Comments: The Air Venturi V10 is a perfect entry-level pellet pistols for anyone looking to get into competition shooting. The single stroke pneumatic pump, rifled steel barrel, and precision adjustable sights provide reliable firing for 10-meter target shooting. It can be tailored to your hand with a fully adjustable trigger and hardwood palm shelf. The power plant is completely recoil and vibration free, allowing for dead eye accuracy with every shot.
The pistol to buy if you wish to shoot better -- save up & get it.
Fantastically accurate pellet pistol (after you sight it in). The manual is a little lacking in info, so just know that you can adjust the rear sights up/down & left/right 'til you're zeroed in. You can also adjust the width of the rear sight (by turning the recessed screw on the left of the sight) so that they're wider (they come very close together).
I bought a couple of CO2 pistols so I could shoot at home (a 1911 & a Mauser), but they're simply not accurate (fun tho), & I find the magazines always cack out after a while. This Air Venturi is as accurate as my (real) Colt Gold Cup 1911 & my vintage Hi-Standard Victor .22 target pistol.
The only con is that the wood grips come with sharp edges & should be shaped with a Dremel tool or a file ... as well as the annoyance of the sharp edges, the contour of the wood underneath the trigger guard is too high: you can't get your hand as high as possible in line with the barrel (for accuracy) unless you shave them down... this is a small matter tho. BTW the kind of pellets matter: the RWS R 10 Match 8.2g pellets don't shoot in my gun (too tight?), so I use JSB Exact Premium and H&N Finale Match.
A wonderful pistol.
In this table top preview video I take a look at three new products from Air venture that we are now carying in our Online Replica Airguns Store.
First off is yet another rebranded KWC 1911 CO2 Blowback BB Pistol, this time with John Wayne Licensing in the classic 1911 A1 version with a distressed look. What can I say, people just can't get enough of these KWC 1911's and with all the choices out there you are sure to find something you like...
When it comes to accuracy, match grade pellet pistols are going o be your best bet, not always the most powerful but they are sure good at driving pellets down range with super small groupings. The Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol is no exception to this statement and considering all that it offers it is fairly reasonably price for a match grade pellet pistol of this caliber.
Right off the bat I have to admit that my Chrony Chronograph stopped working, all I get is gibberish on the screen (Strike two for Chrony!). So I was not able to get any personal Chronograph results even though I even tried using my Airsoft Chronograph without success :( I did however watch a few other Youtube Video reviews where users tested out the FPS using a similar Chronograph and the Air Venturi V10 Match Pellet Pistol should get right around 390 fps using 7 grain lead pellets, this is close to the 400 fps claimed velocity...
