A Little History On Compressed Air

The air guns are not a newcomer: the oldest preserved data no less than 1,580.

In fact, 3 centuries certain types of airguns, in sizes up to 13 mm (comparable in diameter projectile weapons of modern war), they were used for hunting, killing them deer and even bears.

These weapons were loaded using a hand pump, and could launch projectiles up to 300 meters per second.

Not only they were used in hunting, but also in combat, repeating weapons exist with this system (the model called Girandoni to be mentioned later).

At this time the guns were very primitive, employed black powder and loaded by the muzzle (muzzle-loading), so that the moisture affected, in addition to producing large clouds of smoke and fire them a noticeable noise.

The airguns not suffer these problems, and indeed France, Austria and other neighboring countries armed their snipers with rifles such as that made them virtually undetectable.

The most prominent model, Girandoni, could fire projectiles up to 21 13mm 13 seconds and had a terminal 100 meters similar to that of a 9 mm Luger current ballistics.

In the Far East they will also soon discovered the virtues of compressed air, designing the Japanese armorer Kunitomo Ikkanbi quality rifle around 1820.

 

Since 1888, WWF carbines Markham Co. became extremely popular, being simple and inexpensive.

In the late nineteenth century there were more than 4,000 shooting clubs with compressed air in England, and many competitions were held because no fields were needed special shot.
