Let’s find out if this air rifle is overrated in this review.

Gun Type

Ruger Air Hawk is a spring piston gun. As the name suggests, there are a coiled spring and a piston inside the chamber. When you cock the gun, you make the spring compress until the little hook of the rear of the piston engages into the sear. When you pull the trigger, you release the hook and make the spring decompress. The decompressed spring moves forward and applies pressure on the air inside. As a result, the pellet is pushed out of the barrel due to the propellant force from compressed air. Spring piston guns tend to be simple to use, self-contained, and have impressive accuracy. You can read more about spring piston gun’s pros and cons in this post.
Ruger Air Hawk is a break barrel gun which means that you have to cock it each time you want to shoot. Break barrel gun is easy to load pellets because the breech is exposed when it breaks open.

Benjamin Titan GP Review

benjamin titan gp air rifle reviews| benjamin titan gp air rifle review | benjamin titan gp air gun reviews

This rifle may be branded as either Crosman #C8M22NP or Benjamin #BW8M22NP. This is the same air rifle made by the same manufacturer. Crosman has changed this model into the name of Benjamin but no changes made in terms of quality or construction of the gun.

Gun type

The Benjamin Titan GP is a gas ram gun, powered by nitro piston technology. A nitro piston gun (or gas piston gun) works the same as the spring gun but it has a gas-filled cylinder instead of a coiled spring. The air in the cylinder is already compressed and you apply more pressure to it when you cock the gun. The pressurized air is kept under tension until you pull the trigger. When you fire, the pellet is propelled downrange the barrel due to the propellant force from compressed air. Nitro piston rifle is lighter and last longer than the spring gun. Besides, it is less recoil and easier to cock. Furthermore, it can be left cocked for days because there is no spring fatigue. Read more about nitro piston technology in this post to see how it can make your gun sport more breathtaking.

This rifle is available in both .177 and .22 caliber. While .177 is popular and a perfect choice for target shooting, .22 is the king of hunting and is the go-to caliber for hunters and pest eliminators.

Also remember that accuracy holds true for both calibers: .177 is not more accurate than .22 and vice versa.

Benjamin 397 Review

In 1992, Crosman Corporation, manufacturer of air gun and air gun accessories, brought Benjamin Sheridan in its entirety. Crosman closed the operation in Racine in 1944 and moves the production line to its home location in East Bloomfield, New York. The manufacturing of  Benjamin Model 397 also took place here since that time. Although this rifle has been made for decades, Crosman continues to put extra nice features here and there to keep the classic live up with its name. And you can find out all of them in this detailed review.

Gun Type

The Benjamin 397 is multi-pump pneumatic air gun. The variable pump rifle has a piston and a cylinder inside the chamber. When you cock it, the piston creates high pressure. The high pressure is forced pass the cylinder valve and is stored in the cylinder. When you shoot, the pressure is directed around the valve and up into the chamber . As a result, a pellet is discharged out of the barrel. You can read more about pump pneumatic gun in this post.

The Benjamin 397 has a caliber of .177 (4.5 millimeters). It is break barrel rifle meaning that you have to cock the gun each time you want to shoot. Besides, it is single-shot action so you can shoot only one shot at a time. Single-shot action gun gives control over the type of pellet you gonna shoot.

Ruger Yukon Review

The design of this air rifle is so sleek and appealing. They say don’t judge the book by its cover but what a wonderful book it is if it has great content and a beautiful cover, hah?

Gun Type

Ruger Yukon is a gas strut air gun. It is powered by ReAxis gas piston technology. Surprisingly, Umarex is the first mainstream air gun manufacturer who actually reverses the direction of the gas ram. They claim that by doing so, you get more power and reliability. We have to see if it works out at the end of this review but first thing first, how ReAxis gas piston works?

Basically, ReAxis stands for Reverse Axis. According to Umarex, unlike the nitrogen-filled gas piston, the ReAxis piston is reverse: meaning the gas strut is turned 180 degrees on its axis so the larger mass of the gas strut pushed the piston instead of the rod, thereby, it generates more power, velocity and impact than other gas pistons.
