John Wayne Lil Duke BB Gun Rifle
Throughout his iconic film career, John Wayne trail-blazed across the silver screen, captured hearts worldwide, and portrayed courage in the face of all odds, as only he could. To honor the Duke's legacy, Air Venturi presents the Officially Licensed John Wayne Lil' Duke .177 Caliber Lever-Action BB Rifle. Aimed at beginners and younger airgunners, this lever-action repeater is a great way for pint-sized shooters to get involved in shooting sports, and start plinking away with a very user-friendly gun.
The 'Lil' Duke now includes Air Venturi's new LASSO Scope Mount which adds a 3/8 inch dovetail rail to the rifle accept a scope. This unique rifle features a stained wood stock etched with the Duke's likeness and the words "Lil' Duke" across the fore-grip. The big man's signature stands out in high relief on the action of the gun. Its large loop cocking mechanism makes for one of the easiest guns to cock and lock. The gun has a 550 shot capacity and launches BBs downrange at speeds up to 350 fps; perfect for knocking down cans and shredding paper targets.
BBs can ricochet. The shooter and everyone in the shooting area should wear safety glasses when a gun is being handled (even if it's unloaded). Remember to remove all pets from the area, as rebounding ammo can hit them, too. Never shoot steel BBs at hard objects (including metal targets) or water, as that increases the chance of ricochet.
|Max Velocity||350 fps|
|Rear Sight||Adjustable for elevation|

Things I liked: It's solid feel and workmanship. It comes with a Lasso mount for a scope and I got the upgrade Steel lever - glad I did! Nice finish on the stock and foregrip. Good looking- makes folks' eyes open wide!
Things I would have changed: Rather than rivets to hold the receiver to the stock, I would prefer bolts and nuts like the Red Ryder. That way if I wanted to Tru-Oil it I could remove the stock, for example. Make the imprint of "Lil' Duke" deeper on the foregrip - mine was a bit shallow at the top. The Duke's signature is painted on the receiver rather than engraved and will wear off eventually. I'd prefer engraving his signature highlighted with Forster's gold inlay.
What others should know: Hard to cock for a youngster, even after I oiled the lever joint - but that did help some. The foregrip is large compared to a Red Ryder - no problem, just something to know. The Lasso mount is easy to install. The manual instructions are clear and concise with good illustrations. Easy to load BBs. This hasn't been an accurate air gun so far. For accuracy the Red Ryders I have are much better. I added a Daisy Scope 4 X 15 to this Lil' Duke and it's been difficult to sight in - a few flyers make it tough.
Things I liked: Solid feel. Cocking loop tight and operates smoothly.
Things I liked: It is a great gun for a youngster and i like that it is a John Wayne Edition, keeps kids in the know how of the history of the west and cowboys and indians, really cool for kids, i know it was for me when i was a kid. Great job Pyramyd Air
Things I would have changed: Nothing!
What others should know: Have fun kids and don't shoot your eye out! LOL
