Air Pistol: Vintage Air Guns & Target Airpistol
Air pistol is a type of handgun that relies on the compression of air or gas to fire projectiles. In most cases, metal projectiles are used as ammunition in air pistols, and these include metal pellets and zinc or copper-plated steel balls called BB. Air guns that use BB ammunition are often referred to as BB guns. There are also air guns that fire plastic projectiles, and they are called airsoft guns.
Air pistols come in different calibers, and the most common ones are .177”, .20”, and .22”. The .177” caliber air gun is the preferred type of gun for those who participate in shooting sports. It is the most accurate air gun, since it has a very flat trajectory. Many European air guns and America’s Sheridan air guns are .20” caliber guns. A gun of this caliber has a trajectory that is almost as flat as the .177” air gun, but it has better energy retention. Since its pellets are elongated and they weigh almost the same as .22” pellets, they are more aerodynamic than both the .177” and .22” pellets. The .22” air gun is commonly used for hunting small game, because it delivers greater impact than the smaller caliber guns.
Air pistols obtain the power they need to fire projectiles by one of three methods, and these are the spring piston, CO2, and pneumatic. An airpistol that functions by the spring piston method has to be cocked before it is fired. The cocking will compress the spring, and the pulling of the trigger will decompress it. When the spring is released, it will launch the ammunition. On the other hand, the CO2 air gun model does not require cocking; it needs containers that are filled with CO2. As such, it is costlier to operate, and it is often not as powerful as other types of air guns. Nonetheless, it allows the user to fire at a rapider rate. There are two kinds of pneumatic air guns, and they are the single stroke and multi-stroke designs. The single stroke pneumatic air gun has to be cocked, while the multi-stroke one requires pumping.
Air pistols can be used for hunting, controlling pests, and recreational shooting. They are also used for target shooting in competitive sports events. The type of air gun that is used for target shooting is called a target airpistol, and some of the competitions that require the use of such pistol are the Olympic 10 m Air Pistol, Field Target, and Hunter Field Target. The Field Target competition requires participants to shoot metal plates that are shaped like animals from certain distances.
The oldest air gun that is in existence today dates back to the late 16th century, and this means that air guns were invented at least four hundred over years ago. Many hunters in the past preferred to use air guns, because they could be used in the rain and fired at a rapid rate. The French and Austrian armies also used air guns for sniping. Even though the air pistol has become more accurate, durable, and reliable over the years, some air gun enthusiasts still prefer to use vintage air guns, simply because they are more powerful. Vintage air guns are also highly sought after by antique collectors.
