Gas Ram


Gas ram air pistols operate under the same principle as spring piston air pistols but instead of a spring, use a lever (sometimes the barrel, sometimes a lever under or to the side of the barrel) to cock pressurized gas strut similar to those used to raise a lift gate in automobiles. These are self-contained air pistols that are convenient because only one cocking stroke is required to ready the air rifle for shooting. They can be very accurate (when the shooter has mastered the technique) as well as relatively quiet. But gas ram air pistols are also inherently challenging to shoot well, and require airgun-rated scopes if one is mounted. The cocking effort can be challenging in the more powerful models.
