The power in spring air pistols derives from a large mainspring, which compresses in order to store the kinetic energy which is used to control the piston and compact the air. When the trigger is pulled, the pressure pushes the projectile down the barrel.
The spring powered air pistols system within the airguns don’t require any gas refills, which is what makes this type of firearm perfect for hunting situations. Combine this with the fact that the gun isn’t sensitive to dips in temperature and you’ve got a reliable weapon for all seasons.
Spring air pistols may not be as technologically advanced as other arms on the market, but if you’re looking for consistent accuracy and excellent value for money, you can’t go wrong. In fact, springs are one of our most popular forms of firearm here at Allcocks.
