Air or pneumatic pistols and revolvers are in most cases used for self-defense or entertainment, as well as for sport shooting. What caliber and brands will you find in the Zarimex gun store in Sofia, what is the Blowback system and the individual characteristics of the different types? Let's see!
What are the features of air pistols
Similar to their combat counterparts, this type of pistols and revolvers have a significant difference in their working mechanisms. The basic concept in their functionality is based on the conversion of energy from compressed gas into kinetic energy, which in turn launches the ammunition. In the form of gas it is possible to use ordinary oxygen or carbon dioxide (CO2).
Do you need a permit to use them
Air pistols and revolvers do not require a special permit. That means, that the models offered on the Zarimex site do not require you to have a permit for use, but some of the models need to be registered in the regional police office within the statutory period. When making such a purchase, it is advisable to check for the current regulations and amendments to the law.
What types are there
Among the range of air pistols and revolvers, according to their operation principle, they are divided into three main types:
- Gas cylinders - based on high pressure CO2, these models work with special gas cylinders, which can weigh 8 or 12 grams. The main disadvantage is that they are influenced by ambient temperature;
- Spring-piston - a spring mechanism is used, whose kinetic energy of the spring fires the bullet. They are not affected by the ambient temperature, but cannot boast of great long-range;
- Multi-compression - combines the advantages and disadvantages of the above two types.
Gas cylinder models or those that work with compressed air are the most common and are suitable for short-range shooting. They are powerful and depending on the type you handle - pistol or revolver, you have the opportunity to use lead pellets or balls.
What is the BlowBack system
This is actually a mechanism which cycles a slide or bolt to better simulate a real firearm's operation. However, this system also has a disadvantage, which is expressed in the higher gas consumption when firing and reduced initial firing speed.
