THE PERFECT SPRING GUN SHOT

Follow these 12 steps for improved results.

  • 1. Spring piston airguns take 500-1000 shots to break in. Groups may be erratic for the first 100 shots or so.
    .
  • 2. “Do not” bench rest on ANY solid object! Rest your hand and place the gun in your hand. Even better, buy an inexpensive sand bag and fill with sand.
    .
  • 3. Rest the stock on the sand bag. “Never” the barrel.
    .
  • 4. Do not pull the trigger if the barrel is bent down. The barrel will fly up, bend and could cause Injury. A cracked and/or broken stock will occur. Guaranteed!
    .
  • 5. Whether your rifle is a break barrel or underlever, you should always keep one hand on the cocking lever.
    .
  • 6. Hold the gun “loosely” at the fore-end, at the grip, and in the shoulder. Spring guns become “inaccurate” if held tightly.
    .
  • 7.Changing your shooting position or grip can and will change your point of impact.
    .
  • 8. Scopes should be mounted 2.75″ to 3″ away from your eye.
    .
  • 9. Squeeze the trigger, don’t jerk or pull it.
    .
  • 10. After squeezing the trigger, stay on target for a couple of seconds. Follow through is very critical!
    .
  • 11. Remember each rifle is an individual and has its own characteristics. To achieve the best performance, you should try a sampler pack of pellets to see which pellet your gun shoots the best.
    .
  • 12. Your rifle, your pellet, and your scope doesn’t know where the target is. It’s up to you to point it straight!

Good luck and shoot straight!
