There are some must have add on’s for your air rifle that are going to enhance your air rifle experience. Certain add on’s are a must because your air rifle just cannot function as well without them. Other add on’s are not really necessary but they are really nice to have.
Building up your collection of air rifle add on’s does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. You can build up your collection of accessories over time so you do not feel the financial pinch. Let’s take a look at what the must have add on’s are for your air rifle first.
Scopes and other Optical Enhancements
You need a scope! Of course you can get by with a standard no frills scope but it is nice to have at least some of the bells and whistles that are available. The price of a good scope is a lot more affordable than most people think.
The goal when shopping for a scope is to look for an added value-something that you get for free that is offered by the manufacturer. Of course you want to ensure that the scope will zero nicely and that it will avoid things like moisture build up and fog.
Here are a few really good options when it comes to an air rifle scope:
This scope is an excellent example of an “added value” scope. It is a reliable scope and it has the added value of the free mounts. A lot of scopes do not offer the free mounts and you have to buy them separately which of course tacks on additional costs.
