Air rifles can't be sent 'mail order' but they can be delivered to your local RFD subject to a fee. Or they can be collected in store. Please contact us for details.

Spring-piston guns operate by means of a coiled steel spring-loaded piston contained within a compression chamber, and separate from the barrel. Cocking the gun causes the piston assembly to compress the spring until the rear of the piston engages the sear. The act of pulling the trigger releases the sear and allows the spring to decompress, pushing the piston forward, thereby compressing the air in the chamber directly behind the pellet. Once the air pressure has risen enough to overcome any static friction and/or barrel restriction holding the pellet, the pellet moves forward, propelled by an expanding column of air.


Break Barrel

Break Barrel

Traditional break barrel air rifles - single shot and breech loading, powered by a spring and piston and generally achieving pretty consistent velocities. Break barrel 'springers' are most peoples entry to the world of air rifle shooting.

Underlever

Underlever

Underlever air rifles - single shot and breech loading, powered by a spring and piston and generally achieving pretty consistent velocities. Underlever 'springers' have a fixed barrel and a sliding breech so can be more accurate than some of the cheaper break barrel rifles.
