The Air Venturi AV-46M Match Air Pistol breathes life back into a legendary airgun from the past that features Russian technology just like its predecessor. Produced by well known Russian barrel manufacturer, Alfa Precision, shooters can rest assured that both overall quality and accuracy is still at the heart of this match air pistol. With velocities up to 480 FPS and a light pumping effort of about 18 lbs., this is an excellent entry level match pistol for those new to 10-meter competition or looking for a good target airgun.

This air pistol has many of the features competitive shooters look for, including a fully-adjustable 2-stage trigger that adjusts for the length of the first and second stage pull, as well as pull weight and blade position. In addition, the airgun allows for dry-firing, so that users can practice shooting skills such as breathing, grip, trigger control and follow-through without using up pellets or pumping the lever.

The AV-46M includes high-quality target sights, with a rear sight that fully adjusts for windage and elevation, and a fixed front post sight. Additionally, the attractive red and black laminate grip offers an adjustable palm shelf that can also be completely removed if desired. Along with the trigger, these various adjustments are responsible for the extreme accuracy capabilities of this air pistol.

For a competition-quality single-stroke pneumatic airgun with astounding precision and capabilities competitive shooters need, get an Air Venturi AV-46M Match Air Pistol today at Pyramyd Air.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: This pistol is simply awesome. It is very accurate and not picky to pellets.

Things I would have changed: Contrasting front sight (both rear and front sights are black and blend with target, so I putted the piece of yellow tape on the front sight)

What others should know: After simple adjustment can fire 10 shots (10 yards, free hand) with less than spread of a penny (I believe it is pistol's accuracy, or maybe the Russian with Russian pistol chemistry). The best pellets for this pistol are: RWS Meisterkugeln (7.0 Grains), RWS Hobby (7.0 Grains), JSB SCHaK Middle Weight (8.02 Grains), JSB Match Diabolo Exact RS (7.33 Grains), JSB Simply Pellets (8.26 Grains), Sig Venom Round (7.87 Grains), H&N Sport (8.18 Grains)

Things I liked: The pistol looks cool and the cocking effort is extremely easy due to the linkage except for the last bit of the uncock which pops open the breech. I hope that loosens up a bit with some breaking and lubrication. The wrist angle is modern unlike a lot of alternatives in the price range. The grip fits very well out of the box. The SSPs are easy to use without getting into scuba tanks etc. The sights give you a lot of variation, adjust easily and you can set it up for a sub six hold. The feel for the gun is right. This seems like the lowest price "entry level" 10 m gun available. I competed last year with a borrowed LP300. I also have/had a 777, FWB 65, G6 and FAS. The grip angles, cocking, sights and feel of those aren't as good. you'd have a difficult time getting setup for sub six hold without permanent modification to the rear sights. The 65 and FAS have nice triggers too, but the FAS is low on power (dirty holes) and I couldn't cock the 65 without tiring my wrist.

Things I would have changed: My gun would randomly lose air before I could take a shot. Lubrication of the piston seal as mentioned in the manual didn't fix it. I read pilkguns information on the pistol and lubricated through the transfer port holding the muzzle down which gets to the valve seal and this resolved the problem. The manual should mention this and also consider shipping with some lube. The IZH came with a little tool kit and with this one you get just the alternative rear sight. The back of the palm shelf has a very sharp uncomfortable edge but it seems to be better with the grip adjusted to be a bit looser. The trigger could have more first stage weight, like 450 grms, but this is a feature usually found in the full price pistols.

What others should know: The rear sight blade screw threads are "backward" because you're turning the bottom of the screws. Use righty loosey. See notes on lubrication. The gun is a bit heavy and nose heavy but this helps me with stabilization. The price is good in that a new IZH from overseas or a used one on ebay are about the same. You get one that hasn't been "improved". This pistol has the right modern feel compared with other entry level guns. I havent shot many full matches yet but I think I could rapidly get into the 530s having shot 540s last year. I'll update after more experience.

  • Sergey from USA asked:

    How and when we can have an option to buy grip only as a replacement? Will it fit IZH-46M?

    • peter from USA asked:

      Can you ship it with some lubricant or recommend a lubricant to purchase in the description. The pistol may not hold air out of the box without a refresh of lubricant.

      • Phil from USA asked:

        When will you be getting this Air pistol in left left hand Us lefties always have a difficult time finding.
