THE Best Air Rifles for Beginners
We offer a wide range of specialized airguns just for this group with the focus on affordability, safety and quality. You can choose from a heap of well-known brands including Daisy, Crosman, Gamo, Umarex and others. Our offer of beginner air rifles has a number of specs, like calibers, powerplant, fire modes and types of ammunition to make your choice much easier. Check out our blog post or contact us directly if you have any other questions concerning the choice of an airgun. We are always happy to help you. Here are a few important things to watch out for:
Important Specs for Choosing a Youth Air Rifle
Weight – Always remember that a heavy rifle is harder to handle. You can neutralize this problem with a bipod or a shooting rest. Length – Length is an important factor for comfortable manipulation with a rifle. Air Rifle Powerplant – PCP and CO2 airguns are considered to be the best but some less powerful break barrel air rifles might be a good stepping stone for beginners. Cocking Mechanism – CO2 airguns require minimal effort to cock them and are usually outfitted with a magazine. To fully cock a break barrel rifle might be a problem for young shooters. Iron Sights vs. Scope – Every beginner should master basic iron sights first. Slightly advanced shooters can try an air rifle with a scope.
The term youth airgun might be a bit misleading. An air rifle is first and foremost a weapon. It might be available to everyone who has reached 18 years of age but it’s still a weapon nonetheless. It can cause some serious damage. You should always keep your child under good supervision and always follow the safety rules concerning the use of an airgun.
