Many firearms burn a propellant, but pellet guns fire projectiles using compressed air or other gases. Air guns generally use metallic air rifle pellets, however some use plastic projectiles instead and are known as airsoft guns. The oldest confirmed mechanical air gun dates back to around 1580. During the 17th century, pellet rifles were used during warfare and to hunt big game. Air guns had several advantages over the primitive firearms of the day and could be fired in wet weather. Pellet pistols and the pellet rifle have changed over time into what we know them as today. Discover more of their history when you peruse our wide selection of antique and vintage reprints.
