Gas Ram

Gas Ram

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.

Some makes of air rifle incorporate a gas' ram' instead of a mechanical spring. Pressurized air or nitrogen is held in a chamber built into the piston, and this air is further pressurized when the gun is cocked. Gas ram units require higher precision to build, since they require a low friction sliding seal that can withstand the high pressures when cocked. The advantages of the gas ram include the facility to keep the rifle cocked and ready to fire for long periods of time without long-term spring fatigue, lower recoil and faster "lock time" (the time between pulling the trigger and the pellet being discharged). The improvement in lock time results in better accuracy.
