Most Powerful BB Guns

What are the most powerful BB guns?

These are BB guns NOT pellet guns. Pellet guns only shoot pellets. These air guns will shoot BB’s and pellets.

Since there are BB pistols and BB rifles, I’ll discuss both BB gun types. Remember these air guns, pistols and rifles, are .177 cal and can shoot BB’s and pellets.

BB gun maximum power is in the 800 fps range. If you want or need more power than that, you need to look at pellet guns.

Most Powerful Pump BB Guns – Rifles

  • Winchester Model 1977XS – 1000 fps
  • Crosman Legacy 1000 – 800 fps
  • Crosman AirMaster – 800 fps
  • Daisy Powerline 880 – 800 fps
  • Daisy Powerline 901 – 800 fps
  • Umarex NXG APX Rifle – 800 fps
  • Remington 1100 Pump BB Gun – 745 fps
  • Crosman Classic 2100B Pump – 755 fps
  • Crosman Pumpmaster 760 – 645 fps
  • Crosman Recruit – 680 fps

Most Powerful CO2 BB Guns – Pistols

  • Crosman TACC11KT2 pistol – 550 fps
  • Crosman TACC1911BB pistol- 550 fps
  • Daisy Powerline 5172 pistol –  520 fps
  • Daisy Powerline 415 pistol – 495 fps

There isn’t much selection in power system types if you want the most powerful BB guns. In rifles, you have multi-pump and in pistols, you only have CO2 powered. Most BB pistols have muzzle velocities of 400 fps. The ones listed above are much more powerful.

There is a much better selection in BB rifles, if you want the most power. I have owned a Daisy Powerline 880, Crosman PumpMaster 760 and the Crosman Classic 2100b. They were all great BB guns with lots of power for small game hunting.
