Air Rifle & Pistol

Air rifle and pistol shooting is very disciplined because as the pellet travels so much slower than a bullet the handling and squeezing of the trigger is crucial. The rifle below is from the Anschütz website & the power is provided by compressed air -the tube visible under the barrel.

 


Air pistols work under a similar compressed air principle and in this picture from Steyr you can see the air pressure gauge. This is the LP-50 that takes a single or five shot magazine.
