Thankyou for choosing Single Shot Rifles.
Now that you have decided you want a single shot rifle, you must decide whether you want a break barrel style, or pump action style. I'll briefly explain the differences below.
- Break barrel style rifles shoot pellets. They are fired by breaking the barrel open, inserting a pellet into the chamber, and closing the barrel. The gun is ready to fire. You must do this everytime you want to fire a shot. Break barrel rifles can be very powerful, and are extremely accurate.
- Pump action rifles can shoot BB's, some shoot Pellets, and some shoot both. Pump action airguns are usually loaded by inserting a pellet clip, or hundreds of BB's into a reservoir in the gun. The gun is fired by pumping the handle, then pulling the bolt back then forward to chamber a pellet or BB. You must do both those actions everytime you want to fire a shot. The advantage is the gun usually holds a lot of ammo, and you can pump it to vary your power. For example, 1 pump is the weakest, 10 pumps is the strongest, and anywhere in between. Depending on the style of pump action gun, only 1 pump might be allowed, 1-5 pumps, 1-10 pumps, ect. It depends on the gun and the manufacturer. You must read the manual to determine how many pumps your gun requires, and how many pumps is the maximum. Pumping more than the manufacturer recommends as "max", could damage your airgun.
