2 – Diana Outlaw
3 – Weihrauch HW100
4 – Umarex Gauntlet

Congratulations to the five companies with these reviews!


Most Popular Airgun Types

It’s easy to see that HAM readers are most interested in rifles. Our Top 20 airgun reviews contains 17 air rifles and 3 air pistols.

As for power plants, the results are dominated by PCP air rifles, as you would probably expect:
– 11 were PCPs
– 4 were spring/piston
– 4 were CO2-powered
– 1 used a gas ram


Most Popular Manufacturers

When it comes down to manufacturers, it’s clear that German brands rule! The brand names picking-up the most reads of HAM reviews were Diana and Weihrauch. The total number of their test reviews read was almost identical.

The Number One most popular brand was Weihrauch. But Diana was incredibly close at Number Two, with just 0.8% less views of their test reviews. Both these companies had three models in this Top 20 airgun reviews list.

The third most popular brand was SIG SAUER, also with three reviews in the HAM Top 20 list. This position is a clear indicator of the power of the SIG SAUER brand, as their guns were all CO2-powered and two of them were pistols. These, as we know, were relatively less-read categories of review by you – HAM readers.

Congratulations to all three companies!
