Air-Powered Shotgun Now On The Market
Since being introduced and distributed by Air Venturi last fall, the $850 Wing Shot has been selling well in the U.S. and internationally, says Paul Milkovich, director of business development.
“Its effective range is about 25 yards which makes it safer to use for pest control around people and homes. The air chamber for the precharged pneumatic gun holds enough air for 5 shots when filled by a hand pump, scuba or carbon fiber tank.
The Wing Shot has a removable choke and smooth bore barrel. Kick is minimal, similar to a .22. Discharge sound is less than a typical shotgun but still plenty loud.
“We experimented with the number of BBs and shot and found the best performance with 6 and 8 shot,” he says, noting the shot works well for small game, pest management and trap shooting. Air Venturi offers the shot shells in a quantity of 50.
With a .50 caliber bullet, the Wing Shot shoots at 760 fps with enough power to kill game such as coyotes.
“The response has been phenomenal. Air guns are becoming very popular,” Milkovich says.
The Wing Shot can be purchased through Air Venturi and their dealers worldwide.
