Air Rifle

Air Rifle Evaluations.

Air rifle makes and models are popping up  every week with some manufacturer or other, making claims of excellence. We look at every air rifle that comes our way and most of them are either crap, over-priced or are not supported by a bona-fide company that will still be around when they eventually arrive here. As I look into new air rifle models I will keep adding them to the top of this article, so expect to see this article on top of the”Latest News” section for some time to come.

I mention  the Huben PCP air rifle further into this article, well for those of you who keep calling, we have them in Hong Kong ready to ship. They are waiting on a permit from the Chinese Government to ship them to us, once that happens they will come over air freight. Once they get here, expect to see a Slider mentioning it when you load this site. I will also do extensive testing on these beasts that are shooting out to 220 metres using slugs and H&N Pile-drivers. This is taking the PCP air rifle into new territory. Interesting…

Mark IV High Pressure Compressors.

The 1st batch of Mark IV High Pressure Compressors have arrived for those of you who have a PCP air rifle that you are filling with a hand pump. These PCP air rifle compressors have been built to our specification and come with 2 high pressure whip leads and a larger filter. The 2 whip leads allow you to fit the filter in-between them so you have hose to spare, thus making connection to your air rifle easier. The 2 issues I had with our past HP compressors was that the filter is too small (so it requires more maintenance) and the whip lead to short, meaning with some air rifle models, you had to lay them down to fill them. Not now, the compressors come with  2 leads and a larger filter for better water trapment.

Mark IV Scopes and Rings.

We are expecting our stock order on Mark IV air rifle scopes and rings to arrive any day now. These new scopes we signed them up at the Las Vegas Shot Show in January this year. I am more than happy that they will fill a void that will allow us to package price air rifle models both effectively and economically. The scopes have a lifetime warranty.

We have one model specifically built for the spring air rifle fraternity and that is a 3-9×40 AO and comes with a compensated 1 piece scope mount.

Mark IV Accessories.

Other Mark IV accessories include some nicely packaged cleaning kits, Gun Bags, Gun Cases, 300 Bar Scuba Bottle Filling stations and the scope rings that I have already mentioned. We are totally committed to Package pricing new air rifle, scope and compressor packages and through bulk buying, we have managed to be able to reduce prices accordingly.

Air Rifle Pellets.

I have mentioned this previously but was unable to date the shipment. Well now we have a shipment of JSB pellets, currently in production as I write this and due to ship here mid June. The order is around 2 tonnes of JSB pellets.

We have an air rifle shipment from Air Arms that also includes a stock order of their pellets for those of you who keep calling us in search of them. The Daystate stock order is leaving the UK with Air Arms and we also have the Daystate marketed Kaiser pellets too.

From the USA we have air rifle pellets by Benjamin, Air Venturi and some other lesser known pellet manufacturers. From Europe we have some expensive custom made slugs in .22 and .25 to suit PCP air rifle owners that are still searching for that ‘special pellet’, well these could just be them.

Our new Bullpup stocks for Weihrauch HW100 air rifle enthusiasts are here as are the Benjamin Marauder Bullpup stocks in American Walnut. We can supply a bullpup kit for either the HW100 or the 2nd generation Marauders in American walnut complete with components. Alternatively, you can purchase a HW100 Bullpup or Marauder ready to go.

Air Rifle Technology.

Air Rifle technology has seen massive changes since 2010, when new manufacturers started entering the airgun arena in a bid to gain a foot-hold on this emerging sport that has taken off. With almost daily shootings somewhere in the developed world, the noose around gun owners tightens inch by inch. This push against firearm ownership is presently aimed at semi-automatics and big bore centre fire rifles if they even slightly resemble a military weapon.

At present they are leaving air rifle owners alone (to a degree) but guys, please do NOT get complacent about this. Our battle has yet to start as soon as some tree-hugger realises that, “hey, these air rifles are available up to .50 cal… we can’t have that…”. We need to support the Shooters and Fishers party if we want to keep our sport. I have had my rant so let’s continue…

Spring Air Rifle Technology.

Spring air rifles, or ‘springers’ as they are usually referred to, have advanced at a slower pace than Pre Charged Pneumatics (PCPs), but advance they have. The most significant advances have been in piston seals that have moved from leather to plastics over the years. Now we have piston seals if PTFE that are significantly more suited to high powered springers, with yet another seal referred to as a Vac Seal (by Vortek) that is getting popular.

