Webley Tomahawk – $75.00

The Hard Air Magazine Christmas Gift Guide 2016

We’ve not tested this gun ourselves, but it’s certainly a great value with walnut stock and good looks. For someone wanting an unusual break barrel springer with a pedigree name, Airguns of Arizona has a limited number available at a blowout price. You’ll need to hurry for this one!

JSB Jumbo Exact Pellets – $12.99 and $17.99

The Hard Air Magazine Christmas Gift Guide 2016

Look at almost any HAM air rifle test review and you’ll see that these JSB pellets shoot well in the gun. In many cases, these JSB pellets prove to be the most accurate in HAM testing. For any shooter who thinks that all pellets are the same, here’s a chance to try quality pellets and find out the difference they make to their shooting. No-one can have too many pellets and these make great Christmas Gift stocking stuffers!

Beeman Longhorn – $99.99

The Hard Air Magazine Christmas Gift Guide 2016

HAM tested this break barrel springer and it earned a Gold Award for its combination of quality, performance and value. The black, thumbhole stock looks contemporary and is comfortable to shoot. Combine this with a Leapers UTG scope upgrade (below) and the new owner will really be able to maximize the Longhorn’s performance!

SIG SAUER Texas Star Spinner Target – $69.99

The Hard Air Magazine Christmas Gift Guide 2016

This is the best airgun target we’ve tried this year! The Texas Star target works well with most .177 and .22 caliber airguns. The target faces fall back when hit. This unbalances the star and gives the chance for the shooter to practice hitting another target while the star is still moving. Great practice for hunters whose quarry doesn’t always obligingly sit still. And yes, those are the marks from pellet hits on the paddles during our testing!

Omega Super Charger Air Supply System – $1879.00

The Hard Air Magazine Christmas Gift Guide 2016

The Christmas gift for the PCP airgun owner who has (almost) everything. Having your own air compressor is an incredible luxury! HAM reviewed this high pressure air compressor and was delighted with how simple and easy it is to use. This is definitely one of those things that you wonder however you did without, once you have it. Once you have your own compressor, there’s no going back!

Leapers UTG 4 x 32 Scope and Rings – $39.97

The Hard Air Magazine Christmas Gift Guide 2016This great value scope is an ideal upgrade for all those airgunners who purchased a bargain-priced break barrel springer and scope combo. It fits just about every “1,000 FPS air rifle” out there. The optical quality will amaze anyone who has only ever used a bundled 4 x 32 scope and the mil dot reticle is essential for any airgun scope. A better scope is one of the easiest ways to improve a shooter’s accuracy and this one does it without breaking the bank!

Umarex NRA Colt Peacemaker CO2 Pellet Pistol $159.99

Air Arms Galahad Air Rifle. $1,699.99

The Hard Air Magazine Christmas Gift Guide 2016

HAM Publisher Stephen Archer is swooning over this one! We checked-out a .25 caliber model and can’t wait to give the .22 caliber version a full HAM test. Galahad is the latest – and possibly greatest – from Air Arms. It’s brand new and would be a wonderful choice for any PCP shooter. If there’s no limit to your gift budget for that VERY special airgun shooter who just must have the latest bullpup air rifle, the Galahad has to be on your Christmas gift short list!
