The Avenger PCP Airgun Features.
The versatility, quality, and affordability make it the entry-level rifle to beat.
Mounting a rifle scope is easy thanks to a unique 11mm dovetail/weaver combo rail, meaning most mounts will fit. You’ll also find a Picatinny rail section on the stock’s fore-end for mounting accessories to your liking.
- .177, .22, and .25 cal.
- Pre-Charged Pneumatic
- Side lever
- Externally adjustable regulator
- .177 cal = 1000 FPS, .22 cal = 1000 FPS, .25 cal = 900 FPS
The heart of the Avenger can be found in the externally adjustable regulator. Working in tandem with the adjustable hammer spring, the user can fine-tune their rifle’s performance to best suit their needs. This kind of tuning is above the expected budget-friendly price! The regulator can be adjusted as high as 200 bar, and you can track your adjustments using the reg pressure gauge on the right-hand side of the action. Increasing the reg pressure can be done any time, though decreasing the pressure requires the gun to be degassed first. This is quickly done thanks to the easy access degassing screw found just behind the reg adjustment.
Beyond the adjustments, the Avenger features a smooth side lever action that seamlessly cycles the auto-indexing magazines. This allows for quick follow-up shots, and the fully shrouded barrel keeps your shooting quiet.
And it comes with two magazines, so you can always have more rounds ready to go!
It features a single-shot tray that is a fantastic tool for those days when you don’t need a magazine but want to sit down and shoot at a few targets or tune your gun.
It has a light and adjustable two-stage trigger. There are two gauges for your convenience, one for reg pressure on the right side and one for fill pressure on the left side. Your Reg is also adjustable, and for those fine adjustments, there is a hammer adjusting screw just behind the picatinny rail where your scope is mounted for increasing and decreasing speeds.
Filling the rifle is also a breeze, thanks to the male quick disconnect fitting on the air cylinder’s end. This is covered by a threaded dust cap, which keeps dust and debris out of your fittings and gives the rifle a unique appearance. It has a 180cc air tube that allows you to fill the rifle with up to 300 bar pressure. This enables you to have much more shots than your average rifle. You will be able to shoot up to 60 shots per fill.
Another positive is that with the 90 shore o-rings, you are not likely to have leaks creep up on you out of nowhere, and the Barrel band that comes with the rifle ensures that you won’t get point of impact shifts as it is clamped down on the barrel and both air tubes.
Avenger | slugs and pellets.
This gun is unique to the point that it will shoot slugs and pellets very well. You will shoot lightweight slugs like the Javelin 23 grain and FX Hybrids 22 grain with little effort. Perfect for target shooters and hunters out in the field. You can tune the rifle up to 920fps on a Javelin 23gr slug, which is a massive 40ft/lbs of energy.
The accuracy of the Avenger is beyond belief. Whether you are looking to reach that 100m shot or are a first-time buyer wanting to get into air rifles, the Air Venturi Avenger is the way to go.
What it comes down to is that the Avenger delivers on its promises. The gun goes toe to toe in accuracy against premium guns that cost 5 times as much. It could even be the most accurate airgun you’ll own at this price point.
