Whats the bottom rail for?
Will a Williams peep sight work? On this gun?
It will attach to the gun, but the gun won't put pellets where you aim, so it won't work.
Yes. The 11mm base unit.
I'm curious to know how this version compares with Baikal's rifle. I like my Baikal but it is neither robust nor really accurate. And I'm sorry about that because I like the design. I'd be interested in this Air Venturi version IF it is any better. Do you guys have thoughts about that? Many thanks,
It's much worse than the Baikal.
Definitely fragile compared to other guns. Four out of six used by our Scout troop were broken after a day of use.
This is no better than the Baikal. It is not particularly robust or accurate.
Any idea if Air Venturi will offer separate magazines soon (other the IZH ones)? Thanks!
We will have TR5 magazines in the near future.
Is there a schematic of the TR5 somewhere ?
I disassembled a broken one and I don't think it's designed for user servicing. I bet if you send one in for warranty repair, they'll just send out a new one.
I guess not
Will the Air Venturi diopter sight work well with the current front sight on the TR5 ? And, Will extra cartridges be available soon? And just one more... What pellets are working great in these rifles?
The stated velocity is 500 PS? From your testing, what is the actual velocity? Pellets used?
Are there any available accessories for the UIT rail?
Can it be used without the clip?
This gun is a copy of the IZH61 , I have one of those I bought it from PA , about 4 years ago I love it if this about the same let me know please!!!!!
It was inspired by IZH 61
The AV TR5 is based on the IZH-61. It performs similarly. Time will tell if it is as good as the IZH-61
Will this rifle be legal for 10M shooting? Thanks.
Seeing as it is brand new, it has not been approved for 10m competition (sporter) at this time (Feb. 2019). If that changes, you will likely see something on the product page or in the 10m rules reflecting that.
Will izh 61 magazines work in these?
I have been told that they do work in this gun.
Canada's gun law states that an airgun must exceed both muzzle velocity of 500 fps AND muzzle energy of 4.2 foot-pounds/5.7 joules to be considered a firearm and this air rifle probably won't exceed both and so it should be available to Canadian customers. The crosman 2240 & 1322 are both available to Canadians here from PA, and they are both more powerful than this cool new side lever air rifle. The .22 caliber Diana chaser pistol & rifle kit are also more powerful and do ship to Canada.
The manufacturer rates it at 500 fps, we will see where they are at when they come in energy wise and go from there.
