This semi-automatic .177 caliber pellet pistol is a replica of the U.S. Army issued P320 M17 and is field strippable like its centerfire counterpart. It has the […]
As you might guess from the name, the Hatsan BullBoss air rifle is… hang on to your shorts… a bullpup design. If you’re not up on esoteric gun terminology, that means merely that the action is set far back in the stock. The chamber, magazine, and bolt are all located behind the grip and trigger […]
Yes, you read that right. The new Crosman DPMS SBR Airgun offers full-auto operation. Or you can be all technical about things and refer to it as a “select fire” rifle. Yes, this package of pure BB fun has a safety selector switch just like those on modern sporting rifles, but with one very significant […]
Rock Island Actions is well known for their near-continuous firearms auctions. Old, new, collectibles, and truly priceless items are there for the finding. As it turns out, the company handles the occasional collection of antique airguns too. Got an itch for a pair of Girandoni repeating air pistols made in 1810? Or maybe you prefer […]
Sound suppressors are often referred to as “cans.” In the case of the AirForce Texan SS Airgun, that seems to be a literal engineering goal, but I mean that in a loving and complimentary way. You see, the raison d’être of the Texan SS is big bore performance without the noise. The standard AirForce Texan features […]

Anyone know a reputable personal shopping concierge? I’m stumped for an appropriate gift idea for a 50th-anniversary celebration. I think that’s the one where you’re supposed to give gold, but as much as I like the folks at Crosman, I don’t foresee Fed-Ex-ing ingots anytime soon. What’s the occasion, you ask? Well, the air rifle […]
You can always recognize an AirForce Airgun from a couple of miles away. That distinctive “Space Force” shape isn’t just for Sci-Fi cosmetic appeal – the company’s iconic use of the air reservoir tank as the buttstock is also an efficient use of space and weight. If you have to have something on which to rest […]
Bulldogs have a storied history even if they do look like they lost a game of chicken with a parked mail truck. According to Wikipedia, they’re “a muscular, hefty dog with a wrinkled face and a distinctive pushed-in nose.” That’s a much kinder way of describing that unfortunate postal vehicle accident, but I digress. Bulldogs were also associated with Winston Churchill’s heroic posturing back in the big war. Described by BBC, “to many, the Bulldog is a national icon, symbolising pluck and determination.” You know it’s a legit British quote because they spelled “symbolising” with an “s”.

While the Airbow is a nifty tool for hunting applications and perforating trees with arrows, the Bulldog has many practical applications too. While, like the Airbow, its looks are non-traditional, it’s got everything you’d expect in a big bore air rifle, even if it shares that flattened nose with our iconic English canine.
