  • Spring-piston breakbarrel
  • Single-shot
  • Anti-slam trigger/barrel safety system (anti-beartrap mechanism)
  • Ambidextrous, all-weather composite stock
  • Vented cheekpiece
  • Blued receiver
  • Rifled barrel

Designed for youth shooters, the Explorer breakbarrel is a great place to begin their first forays into shooting sports.  With a lightweight cocking effort (16.5lbs) and a total weight of 4.45lbs, this is a gun nearly anyone can handle.  

Each Explorer features a sleek black synthetic stock, skeletonized to reduce weight.  It's raised cheekpiece and 12" length of pull assures a comfortable hold.  

If you've got a youngster you feel is ready for the responsibility of shooting, the Explorer is a respectable addition to your collection.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: Size, pretty light, easy enough for a 6-year-old to load, pretty accurate, auto safety

Things I would have changed: It's not very powerful, Daisy multi-pump BB gun is obviously more powerful with just 5-7 pumps. Trigger pull is LONG but not too stiff.

What others should know: I use JSB 7.9 gr lead pellets in a pellet pen (so my boy doesn't touch them), some of the alloy pellets got stuck in the barrel...

Things I liked: The price, the size, almost too easy to cock. I wish I had bought this for my stepson a long time ago. I got him the Umarex Morph first and this gun is much easier for him to operate. He weighs about 50 pounds and can cock this gun easily. The trigger is also very light.

Things I would have changed: The trigger creep is long but at this price point its not an issue because there is no real competition size-wise.

What others should know: This is THE gun for your entry level shooter after they have mastered the red rider.

Things I liked: I just received the Ruger Explorer. I ordered it for grandchildren ages 9 to 13 years. While I haven't shot it yet, the fit, finish, sights, size, cocking energy required and design look excellent. It will be perfect for adolescent age kids to learn shooting.
