HAM Review Center

If you want to check out Hard Air Magazine’s industry-leading, comprehensive airgun reviews, the HAM Review Center makes it easy!

Simply scan down this page and see the lists of air rifle and air pistol reviews. Then click on the model name of the gun you want to see reviewed – you will automatically be taken there to see the complete review. If you want to buy the gun, just click on the links in the review from major airgun dealers like Airgun Depot, Airguns of Arizona or Pyramyd Air – you’ll be taken directly to their site.

Reviews are arranged alphabetically by manufacturer and model. You will also see the HAM Review Scores: these are given in percentages. To learn about how HAM Review Scores are calculated, click here.

HAM Review Center

Outstanding products are awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze HAM Awards. These are awarded on the basis of performance and value described here.

You can also sort the display of results for each table in this HAM Review Center. To sort entries, simply click on the “up” and “down” arrows in the column headings.

Use the “Search box” if you want to find a specific model, or product name, directly. But be sure to spell it correctly, or the search may not work correctly!

AIR PISTOLS

Air pistols do not yet have HAM Awards. However, they will be awarded in the near future, once we have a statistically-significant number of test reviews on which to base the grading system. Thanks for your patience in this!