Calibres that were once restricted to .177 and .22, now have .20, .25 and even .30 available to the spring air rifle customer. Power has increased to carry these heavier projectiles, some using heavier springs and others by using Gas Piston technology. The use of synthetics has seen the emergence of what some would call “way out there” looking stocks, claims of 1250 Fps etc, aimed I’m guessing at our young shooters just starting out.

The emergence of cheap spring air rifles from China, Russia, Turkey, Spain and Czechoslovakia has fuelled the demand for spares and aftermarket tuning kits that have now come to prominence. This has led to the arrival of businesses like V-Mach in the UK, Vortek and Maccari of the US, all of whom supply custom springs and seals to improve the performance of these underperforming spring air rifles.

Due to the overwhelming number of different springer manufacturers, spanning many years, Gunroom has found it uneconomical to do repairs and servicing of these springers as obtaining parts is a nightmare. Hence we now only work on what we sell or those guns that have been imported by Gunroom.

PCP Air Rifle Advancements.

PCP Air Rifles have seen the most advances, due in part to there being more parts and a more complex system of high-pressure valving. Daystate and Brocock started using an inertia hammer rather than the more conventional solid hammer used by other manufacturers.  They called it the Slingshot Hammer and it produces consistent pressure resulting in flat bow curves that translate to better accuracy.

Then there is the introduction of electronics that has seen Daystate for example, produce a number of PCP air rifles that now have a computer that regulates the power and shot count. What is more, is that the system is proving very reliable with great shot consistency, accuracy and higher shot count.

The cost of Walnut has risen over the years as logging  has taken its toll of this tree that is sort after for rifle stocks and furniture etc. This has led to the use of coloured laminates that are cheaper, stiffer and provide an ideal stock building material. The use of laminates has seen most manufacturers using them in assorted colours and stock configurations. Even the conservative Weihrauch air rifle company has produced excellent laminates in both PCPs and spring air rifles.

Prices of air rifles have dropped thanks to the introduction of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) that are responsible for mass production of extremely accurate machining together with 3D CAD(Computer Aided Drafting) advances of late. This in turn reduces the cost through ‘Economies of Scale’, and where a manufacturer also uses similar parts on each different air rifle model, this commonality of parts saves money. The Minelli Group in Italy make most of the air rifle stocks you see today as they too are heavily invested in expensive CNC Machines and CAD.

Another advance I think we will see more of in the near future is the hammerless PCP air rifle as seen in the Huben Bullpup. This reduction in moving parts reduces recoil and action movement, however slight, to almost zero. Expect to see more air rifle manufacturers jump on this bandwagon in the next year or two.

Air Rifle Summary.

Finally air rifles are following military examples such as semi-Bullpups (Brocock for example) and full Bullpups such a Daystate’s Renegade and Pulsar. Other air rifle examples that are capturing customers imaginations are the Benjamin Armada and the Kral Puncher Armour, with both their tactical appearances heavily indebted to military concepts.

Go back just 15 or maybe 20 years and look at what was available in the air rifle marketplace then and the reader will immediately recognise the technology jump over the last few years. Think about that and just where will the air rifle be in say, another 5 years, given the speed of technology that is driven by demand and competition; that is providing we are still allowed to own an air rifle then…

Air Rifle Stock Orders

Air Rifle Orders and Stock

Air Rifle Orders at Gunroom have reached unprecedented levels as we are going through a massive expansion over the next 3 months. There are over 200 air rifles due into stock before the end of June, 2019.

Incoming Orders and Stock are a fluid component of Gunroom as they are both driven by Supply and Demand fundamentally. I have an air rifle list below to demonstrate the expansion we are entering into and I will endeavour to update this list periodically to keep you in the loop.

I have taken this step as in-coming PCP air rifle stock is sometimes sold immediately it hits the floor, when in fact a prospective customer is hoping to purchase it and so loses out. With this list of in-coming air rifles, you can email Rob and express your interest so he can let you know when it arrives. However, to ensure that the air rifle is allocated to you we would require a holding deposit whereby Rob will invoice you with the serial number etc.

