Small game?

Postby RUGER » Mon Nov 18, 2019 12:06 pm

What is the best airgun to use for squirrels?
I would love to have one that would actually hit where you aim more than just every once in a while. LOL
I think that with a "solvent trap" would be a lot of fun and productive!
Pffft forget that, I'm going fishing.

AirForce Condor SS in .22 caliber would be the ticket. It is capable of 1250 FPS with 1 inch groups at 75 yards. (not likely with out a lot of scope adjustment and tuning)

My Texan SS .45 caliber is capable of 1 inch groups after the pressure drops to around 2700 PSI. Above 2700 Psi it tends to shoot some odd groups. So I always pump mine to 2700 and no higher.

Sumatra 2500 carbine .22 cal is a good hunting rifle and very powerful, not to mention having the metal rotary mag is a plus also

Beautiful gun for sure.

I have the Sumatra 2500 carbine in .25 cal and love it, even put a suppressor on it and man did that make a difference in the bark!

You looking for a break barrel or pre-charged pneumatic? PCP's are usually more accurate for long distance (and easier to shoot)
