Airguns are different than firearms in many ways, but one of the most surprising is that airguns can be much harder on scopes and scope mounts than firearms. It’s not the power, it’s the two-recoil delivered by spring-piston airguns. Therefore, you need a scope stop for your spring guns, especially the powerful springers. Learn all about scope stops and scope-stop pins in this instructional video.
Underlever spring guns have become very popular in recent years. While use of these air rifles is pretty straightforward, there are some things you need to know. Watch the video to get spun up!
Sidelever spring-piston guns have been around for decades and represent some of the most popular springers sold today. One reason for the popularity of the sidelever is that it generally requires less effort to cock than a similarly powered breakbarrel. Therefore, sidelevers are often picked by hunters or shooters who plan to shoot a lot but don’t want to wear themselves out with repetitive cocking. Watch this video to see if sidelevers are right for you.
Breakbarrels are probably the most popular type of spring-piston air rifle. They’re easy to use and don’t need a lot of accessories to get started. Just add a tin of pellets and you’re ready to shoot. This introductory video will show you what to expect when shooting a breakbarrel springer.