We can send you an air rifle Australia wide, you do not have to reside in Brisbane. All we require is a name and address of a gun dealer to whom we would ship your air rifle.

Air Rifle Pellets – Under Negotiation (2 Tonnes)

We have registered Pellet Warehouse where we will stock most air rifle pellet brands, including many I am sure that you as the reader here, have never heard of. The stumbling block here is freight and we are working to sort that out.

Current Air Rifle Stock

In our UK range, we currently have over 30 Brocock air rifles including Compatto, Compatto Sniper, Bantam Sniper and Commander, .177, .22 and .25 Calibres. Other PCP air rifles include the Daystate Huntsman, Griffin, Wolverine HP, Tsar, Renegade HP and Red Wolf HP.

In our USA range we have some Marauders and Sam Yang .50 cal left. Our Weihrauch stock is low but still have some HW97Ks, HW80, HW30, HW100 and HW110. We also have the full range of MTC scopes currently.

If you continue to watch this space, you will be able to see the air rifle Special Offers as soon as they come online. We will be offering the Kral PCP air rifles in a package with scope, mounts, cleaning kit and high-pressure compressor starting from $1500 plus freight. The price reductions are made possible by bulk purchasing the High-Pressure Compressors, new scope range, large air rifle orders and competitive freighting, all these go into reducing the package prices.

We are also packaging the Brocock Compatto PCP air rifle in .22 with a Huma Regulator.

Daystate Red Wolf - Midnight Air Rifle


The Red Wolf Transition.

Red Wolf, is it just another Daystate model? If you have handled a Red Wolf or shot one, then the answer is a DEFINITE NO! The finish of both the laminate and Walnut Red Wolf air rifles is first class, like what we have come to expect from Daystate, the ergonomics are great, action is smooth as silk and the accuracy is better than the shooter in my opinion.

When the Special Edition Serie Rosso was unveiled last year, we saw the Red Wolf in a red/black laminate, with it being 70% red and 30% black. I did not expect Daystate to add a Red Wolf to their line-up as this did not happen with the blue laminated Saxon Special Edition that preceded it. When they announced that the Red Wolf will be added to the line-up, we could see the attraction in the marketplace immediately.

The production Red Wolf is presently available in 70% black and 30% red, being the reverse colours of the Special Edition Serie Rosso. It is also available in Walnut for those of you hard core air rifle owners steeped in tradition. There is also going to be an addition to the Red Wolf line-up that I cover at the end of this article, so hang about.

In October, the Extreme Benchrest Championship 2018 was held at Mesa, Arizona where 160 air-gunners from across the globe attended. There is a link at the end of this article that will take you to the results page and a full competition article. But to get straight to the point guys, here are the various results that were achieved and there is NO denying that the Daystate Red Wolf is a giant slayer.

Summarising the Red Wolf.

We have sold some .22, .25 and .303 calibres of the Red Wolf production model. During testing several things jump out at you.

Firstly, is the high shot count with the .22 cal Red Wolf that still retains its velocity to the very end of available air. Accuracy is assured with this calibre for target work. The .25 is not quite as air reserved as the .22 but for that inconvenience, you get a powerful PCP air rifle that is at home hunting and doing target work.

Lastly is the .303 calibre Red Wolf that packs a real punch. I am currently sourcing additional pellets for this beast so we can get the best out of it. This PCP will suit the hunter down to the ground with a range of 100 metres the .303 is deadly.

We have an order of 100 High Pressure Compressors coming from China together with a large order of Mark IV Scopes (we have the exclusive marketing for this brand) and 20 more PCPs from Daystate. These include the Red Wolf in .22 & .25, Red Wolf Midnight in .22 & .25, Red Wolf Safari in .22 and Wolverine Forester in .22 and .25. I tell you this now as we will be doing package deals on the Red Wolf and other PCPs that include a Compressor, Scope (MTC or Mark IV), Gun Bag/case, Cleaning kit, Extended Warranty and Service Plan.

In a couple of weeks, I shall be posting the chronograph results of each of these 3 calibres for those of you who are still sitting on the fence. All in all, the Red Wolf is the most exciting air rifle I have shot while trading as Gunroom since 2004.

