I have been looking into an accurate high quality/high velocity air rifle on and off for a year or two. I don't want a multi-pump or CO2 cartridge requirement, just one single swing of the break-barrel action.

I also desire over 1,000 FPS; seems more than a few are in the neighborhood of 1,300.

Anyone have recommendations?



I don't have any firearms. I lost them all years ago in an unfortunate boating accident.

I have this one: https://www.pyramydair.com/s/m/Black...fle_Combo/3483

It's one heck of an airgun. Really heavy, so not a great woods walking gun. What do you want to use it for?

They seem to have updated it since I got it and it now includes iron sights; can't speak on those, but know the sight it comes with is pretty bad. Get a nice airgun rated scope and it shoots very well!

As far as FPS, that's a very big hot topic in the airgun world. Lots of the so called 1300fps guns are over rated and don't shoot that high.

I guess it mostly depends on what you want it for...this is great target shooter but really too heavy and awkward to carry around.

What is your budget?

You definitely want a gas piston gun...spring guns with a lot of power aren't nearly as good as a gas piston!

Here is probably the best website for airguns out there: https://www.pyramydair.com/a/Air_gun...air_rifles/372

There is a whole page you can look through with all kinds of choices and prices

Hellion, here is an excellent deal on a Gamo airgun: https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/pr...rrel-air-rifle

I just ordered one and it was $112 total using a $5 off coupon that Honey found for me (using Google Chrome).

Can not beat that price for a break barrel, piston powered airgun! Sale ends soon so get one while they are on sale.

Reviews say the scope isn't good, but the money you save you can use to buy a better one.

I hope someone else buys one!!
