Best powerful air rifles in India

Shooting is one of the most popular outdoor activities in India. Shooting is not only a great way to spend time outside, but it’s also a sport anyone can enjoy, regardless of their age or ability.

If you are a fan of guns, then this is the perfect activity for you. You can try your hand at different weapons, including airguns, and see how accurate you are. The air gun comes in both

long-range (air rifles) and hand-targeted (airsoft gun).

India has some of the best shooting ranges in the world, and there are plenty of options for both beginners and experts. So you are sure to find one that suits your interests and skills.

We reached out to the good folks over at Airgunkart to get a little expert advice.

Airgunkart recommends choosing an air rifle that uses either a pre-charge pneumatic (PCP) or spring-loaded (“springer”) power plant. The former uses pre-loaded compressed air (delivered via an electric or hand pump) and the latter uses a big spring to compress air and fire the pellet (not unlike your kid’s Nerf gun).

There are pros and cons to both systems. We’ve chosen three PCP guns and two springers to give you some variety, but our primary goal is to give you a place to start. There are many more options than the five listed below, but these are some of the best and most readily available.
