The power of a spring air rifle comes from a large mainspring, which is compressed to store kinetic energy to work the piston, which then compacts the air and propels the projectile.
The great thing about the spring powered air rifle system is that is doesn’t require any gas refills. This is what makes spring rifles the ideal choice for hunting scenarios, as well as the fact that the gun isn’t vulnerable to changes in low temperature, which means you’re getting the same performance come rain or shine.
Spring air rifles may not be as high-tech as other forms of firearm on the market these days, but if you’re looking for high accuracy and value for money, you can’t go wrong. In fact, springs are one of our most popular forms of firearm here at Allcocks.
