Air Venturi’s Avenger: Premium Features, Affordable Price

Air rifles have made astonishing improvements in performance in the past couple of decades, and as a result, they have become immensely popular in the U.S. and abroad. They’re no longer relegated to plinking and small-game — modern air guns are capable of big-game velocity and terminal performance — and they’re much more powerful and more accurate than the guns you might remember from your childhood.

Beginning airgunners often start with basic break-action models (called “springers” because they operate on a spring piston) that have to be hand-cocked before each shot. Springers are great guns for their intended purpose, but many users soon seek the improved accuracy, better velocity, expanded caliber choices and repeatability of a precharged pneumatic air rifle — a PCP.

PCP-powered guns offer myriad benefits, including smoother shots, reduced barrel vibration and inherently better accuracy. They’re powered by compressed air and can be shot many times before the air needs to be refilled, either by a hand-operated pump, a compressor, or a pre-filled air tank.

All of those advantages don’t necessarily come cheap, and quality, accurate PCP air rifles can run into the thousands of dollars depending on the use — but the good news is, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get into the PCP game.

Pyramyd Air is the largest air gun retailer in the world, servicing hundreds of thousands of customers over its more-than-25-year history. The company specializes in getting buyers the right air gun for their needs. Their number-one best-selling air rifle last year? The affordable and accurate Air Venturi Avenger.

Anyone looking to dip their toes in the PCP waters would do well to consider the Avenger, which is designed as an entry-level gun that doesn’t skimp on quality or features. In fact, it offers many features typically found in $1,000 guns, including an adjustable hammer spring and a regulator. Yet the Avenger retails for only $349.99!

If you’re a hunter, you’ll appreciate that the Avenger weighs just 6 pounds, making for comfortable carry afield, and mounting points for swivel studs are included if you prefer a sling. A 11mm dovetail/Weaver combo rail allows you to use most popular mounts to add a scope, and a Picatinny rail on the forend lets you add a bipod, lights and lasers, or any other accessory you like.

The regulator is externally adjustable up to 3,000 PSI, and between that and the hammer spring, you can fine-tune your Avenger’s performance to your exact preferences. You can increase the pressure at any time, and decreasing the pressure is a simple matter after the gun has been degassed, accomplished via an easy-access degassing screw.

The sidelever cocking action is smooth, and the gun comes with two auto-indexing magazines and a single shot tray. The two-stage adjustable trigger and shrouded barrel contribute to the Avenger’s outstanding accuracy.

Max fill pressure is 4,351 PSI, and when it’s time to fill it up, you’ll find that simple, thanks to the male quick-disconnect fitting on the end of the air cylinder (protected by a threaded dust cap when not in use). A reg pressure gauge on the right-hand side and a fill pressure gauge on the left-hand side let you stay mindful and in control of your fill level.

Pyramyd Air offers the Air Venturi Avenger in three calibers: .177, .22 and .25. The .177 and .22 magazines hold 10 rounds, while the .25 magazine holds eight rounds.

Whether you’re new to air rifles or you’re an experienced pro looking for something you can fine-tune, the Avenger offers you accuracy and high-end features at an entry-level price that can’t be beat for value. With a 60-day money back guarantee and a one-year warranty, what do you have to lose?
