Are you ready to introduce a younger generation to the fun and satisfaction that the world of air gunning has to offer? Pyramyd Air is here to help, offering advice on how to choose an air gun for children of all skill levels.
Criteria to consider when shopping for air rifles include:
Of course, while things like being lightweight and easy to cock are important, the air rifle also needs to offer accuracy and reliability. The following air rifles are a little bit smaller and easier for kids to handle but are also high quality and fun to shoot:
The Air Venturi Bronco is the perfect air rifle to be shared between adults and children. Weighing in at only 6.5 lbs., the rifle features easy cocking and a nine inch barrel – making it perfect for smaller hands. Add in its 13” pull and its precision accuracy, and it is easy to understand why the rifle is suitable for shooters of all ages.
Touted as the most accurate BB gun in the world, the Daisy Avanti Champion 499 is perfect for children aged ten and up. In fact, the Jaycees use this rifle to train young shooters and millions of firearm and air gun shooters have used the Champion 499 to learn gun safety. While not designed for a scope, the rifle offers superior precision and accuracy, making it a great choice for shooting at paper targets.
Delivering superior accuracy for 10 meter shooting but sized for kids, the Anschutz 8001 Junior Air Rifle is great for your junior sized marksman. Reliable and easy to handle, this pre-charged pneumatic, bolt-action, single-shot target rifle delivers the same world-class accuracy of the adult Anschutz 10-meter air rifle.
Lightweight and built for small arms, the Air Arm T2000 Sporter delivers the type of world-class accuracy you have come to expect from Air Arms. Approved for Sporter Class competition, this pre-charged pneumatic air rifle was built for 10 meter shooting, making it a great choice for honing your little one’s target accuracy.

It's important to know that due to state and local laws, there are certain restrictions for various products.
It's up to you to research and comply with the laws in your state, county, and city.
If you live in a state or city where air guns are treated as firearms you may be able to take advantage of our FFL special program.
U.S. federal law requires that all airsoft guns are sold with a 1/4-inch blaze orange muzzle or an orange flash hider to avoid the guns being mistaken for firearms.
