Air Venturi TR5 Multi-Shot Target air rifle
Tech Tip: We recommend seating the pellets into the magazine deeply. The use of a seating tool is recommended. Failure to seat the pellets deeply into the magazine may result in pellets falling out or moving within the magazine.
For many years, there has been a growing demand for a spring piston air rifle that both young and experienced shooters alike can enjoy. The Air Venturi TR5 is poised to meet that demand! A 5-position adjustable buttstock, that allows the user to fine tune the length of pull between 12.75" and 14.75" and a vertically adjustable buttpad make the TR5 truly customizable for all shooters. Not to mention, weighing in at just 5 lbs makes the rifle extremely easy to handle.
A sub 25 lbs cocking effort ensures a very easy and enjoyable shooting experience. The smooth side lever actuates a self indexing 5 round magazine, providing quick follow up shots. Two of these magazines are included to minimize your downtime.
Featuring a fully adjustable rear sight and a two stage adjustable trigger, the TR5 is at home on the target range just as well as your backyard. If you really want to zero in on targets, mount an optic of your choosing onto the 11mm dovetail. And for those looking to add other accessories, there is a UIT rail on the underside of the stock forend (commonly found on 10 meter competition rifles) where you can add a handstop, sling mount, or even a bipod.
With all of the adjustments, this multi-shot springer is bound to be a favorite for shooters of all shapes and sizes.

Things I liked: This rifle is very light and reminiscent in appearance to the IZH model 61 side lever spring rifle. The fact that it is magazine fed is also a plus. That is the whole list.
Things I would have changed: Fit, finish, accuracy, safety, etc. With the IZH prohibited for sale in the US apparently Air Venturi managed to get a replica licensed for production in China, I presume at the Snow Peak factory. While this rifle is reminiscent of the IZH, even to the point where the magazines are identical, it is not even close to the IZH 61. You cannot de-cock this rifle and since the magazine is trapped by the pellet probe after the last shot you have no option but to leave the mag sticking out the side of the action in the most vulnerable possible way. The lever release and lock is a catch pin, not the spring lever from the IZH, and if it is not securely locked down the lever will pop out upon firing and the anti-bear trap feature makes it impossible to return to closed. You are forced to cock the action or just leave the lever sticking out. Every detail of this rifle needs attention, redesign and refinement. A huge disappointment.
What others should know: In my opinion there are dozens of youth targeted plinking guns on the market that are so far beyond this rifle that you should not waste your money. I cleaned the rifle, lubed all the areas that seemed to need attention and checked the few screws and hardware attachments to make sure they were tight. I am no novice to spring guns; I currently own and shoot a Weihrauch HW97K, an RWS Diana 48 and a Hatsan Proxima. I have also shot springers by Crosman, Kral and Gamo. And I foolishly sold an IZH 61 years ago to a friend for his kids. The best group I could get from this gun at 10 yards was about 4" using Crosman Brown Box domes. The action is harsh. The cocking action is heavy and I did not even bother trying to adjust the "adjustable" trigger which out-of-the-box is quite heavy. The fact that it cannot be decocked and that your only option after the last shot is to leave the magazine sticking out the side of the action is absurd. This is similar to the IZH in looks only.
Things I liked: Bought this guy in the green. Great color for a change. Shot 250 Premium Crosman hollowpoints through it in the first afternoon I opened the box. At 15 yards it is fairly accurate with the stock sight. My eyes are not good so I am going to put a small scope on it. Still after about 100 shots it started to give me a 3" group. Got a little better the next 150 pelletsa. Seems to like those pellets. Part of the 3" group I am sure is me. Feels good in your trigger hand, nice trigger (haven't tried to adjust it yet), cocks easy and precise with the excepting that the arm pivot point is not solid. Adjustable stock is a good concept but found when cocking it I rest it on my knee while sitting at my shooting bench and the plastic part is very loose and will actually move to where the cocking arm hits it. Had to change my method of cocking so the stock won't interfere. If you are going to keep it extended I would tape it. Like the adjustable butt plate but needs to be more adjustable down.
Things I would have changed: I would tighten up the cocking arm so it isn't so loose. Latch takes some getting used to. Make the adjustable stock a little more solid. Otherwise happy with it at the $99 price point. Mine had the front sight slightly off center but once you sight it in it is OK. Quality Control....BE SURE you check ALL the exposed screws to be sure they are snug. What I presume the barrel screw is because of it's location was VERY LOOSE and I would say only finger tight at the least. Good Idea to do that anyway on any gun you purchase. The rest of the exposed screws were also loose. Be careful not to over tighten them. They may be just screwed into plastic? Butt plate adjustment needs to be longer. Again otherwise I am very happy with the rifle at a $99 price point.
What others should know: This is a $99 sport target rifle, not a professional target rifle. Great for keeping you busy. BUY MORE MAGAZINES. Reloading after 10 shots is not real time consuming but I think I will purchase about 10 more magazines. The five shots are GREAT ! Need to watch the magazine and after 3 holes show it is your last (5th) shot so you don't dry fire it. After warranty I will disassemble and clean it. It WILL smoke for about 50 shots and be inconsistent with power. You can hear and feel it in the gun when it fires. I think they over lube these rifles from China from my experience. Cleaned mine out with 250 pellets ! Buy one! They are inexpensive and actually fun to shoot. Will post again after I put a scope on it which I am sure will improve my groups. At 74 I am not seeing well.....That's why I have a 6foot x 8 foot back stop ! ! HAVE FUN
Things I liked: Good value at $100 for the green version. Would make a great first rifle for a child starting out, being compact and easy to cock. Have read reviews where accuracy issues have come up but the example I got has been fine out to 30 feet with the stock sights.
Things I would have changed: Cocking handle interferes with the bolt release, making it a little difficult to open the bolt after the last shot to extract the magazine. It can be done if you're careful not to pull the handle too far, but this is something that could have been dealt with when designing the thing. Wish it had a Picatinny rail instead of the M-Lok under it. Stock is pretty flimsy when fully extended.
What others should know: For $100 I consider the green version a good buy, but the extra cost for the black makes the cost v.s. value a little questionable. At the higher price there are what I consider better guns out there, but you also have to consider how kid friendly those other options are. I really don't need a scope since I wouldn't count on using this at much more than 50 feet, but I put cheap Winchester air gun scope on mine and it's holding up so far. Initially I was bracing the but plate against myself when cocking it, but after seeing how much the stock would flex this changed to holding the side of it against my waist.

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.