Air Rifle Sales

Our Air Rifle sales strategy has recently been ironed out in an effort to make buying an airgun, especially a PCP Air Rifle easier and cheaper than previously. A number of factors have come into play to achieve this, including volume purchasing, competitive shipping and close working ties with suppliers and manufacturers. In the end, you, as a potential customer will benefit in an easy transaction process with an extended warranty as well.

Shipping of air rifles.

In the past I have shipped air rifle purchases with who ever I could get to move them. This came at a cost of anywhere from $120/air rifle up to $450 a gun! If you have read ‘AIR RIFLE INVENTORY AT PRESENT’ would know that we now use DB Schenker to move our air rifles. They are also consolidating our shipments to reduce the cost per item. On top of this, we are bringing in more air rifles at once than ever before. We currently have 31 Brocock air rifles at Customs awaiting clearance and another 80 Kral PCPs on the way.

At the time of writing this, February 21, 2019, we have just received our Daystate order that includes Huntsman, Renegade, Wolverine, Tsar and Red Wolf in laminate and Walnut. Calibres include .177,  .22, .25 and .303 cal. Our USA order that was initialised in March last year has finally turned up (I sh*t you not…) with 2 x Sam Yang Dragon Claw in .50 cal, .25 cal Sumatra, Benjamin Marauders in .22 and .25 cal, AirForce Texan .308.

Shot Show 2019 in Las Vegas.

I spent a week in Las Vegas attending the January 2019 Shot Show that is open only to Dealers, Defence and Security Agencies. It was a massive show and given a week that I was there, I found it impossible to view all the stands. My good buddy Joe Tonga went with me and together we sourced some great products at the right prices.

I also met with numerous International Managers representing some big names in the airgun industry. One such a meeting was with my USA supplier who frigged me about for 7 months or more. The outcome now, is that upon receipt of the payment, the orders will be shipped to us within 7 days and not 7 months as presently. Let’s hope.

To capitalise on consolidating freight, we will be ordering from the USA every 3 months. So, you guys wanting to purchase an obscure air rifle will be assured of prompt delivery. Air rifle orders from the UK and Turkey will also be made every 3 months as well and notification will be given on this website some 4 weeks in advance. Air Rifle orders will require 50% deposit upon confirmation the order is available and ready to ship.

Air Rifle Scopes.

Currently we are carrying the complete range of MTC Scopes and their Rangefinders as well. We are going to supplement these scopes with a new brand that we signed up for at the Shot Show, called Mark IV. These are great scopes and newly developed with Side Focus, Illuminated Reticle, Etched Glass and ED lenses in some models. The initial range of Mark IV scopes are:

5-30x56SF 1st Focal Plane. 30mm Tube, ED Lens.

3-12x44SFIR    2nd Focal Plane. 30mm Tube, Illuminated  Reticle, ED Lens.

6-24x56SFIR    2nd Focal  Plane. 30mm Tube, Illuminated  Reticle, ED Lens.

8-32x56SFIR    2nd Focal Plane. 30mm Tube, Illuminated  Reticle, ED Lens.

3-9x40AO    2nd Focal Plane. Multi coated lens. (Suit Spring powered air rifles).

All the Mark IV scopes have a lifetime warranty.

Kral PCP Air Rifle Packages priced to sell.

Putting together customised PCP purchases is a time-consuming exercise that we are attempting to overcome.  To do that, we have bulk ordered 100 compressors from China together with a large order of Mark IV scopes to establish better pricing that we can pass on to you in a package deal. To that we have 96 Kral PCP air rifles coming in together with parts and accessories.

The package deals on PCP air rifles will be priced from $1535 upwards, depending on the rifle chosen. Kral PCPs will be the fore-runners allowing you to buy a Kral PCP, Mark IV Electric Compressor,  Mark IV 2nd Focal Plane scope, Gun bag, cleaning kit, 3-year warranty  and 3-year service plan on the air rifle. All that with prices starting at $1535. Tell me where you can equal that deal in Australia and I will bare my bum in Spine street…

The PCP air rifles will be pre-tested with a spreadsheet and scanned targets. This has been made possible by a friend of mine, Nick Green, who wrote a program for me that integrates Photoshop, Excel and SIUS software into one package. This effectively saves me over an hour of post editing on photoshop which has caused many delays in the past.

