Informative

This will be our final look at the Black Ops Junior Sniper air rifle combo. Today, I’ll mount the scope and shoot the rifle from 25 yards. I thought this report would just be about the rifle and scope; but, in fact, I learned 2 other very important lessons. So, today’s blog will be informative. There are also two short instructional videos.

Scope

The scope that comes with this combo is the cheapest kind of optical sight you can buy. It’s a 4x scope with a very skinny tube – less than .75 inches. The rings come already attached, so all I had to do was clamp them to the top of the rifle, and the job was done. That said, I had no idea if the scope would even be on the paper at 25 yards.

This report covers:

• Daisy Premium Grade BBs
• Hornady Black Diamond BBs
• Crosman Copperhead BBs
• Avanti Precision Ground Shot
• Summary

This is the report you’ve been waiting for. How accurate is the Black Ops Junior Sniper air rifle combo with steel BBs? Today, we’ll find out.

I went back to Part 2 and discovered that the rifle gets almost 500 f.p.s. on 3 pumps when shooting BBs. Since I was shooting at 16 and a fraction feet (5 meters), this was more than enough velocity for the test. It also sped up the test a bit.

This report covers:

• Crosman Premier lite pellets
• H&N Baracuda Match pellets, 4.53mm head
• Air Arms Falcon pellets
• Conclusion thus far
• What’s next?

Let’s look at the accuracy of the Black Ops Junior Sniper air rifle combo. I’m shooting lead pellets, only, and I’m shooting at 10 meters with open sights. This will not be the last test with pellets, because this combo does have a scope. But for today, I’m just getting used to the rifle and seeing how it does.

I decided to shoot 10 shots off a rest at 10 meters using 5 pumps of air. You can refer back to Part 2 to see what kind of velocity that gives me.

This report covers:

• Velocity baselining with Crosman Premier lite pellets
• Premier lite average for 5 pumps
• Premier lite average for 10 pumps
• Velocity baselining with Daisy BBs
• Daisy BB average for 5 pumps
• Daisy BB average for 10 pumps
• H&N Baracuda Match pellets with 4.50mm heads
• Gamo round lead ball
• Trigger-pull
• Evaluation so far

Today, we’ll look at the velocity of the Black Ops Junior Sniper air rifle combo. I told you last time that the loading trough is narrow and difficult to access, and I tried to photograph it for you but was unable to get a picture that showed what I’m talking about. Just take my word that this rifle has much less access room than a Daisy 880 or a Crosman 2100.

This report covers:

• What is it?
• The rifle
• Trigger and safety
• What to make of this airgun

Today, we’ll start looking at the Black Ops Junior Sniper air rifle combo. I have to admit, this is a rather radical departure for me. I’m not fond of black rifles of any kind, yet there’s something about this one that draws me in. This rifle is made for kids! At least that’s what the styling, name and box graphics seem to convey.

What is it?
The rifle is a stylistic black rifle (based on the M16 platform). It’s stylistic because no black rifle has a hole in the forearm like this one. And the barrel leaves the upper handguard differently than an M16 barrel. And the sights are different. And so on. But the object is to appeal to those who like the black rifle look, and I think they did that.
