For many years air guns were powered by a metallic spring which, when compacted, released energy that forced a projectile along the barrel. These days you can opt for gas ram air rifles, which use a pneumatic ram engine filled with inert nitrogen.
Gas springs are capable of lasting for years, compared with steel springs which have a much narrower lifespan. Gas ram air rifles rarely leak, so whether they’re under tension or not, they still retain all their power.
Gas powered air rifles are a very popular choice for the field because gas springs react more quickly than coil springs, which means the weapon is capable of releasing the projectile much faster. Allcocks stock an extensive range of gas ram airguns, which means that you can venture out, knowing you’re backed up by reliable, powerful weaponry.