Each Kral will have a couple of modifications done to it prior to testing and shipping. On that note, I need to remind the reader that only air rifles sold or originating from Gunroom will be serviced or repaired from herein due to commitments to our own customers. We have reached that point in the road where service work is not viable for work done on air rifles originating from other dealers.

If you are one of those guys who has unfortunately purchased a PCP or spring air rifle elsewhere and you need work done on it, you will need to take it up with your supplying dealer. Sorry about  that, but we did try and assist everyone who came here and got burnt a few times in the process.

Big Bore Air Rifle Models.

You read that right, big bore air rifle sales are where we are currently moving too. While we have in stock the Sam Yang Dragon Claw in .50 calibre, aka Seneca Dragon Claw, we have on order the new Umarex Hammer 50 cal that we are told will be available in late March to ship to us. This Umarex PCP air rifle is a beast and boasts 700+ Fpe making it the most powerful PCP in the world presently, eclipsing the AirForce Texan .457 cal.

What is exciting is the price, that makes this a really affordable PCP big bore air rifle. Once we confirm the freight, we will put this online. However, if you are interested, please email and he will contact you once the product is shipped and he can confirm the price. We have 6 units only as demand has rationed supply somewhat.

The Umarex Gauntlet above will in all likelihood be the smallest of the Umarex PCP range that we aim to carry.

We shall also be stocking the Sam Yang big bore PCPs in .50, .45 and 9mm, tother with the AirForce Texan in .308, .357 and .457 calibres. I shall be reviewing each of these big bore air rifles as time allows, so watch this space.

Testing Big Bore Air Rifles.

Presently our back-stop maybe insufficient to repeatedly stop the Umarex Hammer’s 700 Fpe so we are fitting intermediate slug cushions to slow down the slugs and dissipate their energy. So, it will not be until March, 2019, that we can target test these hard hitting PCPs, so those of you buying a big bore air rifle before then will only be getting a comprehensive Pro-Delivery of the air rifle.

Future Air Rifle Shipments.

Our next shipment of PCP air rifles is from the UK where we have a current order of Air Arms, both spring and PCP air rifles. Close to that shipment will be another from Daystate and some of the Patagonia laminated PCPs from Brocock.

If you have an interest in any of the 3 air rifle manufacturers above, please get onto us earlier rather than later so we can get your rifle made. That is correct, most of the PCPs by these big three in the UK are only made to order. True story.


Air Rifle Pellets.

We have yet to ship an order of JSB pellets due to shipping and handling costs on an order weighing up to 2 tonnes. Airfreight is not an option and so we are looking at various options presently together with DB Schenkers.

While we will continue to hold H&N and JSB pellets in .177 cal, our main thrust will be from .22 upwards where we want to cater for the big bore fraternity up to .50 calibre. We will of course be stocking the Air-Arms Pellets and Daystate Pellets (Kaiser) up to .303” cal.

Air Rifle Warranty.

At the time or writing this, we have in stock the full range of Brocock PCPs, the Daystates mentioned above together with Sam Yang, Marauders, AirForce, Weihrauch PCPs and springers and a few orphaned air rifles like the Walther Rotex.

Given my introductions at the Las Vegas Shot Show, there are few air rifles that I am unable to purchase overseas, with FX being one (though Hermann’s sell FX to me anyway, so not a big deal). At this point I want to reiterate our Warranty Policy for all air rifles bought into this country, unless otherwise specified, is 3 years. If you buy an air rifle from or through another dealer, providing it has originated from Gunroom, the 3-year warranty will apply.

Daystate Genus PCP Special Edition

New Air Rifles

Air Rifles update.

Air Rifles ordered this last year has been a nightmare, both for the customers that ordered a Brocock PCP and us at Gunroom. Our UK order took 7 months and USA order; though still not here after 8 months, was due to leave the wholesaler by December 30. They didn’t say which year so maybe they mean 2018.

Air Rifle Freight from the USA has gone up from $120/gun to about $480/gun. This has resulted in us using DB Schenker who have come in and slashed the prices from both the USA and UK to Australia rates. You will see these price reductions when we upload the new pricing in January – ignore earlier prices that are on the website at the time of writing this (December 21, 2018).

