When looking for a pellet gun, everybody has their own criteria. What matters the most is intended use. Please read the short introduction below and an article linked below.
What is a Pellet Gun?
Simply put, a pellet gun is any kind of airgun capable of shooting pellets through the use of pressurized air. While this answer is deceptively simple, there are many types of pellet guns. Pellets are mostly made from lead. Main reason - lead is soft enough metal that can take on to rifling in the barrel and cause pellet to spin as it exits the barrel of the airgun. That allows the pellet to fly much more accurately than a BB that is shot from a smooth bore BB gun. Probably the most popular pellet guns are the ones powered by spring (or gas piston). You may have heard term break barrel air rifle - they are all pellet rifles, they are all designed to shoot pellets. Other types are the ones powered by CO2, and then of course multi-pump, and Precharged Pneumatics (PCPs). PCP airguns is the fastest growing segment of the market. Whether looking for a pellet pistol for short distance practice or a pellet rifle for longer ranges, we have you covered. Our #1 goal is to help you find the right pellet gun that fits your needs.
