Vintage airguns have an unusual similarity with black powder (BP) guns. Listen as Tom compares some of his favorite vintage airguns (FWB 30, Walther LG 55, BSF 54 and FWB 124) with collectible BP guns, such as the Marlin Ballard, trapdoor Springfield and Pennsylvania long guns.
Ammo, loading, build quality, lock time and barrel length are just a few areas where airguns share a lot with BP.

This month, Tom Gaylord tells you which pellets might work best in the powerplant of YOUR gun…whether it’s CO2, spring-piston or pneumatic. Find the best pellet and commence to shootin’!
