The air gun uses the trigger of a spring or piston to propel the lead. It is a single-shot weapon that must be reloaded between each shot. Before each shot, it is necessary to bend the barrel to compress the air in the chamber and thus release the projectile. With the air pellet gun, it is impossible to fire in multi-shots.
Used for recreational shooting, the air pistol is available for sale over the counter for adults. Discover our models and do not hesitate to contact us by phone if you need help.

What does the law say about the air pellet gun ?
Like the CO2 pistol, the air gun is a category D weapon. It is therefore freely available to people over 18 years of age.
On the other hand, it is forbidden to carry and transport it without legitimate reason. If you are carrying it, the police will establish the legitimacy of the reason. You have to go to your shooting club: legitimate reason / You are walking around with your weapon in a public demonstration: illegitimate justification. If the reason is inadmissible, the police may fine you.
