Airguns. They have a vastly different connotation here in the States than in the UK and Europe. Since Americans aren’t as limited by regulations, they have access to a plethora of different firearms. Airguns are only seen as “first guns” for children learning to shoot. To the UK and other parts of the world, airguns are the only firearm that they can posses for hunting and sport. This has led to other countries developing better tech for airguns, making them more sophisticated and more accurate.
Airguns have steadily gained popularity in the United States due to the fact that they’re lightweight, versatile, and fairly in-expensive.
This leads us to the main point of this piece: this week we’re featuring a sweet (airgun) build from Corey K!
Now, take a moment to study this build. Right off the bat you should notice that there isn’t a typical buttstock, but instead a tank for air. Also, there’s a slot cut in the handguard to allow the piston system to function.
Below is the beginning of this build, an AirForce Texan Big Bore Air Rifle in .357 / 9mm. This bad boy would set you back about $1000. According to Corey, he had to shave off a decent amount of metal to mount everything correctly.
This build features a custom handguard from us here at Unique-ARs, AR-P.E.P.R. scope mount from Burris, Buckmasters scope from Nikon, and an Airlite Series “Honeycomb” skeletonized aluminum pistol grip by Guntec.
With the suppressor added this build measures about 4′ 9″ long.
