Benjamin Trail NP XL 1500 with scope Review

The Benjamin Trail NP XL 1500 belongs to the beautiful NP XL airgun series . It has the smallest caliber of all (.177, the others are .22 and .25) but also delivers the fastest velocity . Although being made in the .177, you will be surprised when you know that this rifle delivers more than enough knockdown power to deal with pesky pests in your garden.

Gun Type

The Benjamin Trail XL 1500 features Nitro piston technology. A nitro piston gun (or gas-piston) works the same way as the spring gun does, but it has a nitrogen-filled gas ram instead of a coiled spring as the power source.  There is a nitrogen cylinder and a piston inside the chamber. The nitrogen in the cylinder is already held under pressure 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 gas expands and propels the piston forward. The piston comes swiftly after the air transferred port. The compressed air has nowhere to go but behind the pellet since the chamber is sealed completely. As a result, the pellet is discharged from the barrel due to propellant force from compressed air. Read more about pros and cons of nitro piston gun in this popular post .

The caliber (the internal diameter of the bore, measured in inches) is .177 (4.5 millimeter). It’s single shot, break barrel so it means that you can only shoot 1 shot at a time. After first shot, you have to break the barrel down to reload for the second shot. Single shot gun makes you discipline shooter: You have to make your shot count because you have only one chance to hit the target before reloading.

Winchester 1400CS Mossy Oak Review

winchester 1400cs mossy oak review

But is it good as its beauty? Let’s find out in this detailed Winchester 1400CS review.

Gun Type

The Winchester 1400CS is spring-piston air rifle which means that it gets power from coiled spring and a piston inside the chamber. The spring is compressed when you cock the gun so the small hook of the rear of the piston engages into the sear. When you pull the trigger, you release the hook, causing the spring to decompress. The released spring makes the piston move forward and causes the air to compress inside. As the result, the pellet is driven out of the barrel. Springer is cheap, simple to use, self-contained and consistent on performance. It’s one of 5 types of air gun you need to know before buying,

Winchester 1400CS has a caliber (the internal diameter of the bore, measured in inches) of .177 (4.5 millimeter). It’s a break barrel, single shot gun so you can only shoot 1 shot at a time. After the first shot, you have to reload the pellet manually to prepare for the second shot.

WellFire APS SR-2 Sniper Rifle Review

wellfire aps sr-2 modular bolt action sniper rifle

Not all air rifles are created equal.

Some are better than others.

Air guns for kids are no exception.

Some are fun to shoot and children-friendly while others are more or less than cheap toys.

Let’s find out if the WellFire APS SR-2 sniper rifle is the good, the bad, or the ugly in this review.

Gun Type

WellFire APS SR-2 is spring action airsoft gun. As the name suggests, spring airsoft rifles use a spring to fire a projectile out of the barrel. They work on mechanical power, meaning that the user must cock the gun after every round is fired. Spring-powered gun is straightforward, simple to use and can be very fun to shoot.

This gun is a bolt-action gun. The bolt is surprisingly easy to operate but there is one small problem with the bolt: should you pull it backward with your fingers holding the bolt’s top, you will cause the bolt’s handle to fall of when you yank it back. To prevent this from happening make sure you slide your fingers undereath the bolt’s outer piece, then you can pull it back without the threat of handle coming off.

The Wellfire APS SR-2 has full metal, tight bore barrel so it can deliver longrange shooting and last for years to come. It features small orange tip at the end to differentiate airsoft gun with the real firearm.

Umarex Octane Review

umarex octane air rifle combo review

Nobody wants to be ripped off.

And everyone’s afraid of trying new things.

Understanding customer’s thinking, many air gun manufacturers offer up to 1 year warranty for their rifles.

But not so much manufacturers like Umarex offer a generous 3 years limited warranty

So confidence in their products, I have to say.

And the over-expected warranty is not the only thing I love about the Umarex Octane rifle.

In the next 5 minutes, I’m sure you will nod your head and say ” I see what you mean” after reading this detailed review.

Gun Type

Umarex Octane air rifle a gas ram 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 reversed: meaning the gas strut is turned 180 degrees on its axis so the larger mass of the gas strut pushes the piston instead of the rod, thereby, it generates more power, velocity and impact than other gas pistons.

Now we know what ReAxis gas ram is, let’s take a look at its benefits over spring piston. First, you have smoother cocking since it doesn’t have spring torque like metal spring. Second, there is no spring fatigue even if you leave it cocked for hours so you don’t have to worry about the piston wear out over time. Third, ReAxis gas piston is not affected by weather. With the springer, the main spring is lubricated with grease so it becomes harder and tougher when the weather gets cold. ReAxis strut doesn’t have this problem and it functions perfectly in different types of weather. Fourth, ReAxis gas ram allows you to have smoother shooting experience with less recoil compared to spring piston. And finally, it lasts longer than metal spring. In the air gun world it is not uncommon to make spring compression over its standard threshold. This weakens the spring and shortens its life span. However, ReAxis gas piston doesn’t care about compression so you can enjoy long-time shooting with it.

Gamo Silent Stalker Whisper IGT Review

gamo silent stalker whisper igt air rifle | gamo silent stalker whisper igt air rifle  review | gamo silent stalker whisper igt air rifle  stock

We all hate stalkers.

Those who eat our food, live in our houses and leave trails that they were there for us to know.

Or those who sneak in our instagrams to see our photo, dig in our facebook profile and read every line of our tweets.

But in the hunting field, we want to be a stalker.

We want silence and stealth.

Because the worst thing is your prey run off right after you miss the first shot with the more-than-necessary sound.

And there is the gun named silent stalker

Cool!

Join me in this special review to see if this gun deserves that catchy name that sparks lots of curiosity (and excitement, too!)

Gun Type

The Gamo Silent Stalker Bull Whisper is powered by Inert Gas Technology (IGT). Gamo, not to be outdone by other air gun manufacturers, has made their own gas piston technology – IGT. While a spring-piston gun has tar and lube on the metal spring, the grease thickens when the temperature goes really low, a gas piston, on the other hand, needs no lube. Therefore, it won’t have any of the problems experienced by springers. Moreover, IGT gun has no spring torque, no spring fatigue even when you left it cocked for hours, and gives you smoother cocking . Finally, since there is no spring vibration when shooting, IGT rifle gives you smoother shooting and last longer than spring gun.

This gun is a single-shot break barrel rifle so it means that you can only shoot 1 shot at a time. After that, you have to reload the pellet manually for the next shot. Single-shot gun teaches you how to become better shooter: you know you have to make your first shot count because you have only one chance to hit the target before reloading for the second shot.

The barrel is rifled with helical grooves inside the bore to make a pellet spin. Spin makes pellet stable, improves accuracy and enhances shooting range. Moreover, Gamo Silent Stalker features ND52 – noise dampener technology that permanently fits on the muzzle and decreases the audible sound by 52% over the standard spring rifle. Having this amazing silencer on your rifle gives you lots of benefits: First, your hunting dog is less likely affected by noise. Second, it reduces recoil and muzzle blast. Third, it protects shooter hearing ability. And finally, it keeps sensitive neighbors happy while plinking in the backyard and will not disturb your shooting fellows in the range.
