Types of Air Rifles
Break Barrel Air Rifles
Break Barrel Air Rifles, also called break action rifles, are the most popular type of airguns used for hunting and pest control. These air rifles are powered by moving a piston located in the receiver to the rear as the hinged barrel is pulled downward. The piston is then locked against a strong spring. When the rifle is fired, this piston is pushed forward at a high velocity, and it then compresses the air in the chamber ahead of the piston thus forcing the pellet down the barrel. Break action air rifles can shoot at velocities of 1,000 feet per second or more. One downside to break action rifles is that by design, they result in reduced accuracy compared to other air rifle types.
Variable Pump Air Rifles
Variable Pump Air Rifles are designed so that several strokes of the pumping mechanism will force air into a chamber where it is held under high pressure until the gun is fired. With variable pump rifles, you can control the power of a shot by pumping the rifle more or less times. These air rifles will have a maximum pellet velocity that is based on a number of different factors, but in general pump air rifles fire at intermediate velocities. A benefit of variable pump air rifles is that they offer excellent accuracy making them ideal for hunting pests and small game.
PCP Air Rifles
PCP Air Rifles, also known as pre-charged Pneumatic guns, use a pre-compressed air source that is built in to the gun to propel the projectile. Therefore, prior to shooting a PCP air rifle, you must use an external hand pump to fill this air reservoir. A main benefit of the large air reservoirs in PCP rifles is that they offer a number of shots in between pumping and are the most powerful of all air rifles manufactured today. PCP air rifles are also versatile airguns as they offer adjustable power levels.
CO2 Air Rifles
While most CO2 airguns are pistols, there are a number of CO2 powered air rifles available from leading manufacturers. CO2 air rifles are convenient because the small container of CO2 gas can be held within the gun and used to fire a number of shots without pumping at velocities up to 600 feet per second. The major disadvantage of CO2 powered air rifles is that the amount of power that the rifle can generate is highly dependent on temperature, and therefore, on colder days this will result in lower pellet velocities.
