    I only use air rifle for squirrel hunting in trees to many houses around nowadays to use a 22 will kill reliably to 40 feet may take a while for them to bleed out and fall

It is a single cock,spring piston, 1000fps. No other info is on any of the paperwork or packaging.
    If you are shooting a 8gr .177 pellet, 30-40 yards with good shot placement.

    Yeah with the new nitro pistons they have out now, the pistons never go bad. Works fine in all weather because theres no oil for the cold to thicken. And you can leave the gun cocked as long as you want without it loosing power. If you leave a spring cocked it weakens it.

    Was just outside sighting in the scope, since its been sitting all winter.
    This gun has some good power. Pellets bury themselves about a quarter inch in an 8inch think log at 25 yards away.
    I wouldn't underestimate the power of air rifles of today.

    Small Game Hunting With An Air Rifle

    Any of you have an air rifle? This one is mine.

    This is a Remington NPSS (Nitro Piston Short Stroke) .22 cal. with a CenterPoint Optics 3-9x40AO scope.
    Not to mention it's MADE IN THE USA!!!

    It uses a nitro piston instead of a spring piston. The nitro piston is way better.
    Mine is also wrapped in that camo wrap I have.

    The pellets I use are the polymag predator 16 grains, .22 cal.

    Here's a good review on the gun.
