Lets See Those Air Guns!
#1
With ammo becoming more scarce I've started shooting air rifles more and more to keep my game up. .22 is hard to come by these days and for plinking you can't beat a good selection of air rifles anymore to suit the need. I hope to get a few nicer pellet guns like the break barrel ones Gamo offers when I get the chance but for now we have two BB guns to practice trigger discipline and sight alignment. It's fun to try to ring steel targets at 25-50 yards too!

So, whatcha got forum?

First I've got an antique Crosman V-350 slide action I acquired from my grandmother a few years ago that had been sitting around collecting dust. She didn't know what kind of gun it was and just handed it down to me because she doesn't use it. It's pretty neat! I've never seen one like it before. I guess it is an air rifle that came out in the 60's and still works well today. It holds 21 BB's in the magazine that is loaded from a hole in the top of the receiver, has adjustable rear sights for elevation and cocks by grabbing the barrel and sliding it all the way straight back to the rear and back.

The next one is a simple Daisy 105 Buck that I got for the boy when he turned 4. He still loves shooting it and I enjoy plinking with it too. It holds something like 200 BB's, lever action and fiber optic front sight. Sight aren't adjustable though.

Lately I've got an old pot set up at about 25 yards from my front porch and it's fun just to sit and ring that pot for a while. I've got to aim about a foot high with the Daisy but I can adjust the Crosman to correct for elevation. We have competitions to see who can ring the pot the most times in a row lol! It's fun and hardly costs a dime when I get the urge to shoot. We have the little .22 spinner steel target from Winchester too that is fun to crack at. Someday I'd like to have a bunch of silhouettes set up on the range for plinking too whether its pellets, BB's or .22's whenever the ammo starts appearing again.



So, LETS SEE THOSE AIR GUNS!!!

My Daisy Powerline 880 that was bought back in the early 80's won't hold a charge anymore. Sad

Mine did the same thing, put some tool oil on the rings and let it soak overnight. It worked wonders for mine!

I just tore mine down and greased the o-rings. Now it's holding a charge and shooting well. I also added a little Tasco 4x15 scope that I had laying around. I will get those squirrels that are getting into my crawlspace.

I bought a Ruger Red Hawk Elite a few years ago, and inherited a Slavia 620 that is in great condition.

Some of the high end air guns cost more than a real firearm. My brothers grandson has a very nice one (Dont know the maker) with a scope. Its a break barrel .22 cal pellet gun and thing can reach out and get ground hogs at pretty good distance.

That's what has kept me from buying a 9mm air rifle.

No fooling. Just look at the search option in the calibers on the left.
