase A CO2 Air Rifle Today
CO2 air rifles can be used for a range of activities, including plinking and target shooting. Among the manufacturers that offer lines of air rifles are Benjamin, Crosman, Daisy and Sheridan. The models are typically powered in one of three ways. Many feature spring pistons, which must be cocked prior to each shot. Other models use pneumatic systems, some of which can be pumped a variable number of times to control the velocity of shots. Lastly, air rifles may be powered by CO2 or compressed air. Some CO2 air rifles use small cartridges while others employ larger tanks.
Alternatives to CO2 Air Rifles
While CO2 air rifles can be used for target practice and plinking, other rifles may be more appropriate for hunting and pest control. Break-barrel rifles can be used for both hunting small game and for target shooting. Among the popular models of break barrel are:
- The Diana RWS 34, available in .177 and .22-caliber models
- The Beeman B26-2
- The Benjamin Sheridan Super Streak
- The Crosman Sierra Pro
- The Hammerli 490 Express
Other options include the air rifles from Sheridan. The .20-caliber models can be used for a range of activities, including paper target shooting and shooting at spinners. While the Sheridan Blue Streak and Silver Streak models have been made for decades, they continue to be popular models.
