I’ve always liked Crosman. I grew up with a Crosman 760 pump pellet gun in the 70’s. I shot many birds in my backyard. It was a blast.
The Crosman 2240 is a CO2 powered .22 caliber pellet handgun. It features a bolt action and cross bolt safety. The 2240 is mostly made from steel and not plastic like other pellet guns. Muzzle velocity with standard weight .22 cal lead pellets is around 460 fps. This is plenty of power to hunt small game with. This is a powerful and accurate pellet gun that is well made. Since it’s CO2 powered, you won’t have to break the barrel or pump it up before you shoot. Follow up shots are pretty quick. You only have to chamber a pellet in the bolt action.
I like the 2240. It feels good in my hands and has a good weight. The sights are pretty good for target shooting and close quarters hunting. CO2 pellet guns are great because you can shoot more in less time. I really don’t like spending more time pumping than shooting.
The Sig Sauer MCX CO2 pellet rifle is a realistic assault type gun. It looks and feels very much like a real Sig Sauer AR-15. It’s CO2 powered so you can shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger. It takes the 88/90 gram CO2 cartridges. The magazines holds 30 pellets in a belt. It retails for $221.00 but you can save $22.00 and get free shipping here….Sig Sauer MCX CO2 Pellet Gun at Amazon.com
The Umarex Steel Storm is an auto, well 6 shot burst at full auto, CO2 powered pistol. You can select either single shot or 6 round bursts. With proper trigger control, you can get full auto. This is a very cool air pistol. The CO2 cartridges are stored inside the pistol grip. It’s great for blasting bottles, cans, oranges, clay targets, etc. It has a reservoir for 300 BB’s. The muzzle velocity is 430 fps and retails for $129.