We currently have a shipment of Daystate and Brocock air rifles in Customs right now. These air rifles include the Daystate Huntsman, Renegade, Red Wolf, TSAR and Wolverine plus the complete range of Brococks including the Snipers and Commanders. This stock order has only taken 2 months and a bit, which is good by historical standards.

Daystate’s Special 40th Edition Air Rifles; the Genus.

We have 2 of the Daystate Genus PCP air rifles allotted to us with a possible additional 2 units should we get orders for them. If you are interested in getting one of these numbered 40th Edition PCPs, please contact either Rob or me by email.

Daystate Genus 40th Anniversary Edition Air Rifles

Daystate Genus 40th Anniversary Edition

This PCP air rifle comes complete with Gold trim, shroud and silencer. However, any that we sell here will be modified so that the shroud is only cosmetic with a blank silencer – it will look identical but will provide no noise reduction. Sorry about that guys…

Current PCP Air Rifles in Stock Order.

The following are currently in Customs (22nd December 2018) and are the line up of PCP air rifles we wish to stay with for a while at least.

Daystate Huntsman PCP Air Rifles.

The new Daystate Huntsman is in the stock order in both .22 and .25 calibres. This PCP air rifle is by far the most popular Daystate available presently, partly popular due to its’ price that allows it to compete with Weihrauch ‘s HW100 and Brocock’s Sniper and Commander, but also due to its accuracy and reliability.

Daystate Red Wolf PCP Air Rifles

Alongside the Huntsman air rifles, we also have the now famous and sought after Red Wolf after its outstanding debut in the USA. While this is a rather expensive PCP air rifle, it does NOT disappoint in looks and performance. Having sold our first Red Wolf to Darren Burgess, the interest it aroused while it was here was unbelievable.

I am part way through an article on the Red Wolf and should have it published by mid-January. It is a multi-part article with a heap of images that should keep you interested. With great accuracy and a shot count of 270, these PCP air rifles will take some beating. We now have the Red Wolf in Black (70%) and Red (30%) laminate and also in the Walnut for the conservative buyer. Calibres coming into stock are the .22, .25 and .303 cal.

Daystate Red Wolf PCP Air Rifles

Daystate’s much sought after PCP air rifles, the Red Wolf in laminate and also in Walnut.

We have both the Wolverine R in High Power format and standard FAC, together with the laminated versions of the Wolverine R and Wolverine P in both .25 and .303 calibres.

Daystate TSAR (12 Fpe)

No Daystate line-up is complete without the Daystate TSAR, with each gun named after a Russian Emperor. This is only available in .177 and 12 Fpe, though I think I can probably re-rate it to 18 Fpe if someone wants to go that way.

The gun has obviously been designed, if not built, by Ataman rifles out of Russia. The similarities between the Daystate TSAR and the Ataman M2S Match can be seen here.

Daystate Renegade PCP

Last on the list from Daystate is the Renegade HP HR in .25 cal. HP stands for High Power obviously with HR refers to the PCP having a Huma Regulator.

Daystate RenegadeR HP PCP Air Rifles

Daystate Renegade HP HR .25 cal

As can be seen, the Daystate Renegade PCP air rifle pictured here is in a dark green synthetic. Presently at the time of writing this, I am not sure whether the stock order has a green or black synthetic. I do have a Pulsar stock in a green laminate that should fit this gun if a customer so wishes to swap the stocks. The calibre of this air rifle is .25 cal and power is stated as 60 Fpe.

Daystate Pellets.

We are also carrying a range of Daystate pellets in .177, .22, .25 and .303 calibres. Due to the high cost of air freighting these pellets, we will limit the number per order to 5 tins.

Brocock PCP Air Rifles.

Currently in Customs are the following Brocock PCPs:

Brocock Compatto MKII and Compatto Sniper.

These 2 Brocock Compatto PCP air rifles are definitely the best volume sellers we have. Why? Simply put, they are short, slim, well balanced, reliable and accurate, on top of that they are also cheap in the big picture.

Brocock Compatto MkII PCP Air Rifles

Brocock Compatto Sniper

Brocock Bantam Sniper PCPs.

