Best Air Rifle Reviews

For as long as I can remember I’ve been shooting air rifles. I love everything about it from the way holding a gun feels to the sound of the gun firing. Now that I’m a father and getting my own sons into the art of shooting, I figured it was time to share my knowledge with other air pistol enthusiasts. Whether you’re looking for a gun to pursue small game hunting or just for target shooting I can tell you everything you need to know. Now let’s explore the top 5 air pistols of 2014.

Top 5 Air Rifles of 2014

1. RWS .177 Pellet Model 34 Combo Rifle
Let me start by saying if you’re looking for a gun that’s great for hunting that there is no need to look any further. Everything about this air rifle makes it perfect for small game shooting. It’s safe to say that no other air pistol can come close to the break barrel design on this gun. It is extremely durable; RWS truly outdid themselves. Another great feature about this rifle is that it comes with lifetime warranty, meaning you won’t have to worry if your gun malfunctions. The gun also comes equipped with a 11 mm scope rail and an adjustable 2 –stage trigger. This gun is great, though it does come at an expense of $275.

2. Gamo Silent Cat
The Gamo Silent Cat does not come with lifetime warranty such as the RWS .177 but it does, however, come with a one year limited warranty when purchased on Amazon at a low price of $148. This gun weighs a mere 5.3 pounds and is 46” in length. It shoots 0.177 caliber lead pellets at 1200 fps with PBA. Some other great features include its break barrel single cocking system along with the fact it comes equipped with a 4×32 scope. This gun makes a great buy.

3. Evanix Hunting Master AR6
You know it’s a good gun when it’s being called the most powerful air pistol today. Much like the RWS .177 pellet model mentioned before, this rifle was made for hunting. Before even thinking about purchasing this gun you should know that it’s in the upper $500 range, but for good reason. This gun shoots .22 cal pellets and does not jam, which, might I say, is an important feature. It is a little heavier than the Gamo Silent Cat at 6.82 pounds but still not bad. I’ve used this gun on multiple occasions and it is one of my all-time favorite air rifles. It is definitely worth the price tag if you can afford it and are going to be doing a decent amount of shooting.

4. Crosman Nitro Venom
The best thing about this gun is how silent it is. You’ll be sure to never give away your position while hunting with the Crosman Nitro Venom. Just like most of the guns reviewed so far, this rifle shoots .177 caliber pellets. It’s a little bit heavier than some guns at 7.4 pounds but still manageable. The entire length of the gun is 44.5 inches and it comes equipped with a centerpoint 3-9×32 mm scope. You can purchase this gun on Amazon for just $140.99.

5. Crosman 1077
For the low price of $69.99, you can’t beat this air rifle. It is extremely light at only 3.69 pounds and measures 36.88 inches in length. This gun takes .177 caliber pellets as well. Before purchasing this rifle you should know that it’s more for target shooting than hunting. One great feature about this air pistol is that it shoots the instant you pull the trigger. There is absolutely no delay time. This gun is perfect for anyone wanting to target shoot or for anyone that wants a good air rifle at a great price.
