View Full Version : Serious Pellet Pistol???

I want to purchase an accurate and powerful pellet pistol for back yard target shooting and small pest cantrol (mice & rats from the adjacent fields). My question is which pistol to buy and what caliber? I am willing to spend $400.00 for a Beeman P1 but have never handeled one before and am not shore if it will fit the bill.

Airpistols with spring pisotn actions are very hard to shoot accurately. The Benjamin Sheridan pistols work well, they are pneumatic and made right here, in the US of A.

I have this one. Webley Tempest bought thru Beemans. 177. I can shoot it pretty well (spring).

for clean kills on vermin at any sort of field distance. That's to say nothing about how much more practice it takes to shoot.
My suggestion? You could spend half that on a quality air RIFLE with good open sights, or get a nice package with the scope for about that same money. No vermin will be safe inside of 30-40yds or more, depending on the gun and your skill level.:)

Here's the "master key" link to all the research you can ask for:

You have a few choices. If you like the Beeman P1 you may want to look at the P3. It is far less money, very accurate, easy to shoot. Another very nice pistol that is also used for serious target shooting is the IZH-46M. This pistol is one of the highest quality air pistols for under $250. Another alternative is to purchase one of the custom made Crossman 2250's from Jim Giles at Crooked Barn. I have one of these as well. He does a great job with a custom breech and bolt, moderator, etc.

BTW, if you want to talk with a lot of serious air gunners go to the link below. While I am glad an air gunning area has been set up here on Glocktalk the link below is the de-facto area for all things about airguns, FT, etc.

Here is a link to my finished 2250...

That is a wild looking piece! What kind of accuracy potential?

Well this one was just shot a few minutes ago.

No where near as serious as my air rifles. But when I first told my son to grab an air gun he came up out of the basement with his air soft pistol. I sent him back down for a pellet gun and he came up with the crossman.

That's cool as hell!

I visited Jim Giles' site. He's got some cool guns that look to be reasonably priced, but I couldn't find much info. about the guns that he sells (are they pre-charged pneumatics or CO2? Caliber? Velocity?).

What's the velocity & caliber of your gun?

His pistols are C02. Mine shoots at about 580fps. Plenty for dispatching small unwanted pests and just great fun for plinking.