This model of the Bantam Sniper is producing great shot counts coupled with accuracy as it is basically a Compatto with a large air tank, different stock and Huma Regulator.

Bantam Sniper MKII PCP Air Rifles

Brocock Bantam Sniper with MTC Scope

Brocock Commander Air Rifles.

The Commander is the all-new model from Brocock that comes with a tactical appearance that will appeal to the cowboys out there. The action is the same as the Bantam Sniper, just in a different stock with a Cerakote option.

Brocock Commander 480cc Carbon Bottle Air Rifles

Brocock Commander 500 Black air rifles

Brocock Commander 500 Black Air Rifle

All Brococks are available in .177, .22 and .25 calibres and come with Huma Regulators where stipulated. However, we only have the .177 in the Compatto presently.

Mark IV Scopes.

We have an order of Mark IV Scopes coming that includes the best sellers of their range, some with the new ED lenses. For those of you unfamiliar with Mark IV, they come with a 5 year warranty and specialize mostly in the larger style of scopes like this 5-30×56 First Focal Scope below:

Mark IV First Focal Plane Scope

Mark IV First Focal Plane Scope 5-30×56.

MTC Scopes.

At the time of writing this, we have the complete range in stock with plenty of the Viper Pro MTC Scopes in 5-30×50.

Air Rifles Summary.

We currently stock Brocock, Daystate, Cometa and Weihrauch, with AirForce, Marauders and Dragon Claw .50 cal on the way (after 8 months…) here with DB Schenker, so you can be sure they get here this time.

We will carry a range of AirForce, Benjamin, Kral and Sam Yang (Eun Jin aka Seneca) air rifles over the next year. Now that there are 3 of us working here, we may just be able to stay ahead of the curve with air rifles, sales and servicing.

New Air Rifle Stock

Air rifle inventory at present.

Air rifle sales, associated inventory, service and tuning are what sets Gunroom apart for other gun shops. Why? Because air rifles are the only firearms we stock, sell and service. This is a one-stop air rifle shop in Spine St, Sumner, Brisbane, Australia.

When it comes to buying a new airgun, you, as the buyer, need to establish the following:

  1. Can I get service from this gun shop?
  2. Do they have a qualified armourer?
  3. Do they do factory warranty work at the shop or is the gun sent away?
  4. What warranty do they offer?
  5. Do they test the gun before I get it?
  6. Do they have the experience to not only sell airguns but be qualified to advise me?
  7. Can the gun shop supply all the accessories I may require?
  8. What happens if I am not happy with the gun I purchase?
  9. Can the dealer supply me with an air rifle that he is not an agent for?

These and other questions I hope to answer fully in this introduction to Gunroom and what we do.

Air rifle services.

At gunroom, we have a fully equipped service centre to handle PCP air guns, spring air rifles and PCP compressors.

At the time of writing this, Lewis Reinhold handles servicing and tuning of the spring airguns. I handle the PCP airguns, tuning them, air rifle testing on our test range and compressor servicing. I am Gunroom’s licensed Armourer, licence #51001277.

Air rifle warranty.

At Gunroom we do the warranty on ALL the guns sold by ourselves. We also do the Weihrauch air rifle warranty work in Australia. We do not send out any air rifles for warranty work on our branded agencies.

Gunroom also offers a 3-year extended Warranty to PCP air rifle buyers at a very reasonable rate. Also under offer is a 3 year Service Warranty, whereby Gunroom will do periodic servicing of your airgun each year over 3 years to keep it in good shape.

Air rifle Testing at Gunroom.

We have a SIUS 25/50 Electronic Target System that gives you unmatched tolerances replicated on the computer screen. This system is employed in the Olympics for accuracy, reliability and durability. This is the system we test air rifles on, in-house.

With a new air rifle being tested, we do not expect 100% accuracy out of the box, as the barrel is new and unleaded, the action and components are yet to be seated. A result showing a group of around 11mm outside diameter at 25 metres on a new PCP is acceptable. The owner of the rifle will find that over 1000 shots the accuracy will improve too, let’s say down to 9mm.

Remember that the pellets used are unsorted and to improve the rifle further, you would need to sort the pellets by weight, size and lube. Try different weights in the gun and resize the pellets and try them. Then try different lubes. Try different hammer settings and even different regulator settings. That is what it takes to tune the gun. It is not a 5-minute exercise, but the results are well worth the effort.

Air rifle experience at Gunroom.

Between Lewis and myself we have probably close to 40 years experience on air rifles. Hence we feel qualified in what we offer and our ability to match you with the correct air gun.

We stock quite an extensive range of air rifle accessories to help customise your air rifle and improve its performance and aesthetics. We source after-market parts and performance accessories that we test before we market them. You are getting air rifles sourced, selected, sold and set up by air gunners, period.

If you were to buy an air rifle from us that you later felt was not suitable for you, then bring it back sooner rather than later. I think we would want the gun back within 2 weeks and unmarked. We will then willingly set you up in another model of air rifle at no cost other than the price differential.

Sales and admin are now handled by Rob Marx while I assist with sales and do the technical and website. With 3 of us here you should experience a drastic improvement on timing, repair turnover, shipping and service compared to when I was running this alone.

Air Rifle Brands supported.

At Gunroom we support the following air rifle brands:

  • Air Arms – Spring and PCP air rifles
  • Benjamin Marauder and Armada only
  • Brocock – PCP air rifles
  • Daystate – PCP air rifles
  • Kral – Spring and PCP air rifles
  • Sam Yang (aka Seneca & Eun Jin) – PCP air rifles
  • Benjamin (Marauder & Armada only) – PCP air rifles
  • Weihrauch – Spring and PCP air rifles

Below we have the Brocock Commander in Cerakote with an MTC Scope.

As I suspect most of you are familiar with what we stock apart for Kral and Sam Yang, below you will find a cross-section of their air rifle models:


Kral Puncher S Bullpup Synthetic Air Rifle

Kral Puncher S Bullpup in a Synthetic Stock

Kral Puncher Nemesis Bullpup Air Rifle

Kral Puncher One Bronze PCP air rifle

Kral Puncher One Bronze PCP air rifle

Kral Puncher One T Black PCP air rifle

Kral Puncher One T Black PCP air rifle

Kral Puncher Armour Black PCP air rifle

Kral Puncher Armour Black Bullpup PCP air rifle

No line up is complete without the black sheep of the family. This should suit you cowboys out there.

The Kral order is large and as a result, we will have most of their models and calibres. As many of the actions are the same, I will be doing a modification to all the actions prior to dispatching them. This will ensure you get a quality tested and modified PCP air rifle that shoots well and is reliable.

Of course we still stock and sell Weihrauch PCPs, both the HW100 and the HW110:

Weihrauch HW100T PCP Air Rifle

Weihrauch HW100T with Hawke Sidewinder 8-32 x 56 Scope.

Below you can see a couple of the Sam Yangs coming in.

Dragon Claw 50 Cal PCP Air Rifle Dual Tank

We can buy in just about any make and model of air rifle providing it is in stock with the supplier at the time of ordering. We had major hold-ups (out of our control) during 2018 where one order took 7 months to get here and the other nearly 9 months. This resulted in many cancelled orders and frustrated customers, not to mention us.

You will see our air rifle stock, especially PCPs, will eclipse previous holdings coming into the early months of 2019. Our stock orders of Brococks and Daystate PCPs have arrived into Customs and we are awaiting delivery as I write this (9/1/2019).

Scope stocks are presently up with the entire range of MTC scopes in stock. We also have an order of Aeon Scopes and another order of a new brand that has just entered the marketplace – more on that later this month. Bottom line is that we shall shortly have at least 40 models of scope to choose from, all in stock.

Over the next 2 months, you will see a shift in our marketing as we will be offering package deals of PCP air rifles with scope and compressor all together at a saving to you. Most of this has been made possible with bulk buying and a shift to more competitive freight services; DB Schenker.

Air rifle freight.

The year 2018 saw prices for shipping air rifles into the country and in fact, across Australia too, sky-rocket out of control. This has resulted in us using DB Schenker to import all our air rifles at a large saving that we will pass onto you. This will be reflected in the prices of air rifles and scopes from hereon.

I hope that we can serve you better now there are three of us and we have hopefully sorted out the supply issues. We can presently ship you an air gun Australia wide within 2 days providing we have stock. A PCP air rifle and compressor package would be shipped within 3 days maximum.
